Latest Football Transfer News And Rumours For Saturday, 18th May, 2019


Latest football transfer news

Clubs and teams across and beyond Europe have started business as the summer transfer window gets fully underway.

The transfer season is usually a time of departure and arrivals for players, coaches as well as other team officials.

Naija News presents to you a compilation of the latest rumours and confirmed transfer gists.

Conte the early favourite to replace Allegri at Juventus

Former Juventus boss Antonio Conte has emerged as the favourite to replace Massimiliano Allegri at the club, according to Bleacher Report.

The Serie A champions confirmed earlier today that 51-year-old Allegri will leave the club at the end of the current campaign.

Conte spent three years in charge of Juventus before taking the reigns of the Italian national team in 2014, and won the Serie A title each season in Turin.

Man Utd and Real Madrid swap deal

Manchester United and Real Madrid could effectively trade Paul Pogba for Gareth Bale this summer, says Spanish football guru Paul Breen-Turner.

“I think there’s a little bit of poker going on and I think Gareth Bale will leave Real Madrid,” Breen-Turner told talkSPORT.

“I don’t think he’s going to play for them next season, and I’m pretty certain he will be in the Premier League, and it may even be somewhere like Manchester United.

“Manchester United are going to let Pogba go, that’s probably going to be £150million, there or thereabouts, to Real Madrid.”

Next Boro boss

Middlesbrough are considering rivalling West Brom for Lincoln boss Danny Cowley.

Boro have Cowley on their list as they start their search for Tony Pulis’ replacement, PA claim.

The Baggies are also keen on the Imps manager, who will cost £500,000 to release from his contract at Sincil Bank.

Boro chairman Steve Gibson is looking in a different direction in the hunt for a new manager and is considering a series of younger, ambitious candidates to take on a long-term project.

Mexico star Ochoa wants Standard exit

Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has announced he desires a move away from Standard Liege this summer, seeking a higher level of competition.

The 33-year-old Ochoa has spent the last two seasons with the Belgian first division club, starting 77 league games over that span.

However, Ochoa has declared his desire to move on from the club and believes his exit will happen this summer.

Salomon Rondon to Wolves

Wolves are looking to sign Salomon Rondon.

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who claim Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have entered negotiations with West Brom to bring the 29-year-old to Molineux.

Rondon, who scored 11 Premier League goals while on loan at Newcastle this year, has a £16.5million buy-out clause in his contract.

The Toon have yet to make a formal offer though it’s claimed they were hoping to use Dwight Gayle as a makeweight – but the Baggies just want cash.
