Manchester United are resigned to losing Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen who has set his sights on moving to a foreign club rather than sign for another Premier League club in this window.
Christian Eriksen had the choice of Manchester United and Inter Milan before the Danish international player opted for the Italians.
He prefers a move to the Italian Serie A overstaying in the Premier League with Manchester United.
According to FCInterNews, Manchester United have had a €23m bid accepted for the player who has six months left on his Tottenham Hotspur deal at the moment.

Spurs want to sell him rather than risk losing him for free this summer since the former Ajax Amsterdam star has already told club bosses that he won’t be signing any contract.
Eriksen has decided to snub Manchester United despite their bid thus making it the second time for him.
The Danish international had earlier turned down a transfer to Old Trafford last summer as he waited in vain for an offer from Real Madrid who were rumored to be interested in him.
Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have also been mentioned but it seems like his next destination is Inter Milan who have offered him €10m yearly in salary.
Liverpool snub United move speculations for Alcantara, make offers
Earlier reports had claimed that English Premier League champions Liverpool could be having their transfer plan hit the rock with claims that Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara will be heading to the Old Trafford to join Man United.
Recall that it was reported that the Reds have already established contact with the player and agreement already reached but waiting for talks with the club to conclude on a deal.
Thiago Alcantara rejected a new offer with the German Bundesliga giants which make him available in the summer window.

This is not the first time Thiago Alcantara would be linked to Man United with the first in 2013 which hit the rock and they could be set for another major disappointment as Liverpool are reported to be going ahead with a deal for the star player.
The latest report now claims that Liverpool will be going ahead with the deal with Thiago Alcantara stating clearly that he is sure a move to the Anfield will happen in this summer window. He is reported to have put up his house in Germany on sale in preparation for a new life.
Surprisingly, the midfield position is not a top priority for Man United and especially after they secured the signature of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon.
Arsenal get Man City star as transfer suggestion
North London club, Arsenal have been told that Man City defender John Stones will not be a bad addition o the club especially as they struggle at the defensive department.
This is not the best of time for John Stones who is struggling to get the nod of manager Pep Guardiola as he has only started 11 games this season and one since the restart, making him like an outcast in the team.
It is now seeming clear that his future at Man City is unlikely with a move away as the best option to pick.

Former England international Jamie Redknapp said John Stones’ career could revitalize if he shifts camp from Man City to Arsenal, stressing that he is a player with proven quality and still has enough time to remould at age 26.
Jamie Redknapp stated that the Gunners are in need of a central defender which makes Stones a good fit, and that could be made easy with Mikel Arteta at the club, having both worked together in Man City.
It is now left to the player to seek a move away while the North London outfit will have to wait for a fee to be named on the player so that a move can happen in the summer transfer window.
Liverpool target easy Dejan Lovren replacement
The future of Dejan Lovren is uncertain with the English Premier League champions at Anfield with suggestions that he might be having his last season at the club already.
Liverpool is, therefore, reported to be considering an option for Dejan Lovren with Leandro Cabrera from Spanish La Liga outfit Espanyol.
The fate of the Spanish outfit is already decided and confirmed to be relegated from La Liga leaving the club to the huge possibility of losing most of their players including Leandro Cabrera.
It is reported that amongst other players, Leandro Cabrera will not be relegated with Espanyol to the second division and will seek a move away. Liverpool will take up that advantage to pull a deal through in this summer window.
Luckily for the Reds team, Leandro Cabrera has a clause in his contract with the Spanish club that permits him to sign with any club on loan without additional fee as long as his wages are covered.
This option will be largely considered by the Reds with manager Jurgen Klopp believed to be a fan of the defender as the future of Dejan Levren is unknown.
With Liverpool hierarchy not wanting to make any financial commitment this summer window, Leandro Cabrera could just be the best option for Klopp.
Arsenal in pole position to sign Roca
North London outfit Arsenal are set to benefit from the fate of the Spanish La Liga club Espanyol who are going to be relegated from La Liga and set to lose their players.
A number of clubs are already considering players from the Spanish club, including Liverpool who are believed to be seeking the signature of Leandro Cabrera as a replacement for Dejan Lovren.
According to La Razon, the Gunners are seeking the signature of Marc Roca from Espanyol as manager Mikel Arteta is believed to be a big fan of the midfielder.

