Here’s your daily round-up of the latest transfer gossip from World Soccer.
GUARDIOLA CONFIDENT DE BRUYNE WILL SIGN NEW CONTRACT
Even though he’s already under contract for another two years at least, Manchester City are already looking at getting Kevin De Bruyne tied down to a new long-term contract at the Etihad. Given his performances for The Citizens over the last few years, that doesn’t come as much of a surprise. He’s arguably established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world.
According to Sky Sports, a proposal for a new deal is already on the table, but neither De Bruyne or City feel in a rush to agree the extension. When asked about the situation, Pep Guardiola said: “I’m pretty sure he will stay but at the same time we have to respect the process.”
OZIL’S NOT SHORT OF OFFERS
From one Premier League midfielder to another, in the form of Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil. The 32-year-old already made it clear that he’s not expecting to have any trouble finding a new club when he departs the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season, and the early signs are that he was spot on with that assessment.
According to Football London, he’s in talks with DC United about a lucrative move to the Major League Soccer Side. Not only are they offering Ozil regular first-team football, but also a chance to expand his brand. However, according to the Daily Mail, the midfielder has reached an agreement with Fenerbahce and will sign a three-and-a-half year contract in Turkey.
Time will tell, but it does seem as though the saga is about to finally end.
ARSENAL INTERESTED IN BUENDIA
According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are keen on signing Norwich City midfielder Emiliano Buendia but are unlikely to get a deal over the line because of a lack of funds. That being said, if they do manage to offload Ozil, then this situation could change very quickly.
