Jadon Sancho

English Premier League club Man United have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of the summer transfer window.

According to reports, the German Bundesliga club are now planning for the departure of the England international, with the Telegraph reporting that they have started searching for his replacement.

This means the club are already giving up on keeping the 20-year-old as they have been on the negotiation table with the Red Devils for many weeks.

Borussia Dortmund are requesting a fee of £100 million for the youngster which the Red Devils are unwilling to pay. Man United initially pegged their bid at £50 million for Jadon Sancho they have now improved it to £80 million which is yet to be agreed upon.

There is no doubt that the England international will to mind returning to his country home and Man United will not be a bad club for him while the Bundesliga side are also ready to let him go but seek to cash in on the player.

However, it is reported that Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica has been identified as the best replacement for the former Man City youth player and the club is already preparing an offer for him.

Popular Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has hinted that the North London outfit Arsenal will sign Runar Alex Runarsson this week with the hope that an agreement will be reached with Arsenal.

Runar Alex Runarsson is expected to join the Gunners from French club Dijon as a replacement for Emiliano Martinez who has left the Emirates Stadium to join Aston Villa in a region of £20 million.

Emiliano Martinez was keen on a regular first-team football ahead of Bernd Leno but he cannot be trusted for that role by manager Mikel Arteta despite his world-class performance.

It is the wish of the Spanish manager for the Argentine to remain as he was offered a new and improved deal but he turned it down making North London lacking in options of a goalkeeper.

Runar Alex Runarsson and David Raya from Brentford have been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium and it is believed that one of them will make a move with the Italian journalist claiming that the France-based shot-stopper will be favoured for a move.

When asked if Runar Alex Runarsson will be signing for Arsenal Fabrizio Romano replied “Yes, He’ll join Arsenal as Emi Martinez replacement.

Gareth Bale

The headache with Man United at the moment is finding an alternative to England international winger Jadon Sancho who is a top target for the club but there has not been an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for a deal.

It is understood that the Red Devils are disappointed with the delay in the deal and the refusal of the Bundesliga outfit to bring down the fee. This is forcing the club to move in for other alternatives.

So far, Man United have been linked with the signature of Gareth Bale, Douglas Costa, and Ivan Perisic as a possible replacement but of them all, only one is readily available for a move.

The report of Gareth Bale’s interest in a return to Tottenham if he leaves Real Madrid is no longer hidden which remains he will not joining Man United again despite the interest be shown.

Also, Italian Serie A giants Juventus are yet to make up their mind on the future of Douglas Costa at the club and that means the Red Devils will have to go through another hurdle to snap up his signature.

However, with the latest report Manchester Evening News, Man United could be offered Ivan Perisic by Inter Milan as a swap deal for Chris Smalling as they are also interested in bringing in a new defender.

This will make signing Ivan Perisic easy for Man United but the decision that will have to be made is if they actually need him in the team or not.

The need for a left-back and a centre-back is also being discussed with several other names linked but there is yet to be any concrete step to achieving that.

Atalanta forward Amad Traore is the latest to be linked with a move to Man United as they are reported to be in talks with the club for a possible deal before the end of the summer transfer window.

This summer transfer window showed to be a busy one for the Red Devils but nothing serious has happened so far. It is believed that more signings will still join the club after Donny van de Beek.

Much has not been seen of the right-winger who had just three Serie A appearances for Atalanta last season and traveled with the team for their Champions League quarter-final clash against PSG.

However, Amad Traore seems to be attracting clubs across Europe with claims that the Red Devils are facing competition for his signature because he is a young player with big potential.

Manchester Evening News reports that the Red Devils will not be landing Amad Traore for a cheap fee despite his lack of first-team exposure because he is highly valued by the club.

Howbeit, Amad Traore is not seen as an alternative for Jadon Sancho as he might not make an immediate impact if he joins the club this summer transfer window.

The Spanish defender spent last season on loan with Sevilla but will now have a new challenge in the English Premier League with the North London outfit for a fee within the region of £27 million.

Popular transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano made this revelation on a Podcast show when he stated that the 23-year-old was already keen to join Man United, having in mind that he will be playing in the Champions League but everything changed when Tottenham contacted him.

This development leaves Man United fans with another reason to be concerned as they have been hitting the dead rock in most attempts to snap up their targets. Sergio Reguilon will be the latest after Gareth Bale, who is decided already to join Tottenham.

Kylian Mbappe

Former English midfielder Luke Chadwick is of the opinion that Man United cannot lose their hope on signing French star Kylian Mbappe from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain when it is time for him to leave.

The Times had reported that the 21-year-old wants to leave France at the end of this new season, having told the club of his decision and that has attracted interests from a number of teams across England and Spain.

Man United are reported to be possible suitors alongside Liverpool, Barcelona, and Real Madrid but the Red Devils are not favoured according to analysis to win the race for the World Cup winner as Real Madrid have been tipped to win the race.

However, Luke Chadwick believes the Red Devils will not be ruled out of the race to sign Mbappe if manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does the right thing to win and get the club to deliver in the Champions League.

According to him, everyone knows the history of the Red Devils and what they want to achieve. With a good job by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the last seven years of struggling can be brought to an end with wins.

He noted that if that is done, the club will be able to attract world-class players like Kylian Mbappe.

Houssem Aouar

English Premier League club Arsenal are not giving up on their bid to land Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar this summer transfer window as they are reported to be preparing another bid.

This is not the first time the Gunners will be submitting a bid for Houssem Aouar as their first bid of cash plus Matteo Guendouzi was rejected by the French Ligue 1 outfit.

Lyon have insisted on taking within the region of £50 million for the youngster but the Gunners cannot meet and are positive that they can still make a deal happen before the summer window ends.

The latest report by Telefoot Chaine claims the North London club will now make an imminent £36.5 million bid for the midfielder with the hope that it could be considered this time around.

The Gunners are now clear front-runners in the bid for Houssem Aouar after beating Man City and Juventus who were reported to be admiring the player and making moves earlier in the summer window.

While Arsenal have already made some additions in this summer transfer window, they are still hoping to strengthen with the signature of Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid to be able to compete for titles.

Former Arsenal stars, Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott are reportedly set to be offloaded from Merseyside outfit Everton before the end of the summer transfer window.

Both players have not been able to prove their worth at the club as they were both absent in the season’s opener. Alex Iwobi was not listed on the team’s squad for the game.

Everton are hoping to get rid of the two players from their books after shelling out big money to recruit them. They will now need to adjust by forcing some of the high-earning players away in order to gain their financial balance as they are also being affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Alex Iwobi joined the Toffees for a fee of £40 million but is yet to make an impact at Goodison while nothing more can be said of Theo Walcott who joined the club in January 2018 under Sam Allardyce.

However, the slimming down of the team is not peculiar to Everton alone as Arsenal are also making moves to do the same to be able to sanction other deals.

Emi Martinez is the first to leave the Emirates Stadium within the region of £20 million and more players are expected to sign out before October 5.
