The Transfer Market is getting heated as deals swing from left to right. Here are some top transfer headlines for today June 19th, 2022.
Mirror – Mo Salah to leave Liverpool
The Merseysiders are braced for the prospect of the brilliant Egyptian forward carrying out his threat to walk out of the club for nothing in 12 months after refusing to meet his demands for a double-his-money £400,000-a-week deal.
Senior sources at the club have confirmed they have gone as far as they can in negotiations with Salah’s camp without smashing their wage structure. And after selling Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich in a deal potentially worth £35million to break another contract stalemate, the Reds currently do not envisage the 30-year-old now initiating a compromise.
Express – Chelsea eyeing Raheem Sterling
Chelsea are ‘really exploring’ the opportunity to sign Raheem Sterling this summer, according to reports. However, the Blues are waiting for Manchester City to put a price tag on the England international.
Sterling is out of contract at the Etihad at the end of next season. He was not always a regular in the Premier League last term, with just 23 of his 30 appearances coming as a starter.
The Sun – Dembele demands assurance from Tuchel
Dembele has serious ambitions to win the Premier League title and Champions League. But he wants assurances from Tuchel that he will be a Chelsea starter and not subject to strict squad rotation.
Dembele completed 90 minutes on only nine occasions last season but still finished it with 13 assists — the most in LaLiga. The 27-cap France star has grown frustrated at the Nou Camp having started just 41 per cent of games he has played in the last three seasons.
The Mirror – Ten Hag reveals dream midfielders
Erik ten Hag’s vision for Manchester United will be in tatters if the club fails to land Frenkie de Jong and Christian Eriksen.
United’s new boss has told Old Trafford bosses that the midfield duo will be the focal point of his team. And after Jurrien Timber told his former Ajax boss that he won’t be moving to Manchester before the World Cup and Liverpool beat the Reds to the signature of Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez, it is clear that the Dutchman’s plan is not progressing smoothly.
