  • Post anything that was tweeted more than three days ago. If it wasn't posted before then, nobody cares.

Last Tuesday Yunus Musah's agent met with Valencia.

For the first time the club is open to his sale, for the time being at a price of 25M

No offers but West Ham have asked for his terms, is option if Rice leaves
More info:
  • Valencia are open to selling Musah now as he hasn't performed as well as he did in past seasons.
  • English teams are interested in Musah as he's easier to bring in thanks to his English citizenship.

Roberto de Zerbi on eventually coming back to Italy:
I love Italy, our football, because I’m Italian, I’m fine there [in England] now, never had a doubt about coming to Brighton. I get along very well with everyone at Brighton, there is no team that can change my mind, I have made a commitment.

I will hopefully return to Italy, I don’t know when, if I have the chance.
But I tell you that I like being outside, the emotions I’m experiencing in England, the stadiums, then I improve my language, I know their football. You become master of the league when you exceed 100 matches.

Tier 2:

Chelsea are prioritising a new striker, goalkeeper, and defensive midfielder ahead of a new attacking midfielder.

Tier 1:
  • Wolves are open to selling Collins but aren't going to push him out [i.e. it'll take a good offer to let him go].
  • Brentford value the player at ~£20m.

Frattesi on the interest in him this summer:
I told my agent to call me only if there are important proposals. In my choice, the club’s game and tactics will be decisive. For me, a three-man midfield is better where you need a midfielder. And a team that plays a good game.
On leaving Italy:
Scamacca, Zaniolo, Gnonto and others have left to play. Some got it wrong, for sure. Ours is the only championship that denigrates its players and looks for them abroad. I know that one day I will go to another championship, but calmly. I’ve always gone step by step. Three years in Serie B, two in Sassuolo, now I have to grow up in Italy, then abroad if necessary.

Athletic Madrid ask high for Renan Lodi and difficult return to Brazil

Full-back wants to return to Athletico [Paranaense]
The full statement from Renan Lodi's agent Pablo Miranda:
Renan has three more years of contract with Atletico Madrid. At first he represents himself with the Atletico Madrid group to fulfill his contract. Everyone knows Renan's affection for Athletico and the city. And every year, since he left, there is speculation of his return. Now they even leaked an audio out of context. So I want to say that it is virtually impossible he returns to Athletico or Brazilian football

Manchester City and Bernardo Silva are aware of PSG's intentions, but so far the player is taking his time to decide.

He has NOT yet given the green light for a transfer.

His desire is to go to Spain, but as of today he has no offer. The option to extend with City is still on the table.

It's a great conversation from what I've heard:

Levy: "We will give you 20m including addons"
Phil Giles: "If you want to sign David its 40m all in"
Levy: "We will give you 21m including addons""
Phil Giles: "If you want to sign David its 40m all in"
Levy: "We will give you 22m including addons""
Phil Giles: "If you want to sign David its 40m all in"
etc etc......

Tier 1:
Kalidou Koulibaly and Romelu Lukaku will NOT remain at Chelsea, for different reasons.
  • The centre-back is NOT in Pochettino's plans and has a market. The English club is looking for a way out for him and are trying to include him in other operations to obtain other players.
  • Inter want Koulibaly, but they will need a formula that suits everyone.
  • Lukaku wants to return to Inter and is not considering other options at the moment.
  • Chelsea are looking for a goalkeeper and Onana is among the most sought after.

Aston Villa want Nico Williams

His contract expires in 2024 and he has a 50 million Euro buyout clause.
Aston Villa look to tempt Nico Williams over by offering him a contract with a much higher salary than what he's currently earning at Bilbao.
