It remains to be seen which club Griezman will represent as from next summer, but it is no secret that Barcelona has nursed a long-term interest in the player.
Keylor Navas to leave Madrid for PSG?
Keylor Navas looks set to dump Real Madrid at the end of the season in favour of French giants, Paris Saint-Germain.
Reports in France suggest the Ligue 1 giants are on the hunt for a new keeper amid Gianluigi Buffon’s disappointing turnout in the Champions League.
Navas has been dropped to the bench since Thibaut Courtois’ arrival and is looking for first-team football. He could find it in the French capital.
Semedo to consider offers from other clubs
A report by Marca claims Barcelona defender, Nelson Semedo is considering leaving the club this summer amid interest from England and Italy.
The 25-year-old only joined Barca two years ago, and so far has made 44 appearances in 2018-19 but seeks more starting opportunities.
Naija News understands Premier League and Serie A clubs are interested in landing the player and are ready to offer as much as €35 million (£30m/$39m) for him.
Bayern show interest in Man City’s Sane
Bayern Munich have opened talks with Manchester City over a move for Leroy Sane, the Daily Record reports.
City may be forced to sell the German star if he does not agree to a new contract.
Sane was often left out of Pep Guardiola’s starting XI this season, and City have given Bayern permission to speak with the German’s representatives over contract terms.
City may feel that selling Sane is the best option, with the 23-year-old so far rejecting the club’s offers to extend a contract that runs out in 2021.
Atletico plotting triple raid on Porto
Atletico Madrid are closing in on signing Hector Herrera, Felipe and Alex Telles from Porto, according to ESPN FC.
Center midfielder Herrera will join on a free transfer, while Porto are holding out for €25 million (£22m/$28m) for Felipe and €40m (£35m/$45m) for Telles.
Felipe will help Atletico replace the outgoing Diego Godin at centre-back, while Telles will do the same for left-backs Lucas Hernandez and Filipe Luis.
Dortmund close in on Schulz
Borussia Dortmund are nearing the signing of left-back Nico Schulz from Hoffenheim, reports Kicker.
The 26-year-old will move for a fee of around €30 million (€26m/$34m) and will sign a contract with Dortmund through the 2023-24 season.
Schulz joins Thorgan Hazard as a summer reinforcement for Dortmund, with the Monchengladbach star also nearing a move to Signal Iduna Park.
