“Real Madrid have reached a verbal agreement with Antonio Rudiger. The contract has not yet been signed, but Real is closing the deal. The contract is for the long term, further details will be discussed later.”
Mbappe the hot topic
The main attraction of this transfer window is Kylian Mbappe. The Ligue 1 top goalscorer is at the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain. The French striker must renew within the PSG or fly to Spain’s side in Madrid. The White House club dreams of the 2018 champion: he had already made an offer of 200 million euros last year, which was refused by Nasser al-Khelaïfi.
But the performances, still disappointing in Europe this season, could push Mbappé to the exit. Eliminated in the round of 16 to Real Madrid, PSG plans to clean up its workforce. But the sporting director of the Leonardo club and the chairman Nasser al-Khelaïfi want to keep the French genius. Mbappe dreamed of the club from Madrid from an early age.
But this Thursday, Le Parisien reveals that the French player would have accepted a two-year extension at the capital club. A 2-year contract with an optional year and a salary of 50 million net per year. According to a source known with the case, the world champion would receive a loyalty bonus of 100 million euros net. Despite everything, nothing has been confirmed and the club’s performance in the 13th Champions League this Wednesday night did not go unnoticed. In the evening, Fabrizio Romano contested the information provided by the French newspaper. The Italian journalist states that Kyllian Mbappe’s mother has stated that there was no agreement with the capital’s club or other clubs.
Real Madrid have already signed Antonio Rudiger to step up on the offensive front after the failures of Hazard and Bale. The Bondy resident has already received offers of more than €50 million a year to renew, but all of them have already been turned down. The player wants sports guarantees. Mbappe, who carried the club from the capital with 35 goals and 23 assists this season, wants the selection to be strengthened. The conflicts between the supporters and the management should not help the Frenchman prolong. Has the choice been made? Or is it still too early?

– 2 year contract + 1 year option
– salary of 50 M€/year net
– loyalty bonus of €100 million net
According to a source very close to the case, he will be attacking his sixth season in Paris!

Paul Pogba, one last shot and then go
At the age of 29, Paul Pogba is emerging from failure at Manchester United. Arriving for 110 million euros in 2016, the French world champion has accumulated injuries and poor performances in recent seasons. At the end of the contract with the English club, the midfielder will not renew.
The Frenchman could then sign for Paris Saint-Germain, who appear to be one of the few clubs to match his salary. The Paris club wants to strengthen its midfield after another disappointment in the Champions League. The PSG management wants to say goodbye to Georginio Wijnaldum and Leandro Paredes who have not performed well this season.
But things can get complicated for the Pickaxe. According to the Parisian, the leaders of the PSG would think twice before calling on the services of the French. The midfielder’s numerous injuries are said to have cooled the capital. Especially because he would also have set his sights on Aurélien Tchouaméni and Seko Fofana. Even before the start of the season, the competition is fierce.
Paulo Dybala, the rough diamond that has never been polished
Argentinian Paulo Dybala is also out of contract with Juventus. Arriving in 2015, the Joya is no longer central to the project of the Old Lady. The hiring of Dusan Vlahovic as a base man for her future has officially confirmed that she has no intention of keeping her number 10.”Dybala is no longer central to the Juve project. His qualities were never discussed, but other choices were made. The January transfer market changed the team’s technical structure. The project has undergone some changes and some of these changes also concern Dybala, which has not been extended today.” Maurizio Arrivabene, Juventus CEO
From this announcement, several clubs placed themselves on the Argentine† Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham and Newcastle stood out. But according to Gazzetta dello Sport, La Joya wants to stay in Italy and commit to Inter Milan. He will receive €6 million per year + bonus until 2026.
Ousmane Dembele has left to stay
This winter it was announced that Ousmane Dembélé will leave FC Barcelona. The Frenchman, who was frequently injured and underperformed, had failed to convince the Catalan leaders, who had invested more than 120 million in the wing. But the Frenchman’s attractive second half of the season convinced both parties for an extension. Since January, the 2018 world champion has scored 1 goal and provided 9 assists.
But other clubs are interested in Dembele. To compensate for the possible losses of Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappé, PSG inquired about the Frenchman. Manchester United have also positioned themselves as a serious candidate. A salary offer between 10 and 15 million euros, rejected by the player. The will of the French and continue to force themselves into Xavi’s elf.

Rangnick on Cristiano Ronaldo and the plans: “You have to ask Erik ten Hag to integrate Cristiano into his system. Cristiano has shown that he can be vital for the team. It is clear that the team needs more attackers.”
Other players are also very popular. Robert Lewandowski has a very uncertain future at Bayern Munich and could pack his bags at United like Cristiano Ronaldo. The new coach of the Red Devils, Erik Ten Hag, does not want the Portuguese in his workforce. Neymar will also be watched if Paris Saint Germain could part ways with their Brazilian star.
