The January transfer window is almost upon us and there are rumours aplenty despite there still being plenty of World Cup football to be played before the mid-season market opens. Jude Bellingham is among the main talking points as the Borussia Dortmund midfielder – a target for Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid – stars for England out in Qatar.
Bellingham is bound to fetch a fee of over £100million but is unlikely to be leaving Germany after the World Cup, with a summer exit from Dortmund far more likely. One player who is certain to find a new club after his international exploits out in the Middle East is Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo left Manchester United by mutual consent last month and is being courted by clubs across the globe. The Portugal captain is being heavily linked with Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nassr, who have made a gigantic offer to the 37-year-old veteran that could reach £160m per year.
Elsewhere, Chelsea are keen on Croatian centre-half Josko Gvardiol of RB Leipzig. Croatia are into the World Cup quarter-finals after beating Japan last night with the defender’s price tag continuing to rise. He could cost over £75million come the summer window.
