DONE DEALS: Real Madrid Flop Signs For Racing Murcia, Isco To Arsenal and More

Real Madrid flop signs for Racing Murcia one month after bankruptcy

Royston Drenthe’s career didn’t quite follow the path many expected it to when he signed for Real Madrid in 2007.

The Dutch winger was named as the player of the tournament at the 2007 iteration of the Under-21 European Championships. His performances played a key role in helping Holland eventually win the tournament, and it was no surprise when the Spanish capital outfit came calling for his signature.

 

Los Blancos parted with a reported £12.6m to sign the exciting youngster, but he could only muster four goals and five assists in 65 games during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Following loan spells with Hercules and Everton, Drenthe was eventually released by Real Madrid and the story of his career ever since is an intriguing one.

Manchester United complete Amad Diallo signing in deal worth up to £37m

Manchester United have completed the signing of Amad Diallo from Atalanta on Thursday in a deal worth around £37million.

The 18-year-old winger has signed a contract until 2025 with the option of a further year.

United reached an agreement with the Serie A club for Diallo on October 5, with just a successful visa application needed before Diallo can travel to Manchester and link up with his new team-mates.

“After waiting since the summer, it is finally a dream come true to complete my move to Manchester United,” Diallo said.

Seven Chelsea players Marina Granovskaia could sell to fund Frank Lampard’s dream transfers

The summer transfer window of 2020 saw Chelsea spend over £200m on a flurry of big-name signings that is yet to pay off as planned.

Frank Lampard’s side spent big before the start of the 2020/21 season and recruited the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva in a raid that has come under much criticism following a recent run of poor form at Stamford Bridge.

It is unlikely that the Blues will spend much money, if any in this month’s transfer window following the recent spending spree and instead, this could be an important window for Chelsea to claim back some of the money which they spent in the summer to both help balance the books and pave the way for future transfers.

Chelsea are still understood to be interested in West Ham midfielder Declan Rice with Lampard thought to be a huge fan, but a move in January is unrealistic given his asking price, so the Blues could raise funds for a future bid in the summer.

From Brazil: Neymar has convinced Lionel Messi to snub Man City and join PSG

When Neymar left Barcelona for Paris Saint Germain, Brazilian journalist Marcelo Bechler was the first one to come up with the full information on the move.

Now it seems there’s a compatriot of his trying to break the news of a similar transfer, which would be Lionel Messi’s departure to the French side.

On his Youtube channel Pilhado, Brazilian journalist Thiago Asmar claims that sources close to Neymar have told him the Argentine star is on his way to PSG.

These people have claimed that in Whatsapp conversations, Lionel Messi told his former teammate that he’s leaving Barcelona for the Paris club in the summer.

It’s said the 33-year-old was initially keener on moving to Manchester City, but he changed his mind once Neymar started having regular conversations with him.

‘I understand that’ – David Ornstein reveals Arteta’s transfer stance on Isco

Speaking recently on the Ask Ornstein YouTube show, David Ornstein discussed Arsenal’s reported interest in Real Madrid midfielder, Isco.

Since moving to Madrid from Malaga in what was a £27 million deal back in 2013, Isco has gone on to feature 318 times for Los Blancos, scoring 51 goals and providing 55 assists along the way.

However, so far this season, the £18 million-rated 28-year-old appears to not be a central part of Zinedine Zidane’s first-team plans, starting just three games in La Liga and playing a total of just 344 minutes.

As a result, it has been reported that the Spanish giants would be willing to part with the Spain international in the January transfer window, with Arsenal mentioned as a possible suitor for the midfielder.

However, speaking on a recent episode of the Ask Ornstein YouTube show, Ornstein stated his belief that Mikel Arteta is not overly keen on a move for Isco
