Daily Schmankerl: agreement rumored between Inter Milan and David Alaba, Havertz to transfer to Chelsea?

New, comments

A report from Italy claims Inter Milan has reached an agreement with David Alaba. Bild says, “Not so much.”

Apparently, rumors have suddenly emerged linking Bayern Munich’s David Alaba to Inter Milan, where Borussia Dortmund’s Achraf Hakimi is now headed. Ivan Reggiani claimed in an interview with Calciomercato that Alaba had already agreed to terms with Inter.

“As far as I know the player is leaving,” Reggiani said, “and I think Inter has already concluded something important. I think that an agreement has already been signed between Inter and the player’s entourage, and I think that Inter really could add him to their next squad.”

Bild says, however, that there is “currently not a lot” to back up the story. Inter is indeed interested, but there is no such agreement between the club and Alaba’s management. And, namely, “Alaba moreover does not want to transfer to Inter.”

Thank you, Herr Kapitän Offensichtlich.

Besides Inter, PSG, Chelsea, and Manchester City are interested in Alaba, but Bayern does not believe that any of them will make a serious bid in 2020. Alaba himself would only be interested in FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Kai Havertz reportedly will ask Bayer Leverkusen for permission to transfer sooner rather than later. According to Bild, Havertz “definitely wants out of Leverkusen this summer.” Bild claims, “After losing the DFB-Pokal final against Bayern, the offensive star has decided that a new beginning is the best solution for his burgeoning career.”

Bild claims that, according to their information, Chelsea FC is prepared to pay Leverkusen’s €100m asking price, but they will negotiate with Bayer about breaking it up into installments. Bild suggests, for example, that Chelsea could offer €70m up front and €30-40 at a later date.

Of course, if Chelsea fails to qualify for the Champions League, they can keep their money.

The other club reportedly interested in Havertz is Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane is said to be a fan of Havertz’s, but, like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid does not want to spend big on Havertz until 2021. If they sell enough players, though, perhaps they could afford him this summer after all.

Douglas Costa beats two men with one foot

At first glance, you might think he strikes the ball with his left foot and redirects it between the two players with his right, but look again: his right foot remains planted behind him the whole time. He makes both touches with his left foot.
