Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is said to have had talks with Juventus about a possible decision this summer.
The future of the Manchester United midfielder is the source of persistent speculation amid ties with Real Madrid and Juventus.
Pogba, 27, fondly remembers the Old Lady’s followers after a scintillating spell at the club between 2012 and 2016, before returning to United for a record amount.
And now Le10Sport claims that Raiola has opened talks with Juve over a possible comeback, while Madrid remains attached to the winner of the World Cup in France.
Saul Niguez will be a Manchester United player this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Todo Fichajes says negotiations are “nearing completion” and the deal will be announced at the end of the Premier League and Liga campaigns.
It is said that the Red Devils see the Atletico Madrid star as the ideal replacement for Paul Pogba, and the coronavirus pandemic could mean that they could recover him for much less than expected.
Saul’s release clause with Atleti is £ 132 million, but they would now settle for £ 70 million.
Manchester United want to keep Odion Ighalo beyond the end of their loan agreement, which expires before the Premier League resumes next month.
Ighalo has scored four goals in eight games since joining the Red Devils in January temporarily from Shanghai Shenhua.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is known for wanting to bring a new center forward to Old Trafford.
But Sky Sports says that Ighalo’s impressive form means he can be the answer to Man United’s scorer problem.
Manchester United are expected to rekindle interest in Naples defender Kalidou Koulibaly after discovering that Liverpool wanted to sign it.
Koulibaly was strongly linked to a £ 100m transfer to Old Trafford before the club brought Harry Maguire for £ 80m to Leicester last summer.
However, the Senegalese international could form a solid defensive partnership with Maguire if he decides to join United.
Gazzetta dello Sport says Liverpool’s interest prompted United to look back on a decision to make a lot of money for him.
Adama Traoré would be a summer transfer target for Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City.
The Wolves star has been one of the best high-flying players this season with four goals and seven assists.
He became a regular on their team after starting just five league games last season following an 18 million pound move from Middlesbrough.
Le10sport says big guns in the Premier League are interested in signing Traore valued at £ 70 million.
It looks like Manchester United won the race to sign Jadon Sancho with reports that the details of his transfer to Old Trafford are “almost agreed”.
The Sun says the Borussia Dortmund striker wants to join the Red Devils three years after leaving their local rivals, Man City, and that his contract term, salary, bonuses and buyout clause have all been agreed.
Months of secret talks have reportedly taken place between the two sides, and now United must reach an agreement with Dortmund on the costs.
It is expected to go well beyond £ 100 million, and this value is likely to increase as Chelsea and Liverpool could start a bidding war amid their interest in Sancho.
BVB will make an astounding profit on Sancho when it is sold, after signing it in 2017 for only £ 8 million from City.
United also allegedly offered Sancho the number seven jersey in an attempt to tempt him at the club.
Flop Alexis Sanchez currently holds this number, but his days at Old Trafford seem almost over.
The Mirror claims that United is working hard to reach an agreement for Borussia Dortmund and the English winger Sancho and thinks that giving him the number 7 could convince him.
Man United has taken a step forward in its attempts to recruit Birmingham prodigy Jude Bellingham – saying he will be a first-team player immediately after joining the Red Devils.
Bellingham, who is not 17 before the end of next month, is one of the best-rated youngsters in English football and is attracting interest from across Europe.
The teenage midfielder was billed as a “young Steven Gerrard”, and clubs like United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund all kept an eye on him.
Man United wants to sign with Monaco’s left-back Fode Ballo-Toure.
Red Devils first choice left back Luke Shaw has suffered injuries since he broke his leg in 2015.
And the former Ballo-Touré, a graduate of the Academy of Paris Saint-Germain, who joined Monaco from Lille in January 2019, would be on the radar of United.
The 23-year-old played 21 games while Monaco finished ninth in the 2019/20 Ligue 1 table.
Journalist Duncan Castles told the Transfer Window podcast, “The player Man United is watching is Fode Ballo-Toure.
“He is a 23-year-old left-back. He is an exceptionally fast and very powerful player, has a lot of physical endurance and seems to me to have a very good profile for English football from a physical point of view.