The Spanish boss is also hoping to land Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey and already looking forward to his partnership with Marc Roca in the middle.
Marc Roca has a release clause of about £40 million and that could be negotiated by the two clubs especially with the player not ready to be relegated with Espanyol.
The 23-year-old enjoyed 33 appearances for Espanyol this season, making him one of the best the club can boast of. He is experienced and can be a better option to Matteo Guendouzi who could his way out of the Emirates Stadium.
Everton have been named as one of the clubs seeking the signature of the Espanyol midfielder but the Gunners are tipped to win the race.
Liverpool to lose Nigerian international to Napoli
Lille and Nigeria international Victor Osimhen has been in the news for reports of a move away from the French Ligue 1 outfit in this summer transfer window.
The 21-year-old was earlier reported to be on the wanted list of English Premier League champions Liverpool with claims that manager Jurgen Klopp will be seeking to work with him but that seems to have faded away as Italian Serie A outfit Napoli are set to win the race.

Journalist Nicolo Schira reports that the Nigerian international youngster has already held talks with the Sporting Director at Naples and agreement has been reached with a deal expected to be made official and announced as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.
However, it is being reported, according to reports in Italy that there are complications in the agreement for the Lille forward, the reason why a deal has not been announced. English Premier League side, Tottenham are set to take advantage of the situation to submit a bid for Victor Osimhen.
This means that Liverpool are out of the race for the former Wolfsburg forward who scored 18 goals for Lille in the 2019/2020 season, helping them to clinch a Champions League spot by finishing fourth on the log.
Manchester’s battle for Oyarzabel intensifies
There is a new turn in the chase of Mikel Oyarzabel from Spanish La Liga outfit Real Sociedad, according to Todofichajes which claims that the two English Premier League clubs in Manchester are keen to land his signature.
This means Man United and Man City are both locking horns to snap up the signature of the 23-year-old winger who is available on a release clause of £64 million.
According to reports, the Red Devils have shown more interest in the Real Sociedad player but have valued the player for £45 million.

The Red Devils have shown more interest in England international, Jadon Sancho of German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund, having made him their top priority but in case they fail to secure his signature, Mikel Oyarzabel will serve as a good option as a result of his quality.
Borussia Dortmund have slammed an asking price of £100 million on the young England forward and seem not ready to come down on the negotiation table, a fee the Red Devils will not be able to afford if they must secure other deals.
Meanwhile, Man United’s chance of landing Jadon Sancho is highly dependent on their qualification to the Champions League as he will not want to play n a club without European football at that level.
How correct is Arteta on Arsenal as an attractive club
Many concerns have been raised over North London outfit Arsenal and their bid to engage in the summer transfer window because of their lack of results in recent years.
Manager Mikel Arteta has urged the club to sign more players as he hopes to rebuild a team that will be able to compete for titles with the top sides but that is being threatened by the fact that the Gunners will not be playing in the Champions League next season as they are currently ninth on the log while the Europa League is also very unlikely.

It is widely believed that a number of big players will want to join a club with a chance of success and titles ahead of others that cannot boast of the same.
This notion has been dismissed by Arteta who claims that Emirates Stadium still attracts a lot of players. He claims to be close to the market and the responses he has gotten so far from players he has been speaking to are positive.
He stressed that Arsenal have a rich history, incredible style of play and structure, adding that it is enough to attract players to the club.
However, it is not sure if the manager is speaking the truth on the reality on the ground but the true judgment would be known if the Gunners are able to strike big deals in this summer window, especially as they will not be in the Champions League next season.
Chelsea’s challenge in Kepa’s proposed swap deal emerge
From all indications, West London outfit Chelsea are willing to let go of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in this summer transfer window.
The shot-stopper has been criticized for his unsatisfactory performance with commentators insisting that he should be part of the players that should be shown the exit door of the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have, therefore, been linked with Jan Oblak, the Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid goalkeeper who is valued at £110 million, a fee the Blues cannot meet.

In a bid to ensure a deal for Jan Oblak, it is reported that Chelsea are proposing a swap deal that will have Kepa Rrizabalaga go the other direction which is already being rejected by the Spanish side. While Atletico Madrid fancies the idea of a swap deal, they are not ready to have Kepa Arrizabalaga as part of it.
This makes the situation more complicated for the West London outfit who will find it difficult to sell Kepa, even at the £71.6 million that was invested in him while the weekly wage continues to be a challenge as well.
Atletico Madrid have been able to let go of David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois in the past to EPL clubs but they seem to value Jan Oblak more than his predecessors in the team.
