Dembele or Raphinha
Raphinha has been talked about at FC Barcelona for a while now as a replacement for Ousmane Dembélé. For the Catalan newspaper Sport, there is only one point left to settle for his transfer. Negotiations between Leeds United and Barca have already entered their final stages. Barca have presented the Elland Road side with what they consider their final offer: it’s €55m. The Auriverde should land in Catalonia on Monday. But Barça still believes in the return of Ousmane Dembélé, free of any contract for 9 days. As can be read in Mundo Deportivo, the French winger and the club have finally agreed on a new contract. “Dembouz” would sign until June 2024 and would have the same salary as Ansu Fati, with a 40% drop compared to what he received before. This decision could then block the transfer of Raphinha.
Horror for Klopp
In England, the incidents that took place during the Champions League final at the Stade de France are still fresh in people’s minds. Especially for Jürgen Klopp who made a huge revelation about this event yesterday. This is the first time he has spoken about these facts. He condemns ” brutality and disgusting treatment“which left the fans of his club”lucky the worst didn’t happen“. Crucially, he revealed that his own family had been caught up in the chaos in the French capital, but hid the situation from him before the Real Madrid encounter to allow him to focus on the game. Clearly, for the German, a disaster like this must never happen again.
Manchester Ajax United
Since the appointment of Erik ten Hag at the head of the Red Devils, the club has practically only targeted players or former players of Ajax. The new target now is Lisandro Martinez. Manchester United have increased their latest offer for the club defender Ajacide to €50m, according to The Sun. And according to the Daily Mail, the 24-year-old Argentinian is forcing his management because he absolutely wants to play in the Premier League. But we will have to face competition from Arsenal on this issue. Meanwhile, the Red Devils have also made contact with RB Leipzig over Brian Brobbey. The 20-year-old striker, who was previously under Ten Hag at Ajax, would not be against finding him in England.
