MU received good news De Jong, Man City bought a new midfielder, Liverpool can buy a ‘new Pedri’ for 30 million euros are the latest transfer news today, November 8.
MU can sign De Jong right in January 2023
The Mirror newspaper said that MU has a golden opportunity to sign De Jong as early as in the winter transfer – January 2023.
According to this source, Barca solved a significant financial problem after Pique decided to hang up his shoes, parting the club right in the middle of the season. The 35-year-old midfielder is also reported to also ‘give’ the remaining 40 million euros in his contract with the Catalan team.
As a reminder, Barca plans to bring Bernardo Silva from Man City in early 2023.
And Erik ten Hag will love this when the city rival risks losing an important pillar, and he has a great opportunity to convince De Jong to come to Old Trafford.
The Dutch midfielder repeatedly rejected MU in the summer, but the situation may now change after De Jong felt frustrated with the way Barca leaders treated and forced him to leave.
He was also more limited in playing time as Xavi preferred to have Gavi and Pedri play with Sergio Busquet instead of De Jong.
Interestingly, despite the hardships of signing De Jong like Erik ten Hag, he never gave up his intention.
Chelsea shopping again in January
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano said that Chelsea will look to upgrade the squad in the winter market after recent poor form.
Chelsea have just lost to Arsenal 0-1 at home, marking the 4th consecutive game without a win in the Premier League. Coach Potter claims it takes time but he hopes to have some changes in the squad by January 2023.
The Blues were the biggest spenders of the summer, but were advised to shop smarter.
“Chelsea will try to find opportunities in January before entering another busy summer. They need to calculate smart now.
Maybe Chelsea need a right-back but they need time. I think the break for the World Cup will be the key for Potter to improve.”
The Stamford Bridge team is in the transition period between the old and new owners, so the impact cannot be avoided. Billionaire Todd Boehly bought the club from Roman Abramovich, while Graham Potter replaced Thomas Tuchel, and key figures like Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech all left the club.
Liverpool can sign ‘new Pedri’ for 30 million euros
AS newspaper reported, Liverpool Real Madrid and Barca as well as Dortmund all want to recruit 19-year-old attacking midfielder, Alberto Moleiro of Spain’s second division, Las Palmas.
According to this source, Klopp is very close to Moleiro and wants Liverpool to sign him when the team needs to strengthen the midfield.
Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner are all out of contract in the summer, while the midfield as a whole has been plagued with injury problems this season.
Moleiro is described by Goal as the ‘new Pedri’, a player who can play on the left wing or as an attacking midfielder.
Moleiro’s strengths are his ability to pass and control the ball, as well as possessing remarkable speed.
AS provided further, Moleiro’s release clause is 30 million euros, but that figure could be doubled if Las Palmas is promoted this season.
