Cristiano Ronaldo, Fofana, Mertens, Aubameyang, Ndombélé: The 15 transfer window info you missed on Friday

Cristiano Ronaldo, the sweet dream of… Corinthians

This is the saga of the summer. Although he said he wanted to leave Manchester United, “CR7” doesn’t have many options. And a surprising suitor just showed up. A guest on the Ulissecast podcast, Corinthians president Duilio Monteiro Alves let loose. “It’s true, I dream big. It’s the Corinthians! Willian and Renato Augusto are not there? In football, everything is possible and I have the obligation to do my best for Corinthians. Is possible ? I do not know. We didn’t try, we didn’t investigate, there was no such possibility, but we are keeping an eye on him. Imagine he suddenly wants to play in Brazil…”

  • Our opinion : Monteiro Alves is in a dream… It seems very, very unlikely to see the fifth Ballon d’Or land in Brazil this summer.


And it starts again: the contracts of the new Barça additions not approved


Chelsea insist on Fofana

Cucurella formalized, Boehly and Chelsea are not done with their recruitment. Although they have already suffered several rejections from Leicester, the Blues would not let go of Wesley Fofana’s case. This Friday, the time announce that the Londoners have revised their offer upwards with a proposal of more than 82 million euros for the former Stéphanois. In a press conference, Brendan Rodgers reiterated that the defender “it was not for sale“, just like James Maddison.

  • Our opinion : The blues insist and were able to see their efforts rewarded. It’s hard to believe that Leicester are still repelling the XXL assaults of the 2021 European champions.

Napoli think well of Navas

In their search for a goalkeeper, Napoli have reportedly made Kepa Arrizabalaga their priority. Seconds The morning i Sky Sports, the Chelsea goalkeeper could land around a €3m loan without an option to buy, with 60-70% of his salary taken by Chelsea. If negotiations fail, the Italian club is targeting Keylor Navas. “PSG are willing to part ways with him, giving him a salary boost, until 2024, so for two years, which intrigues president De Laurentiis“, specifies the Neapolitan medium.

  • Our opinion : Navas is under contract until 2024 with Paris, precisely. A two-year loan is hard to imagine.

Paris, towards a perfect transfer window?

Yes, Real Madrid are thinking about Gouiri

The rumor is starting to gain strength in the Spanish capital. Revealed a few days ago, Real Madrid’s interest in Amine Gouiri seems confirmed. In the last few hours, sport announces that the Merengue would study the possibility of bringing the Nice striker to Madrid. The newspaper explains that the reigning European champions could lend the striker to Nice for one more season. Only problem, the White House would not be determined to pay the 40 million euros requested by the Gym.

  • Our opinion : It would be one of the big surprises of this end of the transfer window. And a good shot to gently prepare the succession of Benzema, with whom Gouiri has been compared since his youth at OL…

“With Tchouaméni, Real is winning its youth bet”

Everton at the bell of Onana

Amadou Onana preferred Liverpool to London. A year after his arrival in the North, the Belgian international Espoirs will leave Lille. This Friday, The team announce that the 20-year-old midfielder should soon land with the Toffees for €36 million (plus €4 in possible bonuses). The former Hamburg player was convinced by Frank Lampard’s speech and project next to Goodison Park.

  • Our opinion : Another sumptuous work from LOSC, which confirms its ability to achieve XXL earnings. Despite the arrival of Onana, Everton could continue with the return of Gueye.

Ndombélé invited to leave

Ndombélé saw his future at Tottenham darken a little more this Friday. In a press conference, Antonio Conte, the Spurs coach, explained that the former Gone would not have much playing time, especially if he wants to play in the World Cup in November. “The World Cup is coming up, and that’s why many players want to play regularly. (…) Having unhappy players is not good for us. I cannot guarantee regular game time for Tanguy Ndombele or Harry Winks here at Tottenham.”

  • Our opinion : More than the prospect of the World Cup, which still seems unrealistic, Ndombélé needs to find a stable project, where it can be projected in the long term. Because it’s not talent that old Amiens lacks.

