The rumor mill is already running at full speed in the soccer world. It is high time to list the best and craziest transfer stories of the day.
We start with a shock wave. According to the Catalan radio station RAC1, PSG is considering a bid for Barcelona player Ousmane Dembélé. It cost the Blaugrana 125 million euros two years ago, but was never able to break through due to injuries. Dembélé is in the interest of English clubs, but also of the French champion. According to RAC1, Barcelona would have asked to include none other than Neymar in the deal.
The Brazilian has also been linked to Real Madrid a few times, but the Royal is now mainly preparing for the arrival of Eden Hazard. According to AS, the Red Devil, who is competing with Chelsea in the final of the Europa League on Wednesday, would be presented next Monday at the club of trainer Zinédine Zidane. Real reportedly pays over 100 million euros for Hazard. Meanwhile, the Spanish top club is also working on the arrival of Ferland Mendy, the left back of Lyon. According to Marca, Mendy costs 50 million euros.
In the meantime, according to the BBC, Tottenham is working on the transfer of Giovani Lo Celso. Midfielder van Betis, who was taken over for 22 million euros from PSG after a successful loan, can count on a 60 million bid for his services. However, that was rejected by the Spanish club. Manchester United also shows an interest in the Argentinian.
New adventure for Mignolet
Where would Simon Mignolet play next season? He was first referred to the bank by Liverpool by Loris Karius and then by Alisson Becker. Mignolet wants to play again and according to The Sun the Reds want to cooperate in a transfer if a club wants to pay 17 million for the Red Devil. Bournemouth would already be interested.
Speaking of a Red Devil, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United does not want Romelu Lukaku to go to Inter. According to the pink sports newspaper, there is an agreement between the club of Radja Nainggolan and the striker, but the Red Devils do not want to sell “Big Rom” for less than 70 million. An offer by Ivan Perisic plus 30 million was therefore rejected. Inter already has an alternative in mind with Edin Dzeko.
Who will be the next Juventus trainer? It is a question that nobody can answer for the moment. Maurizio Sarri appears to be candidate number one, while Simone Inzaghi is Plan B. But journalist Luka Momblano, who was almost the only one to predict Max Allegri’s departure, insists that it will be Pep Guardiola. According to the Italian, the current Manchester City coach signed his contract with the Old Lady a few months ago.
