Inter Milan have made their fourth official signing of the summer after acquiring Dalbert from Nice on a reported fee of €20 million. The 23-year-old becomes Inter’s fourth major summer signing after the arrivals of Milan Skriniar, Borja Valero and Matias Vecino.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be on his way back to Manchester United, as The Red Devils and the Swedish forward have began to talk about a potential reunion.
Fiorentina lost Borja and Vecino to Inter, but they have improved their midfield depth with the arrival of Marco Benassi from Torino on a five-year deal.
Real Betis have officially announced the deal to sign Ryad Boudebouz on a four-year deal from Montpellier.
Carlos Bacca remains part of AC Milan, but it is clear he won’t remain with the Serie A side much longer. He could be on the move soon, though – his agent recently stated that “the majority of Europe’s biggest clubs, and I’m not going to go into any details, have already enquired about his situation.”
Villarreal are set to lose one of their most important players ahead of the new season, as Roberto Soldado is keen to join Fenerbahce. Ergo, El Submarino Amarillo are already testing the market to find a replacement before the Liga season starts next week.
FC Barcelona should make the move for Philippe Coutinho official in the coming days, but they are not done yet and are set to start talks with Borussia Dortmund in an effort to try to acquire Ousmane Dembele as well.
Chelsea are desperate to strengthen their left side of the pitch and are reportedly looking at Valencia’s left back Cancelo, who impressed with Portugal U21 this summer.
Los Blaugranas were also pretty close to land Inigo Martinez from Real Sociedad, but the deal is no longer set to be completed. Barca want to pay less than the €32 million Real are asking, and their request has not been met yet.
Ezequiel Garay is clearly on his way out of Valencia. Juventus expressed an intention to sign him a few days ago, and now Spartak Moscow have also enquired about the Argentinian centre back.
