Why did Messi have to leave? –Koeman suspects Barca

Former Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has questioned the club’s decision to let Messi go because of a bad financial position only to pay €55million six months later to sign a player.

Koeman had to sanction the departure of some first-team stars including Messi and Griezmann due to the club exceeding its wage limits. However, after he was axed for poor results, his replacement and fellow club legend, Xavi has been given the chance to add several new faces to his squad including Ferran Torres from City, Adama Traore on loan, and  Aubameyang and Dani Alves on a free transfer.

Premier League clubs including West Ham, Newcastle United and Aston Villa have all reportedly expressed interest in taking Wijnaldum back to the premier league, a year after he departed Liverpool for PSG.

Timo Werner may consider Dortmund move

Chelsea forward Timo Werner may consider moving back to the Bundesliga with Dortmund after getting frustrated with his limited opportunities at Stamford Bridge.

The German has seen his involvement limited since the arrival of Lukaku who has failed to light up since switching Milan for London in the summer.

Werner was influential as Chelsea advanced to the FA Cup last 8, with a goal and two assists but he may now have to end his stay with the London-based club in order to seek more playing time elsewhere.

Barcelona ink closer to Christensen and Kessie deals

Barcelona are moving very closer to securing the signatures of two of their top targets, Andrea Christensen and Franck Kessie.

Both players will join as free agents with their contracts ending at the end of the season. Christensen may well renew at Chelsea if the club meets his demands but Kessie seems to have his mindset for a switch after rejecting renewal offers from Milan.

Meanwhile, Chelsea has launched a final bid to keep the Dane at Stamford Bridge despite the academy graduate on the verge of signing a pre-contract with Barcelona, according to 90min.

We have not contacted Zidane and Pochettino has not asked to leave -PSG

PSG sporting director Leonardo Araujo has informed L’Équipé that the club has no intention of parting ways with Pochettino at the end of the season.

He said as quoted by the French newspaper, “We’ve never thought about changing our manager. We’ve never contacted Zidane or anyone. I can say that Mauricio Pochettino has never asked to leave. I have no problem with him. We talk about everything”.

Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool are all considering submitting a bid for Torino right-back Wilfried Singo, who would be available for £25m.

The Ivorian’s contract at Torino is not up until June 2023 but the Granata may seek to cash in while there is time.
