Transfer Gossip: Mendy's gaffes force City's hand, Juve eye late moves

  Transfer Gossip: Mendy's gaffes force City's hand, Juve eye late moves Nothing can dampen the never-ending nature of transfer talk. Here's a look at the wildest rumors making the rounds this week during the final days of the rescheduled summer transfer window. Mendy's mistakes force City to consider left-back help Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola's patience with defensive misfit Benjamin Mendy is understandably wearing thin, prompting the club to seek left-back reinforcements before the window closes at the end of the week. Two names previously tied to City have popped up again.

Last year' s winter transfer window featured little activity from the top-six sides, and Premier League clubs as a whole spent a relatively modest £215m in January. The Ivory Coast international was a target for Barcelona last summer , but Nice turned down a substantial bid from the La Liga leaders.

Real target Mbappe, will settle for Haaland

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe's eventual move to Real Madrid seems inevitable, and according to Eurosport, the Frenchman will join the reigning La Liga champs next summer to replace Luka Jovic. Hardly a like-for-like switch, with all due respect to Jovic.

Mbappe's terms with PSG will lapse in 2022, and while Real chief Florentino Perez is prepared to go all-in for the 21-year-old, the Daily Mail alleges Real will look to trigger Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland's €70-million release clause should a potential Mbappe fee prove too rich. Just get both, cowards.

Manchester City's efforts to provide competition for left-back Benjamin Mendy fell flat, with the club's reported interest in Bayern Munich's David Alaba and Ajax's Nicolas Tagliafico amounting to nothing. The Sun claims City will make a €22-million advance for Tagliafico in January.

Speaking of City, center-back Eric Garcia was set to return to Barcelona. According to the Manchester Evening News, Barca's bid for Garcia was €2.2 million short of City's €22-million valuation. But penny-pinching Barca might benefit from their thriftiness - Garcia's available for free next summer.

Cash-strapped Barca go bargain hunting

Spare a thought for financial titans Barcelona who - like every team involved in football at any level - have taken a hit due to the coronavirus pandemic. It seems the Catalan colossus are targeting soon-to-be free agents with the expectation that revenue losses continue. Spare a thought.

Tottenham's attempts to replace Jan Vertonghen in central defense will renew the club's efforts to pry Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan come January, according to TEAM Talk. Inter wanted €55 million for the Slovakian, but Spurs wouldn't pay more than €33 million.

Spurs will seek a €2-million loan for Skriniar featuring a €40-million permanent clause, although one might think Joe Rodon's signing from Swansea City would cancel this out. Word is Antonio Conte is eyeing Torino's Armando Izzo as a stand-in for Skriniar, with Matias Vecino going the other way.

United eye Kounde as remedy for comical defence

Manchester United are reportedly considering a €65-million move for Sevilla's Jules Kounde in January if the Red Devils can't correct their current defensive failures by then. That puts an unreasonable amount of faith in Victor Lindelof, who continues to perform at Lindelof-like levels.

United are also monitoring Villarreal's Pau Torres but need to offload Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo first. The team omitted Jones and Rojo from the Champions League squad, and both are worthless on the transfer market. Chief executive Ed Woodward continues to win rave reviews - with nobody.
