Transfer Rumors: Pep-Messi Reunion, Kane to take a final call on Spurs, and more

Will Lionel Messi pick EPL clubs or not in the transfer window

Pep-Messi Reunion on the cards?

Lionel Messi’s sudden departure from FC Barcelona has shocked the world, and some clubs are on red alert now. Paris Saint-Germain is front runners at the moment, but some reports say that Manchester City is back on the hunt for Messi’s signature. Manchester City was interested in Lionel Messi since last summer when Messi desired his move away from the Catalan club.

This summer, also City contacted Messi’s agents, but Messi said no to Manchester’s side project as he only wanted FC Barcelona. The situation has taken a dramatic turn now, and Manchester City would do anything they could to sign the Argentine magician. Pep is Messi’s favorite coach, and Guardiola has often shown his desire to coach him again. The next few days will be crucial in deciding Messi’s fate.

Harry Kane to stay at Spurs?

Harry Kane is going through a major controversy right now. He refused to train with Tottenham Hotspur in pursuit of forcing his move to Manchester City.  According to reports in London, club officials are very angry with his unprofessional behavior and would take strict actions if he doesn’t return. On the other hand, Harry Kane said, he had a gentleman’s agreement with Mr. Levy of leaving this summer, but things are becoming tense.

His dream move to Manchester City might be in danger as City had already spent €100 million on signing Jack Grealish and is pursuing Lionel Messi now. It will be financially impossible to spend another €100 million to sign Harry Kane. Tottenham Hotspur has already rejected City’s opening bid of €100 million and now looks in no mood to accept one after Harry Kane’s behavior.

Romelu Lukaku’s Homecoming?

Chelsea is hunting for a lethal striker, and they are reportedly closing in on Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku was considered untouchable at Inter, but after Conte’s departure and Hakimi’s sale, he is now not confident on promises made by Inter. Lukaku left Chelsea in 2014 to join Everton, and if he signs for Chelsea, it might be his fairy tale return.

Chelsea is offering Lukaku €12 million per year, which is way more than what he is earning at Inter. In media outlets, it has been said that Lukaku is eager to return to Chelsea as he thinks he has some unfinished business left. He wants to prove in the world’s toughest league after his horrendous spell at Manchester United.

Kieran Trippier over Midfielder for United?

Manchester United is still interested in Kieran Trippier. This summer, they had contacted Atletico Madrid for Trippier, but the Madrid side had slapped a price tag of €34 million, which Manchester United refused. But now, reports are suggesting that Ole is keen on signing his man and is willing to let go Diogo Dalot to make space for English International Kieron Trippier.

Arsenal’s new striker?

Joaquin Correa is the new name in Arsenal’s never-ending transfer wishlist. Arsenal was said to be interested in Inter’s Lautaro Martinez, but Lukaku’s departure would make this impossible now. Arsenal has their sights set on Argentine international Joaquin Correa, who is on the way out of Lazio.

Arsenal is ready to offer Hector Bellerin as well as part of the deal. Arsenal also reportedly had a bid rejected by Leicester City for James Maddison this week. Arsenal is keen on signing a striker or a number 10, and Joaquin Correa is at the top of their list.

Other the Transfer Moves That Can Take Place

Houssem Aouar: The 23-year-old was really close to joining Arsenal last summer, but his move failed. But after Dani Ceballos’s departure this summer, Arsenal is again interested in him, and he will be available for €30 million.

Todd Cantwell– Todd Cantwell might be on his way to follow the footsteps of Emi Buendia to join Aston Villa. The Villa Park’s side has sold Jack Grealish for a record €100 million to Manchester City this week and now is lining up Todd Cantwell as his replacement. He will be reportedly available for €30 million.

Ruben Neves– Manchester United might not be able to sign Ruben Neves this summer as Ole is not confident over signing another player due to financial restrictions. United needs to sell players to inject some cash, but at the moment, Lingard is likely to stay, and Diogo Dalot might only leave for the loan. In that case, it will be hard to sign Neves this summer.
