First of all, finally, football is returning this weekend with Bundesliga returning with some great fixtures,
I'm also attaching schedule below, check it out!
Manchester United face issues to keep Odion Ighalo:
Newcastle United is rumored to be interested to sign the striker from Shanghai Shenhua if the takeover is completed. Ighalo’s former team expects the striker to return from the loan spell and return for the Chinese league which is going to start in July later. Man Utd is very eager to extend Odion's loan at least until the end of Premier League as they try to qualify for Champions league, the date of Premier League is not clear yet but reports suggest that it will be back in soon.
Spurs not interesting in the sale of Ndombele :
Tottenham have are not interested in leaving Tanguy Ndombele this summer, says BBC Sport. The player has been struggling since he made his move from Lyon last summer to London. Jose Mourinho also expressed his discontent over the player’s performance. Despite certain reports which claimed him being unsettled, Ndombele is not expected to leave Tottenham this transfer window.
Borussia Dortmund expects Jadon Sancho to stay at the club:
The German giants expect the player to stay at the club after this transfer window but reports seem that Sancho is not willing to extend his contract which expires in 2020.
In March, Dortmund's chief executive stated that the club won't stand in between if the player is willing to depart. "You always have to respect what the player wants," Bild stated. "We already said before the coronavirus pandemic that our preference is for Jadon to remain with us."Many speculations have gone around regarding the English forward with interests from Europe's top clubs including Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Barcelona.
Philippe Coutinho: Chelsea offered a chance to sign him by Barcelona
Philippe Coutinho who is currently on loan at Bayern Munich until the end of the season, Bayern is not likely to take up their option to sign him on a permanent deal.
Chelsea is willing to strengthen their team this transfer window and they have already signed Hakim Ziyech while Pedro, Willian, and Oliver Giroud’s contracts are expiring and I think that would be a great move for Chelsea and Barcelona who need cash for Neymar move. Sources say that Coutinho is ready for a premier league move as said by his agent.
NEYMAR SAYS NO to PSG
Neymar has rejected the contract extension at PSG and demanded a transfer return to Barcelona this summer, Spanish outlet SPORT, claims that Neymar is hell-bent on returning to Barcelona this summer. Barcelona has a very tricky summer transfer window coming up with them wanting to buy Lautaro Martinez and Neymar and they’re sure to lure PSG in a player exchange deal along with some cash. Barca, last summer did everything they could to sign Neymar but they couldn’t. Various French outlets also claim that PSG’s all focus Is on Mbappe and they’re ready to leave Neymar if they want for the right money.
· Former Barcelona president Joan Laporta has said that he would love to bring old Barca manager Pep Guardiola back to coach the club if he wins next year's election.
