Barcelona “ready to sell” as Chelsea plans “$207 million” trade and intense scrutiny from Liverpool expected


While Barcelona is prepared to sell a prodigy, Chelsea is planning an expensive January transfer swoop.

At the very least, there was controversy around Liverpool’s Saturday loss to Tottenham. The Reds entered the match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in excellent form. Liverpool had won seven straight games across all competitions before facing Spurs. Many anticipated Liverpool to extend its winning streak and depart London with all three points. But Spurs offered Jürgen Klopp with his toughest test since the away victory at Newcastle.

That wasn’t exactly how things worked out. In spite of Liverpool’s excellent performance against Tottenham, VAR incorrectly rejected Luis Daz’s well struck goal. If the goal had been awarded with the score still being 0-0, it may have altered the game’s course. As it transpired, the goal wasn’t awarded because there was a breakdown in communication between the on-field officials and those in charge of keeping score. Joel Matip scored a terrible own goal. Tottenham finally won the game after Liverpool had two players sent off throughout the course of the contest.

Without a doubt, Klopp will evaluate the Tottenham match and put it to rest. Then Klopp will have to concentrate on the upcoming Europa League match against Union Saint-Gilloise on Thursday night.

Chelsea can once again reopen its checkbook. Barcelona might be willing to offload a player who was once considered one of its most valuable assets.

The Blues wants the Napoli striker

Chelsea has a history of making the occasional big purchase. They may do so once more during the January transfer window. Victor Osimhen of Napoli and Ivan Toney of Brentford are both targets for the London club in January, according to The Guardian.

The Napoli official social media team released two films criticising Osimhen for missing a penalty against Bologna. It puts him in the middle of an odd controversy. Osimhen’s career in Serie A is in jeopardy due to the massive controversy caused by the since-deleted footage.

Osimhen’s valuation to Manchester United, according to a summer report in The Mirror, was $207 million (£170 million/€196 million). He is not going to be cheap, even amid the bizarre TikTok commotion.

Ansu Fati is “up for sale” according to Barcelona

According to a Spanish outlet called Sport, Barcelona could have no choice but to permanently transfer Brighton winger Ansu Fati. The Catalans still have severe financial issues. So, if they want to add players before the summer of next year, they will need to raise money by selling players. Currently, Fati is said to be one of the team members whose abilities are most likely to be sold in an effort to raise money.

The goal of Fati’s loan to Brighton and Roberto De Zerbi is for the Italian coach to advance his career in the Premier League this year. As a result of which, Barcelona can earn more money in the summer as his value rises.
