The Catalans are now alleged to have already started negotiations for Pique and Alba to leave this winter, contrary to earlier reports that the Blaugrana wanted to part ways with the duo. Numerous teams may be interested in signing the left-back in Alba’s instance, with Juventus being one of the more well-known ones to have been mentioned in the past.
Barcelona might even propose an agreed-upon termination of Alba’s contract in an effort to hasten the process. Depay’s lack of playing time at the beginning of the season, which was then followed by an injured stint, is another reason Barcelona is considering selling him after the World Cup.
Although his fellow countryman Frenkie de Jong has recently performed well on the field, Barcelona would be interested in selling him for a sizable sum in order to bolster their roster. The midfielder isn’t anticipated to stay through the summer when his contract with the club expires.
According to the Evening Standard, Harry Kane, a striker for Tottenham Hotspur, has decided to postpone contract negotiations until after the World Cup. The 29-year-old striker’s contract has 18 months left, and Spurs don’t want him to start the following season without having signed an extension. However, the England captain wants to concentrate on finishing the first half of the current campaign before traveling to Qatar. Additionally, the Spurs are attempting to get new contracts for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Eric Dier.
The 20-year-old Germany youth international will only have one year remaining on his contract when Ansgar Knauff’s loan to Eintracht Frankfurt expires after this season, according to Borussia Dortmund manager Edin Terzic. Additionally, Ryan Kent of Rangers was observed by Brighton & Hove Albion scouts during the draw with Livingstone last weekend, according to Ekrem Konur. The 25-year-old ex-youth international for England participated in the entire game and assisted on John Lundstram’s equalizer in the 91st minute.
According to Calciomercato, Paris Saint-Germain is one of the teams interested in signing Cher Ndour, a midfielder for Benfica. While the 18-year-old has not yet played for the Lisbon club’s first team, he has excelled in their development divisions. His contract with the club expires in the summer, and PSG is one club seeking to take advantage of this by signing him as a free agent.
Prior to Saturday’s match between the two teams, in which the midfielder won’t be playing, Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez commented about Valencia’s Nico Gonzalez, who is on loan from Barcelona.
When questioned about a potential January recall, Xavi is quoted by Mundo Deportivo as saying: “If it’s an option? Yes, why not? We’ll talk to him, now there’s a break and we’ll decide how the team is doing. But there’s a lot left for January and we’re focused on the upcoming league games. This isn’t the time to talk about reinforcements. It’s true that the football management is working, but it’s early days.”
Mykhaylo Mudryk is a winger for Shakhtar Donetsk, and Manchester City, Arsenal, and Newcastle United are all interested in him, but they won’t be signing him for a bargain transfer cost. In response to the Brazilian’s high-profile transfer from Ajax Amsterdam to Manchester United, sporting director Carlo Nicolini is quoted in The Mirror as predicting that the 21-year-old international from Ukraine will cost “more than Antony.”
