As competitions return in Europe, many top teams begin to plan their future. It's still uncertain the real impact COVID-19 will have in the next transfer window. However, some rumors begin to pop up regarding the future of many stars across Europe.
We focus on Serie A and give you the latest transfer rumors.
Matthijs De Ligt to replace Sergio Ramos at Real Madrid?
According to Calcio Mercato, Real Madrid thinks about Matthijs De Ligt to replace Sergio Ramos. De Ligt is seen as the perfect player once the team's captain calls time on his career at Santiago Bernabeu.
Serie A champions paid €75 million to take the 20-year-old from Ajax last July.
The same source indicates that the Blancos are willing to reach the €100 million mark to guarantee De Ligt's services. Barcelona is also reportedly interested if the player becomes available in the market.
It seems difficult to believe that Juventus could let the player leave Turin. But, judging by his first season in Serie A, Juventus might think about a transfer if a good proposal arrives.
Luka Jovic to join AC Milan?
Going through rough times at Real Madrid, Luka Jovic has been pointed to an exit in the next transfer window.
After a great season at the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt, Luka Jovic joined Real Madrid last July in a €60 million transfer.
In the shadow of Karim Benzema, he made just 2 goals in 24 appearances, while also raising some questions outside the pitch. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Jovic broke confinement policies and even got injured during that period.
AC Milan believes the player can regain the stellar level displayed in the Bundesliga. The 22-year-old fits perfectly in Milan's strategy for the future and the club is reportedly planning a move for the player soon. Real Madrid will not oppose moving the player, but only if AC Milan meets their €50 million asking price.
Immobile to be the face of Newcastle's re-build?
If Newcastle takeover by the Saudi-backed consortium moves through, the club will be one of the key players in the next transfer window.
It's still uncertain if the deal goes through, but there are already lots of rumors pointing stars to Saint James Park. One of them is Serie A's top goalscorer Ciro Immobile from Lazio. Reports from the Italian press suggest that Newcastle is planning a €55 million bid for the striker, adding an €8 million offer per season to convince the player to come to the Premier League.
The 30-year-old forward has also been linked to Manchester United, but that possibility remains very unlikely.
