Barcelona make offer to Frenkie De Jong to leave

Barcelona have made little secret of their desire to see Frenkie De Jong leave the club.

Indeed, a fee has been agreed with Manchester United over a potential move for the Dutchman, who does not seem in much of a rush to move.

Part of the reason is believed to be because of the wages Barca owe hm and the Independent say an offer has now been made.

The Catalan club are thought to be offered to pay the midfielder part of his deferred salary, although that is reportedly £10m short of the real amount.

Cristiano Ronaldo latest

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester might look like a positive thing on the face of it.

While not too much can be taken from preseason friendlies, United have looked impressive during the early days of the Erik Ten Hag era and welcoming back last season’s top scorer should be another boost.

Still, according to The Sun, the 37-year-old is merely returning to tell the United boss he wants to leave now.

Finding a club willing to pay his wages, however, may prove difficult.

Jesse Lingard explains Nottingham Forest move

The sight of Jesse Lingard in a Nottingham Forest shirt is a strange one.

Widely tipped to return to West Ham after his successful loan stint there in 2021, the England international instead opted to move to the City Ground on a free transfer.

Speaking to Forest’s official website, Lingard said: “Miltiadis [Marinakis] played a huge role in bringing me to the club.

“The owners showed a lot of love to me from the beginning and every time we spoke, they were really keen to get the deal sorted out and I loved the aggressive approach.

“That’s what you want as a player, an owner to want you at the club and showing the love and intent that made me want to come here.”

Tottenham latest

While not a new signing in the truest sense of the words, Tottenham fans will be eager to know why Cristian Romero has not been announced as a permanent arrival yet.

The Argentine had a huge impact last season after joining on loan from Atalanta and looks set for another big season under Antonio Conte.

Football.london’s Alasdair Gold has revealed the reason as to why there has been a hold up.

“Cristian Romero, I’ve had a lot of people asking why it hasn’t been announced yet, really, quite simply it’s because it hasn’t actually happened yet,” he told his YouTube channel.

“I’ve been asking about that. When it was first announced it was really complicated and confusing. Spurs announced it as a permanent, Atalanta announced it as a loan, and we now know it is a loan. Everyone I’ve spoken to about this deal has said it’s a complicated one,” Gold said.

“From what I understand about it, it initially was a season-long loan with an option not an obligation to buy him for £42.5m, but it was pretty much an obligation because the criteria that had to be met for it to become permanent were so likely to happen that it was an obligation in all but name.”
