Arsenal Transfer report: Signs Super star Youri despite claims
Arsenal want Youri Tielemans and are now confident of securing him amid claims that there have been no Champions League offers for the Leicester City star.
The Gunners missed out on Champions League football and subsequently may not be as busy this summer. Arsenal do still need to make signings though with another central midfielder wanted at the Emirates Stadium.
Granit Xhaka looks set to stay and Mohamed Elneny has signed a new deal, yet finding Thomas Partey’s long-term partner has to be the priority.
Albert Sambi Lokonga isn’t ready for that yet and Arsenal are now very interested in signing Tielemans for that very role.
Links to Tielemans have been gathering pace over the last month or so. There were claims that Arsenal had held talks to sign Tielemans and the initial negotiations were very promising.
Transfer: Christian Pullisic’s moves to Liverpool more feasible than Barca or Juventus
Christian Pulisic moving to Liverpool looks to be more viable than the Chelsea star heading to either Barcelona or Juventus this summer, according to a report from The Athletic.
The Athletic notes that Pulisic’s future at Stamford Bridge is somewhat up in the air. He has been left frustrated over his game-time in Thomas Tuchel’s squad.
The 23-year-old is about to enter the final two years of his contract with the Blues.
Guardiola reveals reason why Barcelona must not sign Lewandowski
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has questioned how Barcelona can afford a deal to buy Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.
Guardiola, however, admitted the Poland striker would be a great fit for his former club.
Lewandowski is trying to force a move to Barca, as he enters the final year of his contract with Bayern. Any possible transfer would require the cash-strapped Barcelona to shell out a significant sum and Guardiola wonders if they will be able to afford it at all.
“I have no idea, to be honest, but would he be a good fit? “We are talking about Lewandowski. He would adapt perfectly well anywhere.
Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge problems facing owner Todd Boehly as club ‘lags behind’ rivals
Todd Boehly’s consortium valued Chelsea at £4.25billion despite the club’s stadium, Stamford Bridge, providing some serious problems which cannot be resolved quickly
Stamford Bridge could give Todd Boehly a serious headache.
During the complicated and multi-faceted Chelsea sale process, there were several elephants in the room.
Most of those difficult questions involved Roman
Abramovich and Russia, but one of them surrounded Stamford Bridge, Chelsea’s home since they were founded in 1905.
While the details around Abramovich and where the proceeds of the sale would end up prompted the vast majority of the questions and complications for the club, bidders, Premier League and UK Government, the stadium also raised a different brand of questions.
The new ownership group are not going to run the club in the same way as their predecessor. They are seeking a return on their gigantic investment – and, besides continued success for Thomas Tuchel’s side, the most obvious way of achieving that lies with Stamford Bridge.
