According to cope and Gerard Romero, Barça would have started discussions with Bernardo Silva and his entourage. The name of the Portuguese international would even be more and more present in the corridors of Camp Nou.
Despite his big past season, Silva still wants to leave the Cityzens and would dream of joining the Blaugranas. It remains to convince Manchester City, which does not currently wish to part with it. The former Monegasque could make up for the departure of Frenkie de Jong. If Joan Laporta has announced that he wants to keep him, the Dutch international should agree to a big drop in salary. According PictureDe Jong would be on the shelves of Chelsea to replace N’Golo Kanté if he does not want to extend with the Blues.
According The Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus would be under the spell of Anthony Martial. After trying to get him on loan in January, Juve could try again for the French international. However, after his very good preparation, the player could be retained by Manchester United, especially in the event of the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to Fabrizio Romanothe Old Lady would also think of Memphis Depay, Alvaro Morata and Timo Werner.
According Picture, Timo Werner would like to find RB Leipzig at all costs, even if it means cutting his salary in half. Not retained by Chelsea, the German international would be desired by his former club who would like to negotiate a loan with an option to buy.
After missing Jules Koundé, Chelsea continue to prospect among the French to strengthen their central defense. According Picture, the Blues would have in the viewfinder Wesley Fofana, Benjamin Pavard and Presnel Kimpembe. The first named seems to be the priority but Leicester would not like to sell the international hopeful who extended last March.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Lombards could return to the charge for Hakim Ziyech. Chelsea are reportedly asking just over €10m for the Moroccan international.
According The Team, OM’s priority in the much sought-after position of defensive midfielder would remain Jordan Veretout. The French international will be pushed out in the event of the official arrival of Georginio Wijnaldum at Roma, but the asking price, between 10 and 15 million euros, would cool Marseille’s enthusiasm. Pablo Longoria would have activated backup alternatives.
Among these, Marseille could turn to Seko Fofana. Despite the more expensive price than that of the former Nantes player, the file leading to the Ivorian international would be seen optimistically in the Marseille city, in particular thanks to the good relations between Marseillais and Lensois, according to Provence. However, it is difficult to see the talented midfielder arrive in Provence without a sale on the OM side.

Bamba Dieng is pushed out and estimated at around 16 million euros by OM. Freiburg would have offered 8 million and English clubs would be interested. The Senegalese international, pained by the situation, still wants to win his place in Marseille.

The 23-year-old is set to be loaned out with a €20m option to buy and is expected to undergo his medical this weekend, according to Fabrizio Romano.
According The Team, Rennes also wants to strengthen now in attack and would have made Arnaud Kalimuendo its priority. The Bretons would even be inclined to offer the 25 or 30 million euros requested by PSG. It remains to be seen whether the French international hopeful will agree to join Brittany while Leeds and Nice are also interested.
Besides Kasper Schmeichel, Nice are targeting another Premier League player. After refusing to pay the option to buy Jordan Amavi, the Aiglons would like to buy Alex Telles, according to the Manchester Evening News. Third in the hierarchy behind Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia, the Brazilian international should leave the Red Devils this summer.
According The Team, FC Nantes would be interested in Christian Kouamé. The FCN should negotiate a loan with option to buy for the 24-year-old Ivorian international striker loaned last year by Fiorentina to Anderlecht where he scored 13 goals and provided 10 assists.
However, according to 20 minutesAntoine Kombouaré’s priority would rather be the Korean international from Bordeaux, Ui-Jo Hwang.
As expected, Olympique de Marseille has formalized the loan without option to buy Nuno Tavares from Arsenal. The 22-year-old Portuguese international left-back was trained at Sporting Portugal then at Benfica before joining the Gunners last year for 8 million euros.
