Arsenal Places Huge Price Tag On Giroud As Aubameyang’s Salary Leaks

January 29, 2018 12:18 pm
The completion of Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang deal could see Olivier Giroud move to Chelsea for £35 million, according to the Daily Mail .
 
Giroud would head to Stamford Bridge if the Blues meet the Gunners’ valuation of the Frenchman, who would be available to play in the Champions League.
 
For Dortmund’s part, the Bundesliga outfit are said to be targeting former Koln striker Anthony Modeste as Aubemeyang’s replacement at Signal Iduna Park.
The LA Galaxy are closing in on a move for Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to ESPN FC .
 
United’s recent addition of Alexis Sanchez has further limited Ibrahimovic’s prospects for playing time, opening up the possibility that the Sweden international will head to MLS.
 
The Galaxy reportedly would not use one of their big-money designated player slots on Ibrahimovic, whose income could be augmented by sponsors or other outside sources.
 
Arsenal are confident they can get a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over the line in the coming days despite having low-balled Dortmund on two occasions, claims the Mirror .
 
Terms are said to have been agreed with Aubameyang himself over a three-and-a-half-year deal worth £180,000 per week, though the Gunners will need to pay BVB’s full asking price to land their man.
 
Real Madrid will wait until 2019 to make a move for Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar, Don Balon claims.
 
Standing in the way of a swifter conclusion is Cristiano Ronaldo, with it said that Madrid are finding it difficult to get the Portuguese, and his gargantuan wage bill, off of their books.
 
As such, Florentino Perez is prepared to wait until 2019 — allegedly when Ronaldo will make a move to Major League Soccer — before making a serious move for the Brazilian.
 
Harry Kane has conditions that must be met if Real Madrid are to have any hope of signing him, Diario Gol reports.
 
The Spanish outlet claims Kane would prefer to work under Mauricio Pochettino rather than Zinedine Zidane, with the latter looking likely to be replaced in the summer.
 
Signing Pochettino would go a long way to getting Kane onboard, but it is said that the England striker has no desire to play alongside Karim Benzema or Cristiano Ronaldo, and would ask that the Spanish capital club sell those players before his arrival.
