We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge
from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
Spurs rejected by Fonseca, no Gattuso
It’s no longer news that former As Roma manager Fonseca
walked out of the Tottenham Hotspur job due to tax differences, his former
agency had a waiver for taxes but that can’t happen in England hence the
dissolution of their agreements;
However, news had it on Thursday that AC Milan legend Genarro
Gattuso would replace Fonseca after the former left Fiorentina without even
managing a game, but we can report that Spurs will not be hiring Gatusso as
events didn’t go according to plan. Expect more from that.
Atletico wants around $50m for Trippier
Manchester United are shopping for a new right back after
unsatisfactory forward runs of Aaron Wan Bissaka and their top target Kieran
Trippier is available for sale but at a cost.
Atletico are willing to sanction the sale of the former Tottenham
Hotspur defender but not for anything less than the 43m GBP that he has on his
release clause, while the La Liga winner won’t mind a move to Old Trafford, his
price tag might be an hinderance to the move.
Atletico are known to respect release clauses and hardly
bulge on that, good luck to United on that.
Ashley Young returns to Aston Villa
Ashley Young pulled a Wijnaldum on Burnley as he moved from Inter
Milan to Villa Park having agreed personal terms with the Clarets at the
Aston Villa was home to the former England winger and he has now
rejoined his boyhood club on a free transfer from Inter Milan where he won the
league title in May.
Young joins Dean Smith’s side on an initial one year deal with an
option of another year based on performances.
Tearful Ramos heads to premier league?
Sergio Ramos has left Real
Madrid, the ship has sailed and the super hero now has to move on from the club
he served for 16 years, the question is: Where does the lion of Madrid go from
While Ramos insists the offer was
withdrawn by Real Madrid as he was about to sign, leaving bad blood and
disappointment in the air to deal with, but words on the street have it that
Ramos is on his way to the premier league and close sources say he could be on
his way to the Etihad… we’ll see!
Depay to Barcelona almost done
He is currently lighting up the European Championship, but Ronald
Koeman has confirmed to Sky Sports that Memphis Depay will join Barcelona after
Depay was part of the Lyon side that narrowly missed out on champions
league football and he ran down his contract, making it further hard for Lyon
to deal with their financial challenges.
A host of players are on their way out of Lyon and Houssem Aouar
is another name heading for the exit door.
