The Qatar 2022 World Cup is nearing its conclusion, the final will be played on Sunday and, while the various clubs are holding mini-retreats in anticipation of the Christmas holidays, it's time for the transfer market again.
The world tournament has relaunched some names, it has made others discover like the Croatian Gvardiol and the Argentine Fernandez (already known to Juventus fans for what he did with Benfica), and therefore it is legitimate to dream.
For example, as they do in Rome, where some local broadcasters relaunch Modric's suggestion in yellow and red if, by June 2023, he does not renew with Real Madrid.
Rather Mourinho and his managers will have to shore up some roles in the current team, starting with the right full-back, and recover Abraham, who lost the opportunity to be called up for the World Cup precisely because of his poor performance.
Just Fernandez could be a target for Roma, but Benfica are a very expensive shop and for this reason the negotiation could not take off.
And then there are also some English clubs on this player and, apparently, the usual Real.
The Friedkins certainly won't want to take part in auctions.
A World Cup played in a minor key, also due to some physical problems, has certainly not increased the quotation of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, as the president of Lazio Claudio Lotito would have hoped.
With the Serbian talent there is always a contract extension negotiation at stake, but for the first time the player is seriously looking elsewhere.
Due to the problems of the black and white club, the track of Juventus, which was seriously intending to get under way, has faded, if the 'Sergeant' leaves Formello, the most probable destination appears to be Arsenal.
Joao Felix, who has admirers in England, could leave Madrid on the Atletico side, but Cholo Simeone would not like to give the go-ahead and could veto him as he did last summer for another protagonist of this World Cup, his compatriot De Paul.
Fiorentina instead aims (and not from now) two jewels of Morocco, Ounahi and Boufal.
The president of Angers, Saïd Chabane, has made it known that the club is willing to sell them but no longer at the pre-World Cup prices, and therefore Viola must do their accounts well.
He could finance this double operation by selling Amrabat, another protagonist of the surprise Morocco, because it could be the last chance to monetize the farewell of the 26-year-old Dutch-born midfielder who has no intention of renewing the contract expiring in June 2024. Sabiri is liked instead to Lazio and it is a possibility, also in January, if the biancocelesti manage to sell Luis Alberto to Sevilla or Atletico Madrid.
However, Sarri would prefer, in the event of the Wizard's departure, that another disappointed player arrive at this World Cup,
