Axel Witsel, quoted with insistence on the side of Marseille, would be popular at Atlético Madrid, according to the Last Hour. The Spanish club could try to interfere in the race to sign the Belgian midfielder, free of any contract.

Credibility index: 3/5, likely. Interest from Atlético wouldn’t be surprising, but it’s confirmed that Marseille have taken the lead, securing favor with the player and his family. Difficult, therefore, to make him change his mind.

Sky Italia claims that Napoli throws in the towel in the file of Dries Mertens. The Red Devil should not receive a new offer from the Neapolitan management. Marseille and Lazio would have positioned themselves, but Mertens claims 9 million euros per year.


The Brazilian international defender of FC Barcelona Dani Alvesannounced on Wednesday his departure from FC Barcelona, ​​which he had found in January after a break of five years, and where he played a total of 408 games. « Today it’s time to say goodbye », wrote the right side on Instagram, referring to these « more than 8 years dedicated to this club, to these colors, to this house… ». « But like everything in life, the years go by, the paths separate ».

Jules Kounde is very close to committing to FC Barcelona. Esport 3 say the talks are positive. He is expected to cost €55-60m, while Dest could be included in the sale.

Yves Bissouma should join Tottenham. The Brighton player should, according to the British press, pass his medical examination quickly. An agreement would have been reached with Brighton.

On the PSG side, we are advancing on Milan Skriniar. The Parisian club has, according to La Repubblica, advanced on the operation, which could be concluded for 70 million euros, bonus included. This is the priority recruit at PSG.

Credibility index: 4/5, very likely. Skriniar has been targeted for many weeks by PSG, which has finally submitted a concrete offer. Difficult to imagine anything other than a favorable outcome for Parisians in this case.

Gareth Bale remains a hope for Tottenham. According to the Sun, the club are continuing to push to try to convince the Welshman, free from any contract, to join the club this summer. The Welshman had already turned down an offer from Getafe.

Manchester City wants to go for Marc Cuccurella. A first offer should quickly be made for the Brighton player, being the number one target of the Mancunians, who have already offered Erling Haaland.

Barça wants to recruit Cesar Azpilicueta this summer to replace Dani Alves. According to Fabrizio Romano, a two-year contract has already been offered to the Spaniard, whom Chelsea are trying to convince to stay.

Juventus announced on Thursday that they have extended the contract of Mattia De Sciglio until 2025. The 29-year-old side has been playing for the Italian club since 2017, having left AC Milan to join the Old Lady. Loaned to Olympique Lyonnais during the 2020-2021 financial year, he played 29 matches (1 goal, 3 assists) last season for the Turinese, fourth in the defunct Serie A and therefore qualified for the next group stage of the Champions League.

Gabriel Jesus has become Arsenal’s top priority, according to the Times. The Brazilian, who is entering his final year of contract at Manchester City, could leave for around 60 million euros.

Romeo Lavia could be loaned out next season. The 18-year-old Belgian is seen as a big hope for Manchester City, who are hoping they won’t have to sell him despite his low playing time. But according to The Athletic, Leeds are pushing for him and could put pressure on him on the sale of Kalvil Phillips, which interests the Skyblues.

Credibility index: 2/5, unlikely. Manchester City have already taken a clear stance on Lavia, deeming him close to the level required to get playing time at City. To see him leave, even more definitively, is totally excluded.


Anderlecht could quickly find their first incoming transfer. According to The Last Hour, negotiations are underway between the Brussels club and Abdulrazak Ishaq, which they already wanted to host last winter. The right midfielder plays in Norrköping, Sweden. The Mauves would offer 4.2 million euros.

Zulte Waregem formalized the arrival of the Spanish defender on Wednesday Borja Lopez. The 28-year-old arrives from Gijon in the Spanish second division. Trained in Gijon, Lopez notably passed through Monaco in France. After loans to Rayo Vallecano, La Coruña and Arouca in Portugal, he returned to Spain in FC Barcelona’s B team. In 2019 he returned to Gijon after two seasons at Hadjuk Split in Croatia. Last season, he played 21 games for Gijon in all competitions.

Kylian Hazard signed up with RWDM where he signed a contract until 2024 with an option for an additional season, the Brussels 1B Pro League club announced on Thursday.
