Fussball Server rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Friday, August 28.
Friday morning’s La Liga transfer talk news roundup:
Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur want £22m Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid?
Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly both interested in signing Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid this summer.
The 23-year-old impressed during his loan spell with Sevilla last season, helping the club to win their sixth Europa League title in addition to finishing fourth in La Liga.
Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is thought to prefer Ferland Mendy as his long-term left-back option and has subsequently made Reguilon available for transfer, alerting a host of Europe’s top clubs.
Chelsea had been heavily linked before instead signing Ben Chilwell in a £45m deal from Leicester City, but a move to the Premier League could still be in the offing for Reguilon.
Marca reports that Manchester United and Spurs are both monitoring the Spaniard’s situation, but could face competition for his signature from Italian sides Juventus and Inter Milan, while Sevilla are interested in a permanent deal.
Madrid are expected to demand up to €25m (£22.4m) for Reguilon, who came through the ranks in the Spanish capital but has only made 22 appearances for the first team.
Ronald Koeman ‘to rebuild Barcelona around Antoine Griezmann’
New Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman is reportedly planning to build his team around Antoine Griezmann.
The Dutch boss, who replaced Quique Setien in charge at Camp Nou earlier this month, has suffered a turbulent start to his reign, most notably with captain and talisman Lionel Messi handing in a transfer request on Tuesday.
Koeman had initially planned to make Messi the central figure of his new-look Barcelona, having already decided to offload a number of other ageing high-profile players such as Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal.
However, L’Equipe reports that the former Everton, Southampton and Netherlands boss has told Griezmann that he will now focus the rebuild around him.
Griezmann joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid in a €120m (£108m) deal last summer but endured an underwhelming debut campaign with the Catalan outfit as they surrendered their La Liga title and were knocked out early in both the Champions League and Copa del Rey.
The 29-year-old completed the full 90 minutes just 19 times across all competitions throughout the season, scoring 15 goals and creating four more in 48 appearances.
Koeman plans to use Griezmann in a similar free role to the one he excelled in with Atletico Madrid, though, and has even promised the France international his favoured number seven shirt – previously occupied by Philippe Coutinho.
