Players tells Barcelona to sign Thiago

Today’s rumors kick off with news that Barcelona’s players have told the club they need to bring Thiago back to the Camp Nou.

There has been speculation from Germany that Bayern are ready to sell the midfielder, and some of the senior Barca players have told Josep Maria Bartomeu to snap him up.

According to Sport, Barca players think he could fill an important role next season. Bayern wants €80m for Thiago, but Barcelona will try to get that down to €50m.

Jurgen Klopp really, really wants Dembele

The Ousmane Dembele rumors are simply refusing to go away, and Mundo Deportivo reckon that Jurgen Klopp is determined to land the Frenchman.

The Liverpool boss wants to talk to Dembele, and his mum, personally to try and secure a deal and explain his “project” at Liverpool.

Dembele apparently only wants a permanent move, not a loan, and Liverpool may only be able to afford that if they sold star man Mohamed Salah. They also need to sign a goalkeeper this summer which will take up a fair chunk of their budget.

Lazio keen on Andre Gomes

Another day and another Andre Gomes rumor and this time Lazio are the club linked with the Portuguese midfielder.

Mundo Deportivo reckon the Serie A side could move for Gomes if they sell Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer.

Milinkovic-Savic is a player in great demand and could be on his way with both Juventus and Manchester United linked.

Napoli want Vidal?

Aleix Vidal may be a wanted man too as Napoli have reportedly joined Sevilla in the hunt for his signature.

Il Messagero reckon that new coach Carlo Ancelotti quite fancies bringing the Barcelona star to Italy this summer.

Inter and Roma are also interested in Vidal and it looks as though he may have his pick of clubs to move to.
