Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the transfer market developed differently during the summer than all previous ones, but there were many more shops, and the most important ones can be seen here. The window may be closed in the major European competitions, but here are the best rumours from around the world.
TOP STORY: Person LLC wants Atletico tripper
Manchester United could get a shock in January for Atletico Madrid defender Kiran Trippier, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Ole Gunnar Solkjaer is supposed to try to strengthen his defensive position, with England international Gonorrhea leading the way, but he could find the former Bernley a tricky player to stay away from Wanda Metropolitano.
Trippier has signed a contract with La Liga leaders Atletico until 2022, and it is on behalf of the latter that Diego Simeone is trying to extend his contract this season – he has started all ten of his La Liga games.
The former Manchester City boy came to Atletico in 2019 from Tottenham Hotspur for £20 million, and now he seems to be at his best.

16:22 GMT: Monterrey confirmed on Monday the appointment of Mexico’s former head coach Javier Aguirre, who returns to the MX-league for the first time in almost 20 years.
El Vasco has been Mexico’s best export trainer, with awards in Osasun, Atletico Madrid and Espanyola, as well as Japan and Egypt.
Sources told ESPN Mexico that he had signed a contract with the club for two years.
I’ll try to meet your expectations, Mr Aguirre said in his statement. I’m going to try to give back the love that the fans show us without any doubt and the love that the team has given so many years after winning the title.
14.31 GMT : Ole Gunnar Solskier has asked his Manchester United players to prove that they belong to the team and gain a place in the Champions League qualifiers.
Some need at least one point from a difficult trip to RB Leipzig on Tuesday to earn a place in the round of 16, and Solskjär has told his star players that they have to perform on a crucial evening.
The players are Manchester United players because they have the qualities we were looking for, Solskjaer said at a press conference on Monday. I’m sure they’ll prove why they’re here, they will. The character of the group is getting better and better.
That’s what we want, these games, it’s a tradition for Man United, we never make it easy on ourselves.
– Ogden: Solskier still has five days to go, which will determine his season.
13.25 GMT : Philippe Cutinho from Barcelona dodged the question of whether Lionel Messi would be at the club next season or whether Neimar would return to the Camp Nou.
In the run-up to Tuesday’s Champions League game against Juventus, Coutinho, who was himself linked to Juventus’ interest, was interviewed about his current club captain and Messi and his international teammates,
Mr. Cutiño said at a press conference: I don’t know what’s gonna happen next year. I can only talk about the present, about myself. Of course everyone wants to play with the best and we think the same here.
The team is recovering. Coaches have changes, players, important parts of the team. You have to be patient, and inside, we have to do everything we can to get it done quickly.
12.40 GMT: On Monday, Mario Balotelli will join the Serie B club in Monza, provided that the attacker submits a medical report.
Balotelli is independent after leaving Brescia at the end of last season. Before the end of the campaign, the 30-year-old is expected to sign a contract with a club owned by the former president of AC Milan, Silvio Berlusconi, and former sports director Adriano Galliani.
I told him this was really his last chance, Galliani told the reporters this weekend. I love him, but Mario had a lot more to do. He showed an amazing quality. I don’t understand why he’s still not making progress, he’s only 30 years old.
11.56 GMT: After Sunday’s 2-0 defeat in the North London derby, the pressure on Arsenal manager Michael Arteto has increased. Can he turn it back?

Gab Marcotti believes that Michael Arteta must perform a training miracle to get rid of the arsenal.
11:09 IN GREENWICH: Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhattle hopes star player Danny Inges will sign a new contract with the club.
Inges, 28, has scored five goals in eight games for the Saints this season, contributing to the 25 goals he scored in all leagues last season. The English international treaty of St. Mary’s expires in the summer of 2022, but Hasenhattl wants to secure his future in the near future.
It is very important for us because I think it is important for him to do so and I hope his agent will be led by him in the same way, he said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph.
He has to make a decision. We know that good players always have more opportunities to go somewhere, but I don’t think he wants to go somewhere because he knows what he has with this club. It’s obvious the big clubs are watching him, that’s normal.
Hassenhattle suggested that he would rather lose Inges within 18 months by a free transfer than have to sell him sooner: For us, as a small club, we have our limits. You can be sure that we will extend these restrictions as much as possible, and if that’s not enough, we won’t be the only club that loses players without transfer fees because they go elsewhere if they don’t want to extend their contract.
10:22 GMT: According to The Athletic, Chelsea will not propose to take Callum Hudson-Ode on credit or a permanent transfer window in January.
In October, sources told ESPN station Tom Hamilton that Chelsea had turned down an offer for an English-International from Munich-Bavaria, which has had fans for a long time.
20-year-old Hudson Odoi has not played in the last two games of Chelsea’s Premier League and manager Frank Lampard prefers to rely on the offensive talents of Christian Pulishich, Hakim Tsieh, Timo Werner, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz.
The Athletic, however, reports that Chelsea still sees him as a player with great potential, with options in his line-up.
09:35 GREENWICH MEAN TIME: Liverpool midfielder Giorginio Viinaldum has urged the club to make the first public statement about his future with the club.
The contract with the Dutch international expires at the end of the season and he regularly travels to Barcelona to meet his former national team boss, Ronald Coeman.
Weinaldum told Amazon Prime that after his 4-0 victory over the Wolves on Sunday, in which he scored a goal, he would not be able to score: Like I said, I’m not talking about the contractual situation, I’m talking about the games. The club needs to talk about my contract.
There’s been a connection from the first moment I came here. My supporters are very supportive, but as I said before, I’m not the one who should be talking about my contract right now.

