Today’s top stories:
There are negotiations ongoing between AC Milan and Rafael Leao, his agents and his family. I’m aware there’s been some speculation about talks stalling, and while it's not an easy deal, discussions are still ongoing. Paolo Maldini is on it and will try to find a solution as soon as possible. I don't see a transfer happening in January, honestly as Milan will try to keep him for sure; we've to see what happens in the summer.
What a season Martin Odegaard is having for Arsenal. He’s responded so well to the pressure of being made club captain, and he looks like he’ll be crucial to keeping their title challenge alive.
I think that was a perfect, smart signing. Edu always wanted Odegaard in 2021 over other candidates for that position, and it was a smart move. It was only Arsenal in the race at the time because Martin only wanted Arsenal. The real issue was to convince Real Madrid but Arsenal decided to wait and it was the best strategy to sign Martin in August.
Are there any regrets from Real Madrid’s end? I can’t say for sure but I don't think Real Madrid will think about re-signing Odegaard; he's happy at Arsenal.
💬 Can Martin Odegaard reach the level of players like Kevin De Bruyne? How impressive a signing do YOU think he has been? Let me know in the comments!
We know Barcelona want free agents again next summer as it’s a strategy that worked well for them last year, so we’re inevitably seeing a lot of names linked with the club!
Barcelona have been linked with Ilkay Gundogan, Youri Tielemans, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and several other free agents... it's normal, they keep close eye on top free agents and they will explore that market again.
