Barça in the home stretch!
In recent days, there has been panic in Catalonia, since Barça still could not register their latest recruits. But the leaders have found the solution. They finalized the sale of 24.5% of the exploitation rights of Barca Studios. This maneuver is supposed to bring 100 million euros to the club. But that may not be enough. Barca will need more money to be able to register the seven recruited players whose Lewandowski, Raphinha or Kounde… The Blaugranas therefore hope to obtain various salary cuts, in particular with Frankie de Jong, Busquets and even Gerard pricks. The Barcelona leaders also continue the degreasing operation. Samuel Umtiti is always pushed towards the exit. And Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be close to signing for Chelsea. But despite these economic worries, the Blaugranas should soon welcome two recruits in the coming days: Bernard Silva and Marc Alonso. The former would be closer than ever to joining Barcelona. The club made him a promise, he will be recruited before the end of the summer transfer window. Barça would have managed to find a new agreement with Manchester City around a transfer between 50 and 55 million euros.
The Icardi clan drives Paris crazy
Paris has so far only managed to part ways with two players this summer: Georginio Wijnaldum and Arnaud Californication. And one of the main undesirables of the club is certainly Mauro Icardi. The Argentinian has a comfortable contract in Paris, he didn’t want to leave initially, but the pressure from PSG ended up doing its job. Indeed, according to TyC Sportshis representatives and in particular his wife Wanda Naraare negotiating with two big European teams: Manchester United and Galatasaray. For Icardi, a loan with option to buy is mentioned by the Argentine media. Finally, nothing has been done yet. Asked by Argentine TV, the player’s wife and agent calmed everyone down about a possible departure: “ he continues to be part of the club for another two years. To release a player, you have to pay a lot of money and that is not the case. (…) I am the only one who knows things. Not like others who speak without knowing anything.” The message got through.
