TRANSFERS – FROM LIGT TO PSG, MANCHESTER CITY, LEWANDOWSKI, SUAREZ… THE 12 MERCATO NEWS THAT YOU MISSED ON TUESDAY
PSG are thinking about De Ligt, Manchester City are closing in on a young player from Le Havre, Bayern are starting to think seriously about letting Lewandowski go but want to up the ante, Suarez is offering himself to Juventus as a free agent, Manchester United are looking favourably on Christian Eriksen’s return to form… here’s your mercato bulletin for Tuesday 14 June 2022.
BAYERN WANTS MORE FOR LEWANDOWSKI
While the Polish striker has made it known that he wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer, probably to go to Barcelona, the Bavarians are now asking for 50 million euros according to Catalunya Radio. Demands that complicate the task of Barça.
Our opinion: Demands not really excessive in view of the performances of the Pole.
SUAREZ OFFERS HIMSELF TO JUVE
A little less than two years after his “bogus” Italian exam, Luis Suarez is again associated with Serie A and Juventus. According to La Stampa and La Gazzetta dello Sport, the agents of the striker have proposed him to the Old Lady, who would be looking for reinforcement for his attack. But it is not certain that this return of flame will please the Bianconeri.
Our opinion: A good understudy who could bring a lot of experience to Vlahovic.
CITY CLOSE TO TOURE (LE HAVRE)
Isaak Toure was courted by OM and OL, but he should finally leave Le Havre for Manchester City. According to L’Equipe, the 19-year-old central defender went to visit the facilities of the Citizens and would be convinced to join Pep Guardiola’s team, which could loan him to one of its satellite clubs, including Troyes, which is very interested.
Our opinion: A giant leap and an opportunity to get seasoned at Troyes.
PARIS AIMS FOR LIGT
The quest for a central defender continues for PSG. If Milan Skriniar remains the priority (offer of 50 million, price set at 80 million by Inter), the club of the capital is also interested in Matthijs de Ligt (Juventus), already tracked when he played at Ajax Amsterdam. The Dutch defender, who is under contract until 2024, is also being considered by Chelsea and Manchester City, according to Corriere dello Sport.
Our verdict: A solid backup solution if the Skriniar file falls through.
CELIK STILL IN ROMA’S SIGHTS
According to Sky Sport Italia, AS Roma is still targeting Zeki Çelik. Negotiations with LOSC are still ongoing, even if several million euros still separate the offer (around 6 million) and the demand (10 million).
Our opinion: The opportunity for Celik to move to the next level.
A NEW TRACK FOR AOUAR?
According to the Italian media Il Tiempo, Roma is preparing the departure of Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Armenian is at the end of his contract and did not want to extend the adventure with the Wolf. To replace him, the name of Houssem Aouar would have been slipped to the ears of José Mourinho.
Our opinion: Aouar may not have greater opportunities in view of his season.
BISSOUMA, IT’S IMMINENT
While an agreement was announced in the morning for the transfer of Yves Bissouma from Brighton to Tottenham, Sky Sports now assures that even the medical is already scheduled for Thursday. If it goes as planned, the formalization of the transfer could happen quickly.
