The summer window is closed, but that’s done little to slow a frenzied rumor mill fueled by missed opportunities and future targets. With the January period fast approaching, here’s a look at what’s hot in transfer talk.
Messi, Haaland, Grealish headline City’s shopping list
Manchester City‘s name was chucked around the spinning rumor mill last week like a gerbil at happy hour. Tom Gott of 90min alleges they’re shopping for a new striker to replace Sergio Aguero, with Borussia Dortmund‘s Erling Haaland and Inter Milan‘s Lautaro Martinez topping the list. But wait, it gets better.
The Daily Star says Aston Villa‘s Jack Grealish and Douglas Luiz – who was at City and has a €28M buyback – are part of Pep Guardiola’s plans. The Spanish manager is also focusing on Lionel Messi, who Mundo Deportivo claims is being “seduced” by the idea of a stop at City before finishing up with New York City FC – who play on a baseball diamond.
