Among the main information transfer window of the day, Wesley Fofana is courted by Chelsea, PSG and Manchester City, Paris will get rid of three midfield players, OM hope to sell Dieng and loan another striker, Real hope to recruit a free Spanish international and sees offer a Chelsea striker, Samuel Umtiti could leave Barcelona…
PSG are preparing to turn a large part of their midfield upside down with three important departures. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, an agreement has reportedly been reached with Roma for the loan with option to buy Georginio Wijnaldum. A purchase option which will become mandatory under conditions and of around 10 million euros. PSG will cover part of the player’s salary. The Dutch international has agreed not to receive a few bonuses for the transaction to be made.
Paris is also in talks with Juventus for Leandro Paredes. Anxious to save playing time before the World Cup, the Argentinian international would have said yes to Juve. The Italians want a loan with an option to buy while PSG want a transfer. As mentioned recently, the Parisian leaders are also negotiating the return of Idrissa Gueye to Everton. While a loan was considered, a transfer could however be the ideal solution for the three parties, according to The Athletic. However, Gueye’s entourage would ask for a contract of three but the Tofees would only offer two.
According The Team, Chelsea would have indeed set its sights on Wesley Fofana to strengthen its central defense in front of the files leading to Presnel Kimpembe and Benjamin Pavard. The Blues could quickly make a first offer for the former Saint-Etienne who recently extended with Leicester until 2027. The Foxes are often intransigent in their sales but could leave the door open in the event of a big offer. The French international hopeful would like to go elsewhere to show himself before the World Cup in Qatar.
As for Koundé, Chelsea could however be doubled again since PSG would also be on the spot. Luis Campos would follow the 21-year-old Frenchman and could take action if the Milan Skriniar case fails. Manchester City are also on the lookout.
Bamba Dieng is pushed out by OM but does not seem in a hurry to leave Marseille. While Freiburg is the only club to have made an offer, the Senegal international would be highly valued by Benfica, according to Footmercato. The Portuguese club could offer a loan with an obligatory purchase option of 12 million euros for the 22-year-old striker. An offer that should certainly not be enough to convince Pablo Longoria.
At the same time, Konrad de la Fuente could also leave the Marseille club. Not used by Igor Tudor since the beginning of the preparation, the American international could be loaned this season. According Report, Sassuolo, Sampdoria, Anderlecht and Burnley would be on the spot but it is Valladollid which would be the most advanced in this file. Alvaro Gonzalez should terminate his contract in the coming hours.
Real Madrid could be looking for a luxury replacement for Karim Benzema. With this in mind, Timo Werner would have been offered to the Merengue according to the broadcast of the Padlock Ser, El Larguero. The people of Madrid would appreciate his profile but would be hesitant about his ability to accept a joker role. If a transaction takes place it could be against 35 million euros or on loan with option to buy.
Newcastle would dream for its part of offering the German international from Chelsea but seems to be going very far in this file, according to Picture, and Juventus could get him back on loan. For the moment, the player would have the will to return to RB Leipzig.
Fabian Ruiz has still not reached an agreement to extend to Naples and could therefore be free next summer or leave this summer. Real Madrid would like to take advantage of the situation and would like to get the Spain international back for free in 2023, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The midfielder would also be on the shelves of Manchester United but the Red Devils would rather aim for an arrival this summer. An offer would have already been made but far too insufficient in the minds of the Neapolitan leaders, according to Il Mattino.
Victorious against his former club, Tottenham, with a great performance from Paulo Dybala, José Mourinho wants to be even more ambitious in the transfer window. According La Repubblica, the Portuguese coach would like to bring Andrea Belotti to Roma. Announced close to Monaco in recent weeks, the 28-year-old Italian international has been free since the end of his contract at Torino. The formalization of his arrival could even be made soon just after Shomurodov’s loan to Bologna.
FC Barcelona would have finally managed to find a way out for Samuel Umtiti. According ESPN, the leaders of Olympiakos should land in Catalonia on Monday to negotiate the loan of a season of the world champion with the support of part of his salary. Umtiti could then find in Greece, in particular, Mathieu Valbuena.
According Fabrizio Romano, Paulo Fonseca would like to recruit Ludovic Blas. Lille would have started discussions with FC Nantes and an agreement is hoped quickly on the side of the Dogues for the French international hope. Les Dogues continue their ambitious transfer window in attack after the arrivals of Cabella and Mohamed Bayo.
RB Leipzig has formalized the arrival of 24-year-old German left-back David Raum. Courted by Bayern Munich, the player signed 5 years and will bring around 26 million euros to Hoffenheim.
