English Premier League outfit Man United have been tipped to capture the signature of Ajax starlet Dillon Hoogewerf in the coming summer transfer window.

Reports claim that Dillon Hoogewerf could be parting ways with Ajax this season and already fancy a move to the Old Trafford ahead of the coming season.

Dillon Hoogewerf is just 16 but he has shown big quality as a forward and has the ability to play in a number roles up front which would be an added advantage to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should he eventually consider Dillon Hoogewerf for a first team role.

Ajax chief and head of youth academy, Said

Ouaali has admitted that Dillon Hoogewerf’s exit would be a big blow to the club as he has done all in his power to convince the youngster to remain at the club.

However, the Red Devils seem to have identified Ajax as a team with young players especially now that they have produced a 19-year-old defender De Ligt who has been on the wanted list for a number of top European sides.

The quality in the Ajax team helped them reached the semi-finals of the Champions League after eliminating Juventus and Real Madrid.

Paul Pogba

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly ready to force through his exit from the club during this summer’s transfer window.

This is according to new reports emanating from the media in Spain amidst the strong interest from Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid.

The Los Merengues have made Paul Pogba their top midfield target this summer but Manchester United are reluctant to let their best player leave the club this summer.

According to Spanish media outlet ABC, French World Cup winner Pogba has concluded plans to go on strike to secure his dream move to Real Madrid if Manchester United don’t want to let him leave the club.

Paul Pogba has previously talked up the possibility of playing for Real Madrid under the guidance of French football legend Zinedine Zidane.

Recent reports claimed that Zidane personally fought for the potential signing of Pogba ahead of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen despite the fact that the Frenchman would be a more expensive acquisition.

Paul Pogba re-signed for Manchester United three years ago for a then world-record fee of £89m after he had spent four successful years as a Juventus player.

The 26-year-old joined Juventus in the summer of 2012 from Manchester United on a free transfer before going on to win four Italian Serie A titles in a row.

North London giants Arsenal have reportedly been prised out of a move for Dalian Yifang winger Yannick-Ferreira Carrasco.

This is according to the publication from The Sun which claimed that the Gunners can’t afford the asking price of one of their transfer targets.

It was revealed that Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang are demanding £30m for Carrasco who’s keen to leave Asia for Europe this summer.

The new development is a far cry from recent reports which claimed that the Gunners are closing in on a move for the former AS Monaco and Atletico Madrid player.

In his recent interview, Carrasco confirmed that an offer is on the table from an unnamed European club which many believed is Arsenal.

The Belgian international left Atletico Madrid for China in February 2018 but he’s keen to return to European football after failing to adapt to life in the Asian country.

Yannick-Ferreira Carrasco was linked with Arsenal and the Milan clubs, Inter and AC Milan, during the winter transfer window but his Chinese club was not willing to release him.

The 25-year-old is more determined to leave Dalian Yifang this summer but it remains to be seen whether Arsenal will be able to reach an agreement for his transfer.

Harry Maguire

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly ready to pay the asking price of £80m for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.

According to The Sun, Manchester United chief executive, Ed Woodward is ready to give in to the hefty financial demands of Leicester City who have slammed the aforementioned transfer fee on the England international centre back.

Manchester United want to sign a new quality centre back and Harry Maguire is said to be the number one candidate for the job after the Red Devils were snubbed by Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt.

The former European champions were said to have offered De Ligt a lucrative deal worth £350,000 on a weekly basis in addition to £75m in transfer fee only for him to opt for the European duo of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Barcelona.

The 19-year-old is expected to join one of the two clubs between now and the end of the transfer window.

For Manchester United, the priority is to get it right this summer having already missed out on Harry Maguire last summer when they shunned the £60m to £70m asking price only for the Foxes to ask for more this summer.

The Red Devils wanted to sign the former Sheffield United and Hull City player shortly after last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

Uruguayan international Lucas Torreira has emerged as a top transfer target for AC Milan this summer.

The 23-year-old is presently with the Uruguayan national team at the ongoing COPA America tournament in Brazil.

Uruguay is bidding for a first COPA America title in eight years and Lucas Torreira is expected to be a big part of that quest for glory.

Lucas Torreira is an important player for Arsenal having joined the Gunners from Italian top flight club Sampdoria last summer.

