TRANSFER UPDATE: LUKAKU LEAVING? HAALAND, MBAPPE AND RUDIGER TO REAL? AND MANY MORE.
This January is all about opportunities to arrive for players to be sold or move clubs.
We will see a lot of attacking style of players being involved with transfers due to the big European giants missing their attacking force.
Lukaku came out to SkySports saying his time at Chelsea is NOT what he expected suggesting he misses Inter Milan and his old team mate Lautaro Martinez.
He wants a move away from the club and meetings are being prepared on Monday with the board and Tuchel looking for routes to fix the situation. He wont leave this January unless a major bid is placed from a team he wants to go to and suits.
If Tottenham can't find a deal for Vlahovic they will look forward with Conte interested in the Belgian striker.
Mbappe is gonna have a wild winter and summer window.
He admires Real Madrid and has from a young age.
Real Madrid have approached him many times with his agent claiming “positive talks” have happened. A contract has been offered to him by Real Madrid which suits his needs but he is showing his respect to PSG by NOT accepting it unless there is NO agreement between clubs in January.
Most Likely he will join his dream team in Real Madrid. ⚪️
Haaland and his agent have had the agreement that they want to look for a bigger European club with Real Madrid, Barcelona and both Manchester clubs interested.
He was spotted today in Malaga and said to a fan “I will be here in Spain“.
More to follow these coming days but most likely if a deal was completed it will be done in the summer.
Rudiger will be a free agent in the upcoming summer window with Real Madrid very interested. Negotiations have started between his representatives and Madrid with an agreement nearly completed.
Chelsea have offered him a contract with a upgraded wage but it is NOT to Rudiger standards and his representative.
