Following a season well marked by inumerous sporting failures, Barcelona intends to attack the reformulation of their squad to 2020/21 and Bernardo Silva’s name, from Manchester City, seems to be one of the main targets of the catalan club, in a transaction where another portuguese player could play a part.
FROM ETIHAD TO CAMP NOU WITHOUT BEING BORN 10 TIMES?
I could not resist to remember the way Jorge Jesus has referred to Bernardo Silva by the time of his first passage at Benfica, but it’s evident that the athlete raised in Seixal has evolved tremendously in the last few years, being already pointed by many as the main portuguese player today.
The portuguese international has already earned for several times, huge compliments from Pep Guardiola in public, but the truth is that during this season that is almost at the end, Bernardo Silva hasn’t always been an indiscutible piece on the starting eleven of Manchester City.
On the last few days, Telegraph newspaper noticed an alleged interest from Barcelona on his signing, already idealizing a plan to seduce the player aswel as trying to convince Manchester City to let go of his pass.
The plan is to offer Bernardo Silva a leading role in the “culés” scheme for next season, just below the role that “king Messi” performs.
To convince the “citizens”, Barcelona is planning to include the pass of full back Nélson Semedo in the negotiations in order to soften the payable ammount for Bernardo.
REAL MADRID WILLING TO GET CRAZY FOR DYBALA
In times there are being marked by the global financial crisis provoked by the pandemic of the new coronavirus, Real Madrid seems to be willing to open his wallet in order to ensure the signing of Paulo Dybala, prominent figure in the Juventus squad.
According to Sport MediaSet, the “merengue” club seems to have already made an offer to the italian champion of about 100 million euros to assure the signing of the argentine international.
As this ammount was not already impressive enough (specially reminding the actual state of worldwide economy in all areas), Real Madrid are also willing to include the names of the spaniard Isco or the german Toni Kroos in the negotiations, players that may seduce Andrea Pirlo, the new manager of Juventus.
Negotiations may not come easy, even because the “vecchia signora” looks at Dybala in a similar way as the way they intend to manage the situation around Cristiano Ronaldo, who is being related to a possible exit, with PSG as the most spoken destination.
Both players are seen as fundamental for Pirlo’s short term success in Turim but their will should always be the determinant factor for their permanence at the club or their exit.
IN GERMANY THEY ASSURE HAVERTZ IS ON HIS WAY TO CHELSEA
According to revealed informations by the journalist Nicoló Schiro, specialist in transfer market matters, the match that costed Bayer Leverkusen’s elimination at Inter’s feet, in the quarter finals of the Europa League, could have been the last one from Kai Havertz wearing the pharmaceutical club colours.
In the next few days a Chelsea proposal should arrive at Leverkusen in the ammount of…80 million euros.
Waiting for him, the german international will have a contract valid for the next five seasons, with a eight million euros annual wage.
After a year without being able to enroll players, Chelsea has been very active in the market and vows to give Frank Lampard a squad full of quality to meddle in the run for the top spots of the Premier League table aswell as achieve a good campaign in the next season’s Champions League.
Yet to confirm, Havertz will be a big name joining a team who already ensured two signings of unquestionable quality: Timo Werner (ex-Leipzig) and Hakim Ziyech (ex-Ajax).
IMMOBILE DECLARES HIS LOVE TO LAZIO
Winner of the 2020 Golden Boot and top goalscorer of the last edition of the Serie A, Ciro Immobile has been linked in the last few months to teams like Manchester United, Everton or Newcastle, but the italian striker insisted that he wants to finish his carreer serving Lazio.
“My goal is to stay at Lazio forever. The contract renewal will be for three years, so the contract expires in 2025 when i’ll be 35 years old“, announced Immobile in statements given to Corriero dello Sport.
When asked about the possibility of heading to Napoli, the club from his hometown, the striker was clear about it: “It’s the town where i was born, i always followed Napoli with affection. But what Lazio gave me has no price“.
