Sunday’s Transfer Round Up: Phillips, Ramsdale, Osimhen, Modric & Sancho

Juventus shows interest in Phillips

Although Kalvin Phillips has scored a penalty goal in the match against Red Star and recently scored his first Champions League goal, it’s a widely known fact that the England international will be leaving Etihad during the January transfer window. Since completing a £45 million move from Leeds last year, Phillips has struggled to find a spot in Pep Guardiola’s first-team plans and remains an unused substitute. With potential suitors lining up, Italian club Juventus appears to be the frontrunner in securing Phillips’ services.

Chelsea eyes Ramsdale

With Robert Sanchez sustaining an injury, Chelsea has prioritized signing a new goalkeeper during the January transfer window, aiming to secure a European return. Amid inconsistencies in their league performance, Aaron Ramsdale has emerged as a top target for Stamford Bridge, hoping to bring the England international on board to fill the void left by the injured Sanchez.

Osimhen’s future at Napoli

After making history with Napoli last season by earning a first Serie A title in over three decades, Victor Osimhen has attracted interest from several top clubs across Europe. Despite rumors of Chelsea making a club-record bid for the Nigerian striker, Osimhen is reportedly in talks to extend his contract with Napoli and insert a £115 million release clause.

Luka Modric set for Real Madrid exit

Amid Carlo Ancelotti’s inclination towards a younger squad, Luka Modric appears destined to depart Real Madrid next summer once his contract expires. Although there were earlier reports suggesting a potential move to Saudi Arabia, the 38-year-old midfielder is now linked with a move to the MLS or Middle East on a free transfer.

Struggles with Sancho’s transfer

Jadon Sancho, who has not made a single appearance since August and is training alone due to a fallout with manager Erik ten Hag, is facing a transfer deadlock. Despite interest from Dortmund and Juventus, Manchester United is struggling to find a buyer willing to meet Sancho’s hefty £350,000 per week wages. The Premier League club is eager to offload the young winger in the January transfer window, but finding a suitor remains a challenge.

In summary, the transfer market is heating up as top clubs look to secure new signings in January. The future of several star players is uncertain, with potential moves looming for the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Aaron Ramsdale, Victor Osimhen, Luka Modric, and Jadon Sancho. Keep updated on the latest developments as the transfer window approaches.
