The big names dominating headlines in Europe as the transfer window prepares to kick into overdrive are Cristiano Ronaldo and Matthijs de Ligt. De Ligt, a Juventus defender, was in negotiations with Chelsea before deciding to sign with Bayern Munich, while Ronaldo might still be trying to leave Manchester United. The transfer market will continue to heat up across Europe as the temperature in the UK rises. De Ligt was observed wearing a Bayern Munich uniform. Following his €80 million transfer from Juventus on a five-year contract, Matthijs de Ligt has been seen in the Bayern Munich training uniform. After three years in Turin, the 22-year-old Dutch center back is prepared for the next phase of his career and is even willing to take a slight pay cut. He will finish his medical tests this week, according to TMW, and Bayern has agreed to pay Juventus €70 million in a fixed cost plus about €10 million in add-ons. Ronaldo’s newest Despite United’s continued insistence that Ronaldo is not for sale, Atletico Madrid of Spain has been predicted to enter the race. Atletico Madrid is a competitor of Ronaldo’s old club Real Madrid, where he amassed 450 goals and 15 awards over nine years, including two La Liga championships and four Champions League wins. Despite some sort of communication having taken place, Marca says there is little prospect of a deal coming to fruition this summer.

New Barca transfer strategies The summer transfer window will now be used to find a new defense, according to Barcelona president Joan Laporta. Andreas Christensen was already acquired by Barcelona on a free transfer from Chelsea, but the majority of their activity has been at the opposite end of the field. Midfielder Franck Kessie and forwards Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski have joined, while Ousmane Dembele has signed a new contract to stay at Camp Nou as well. Barcelona’s offense is done, according to Laporta, and they will now focus on bolstering their defense over the coming weeks. Laporta said to TUDN, “Now is the moment to work on the defense.” “We are working toward my objective of having Barça once again be a global icon. We are achieving it, but we have to work even more. Football does not wait. You have to do it now.” Read More
