I’ve no details about the state of affairs surrounding Frenkie de Jong up to now.

Deco was clear two days in the past when he mentioned that Barcelona don’t wish to promote prime gamers.
Nevertheless, Monetary Honest Play may dictate their actions available in the market and this can be clarified in the summertime, not now.
Tough time for Chiesa however he’s valued by Juve

Ivan Toney won’t proceed at Brentford after the summer season. That is the expectation with one 12 months left on his contract.
Forward of the January switch window, between October and November, Brentford had been trying to ask for £60m-£65m for Ivan Toney. Then what occurred?
Available on the market, there have been no different strikers out there. Osimhen wasn’t out there. Sesko wasn’t out there and plenty of others weren’t out there, and they also determined to place a special price ticket on Ivan Toney, one thing round £100m.
Nobody made a proposal as a result of they didn’t wish to spend that cash for a participant who was out of contract in summer season 25. So now, in the summertime switch window because the supervisor Thomas Frank talked about, the thought is for Ivan Toney to affix a prime membership.
He’s had a brand new agent since August so let’s see what’s going to occur at Arsenal. They by no means made a proposal in January however he’s at all times been one of many gamers appreciated by the membership.
