FTN: Latest on Alexis Sanchez, Kylian Mbappe, Yannick Carrasco and Ilkay Gundogan
City Eye up Defensive Replacement
According to Laurie Whitwell of the Daily Mail, City will continue their quest to sign the England defender after Kompany’s departure was announced. The report claims that Maguire is Pep Guardiola’s top choice to replace Kompany.
However, City may need to pay more than the £75 million price tag Liverpool paid for Virgil van Dijk, given the defender signed a new five-year deal in September.
Alexis Sanchez to Leave Old Trafford?
30-year-old Alexis Sanchez is set to return from his holiday early in order to force a move from Manchester United. The Chile international has fallen out-of-favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and will look to get fit to earn a move away from the Red Devils.
Sanchez has suffered a poor season for United, scoring just once during the campaign and struggling with injuries. As a result, the Sun claim that the Chilean is desperate to leave Old Trafford and possibly even England.
Kylian Mbappe Open to PSG Departure
Mbappe, 20, won the World Cup with France last summer and, after receiving the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award, suggested that he would be open to leaving the French side. If the forward was to exit PSG, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City are all rumoured to be interested suitors.
Yannick Carrasco Close to Premier League Move
25-year-old Carrasco is keen on leaving China for the Premier League, according to The Sun. The Belgian impressed in the World Cup and came close to signing for Arsenal in January, only for the deal to fall through.
With reported interest from Manchester United and Arsenal, Carrasco said, “If I have the opportunity to go to England, why not?” when questioned about a move to the Premier League.
Extended Deal for Gundogan?
A new contract seemed unlikely after talks broke down in March. However, the German played a key role deputising the injured Fernandinho in a 14-game winning run which led to the Premier League title.
