Latest Football News Content Daily Roundup Across Europe (03/07/2018)

Spain

Spain’s back pages have understandably led on their exit from the World Cup. ‘The End of a Generation’ is on the back page of AS while Mundo Deportivo’s headline is ‘The Ultimate Penalty’.

Chelsea have set a high price for Willian, who wishes to join Barcelona. The Catalan club have been quoted a price of €80m (£70.7m), which they reportedly believe is too high a price for a player approaching his 30s. (Mundo Deportivo)

Steven N’Zonzi – or, rather, his father – has told Sevilla that he would like to leave. The Frenchman has been linked with several Premier League clubs in the past, and reports suggest he has a €40m (£35.3m) release clause in his contract. (Mucho Deporte)

Speaking of fathers, Alvaro Morata’s has got involved regarding the Spanish forward’s current situation. According to Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda, Morata senior has asked Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to re-sign his son. (El Chiringuito TV)

Italy

The end of the Gianluigi Buffon saga could be influential in Leonardo Bonucci’s future. The Manchester United transfer target is also wanted by PSG, and could be tempted there by the presence of the Italian goalkeeper. (Corriere dello Sport)

Juventus have turned down a deal to buy Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio. The Rome-based club had proposed a deal in which Juventus paid £89million for the Serb while also sending over Uruguayan Rodrigo Bentancur. (Tuttosport)

Meanwhile, Juventus are keeping an eye on Cristiano Ronaldo. The Ballon d’Or winner has turned down a contract extension due to salary demands and his agent Jorge Mendes has opened a door to Italy. (Tuttosport)

Juventus and Chelsea could arrange a swap deal for Alvaro Morata and Gonzalo Higuain, with Maurizio Sarri – still rumoured to be the next Chelsea manager though nothing is official yet – interested in the Argentine striker. (Gazzetta dello Sport)

France

The Buffon saga will soon finally be at an end. The Italian goalkeeper’s move to Paris Saint-Germain reportedly will be made official this week. (L’Équipe)

Aston Villa will miss out on talented PSG youngster Jonathan Ikone. The winger is set to move to Lille for a price of around €5m (£4.4m) – the Villans could only afford to offer a loan move. (Paris United)

Germany

“Does nobody want ex-Schalke Meyer?” asks Bild. The former Schalke player has been officially without a club since Sunday, but few seem interested in the 22-year-old, who continues to train on the Greek island of Mykonos. (Bild)

Benjamin Pavard is staying at Stuttgart, according to their sporting director Michael Reschke. The Tottenham transfer target will not be available even for ’50 million euros’ as the German club look to hang onto the 22-year-old for another year. (Stuttgarter Nachrichten)

Germany’s early exit from the World Cup means their stars will have to jet around the world with their teams on pre-season tours that they would have otherwise been able to miss. At Dortmund, Marco Reus’ holiday period ends two days before the club fly to America. Bad for Reus, good for marketers, with the trip reportedly worth €8m (£7.1m) for the club. (Bild)
