The TOP 5 files of the day not to be missed
1. Messi in extra time
When his contract expires next June, striker Lionel Messi (35) has an agreement in principle with Paris Saint-Germain to extend his lease for a further year. Back this Tuesday in France after his crowning with Argentina at the 2022 World Cup, the former Barcelona player could quickly make this decision official, according to information from RMC radio.
Indeed, with the very positive evolution of the discussions between the two sides, the Argentine international could sign a new lease with PSG by the end of January. Despite competition from FC Barcelona and Inter Miami, Paris should therefore be able to retain Messi, who has excelled in the first part of the 2022-2023 season.
2. Neymar still on the market
Encore repeat? After trying to get rid of Neymar (30) last summer, Paris Saint-Germain intend to put the Brazilian back on the market during the next summer transfer window, according to information from Sport. The main objective would be to reduce the wage bill of the team, which will be built around Kylian Mbapp and Lionel Messi, who should soon extend his contract.
Furthermore, on the Parisian side, it is estimated that this is the last opportunity to collect through a transfer of the attacking midfielder. Last year PSG asked for 150 million euros. This summer he should lower his claims and repay 100 million euros. Because salary is also a problem, while Neymar receives around 40 million euros net a year. What clubs could offer him? Newcastle perhaps, but the Magpies already tried their luck last summer before taking a break from the player and his entourage.
For his part, Neymar wants to stay in Paris, where he is under contract until 2027.
3. Guendouzi is gone to stay
As we told you last Thursday, midfielder Matto Guendouzi (23), asked for this winter transfer window, risked leaving Olympique de Marseille in case of a good offer. But according to information from the newspaper L’Equipe, the French international should continue his adventure with the reigning French vice-champion.
In fact, OM has not yet received any concrete offer for the former Lorient player. And above all, the president of OM Pablo Longoria and the coach Igor Tudor have closed the door on the farewell of Guendouzi, undisputed owner under the colors of Marseille.
4. Newcastle deny Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo (37) reportedly included a clause in his €200m-per-season contract with Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nassr that would allow him to be loaned to Saudi sovereign wealth fund Newcastle if they qualified the Magpies in the Champions League. Fake news, replies the coach of the Toons.
The rumor of this famous clause from Newcastle, spread by the Madrid newspaper Marca, was in fact denied by Eddie Howe after the draw against Arsenal (0-0) on Tuesday. We wish Cristiano Ronaldo all the best in his new adventure but, from our point of view, there is no truth in this matter. , replied the English technician. A priori, CR7 has therefore really said goodbye to top-level football…
5. Aouar has an offer from Betis
Following the end of his contract with Olympique Lyonnais next June, Houssem Aouar (24) is free to discuss with the club of his choice. Betis, in the ranks for many months, has sent a proposal to the French midfielder.
According to Revelo, the Andalusian formation, which wants to reconstitute the Lyon duo with Nabil Fekir, has transmitted a five-year lease, i.e. until June 2028, with a key annual net salary of 2.5 million euros. Betis agrees to pay a €5m signing bonus to convince the Azzurri to cross the Pyrenees. In total, Aouar can claim a contract worth 17.5 million euros with the Verdiblancos.
We remind you that Benfica, Roma and Nottingham Forest are closely following the Blues.
