After Euro 2020, the focus of the football world shifts to the transfer market. Lionel Messi has allegedly agreed to a new contract with Barcelona (Getty).
The major news is that Lionel Messi has apparently signed to a new five-year contract with Barcelona, which will reportedly see the captain take a significant wage reduction due to the club’s financial woes.
Antoine Griezmann, a Barcelona teammate, could be on his way out, possibly to Atletico Madrid in a swap deal for Saul Niguez.
The France international was linked with a loan move to Chelsea earlier this week, but a return to Atletico looks much more likely at this time.
Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho’s long-awaited move to Manchester United might be finalised at any time, with the talented England winger having completed his physical just a few days ago, and Three Lions teammate Kieran Trippier’s favoured destination appears to be the Old Trafford club.
The Atletico Madrid defender is apparently eager to return to the Premier League.
In other news, according to The Telegraph, Leicester are hopeful of retaining midfielder Youri Tielemans, while the Daily Mirror claims Tammy Abraham might be used by Chelsea to enhance a trade deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
