Football Transfers: Willian wants to join Barcelona, Morata eyes Juventus
Chelsea ace Willian wants to join Barcelona, while Real Madrid have rubbished reports linking them to a world record move for Neymar. Striker Morata has been linked with a move to Italy while Gonzalo Higuain might be heading to the Premier League. Paris Saint-Germain are close to signing Italian legendary duo. Here is all this and more from today's European papers.
Chelsea ace Willian wants to move to Barcelona
Chelsea mid-fielder Willian, who is enjoying a wonderful World Cup campaign with Brazil, wants to join team-mate Philippe Coutinho in Barcelona. Chelsea, however, do not want to lose their star and have put a price tag of €80 mn on the 30-year-old. Willian's contract at Stamford Bridge runs until 2020 and this would be his last chance for a big move.
Madrid deny €310 mn Neymar offer
Real Madrid have rubbished all reports that claimed that they tabled a world-record offer of €310 mn to sign Brazil superstar Neymar Jr. Madrid are keen to bring back the 26-year-old to La Liga and have been linked with this move for months now. However, they strongly denied these claims. Neymar is enjoying a fruitful campaign with Brazil.
PSG want AC Milan's Bonucci
PSG are preparing an offer to sign AC Milan's defensive star Leonardo Bonucci according to reports in Italy. The Ligue 1 Champions are keen to bring the Italian to Paris and AC Milan could be forced to sell after failing to meet the financial fair play regulations. PSG are also close to signing Gianluigi Buffon and hope it will help them in signing Bonucci.
Higuain-Morata swap could be on the cards
Reports are doing the rounds that Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain and Chelsea's Alvaro Morata could be involved in a swap deal. Morata had a disappointing debut season at Stamford Bridge and is reportedly keen on heading back to Turin, where he had a successful stint between 2014 and 2016. Juventus, on the other hand, have transfer listed 30-year-old Higuain.
