JT Foot Mercato: Atlético de Madrid on all fronts
While Gérard Lopez must finalize the acquisition of the Girondins de Bordeaux in the coming days, the club is already considering the replacement of their coach Jean-Louis Gasset. Lucien Favre, David Guion and Vladimir Petković are among the tracks mentioned according to L’Equipe.
At PSG, Georginio Wijnaldum will wear the number 18. A number that belonged to Moïse Kean last year, the Italian having returned to Everton following his loan.
With Leon Goretzka’s contract ending next summer, Real Madrid have already contacted the midfielder’s entourage to sign him free according to Bild. A mutual interest since the German had already shown his desire to wear the white jersey in the past.
If Barça is pushing to get rid of Antoine Griezmann, the Frenchman does not intend to give any gift to the Catalan club. The native of Mâcon will claim the payment of the salary difference with his possible future club, as indicated by the Spanish media AS.
To continue its XXL transfer window, PSG dreams of affording the services of Paul Pogba. Which leaves Manchester United in a delicate situation: let the French go, or extend him to one year from the end of his lease. The Parisian club having approached the demands of the Pogba clan, PSG will have to sell to have the necessary liquidity to conclude the arrival of the former Le Havre.
Defending La Liga champion, Atlético de Madrid has been at the heart of the transfer window in recent days. For several weeks, the French Antoine Griezmann has been mentioned for a return to the Colchoneros in exchange for Saúl Ñíguez. A return that the president of the Madrid club has not excluded at all. But for his part, Saúl Ñíguez will not be selected in the event of a satisfactory offer, coming from Liverpool in particular who could try his luck by offering nearly 40 M €. João Félix, meanwhile, will remain Madrid this summer because Atlético relies on his Portuguese striker. It is also in attack that Diego Simeone wants to strengthen his workforce with Argentina’s Lautaro Martínez. Inter are claiming € 60m, which would be quite a blow in the perspective of a new championship in the league this season.
Demarai Gray officially joins Everton after his stint at Bayer Leverkusen. The England winger is linked with the club until 2024, with an option for an additional year.
The former Marseillais André Ayew will engage with Al Sadd in Qatar. Free since the end of his contract with Swansea, Ayew will therefore be coached by Xavi, who recently extended his contract until 2023.
✍️ | Demarai Gray has joined from Bayer Leverkusen for an undisclosed fee after agreeing a three-year contract until the end of June 2024 with the option for a fourth year. @ 22demarai 🔵
