The clubs are starting the preseason and many still do not have their squads outlined for next season, so they are still looking for the best reinforcements in the market and the way to release those players discarded by the coaches.
Let’s see what the latest movements have been in the transfer market.
Olympique de Marseille can be a great ally for FC Barcelona in this market. As reported by the newspaper L’Esportiu The French club is working on a double operation to take Philippe Coutinho and Samuel Umtiti, two players who are on the starting ramp and do not count for Koeman.

We review some of the most recent news related to the transfer window for this summer period.
Inter Milan and Joao Mario have terminated their contract by mutual agreement despite the fact that the midfielder still had one more year in the Neroazzurro team, and a few hours later he has become a new Benfica player. The midfielder arrives as a free agent.
The departure of Joao Mario may be the last to occur at the Italian club, which after the sale of Achraf no longer has the need to release more players.

Antoine Griezmann is one of the best positioned players to leave FC Barcelona and thus be able to balance the club’s accounts.
