Rabiot to the Premier League

Rumors say that Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot will not go to Barcelona as previously thought. Instead, he may be heading to the English Premier League. Paris United says that he and his agent and mother, Véronique, are in talks with Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Liverpool. Reports that Véronique had been sacked as the player’s agent have been labeled false. His demands are similar to the ones he had for signing with Barça: 10 million euros a year as salary plus a signing bonus between 10 and 15 million. Bayern Munich is out of the running according to the report, while as far as Barcelona, only Éric Abidal is still advocating to sign the player.

Félix price increase

Benfica know they have a star in the making in João Félix. That’s why, according to Portugal’s Récord, Benfica have upped his release clause from 120 million euro to 200 million. Barcelona’s scouts are closely following the situation according to Mundo Deportivo. The young forward is also wanted by PSG and Bayern. His agent is Jorge Mendes.

Pépé in the sights

Lille coach Christophe Galtier has recognized that keeping Nicolas Pépé for much longer will be very difficult, as many of Europe’s top clubs circle ready to pounce. Once again, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and PSG are in the hunt for the young attacker, this time with Bayern in pole position at the moment, according to Diario SPORT.
