Last Word on Football’s Transfer Rumours brings you the latest rumblings from the world of football. In today’s edition, there are some Juventus transfer rumours, Paris Saint-Germain are bringing in reinforcements and AC Milan have found their manager.
World Transfer Rumours
Juventus In For Everyone
Juventus have been linked with all kinds of players in the past couple of days. First earlier this week there were the rumours linking them to a move for James Rodriguez, according to Calciomercato. Juventus are also interested in bringing another Real Madrid playmaker to Turin.
Real Madrid are looking to sell Rodriguez this summer, but the sale of Isco, also reported by Calciomercato, will be a bit tricky. They want to keep the Spanish midfielder, assuming they are unable to sign either Paul Pogba or Christian Eriksen from the Premier League, but that’s not all Juventus wants.
Reports out of Italy are suggesting that Medhi Benatia could be making a return to Juventus. The Morracan left in January as he did not get along with Max Allegri, but now that Allegri has left, it has opened the door for Benatia to return to Juventus.
Paris Saint-Germain Transfers Rumours
Despite incredible Financial Fair Play scrutiny, it seems PSG are up to their old tricks again. First, the club confirmed the ex-sporting director Leonardo will be returning to PSG after spending two years with AC Milan. His return has sent the rumour mill into overdrive in Paris.
The club has made it clear they want to announce a blockbuster signing along with Leonardo next week. They are looking at Mattias De Ligt, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Gianluigi Donnarumma. It will not be easy, as they face stiff competition for each player. But they are serious about announcing one of these players soon.
Milan Coaching Carousel
After Simone Inzaghi resigned with Lazio and Antonio Conte was named manager of Inter Milan, AC Milan has finally found its man. Milan have decided to bring in Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo to replace the departed Gennaro Gattuso.
Milan had to wait until Sampdoria lined up Stefano Pioli to replace Giampaolo, but their waiting may be a major benefit. Giampaolo is keen on bringing one or possibly both Dennis Praet and Joachim Andersen with him to Milan, according to Calciomercato and The Sun respectively.
Both players have been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, with the North London club offering roughly €50 million for the pair, but the Gunners have been unable to complete the transfer and Milan are ready to step up in their place. Sampdoria are expecting a €25 million bid from Milan for just Praet alone.
