Mercato is a bit like the world of fashion, with different trends each year. And for the 2019 Winter Collection, the attackers are in the spotlight. Often called a reserve market, the winter session must be used to rectify past summer mistakes to compensate for injuries or simply to fill a gap. Many clubs have one thing in common for this January: the goals to be filled are in attack. It's hard not to start thinking about the desperate Olympique de Marseille for an effective striker, which is not true of Valère Germain or Kostas Mitroglou. Priority leads Mario Balotelli, broken with OGC Nice, ready to release him. fit Provence, OM tries the maximum to meet the financial requirements of the international Italian and even proposed a 6-month loan to Nice!
OM began to diversify its research into the difficulties encountered once again in this thorny issue, with an apparent offer to Antonio Sanabria, striker Betis Sevilla. The fans in Marseille become more impatient, especially as other clubs collect the signatures. We are, of course, thinking about AS Monaco, which has completed the arrival of 4 recruits and is trying to pull Michy Batshuayi Chelsea (who is blocking). Like many times, it is a vast musical chairs game that is set up. Valencia is not happy with the current audience (Kevin Gameiro is also concerned) and could recruit a new number. Just like the Spanish heads who are Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.
Chelsea, the cornerstone of the attackers' market
Real Madrid has discovered that neither Karim Benzema nor Gareth Bale have been able to seal Cristiano Ronaldo. Worse, Mariano's long indulgence, Bale's recent wounds, and the recent fracture of Benzema's finger push the merengue direction to overturn the attackers' market to revitalize the offensive sector. The names Mauro Icardi (Inter Milan) and Krzysztof Piatek (Genoa, but leaving for AC Milan) are reported by the Madrid press. In the Catalan side, 32-year-old Luis Suarez actively seeks a double and thinks of Stuani (Girona), Ighalo (who plays in China) and Giroud (Chelsea). Chelsea is also one of the great rumors of this mercato.
Maurizio Sarri is not convinced by Alvaro Morata, recruited a year and a half ago, with 80 million euros, the most expensive transfer in Blues history. Spanish international can not test the bank and wants to return to Spain, where Atlético Madrid is interested. For Colchoneros, it is better to cover the two attack positions held by Griezmann and Diego Costa, while Kalinic does not persuade the main lining. Kalinic could also change the air. But back to Chelsea, whose main target is Gonzalo Higuain, who did not adapt well to AC Milan and dreams of finding Sarri in Chelsea. The case is complex compared to last year's Juventus set to send to AC Milan but seems possible.
In addition, to believe the Italian press last night, everything would now be settled between Chelsea and Juventus in the form of a renewable one-year loan! It is also possible that AC Milan has already targeted Higuain's successor Krzysztof Piatek, for whom a bid of between 40 and 45 million euros has already been made and could become Milan in the coming days. Chelsea is the cornerstone of the attacker's market, as the completion of Higuain's record will accelerate the departure of Morata and possibly Batshuayi, still under contract with Blues. Within a few weeks, many clubs managed to redress the outline of their attack. It remains to be seen if this will be successful.
