RED AND WHITE>RED AND BLUE

Atletico Madrid have confirmed the signing of former striker Antoine Griezmann on a one-year loan deal with an option to but from FC Barcelona. Griezmann’s move comes as a shock to Barcelona fans who were expecting him to become their star man after Lionel Messi’s departure.

 

 

Since moving to Barcelona in 2019, Griezmann has had a tough time, struggling for goals and being played out of position for Barcelona. He will be hoping he can re-find the form he had in his first spell at Atleti as they look to defend their La Liga title.

 

CHELSEA BREAKING BAD

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan deal. The European champions have been courting a midfield option for a few weeks now and have finally got their man in the Spaniard.

 

 

Saul was also linked with Manchester United after expressing his desire to leave Atletico Madrid having fallen down the pecking order. The Spanish international brings a wide range of skill-set with him and his move may just make Chelsea the odds-on favourites for the Premier League.

PSG’S SPREE CONTINUES

Paris Saint-Germain have had one of the best ever transfer windows given the quality and quantity of players they have got for what are mostly cut-price deals. The latest addition to the Parisian armoury is the signing of Portuguese left-back Nuno Mendes on loan with an option to buy.

 

 

Mendes was an integral part of Sporting Lisbon’s domestic success last season, and was on Manchester City’s radar as well. PSG however managed to snag his signature and add him to what is easily the best squad in Europe on paper. Will Mauricio Pochettino be able to make it work on the field

 

ANOTHER HOMECOMING

Antoine Greizmann is on the verge of rejoining former club Atletico Madrid from Barcelona with an initial loan and an obligation to buy.

 

 

In other news, Barcelona are working on a deal to sign Sevilla striker Lukk de Jong.

 

 

HOPING FOR A MIRACLE HERE

Real Madrid are hell bent on getting their main target for this summer window, although, PSG are equally adamant that Mbappe won’t be leaving them.

Real Madrid’s latest bid was a whopping 220m euros.

 

 

BETTER CALL SAUL

Chelsea have sealed the signing of Saul Niguez on a season long loan, with an option to buy.

 

 

CAMAVINGA OFFICIALLY JOINS REAL MADRID

French sensation Eduardo Camavinga has been officially announced by Real Madrid for 40m euros including add ons.

 

 

NUNO MENDES JOINS PSG ON LOAN

Sporting CP want 40 million for the prodigious left back. Manchester City will not pay his asking price to bring in him for some full back depth.

 

But PSG for whom the full back position has been a problem position for them over the last two seasons and despite signing Hakimi did  want some extra cover on the opposite flank in defence.

 

ILAIX MORIBA TO RB LEIPZIG

Barcelona academy product Ilaix Moriba has officially joined German club RB Leipzig.

 

 

CHELSEA UPDATES – SAUL AND ANJORIN

Tino Anjorin will leave Chelsea on loan for the season and join Lokomotiv Moscow with an option to buy for 17m pounds.

 

 

Meanwhile, Saul looks shockingly close to joining the London giants on loan with an option to buy after talks had hit a bump.

 

 

LEEDS FINALLY GET JAMES

Leeds finally get Dan James! The winger was stolen from right under the Yorkshire club’s nose by Manchester United in the 2019 summer window. Marcelo Bielsa has been a massive fan of the Welsh winger.

Leeds finally have signed some much needed attacking depth and will be used as a rotation option with Raphinha, Bamford and Harrison.

 

MILAN COMPLETE DOUBLE SIGNING

AC Milan have signed two prodigious young talents in Yacine Adli and Chaka Traore from Bordeux and Parma respectively.

Adli has been sent back to the Ligue 1 outfit on loan, where as Traore who is still just 16 years old can provide depth in wide areas.

 

TOMIYASU HEADED TO ARSENAL

After constantly being linked to Tottenham during the transfer window the versatile Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu is headed to Arsenal as he is being seen as the perfect replacement for the departing Bellerin.

CAMAVINGA ALL BUT CONFIRMED BY MADRID

Camavinga will be confirmed as Madrid player before the window shuts according to reports. Ancelotti wants the prodigious mid-fielder to join the Los Blancos ranks immediately as he will provide the much needed depth in the center of the park.

