Updated European transfer news last week (Part 2)

This is entirely possible when many big clubs in Europe still want Griezmann. Among them, PSG is considered to be very serious with this deal.

The French team wants to bring Griezmann to join Mbappe and Neymar to become the strongest attacking trio in Europe. Not to mention having him also helps PSG better retain the other two stars before the drag of Real Madrdi and Barcelona.

In addition to the liquidation of Griezmann, Barcelona is currently on a contract extension with Clement Lenglet. The former Sevilla star is currently the only name the Catalan upper class can trust in the center of the execution. Because the remaining two names including Pique are old, Samuel Umtiti is injured. Information from the Nou Camp reveals Lenglet’s new contract will help him nearly double his income. In addition, the cost of breaking new contracts will increase to 300 million Euro.

Another Spanish giant is also active on Techmart. According to a source from the Daily Mail, Vulture is keen to get Sadio Mane of Liverpool. This is the name that coach Zinadine Zidane has long admired and many times shared his desire to work with. This season Mane still plays very well in Liverpool with 16 goals and 8 assists. His contract with The Kop is still valid for more than 3 years. So Real Madrid will have to prepare up to 140 million pounds to get him.

To get this number, it is likely that Real Madrid will liquidate some pillars. Luka Jovic, one of the five recruits of Vulture’s last summer will most likely be the one to leave. Since arriving at the Bernabeu, the former Frankfurt star has performed poorly. Up to this point, he played only 770 minutes and only 2 goals and 2 assists for the Royal team. In the last 3 matches, Jovic is not included in Real’s registration list. There are 3 teams that want to rescue him, MU, West Ham and Napoli. In which Napoli is considered the most positive when the attack is quite thin and ineffective. The price of Jovic is currently around 50 million euros.

Since becoming the new coach of The Blues, Frank Lampard has continuously discovered and hit many young stars of the team. Under his direction, Tammy Abraham played explosively and was among the top scoring goals in the Premier League. Mason Mount or Tomori also made clear progress. The most recent is the case of Billy Gilmour. The 18-year-old has consistently performed superb performances in the Blues shirt. The most outstanding is his contribution to their 2-0 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup.

Facing extreme training ability of Lampard, BLD Chelsea is aiming for a new shopping strategy. They focus on potential young players but are unnoticed at low prices. A series of goals have been listed by Chelsea. These include 14-year-old Harvey Gilmour, Billly’s younger brother, Middlesbrough’s Calum Kavanagh (16) and Hartlepool’s younger goalkeeper Brad Young who is just over 17.

In addition to the three young shoots, Leon Bailey is also in the sights of the Blues. This will be Chelsea’s blockbuster deal as sources say they are willing to spend up to £ 85 million to acquire Leverkusen’s player. Bailey will be the perfect replacement for veterans like Willian and Pedro, who are set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

Updated European transfer news last week

Due to the influence of COVID-19, tournaments across Europe were interrupted. However, this makes the player transfer market more exciting than ever.

A series of soccer teams aggressively welcomed the stars during this period. Among them are the giants such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Barcelona, ​​PSG or Juventus.

As usual, the name Manchester United has always been the destination of all transfer news. However, during this time, the Reds are in need of keeping quality factors rather than buying more. After the Ighalo firefighting contract was sublime, the Red Devils as well as the fans wanted the team to buy him from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua. The idea of ​​this deal will easily take place recently, Chinese sources said that the management team of Ighalo is intent on making its star price.

Specifically, Shanghai Greenland Shenhua has offered Ighalo up to 17 million euros. The figure is three times higher than the cost the club spent to get Ighalo in early 2019. Prior to this move, the United side is intending to suspend the deal. They will consider more next time the football activities come back and see if Ighalo really worth the price above or not.

