Toney could leave Brentford
Ivan Toney is currently facing a suspension after breaching betting rules, but his Brentford manager Thomas Frank conceded he could depart.
“The Dane also gushed over the striker’s skills, calling him one of the best in the world.
“Despite the fact he will remain banned until mid-January, Toney has been linked with a string of top clubs including Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea.
“Discussing the prospect of Toney leaving, Frank said: “So far we’ve only sold one in the Premier League, that was David Raya – or that’s a loan but probably will be a sale in the future, I guess.
“’I think every club in the world are a selling club except five or six clubs. We are a selling club, if the right price is there.’”
Klopp committed to Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp remains committed to Liverpool after recent speculation he is wanted by his country.
“Former Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick was sacked by Germany earlier this month following a 4-1 friendly defeat to Japan, with the Euro 2024 hosts desperate to get their house in order ahead of putting on next year’s tournament.
“The dismissal immediately led to talk in Germany of a potential move for Klopp, with a public vote placing him as the coach that the vast majority of people wanted to see in the role.
“Klopp was quick to confirm his commitment to Liverpool though, with the 56-year-old under contract at Anfield until 2026 following what has been a glittering period in charge. Since being appointed in 2015 the Reds boss has won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup, and despite some struggles last season he is currently overseeing a rebuild of the squad which has started promisingly.”
Kane deal includes buyback clause
The Daily Mail states that Daniel Levy has confirmed that there is a buyback clause in the deal that took Harry Kane to Bayern Munich this summer.
“England’s all-time top scorer moved to the German giants in a £100million deal this summer and there was no suggestion of a buy-back clause at the time.
“However, Levy revealed the detail as he spoke at the first Tottenham fans forum for five years.
“‘There is a buy back clause’, he said, but did not elaborate further on the details of the clause.”
Terry keen to take Chelsea stake
The Telegraph reports that former Chelsea captain John Terry hopes to buy a stake in the club.
“Former Chelsea captain Terry and his partners are looking into making an offer for a 10 per cent stake that would incorporate fan investment through the online technology platform PrimaryBid, whose co-founder and chief executive Anand Sambasivan is a season-ticket holder at Stamford Bridge.
“Terry’s group is one of a number of potential investors in Chelsea, some of whom had been interested in Manchester United, although it remains to be seen whether they can raise enough cash.
“This is not the first time that Terry has looked into investing in Chelsea, having been part of a ‘True Blue’ consortium during the bidding process that saw Boehly and Clearlake Capital buy the club from Roman Abramovich for £2.5billion, plus £1.75bn in additional commitments. Clearlake owns just over 60 per cent of the club, with the remaining equity divided between Boehly, Hansjorg Wyss and Mark Walter.”
