On the program of this JT Foot Transfer market: the health crisis upsets the football planet, a club duel to afford Ousmane Dembélé, and FC Barcelona who wants to recruit Alvaro Morata.
Football ruined by Covid
The Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc on the planet of football. All the championships are affected and records of positive cases are falling. The Premier League announced 103 positive cases in one week, a sad record. The pandemic has not spared La Liga either, 14 players are affected at FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, including the French Dembélé, Umtiti or Camavinga. In League 1, there are 24 positive cases within the Angers workforce and around fifteen in the Girondins de Bordeaux. In Serie A, Victor Osimhen confirmed today to have tested positive. Many matches are forced to be postponed and the threat of stopping the European championships is increasingly present.
Dembélé close to PSG
The negotiations between Ousmane Dembélé and FC Barcelona got complicated. The French player demands a surreal salary and bonuses. The world champion has never fully adapted to Barça and the Spanish way of life. It is in this context that PSG entered the competition to acquire the player. His arrival could replace the possible departure this summer of Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid. According to Mundo Deportivo, the Parisian leaders have even already met Moussa Sissoko, who is none other than Dembélé’s agent. But PSG are not the only club to want to afford the French striker. According to the Catalan newspaper Sport, the discussions between Dembélé and Juventus are on the right track. It’s a real battle that looms between the two clubs to afford the Barça player.
The future of Alvaro seems to be emerging in Catalonia. According to the daily AS, negotiations are already underway between the striker loaned by Atlético de Madrid to Juve and FC Barcelona. The deal is not yet completed, but discussions are well advanced. Xavi even personally called the 29-year-old. He wishes to associate him with Ferran Torres on the front of the attack. Despite 23 appearances for 7 goals and 3 assists in all competitions with the Bianconeri this season, the Spaniard is not feeling well in Turin. An arrival at FC Barcelona this winter is more than possible.
