Chelsea agree €115m fee with Inter for Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea agree €115m fee with Inter for Romelu Lukaku

Sports Betting Odds - Chelsea have agreed a €115m fee with Inter for the transfer of Romelu Lukaku, Mysports99 understands. The Belgium international had asked Inter to be omitted from their matchday squad for a friendly against Parma on Sunday in order to seal a return to Stamford Bridge. A reunion now looks to be on the horizon, as 90min can reveal that Lukaku has agreed terms on a deal that will make him the club's highest paid player. The €115m fee agree agreed with Inter equates to around £97.5m - meaning it is just shy of the British record £100m that Manchester City paid for Jack Grealish on Thursday. A source close to the Lukaku camp has confirmed that he's excited to return to west London, remarking: "He is so excited the deal is done, he knows Roman Abramovich has push...
Barcelona confirm Lionel Messi will not be signing a new deal

Barcelona confirm Lionel Messi will not be signing a new deal

Online Betting Sites - Barcelona have confirmed that Lionel Messi will not be signing a new deal at the club due to their ongoing financial concerns. The Argentine superstar has been in talks with Barça for the majority of the summer, with the club hoping to tie him down to a new deal that would keep him at Camp Nou for the remainder of his career. Despite Messi currently being a free agent after his deal with the La Liga giants expired earlier this summer, Joan Laporta has continued to insist that an agreement would be reached and even went as far as to suggest an announcement could be made in the next few days. However, reports coming out of Spain on Thursday night suggested that talks had hit the buffers after club chiefs were unable to reach a compromise with Messi’s represe...

Real Madrid: Toni Kroos to miss start of season through injury

Online Betting Malaysia - Real Madrid have confirmed that Toni Kroos will undergo treatment for a pubic bone issue, meaning the midfielder could be on the sidelines for several weeks. Real Madrid's injury problems are mounting in pre-season with Toni Kroos joining Ferland Mendy, Dani Carvajal and Eden Hazard in the treatment room ahead of the Liga season kick-off on 13 August. In the case of the German midfielder, a diagnosis of pubalgia - a groin injury that tends to have a slow recovery process - has caused concern among Madrid's medical staff. While it is uncertain how long Kroos will be out of action he is expected to miss the first few league games of the 2021-22 season and could be unavailable until late September giving Carlo Ancelotti a fresh headache as the Italian prepar...

He returned from holiday on Monday and held discussions with sporting director Johan Lange over his future, making it clear that he favoured a move to the champions. Villa are understood to have offered him an improved contract to stay, but Grealish turned them down. Although his departure is a bitter blow, Dean Smi...

Raphael Varane to undergo Man Utd medical on Wednesday

Raphael Varane to undergo Man Utd medical on Wednesday

Sports Betting Odds - Raphael Varane is set to undergo a medical at Manchester United and could be announced as their latest signing within days. The Real Madrid defender has been United's main transfer target since they ended their long-running pursuit of Jadon Sancho, but it doesn't look as if this saga will drag on for anywhere near as long. The 28-year-old is said to have his heart set on heading to the Premier League side, where he will partner Harry Maguire in the middle of a fearsome looking back line. Real, meanwhile, haven't put up too much of a fight - Varane wants to leave, and is out of contract in a year's time. Negotiations have been steadily progressing for a couple of weeks now, and it was reported on Sunday that a deal could be announced 'within hours.' That did...

Chelsea & Liverpool ‘make contact’ with agent of Saul Niguez

Sports Betting Odds - Chelsea and Liverpool have both reached out to the agent of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez to discuss a potential transfer. Saul will be allowed to leave Atletico this summer after tumbling down the pecking order under Diego Simeone, and he has already been replaced in the squad by Argentine playmaker Rodrigo de Paul. He had been expected to join Barcelona in a trade for Antoine Griezmann, but talks over that deal have broken down and Atletico are now looking at the idea of sending Saul to England, where he has plenty of suitors. According to Marca, both Chelsea and Liverpool are wrestling to get to the front of the queue for his signature and have met with the 26-year-old's representatives to discuss what would be needed to sign him. Chelsea's i...

Paul Pogba rejects new Man Utd contract offer – likely to leave this summer

Online Betting Malaysia - Manchester United will look to offload Paul Pogba this summer after the Frenchman rejected the offer of a new contract worth £50m. Pogba's future has never been far from the back pages since re-joining United in 2016, with Real Madrid continually expressing their interest in the midfielder. With just one year remaining on his current deal, United had hoped to tie Pogba down to a lucrative new contract to avoid the risk of losing him for free next year - but the Mirror report that they'll look to sell him this summer after he rejected their latest £350,000-per-week offer. News of Paul Pogba’s possible availability has alerted the attention of Paris Saint-Germain, with the Ligue 1 outfit ready to table a £45m bid - £5m short of the Premier League outfit's...
Eden Hazard ‘offered back’ to Chelsea by Real Madrid

Eden Hazard ‘offered back’ to Chelsea by Real Madrid

Sports Betting Odds - Real Madrid are looking to sell winger Eden Hazard this summer and intermediaries working on behalf of the club have reached out to Chelsea to try send the Belgian back to Stamford Bridge. Hazard was a fan favourite at Chelsea between 2012 and 2019, but his blockbuster move to Real, which is worth up to £150m, has not gone according to plan. Injuries have prevented him from producing his best form and Los Blancos are now keen to cut their losses and get rid. The problem for Real is there are few sides willing to pay a sizeable transfer fee or meet Eden Hazard's wages, so club officials are left with very few options when it comes to offloading the 30-year-old. Their latest tactic, according to AS, is to reach out to Chelsea to gauge their interest in bringi...

Real Madrid not looking to offload Vinicius Junior

Online Betting Sites - Real Madrid have no plans to sell Brazilian winger Vinicius Junior this summer, despite suggestions he had been offered to Manchester United. Los Blancos are on a fundraising mission as they look to generate the funds needed to sign Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe - though that move is more likely next summer - with the likes of Raphael Varane, Eden Hazard and Isco all thought to be on the market for the right price. United are looking to snap up Varane, and recently, it was suggested by The Mirror that Real had thrown around the idea of Vinicius making the move to Old Trafford as well, with the Spanish side claimed to be hopeful of bringing in a big fee for the 21-year-old. However, that has since been debunked by a number of sources. Firstly, we...
