Pépé stock rising

Barcelona are interested in Nicolas Pépé, but it’s going to cost a good amount to capture the Lille attacker. It’s become even more complicated after his huge performance in their resounding triumph over Paris Saint-Germain. Bayern Munich are considered the team best positioned to sign him, but Barça are in the mix as well, according to Diario SPORT.

Barcelona want Rashford

This one comes from The Daily Mirror, so reader beware. But reports in England say Barça would spend over 100 million euros to bring Marcus Rashford to the Camp Nou. This comes as Barcelona are hours away from facing Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League.

Madrid want Grimaldo and Neymar

Two ex Barcelona players are in Real Madrid’s sights, according to rumor. Los blancos are in for a huge renovation this summer, and it’s practically an open secret at this point that they want Neymar, he who left Barça for PSG. LaSexta reports that Madrid see Ney as their #1 priority this summer. Meanwhile, since we’re discussing rumors from British tabloids, The Sun writes that Benfica’s Álex Grimaldo, who was brought up in the Barcelona academy, is a possibility for Madrid as well. Be wary of transfer rumors from British tabloids, but that’s the gossip for today.
