Antoine Griezmann would not have any business in the transfer market this summer as his current club, Barcelona, assured him that he is part of the club’s plan. He joined the club in 2019 from Atletico Madrid for €120 million. Since then, he has not been consistent with Barcelona‘s first eleven which sparked the speculation that all was not well with him at the club. The current contract of the 29-year-old French forward will expire in 2024.
Below are other latest updates from the transfer market:
Adama Traore Transfer Saga
Wolves are likely to be without their winger after this summer as the competition for his signature continues to grow stronger. Earlier, it was Barcelona that looked like a more serious suitor of the 24-year-old Spanish winger but the latest update from the transfer saga suggests that Manchester City and Juventus are pushing harder than the Spanish giants.
Kai Havertz Transfer update
It seems Chelsea football club have become a sole competitor for the signature of 21-year-old German forward, Kai Havertz. Prior to this summer transfer window, a number of clubs were interested in the Bayer Leverkusen forward but the £90 million price tag scared them away. However, Chelsea is still pressing for the signature of the youngster that has scored 17 goals and has made 9 assists in 43 appearances for Bayer.
Barcelona’s interest in Tanguy Ndombele
Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona could launch a strong bid for the signature of Tottenham’s French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. The Spanish club have reportedly started enquiring about the 23-year-old French midfielder. However, the deal might be a part-exchange deal.
Jadon Sancho Transfer Saga
Manchester United have now until August 10 to complete the signing of England youngster Jadon Sancho. The deal has been dragging long before the transfer window opened. United want the player but they don’t want to pay Borussia Dortmund’s asking price of £100 million amid the coronavirus pandemic. If United fail to meet Dortmund’s deadline, then, we might see a new twist to the saga.
Tammy Abraham Makes New demands
Chelsea striker and England international has asked the club to offer him a new contract worth £130,000-a-week. The current contract of the 22-year-old forward with the club will expire in 2022 and he doesn’t want to give any chances at all. So far this season, he has been the club’s most important player that has made 40 appearances in all competitions, scoring 16 goals and has made 6 assists.
David Moyes Transfer plans
West Ham United manager David Moyes is planning to invade Manchester United to sign 28-year-old Phil Jones and 27-year-old Jesse Lingard. The two English stars have not been having the best of the season with United but it will be difficult for them to leave a progressive United to join relegation-threatened West Ham.
Unai Nunez Transfer Saga
Spanish defender Unai Nunez could play in the Premier League at the end of this summer. Three Premier League clubs – Everton, Arsenal and West Ham United are reportedly interested in the services of the Athletic Bilbao and Spain defender.
Neymar Transfer to Saga
The dream of some Barcelona’s fans to see Neymar return to the Camp Nou and partner Lionel Messi might not happen this summer as the President of the club, Josep Bartomeu, insisted that the club is unlikely to sign the 28-year-old Brazilian forward from Paris St-Germain this summer.
Neymar left Barcelona for PSG in 2017 for a world transfer deal worth about €222 million. For any club to sign him at this point, the club would pay close to €200 million which is almost possible amid the coronavirus pandemic that has affected clubs’ finances.
