Matteo Moretto Transfer Column: Leny Yoro, Barcelona dressing room to Xavi chaos and Sevilla manager search

Mateo Moreto gives Football España exclusive information on the latest deals dominating the newspapers in Spain, as revealed in Fabrizio Romano's daily briefing.

Maurizio Sarri's new club is not close despite receiving four offers

The truth is that Sarri has no progress with any club at the moment, as far as I know. Bologna asked about him as a potential replacement for Thiago Motta, and Sevilla also asked about him, but the truth is that he is waiting for an offer and a project that he is keen on.

On Monday, Sarri gave an interview where he expressed that he had four offers from clubs abroad. He has been linked with Milan a lot, but I can rule him out as an option at San Siro. I think he is waiting to see what might happen in the market, but there are no advanced negotiations at the moment.

Sevilla have former Unai Emery assistant on their shortlist for the managerial position

Sevilla were interested in the departure of Osasuna coach Jagoba Arrasate, but he gave his word to the Mallorca club that he would come in to replace Javier Aguirre as long as they were not relegated to the second division. On Sunday night, they got the safety, so it looks like he will finally go to Mallorca. Sevilla tried to get him and tried to hijack the deal, but as long as Mallorca didn't lose, Arrasate was happy to go there.

Now Sevilla are still searching for their next candidate. Torino coach Ivan Juric has been talked about a lot, but I have no information that Sevilla will sign him. Then Sari was revealed, but things went no further.

They have a shortlist, but it is very open to change, as can be seen with Sarri and Juric, who are not currently in the running mode. One of the different names being considered is former Granada and Sevilla Atletico coach Diego Martinez, but he is one of several names, and no decision has been made yet.

Barcelona players are in shock over rumors regarding Xavi Hernandez's future

It is difficult to know what is happening with Xavi Hernandez yet, they will talk next week, but it is not an exaggeration to say that anything can happen. It remains true that Xavi has given no indication that the situation has changed.

Right now, there are players in Barcelona's dressing room in shock, not knowing what to think. There are different dynamics at play, for example, if you have Xavi there, you know that he will give young players a chance, and that he trusts Robert Lewandowski. But it's more about the atmosphere, before everything seemed like Xavi was continuing, now there are doubts.

One case to logically keep an eye on is Vitor Roque. The Brazilian has not had much playing time, and his situation could change depending on the manager.

How much are Real Madrid willing to spend on Lille sensation Lenny Euro?

There are Paris Saint-Germain and Premier League clubs that are interested in competing with Real Madrid, and they do not want to spend big money on Lenny Euros. At a 'reasonable' price they would be happy to do business, but the reality is that Real Madrid would likely offer less than €40m for a euro.

There is no doubt that Lille are asking a lot (€60 million, according to multiple reports from others), but the economic aspect of the deal remains important for Real Madrid. They are not going to throw money out the window for a boy, despite his brilliance, and even if Real Madrid are his priority, he is out of contract in 2025. So it could be difficult.

Matteo Moretto will be back with more transfer news in the coming days, providing exclusive information on the biggest stories in Spain and Italy.