NDOMBELE GOING NOWHERE

The wantaway French midfielder, Tanguy Ndombele will not be leaving Spurs this window as Tottenham have not received any bids that match their asking price, reportedly around 60 million Euros. Ndombele has garnered interest in this window after falling out of the manager’s plans but a move has failed to materialize.

 

MOTHER OF ALL HOMECOMINGS

Run. It. Back. Manchester United have posted the video below to welcome the Old Trafford icon back to Manchester. Ronaldo spent a fruitful 7 years in Manchester, rising to become one of the world’s greatest footballers.

 

MAN UNITED CONFIRM RONALDO SIGNING

Manchester United have confirmed the arrival of the much-anticipated signing, Cristiano Ronaldo, from Juventus. The five-time Ballon d’or winner signs a 2-year contract with an option for another year. Ronaldo is expected to make his debut for the club on Sept 11, against Newcastle.

 

JORDAN HENDERSON EXTENDS CONTRACT

Liverpool, who have had a quiet window, have announced that captain Jordan Henderson has signed a new “long-term” contract to extend his stay at the Merseyside club. Liverpool has signed just Ibrahima Konate from Leipzig, focusing instead on tying up contracts on current squad members, like Alexander-Arnold.

 

HAMMERS JOIN THE PARTY

West Ham United have announced the signing of Croatian midfielder Nikola Vlasic from CSKA Moscow for an undisclosed fee. The 23-year old joins one of the most exciting squads in the Premier League, with the Hammers in the Europa League this season as well.

 

 

Vlasic’s deal however most likely ends the Hammers’ pursuit of Jesse Lingard, who played such a big role in getting the club European football last season. This will be Vlasic’s second stint in the Premier League having previously spent a season in England with Everton.

 

BIG BOOTS TO FILL

Juventus have announced the return of Moise Kean to the club as they scramble to bring in attacking talent to replace the goals of Cristiano Ronaldo. Still just 21, this is Kean’s fifth move in five years.

 

 

The young Italian was a part of Juventus’ senior set-up for three years from 2016 to 2019, including a season out on loan at Verona. Kean’s career has not hit the heights that were expected of him but this move could be the return to comfort that he needs to start firing again.

 

ATALANTA SIGN KOOPMEINERS

Atalanta have made a reputation for being amongst the smartest operators in the transfer market and the Italian side have once again proved it with the signing of Teun Koopmeiners. Signed from AZ Alkmaar, Koopmeiners has long been identified as amongst the brightest talents in Dutch football.

 

 

Atalanta look all set to challenge the big Serie A giants of Milan, Turin and Rome and the signing of Koopmeiners is a testament to their ambition. Most clubs in the Italian league are going through a rebuild phase and Atalanta may just be poised to make a run for the title.

 

WILLIAN AND ARSENAL PART WAYS

It is safe to say that since his move from West to North London, Willian has not had a good time. The Brazilian winger has been constantly derided for Arsenal fans for his performance but he does seem to be doing the Gunners a huge favour by terminating his contract with the club by mutual agreement.

 

 

The Brazilian winger will go back to his home country and join Corinithians, despite having two years left on his contract at the Emirates. Willian’s decision will reportedly save Arsenal upto 20 million GBP in wages, a class gesture from a player who has perhaps not got the respect he deserves.

Dan James is heavily being linked to Leeds United. His unimpressive stint at the Red Devils is about to end. Leeds who had James stolen from them at the last minute in the 2019/20  summer transfer window by United has apparently still been on Bielsa’s shortlist.

 

 

 

If anyone can improve Dan James it is Bielsa who has improved players like Michy Batshuayi and  Ander Herra in his long career.

 

LOOKMAN ON HIS WAY TO LEICESTER?

Ademola Lookman is being chased by Leicester as their search for a goal scoring winger continues. Lookman who impressed for Fulham last season on loan despite the Cottagers relegation, will be another savvy piece of business by the Foxes in this trasnfer market.
