The focus of the day
The home stretch of the summer transfer window is likely to be agitated among the attackers. A musical chair game could fall into place if Kylian Mbappé had just left Paris Saint-Germain for Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo would thus be forced to see his desire to return to the White House come to an end, even if the leaders of Madrid would obviously not have wished to try the coup according to Marca. In today’s edition, the Corriere dello Sport explains that his agent Jorge Mendes would be in England to offer his services to Manchester City. Information that contradicts Tuttosport who announces that he would go to PSG, but in 2022. As a free agent therefore. The exchange with Mauro icardi would still be relevant.
In England, the case Harry kane is still so much debate. For now the Spurs are resisting, but Manchester City could soon come back with a monstrous € 140m offer with various additional bonuses. In the event of the departure of the English striker, the Barça striker Martin braithwaite would be tracked. Which could unlock the potential exchange between Arsenal and the Catalan club for Pierre-Eymeric Aubameyang. A real musical chair game!
