Clubs are slowly turning their eyes to the summer window, and Transfer Talk has updates on all the latest rumors.
Gomes calls for Barça’s exit
After two years of struggle to keep a regular place in the Barcelona midfield, Andre Gomes asked the club to sell him this summer, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The 24-year-old has Premier League contenders, with several English media reporting the ex-Valencia man of interest to Manchester United, and AC Milan are also reportedly considering bringing Gomes to Italy.
The Catalan post says the Portugal international is just the biggest name among a handful of players who could leave Camp Nou this summer.
Rear wing Aleix vidal should be sold, center-back recently arrived Yerry Mina is a candidate for a loan, and the club would be willing to part ways with the two Denis suarez and Paco Alcácer, although neither should leave; Denis is determined to earn his place with the Blaugrana, while Alcacer is also not interested in leaving – and also lacks suitors at the moment.
Liverpool join race for Donnarumma
Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have long led the race for the potential signing of the AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer, but don’t erase an accusation of being late from Liverpool, Calciomercato cites Tuttosport as a report.
The 19-year-old Italy international was at the center of a one-summer contract saga last year, and as he signed a new deal before the transfer window closed, it was said throughout long this campaign to leave San Siro at the end of the season.
Madrid should finally pull the trigger to replace Keylor Navas, while no Alphonse Areole or Kevin Trapp put the spotlight on to sufficiently secure PSG’s No. 1 jersey.
The goalkeeper has been a problematic position throughout Jurgen Klopp’s tenure on Merseyside as the blunders of Simon Mignolet and Loris karius have continuously undermined Liverpool’s progress.
