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.
Boehly wants Ronaldo, Tuchel doesn’t
It’s no longer news that Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t want to continue at Old Trafford and he has made his intentions known but the news is that new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly wants the Portuguese star to join his team to replace Romelu Lukaku.
Another news is that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel doesn’t want Ronaldo and it comes from the place of experience following the disaster of the departed Belgian and he would rather go for someone with less popularity to manage expectations.
Barca shuts the door on Traore
If you sell baby oil in the UK, you’d best find your way to Wolverhampton as Adama Traore returns from a loan spell at Barcelona after the Catalonia side refused to activate the buy option in his contract.
Traore registered four assists in his 17 appearances at the Nou Camp but didn’t make a strong impression enough to earn a permanent deal and he has now returned for pre-season with Wolves but he might be looking elsewhere if there’s any takers.
Malacia becomes Ten Hag’s first signing
Tyrell Malacia has joined Manchester United on a four-year contract for a fee in the region of £13m and he becomes the first signing of Eric Ten Hag’s era at the club.
Malacia’s signing could mean that Alex Telles could be on the way out and it’s unclear if the young Dutchman would be a back up to Luke Shaw but feelers are that Ten Hag rate the 22 year-old highly and would give some selection headaches in the coming months.
PSG announce Pochettino departure
