Barcelona set price tag on Chelsea target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Barcelona have placed a £21million price tag on Chelsea move target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as indicated by reports.

To do this, club authorities will offload three players, including Aubameyang.

Chelsea are known to be keen on signing the striker following the takeoffs of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.

However, new owner Todd Bohely should propose a huge expense to push the arrangement across the line.

According to Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, Barcelona will not entertain any offers less than £21m for Aubameyang.

The club want to receive at least half the fee they paid out to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich, which came to a total of £42.5m.

That is despite the fact that they signed Aubameyang on a FREE TRANSFER from Arsenal just eight months ago.

Real Madrid boss picks replacement as him set to rotate Modric more this season

With a World Cup to be played mid-season this year, Carlo Ancelotti plans to rotate Luka Modric more often in the 2022/23 term, Diario AS say.

The player who to replace him in the Real Madrid midfield – with Toni Kroos Casemiro still undisputed starters – would be Aurelien Tchouameni.

Notwithstanding him being a defensive midfielder normally, Ancelotti accepts the Frenchman can play higher up the pitch.

It would definitely be surprising to see the coach use Tchouameni in a more advanced role when he has options like Eduardo Camavinga and Dani Ceballos on the bench.

We already say Modric start on the bench in the first league game this season, with Camavinga playing in his place. However, the coach had to bring the veteran on already at halftime.
