Chelsea compete with PSG for Hakimi
Inter Milan have to sell this summer, and their Moroccan right-back Achraf Hakimi (22) shining with the Italian champions 2020-21, could be sacrificed. Negotiations seemed advanced with Paris Saint-Germain, ready to pay € 60 million. But according to Sky Sport Italia, Chelsea have submitted a similar offer to Inter, who still want to raise the ante. The Blues are said to be ready to add their Italian left-back and usual replacement Emerson (26), or their Danish central defender Andreas Christensen (25) in the balance. A hypothesis swept aside for Inter, says the Gazzetta dello Sport. At the Nerazzurri, we need money and not additional players.
Paris in the race for Pogba, MU under pressure
Like his fellow world champions Ousmane Dembélé or Kylian Mbappé, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will be out of contract in a year. Discussions about an extension have not advanced between the two parties for months. ESPN reports that a meeting is expected after the Euro. The question would be how the Red Devils intend to catch up on their neighbor Manchester City, comfortably crowned champion of England last season. It would therefore be up to the English club to convince Pogba (28) that his best sporting future lies in Manchester. According to a source close to the Pogba clan, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are rubbing their hands to get it back for free in a year.
Ramos ready to do anything to extend to Real?
Is this the outcome of the Sergio Ramos soap opera? The iconic defender and captain of Real Madrid, where he has played since 2005, will be without a club from July 1. He has been negotiating an extension for months. The problem: Ramos (35) wanted two years and an equivalent salary, while Real offered him only one year and a salary cut by 10%. His departure seemed inevitable after the recruitment of Austrian defender David Alaba, at the end of his contract at Bayern Munich. But the daily AS reveals that Ramos is waiting for a final phone call from Florentino Pérez. He wants to retire in Madrid and would ultimately agree to only re-stack for one year, as well as the mentioned salary cut. The extensions of his team-mates Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez, in addition to the return of Carlo Ancelotti on the bench, would prompt Ramos not to leave Real as well.
