The unlikely Ronaldo rumor at Barça
Cristiano Ronaldo at FC Barcelona? The idea has something to smile about. However, it is mentioned very seriously by our Catalan colleagues from SPORT. The English press has already reported a certain impatience with the five-time Golden Ball. The Spanish newspaper goes in the same direction, assuring that « CR7 » is not really reassured by the methods of its new trainer, Ralf Rangnick. Thus, his agent, Jorge Mendes, could take advantage of his good relationship with Joan Laporta to try to place him at the Blaugrana. « Jorge Mendes’ excellent relationship with Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany and Xavi Hernandez’s need to add goals mean it wouldn’t be so strange to see Cristiano Ronaldo’s name linked with Barcelona», We assure. A little bit anyway … Spearhead of Real Madrid for nine long seasons, including four coronations in the Champions League at stake, Cristiano Ronaldo, 36, is under contract until 2023 at Manchester United, where he is returned last summer after three years at Juve. the Sun reported Sunday that the Portuguese superstar « does not rule anything » about his future. Really nothing?

Barça: Umtiti extends … to play Torres
Surprise in Barcelona. Not spared by the physical glitches since the coronation of the Blues at the 2018 World Cup, Samuel Umtiti has long since lost his starting place at Barça. So that a short-term departure, before the end of a contract that ran until 2023, seemed certain. An unwanted. Except that the Catalan club announces this Monday the extension until 2026 of the former Lyonnais! A sleight of hand that should allow Barça to qualify its latest recruit, the Spanish international winger Ferran Torres. In fact, Umtiti consented to a « pay cut for the year and a half he was going to receive under his previous contract. With this operation, the Club is extending the player’s contract and must not increase his salary. FC Barcelona would like to publicly thank Samuel Umtiti for the effort and affection he has shown towards the Club. Club blaugrana thus increases its financial ‘fair play’ and will be able to register Ferran Torres in the Spanish Professional Football League.“, We explain in a press release. It remains to be seen whether his situation at Barça, in terms of playing time, is set to change, he who only played one game in 2021-22. A priori, it did not go for … Umtiti, 28, joined Camp Nou in 2016.

PSG in ambush for Lukaku?
What about the future of Romelu Lukaku in Chelsea? Recruited at a gold price (€ 115 million) last summer, the 28-year-old Belgian international striker has struggled to convince since the start of the season. Above all, he himself set fire to the powder by giving a punchy interview a few days ago, affirming his desire to return, one day, to Inter, and reporting a certain uneasiness at the Blues. All this would have put PSG on alert, according to the Catalan daily El Nacional. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi would be ready to put 90 M € on the table to attract the Red Devil in their nets. Paris is not Milan, but Lukaku would not be allergic to the idea. Last but not least, Roman Abramovich could open the door to his player in order to… get on the Erling Haaland file next summer. Under contract until 2026 at Stamford Bridge, Romelu Lukaku scored eight goals in 20 matches under the orders of Thomas Tuchel. After the improbable rumor Cristiano Ronaldo at Barça, there is a match to determine the most surprising “information” of the day in terms of the transfer window.
