World Transfer Rumours
Joao Cancelo to Manchester City
Manchester City are prepared to sell Danilo in order to attract Joao Cancelo to the Etihad Stadium.
Goal reports that the two clubs have already agreed on the basis of the deal, with a figure of €50 million mentioned. It is understood that the Portugal right-back is keen to move to England; however, Juve are yet to formally agree on a deal.
Cancelo could become City’s first summer signing despite reports suggesting Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodri was on his way. City are still keen on the Spaniard; however, the 22-year-old has asked for time to consider his options.
Neymar Turns Down Real Madrid Transfer
Real’s President, Florentino Perez, and his assistant, Jose Angel Sanchez, have failed in attempts to convince Neymar to move to Madrid.
Neymar joined PSG in August 2017 for a world record fee of £200 million but has had an injury-stricken campaign this term.
Spurs Offered PSG Star as Christian Eriksen Replacement
Julian Draxler could move to Tottenham Hotspur as a potential replacement for Christian Eriksen.
According to The Star, PSG are hoping to take advantage by offloading Draxler. The German international is seen surplus to requirements in Paris and the French side hope to sell players to comply with FFP.
Eriksen publically stated his wish to “try something new”, with Inter Milan and Real Madrid fighting for his signature.
Draxler started 22 of PSG 32 league games last term, scoring three goals and grabbing eight assists.
