Denis Suárez looking for new club

Denis has not gotten the playing time he was hoping for after several seasons, so he seems intent on leaving once and for all in this transfer window, says Diario SPORT. Arsenal, Chelsea, Milan and Olympique de Marseille are keen on him, reportedly. Milan would be looking at a loan plus buy option, while Arsenal and Chelsea are said to be close to hammering out a transfer for him.

Munir free to negotiate with new team

Barcelona has been unable to agree a new contract with Munir, which means he is free in six months. That allows him the ability to start negotiating a contract with another team right away.

Barcelona set to negotiate with Rabiot and Todibo

Munir’s situation is similar to that of two French players who could be moving in the opposite direction - towards Barça. Both Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot and Tolouse’s Jean-Clair Todibo are free to negotiate their exits now as they are in the last six months of their deals as well. Mundo Deportivo writes that Rabiot had a verbal agreement with the Catalans as far as his salary and signing bonus, but his agent and mother pushed him to demand more now that the deal can be finally agreed in writing. This is something Barcelona will not acquiesce to, so we shall see if the two parties will come to a consensus. As far as Todibo, MD says Barcelona are sure that they have the situation under control and could even pay around 5 million euros to bring him right away, but there is stiff competition for the newest French centerback prospect. that
