Transfer Gossip: Pogba hold up revealed, Bonucci, Sissoko & Messi

Chievo-v-Juventus-Pogba-Bonucci-1024x680Manchester United’s move for Paul Pogba has been dragging to the extent that me, a Man United fan, couldn’t give a toss if he signs or not. It’s boring, and the excitement has gone and it’s all be cause of agent fees!

The Sun report that the move is done but a small matter of who pays agent Mino Raiola’s £25m fee for getting the deal done is holding everything up.

Now given that United have signed two of his players already this summer in Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, I can understand the reluctance to shell out big bucks to sign a third but that said, why would Juventus pay Raiola to lose one of their star players?

Time to cough up the extra dough Ed!

It seems United’s spending isn’t finished though, as they have been linked with a £50m move for Juve’s Leonardo Bonucci. The defender was a standout in Italy’s Euro 2016 side and has already been the subject of a failed bid by Man City.

The MEN report United will rival their rivals for the signature of Bonucci and frankly given that there is a chance Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo could feature at centre-back for Jose Mourinho, PAY EVERYTHING, IN FULL, TO GET HIM!

Another United signing? Why not! This time for Brazilian Gabriel Jesus who was believed to have signed for Inter, then Man City then everyone else with the money to afford him.

The 19 year old has a minimum release clause of £20m and it is believed that United will again rival Man City for his signature.

Let’s get away from United now, they seem to be throwing money about and I’m slightly worried they may come and buy this laptop I’m typing from!

Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund are locked in a head to head battle for Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko according to Le 10 Sport.

The midfielder was a titan in the middle of the park for France at Euro 2016, a complete contrast to the mouse who played for the Magpies as they were relegated last term.

Mike Ashley slapped a £35m price tag on the Frenchman amidst post tournament interest, meaning Liverpool who have already signed Georginio Wijnaldum from the North East club this summer and Dortmund will have to spend big to acquire his services.

These the two sides have gone head to head twice this summer for players with Liverpool missing out on both Ousmane Dembele and Mario Gotze, can the German side make it a hat trick?

Some good news for Chelsea fans as defensive target Kalidou Koulibaly will leave Napoli this summer according to his agent.

The 25 year old has been linked with a move to the West London club with Everton also registering their interest and comments from the Senegalese defender’s agent will offer both encouragement.

Speaking to Radio CRC, Bruno Satin confirmed Chelsea interest and his player’s intention to leave the Italian club.

And finally for some comic relief, Man City believe that they can sign Barcelona’s footballing God Lionel Messi.

With former Barcelona alumni Txiki Begiristain, Ferran Sorano and now Pep Guardiola at the club Man City are trying to build a little Catalunya in the North West of England to make Messi feel at home and believe that they would be his first choice if he was to leave the Nou Camp.

Wishful thinking lads!
