PSG and Tuchel interested in Dembele

Today’s rumors start with our very own Ousmane Dembele and news that Paris Saint-Germain remain interested in him, according to Mundo Deportivo.

New manager Thomas Tuchel knows Dembele well from their time together at Borussia Dortmund and his dismissal was one of the reasons the Frenchman wanted to leave the club.

The potential arrival of Antoine Griezmann could make life difficult for Dembele at Barcelona, and if the club receive an offer in the region of €115-120 million, they will consider it.

Man Utd & Chelsea want Alba

No sooner had Jordi Alba’s agent been complaining about the lack of a contract renewal than the rumors about clubs interested in his signature appeared. What a coincidence.

Anyway, Sport reckon that both Manchester United and Chelsea want a left-back this summer and would be happy to bring Alba to England.

Both clubs have always liked the Barca star but have been even more impressed this season with his attacking contribution.

Cillessen to Liverpool?

Back to Mundo Deportivo and they bring news that Jasper Cillessen could be an option for Liverpool this summer.

The Reds have long needed a new goalkeeper and that feeling was only highlighted after Loris Karius’ horror-show in the Champions League final.

Barcelona don’t want to sell but could be tempted with a bid of €60m. Liverpool would prefer Jan Oblak or Alisson, but Cillessen would be a cheaper and more viable alternative.

Real Madrid want Eriksen to replace Modric

Over at Marca and they reckon that Real Madrid are also interested in Christian Eriksen and see him as the eventual successor to Luka Modric at the Bernabeu.

The report reckons that Eriksen is “open to options” but then goes on to talk about how it would be “basically impossible this summer” to prise the midfielder away from Spurs.

All a bit confusing really, but the gist is that Eriksen is seen as the perfect replacement for Modric at some point in the future, possibly.

Celta want Denis on loan

Despite his best efforts Denis Suarez continues to find himself in the rumor pages and this time the talk is of a loan move to Celta Vigo.

Barcelona don’t really want to sell him, he doesn’t really want to go, but he does want to play more so a loan move to a former club could be an option, so say Sport.

Real Betis are also pretty keen but Denis’ representatives will talk to Barcelona before discussing his future with any other clubs.

Vidal heading to Sevilla

And finally today we end with news that Aleix Vidal could be departing for Sevilla this summer.

According to Marca, Sevilla agreed a deal for Vidal back in January but then didn’t fancy paying Barcelona’s price of €12 million plus €3m in potential add-ons.

The club remain interested though so it sounds as though a move might be on if both teams can agree a price.
