Top Transfer Rumours Of The Day: Mbappe, Pepe, Saul Niguez, And More

1. Kylian Mbappe To Manchester United

What’s the story?

According to the latest reports coming in from The Sun, the hottest transfer property of the summer, Kylian Mbappe, is now on Jose Mourinho’s radar as Manchester United have made a £100 million bid and joined the highly competitive race to sign the wonder kid.

Should the deal take place?

Mbappe has been in prime form this season after helping Monaco to the Ligue 1 victory and Champions League semi-finals through his blistering pace and goal-getting abilities. The lad has been at the centre of all transfer rumours, which have linked him to both Manchester clubs and Real Madrid. If the striker does choose to leave, he will surely become the world’s most expensive player, but joining a club where Marcus Rashford is already a teenage sensation might not make much sense.

Possibility of it happening

The price tag might be a bit too much for a player who is only 18 years old, and hence, a possibility of the Red Devils dishing out £100 million for him does not stand a higher chance of happening than 4/10.

2. Pepe To PSG

What’s the story?

After saying goodbye to Real Madrid and its fans, veteran Portuguese defender Pepe is all set to make a move to French side Paris Saint-Germain, if reports from MARCA are assumed to be true.

Should the deal take place?

The central defender has been at the Bernabeu for a decade, and has won everything a player possibly can win in an illustrious club career. After parting ways with the Spanish side at the end of the season, Pepe has been on the lookout for a new club, and despite receiving offers from China and Inter Milan, Unai Emery’s PSG have come out as the player’s next destination. The French team are looking to bounce back from a poor season, and having the experience of Pepe in their ranks will do them huge favours.

Possibility of it happening

With him out of contract and being a free agent at the moment, Pepe looks certain to make a move to the French capital, and hence, the deal has a 9/10 chance of reaching a positive conclusion.

3. Saul Niguez To Barcelona

What’s the story?

As Ernesto Valverde arrives in Barcelona as the new manager and aims to turn around a disappointing season for the Catalan club, Don Balon (via Daily Star) has come out with reports claiming that Atletico Madrid winger Saul Niguez has become a top priority for Barca, with Messi leading that charge himself.

Should the deal take place?

As Barcelona prepare for life possibly without Andres Iniesta and aim to knock Real Madrid out of the top position in Spanish football, a £72 million clause will have to be reached to release the extremely versatile player from Atleti’s grasp. However, Saul might be slightly convinced to stay with Diego Simeone in Madrid due to his love for the club and the recent transfer ban they have received.

Possibility of it happening

Lionel Messi is a fan of Saul and his abilities, but Atletico’s current troublesome position might restrict a deal from taking place. Hence, a chance of 5/10 exists which can go in either direction.

4. Bacary Sagna Is A Free Agent In Demand

What’s the story?

The French and Ex-Manchester City right back has recently been released by Pep Guardiola, and is a target for fellow League clubs like Newcastle United, Southampton, and Crystal Palace, as per reports from Daily Star. The 34-year-old has ample experience of playing in England’s top flight after successful campaigns with Arsenal and Man City, and could be a valuable, priceless addition for any team that secures his services.

Should the deal take place?

Sagna is currently not a member of any football club and will be desperate to pen a new deal as soon as possible to keep him in the loop of things and fight for a chance to be in the world cup that takes place in 2018. The side which is the quickest to show interest in him will most certainly become the one he signs for.

Possibility of it happening

As long as it is a Premier League club and the wages keep the player happy, a 10/10 chance stands tall of him not going out of the country.
