Hello guys, I hope you enjoy today’s Daily Briefing! :-)
Today’s top stories:
Rafael Leao’s father: “Rafael has a contract that ends in 2024, we’re in talks about new deal with AC Milan. Until that date, we are dealing with all of that. Without Chelsea, Real Madrid, Barça, we are dealing with that. Rafael loves being in Italy.”
Mykhaylo Mudryk has addressed links with Arsenal publicly, and has been highly complimentary of Mikel Arteta’s side.
From what I'm told, Mudryk has always been happy about Arsenal’s interest, both now and also back in August. He likes the club and the project, and for sure Arsenal are in the race alongside three or four more clubs; but it's about reaching an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk, they want more than €65m for Mudryk.
Mudryk said: "From a purely theoretical-fantasy perspective, if there was the option of being a bench player for Real Madrid or a starter for Arsenal, I’d probably choose Arsenal. But I'd first want to know from the head coach that I’d receive a chance.
“I follow Arsenal closely, they're a very dynamic side. One surprise for me was how many Arsenal fans followed me. No other club’s fans have interacted as much as them.”
💬 Do you think Mudryk is flirting with Arsenal over a possible transfer? Give me your thoughts in the comments!
Barca president Joan Laporta: “Leo Messi? Kids are always asking me for Messi to return here. My answer is: we will see. Messi’s Paris Saint-Germain player now — and I don't want to get into controversies.”
