AC Milan Sell Defender to Juventus; Chelsea and Man United Re-Ignite Interest in Former Targets

AC Milan has been in the headlines of most of the transfer rumors which have come up in the recent past. And the latest news which has come out links a Milan defender to Juventus. De Sciglio is the defender who is in concern and it is now official that he has moved to Juventus for a fee of 12 million Euros.

Images have come out where Mattia De Sciglio has been found giving medical at Juventus. And this move comes days after AC Milan has roped in Leonardo Bonucci from the Bianconeris. However, he will be playing as the right back position primarily and he will have big shoes to fill after Dani Alves left the club few days before Bonucci’s departure.

Now while AC Milan has grabbed the attention of most of the football fans across the world with their spending spree in this transfer window, the English clubs are still finding it difficult to sign their first-choice players. However, after confirming Alvaro Morata’s arrival (who has been a long-term target as well) at the club, Chelsea have fixed their eyes on Benjamin Mendy. The AS Monaco player has been tipped to be one of the future stars and they are really desperate to get him signed.

Benjamin Mendy

Benjamin Mendy is close to a move to Chelsea

Manchester City was previously looking forward to getting him signed but called off the move after they agreed to sign Danilo ( who has been previously linked to Chelsea). This has paved the way for Chelsea to bid for this French left-back. Mendy is the only option that the Blues have got in their hand at this moment. It could well be a blessing in disguise for Chelsea as Mendy used to be a first-choice player for AS Monaco which Danilo wasn’t (for Real Madrid). Also, his all-round display on the field could really turn out to be pivotal in crucial moments (particularly because of the fact that the side-backs have got an immense role to play in Conte’s playing style). However, there is still no official statement on this particular move and the future of this transfer rumor is subject to further revelation.

While Chelsea is looking much more active in the transfer window considering the fact that they have already signed three big names in the form of Bakayoko, Morata and Antonio Rudiger, Manchester United has been pretty aggressive with their moves. The signing of Romelu Lukaku is a clear indication of that. At this moment, the Red Devils are aiming to bring in talented Portuguese youngster Renato Sanches before the new season kicks-off in less than a month’s time.

Renato Sanches

Manchester United has revived their interest in Renato Sanches

Sanches has been a long time target for Manchester United. In fact, they were very close to signing him when he eventually joined Bayern Munich last season but failed to do so. But United renew their interest in this youngster as Bayern Munich makes sure that he is up for sale. It seems that Manchester United will receive a solid challenge from AC Milan. But a move to Old Trafford looks much more possible for Milan has already spent a lot and has brought in good promising players already. So they would perhaps prefer a much more experienced player to patrol the midfield area. On the other hand, United is looking forward to buying a young central midfielder, particularly with Michael Carrick aging and the move for Nemanja Matic failing to take shape despite looking favorable at one point. Hence, it looks pretty suitable for both sides.

However, with still a long time left to go before the start of the season, more importantly before the close of the transfer window, a lot can happen. So an even more interesting phase awaits all the football fans. To get a taste of what is going on keep your eyes here as we come with all the latest transfer rumors which are coming out from different sources.
