What’s the story?

The young AC Milan goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma, could well be set to move to another club after his recent rejection of a contract renewal with his current side. This sparked various rumours regarding his future, and the latest one from Sport Mediaset (via Football Italia) suggests that Real Madrid are ones most interested in the player’s services.

Should the deal take place?

As AC Milan look to exclude the keeper from their ranks as a punishment for disrespecting the club, Zinedine Zidane is all set to approach the Italian giants with an offer they might not be able to turn down. In addition to a jaw dropping amounts of cash, Keylor Navas is set to be included as part of a negotiation, in order to bring the young Italian to the Bernabeu.

Donnarumma has been a Milan fan and player since his childhood days, and despite Real Madrid on the other side of the deal, leaving a team that showed utmost faith in him is a sight that sadly defines modern football.

Possibility of it happening

The shot stopper is indeed one of the best growing talents in football at the moment, and hence, Los Blancos will do everything in their might to bring him in. A strong 8/10 possibility exists in favour of it happening.

2. Kalidou Koulibaly To Chelsea

What’s the story?

As solid as the defence of the Premier League champions Chelsea might be, the exit of skipper John Terry and an ageing Gary Cahill might be a cause of concern for Antonio Conte. In order to avoid any mishaps during the season, the manager seems eager to bring in solid reinforcements for the back line, and as per reports coming in from Tuttoercatoweb, Kalidou Koulibaly could be the first target on that list.

Should the deal take place?

The defender was vital in Napoli’s successful campaign last term, and as they aim to knock Juventus out of the top spot in the Serie A next season, the club will be eager to keep hold of their main men during the summer. However, the player has super potential to turn into one of the finest, and joining the best side in England might help that process immensely.

Possibility of it happening

The possibility of it happening is no higher than 6/10 at the moment.

3. Cristiano Ronaldo To Leave Real Madrid

What’s the story?

The current Euro Champion, La Liga winner, UEFA Champions League winner and Ballon d’Or defending player, Cristiano Ronaldo, has sensationally been a part of the news off late, after rumours of him wanting to leave the Santiago Bernabeu outfit emerged. The story has gained further momentum after reports claimed that the winger has told his Portugal teammates that his decision to leave Real Madrid is final and irreversible.

Should the deal take place?

The player is without a doubt the best in the world at the moment, and after having won everything there is to win with Real Madrid, he could well be on the lookout for new challenges towards the closing half of his career.

The reports seem further believable after the player was recently accused of tax fraud in Spain, and is also upset with the whistling he receives by the club’s supporters from time to time. If the news is accurate, the money needed to purchase his services will be of a value never seen before, and only few clubs, namely PSG and Manchester United, might be able to afford it.

Possibility of it happening

“I have decided I am leaving Madrid. There is no going back,” was the statement assumed to be said by the Portuguese, hence giving an exit a possibility of 7/10.

4. Young Duo Captured By Monaco

What’s the story?

As mentioned by Monaco on their official Twitter account, the side has recently completed the signing of an exciting young duo, as they prepare to defend their Ligue 1 title for next season. The players reeled in by the French champions go by the names of Jordy Gaspar and Diego Benaglio.

Should the deal have taken place?

Gaspar, the defender, was bought from French rivals Lyon, and the goalkeeper, Diego, was purchased from Bundesliga side, Wolfsburg.

The Monaco squad were successful because of their fluency in attack last season, and they now look to sure things up at the back and in goal. The moves seem like decisions well made, and it sticks to their policy of thriving on a team filled with youth and passion.
