Transfer news and rumours LIVE: PSG expect Neymar & Mbappe stay due to coronavirus

No deal yet between Dortmund and Meunier

Borussia Dortmund have yet to come to an agreement over a contract for PSG defender Thomas Meunier, reports Le10Sport.

The Belgian international will see his contract with PSG expire at the end of the season, and there were reports he had agreed a deal with the Bundesliga outfit.

But those reports were seemingly premature, with Everton, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid all still interested in Meunier's services.

Leicester keeping tabs on the 'next Kante'

Leicester City are keeping an eye on Angers midfielder Baptiste Santamaria, reports the Express.

The 25-year-old has been compared to N'Golo Kante, whom the Foxes signed from Caen in 2015 and then helped his side to an unlikely Premier League title the following year.

Leicester will hope lightning can strike twice with Santamaria, another defensive midfielder from an unfancied French side.

Fonseca wants Smalling to stay at Roma

Roma head coach Paulo Fonseca has said that he would like to see Chris Smalling stay beyond this season.

Smalling has impressed with Roma in 2019-20 while on a season-long loan from Manchester United.

Though it could be difficult to retain the 30-year-old, Fonseca is hopeful that the Giallorossi will find a way to keep him beyond this season.

Gabigol was never returning to Inter - agent

Gabriel 'Gabigol' Barbosa's agent has said that a return to Inter was never a realistic possibility for his client.

The 23-year-old spent just 12 months in Italy following his transfer from Santos in August 2016, scoring one goal in nine Serie A appearances.

After successful loans with Santos and Flamengo in his native Brazil, Gabigol joined Flamengo on a permanent deal in January for a reported €17 million (£15m/$18m).

PSG expect Neymar & Mbappe stay due to coronavirus

Transfer fees expected to drop in wake of pandemic.

Paris Saint-Germain believe they will be able to keep Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for another season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Transfer fees are expected to drop in the next transfer window because of the economic disruption caused by the spread of the disease.

PSG are not interested in selling their star duo and L’Equipe says the French champions have a good chance of keeping them for another season at least.

Inter refuse Barcelona exchange deal for Lautaro

Catalan side offer two defenders for Argentine striker.

Inter have rejected Barcelona’s offers to include Junior Firpo and Nelson Semedo as part of a deal for Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez.

Mundo Deportivo claims Barca offered the two defenders to help sweeten the deal and lower Inter’s asking price, but the Italians have refused.

Juventus decide to sell €50m Pjanic

Juventus are ready to sell Miralem Pjanic this summer, Calciomercato reports.

The Italian side believe the time is right to let the midfielder go as they can free space in the squad and retrieve a good price for him.

The Bianconeri expect to get around €50 million (£44m/$54m) for Pjanic.
