Haaland to replaced Aguero at Manchester City?
Following in the footsteps of his father, Erling Braut Haaland is rumoured to be the number one name on Manchester City’s wish list following the official announcement of the end of Sergio Aguero’s days at the Etihad stadium.
The Borussia Dortmund striker fits the profile and the Citizens have the money to match the German club’s evaluation of the Norwegian. More will definitely come up soon with Chelsea and Barcelona also in the mix for him.
Drama at the Bernebeu with United lurking over Sergio Ramos
Every player is usually linked to Manchester United in every transfer window, rumor mill seems to spin in their direction but with absolutely nothing coming into fruition at the end of the window, but news coming out from Old Trafford says United are monitoring the situation of Sergio Ramos.
Real Madrid and their long serving captain have hit the rocks on agreements, the La Roja defender wants two years on same salary while the capital club is only willing to offer him a year contract, it’s delicately poised at the moment
Buffon to Napoli? Porto?
We know stranger things have happened but veteran goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon seems to be willing to call time on his Juventus career for the second time and maybe for the final time and… holdup… he’s not retiring!
Buffon is being rumoured to be in talks with both Napoli and Porto! We’ll wait to see how that turns out but no one would be surprised, he just won’t go away yet and maybe he thinks he can win the champions league elsewhere, it didn’t happen at PSG doesn’t mean it won’t happen if he tries again somewhere else.
Elneny to extend at Arsenal?
Mikel Arteta made a tongue in cheek statement over the weekend that most Arsenal fans haven’t found it funny, he said he’ll need twelve new players to compete at Arsenal and on Monday, news of Mohammed Elneny’s proposed contract extension surfaced… is he part of the twelve?
No doubt, Arsenal must strengthen to compete, signing Odegaard on a permanent basis from Real Madrid and getting a proven goal scorer are the priorities but an extension for the Egyptian appears more like a step in the wrong direction, of course except it’s a joke from the Emirates.
Rice to Chelsea… again?
Many believed that Frank Lampard was fired at Chelsea on the grounds of his insistence to bring back Declan Rice from West Ham; is Tuchel threading same path now?
Various news outlets are talking about Chelsea’s interests in the young midfielder who could also fit in at the back but Chelsea’s hierarchy don’t see a need to spend big on an academy player that was released for nothing, he would be a big addition but is Chelsea willing to apologize to Lampard and make a U-Turn?
