Christian Eriksen

Tottenham Hotspur have resigned to losing the services of playmaker Christian Eriksen next year with his contract gradually coming to an end.

He has just over six months on his current Spurs’ contract.

According to The Sun, Christian Eriksen has turned down a new contract offer from Tottenham Hotspur.

It was revealed that Spurs offered him a new deal worth £150,000 on a weekly basis and the said offer was rejected by the player.

Danish international Christian Eriksen was linked with a move from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer when he had one year remaining on his contract but the player stayed on for this season.

Recent reports claimed that the former Ajax Amsterdam star is targeting a possible free transfer move next summer rather than leave Spurs for another club during the winter transfer window in January.

Spurs officials had been hoping that the arrival of Jose Mourinho as manager will alter the player’s decision but it seems the Danish national team playmaker has made up his mind on leaving last season’s Champions League finalists.

Manchester United are strongly keen on a transfer for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen and the Red Devils are the only ones in the running to sign him.

Real Madrid and Inter Milan also interested  in him.

Bruno Fernandes

The proposed transfer of Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United is in serious doubt according to Darren Fletcher.

Fletcher said on BBC Live that the Portuguese international might stay at Sporting Lisbon beyond this month after his club made a new demand for the player to join Manchester United.

According to him, Sporting Lisbon want more money for Bruno Fernandes for the £60m transfer to go through.

Manchester United want to pay a lesser fee of around £50m to £55m for the player who previously played for both Udinese and Sampdoria in the Italian Serie A.

He joined Sporting Lisbon from Sampdoria FC of Italy around two years ago.

Tottenham Hotspur had a £45m bid turned down for Bruno Fernandes last summer which saw him linked with the Red Devils as well.

Manchester United will have to manage the midfield options at their disposal if they are unable to agree a transfer fee for Bruno Fernandes though young Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare is also a serious target for the Old Trafford side.

Chelsea and Manchester United are the only two clubs in the race for Boubakary Soumare after the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal and Valencia dropped out of the race for him.

Bruno Fernandes

Key Sporting Lisbon player Bruno Fernandes launched a tirade towards club president Fernando Varandas on the phone after the player was told that his dream move to Manchester United is off.

This is according to journalist Duncan Castles who’s the co-presenter of Reach Plc’s Transfer Window Podcast.

According to him, Bruno Fernandes was told on Thursday night that he won’t be joining Manchester United who have failed to match the asking price from Sporting Lisbon for the player who was part of the Portugal team that won the UEFA Nations League last year.

Bruno Fernandes and Portugal won the debut UEFA Nations League via the 1-0 win over the Netherlands in the final.

The Sporting Lisbon skipper delivered the assist for the winning goal of the game scored by Goncalo Guedes.

Duncan Castles said that Manchester United have offered £42.6m for Bruno Fernandes which is a far cry from the £60m valuation slapped on the player by Sporting Lisbon.

The Manchester United offer is said to include £25.6m in add-ons.

Bruno Fernandes is a long-term target for the Red Devils dating back to last year.

Tottenham Hotspur were also interested in him but they are no longer in the race after the loan signing of Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes.

Manchester United will have to act fast to see off the interest of the Spanish duo of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the bid to sign Fabian Ruiz from Napoli.

According to Fox Sports Asia, Manchester United are keen to do a deal for Spanish international Fabian Ruiz this month as they try to ease their midfield worries before the business end of the current season.

Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay are long-term injury absentees for Manchester United and that has forced the club into the transfer market.

Both Pogba and McTominay are not ready to return to the Manchester United squad until next month at least.

Pogba has been struggling with an ankle problem all season, while Scotland international Scott McTominay has a knee injury.

Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz has been a key performer for underperforming Italian Serie A outfit since joining from La Liga club Real Betis at the start of the last campaign for £30m.

His quality has led to the interest of both Barcelona and Real Madrid who are keeping tabs on his career in Italy.

Moussa Dembele

The Premier League trio of Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have been given a big transfer boost in their pursuit of Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

According to French publication L’Equipe, Lyon have agreed a deal to sign a striker from the Spanish La Liga and this new development has given the aforementioned British clubs small hope in their quest to sign Dembele.

Lyon have already released a statement to shut down recent transfer rumours that Moussa Dembele will leave the club this month.

The statement was before Lyon agreed a loan deal to sign Karl Toko Ekambi on loan with the obligation to sign him permanently in a £17m deal.

The Karl Toko Ekambi transfer could be to complement Moussa Dembele in the Lyon attack rather than replace the French striker especially with star player Memphis Depay still out with a long-term injury.

Depay has been injured since the end of last year and the Netherlands is not expected to return to full fitness anytime soon.

Moussa Dembele has been the go-to man for Lyon this season especially in the absence of the injury-stricken Depay.

He is the topscorer in the French top flight with 11 goals this season.
