Top Transfer Rumours Of The Day: Moreno, Fabinho, Donnarumma, And More

1. Gianluigi Donnarumma To Stay At A.C. Milan

What’s the story?

In light of recent events taking place, the image of Italian goalie Donnarumma has gone from that of being heroic and a legend in the making, to that of defining the downside of modern football, in no time. As it was sensationally spread, the news of the shot-stopper rejecting a massive offer from AC Milan to stay at the club, did not go down well with the fans, as the anger was visible in Italy’s world cup qualifier, when fake dollar bills were thrown towards him.

However, AC Milan CEO Marco Fassone has revealed that the young lad might not be heading away eventually.

Should the deal take place?

Marco Fassone, the President of the Serie A side, confirmed the news while speaking to AC Milan TV, as he said: “Without doubt he will stay and next year he will be free to make a decision.”

The player has just a year left on his contract, and if he does not leave this summer, he might be sold as a free agent during the next term. Milan have been pretty clear about the fact that they are listening to offers, and only at the right price will the 18-year-old sensation be sold.

If loyalty is anything to go by in today’s times, Donnarumma should stay and help his boyhood club become the best yet again.

Possibility of it happening

With super agent Mino Raiola at work, the chances of the shot-stopper staying are currently low, at 4/10.

2. Alberto Moreno Bid From Napoli Rejected

What’s the story?

According to sources from Sky Sports, an £11m offer from Napoli for left-back Alberto Moreno has been rejected by Liverpool. The player is currently at a crossroads in his career in England and could well be saying goodbye to Anfield in the transfer window. However, the Reds demand nothing less that £15 million as the price for their defender, and hence, might have to wait for a while before letting him leave.

Should the deal take place?

The player arrived from Sevilla in 2014 for £12 million, and after 3 seasons, 109 appearances, and 3 goals, it is fair to say he has not made the impact he would have liked. The Spanish international had to settle for the bench more often than not under Klopp, as veteran James Milner was made the captain and first choice left-back last season. Pace and aggression are vital attributes of his game, but control, composure and the final third decisions let him down.

As Liverpool contest in the UEFA Champions League too next campaign, his chances of making it back into the squad appear to be getting slimmer, and thus, making a move might be the wise choice.

Possibility of it happening

The chances of him joining Napoli can change if an increased bid is made, but with Sevilla and a couple Premier League clubs also interested, a 9/10 possibility of him leaving exists.

3. Fabinho To Manchester United

What’s the story?

The Mirror might be a good news bearer for Manchester United fans, as it has recently reported that their team is close to signing Fabinho, with an initial agreement of £35 million agreed upon by both clubs.

Should the deal take place?

The Brazilian was key to Monaco’s success last season, and his fitness was proved by him playing 50 fixtures throughout the year.

Jose Mourinho is set to follow Lindelof’s signature with quick buys in order to match rivals Manchester City and build a side worthy of contesting for both the Premier League and the Champions League.

Fabinho can take his career to a higher level at Old Trafford, and his versatility of playing as a right-back, central midfielder or a wing-back can be utterly handy and vital for the Portuguese boss.

Possibility of it happening

The Red Devils stand with a huge chance to bring their target to England, with the possibility of it happening being as high as 9/10.

4. Patrik Schick To Juventus

What’s the story?

Juventus have secured the services of Patrik Schick, who arrived in Turin earlier today for his medical. The Serie A side welcomed the Sampdoria striker by taking to their official Twitter account, as the player completed the procedures and headed back for international duty with Czech Republic.

Should the deal have taken place?

The 21-year-old striker scored 11 goals in 32 games in the Serie A last year, and given his abilities and age, Juventus might be the perfect platform for him to step on and head towards greatness.