Aubameyang should stay at Barça

As soon as said, done…forgotten. Although the rumor of a move from Chelsea has increased in the last few hours, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang seems to be on his way to stay at FC Barcelona. Seconds World Sports, which made the cover this Friday, the Gabonese striker will not leave the Blaugrana this summer. In addition, he would not have asked for his departure and did not fear competition from Robert Lewandowski.

  • Our opinion : It is difficult to imagine that Barça and Aubameyang part ways in the coming weeks. And Xavi made sure to count on the former Stéphanois, who could be associated with Robert Lewandowski.

Meunier’s alternative for FC Barcelona?

Not essential in Edin Terzic’s mind, Thomas Meunier (30) could leave BvB. According to information from sport, FC Barcelona would think of the former PSG defender to forget the failure César Azpilicueta, who finally returned to Chelsea. But the Catalans are not willing to spend too much money on this, reports the newspaper. A few weeks ago, the Belgian international confirmed to the Het Nieuwsblad having had contact with the Catalan club.

  • Our opinion : A track necessarily more affordable for Barça. But between Dest and Meunier, the “upgrade” isn’t necessarily as significant as one might think…

Plea returns to ‘Gladbach

This is not necessarily the outcome we envisioned in this case. Announced at the exit, Alassane Pléa (29) finally remains in Mönchengladbach. At the end of the contract in one year, the French international (1 cap), followed by Everton and his former club Nice, re-joined the Fohlens until 2025. The deal includes an option for one more year. This extension is accompanied by a salary increase for the native of Lille.

  • Our opinion : This should be good for Borussia Mönchengladbach, who need certainty before attacking the new season. Pléa has been part of Borussen since his arrival and will still be vital for next year.

Mertens to the madness of Istanbul

Free since leaving Naples, Dries Mertens (35) is very close to joining Galatasaray. Nicolo Schira announces an agreement between the Istanbul club and the Belgian striker. The terms of the contract remain to be defined. The latter could cover two dry seasons or one season, plus an optional one.

  • Our opinion : A marriage that can make sparks. We can’t wait to see how the thousands of Galatasaray fans will welcome the Belgian forward.

It gives me great pleasure. Maybe you want to see me somewhere else, I don’t know (laughs)! But today things are going very well, there have been recruits, we have a very complete team. I don’t see why I should just think about leaving or worry.”

  • Our opinion : Fofana should continue the adventure with the Artesians, barring a big change or XXL offer. But in the transfer market anything is possible…

World Sports. The 25-year-old Nigerian striker is coming off a great season in the Liga Adelante with Almeria, scoring 18 goals in 36 league games.

  • Our opinion : Sadiq is necessarily a less expensive track than all the ones already mentioned next to the Westfalen Stadion. More complete, the Nigerian stepped up last season and could stick with Terzic’s playing philosophy.

AS Saint-Etienne should recoup €5 million for the 27-year-old winger, who will have the famous “designated player” status, which allows MLS teams to exceed the salary cap imposed by the league.

  • Our opinion : It’s the end of a chapter with the Greens, who continue to unseat their old “heavyweights”. In California, Bouanga should flourish.

Diakité, a Pitchoun among Mastiffs

It was in the air for a few days, it is now official: Bafodé Diakité joins the LOSC. Formed in Téfécé, the 21-year-old defender leaves the Ciutat Rosa and signed for four with the Mastiffs, who paid between 2.5 and 3 million euros to secure his services.

Tedesco pressures Bayern for Laimer

Touted as FC Bayern’s next recruit, Konrad Laimer is still at Leipzig, due to a lack of a suitable offer.

Time is running out and at some point the club will not give away any players“said the Italian in a press conference.

  • Our opinion : The more time passes, the harder it seems to see how Bayern move. The Rekordmeister is well stocked in the middle and Nagelsmann seems to want to (re)trust Sabitzer in particular.