“In addition, I was told that he was an excellent character, so there is a belief that he would go well from the French game to the English game and would not have an adaptation process as long as some players when they change country. “
Chelsea are confident of signing Manchester United starlet Angel Gomes, according to reports.
The 19-year-old, whose contract with him at Old Trafford expires this summer, has made only six appearances for the Red Devils this season.
The Mirror says Gomes wants assurances from United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team before committing to a new long-term contract.
He could imagine his chances at Chelsea, with manager Frank Lampard known for giving young people a chance.
Ed Woodward says Man United remains committed to supporting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and expects the club to continue to be “very competitive” in the transfer market.
Woodward told a fan forum, “It’s always a top priority for us to build the team and build on what Ole is doing very clearly in terms of bringing us to the top. But we need to be clear about what the future holds.
“What will happen with the rest of this season? What is the impact on next season? Is it behind closed doors or in front of fans? What is the impact on dissemination agreements, sponsorship agreements? What is the impact on national cups? Etc.
“There are many, many moving parts. It won’t necessarily be the status quo for clubs this summer.
“It seems somewhat inappropriate to see speculation about transfers for hundreds of millions under the current circumstances.
“There is a big disconnect between these stories and the economic realities facing football clubs in general.
“It is clear that we are fortunate to be in a good financial position compared to many clubs, but we are not immune to the financial impact of what this virus does.
“I would say that once we have the visibility of a path through the crisis and come out on the other side of relative normality, then of course we aim to remain very competitive in the market.
“As I have said before and have said many times – we remain committed to supporting Ole to win trophies. This is our main goal as a club.”
Manchester United joined the race for Dayot Upamecano, according to France Football.
Arsenal have made the RB Leipzig man a prime target but could miss due to financial problems.
This left the door open to United, whose Upamecano visited the training facilities before joining Salzburg in 2016.
The Frenchman has a £ 53 million release clause, but could be allowed to leave for less since he is in the final year of his contract.
Reports add that Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City are also keen.
Real Madrid and Barcelona will be looking to sign Man United’s Marcus Rashford in the future, Clinton Morrison told talkSPORT.
He said, “I think it will just go from strength to strength to strength.
“Mark my words, I think a club like Barcelona or Real Madrid will strike because I think it is an exceptional talent and it is mentally strong.
“For such a young person, he played a lot of football. He is mentally strong. He is an excellent player. You need things like this in your career that you can bounce back from.
“He went out and said that Jose Mourinho had somehow helped him because you want such situations to occur in your career where you become mentally strong.”
“But, to me, Rashford is one of the best footballers of the moment.”
James Maddison insists that he is happy in Leicester despite his ties to several other big clubs.
Manchester United are known to be big fans of the Foxes midfielder.
He said, “I feel at home in Leicester.
“I already feel like part of the furniture and I love it here.
“I love the guys, I love the fans, (we have) a great manager, so I’m very, very happy.”
Borussia Dortmund wanted Mason Greenwood back when Manchester United tried to sign Jadon Sancho last summer.
The Red Devils tried to attract the ace of England to the Premier League after his incredible form in Germany.
Accommodating at ESPN, Dortmund called for including Greenwood in a swap agreement for Sancho.
But United made it clear that they were not ready to use the 18-year-old as a mason in the movement.
Harry Maguire praised the impact of the signing of Man United, Bruno Fernandes.
The Portuguese hit the ground while running in England before the lockout was crowned Premier League player in February.
Maguire said: “He’s brilliant since he came out of the field around the training ground, he’s a leader and wants to win, whatever he does, he wants to win, you can say he was raised with this attitude.
“It just gave us a little bit more life and creativity in the middle, something (experts) and United fans said we have missed it over the years.”
Bad news for Manchester United fans, reports Tottenham no plans to sell their talisman this summer.
The Red Devils have long been linked to Kane and weekend reports suggest that Daniel Levy had put a price tag of 200 million pounds from the English captain.
It seems that now no agreement to move it away from north London will be reached in the next transfer window.
