Bayern will sell Thiago if the price is right

Today’s rumors start with Thiago who is making all kind of headlines today. Over at AS they reckon that Bayern Munich will sell the midfielder if the right offer is received.

The German giants aren’t willing to slap a price tag on the Spain international but are rather waiting for clubs to make an offer.

If the right deal comes along they are prepared to sell, and Thiago has realised that this might be the right time to return home.

Barcelona not interested in Golovin

Russia’s Aleksandr Golovin was one of the stars of the World Cup, and his performances saw him linked with a number of teams including Barcelona.

However, Ernesto Valverde’s side are not interested in the Russia international as they know he wants to play for Chelsea, so say Marca.

The club were also unsure as to how well he would fit into life in Spain particularly as he only speaks Russia.

Meunier emerges as a Barca target

Thomas Meunier enjoyed a fine World Cup with Belgium which has prompted plenty of interest and Barcelona are also keen on him, reckon Sport.

The Belgian is considering his future at PSG and wants to know if he will feature regularly next season.

Barcelona are monitoring the situation as they could look to bring him in to compete with Nelson Semedo for the right-back slot with Sergi Roberto moving into midfield.

Barcelona agree personal terms with Rabiot

PSG’s Adrien Rabiot remains a target and Barcelona have now agreed personal terms with the midfielder, according to Football Espana.

There’s a suggestion PSG would be willing to let Rabiot leave in a deal worth €40m. Rabiot’s deal expires next summer so if he does not extend he can walk away for free in 2019.

Barca to offer Chelsea €50m for Willian

And finally today we end with yet another update on Willian’s future with Barcelona once again linked.

Reports have suggested Barcelona have already made bids for Willian, but according to Mundo Deportivo (via Sport Witness) they are ready to offer €50m for the Brazilian.

Agent Kia Joorabchian is believed to be in London and in talks for Willian on behalf of Barcelona.
