Translation:As of today there is a feeling that Nottingham Forest will not execute the 30 million [Euros] purchase of Renan Lodi. The signals are these. The purchase is NOT obligatory.
Renan would return to Atletico, but not to stay. For him, the doors of the market would open again.
The Brazilian full-back has a contract with Atlético until 2026.
PSG are targeting Bernardo Silva as a priority.
Bernardo wants to try a new experience and will try to leave Manchester City in the summer.
At the top of his wish list is Spain, his preferred destination.
On whether he wants to continue with Tottenham and play in the PL:No, no. Absolutely not.
[Smiling] Absolutely, that’s right.
The relevant questions & answers:"My mission is accomplished." Sporting director Paul Mitchell confirms his future departure from AS Monaco and explains the reasons
Paul, is your choice made? Are you going to leave AS Monaco?
Yes. It was a very difficult decision. I loved my experience at this club. I have always felt a lot of support from the president Dmitri Rybolovlev and the Principality. We had several discussions about my mission, about the possibility of changing my role within the club, of extending my contract. I am very grateful to the president for having trusted me. We built a relationship based on transparency and honesty. But I have spent a lot of time away from home and my family in recent years. I feel that the mission I had, which was to rebuild the sports project, has been fulfilled.
Your contract ends in June 2024. When will you leave?
I have to find my successor, accompany him in his first steps at Monaco and guide him until the president and I decide that it is time for me to step aside. We want the transition to be as smooth and consistent as possible. The idea is to continue to be strategic. The market is becoming increasingly difficult. Legislation has changed a lot, especially in terms of finance. Clubs have to do things differently, think longer term. The success or failure of a club is no longer dictated solely by the wealth of the shareholder. You have to work carefully. You must always have a clear plan. By announcing my departure in advance, I'm giving us time to execute that plan.
You are regularly mentioned by big clubs (Liverpool, Manchester United...) Will you be able to make them wait?
Everything that is currently being said in the media is not necessarily true. My responsibility is to concentrate on Monaco and I take it very seriously. It doesn't matter whether I'm appreciated or not, I've always put the club before my personal interests. That is what I will continue to do. Life is a question of timing, you can never say never but I want to leave this project on a solid footing.
So no worries about the next transfer window?
If I speak today, it is precisely to put an end to rumours, speculation and worries. With clarity and transparency, we can avoid making the wrong decisions, falling into panic or into crises that have no reason to exist. There has always been noise around me, but this time I want to be clear. I'm going to work so that we can achieve the best possible transfer window and bring back the ideal profile in order to continue the story. Everyone must be reassured. The club continues to move in the right direction, with the same working principles.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Carlos Mac Allister talked about his son's football future. Where is Alexis' best place to play?
Sources at Barcelona insist that the club's still in the running for Ndicka. However, they won't enter a bidding war for the player if such a situation arises.There are good reports about the centre-back, who is finishing his contract with Eintracht Frankfurt, but the club knows that Paris SG, Juventus, Milan, Inter and Liverpool are all in the hunt for him.
Has he ever played for Chelsea?Official: Marcus Bettinelli signs a new contract with Chelsea until 2026
He's only made 1 appearance throughout his time with Chelsea against Chesterfield in the FA Cup last season. That's it.Has he ever played for Chelsea?
Must be delighted to have another 3 years of salary for turning up to training for a few hours every day and every weekend off.He's only made 1 appearance throughout his time with Chelsea against Chesterfield in the FA Cup last season. That's it.
That Tweet fits the thread, especially since you provided the translation, so you're good. Slightly more info on the other clubs (Tier 2):I'm new to this, so not sure if this fits the criteria. I think it should:
“Arsenal have already contacted Frankfurt for Lindstrøm. The club expects his departure and can leave for 30m euros. 3-4 other clubs have also contacted. Contract until 2026”
