The transfer window in the summer was unlike any other. Check out all of the significant signings and see how we evaluated them. Even if the window is closed until January, the rumors will continue to circulate. Here’s the most recent rumors and conjecture.
Sanchez might return to Barcelona, according to reports.
According to Sport, Alexis Sanchez might return to Barcelona from Internazionale in a deal that would send Luuk de Jong the opposite way.
Inter are glad to return the Chile striker to Barcelona on loan, owing to the fact that the 32-year-old has only started two games this season and has two goals and three assists in 14 appearances.
De Jong is on loan at Barcelona from Sevilla, but he has struggled to get playing time with the Blaugrana, and Inter are eager to transfer the 31-year-old Dutchman to the San Siro to bolster their attack.
The three clubs are currently collaborating to finish the different maneuvers. Sanchez would almost certainly be welcomed back in Catalonia, where he previously played between 2011 and 2014, scoring 47 goals and adding 35 assists in 141 appearances.
Now it seems that Barca president Joan Laporta and manager Xavi Hernandez will have to sign off on the agreement.

GOSSIP ON PAPER
– Newcastle United are interested in signing Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid in January, and the club’s new owners are ready to pay the former Tottenham Hotspur full-back the most money in the club’s history.
Despite having six months left on his Madrid deal, Trippier is desired in the northeast, according to Talksport. Trippier was a vital member of Atletico Madrid’s title-winning defense last season. Several teams, including Manchester United and Arsenal, have tried and failed to persuade him to return to England, but it is said that a £25 million deal will be enough to persuade the Spaniards to let the 31-year-old to return.
– According to Football Insider, Barcelona is planning a surprise deal for Chelsea youngster Ian Maatsen. During his loan stay at Coventry City, the 19-year-old left-back has been praised. Despite his high appreciation at Stamford Bridge, the Blues are in danger of losing him to Barcelona in January before he has a chance to demonstrate what he can accomplish in the capital.
Chelsea signed the youngster from PSV Eindhoven and he has a contract through 2024, although he has yet to make his complete appearance. The Netherlands U21 international has also played for Charlton Athletic on loan.
– According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea will not recall Conor Gallagher in January. The journalist’s allegation comes after Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said in a news conference that he had no remorse about allowing the midfielder to join the Eagles.
At Selhurst Park, Gallagher has been a revelation. He had six goals and three assists for Crystal Palace at the beginning of December, the most of any Premier League player aged 21 or younger, and he added another brace with his double against Everton last weekend.
– According to writer Nicolo Schira, Arthur Melo will depart Juventus in January. The Brazilian midfielder does not fit into Massimiliano Allegri’s plans, and the club wants him to go on loan for 18 months, with any possible new team obligated to purchase him at the end of that time. Sevilla, AS Roma, and Arsenal have all made offers to the 25-year-old, but his current earnings of €6 million with bonuses might be a sticking block.
