TRANSFERS – Ronaldo, Icardi, OM and Arsenal, the 13 facts that escaped you on Thursday


Ronaldo does not rule out a move to Brazil

In remarks given to ESPN, Cristiano Ronaldo was asked about a possible departure, one day, to Brazil. And the fivefold Ballon d’Or has not completely closed the door to this possibility. « Playing in Brazil, who knows? Nobody would have said that I will return to Manchester at 36 and I am here. Play in Brazil? It’s very far from my mind. But, in football, everything is possible, I don’t know« said the current Manchester United player.

  • Our opinion : Even if he does not rule out this possibility, we can imagine Ronaldo ending his career in MLS.

Icardi, it blocks

What will Maurco Icardi do this winter? Although courted by Juventus Turin, the Argentine striker is still on the side of Paris, where his story is still floundering. According to Sky Italia, the Old Lady is certainly still interested in the PSG player, but we still have to convince PSG to part with him … on loan. A formula that obviously does not suit the club of the capital. The Argentinian international would also like to have more guarantees on his future.

  • Our opinion : PSG will hardly let go of Icardi on loan. Lost sentence for Juve?

Arthur to Arsenal?

Came into play against Inter Milan on Wednesday evening during the Italian Super Cup lost by Juventus (2-1), Arthur could have played his last minutes in the bianconero jersey.

OL should keep Emerson

Although Chelsea offered €4m to break Emerson’s loan to Lyon and repatriate him to London to compensate for the multiple injuries at left-back, OL did not want to let go of the Italian.

Kamara still interests Roma

In today’s edition, The Gazzetta dello Sport looks back on the arrival of Sergio Oliveira at Roma from FC Porto. And the transalpine daily ensures that the Roman transfer window is not over.
