Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano’s Daily Briefing – Wonderkid’s Chelsea snub explained, Arsenal loan decision, Man Utd’s GK situation + more

Hello and welcome to my daily roundup – a comprehensive roundup of exclusive transfer news and headlines, delivered to your inbox five mornings a week by clicking here to subscribe.

As for a possible loan in January, Arsenal have not yet decided on Marquinhos.

I think it is normal to talk about a new winger and not consider that Marquinhos is ready yet as he is very young, he only spent a few months in England and he needs to adapt, improve and become an important part of the first team in the future.

For sure they are very happy with Marquinhos and his approach in training as well.

Raphinha when asked about the possible offer from Real Madrid in the future: “Of course, I would say no to Real Madrid.”

Barcelona has been very clear in its recent internal discussions and planning: Alejandro Balde is considered an important player for the present and the future, appreciated by Xavi and the Barça board. Discussions about his contract status are expected to take place.

20 goals and assists already this season for Jamal Musiala with Bayern Munich, literally flying. The 19-year-old midfielder signed a new contract with Bayern in March 2021; It will be valid until June 2026.

FC Bayern manager Hasan Salihamidzic on Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s contract: “We would love to keep him. I have a good relationship with his agent. We will meet and see if we can satisfy him. He is a great asset to us. We are in contact and Choupo feels comfortable in Munich”.

Bayern are expected to make a “big move” to try and sign Harry Kane from Tottenham in the summer, according to top British soccer agent Haydn Dodge (CaughtOffside).

Ben Breton Diaz is an interesting player who continues to do well in the Championship with Blackburn, so could he make it to the Premier League soon?

There has always been interest from top-flight clubs, for example, Everton wanted him last summer. Now there are links with West Ham, although I understand it is not concrete or advanced, but the Premier League and La Liga clubs continue to monitor it.

Personally I think he is a very good striker, he needs a step up but an interesting talent who could be a good option for many teams on the market in the near future.

Jamal Musiala celebrates a goal with Bayern Munich

It’s not just Jamal Musiala, but also players like Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham decided to move to the Bundesliga as they are playing immediately against top talent when they are almost ready.

This makes all the difference and that’s why Musiala decided to leave Chelsea for Bayern in 2019. He’s doing great now, so it looks like he made the right decision.

At the moment there is nothing regarding a possible return to the Premier League since he has a contract until 2026 and does not plan to leave.

Chelsea are very happy with the impact of Cesare Casadei three months after signing him: he is expected to join first-team training during the World Cup break alongside Carney, Omari Hutchinson and company. Italian talent has now joined CAA Base as a new agency, as announced.

Now there is a very good opportunity for Milan Skriniar to agree a new contract with Inter. Much has been speculated about the possibility of the defender being a target for PSG and Manchester United, but now he is close to prolonging his stay at Inter.
