Donny Van Der Beek

Manchester United are reportedly set to compete with La Liga giants Real Madrid for the services of 22-year-old midfielder Donny Van de Beek in the next transfer market.

The Ajax versatile midfielder is currently linked with a move out of the Eredivisie side following his explosive performances in Ajax’s awesome Champions League display last season and the two European giants are regarded as his probable destinations.

United, who are uncertain over their chances of having Paul Pogba at Old Trafford beyond January, are reportedly interested in the Dutchman whom Solskjaer sees as the perfect man to replace the Frenchman.

United were earlier credited with an intense interest in the player’s service in the summer but the Reds Devils surprisingly pulled out of the race for his signature due to Ajax’s £35m price tag.

Real manager Zinedine Zidane has equally shown interest in the youngster and the Frenchman is reportedly ready to do everything possible to beat Solskjaer to his service.

Meanwhile, United board members are beginning to lose their faith in Solskjaer’s coaching abilities due to the team’s dismal start to the campaign.

Solskjaer who has gone six matches without a win in all competitions is definitely under pressure and the Glazers could be forced to show him the exit door before the end of the year.

Timo Werner

Chelsea might lose out to Premier League rivals Liverpool in the race to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner who has painted the German Bundesliga with goals this season.

This is according to German publication Bild which stated that Timo Werner prefers a move to Liverpool over Chelsea.

It was revealed that the German international wants a transfer to the Premier League this summer which is a plus to both Liverpool and Chelsea.

Timo Werner was initially linked with a January move to the Premier League only for him to confirm that he’ll be staying with RB Leipzig throughout this season.

The petite German attacker has been in red-hot form for RB Leipzig who are at the summit in the top flight of German football.

RB Leipzig have a four-point lead at the top of the German Bundesliga table after 18 games and Timo Werner has contributed immensely to that achievement.

Werner has scored 20 goals in the league this season which is more than any other player in the division and alongside Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski who also has 20 goals to his name.

In total, Timo Werner has scored 25 goals in 25 games for his club who are also in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Christian Eriksen

According to FCInter News, Inter Milan have already set a medical date for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen as they close in on the signing of the player also linked to both Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Christian Eriksen waited for a transfer to Real Madrid last summer but it didn’t come through until that transfer window ended. He snubbed a move to Manchester United while waiting on Real Madrid at the start of this season.

Inter Milan have already made a bid for the 28-year-old Danish international playmaker which is nearer to the €20m (£17m) valuation from North London club Tottenham Hotspur and are confident that the player will have his medical by Thursday.

It was revealed that Inter Milan are keen for the player to wrap up the move before weekend just in time for the upcoming league clash at home to Cagliari.

Inter Milan have already dropped behind in the title race after two successive draws and three points is almost non-negotiable if they want to end the reign of Juventus in Italian football.

Juventus have won the last eight league titles and they are on course for another title after opening a four-point lead over Inter Milan though Lazio have a game in hand and a win from the game would see them move within three points of the Old Lady.
