Sadio Mane is open to joining Barcelona within this summer transfer window. The 28-year-old Senegalese forward has less than three years on his current contract with Liverpool but if a player like Lionel Messi leaves Barcelona this summer, Mane could be one of the major players that could be brought in to fill Messi’s void.
Below are other updates from the Transfer market:
Lionel Messi’s transfer saga
FC Barcelona and their talisman Lionel Messi are still on with their transfer tussle. Reports claimed that the 6 times Ballon d’Or winner has told Paris Saint Germain that he would prefer to leave Barcelona for Manchester City instead of the other way round. The 33-year-old Argentine forward still has less than a year on his current contract with Barcelona. Meanwhile, Barcelona’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu has insisted that Messi would not go until the interested club pays his £624 million contract termination fee.
Gianluigi Donnarumma transfer to Chelsea
Chelsea is still in their search for a goalkeeper that will replace their first choice Spanish goalkeeper Kepa. The quest has led the club to 21-year-old Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. The only obstacle now is that Chelsea must pay £50 million to AC Milan before the Italian club would allow him to go. The youngster has less than a year on his current contract with AC Milan.
Asmir Begovic may make his stay at AC Milan permanent
If Chelsea is able to grab Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan this summer, AC Milan would have to permanently sign their 33-year-old Bosnian goalkeeper Asmir Begovic who is on loan at the club from Bournemouth. The veteran goalkeeper has been a back up to Donnarumma and he would prefer to remain in Italy rather than returning to relegated Bournemouth.
Georginio Wijnaldum transfer to Barcelona
The next destination for Georginio Wijnaldum could be Spain because Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona have reportedly shown interest in the 29-year-old Liverpool and Netherlands midfielder. The midfielder has scored 19 goals and has made 16 assists in 186 appearances since he joined the Premier League club in 2016.