In another development, Chelsea desperately wants Dean Henderson. The Red Devils’ keeper has a booming season on loan at Sheffield Utd. That’s why the Blues are desperate to bring him to Stamford Bridge to replace Kepa, who is unstable. Chelsea even want to pay the Reds up to £ 50 million for the remaining 2 years of Henderson’s contract. However, the United side proved to be very tough. Coach Ole Solskjaer also wants to use Henderson in the future to replace David De Gea. He said he would not let the young goalkeeper leave at any cost.

Last summer, Barcelona spent 100 million euros to bring Antoine Griezmann to the Nou Camp. However, after two-thirds of the season, what the French striker has shown is not convincing enough. The Catalans still rely on Messi’s talent to compete for the throne rather than Griezmann’s dripping goals. Even many sources believe that the BLD team is trying to sell him to re-invest in more potential deals.

How did Messi debut Barca B 16 years ago?

16 years ago, Lionel Messi launched the Barca B team with an impressive performance to help the home team win the Catalan derby.

Messi officially launched the Barca B team in the Catalan derby against Espanyol on March 6, 2004. At that time, the 16-year-old Argentine boy surprised everyone with his quick steps, handling technical balls and especially tactical thinking superior to his peers.

In this match, Messi constantly created situations of dribbling and speed techniques, stirring the opponent’s defense to bring the opportunity to score for the home team. In particular, the Argentine player directly participated in both goals of Barca B, contributing 1 goal and 1 assist.

This impressive performance and other imprints in Barca B helped Messi quickly make his debut for the Barca team just a few months later, particularly in October 2005. Coincidentally, the opponent was still Espanyol.

This achievement helped Messi become the youngest player to debut on the first team of Barca at the age of 17, 3 months and 22 days. In May 2005, the Argentine striker scored his first goal for a first-team Barca, opening the journey to becoming a legendary striker with a total of 627 goals after 718 official matches.

Messi started his football career at the age of 7 when he joined the youth team of Newell’s Old Boys. After 6 years at home, the Argentine boy went to Barcelona to develop his career. Since then, Messi has in turn surpassed Barca’s youth levels: Infantil A, Cadete B, Cadete A, Juvenil A, Barca C and Barca B.

However, when he was still a member of the Juvenil A team in November 2003, Messi was introduced to the first team Barca in a friendly against coach Jose Mourinho’s Porto. He has an impressive performance that will cause many experts to become the world’s top star in the future. Now, the prediction has come true.

Real Madrid compete with Barca to get Lautaro Martinez

The Spanish media revealed that Real Madrid jumped into the race to recruit the Argentinian striker, the leading target of rival Barca.

SPORT newspaper reported that in February Real Madrid tried to contact and persuade Martinez to sign a contract. However, the Argentine striker was not interested in the Bernabeu’s proposal when the talks between him and Barcelona were going well.

Therefore, Real Madrid will only be able to return to the Martinez deal in the summer of 2020. The 22-year-old’s contract release fee is up to 111 million euros.

The reason

The reason why Real Madrid constantly pursued Martinez is because rookie Luka Jovic did not meet expectations and Karim Benzema started showing signs of age. However, their plan is facing many difficulties because of competing with Barca.

Martinez prioritizes joining Barca more than any other club. He also informed BLD Inter Milan that he only wanted to move to the Camp Nou team. In addition, he expressed his desire to play with superstar Lionel Messi, Argentina team-mate.

How good is Martinez?

In the 2019/20 season, Martinez scored 16 goals and 4 assists for Inter after 31 appearances in all competitions. In Serie A alone, he scored 11 goals in 22 matches.

Martinez is praised by professionals for speed and finishing. Barca has long admired the talent of the Argentinian striker and sees him as a permanent replacement for Luis Suarez. However, to make this deal, Barca is considering plans to exchange Arturo Vidal or Ivan Rakitic with Inter to reduce the transfer cost of Martinez.

Barca can even sell 5 players Nelson Semedo, Arthur, Arturo Vidal, Carles Alena and Jean-Clair Todibo to have money to recruit Martinez. In the summer of 2019, Barca used to be very close to the Argentinian’s signature. However, they withdrew at the last minute when Inter asked for 80 million euros.
