The transfer window might be closed around Europe, but teams are looking ahead to the summer and there’s plenty of gossip swirling. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings, goings and, of course, done deals!
TOP STORY: PSG eye Silva, Dembele in revamp
Paris Saint-Germain want to sign Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva and Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele in the summer, according to Diario Sport.
This comes with Les Parisiens wanting to make a big statement in the transfer window after being eliminated last week from the Champions League by Bayern Munich.
Silva wants to leave City in the summer and had been linked with Barca, but the Blaugrana are finding it almost impossible to complete a deal that is likely to be valued at around €65 million.
The 28-year-old is reluctant to move to Paris, but could accept if there is no other option. PSG could persuade him with a large financial offer as director of football Luis Campos also has a positive relationship with Silva’s agent Jorge Mendes.
PSG ruled out Dembele last summer as he eventually signed a contract to stay at Camp Nou, but could be set to move this summer if Neymar joins another club. The Brazilian’s future at PSG is uncertain after having season-ending surgery on his ankle last week.
It is said that Kylian Mbappe would welcome the signing of his fellow France teammate Dembele. The winger’s current contract could encourage a move, as it only has one year left and contains a €50m release clause.
The Blaugrana want to negotiate a new deal, but while there is positivity from both parties, the economics could prove an issue — if Dembele doesn’t renew, Barca could consider letting him leave.