Ivorian international Frank Kessie has spent the last two seasons on loan at AC Milan from fellow Italian Serie A club Atalanta with the obligation to sign him for £30m this summer.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mirror which claimed that Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona will complete a deal worth £150m for French World Cup winner Griezmann.

The said fee includes the transfer fee and his wages.

It was also revealed that Barcelona skipper and talisman Lionel Messi personally put a call through to Antoine Griezmann to talk to him about moving to the Nou Camp.

Three-time European champions Manchester United and French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have also tried to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer but the two clubs will miss out on his signing to Barcelona.

Atletico Madrid star Griezmann came close to joining Barcelona last summer but he decided to stay with the Rojiblancos and also sign a new contract.

The Frenchman could have left Atletico Madrid for Barcelona shortly after he played a big role for France in their World Cup winning feat in Russia last summer.

French national team star Griezmann will finally get his wish to sign for Barcelona one year later thanks partly to the intervention of Lionel Messi as mentioned above.

Gremio striker Everton Soares has talked about the prospect of playing for Premier League giants Manchester United this summer.

In a chat with the Daily Mail, the 23-year-old Brazilian international spoke about how his playing style will suit the style at Manchester United and the other interested clubs.

He had earlier brushed off transfer rumours surrounding him before responding when pressed further about the clubs keen to sign him this summer.

Apart from Manchester United, Premier League champions Manchester City, seven-time European champions AC Milan and French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) also want to sign him.

Everton reacted to questions about the aforementioned transfer rumours shortly after he made a goalscoring impact for the Brazilian national team.

The Gremio striker came off the bench for the Selecao during their 2019 COPA America opener against Bolivia.

He came on as an 81st-minute substitute for Ajax Amsterdam forward David Neres with Brazil leading 2-0 courtesy a pair of second-half goals from Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Everton added a third and final strike for Brazil in what was the goal of the game four minutes after coming on as a second half substitute.

Interested clubs like Manchester United will have to pay between £27m and £36m which is a far cry from his £71m release clause.

Gremio president Romildo Junior had earlier stated that interested clubs must pay the full release clause.

Matthijs de Ligt has been in the news for many weeks as he is being linked to a number of big teams in Europe after impressing in the just concluded season.

The likes of Man United, Liverpool, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are all linked with the star player but no decision has been made until after his engagement with the national team.

Darren Bent told the Daily Star that his former team are desperate and will go all out to surprise everyone to seal the deal in this summer window.

Premier League club West Ham United have moved closer to the signing of one of the midfield targets with Arsenal after Spanish club Eibar accepted a £13m bid for Joan Jordan.

This is according to Sky Sports who also confirmed that Spanish La Liga giants Valencia have had a £13m bid accepted for the 24-year-old.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for Joan Jordan as they search for a replacement for Aaron Ramsey but the North Londoners are yet to make a concrete offer for the Eibar player who has made 75 appearances for his club in the last two seasons.

Arsenal will have to do without Aaron Ramsey who has left the club after his contract expired.

The 28-year-old will join Juventus on a free transfer ahead of the new season after he agreed on a four-year contract worth £400,000 on a weekly basis.

Welsh international Ramsey was an Arsenal player for one decade.

Joan Jordan is on the verge of becoming the fourth summer signing at West Ham United who have already made four transfers as at the early stage of this summer’s transfer window.

West Ham have signed goalkeepers David Martin and Roberto as well as midfielder Pablo Fornals.

Why Man United will lose in Lukaku’s Inter Milan transfer

There seem to be nothing beneficial for Man United in the expected move of Belgium international striker Romelu Lukaku from the club to Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan aside the fee that would be paid.

Romelu Lukaku had a frustrating last season and has opted to leave the club by declaring his love for Serie A, while Inter Milan new manager Antonio Conte is also a fan of the striker.

The Red Devils had, therefore, made an arrangement to snap up another player in addition to the fee that would be paid but that will not happen as it has been rejected.

An attempt by Man United to have included defender Milan Skriniar in a potential deal was rejected, according to reports in Italy.

Man United are desperate to rebuild their team and have a need for defenders with the Inter Milan player tipped to be a good deal for the club but that hope is ended.

This remains a blow to the Red Devils knowing that the demand of £75 million for the Belgium international would not be met by the Serie A outfit.

However, it is expected that negotiations would only be centered on the 26-year-old for a deal.
