Tobias is on loan at Real Madrid

Because of the war in Ukraine, Vinicius Tobias will leave Shakhtar Donetsk as the Ukrainian club announced on Friday. The 18-year-old right-back, Brazilian U17 international, is on loan to Real Madrid for a year and a half. The Merengues would have an option to buy 18 million euros for the player who has not played a single minute with the first team of the Ukrainian club this season.

  • Our opinion : With Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez, the young Brazilian should learn at high speed.

Bosz very surprised by the recruitment of Tetê

Thursday, OL formalized the recruitment of Tetê until the end of the season. An unexpected catch according to Peter Bosz, the coach of Olympique Lyonnais. “I had just seen him with Shakhtar. He has individual qualities. I was surprised when his name was put on the table in Lyon. Honestly, I said to myself it was not possible to recruit such a player with these qualities“, dropped the Dutch technician.
  • Our opinion : A rookie who could bring a lot to OL in the final sprint in L1.

Vélodrome, promise of Aulas and competition: What if OL and OM went all the way?

Lamkel Zé joins Metz

Cameroonian striker Didier Lamkel Zé, who had been loaned by Royal Antwerp (Belgian 1st div.) to FC Khimki, has left the Russian club and will finish this season in Metz, the Moselle Ligue 1 club announced on Friday. The 25-year-old Cameroonian international (1 cap), who had been training in Metz since mid-March, was released from his loan to FC Khimki following the conflict in Ukraine. “He has been authorized by the various football authorities to commit to a new club“, specifies the Moselle club about the possibility offered to foreign players under contract with Russian and Ukrainian clubs to finish this season elsewhere.

Lamkel Zé is operational, according to coach Frédéric Antonetti, and should appear in the group on Sunday against Monaco, on behalf of the 30th day of L1. The 1.92 m Cameroonian striker has already evolved in France, in Lille under 19 and in the reserve team (2015-16), and in Niort (2016-18) in L2. Corrected in Rennes (6-1) two weeks ago, FC Metz is 19th in L1 and second worst attack, with only 26 goals scored in 29 matches. First relegated, he will receive Monaco on Sunday.

  • Our opinion : Just like OL, Metz is taking advantage of the new FIFA rules to strengthen itself.

Newcastle hot on Coutinho

Since the start of the calendar year, Philippe Coutinho has returned to his good habits in the Premier League. With Aston Villa, where he is on loan until the end of the season by Barça, the Brazilian international midfielder has already scored 4 goals and delivered 3 assists in the league. Statistics that would have strengthened Newcastle United in their desire to recruit him according to Mundo Deportivo. Even if the Magpies could offer him an XXL salary, the former Liverpool player, who would also be followed by Arsenal, would favor continuity with Steven Gerrard’s Villans.

  • Our opinion : Philippe Coutinho smiled again at Aston Villa. In the event of a proposal from the current 9th in the Premier League, the choice of the 29-year-old should be quickly made.

Bayern Munich negotiate for Gravenberch

Under contract with Ajax Amsterdam until June 2023, Ryan Gravenberch could leave his training club this summer. According to information from journalist Fabrizio Romano, Bayern Munich is pushing to recruit the 19-year-old midfielder and has made good progress in negotiations.

  • Our opinion : A good move to come for the reigning German champion.

Merlin extends to Nantes

Full-back Quentin Merlin, revelation of the season in Nantes, has extended his commitment to his training club until 2026, the Yellow and Green club announced on Friday. Born in Nantes 19 years ago, Merlin made his debut at FC Nantes at the age of 11 before gradually climbing the ranks to the professional group last year. Left winger during his training, also able to evolve as a central midfielder, he changed to a left side to save playing time and establish himself as a starter since November.

During the season, he progressed in defense, without giving up his attacking profile, as proved by his first professional goal: a shot from the left in the top corner in the victory against PSG in February (3-1 ). After several appearances in the youth teams, he was called up for the France Espoirs team for the first time two weeks ago but had to give up because of a big bruise suffered during the defeat against Lille (1-0 ) the day before the gathering.

I’m really proud to continue the adventure in my heart club“said Merlin in the press release from FC Nantes, referring to”a great mark of trust“.

  • Our opinion : A good choice for Nantes as for the player, who will continue to grow with the Canaries.
