The latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and much more.
Pogba ‘offered’ to Liverpool
The Paul Pogba transfer saga takes a new twist as his agent, Mino Raiola, has reportedly offered him to Liverpool.
Pogba has turned down a contract offer from Manchester United. The midfielder’s current deal expires in 2022. The Red Devils, therefore, could attempt a sale this summer rather than lose him for nothing next year. With a rumored price tag of £45 million, Paris Saint-Germain are his most likely option.
But if Raiola’s latest antics prove anything, it’s that nothing is off the table. The Dutch-Italian agent has apparently discussed the possibility of signing Pogba with Liverpool. The Reds could be open to a deal in January but definitely not for this summer. [Le 10 Sport – in French]
Carvajal extends Real Madrid contract
Dani Carvajal has signed a new contract at Real Madrid that will keep him at the Spanish capital until 2025.
The 29-year-old full-back is a product of the club’s academy. He has made 294 first-team appearances, winning four Champions League titles and La Liga twice. [Real Madrid – in Spanish]
Sevilla reject Chelsea’s player-plus-cash offer for Kounde
The Spanish side seek only cash for Jules Kounde and will not consider any players Chelsea have to offer.
The Blues previously proposed a transfer bid of around €30-35 million-plus Kurt Zouma. But Sevilla prefer cash-only offers and do not plan to accept bids of less than €70 million. The Nervionenses are adamant on this stance, especially as they’ll have to share a portion of Kounde’s sale with the defender’s former club Bordeaux. [Marca – in Spanish]
Grealish’s future to be resolved soon
A decision over Jack Grealish’s future will be made soon.
Despite Manchester City’s transfer approach for the England international, Aston Villa have not given up hope. The Lions have offered Grealish a new contract.
Trippier’s transfer stance of Manchester United move
Kieran Trippier is prepared to play the waiting game in his bid to seal a transfer to Manchester United.
With deals worth £120 million for Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane done, United must recoup funds first. The plan is to offload players to raise cash. The Red Devils could then revisit their interest in Trippier.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer likes the Atletico Madrid full-back and believes his experience, set-piece ability, attacking instincts, and versatility will prove a valuable aid. [Telegraph]
Lukaku rejects Chelsea return
Romelu Lukaku has politely turned down a chance to return to Chelsea this summer.
The Blues want a new striker this summer. Lukaku and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland are their alleged top transfer targets. The former, however, is keen to continue at Inter Milan for a third season.
This turn of events has left Chelsea in an unfavorable position in negotiations with Dortmund. The German giants reportedly seek around £150 million for Haaland and won’t consider anything less. [Gazzetta dello Sport – in Italian]
