Wanted: Fabian Ruiz
Barcelona is ready to intensify its efforts to sign Fabian Ruiz.
The 23-year-old Napoli star has been on Barcelona’s radar for some time and the Catalan giants are ready to pull the trigger.
The Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo states that Barcelona will launch in January for the Spanish international, either in January or in the summer of 2020.
The central midfielder has a contract with Napoli until June 2023.
Pogba talks to Messi
Paul Pogba has spoken with Lionel Messi amid continued speculation about his future at Manchester United, according to his brother Mathias.
Real Madrid wanted the World Cup winner during the summer transfer window, but the midfielder stayed at Old Trafford.
Yesterday, Bernabeu legend Sergio Ramos sent transfer rumors when he told Pogba that the door is open at Real Madrid.
But the conversations with Messi could suggest that the stars of Barcelona are also expressing it.
“I know he has talked to some players, but not Sergio Ramos,” Mathias Pogba told El Chiringuito TV when asked about Ramos’ recent praise.
“Who? Oh, Lionel Messi. Sometimes not always. Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Antoine Griezmann, for the national team.”
January decision Neymar
The head of the PSG, Leonardo, wants to sell the transfer objective of Barcelona Neymar, according to reports.
Neymar wanted to leave the Princes Park to return to Camp Nou, just two years after his controversial departure from the giants of La Liga.
However, the European transfer deadline came and went, since Barcelona could not reach the valuation of £ 273 million of the PSG needed to negotiate an agreement.
And Tuttosport says that the head of the PSG, Leonardo, wants to get rid of Neymar when the transfer window reopens in the winter.
Neymar agreed to stay in the Titans of Ligue 1 until next summer.
But it is said that Leonardo is tired of the speculations surrounding Brazil’s international and would ideally unload the forward in January.
Klopp supports Phil
Jurgen Klopp has backed Philippe Coutinho to succeed at Bayern Munich after joining a full-season Barcelona loan.
Liverpool sold Coutinho in January 2018 for an initial amount of £ 105 million, which could amount to £ 142 million.
The measure did not work as planned for the Brazilian international or the Catalan giants, who were eager to remove it from the wage books during the summer transfer window.
“[He is a] world class player, very good transfer for Bayern and the Bundesliga,” Klopp told Bild. “I thought it was a good option for both of us when I first heard about it.
“It may sound strange, but we didn’t have enough money to catch it. We had already spent all the money we got for him. I already told him in person that he and Bayern will fit well.”
Diego Costa in Antoine Griezmann
Diego Costa never tried to convince Antoine Griezmann to reject Barcelona to stay at Atlético de Madrid.
Griezmann, 28, joined Barcelona in the summer for £ 108 million to bond with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
“His dream was to play alongside Messi and Luis Suarez,” Costa told the Que Partizado YouTube channel. “As a footballer you always want to try different things and it is normal that I would like to try my luck there and see if I could become an important player in Barça as it was in Atlético.”
“Griezmann wanted a new experience and he will find it in Barcelona. I did not try to convince him to stay, but if he had asked me for my opinion, I would have told him that everyone should try new things.”
Manchester United active in January
Manchester United will be active during the January transfer window.
According to the Manchester Evening News, who claim that Ed Woodward plans to recruit whenever the right players are available.
The Red Devils brought three players during the summer with Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James signed for a combined total of £ 148 million.
But with the outputs of Ander Herrera, Romelu Lukaku, Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling and Alexis Sanchez – United have money to spend.
