It has been claimed that Manchester United is making preparations to bring David de Gea back to the club on a temporary basis. This comes as Andre Onana, who took his place, is now participating in the Africa Cup of Nations. At this point, De Gea has not yet signed with a new club since he was released in the summer. Real Sociedad defender Robin Le Normand has recently come to the attention of Manchester United and Liverpool, both of which are interested in acquiring his services.
There is still a lack of clarity over Bayern Munich’s interest in Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha, who was previously close to making a summer transfer. It is predicted that Jose Mourinho will leave Roma in the summer and return to the Premier League. In the meanwhile, forward Tammy Abraham may be involved in a trade with Romelu Lukaku, who is now playing for Chelsea.
Given Barcelona’s current financial situation, Chelsea is considering making a substantial offer of €100 million (£87 million) for Gavi, who is now playing for Barcelona. Julian Alvarez, a striker for Manchester City, is valued at a minimum of £80 million, which discourages Barcelona and Real Madrid from seeking to acquire his services. It is also worth noting that Barcelona and Real Madrid are showing interest in Gabriel Jesus, who plays for Arsenal.
Real Madrid is investigating the potential of capitalizing on Manchester United’s interest in Takefusa Kubo by activating his release clause, which is worth €60 million (£52 million), and then selling him to the Red Devils for €70 million (£61 million). There is a possibility that the monies obtained will be used to make a transfer for Fabian Ruiz, a midfielder for Paris Saint-Germain who is now on the radar of manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Taking into consideration the possibility of the Dutchman leaving Stamford Bridge in January, Liverpool is getting ready to compete with Manchester City for the acquisition of Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen through a prospective transfer. When it comes to the chase of Juventus winger Federico Chiesa, Tottenham Hotspur is aiming to avoid interference from Newcastle United in their pursuit of the player. Juventus, which is struggling financially, is considering selling the star player who is valued at sixty million pounds.
