The 6 mercato info that you missed on Tuesday


De Jong open to leaving Barça?

Unhappy to be replaced on the hour mark on Sunday against Rayo Vallecano (0-1), Frenkie de Jong made it known as he left the field. The Dutchman has to deal with some stiff competition in the middle, with youngsters Pedri, Gavi and Nico Gonzalez among others. And while, in the face of speculation over his future, the former Ajax player has recently indicated that he wants to continue at Barca, the tone could change in the coming weeks.

La Cadena Ser indeed indicates that the midfielder would be ready “to study her situation if she was a problem for the club”. The player under contract until 2026 would be aware of the interest of PSG and Bayern Munich, and would therefore not rule out a departure if the Catalan club needed it financially.

  • Our opinion : De Jong is one of the biggest market values ​​in the squad. If Barça is really in trouble economically…

Pogba has not yet made his choice

His departure from Manchester United at the end of his contract, next June, is almost beyond doubt. But for the moment, difficult to know where Paul Pogba will evolve next season. According to Sky Sports, the French world champion will make his decision according to the sports project of the clubs concerned. Real Madrid, Barça, PSG and Juventus would be on the spot. Staying in the Premier League wouldn’t be ruled out either.

  • Our opinion : The start of a long soap opera. Without much competition this summer, Pogba has plenty of time to choose.

Ten Hag with Haller in his suitcases?

Appointed Manchester United coach for next season, Erik ten Hag could well arrive accompanied from Amsterdam. According to Sun, Ajax striker Sébastien Haller, particularly effective in the Champions League this season, could indeed join the ranks of the Red Devils, for a possible operation estimated at 40 million euros. The British daily also cites the name of Darwin Nuñez, a promising Benfica striker.

  • Our opinion : After his half-hearted stint at West Ham, Sébastien Haller could think twice before returning to the Premier League.

Milan dreams of Mahrez

While the Investcorp fund (Bahrain) is preparing to buy AC Milan, for an estimated amount of 1.18 billion euros, the current leader of Series A is dreaming big. According to The Gazzetta dello Sportthe Lombard club would think of Riyad Mahrez, under contract with Manchester City until June 2023. An offer of some 40 million euros would be in the plans, specifies the Italian daily.

  • Our opinion : If Manchester City does not want to find itself under pressure in a few months, it must quickly offer a new lease to the former Le Havre.

Lucas Hernandez interests Barca

Lucas Hernandez back in La Liga three years later? According to information from Sport, the world champion is of interest to FC Barcelona, ​​who particularly appreciate his versatility (left back and central defender). For now, the former Atlético de Madrid player is under contract with Bayern Munich until June 2024.

  • Our opinion : Bayern will not sell off a player bought for 80 million euros. A price that seems beyond the reach of Barça’s finances.

Inter ready to forward Dybala offer

Free at the end of the season, Paulo Dybala will not extend with Juventus Turin. Now, the Argentinian international striker is more than ever in the sights of Inter Milan. According to The Gazzetta dello Sport, the reigning Italian champion could pass on an offer of 6 million euros plus bonuses to the former Palermo player. The Lombard club would continue to maintain contact with those around it.

  • Our opinion : Even if everything is possible in football, Inter Milan could well have taken a slight advantage in the Paulo Dybala file.

“Juve will be able to start a new cycle when Rabiot and Ramsey are gone”

Real Madrid will discuss with Asensio

According to information from journalist Fabrizio Romano, Jorge Mendes, the new agent of Marco Asensio, will meet in the coming days with Real Madrid with a view to a contract extension. Linked to the Madrid club until June 2023, the 26-year-old winger would like to stay but everything will depend on the financial offer he receives. Several other clubs would also follow this file closely.

  • Our opinion : In the rotation of Real Madrid, Marco Asensio is a player who knows how to be decisive (note: 9 goals in La Liga this season) and that could count in the negotiations.

Mertens towards an extension?

Under contract with Naples until next June, Dries Mertens could soon extend according to the Neapolitan daily The morning. If the club has an option to have him back for an additional season, Aurelio De Laurentiis would have recently asked for the Belgian international.

  • Our opinion : At 34, Dries Mertens remains a safe bet for the club and Naples would be wrong to deprive themselves of him for another year.

Kouassi on loan from Bayern?

Tanguy Kouassi is no longer really part of Bayern Munich’s plans. Two years after his arrival from PSG, the defender, who has played “only” 486 minutes this season in the Bundesliga, could be loaned out according to The Team. RB Leipzig would be in pole position to recruit him, although Bayer Leverkusen and AS Monaco also seem to be on the lookout.
  • Our opinion : Nagelsmann has many doubts about Kouassi, Salihamidzic much less. But the choice of the Bavarian coach will be respected.
