Deadline day is tomorrow, so things should get hot before 5 tomorrow.
Zouma got knocked out at Chelsea after some late worries.
Kounde to Chelsea may be up in the air after what Chelsea thought was a word of agreement is that Sevilla now want them to pay his 90m release clause so that can be overturned. Although Kounde was not in the match day squad last weekend.
Willian terminated his contract with Arsenal saving them £20m which seems odd but he was never going to play so he wanted out and arsenal wouldn’t negotiate a reasonable fee. Off to Corinthians in Brazil for him.
Saul’s deal with a PL side appears to have fallen flat and he could be stuck in La Liga for at least another year, his contract has been a huge hurdle for all parties chasing him.
Mbappe is apparently at Madrid until January, when he can sign a pre-contract and then travel to Madrid this summer. It makes more sense for all parties, then Madrid can keep the money and use it on Mbappe’s contract and other players.
Camivinga at RM looks to be gaining momentum could be smoke but with some reliable sources reporting a €35m offer today and for a player who is just a year old and not resign could not try Rennes.
Ronaldo medical was done today, wouldn’t expect an official announcement later in the week.
Diogo Dalot was trying to secure a loan move to Boruissa Dortmund but he failed and United want him to stay as a back-up for AWB. Not surprised here because I think Dalot is a good young prospect and good for the future.
However, it looks like Dortmund are pursuing a loan move for Chelsea’s Callum Hudsion-Odoi. He probably won’t play much with Tuchels’ formation and depth chart, so this looks like a smart move for all purposes. Mallen doesn’t look good in a two with Halaand and with 2 wingers on either side of Halaand they would be a bit better I think.
Sabitzer is transferred from RB Leipzig to Bayern Munich for 15 million euros. He had a year left on his contract and didn’t want to quit and BM was his preference, good price for a solid midfield option in a team that is slim there.
Chelsea still have a lot of players to move, I think the current roster is 38 players and guys like Barkley need permanent departures. There are still a lot of moves left.
Maitland Niles is trying to move to Everton but so far Arsenal are unwilling to sell, it could happen tomorrow.
RB Leipzig are looking to link up with Barcelona’s Moriba for a bargain €20m for a very talented youngster. Barca aren’t happy to see him go but they couldn’t offer what RB Leipzig offered in terms of money.
