On this week’s episode of Extra Time, Patrick and Dougie discuss some of the biggest transfer rumours to hit the headlines this week.
First, we turn our attention to Real Madrid, who are apparently keen to rebuild their frontline with moves totalling nearly half a billion euros for Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland, and Kylian Mbappe. But are those the right moves? Is Pogba right for their midfield? Will they have to sell Asensio or Hazard to make it work? Then we look at how Dortmund might respond to Sancho leaving. Paper talk suggests they’re already targeting Valencia’s Ferran Torres as a replacement, but there are question marks over his experience.
Next up is Barcelona’s interest in Tanguy Ndombele, who could be on his way out of Tottenham after falling out with Jose Mourinho. Could he be the man to complement Frenkie de Jong in the middle of the park?
Finally, we do a quick yes/no round-up of the other major rumours including Kingsley Coman also to Barca, Luka Jovic to Arsenal, Jack Grealish to Everton, and what Atletico, Chelsea, and Man United might do in the market.
