Transfer news: Latest on James, Mbappe, Jovic and battle for Malcom
The transfer rumour mill is in full swing, folks. The window may only have been officially open for a few days, but moves are already being made.
The early stages of summer-long sagas are starting to emerge and – as usual – huge fees are being reported on.
Here at Squawka, we’ve got the latest on all the big moves that are in the pipeline – plus the deals already done by early birds such as Borussia Dortmund.
Kylian Mbappe shook things up after being named Ligue 1 Player of the Season with a subtle hint that he could be on the look out for a move away from Paris Saint-Germain.
The club has moved to shut down any suggestion that they could be about to lose their prized asset – but what will the end game be? Probably a new deal for the Frenchman.
However, other rumours doing the rounds are far from likely to end in a bit of movement. Matthijs de Ligt’s future is one of the hottest topics in the game right now and, as it stands, Barcelona seems to be his most likely destination.
Meanwhile, a man who could be on his way out of the Camp Nou is midfielder Malcom.
The Brazilian has struggled to secure regular game time in Spain and a three-way tussle for his signature may well be on the cards – with both Tottenham and Arsenal said to be interested.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United rebuild also looks set to get underway with Swansea speed demon Daniel James edging towards Old Trafford. Blink and you’ll miss him.
