Why Bayern would be the perfect club for Thuram

Al-Hilal dreams of Messi

Saudi Arabia is in the midst of delusions of grandeur. While Al-Nassr have offered a golden bridge to Cristiano Ronaldo, Mundo Deportivo understand that rival club Al-Hilal will try to snatch Lionel Messi. For this, the Saudi club would be ready to offer … 300 million euros per year to the Argentinian, whose contract binding him to PSG expires next June.

  • Our opinion : Unlike Ronaldo, Messi has, sportingly, no reason to leave Europe.

Wolverhampton have made an offer for Sarabia…

Pablo Sarabia could leave Paris Saint-Germain again. Definitely this time. According to Relevo, Wolverhampton have made an offer for the Spanish midfielder. But this would be considered insufficient by the club of the capital. The former FC Sevilla would be very appreciated by Julen Lopetegui.

  • Our opinion : Given its sporting performance, Paris would perhaps do better not to be too greedy.

…and struck a deal for Lemina

The Wolves are – as often – particularly active in this transfer window. According to L’Equipe, the Premier League club have reached an agreement with Nice for the transfer of Mario Lemina. Amount of the operation: 10 million euros.

Longoria still wants an attacking player

Nagelsmann pushes for goalkeeper

For Julian Nagelsmann, Bayern absolutely must recruit a goalkeeper this winter. After Manuel Neuer’s long-term package, who broke his leg while skiing, the German technician cannot imagine ending the season with Sven Ulreich as the only alternative in the cage. “We have an obligation to sign another goalkeeper“, he insisted.

Imbula in… Turkish second division

Giannelli Imbula continues to travel. The 30-year-old OM player signed up for Turkish club Tuzlaspor in the second division. He hadn’t played since July.

  • Our opinion : Surprising trajectory and far from what one could imagine for him.
