During the summer transfer window of 2023, football fans have been getting daily thrills as clubs announce exciting updates of departures and signing of players. A recent update that created a tornado of emotions among the football fans internationally was the rejection of Liverpool’s initial bid for Roméo Lavia by Southampton. They reportedly want £50m for the talented midfielder as Lavia has impressed many despite Southampton’s relegation. Lavia is a crucial target as Liverpool looks to restructure their midfield. Chelsea also allegedly holds an interest in him.

As per the reports, Rasmus Hojlund is set to join Manchester United, rejecting a more lucrative offer from PSG. United’s third signing this summer comes after deals for Mason Mount and Andre Onana. The club refuses to meet Atalanta’s reported valuation of £80m as they’re standing firm with their alleged £60m bid. Bayern Munich is open to selling Sadio Mane, who has spoken to Al-Nassr, but no deal is finalized. Mane’s time at Bayern soured after reportedly punching teammate Leroy Sane, leading to his exclusion from the squad and a fine. He might join Cristiano Ronaldo at the club, which also signed Alex Telles and Marcelo Brozovic this summer.

PSG submit Rasmus Hojlund bid

Paris Saint-Germain have made their first bid for Atalanta’s striker Rasmus Hojlund, offering a reported amount of €50 million. However, the Serie A club is demanding a higher fee for the young attacker. As per the lastest reports, Manchester United is also interested and submitted a verbal offer of €50 million plus €10 million in add-ons. Hojlund has expressed his desire to leave Atalanta, and there are reports of preliminary personal terms agreed with another club. In his debut season in Italy, the 20-year-old forward scored eight goals and provided two assists in 31 appearances.

Fabinho getting closer to Al Ittihad

Fabinho has been excluded from Liverpool’s pre-season trip to Singapore as he is allegedly expected to finalize his move to the Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad. The transfer hit a break earlier due to payment structure issues but negotiations have resumed with the aim of completing the deal. Al Ittihad targeted the Brazil international with a reported amount of £40 million. The upcoming transfer is a part of their summer spending spree following the country’s Public Investment Fund taking control of major clubs. Fabinho’s absence from Jurgen Klopp’s squad during a training camp in Germany indicates the imminent transfer.

James Rodriguez set to join Sao Paulo

James Rodriguez is reportedly set to join the tenth club of his career so far, Sao Paulo, in Brazil after having his contract with Olympiakos terminated. The Colombian international, who previously played for Real Madrid and Everton, will move on a free transfer. His brief seven-month stay at Olympiakos saw him make 23 appearances and score five goals before the contract was cut short. Transfer expert and Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Rodriguez is heading to South America to finalize the deal soon.
