Transfer news UPDATES: Man Utd reach £50m AGREEMENT, Liverpool plan for Mohamed Salah exit

PSG eye Barca duo in Neymar swap

Paris Saint-Germain have asked for Barcelona forwards Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho to be included in any deal for wantaway superstar Neymar.

That’s the claim of Spanish publication Sport.

Neymar is apparently unhappy in France, and is even said to have told PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he regrets leaving Barca and wants to return.

But with PSG unwilling to sell, it is likely to take a monstrous bid to allow a deal to go through.

PSG have asked for Dembele on loan with an option to buy, and Coutinho on a permanent deal.

Matthijs de Ligt chooses Juventus

Matthijs De Ligt has rejected the chance to join Manchester United or Barcelona after agreeing a five-year deal with Juventus, despite earlier contrasting reports.

That’s according to Sky Sports in Italy, who claim that a deal could be completed in the coming days.

De Ligt will apparently sign a deal worth €12million-a-year (£10.75m) for five seasons in Turin, after being offered half of that by Barca.

His release clause is set to be a staggering £135m, nearly double the current all-time record for a defender.

Bruno Fernandes next for Man Utd

Manchester United could make Bruno Fernandes their third summer signing once Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s move is confirmed, but it depends heavily on whether Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba leave the club.

That is according to Sky Sports transfer man Kaveh Solhekol.

“A lot of their transfer strategy depends on what happens with [Pogba and Lukaku],” he said.

“But other players will be coming in to United. The next one, if not Maguire, could be Bruno Fernandes.

“The Sporting midfield player has been playing so well for Portugal. A lot of big clubs are after him and his agent says that United have been in touch.”

Wan-Bissaka touches down

Manchester United are edging closer to the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Crystal Palace right-back has landed in Manchester after a short journey by private jet, according to BBC journalist David Ornstein.

The 21-year-old will undergo some scans this evening before undergoing a full medical tomorrow.

The Red Devils are expected to pay £50million for Wan-Bissaka with wages of £80k per-week.

“Crystal Palace and England U21 right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka has landed in Manchester by private jet to complete the formalities of his £50m move to Manchester United. 21yo will have some scans tonight before undergoing a full medical + finalising his contract tomorrow,” Ornstein tweeted.

Bayern eye Dembele

Bayern Munich are considering a surprise move for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele.

The Catalan giants paid an initial £96million for Dembele in August 2017 and that could rise to £135m in performance-related add-ons.

But the France international’s future is uncertain amid rumours that Neymar could soon return to the Nou Camp.

And German publication Bild claim the Bundesliga champions are interested in securing his signature.

Mohamed Salah exit worry

Liverpool think Mohamed Salah will leave next summer and Jurgen Klopp wants Nicolas Pepe to replace him, it has been claimed.

The Egypt international has been a huge Anfield hit ever since arriving from Roma back in the summer of 2017.

But journalist Duncan Castles has sensationally claimed that Liverpool believe Salah may leave next summer.

“I think it would help them to have another top-level forward of the similar type to Salah and Mane, and Nicolas Pepe is the clear candidate there,” he said on The Transfer Window podcast.

“Just to put a marker down, I think there’s an expectation that Mo Salah might not be at Liverpool in a year’s time.

“From what I hear, Liverpool might not be entirely against that, in the sense that if Salah has another sensational season and they’re able to sell him to a Real Madrid or a Barcelona or a Paris St-Germain for €200m-plus, which would obviously be the asking price for a player of his quality, then they would have a replacement.”
