Transfer news and rumours of the day: 27th June, 2016
Welcome to our daily transfer round-up. As always, Sportskeeda have compiled some of the best transfer rumours flying around today. Manchester United are reportedly closing in on deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Liverpool are not far behind too, as the signing of another Southampton star could be announced soon.
Leicester are also close to completing a deal for a certain Ligue 1 star, whilst Juventus are hoping to keep Pogba at the club beyond summer. We’ve got it all covered for you.
Here are the football transfer news and rumours from June 27th.
Like every summer, the future of French star Paul Pogba is a talking point this summer too. According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Pogba doesn’t want to leave Juventus, and that the Serie A club are ready to offer him wages that could see him earning more than €6m per season. Apparently, Juventus have a plan to convince Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, not to discuss any possible transfer with Manchester United or Real Madrid. We won’t be surprised if Raiola, once again, ends up throwing chairs.
Former Barcelona star Dani Alves has arrived in Turin to complete his move to Juventus. The Brazilian completed his medical examination today, and a deal was announced soon after. Tutto Mercato Web reckons the player will be presented to the media tomorrow, and Italian media seem to be quite excited about it.
According to Calciomercato, AS Roma are keen on signing Croatian star Milan Badelj, who has been repeatedly linked to Tottenham. Fiorentina have set an asking price of €9m for the midfielder.
Medhi Benatia made a €26m move to Bayern Munich in 2014, and reports suggest he could be returning to Italy this summer. Tuttosport claim Juventus are in talks with Bayern Munich to sign Benatia. Juventus, however, want to sign the Moroccan international on loan, with an option to buy, but the Bavarian side are keen on a mandatory purchase option.
