- Barcelona have entered the race to sign CSKA Moscow and Russia’s starman Aleksandr Golovin
- Juventus are currently the favorites to sign Aleksandr Golovin for a reported fee of €30m
In today’s latest Barcelona transfer news, the Spanish Champions will face a stiff competition from Juventus for the signing of CSKA Moscow star Aleksandr Golovin, reports Corrieredellosport. Golovin is currently leading Russia to an exceptional FIFA World Cup 2018 campaign where they will be taking on Spain in the round of 16 clash of the FIFA WC 2018. Golovin has racked up 1 goal and 2 assists for Russia which has made him one of the most in-demand players for this summer’s transfer window. Until now, it was believed that Juventus are leading the race for Golovin, however, Mundo Deportivo made a staggering claim last night about Barcelona’s interest in signing Golovin this summer.
Barcelona have entered the Aleksandr Golovin transfer race
Mundo Deportivo reckons that Barcelona are thinking heavily to reinforce their midfield in the summer transfer window as they face the possibility of losing Andres Iniesta, Andre Gomes, and possibly Ivan Rakitic this summer. Aleksandr Golovin transfer news has picked up in recent weeks after the CSKA Moscow midfielder has proved himself to be one of the best players at FIFA WC 2018. Prior to the World Cup 2018, Juventus were interested in the Russian star and according to the reliable sources of Gianluca Di Marzio, the Italian Champions have even offered €19million to sign Golovin this summer.
However, Corrieredellosport are convinced that CSKA Moscow have refused to sell Golovin for anything less than €30million and have turned down Juventus’ opening bid for Golovin. The delay from Juventus in reaching an agreement for Golovin has given Barcelona enough time to offer their formal bid and sign the Russia star before the start of next season. Arsenal and Chelsea are also said to be interested in Golovin but the Premier League sides are yet to make an offer.
According to reports from Corrieredellosport, at this moment Juventus are leading the Aleksandr Golovin transfer race, however, the situation has changed in last 48 hours with Barcelona expressing a strong interest for the player. Given the fact that CSKA Moscow have named their price for the player, it definitely makes things easier for Barcelona and Juventus to strategize their transfer move for Golovin.
It is worth noting that Juventus and Barcelona are also locked in another transfer battle as the Catalan side are keen on snatching Miralem Pjanic away from Turin this summer. Corrieredellosport believes that both Barcelona both Barcelona and Juventus will settle on Pjanic and Golovin transfer battle soon and we may see that the team signing Golovin ends up cooling their interest in Pjanic.
Juventus have recently signed Emre Can from Liverpool on a free transfer and unless they deiced to sell Pjanic to Barcelona, it is hard for the Serie A Champions to go out and bring another midfielder this summer. We are certain that both Aleksandr Golovin transfer news and Miralem Pjanic transfer news will be settled by the time FIFA WC ends giving both Juventus and Barcelona enough time to prepare for the 2018-19 season.
