We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
Emergency auctions at Barcelona?
What’s going on at Barcelona? Oh should you be wondering why Trincao was let go on a cheap and many more ready to be placed on Ebay, Amazon and OLX, the club is in debt and can’t even register any of their new signings without balancing their wretched books.
Lionel Messi is a free agent and none of the new signings will be registered without well over 200m Euros; Junior Firpo has been allowed to leave and the contract situation of Phillippe Coutinho still puts the club in limbo, if you need any of their players now is the time to bid, they can’t say no.
Manchester United turn attention to Camavinga
Manchester United have tied up things with Jadon Sancho and reports from reliable sources claim they are in advanced stage on talks with French defender Rafael Varane but it has again emerged that they have opened talks with Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
The young prospect has just one year left on his contract and his form for the Ligue 1 club last season raised his market value drastically, with United likely to say goodbye to Paul Pogba with PSG circling, Camavinga is a ready made replacement and that will be some statement for United in the title race.
Lorenzo Insigne on Spurs radar
He may be on duty at the moment at the ongoing Euro championship but he’s a subject of interest from clubs across Europe – Lorenzo Insigne is the latest bride on the list of Tottenham Hotspur and he might be their pick to replace Harry Kane should he leave for City as being touted.
Insigne is a Napoli legend already and his first choice would most likely be to stay but with financial concerns hovering around most Serie A clubs, the right bid might do the trick but does Tottenham have everything it takes to interest Insigne?
Danny Ings turns down new Saints deal amidst transfer rumors
Sky Sports can confirm that Southampton striker Danny Ings has turned down a new offer reported to be four years from the London club with his eyes set at a move to Manchester City who had enquired about him following the departure of Sergio Aguero.
Ings has been the big man upfront for the Saints since joining permanently from Liverpool but he wants to win silverware with age running against him; the former Burnley striker only has one big contract left as he is on the wrong side of 29 and he will certainly prefer City’s bench to Southampton’s turf.
Rangers sign John Lundstram
If you played premier league fantasy football in the 2019/2020 season, you’d value John Lundstram as he was part of the Sheffield United squad that took the league by storm, scoring here and there and keeping lots of clean sheets.
Lundstram’s contract at Sheffield expired and with the Blades suffering relegation from the premiership, renewal talks hit the rock and he has now joined Steven Gerrard’s Rangers on a three year deal.
