#SportNewstoday #News #SportNewsTV Barcelona, Real Madrid and the rest of La Liga are currently on the winter break as the league in Spain will resume on 3rd January, 2019.
In today’s La Liga news round-up, we take a look at some interesting stories from Spain, including a few shock transfers that may happen in the January transfer window.
Here’s the latest football news and transfer stories from La Liga:
#1 Jordi Alba to extend contract
Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba, who has been an integral part of the Catalan team for the past 6 years looks set to extend his Barcelona contract for another four years, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
His new deal will see it run till 2023 when Alba will be 34 years of age. The Spanish left-back joined the La Liga champions in 2012 and has won four La Liga titles as well as a Champions League title in his current spell with Barcelona.
#2 Atletico Madrid star unhappy at club
Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has shocked fans by claiming that he’s unhappy at the club.
Speaking to Gol (via AS), the 25-year-old said that he sometimes feels unhappy at the club. “Sometimes I feel unhappy at Atlético. You have to play in the important games to feel happy, to feel stronger and more confident,” said Partey.
Partey continued airing his disappointment about how he has not been given enough game time by manager Diego Simeone in this season: “There have been games that I have played well,” said the midfielder.
The Ghanian midfielder came through the ranks at Atleti, having joined the side in 2011. Partey has been involved in 14 matches for Atletico in La Liga this season, half of which have been from the bench.
#3 Nabil Fekir to join Real Madrid?
Liverpool signed several top players prior to the season, signing the likes of Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alisson, and Xherdan Shaqiri, all of whom have gone on to make a huge impact in the Merseyside club’s great start to the Premier League.
One player that they missed out on in the summer was Nabil Fekir, who was part of France’s World Cup-winning squad over the summer. Fekir was closing on a move to Liverpool only for the deal to fall flat in the end. It seems that Liverpool may miss out on him once again as Real Madrid are interested in the Lyon attacking midfielder, as per Marca. Chelsea are also reportedly interested in the French attacking midfielder.
The Frenchman’s contract at Lyon expires in 2020, so the French side will have to sell him in January or over the summer or he will be allowed to leave on a free transfer. Fekir has scored 4 goals and completed 2 assists in Ligue 1 for Lyon so far this season.
#4 PSG star interested in move to Barca on a free
PSG’s Adrien Rabiot looks set to leave Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in the summer as his contract is set to expire at the Ligue 1 club.
The midfielder has attracted interest from a host of clubs, notably from La Liga champions Barcelona. Telefoot are reporting that the 23-year-old will shun interest from England’s Tottenham Hotspur to sign for Barcelona when his contract expires. The report suggests that Rabiot will sign a pre-contract in January to complete his move to the Catalan giants in the summer.
#5 Frenkie de Jong transfer update
Ajax’s 21-year-old midfielder Frenkie de Jong is a player who’s caught the interest of most of the big teams in Europe, and Barcelona seem to be leading in the race to sign the young Dutch starlet.
Mundo Deportivo (via Daily Mail) are reporting that a deal to bring the Dutchman to Barcelona is edging closer and that a deal will be completed soon. The Spanish newspaper have claimed that the two parties have agreed a contract which could indicate that the signing is imminent.
de Jong’s agent had this to say regarding the future of his client, last week: “I think a decision will be made in the coming weeks. As such, he can focus on football in the month following the Christmas break. He needs to concentrate on that.”
