The transfer window: Manchester City refines its strategy for Lionel Messi


Manchester City who still dreams of Messi, Pochettino who would like Alli in Paris or Leipzig who retains Sabitzer: discover all the information of the transfer window for this Wednesday, December 30, 2020.

City don't give up for Messi

His future made the headlines last summer, and we risk leaving for a round in 2021. Lionel Messi has still not extended his contract at FC Barcelona, ​​he who is awaiting the elections scheduled for the end of January to discuss with the next one club president.

At the same time, Manchester City, considered favorite to recover the Argentine striker (33), is licking their chops.



report that the English club still have Messi in the sights, especially after his interview with Sexta where he opened the door to an end of career in the United States.

That's good, the City Football Group owns a club in Manchester, but also one in New York.

The idea would then be that Messi, 34 years old next June, signs a 5-year contract: three years in the Premier League then two more in MLS.

The long-term presence of his former coach Pep Guardiola, but also of Txiki Begiristain, former sports director of the Catalan club, would be all arguments to seduce the six-fold Ballon d'Or.

PSG: Pochettino will claim Dele Alli

Now that Thomas Tuchel has officially been taken off, it should only be a matter of hours before Mauricio Pochettino is appointed coach of Paris Saint-Germain.

And according to the

Daily Mail

, one of the first wishes he will make to his leaders will be the loan of Dele Alli.

The English attacking midfielder (24), who had exploded under the orders of Pochettino at Tottenham, is not at all favored by José Mourinho.

PSG did not wait for Pochettino to approach the capital to try to recruit Alli, with several loan offers last summer, without success.

Spurs officials were attached to their young star, under contract until 2024, but she has only played 74 minutes in the Premier League this season.

A loan to Paris could revive Alli before a possible return to London, and would prevent the Parisian club from spending money it does not have.

Leipzig confirms interest in Sabitzer

According to the

Evening Standard

, Tottenham ticked off the name of attacking midfielder Marcel Sabitzer for the winter transfer window, under the leadership of José Mourinho.

Markus Krosche, the sports director of Leipzig where Sabitzer has played since 2014, said he wanted to “finish the year first” before discussing the future of the Austrian international.

"He has improved a lot, it goes without saying that other clubs have noticed," he replied to the daily




about an interest from Tottenham.

Sabitzer (26) had 13 goals and 10 assists in 41 Bundesliga and Champions League appearances last season.

A departure from Dele Alli (see above) would necessarily facilitate a move, even if Leipzig don't want to hear about it until next summer.

The exit is emerging for Radovanovic (Lens)

With 16 matches played in the last two seasons of Ligue 2, Aleksandar Radovanovic has made a contribution to RC Lens's comeback in Ligue 1. But this season, the 27-year-old Serbian central defender has only played one match, in Lille on October 18 (4-0 defeat).

"He had expressed the wish to find another club which was not done", explained coach Franck Haise in December, stressing that his player "has a good left foot anyway".

Foot Mercato

reveals that Lens will not retain him in January, and several clubs have already contacted the player's entourage.

Among them, the Spaniards from Leganés, the Turks from Sivasspor, the Russians from Khimki and the Austrians from Rapid Vienna.
