As soon as the 2021-2022 season is over, the transfer market begins to stir in all directions. From the transfer of Haaland to the extension of Mbappe through the negotiations around Tchouameni and the possible signing of Di Maria, the big names in Europe are already active on the market. Here’s our top 5 transfer news and rumours.
Jules Kounde increasingly close to Chelsea
The French defender of Fc Sevilla Jules Kounde for a few years agitates the transfer market. Long announced on the Real Madrid side, the 23-year-old could see his career continue on the Premier League side. Indeed, it is the London club Chelsea who would like to secure the services of the French international to replace Rüdiger who left for Real Madrid. He is currently in selection for the League of Nations. The amount of the transfer would be around 60 million euros. Further details of this transfer remain unknown.
Aurélien Tchouameni and Raphaël Léao tracked by Real Madrid
Despite the disappointment of the 2022 European champions following Mbappe’s extension to PSG, Real Madrid intends to strike a blow during this transfer window. Several names are regularly mentioned but two names often come up. Those of Frenchman Aurélien Tchouameni (Monaco) and Portuguese Raphaël Léao (AC Milan).
But the Tchouameni case seems more complicated than expected and for good reason, the growing interest of PSG and Liverpool for the young 22-year-old player. According to the latest rumours, AS Monaco have refused an offer of 80 million euros made by Real Madrid despite the player’s desire to join the Spanish capital. PSG for its part would have transmitted an offer of 100 million euros and would count on Mbappe to convince his compatriot to join him in the French capital.
After Real Madrid’s failure on the Kylian Mbappe case, the Spanish club wants to attract the Monegasque midfielder. The next few days we will build on the outcome of this transfer. Regarding the Raphaël Léao case, Real Madrid seems calm and without competition. The only problem remains AC Milan, which according to the latest information, is not ready to let go of its young Portuguese prodigy after his very good season. Italian champions this season, the Milanese are keen to strengthen themselves to be more competitive on the European level. And what better than to keep its best players. Real Madrid will therefore have to put their hands in their pockets to convince AC Milan to part with one of their best players.
