In today’s edition, find out which Juventus player Manchester United ask for instead of Paulo Dybala. Meanwhile, a Portuguese star could be on his way to Old Trafford. Will Real Madrid be able to sign Paul Pogba? And Everton look set to sign a young striker from Serie A.
Latest Transfer Rumours
United Eye Douglas Costa Over Dybala
Alvise Cagnazzo of Mail Online reports that Manchester United want Douglas Costa instead of Paulo Dybala in any deal for Romelu Lukaku. United have shown past interest in both attackers and originally wanted Dybala included in the deal. However, the Argentine striker now looks set to have talks with Maurizio Sarri over his future in Turin.
As such, United are eyeing Costa, a Brazil international, instead. However, he could be as unwilling as Dybala to leave, having undergone his own pre-season regime this summer. Inter Milan, meanwhile, are still working on a deal for Lukaku.
Fernandes To Become ‘New Red Devil’
Arnau Montserrat of Sport claims that Bruno Fernandes in on the verge of joining Manchester United. He claims that it is a ‘matter of hours’ until the deal is completed, with an agreement reached with Sporting Lisbon. United will pay €70 million to land the Portuguese star, who lit up La Liga Nos last year.
Fernandes scored 32 goals and assisted 18 more in 53 appearances last season, making him one of the most dangerous players in world football. The player has expressed his desire to play in the Premier League, and a move seems imminent.
Bale Exit Paves Way For Pogba Move
According to Mike McGrath of The Sun, Real Madrid will make a last-minute move to sign Paul Pogba, after offloading Gareth Bale. This departure will free up £600,000 a week’s worth in wages. This could allow Zinedine Zidane to make a £150 million move for Paul Pogba before the English transfer window closes. However, any move to China for Bale is off, according to reports.
Madrid have already spent £300 million on new players this summer, revamping the squad to take back La Liga and Champions League titles. Zidane thinks that he can get the best out of the Frenchman, whose Manchester United career has had his peaks and troughs.
Kean Could Be On His Way To Goodison
Sky Sources understand that Everton are in talks to sign Moise Kean from Juventus. The Old Lady are demanding £36 million for the 19-year-old Italian striker, but want to include a buy-back clause in any deal. Everton are looking for a new striker after letting Ademola Lookman leave to RB Leipzig.
Kean scored six goals in 13 Serie A appearances last season and the Toffees see him as ideal to lead their line. They are still tracking Wilfried Zaha, but it seems Moise Kean is a priority for them at this moment in time.
