It’s that time of the season where everyone monitors breaking news and player movements, we bring to you the peak of the bunch as team try to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.
Tottenham to get Zaniola?
AS Roma might be on the verge of losing mercurial midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo but where will he be plying his trade next season? Tottenham Hotspur has shown interest but what would be the incentive for Zaniolo to choose a move away?
The worst kept secret in the Serie A is the fact that most players see Juventus as the place to be and with Sky Sports reporting that the Old Lady will also look to have the player in Turin, what will Tottenham offer Zaniolo to make him choose London? Antonio Conte?
Arsenal’s Tavares to Marseille
Olympique Marseille are fast becoming an ally to Arsenal after agreeing terms with the Gunners for the loan signing of Portuguese youngster Nuno Tavares, a deal that doesn’t include a buy option.
Tavares already agreed terms with Atalanta a couple of weeks ago but couldn’t agree with Arsenal as the Gunners wouldn’t allow the buy option inserted by the Italian side; Arsenal see some gem in the young left back but he won’t have game time this season with the arrival of Alex Zinchenko.
Marseille also want Sanchez
Alexis Sanchez’ story may not have ended at the top as the former Arsenal and Barcelona man is wanted by Marseille and the deal is very much likely with Inter Milan looking for every means to raise money for a potential Zaniolo bid.
Inter missed out on Paulo Dybala and will not mind the Roma man but can they raise the money to land the Tottenham target? Sanchez has fallen off the top following dip in form from his Manchester United days and could reignite things in France.
Cucurella throws Brighton to the dogs
Who will turn down the prospects of joining the champions in times like this? For the pride? For the bright chances of winning multiple titles? Or for the prestige of playing for an elite side?
Marc Cucurella has handed in transfer request at Brighton to arm-twist the Seagulls into selling the South American, it is left to be seen if Graham Potter’s side will back down. City’s bid of £30m was rejected as the club holds out for £50m.
Sporting and Ronaldo reunion a possibility?
Stranger things have happened in the past but is there a possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Manchester United for Sporting Lisbon because of Champions League football?
It’s known to the world that Ronaldo wants to leave United but can the prospect of rejoining his boyhood club overshadow the size of the Old Trafford club? News outlets are reporting the possibility but we’d love to see how this ends.
