We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
Chelsea launch robust bid for Sancho
Figures aren’t disclosed as at now but Footballnus.com can confirm that Champions League finalists Chelsea have submitted a rich bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Jordan Sancho.
Manchester United spent the whole of last season chasing the former Manchester City academy graduate to no fruition and with Chelsea’s attack lacking real potency, a huge statement has been made with a bid for Sancho which from all reporting quarters is enough to do the trick and one must ask what this means for the likes of Kai Havertz, Callum Hudson Odoi and Hakim Ziyech.
Joao Felix is not for sale
You don’t need too many sources to know how crazy a human Diego Simeone is, and when he tells you he doesn’t want to sell a player you had better back off, it’s a clear message to everyone hoping to be able to sign Joao Felix this summer.
Touted to be the next Cristiano Ronaldo, the Atletico Madrid forward has impressed when he’s fit this season, prompting Bayern Munich and Barcelona to court him but Simeone and club chairman have defiantly come out to say the kid sensation is not leaving Atletico any time soon.
Haaland transfer could hamper Kane’s move
We all know Harry Kane has decided to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer, and no matter how much English spoken by the hierarchy of the North London club, the former Arsenal trainee has decided to call it quit.
However, with Erling Braut Haaland hot in demand this summer, it is left to be seen how many clubs have the funds to sign the two, but one certainty is that most clubs will prioritize Haaland over Kane considering the age and injury records.
Manchester City consider big risk on Lionel Messi
Lionel Messi will not be lifting the La Liga title this season after labouring in vain at home against Celta Vigo, and that leaves the Barcelona legend with a decision to make in the summer with his contract at Barcelona winding down.
Messi tried to push for a move away from Barcelona last summer, leading to a league trial and lots of controversy across the footballing world, his decision to stay was forced and he can leave on a free come the end of the season.
Manchester City however are throwing their hat in the ring for the magician.
News from the Etihad says Manchester City want to offer Messi a one year deal to see him try his magic in England, big money for a big player won’t surprise anyone.
Atletico opens door for Griezmann return
Given that Atletico Madrid have ruled out the potential sale of Joao Felix, they have gone further to say they won’t mind welcoming back Antoine Griezmann who they sold to Barcelona two seasons ago.
The Frenchman joined La Liga giants Barcelona in very controversial circumstances but have failed to nail strong performances and the Catalan side will be willing to do without him as early as the coming summer as he hasn’t been able to fit their style.
Atletico will have to pay through their noses for the forward, they are on the brink of the title, which might aid their finances.
