Everton Soares

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.

Ismaila Sarr

Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has given his go ahead for the club to bid for Watford winger Ismaila Sarr according to journalist IndyKaila.

Ismaila Sarr was part of the Watford squad that suffered relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2019/20 season.

The Senegalese international signed for the Hornets at the start of the aforementioned season.

Manchester United have submitted a £41.7m bid for Sarr as per the report via the previously mentioned journalist. He made this known through his official Twitter account.

The Daily Telegraph had earlier disclosed that the Red Devils made a bid for the player and they were told by Watford that Sarr will only leave the club on loan and that it will take at least £40m to prise him away.

Ismaila Sarr was one of the best players at Watford in the last campaign with an output of 5 goals and 6 assists in 22 Premier League appearances.

Liverpool were interested in the Senegalese player before they opted for Diogo Jota.

Manchester United are in the market for a right-wing specialist and Ismaila Sarr is their alternative target for the position.

Jadon Sancho of German side Borussia Dortmund is the main target but his club is proving to be difficult.

In-form Premier League side Everton are keen to bring Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma back to the club before the end of this transfer window.

This is according to French news outlet Le 10 Sport which stated that the Toffees want to reinforce their defensive options with the signing of Kurt Zouma who spent a successful loan spell at the club during the 2018/19 campaign.

French international Zouma played 32 league games at Everton under manager Marco Silva during the 2018/19 season.

Kurt Zouma is the second Chelsea centre back to be linked with Carlo Ancelotti and Everton.

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori was previously a target for Everton but it looks like the Nigerian-born England international will be staying at Stamford Bridge for this season.

The Blues want to sell a centre back this summer after the free transfer acquisition of Brazilian player Thiago Silva.

He left PSG to join the Blues after the expiration of his contract with the French champions.

His arrival has left central defenders like Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Fikayo Tomori fighting to stay at Chelsea.

Centre backs Thiago Silva and Andreas Christensen started the Premier League clash at West Brom at the weekend as the Blues were forced to a 3-3 draw by the Premier League newcomers.

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter is keen to work with Manchester United winger Daniel James again according to the latest transfer reports in the British media.

Graham Potter worked with Welsh international Daniel James at Swansea City before both parties left the English Championship side.

Daniel James played 33 league games in the English Championship under Graham Potter during the 2018/19 season and his performances for the Welsh team prompted the Red Devils to sign him last summer in an £18m deal.

Graham Potter was also appointed the Brighton & Hove Albion boss during the same summer.

Daniel James started his career at Manchester United well before it fizzled out towards the winter part of last season.

The Athletic claimed that Graham Potter and Brighton are plotting a loan move for the Red Devils winger.

The player has already lost his place in the starting XI at Manchester United and the arrival of another winger could push him further down the pecking order as far as the right wing position at Manchester United is concerned.

The Red Devils have been linked with wingers such as Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund, Ismaila Sarr of Watford and many more.

Leeds United are also interested in signing James on loan.

Reigning Premier League champions Liverpool have inserted a buyback clause of £40m into the contract of young striker Rhian Brewster who’s closing in on an exit from the club.

This was revealed by Liverpool correspondent IndyKaila.

According to him, Rhian Brewster is close to signing for Sheffield United in a £20m transfer.

The Blades have been in discussion with Liverpool over the England u-21 striker.

Sheffield United initially wanted a loan deal for the player but Liverpool were adamant that Rhian Brewster will only leave the club on a permanent deal.

Other Premier League sides like Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion are also keen to sign the 20-year-old who shone for Swansea City in the English Championship last term.

Rhian Brewster scored 10 goals in just 20 games for Swansea City while he was on loan for the second part of the last campaign.

Swansea City are also interested in re-signing him but the second tier club can’t compete with the Premier League teams for his signature.

Rhian Brewster is closing in on a transfer to Sheffield United at the moment as Blades boss Chris Wilder bolsters his squad upfront.

Sheffield United are still waiting for their first goal in the Premier League this season.

Man United were earlier reported to be ahead in the race to sign Argentina international wonderkid Alex Luna but they are set to be overtaken by Arsenal with interest already shown.

Alex Luna is the talk in town across Europe for many agents as he has been impressive with Rafaela, especially with his outing in the last season before it was ended by the Coronavirus Pandemic.

A report by AS which cited MilanLive, claims that the 16-year-old is attracting interest from the North London outfit while Man United and Man City are also making moves to land him.

Italian Serie A outfit AS Milan are also in the race for Alex Luna alongside Juventus but Man United and Arsenal have been favoured for the deal if he is to leave his current club in Argentina.

However, due to his age, Alex Luna will not be able to leave Argentina until he is 18 even if he agrees on a deal with any club now.

With every possibility that Alex Luna will be heading straight to the first team of the club he will eventually sign for, his suitors will not get him any cheap because of how highly valued he is.

Kalidou Koulibaly

Man United and Man City have been linked with the signature of Senegal international Kalidou Koulibaly but it has been confirmed that they will no longer sign him this summer transfer window.

The two Manchester clubs have struggled this season with their defence as a major flaw. There have been efforts to bring in defenders but that has not had any breakthrough since the summer transfer window was opened.

Man City were reported to have agreed on personal terms with Kalidou Koulibaly and expected to conclude with Italian Serie A outfit Napoli for a deal but that never happened.

The Italian Serie A outfit’s Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has now come out to state that the player will be staying at the club this season.

The sporting director made it clear that some players will be leaving the team this summer window but Kalidou Koulibaly will not be part of them while stressing that they now have a complete team to challenge for titles this season.

However, all Kalidou Koulibaly’s suitors were discouraged by his valuation of £80 million which Napoli were not willing to negotiate. Most clubs, especially Man United could not meet with the fee which means the player will remain with the club for another season.

There are few days left to the end of this current transfer window but a lot is expected to happen at Man United, inclining the signing of new players and the sale of old ones.

The Red Devils have so far, had very slow transfer activity which have made it one to forget by the fans as they have only secured the signature of Donny van de Beek from Ajax despite being linked with a number of players.

While everyone waits for what happens before the end of the summer transfer window, Andreas Pereira has been tipped to leave the Old Trafford for the Italian Serie A outfit Lazio in the coming days.

It is reported that the 24-year-old will move out on a loan deal for the whole season but the seal will include an option to buy clause for a fee of £24-6 million.

The deal will also include a 10 percent sell-on fee when he becomes a Lazio player in the future, according to reports.

Andreas Pereira has not made the mark expected of him at the Old Trafford and that keeps him out of being favoured by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for selection.

He is expected to find his form and mojo when he leaves the Red Devils for another environment, with the hope that he can be handed regular playing time.
