Barcelona transfer news LIVE updates: All the latest from the Nou Camp
Wednesday June 6
Thomas Lemar interest
Chelsea are reportedly poised to battle Barcelona and Atletico Madrid for Thomas Lemar this summer.
Spanish outlet Sport claim Chelsea are showing a keen interest in Lemar as they plan for the 2018/19 campaign.
While Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are also said to be eager to get the 22-year-old on-board as they look to strengthen.
Sport indicate Barcelona have been in touch with Monaco already regarding a potential deal for Lemar, who’s up for a new challenge.
And Monaco are apparently willing to do business for between £61-79m (€70-90m) - £9m (€10m) less than they quoted Liverpool last summer.
Barcelona Transfer News: Manchester City are also interested in signing Miralem Pjanic
Luis Suarez wants Miralem Pjanic arrival
The transfer window is in full swing and we’ve already started to see a few familiar stories hit the headlines.
The latest involves Luis Suarez, who has supposedly asked Barcelona to sign Juventus playmaker Miralem Pjanic.
The 28-year-old scored seven goals and provided 14 assists for Juventus this season and is viewed as the ideal replacement for legendary midfielder Andres Iniesta.
Spanish website Don Balon, who are known for their outlandish transfer claims, report that Suarez believes Pjanic has the perfect “philosophy” for Ernesto Valverde’s side.
The report adds that Barcelona are prepared to offer £45million for his signature and will include Andre Gomes as part of the deal.
If this story feels familiar then it’s probably because Don Balon recently claimed that Lionel Messi would like to see Pjanic at the Nou Camp next season.
Telepathic thinking from the South American duo, right?
