Top Transfer Rumours Of The Day: Vinicius, Coutinho, Lukaku, And More

1. Mateo Musacchio To A.C.Milan

What’s the story?

The Argentine defender is all set to make a move to the Serie A, as AC Milan look to strengthen their defence to continue their rise towards the top of Italian and European football once again.

Should the deal take place?

The defender has been a success at Villarreal for the past 7 seasons, and has an enhanced reputation of adding strength and experience to the back line in any team. Milan, with their new Chinese owners, look to go out all guns blazing to awaken the sleeping giant, and this step should be taken to fasten that process.


2. Vinicius Junior To Real Madrid

What’s the story?

As per reports from The Sun, a stunning £39 million move for the Flamengo player is all set to be placed this week, as Junior gets ready to join European giants Real Madrid in the year 2018.

Should the deal take place?

At the age of 16, the player has already impressed the big boys in his senior debut campaign, and after earning the title of the ‘Next Neymar’, he has managed to attract positive attention from Los Blancos and will soon be joining them too. With another year left to cross the Atlantic, the player can mature himself into a worthy Madridista, and when the time arrives, also show the world what he’s made up of.

Possibility of it happening

Despite the lad not being an adult yet, the wonderboy has talent in high magnitudes and it can be enough to take him all the way. The deal sounds like an exciting prospect, and one for the future, hence earning a possibility of 6/10.


3. Carlos Soler To Barcelona

What’s the story?

Calciomercato has recently made a sensational claim regarding Barcelona and their latest transfer target, Carlos Soler, a player they are pursuing from Valencia for a €80 million-worth jaw-dropping fee.

Should the deal take place?

The midfielder is a versatile player with highly adaptive qualities, resulting in him being termed as ‘The Next David Silva,’ and with 3 goals and 1 assist to his name, he has been one of Valencia’s rare good things to come out of this season. However, such a massive price tag seems hardly justified for a 20-year-old, and with Barca looking to replace Andres Iniesta, they should probably opt for more experience and higher certified quality.

Possibility of it happening

Despite having a hole to fill in midfield, the deal seems highly unlikely to come to a positive conclusion, and hence, has a chance of 2/10.


4. Romelu Lukaku To Cost £100 Million

What’s the story?

Chelsea and Manchester United might have to reconsider joining the race to sign Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, as the Toffees have gone ahead and placed a world record fee of £100 million on their Belgian superstar, if reports from The Sun are believed to be true.

Should the deal take place?

The Red Devils looks more eager to land the forward, as Mourinho looks for an outright goal scorer to replace Zlatan next season, but the possible departure of Diego Costa might also convince Conte to take interest in Stamford Bridge’s former striker. The centre forward is a beast on the pitch and has proved his goal getting abilities throughout the past few seasons, coming second in the golden boot race this time around. The fee might be a little on the high side, but through negotiation and smart dealing, he is a talent that should immediately be cashed in on.

Possibility of it happening

With Lukaku surely leaving and both clubs ready to battle it out, an equal chance of 8/10 seems fair to give the deal falling in favour of either of the two teams involved.


5. Philippe Coutinho To Stay At Liverpool

What’s the story?

According to news coming in from the Mirror, Philippe Coutinho has shown interest in staying with the Merseyside club and snubbing Barcelona in the process.

Should the deal take place?

Coutinho is one of Liverpool’s prime players, and his 13 goals in this season’s league campaign were vital to ensure the club got Champions League football for next term.

With the fans urging him to put pen to paper and Klopp claiming the midfielder is ready to stay, Coutinho told ESPN Brazil: “Go somewhere else, to Barcelona, to Bayern Munich, to Real Madrid, and you will be just another player. Here you can be something more.”

The Kop loves the Brazilian, and staying put might be the wiser choice to make for the time being.

Possibility of it happening

Having Champions League all but secured, and title bids being the plan next term, Coutinho will be the centre of attention around everything big, and hence, the chances of him staying are a solid 9/10.
