Ibrahim Sangare to Chelsea or Manchester United on June 8
Ibrahim Sangare of PSV Eindhoven has been connected with Manchester United and Chelsea, according to sources. The feisty midfielder hopes to play in the Premier League next season.
Sangare, 24, has a $44 million release clause and three years left on his PSV contract, having moved from then-Ligue 2 side Toulouse at the start of 2020-21 season.
Last season, he made 95 tackles and 74 interceptions in the Eredivisie, scoring three goals while passing the ball at roughly 87 percent (NM).
Chelsea are still interested in USMNT goalkeeper Gabriel ‘Gaga’ Slonina as of June 1st.
Chelsea are still interested in signing USMNT goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina, according to Goal.com. The 18-year-old Chicago Fire starter recently declined a call-up to the Poland national team to represent the USMNT. Real Madrid reportedly also want to sign Slonina, who is one of the top young goalkeeping prospects on the planet. Is this a wise decision for the young American? He’d almost certainly go out on loan and getting regular minutes is key as he wouldn’t be close to challenging Edouard Mendy for the starting spot.
Romelu Lukaku might return to Inter Milan on loan on May 31.
Inter Milan’s board will meet with Lukaku’s representatives today, according to Fabrizio Romano. He claims that Lukaku ‘dreams of a return’ to Inter but nothing has been discussed with Chelsea. Lukaku, 29, only joined Chelsea from Inter last summer for a huge $122.6 million fee. However, after a good start to the season his form dipped massively and he scored just eight Premier League goals in 16 starts. Chelsea’s attack was their main issue all season long and Tuchel wants to revamp it this summer as Lukaku, Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic could all be on the move. It has been reported elsewhere that Lukaku could initially head back to Inter on loan. (JPW)
