Transfer Market The latest news and rumours
11:25. Bayern Munich may allow David Alaba to depart this summer, according to The Daily Telegraph, as his contract comes to a close on June 30, 2021. This has put a number of Premier League clubs on alert, including Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United. Paris Saint-Germain are also considering a move for Alaba.
10:45. Achraf Hakimi has been phenomenal at Borussia Dortmund this season, in the second year of a two-year loan from Real Madrid, and the German side would like to keep the Moroccan right-back on loan for another season, yet Inter have joined Bayern Munich in wanting to sign Achraf on a permanent basis.
10:11. Chelsea are looking to rebuild their team this summer, but in order to do so they must allow some players to depart. The Times report that one of the players who has been put up for sale is N’Golo Kante, as they believe the Frenchman would generate the necessary funds to finance other deals.
9:34. Kai Havertz, who has attracted interest from the likes of Real Madrid, will only leave Bayer Leverkusen if he will be a starter at the team he joins, say The Sun. Meanwhile, Sky Sports claim that Chelsea are also keen on signing the 21-year-old, who would cost around 100 million euros.
9:05. Maurizio Sarri is in serious danger of being sacked, according to Calciomercato, after Juventus’ Coppa Italia defeat to Napoli. This comes after having lost the Supercoppa Italiana to Lazio last December, too. The Bianconeri will allow Sarri to see out this season, but former coach Maximiliano Allegri is one of the favourites to take charge.
8:30. Paris Saint-Germain want to sign a centre-back to replace Thiago Silva and have identified Bayern Munich’s Lucas Hernandez, who Todofichajes claim the French side are willing to offer 50 million euros for. The French defender has struggled with injuries since joining Bayern for 80m euros last summer and has thus not been a first-team regular.
8:20. Barcelona’s attempts to sign Inter forward Lautaro Martinez are getting more difficult by the day, as La Gazzetta dello Sport report that the Nerazzurri are demanding the Argentine’s 111 million euro release clause. This clause reportedly comes to an end on July 7, too; after that, Inter are free to set Lautaro’s price tag.
8:00. Alphonse Areola will remain at Real Madrid until the end of this season’s Champions League, after Los Blancos reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain to extend the goalkeeper’s loan deal. Read more here.