8:48 GREENWICH MEAN TIME: AC Milan is waiting for the right moment to approach Zlatan Ibrahimovic and discuss the extension of his contract.
Ibrahimovich, 39, has scored 10 goals this season in six Series A games for the Rossoneri. The Swedish striker, who returned to Milan in January for his second performance, is connected to Rossoneri until June.
Ibrah is with us now and we haven’t talked about extending his contract, says AC Milan sports director Frederic Massara. We’re doing it at the right time. This will largely depend on his state of mind and his wishes. So far, he’s proved he wants to stay here. I think Milan gives him a lot of motivation. We hope he stays with us for a long time to come.
Recently Ibrahimovich said he wanted to keep playing. When he was questioned about his resignation last week, he told Skye: I’m not scared, but I know what to expect. I’m not ready to hang up, I feel too good. I’ll play at this level, provided I can keep giving. If I can’t do it, I don’t want to do it. That’s why I signed a contract for six months in January, to be honest with them and myself. I didn’t know I’d move on after those six months.

Gab Marcotti underlines the importance of Milan’s victory over Sampdoria in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
8:00 A.M. GMT: Spain striker Jesse Rodriguez has agreed to cancel his contract with St Germain de Paris, the club announced on Sunday.
Jess, who was under contract with the Giants 1 League until June 2021, has scored two goals in every PSG competition since he joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2016, making a total of 18 appearances.
The 27-year-old could not join the PSG department and was lent to UD Las Palmas, Stoke City, Real Betis and Sporting Lisbon at the club for four years.

Ozil, 32, was frozen in the arsenal by Michael Arteta and does not play in the Premier League of Champions League.
Ozil has confessed that he wants to stay at the club and fight for his place, and in January he doesn’t want to leave. However, his salary is seen as the main reason why other clubs haven’t paid him yet.
His contract expires next summer and he is determined to start his career when he becomes a free agent.
Ozil hopes that he gets a lot of attention and that he is an attractive calling card for another top club. He’ll probably have to cut his salary.
Story ends before the signing of the young Brazilian
Inter Milan are looking to strengthen their team between now and the end of the current campaign and next season, and Sky Sports Italy believe that Antonio Conte will look to young Brazilian striker Marcos Paulo.
Marcos Paulio’s contract with the Fluminenseurs expires at the end of the campaign. Inter was therefore able to sign a preliminary contract with him in January so that he could move to San Siro next summer.
The player who represented Portugal at youth level has already attracted the attention of some Italian clubs this summer, especially Parma and Turin, but it seems that it was Inter who took the first and most daring step.
He has already scored three goals this season, including one for Atletico Paranase last weekend. The 19-year-old can play on the flank as well as in the attack.
– Should Manchester United fail to defeat Trippier, they have a Plan B up their sleeve with the real defender Lucas Vasquez. Defensa Central thinks the United States will bet £15 million because they want to compete with Aaron Van Bissauka. Vasquez has become an important player for Zinedine Zidane this season because he started his life as a striker and works from right to left.
– Sami Khedira proves his popularity in England, according to Calciomercato. In recent weeks Premier League member Everton has been associated with a German international club, but he has also focused on three league clubs, including Watford, Bournemouth and Norwich City, rather than just one. The 33-year-old will enter the last six months of his contract with Juventus and the Italians want to relieve him in January to save 3 million euros on his salary.
