Bayern Munich have been strongly linked with a move for Sergino Dest this summer, with the 19-year-old being heavily tipped to make the switch to Bayern. Dest may not fancy his chances of breaking in to the Bayern starting line up, as he faces competition from Joshua Kimmich, who seems to be heir to Philipp Lahm at Bayern and Germany.
He also has to contend with French World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard, who moon lights as a right-back whenever required. Sergino Dest is said to cost around €25 million, money that Barcelona have already managed to raise through the sale of Nelson Semedo to Wolves for a reported fee of €30 million.
Dest could be set to become a part of the Koeman revolution at Barcelona, as Barcelona look to start a new era under the former Netherlands manager. Barcelona in recent weeks have sold Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez, Arturo Vidal and Nelson Semedo, in an attempt to sell some high earners in the club, who do not fit into Ronald Koeman's plans.
Recents Reports has it that Barcelona and Ajax are now signing paper works and contracts for Sergiño Dest. The deal is 100% done and confirmed. Sergiño will be in Barcelona to have medicals and sign his contract until June 2025. Agents also told to Bayern Münich board that Dest will play for Barça.
Sergino Dest will be the first in a series of new signings as Barcelona seek to replace their recent departures with some new additions to the squad. Barcelona have been linked with moves for Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum and Alexander Isak, but seem most keen to get a deal for Sergino Dest.
Barcelona attacker Francisco Triancao has opened up on the role he will play for the Catalan giants this season, as he looks set to hit the ground running immediately at the Camp Nou. The Portuguese star delivered a series of eye-catching displays in pre-season and is hailed as one of the brightest prospects in world football.
Speaking to "La Vanguardia", Trincao shed light on his early days at Barcelona, as he went on to heap praise on new manager Ronald Koeman.
“Koeman talks to me a lot and what he asks me most is that I be myself, that I try to score goals. I am a young player who still has to improve in all aspects, who has to analyze his games and who has to see what he is doing well and what he is doing wrong to evolve.”
The 20-year-old agreed a deal to join Barcelona, with the Catalan club parting with a fee believed to be in the region of €30 million to secure his signature. Trincao has since then made his full debut at Portugal and has joined Barcelona's first-team squad, as he looks set to play a key role for the club this season. The Portuguese star also said that he's forged a friendship with Pedri, who also joined the club this summer.
“I arrived in Barcelona earlier for the start of the preseason while most of the team was preparing for the Champions League in Lisbon. I was training while in Barcelona and the same thing happened to Pedri."
"We arrived together and we have become two people who have a very close relationship. But everyone has welcomed me perfectly!"
Barcelona are in the market for another attacker, as they look to add more quality and depth to their existing options. The striker Luis Suarez recently sealed a move to fellow La Liga side Atletico Madrid, with Koeman reportedly looking to draft in his replacement in the coming days. Memphis Depay has been linked with a move to Barcelona, while Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez is also a target for the club.
Italian club Lazio are in talks with Manchester United for the signature of Andreas Pereira, according to reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano. Pereira is regarded as an important squad player for Manchester United but has not been able to play consistent football at the club. He is yet to make an appearance for the first team this season
Manchester City have also been linked with Kalidou Koulibaly, Jules Kounde and José Giménez. Pep Guardiola is in the market to sign a right-sided defender to complement Aymeric Laporte. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes "Liam Delap" will make up the numbers as he manages his side through an injury crisis. Guardiola will be without Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
Speaking, he said:
"The situation we have right now, we have just 13 players available in the first team. With the problems we have up front, of course Liam will stay with us. We'll see if we need him or use him.
"He is a different striker than we have in terms of physicality, but we see in training sessions how good a finisher he is. Now we are calm, still working, but we are delighted with his performance.
"We can not forget, like the same way we spoke about Phil Foden in previous seasons, Liam's just 17 years old. He has a lot of things to improve, steps need their own time."
