Gerard Piqué’s retirement surprised everybody

Piqué stated that he will play his last game for Barcelona this Sunday at Camp Nou. The announcement of the defender’s immediate retirement from the game took everyone at Barça by surprise. Only Laporta, Barca’s director, had been made aware of it moments before. According to the Spanish press, the player is living a nightmare with his direction and coach Xavi.

The fight for Endrick begins

The young Brazilian Endrick Felipe is the dream of the world's biggest clubs and Real Madrid has taken action. Indeed, a Merengue manager has travelled to Brazil to watch him play and try to lure him to the White House, explains Marca! Endrick has already scored nine goals and provided one assist in 12 games for Palmeiras so far this season. According to the daily, Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the youngster's services.

Athlético needs money

After being eliminated from every European competition, Athlético Madrid needs a quick source of money. And according to the press, they will keep their coach (that is actually in the middle of the tempest) and are putting four important players on the Mercato.

Joao Felix is, of course, the main item to be invited to leave. Despite a transfer fee of over €120m in the summer of 2019, the Portuguese never managed to fulfil his potential. Manchester United are still interested but will not offer the same crazy sums as they did this summer. Thomas Lemar, Yannick Carrasco and Rodrigo de Paul are the other three transfer targets from the Spanish club.

How about the Blues?
Big European clubs interest in Jorginho

Jorginho, whose contract with Chelsea expires on 30 June, is said to be at the heart of a huge battle between PSG and Barcelona. And another European colossus is reportedly in the running to sign the Italian midfielder: Stefano Pioli's AC Milan.
