Barcelona To offer a Player – plus-cash Deal For Kante’s Service
Spanish League Champions Barcelona have reportedly offered a player-plus-cash deal to Chelsea so as to get N’Golo Kante’s signature before the start of the upcoming season.
The World Cup winner is being tracked by Barcelona and Paris St-German this summer according to the Mail as both clubs seek to improve their defensive duties at the center of the pitch so as to lay claim for next season’s Champions League glory.
The same media outlet reported last week that PSG manager Thomas Tuchel told the player’s compatriot Kylian Mbappe to convince him – during their camping in Russia – to join the Westfalenstadion outfits ahead of the coming season.
Meanwhile, Barcelona seem to be leading the race for the 26-year-old midfielder as they are ready to release Andre Gomes as a makeshift in their move to convince Chelsea to release him.
According to Sky Italia, the Blaugranas manager Valverde is willing to part way with the 24-year-old Spanish midfielder, so, he wants to sanction his move to Stamford Bridge and hopes he gets Kante in return.
We reported last night that Arsenal manager Unai Emery is looking at the prospect of signing Gomes this summer to add more quality to his midfield ahead of next season.
In other news, Willian is still Barcelona’s prime target as they want a new winger who could serve as Dembele’s replacement, should the youngster join Liverpool.
PSG In Swap Bid For Chelsea Target
French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have informed Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid that they want to sign Gareth Bale before the end of this summer’s transfer window.
This is according to the publication from the stables of the Independent which revealed that PSG are ready to receive Real Madrid outcast Bale plus cash for star player Neymar.
Brazilian international Neymar is the most expensive player in world football at the moment after PSG activated the €222m (£200m) release clause in his then Barcelona contract two years ago.
Neymar has told PSG officials that he wants to leave the club this summer after growing frustrated with life in Paris.
The 27-year-old is keen to return to Barcelona ahead of the new season billed for next month.
The Brazilian international scored 51 goals in 58 appearances for PSG during an injury-hit time at the Parc des Princes.
PSG officials want to sign Gareth Bale in exchange for long-term Chelsea target Neymar.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has already made his position known on Welsh international star Bale.
While speaking in his post-match press conference shortly after the 2019 International Champions Cup (ICC) clash between his team and German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, Zidane confirmed that Bale is not in his plans.
Ex-Chelsea Star To Join Flamengo This Summer
Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis is set to join Brazilian Serie A side Flamengo on a free transfer this summer.
According to his latest interview as monitored by Goal, the Brazilian international hinted about a move to Flamengo on the back of spending a second spell at Atletico Madrid.
The veteran left-back will return to his native Brazil this summer as confirmed by the player himself.
Filipe Luis was one of the veteran players that left Atletico Madrid this summer after their respective contracts ran out.
He had earlier left Atletico Madrid for Chelsea before he returned to the Rojiblancos at the end of just one season.
Apart from Filipe Luis, veteran defenders Diego Godin and Juanfran have also left the club.
Uruguayan international Godin has already joined Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan on a free transfer.
The former Villarreal player has joined the Antonio Conte revolution at the San Siro.
Atletico Madrid have made wholesale changes to their squad ahead of the new season billed for next month.
The Rojiblancos have signed Mario Hermoso from fellow Spanish La Liga club Espanyol as the direct replacement for the aforementioned Godin.
For Juanfran, Atletico Madrid have signed England international Kieran Trippier from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs In Pole Position To Sign Chelsea Target
North Londoners Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly in pole position to sign Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon this summer.
This is according to the report from the Daily Express which claimed that Spurs are the frontrunners to sign the young English player but they are not ready to pay more than £25m for him.
Fulham want more money for Sessegnon but they are almost handicapped since he has one year left on his current deal with the Cottagers.
Tottenham Hotspur are the only club interested in Ryan Sessegnon.
Apart from Spurs, Ryan Sessegnon has also been linked with clubs like German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund as well as the Premier League trio of Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea.
Ryan Sessegnon broke into the Fulham team during their Premier League promotion campaign from the 2017/18 season.
He scored 18 goals for Fulham as the Cottagers secured promotion to the Premier League via the playoffs.
Fulham won the final of the Championship playoff during that season after the narrow 1-0 win over Aston Villa.
Ryan Sessegnon were unable to replicate their Championship form in the Premier League after they suffered relegation back to the second tier of England after finishing as the worst team in the division bar Huddersfield Town.
Ryan Sessegnon scored three goals for Fulham in the last campaign.
