Getafe manager Jose Bordalas has backtracked on his comments suggesting that Jude Bellingham advised Mason Greenwood to make a move to Spain.

According to The Athletic, Bellingham's entourage was unhappy with the claims made by the manager and Bordalas clarified his comments after his side's 3-2 victory over Osasuna.

"It has been clarified to me that this was not the case. I apologise. Mason arrived in a different way. I just wanted to clarify that, it was not a bad intention," he said.

Odegaard set to extend with Arsenal

Arsenal is on the verge of finalizing a fresh contract for midfielder Martin Odegaard, as reported by Football Insider.

As negotiations reach their concluding stages, it's reported that the club captain is set to ink a four-year agreement, with a weekly wage of £200,000.

Odegaard, aged 24, initially joined Arsenal on loan from Real Madrid in 2020 before making his transfer permanent in 2021.

Newcastle ready to spend £52m in January on Paqueta

Newcastle United are eyeing to sign Lucas Paqueta from West Ham and are ready to spend £52million for the Brazilian, according to the Daily Mail.

The 26-year-old midfielder was on the shortlist of Manchester City but the deal fell through after the Football Association opened an investigation into alleged betting breaches by the player.

Barca keen on getting Isak as Lewandowski replacement

Barcelona has shown interest in acquiring Alexander Isak from Newcastle as they seek to secure a long-term replacement for their aging striker, Robert Lewandowski, who is now 35 years old, according to the Daily Mail.

Isak, a 23-year-old Swedish international, made a high-profile move to Newcastle last summer for a club-record transfer fee of £63 million. In his debut season, he made a significant impact, scoring 12 goals in 31 matches.

United, Arsenal and Liverpool monitoring Gloukh

Man United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all set their sights on FC Salzburg midfielder Oscar Gloukh, according to The Sun.

The Israeli international is a much-sought-after player as he has previously been scouted by Barcelona, Ajax and Borussia Dortmund. He moved to Salzburg from Maccabi Tel Aviv in January 2023.

PSG turned down opportunity to sign Bellingham

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) made the decision to reject the opportunity to sign midfielder Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund last year, according to  Le Parisien.

PSG's sporting director, Luis Campos, opted not to pursue the player as he had his eyes on the emergence of a promising 17-year-old talent, Warren Zaire-Emery. The teenager has started all five of PSG's Ligue 1 matches in the current season which shows that the Parisians have a long-term plan with the player.

Moyes speaks highly of Lingard

David Moyes was full of praises for Jesse Lingard who has been training with West Ham for the past few weeks.

They have named 24 players in their Premier League squad and hence can sign the former Manchester United forward as and when they will.

"Jesse has trained with us for three weeks and he’s improved greatly from when he first came in. He’s in really good condition – much better condition than he was when he first came in," he said.

"I have to say, when Jesse joined us two years ago I think he scored nine goals in 15 games and was probably the difference between us getting into Europe for the first time. I want to give him every opportunity to get himself back in condition and see how he does. So there’s no real update on it at the moment, just to say that he’s back and getting much closer to the levels of fitness where you’d hope he would be," he added.

Man City postpone contracts talks with Kevin De Bruyne

Manchester City have delayed contract talks with Kevin De Bruyne despite the Belgian having only 18 months left in his existing contract, according to the Daily Star.

The report claims that the club are currently monitoring the situation of the midfielder who is recovering from a long-term hamstring injury and is not expected to return before 2024.

Chelsea refused to sign Brozovic in the summer

Chelsea were reportedly offered Marcelo Brozovic but they refused to sign the midfielder before he moved to Al-Nassr, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Blues held talks with Inter earlier in the summer over the transfers of Andre Onana and Brozovic while they planned to send Kalidou Koulibaly the other way. Eventually, Onana ended up joining Manchester United while Brozovic and Koulibaly headed to Saudi Arabia.

Bayern continue to remain interested in Fulham star

Bayern Munich are reportedly still interested in signing Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha who recently signed a new contract with the club, according to Fabrizio Romano via Caughtoffside.

In his column, Romano wrote, "Joao Palhinha – Fulham are stronger on their position after contract extension, but the new deal was also done to give Joao a better salary until 2024. Then we will see in January or June, it will depend on bids and more. Bayern are still interested after coming close to getting the deal done in the summer, but obviously they’re not working on it yet."

Barcelona eyeing move for Newcastle star

Alexander Isak's impressive performances for Newcastle United has reportedly attracted interest from Barcelona, according to Fichajes.

Xavi is reportedly keen on bringing in the former Real Sociedad striker but the Magpies are likely to demand more than €70 million if the Catalan giants open talks.

Monchi wants to bring La Liga star to Aston Villa

Aston Villa's president of football operation Monchi is eyeing a move for Athletic Bilbao star Nico Williams, according to AS.

Williams, whose contract expires next summer, has drawn interest from Liverpool and Barcelona as well. But Athletic Bilbao remain confident that the player will sign a new contract soon.
