Angel-Gomes-Man-Utd

Angel Gomes could join Chelsea while Spurs are changing their whole defence…

 

THERE MUST BE AN ANGEL
…and he might be playing with Chelsea next season, according to the Mirror. They claim that the Blues ‘believe they are close’ to agreeing a deal with Angel Gomes, who is out of contract at the end of next month and has apparently turned down a new Manchester United contract worth £30,000 a week.

Gomes started three Europa League games last season but was restricted to just 19 minutes of Premier League action. With more young attacking players set to join this summer – Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham are all expected to sign on – Gomes clearly believes he has more chance of breaking through at Chelsea.

BARCA WANT FOYTH
Yes, that Foyth. Tottenham’s Juan Foyth is not wanted at Tottenham – he has not kicked a ball for the club in 2020  and has not been in a single Premier League or Champions League squad since being hauled off at half-time of the 2-2 draw with Norwich in December – but he might be wanted by Barcelona, according to the Mirror.

Apparently, ‘Barcelona’s interest comes with the Spanish giants ready to offload centre backs Samuel Umtiti or Jean-Clair Todibo. Should they do so Foyth is being seen as a relatively cheap replacement.’

 

ITALIAN SWAP SHOP FOR SPURS?
Tottenham might have a whole new defence by the end of the summer. Is the summer still a thing? According to Tuttomercato, Jose Mourinho will look to complete a double Serie A deal by signing Alex Sandro and Timothy Castagne from Juventus and Atalanta. Has there ever been a time when Mourinho did not want to sign Alex Sandro?

Apparently Spurs could offer Serge Aurier and a load of cash for Sandro, while there is also a suggestion that Danny Rose could be swapped for Mattia De Sciglio, who can play in either full-back positions. Having spent years trying to move north, we are not sure Rose could be tempted to Italy…

 

AND THE REST
Liverpool have joined the race along with several European giants for Red Bull Salzburg’s 19-year-old Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai…West Brom will rival Tottenham for the signing of £18m Fenerbahce and Kosovo forward Vedat Muriqi…Crystal Palace want Burnley boss Sean Dyche as their next manager.
