Frenkie de Jong, Marc Andre Ter-Stegen and Sergino Dest will go on sale to raise transfer funds and allow for a much needed rebuild.

Phillips snubs Man Utd’s move in favor of Liverpool – Paper Round


Paper Round’s point of view: Reconstruction is exactly what is needed in Barcelona. The club have just lost one of the best players to ever play and their current financial situation is dire. Xavi’s job now is to focus only on how he’ll bring Barca back among the top Europeans. De Jong, Ter Stegen and Dest will bring huge transfer fees to the club and allow the club to make some moves in the transfer market. The focus should be more on bringing in young players from the club’s prestigious academy, La Masia. Cancel the next two seasons and just build a new dynasty without any pressure from the board or supporters.

Rangnick considering Man Utd transfer activities in January

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is already starting to plan for the January transfer window, although he has only been in the post for just over a week. The German coach assesses his new squad and the Mirror reveal decisions are starting to be made. Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani could all leave in the winter window due to their ongoing contract sagas. Rangnick is reportedly given £ 100million and he plans to strengthen his midfield. RB Leipzig’s Amadou Haidara and Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong top his list. United are also considering Chelsea pair Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger if they are available to join the Blues’ domestic rivals.

Paper Round’s point of view: Manchester United have appointed Rangnick in the interim role, but he will have a much bigger role when he takes up his consultant role at the club at the end of the season. He will be responsible for shaping the future of the club. Now he has six months to work with the team and see who will play a role in that future. Cavani and Lingard are scheduled to leave, but Pogba’s future needs to be resolved as soon as possible. Haidara and De Jong are two names that come up over and over again when discussing Manchester United’s goals, so we might see Pogba’s exit open up a place in midfield. In any case, important decisions should be made by Rangnick and they should be taken as soon as possible.

“Today a new phase must begin” – Xavi after Barcelona exit to Champions League

Rudiger will become one of the highest paid defenders in the world

Antonio Rudiger is set to become one of the highest paid defenders in the world, with the Mail reporting that the Chelsea center-back will quadruple his salary if he leaves Stamford Bridge. Rudiger is quickly approaching the expiration date of his contract at Chelsea, but the two sides have failed to agree on an extension. The west London club have offered Rudiger a contract worth £ 140,000 per week, but the Germany international will be offered a massive £ 400,000 per week contract from top European clubs. Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain, Bayern Munich and Juventus are all interested in signing Rudiger on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Paper Round’s point of view: £ 400,000 a week is ridiculous money. The “salary” will likely include registration fees and bonuses, but it’s still a lot of money. Rudiger has been one of the best central defenders in world football since Thomas Tuchel took over from Stamford Bridge, so the salary increase Chelsea are offering him may seem slightly disrespectful. The fact that he can move to another big European club and earn four times what he currently earns pretty much his decision. This will give him a new challenge and a huge bank balance. It’s hard to pass up that kind of money, but Chelsea could have come up with a fairer contract extension in the first place and avoided this situation.

Wijnaldum ‘open’ to return to Premier League

Georginio Wijnaldum could make a shock return to the Premier League, just six months after leaving Liverpool for Paris Saint-Germain. The 31-year-old struggled with the start of his career in the French capital and admitted he was “not completely satisfied” with his current situation. Wijnaldum has failed to retain a starting role in the PSG squad and could be ready to join a Premier League club on loan in the winter transfer window. Arsenal are said to be one of the clubs interested in recruiting the Dutch midfielder, but PSG are reportedly unwilling to let Wijnaldum leave in January.

Paper Round’s point of view: It would be a strange moment to leave PSG, especially after joining the squad this summer. Wijnaldum just needs to keep working hard and try to break into the starting XI. If this is a problem with the manager, he shouldn’t care too much. Mauricio Pochettino’s future in the French capital is uncertain, so a new manager could be appointed, and they could really like Wijnaldum. Now is not the time to pack your bags and join a struggling Arsenal side. It won’t do your career too much good.
