The recent deterioration of Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe’s relationship in the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room has opened the door for Lionel Messi to return to Camp Nou, as the Frenchman is reportedly trying to offload those two for achieving the highest level of attention at the club level.
Although the next transfer phase is still closed until the beginning of next year, clubs like Barcelona, Arsenal, and others are now stacking up cash for a massive investment in the upcoming January Transfer window.
How might the January Transfer window help Barcelona and Arsenal?
The love affair between Barcelona and Lionel Messi will never see the conclusion as the Argentine skipper never downed any possibility of his return to his former club and the current Blaugrana manager, Xavi, is also interested in bringing in the Seven-time Ballon D’or winner in the near future and who knows, it could be in the coming January Transfer window!
On another twist, Premier League giant Arsenal might revive their pursuit of Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic during the next transfer window but the 22-year-old passed up a chance to play for the Gunners and signed with Juventus instead earlier this year. In addition, Fabio Miretti, a young midfielder on his club, has also caught the attention of Arsenal.
According to Swiss international Denis Zakaria, his agency was approached by Liverpool about a possible transfer to Anfield on the transfer deadline in early September but the Swiss player ended up on loan with Chelsea, while his old colleague at Juventus, Arthur Melo, joined the Reds from the Bianconeri.
Since there is a provision in his loan contract that, if activated, would require Atletico Madrid to pay Barcelona €35 million, Antoine Griezmann is incredibly annoyed with his limited playing time at Atletico Madrid. Barcelona, in an effort to put an end to this drawn-out saga, is attempting to sell him to Atletico Madrid for €22 million instead.
Meanwhile, Juventus is prepared to make their own offer for Griezmann and is prepared to compete with the other suitors. Christian Pulisic, an American winger for Chelsea, and Marco Asensio, a Spanish striker for Real Madrid who is out of contract, are both players of interest.
Newcastle United might make a bid for the struggling Premier League club Leicester City forward James Maddison in the next January transfer window to bolster the squad depth and to bring more attacking options in front of their opponents.
In the Bundesliga, reigning champion Bayern Munich is monitoring the situation closely on Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez, who may be leaving Inter Milan to help pay a permanent move for Romelu Lukaku as the Nerazzuri are now looking to complete the transfer of Romelu Lukaku within the next few months.
