Idrissa Gueye

English Premier League club, Man United will not give up on their French Ligue 1 outfit, Paris Saint Germain star, Idrissa Gueye, according to reports.

Idrissa Gueye has been on the radar of the Red Devils for the past months and the chase seems to be quiet for the past weeks but it is reported that they are still in his chase and will make a move this summer transfer window.

The French media outlet, LE10 Sport reports that the French Ligue 1 club now wants to part ways with the former Everton midfielder and that gives the Red Devils an upper hand in the deal.

A deal for Idrissa Gueye has been on the low due to Man United’s focus on England international winger, Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund.

While the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team is yet to strike a deal for the England international winger, they are reported to be growing in frustration and could abandon the deal for other options.

However, it is expected that a formal offer would be submitted for Idrissa Gueye in the coming weeks to make him return to the English Premier League after his first spell with the Merseyside outfit, Everton.

Man United might not be close to wrapping up a deal for FC Porto left-back Alex Telles as they are still in negotiation with the Portuguese club over a fee for the player.

It is understood that the Red Devils have already agreed on personal terms with the player but the fee has been a major challenge to wrapping up the deal for the past days.

However, it is believed that the situation will progress as soon as a fee is agreed and the final paper works will be done without wasting much time but what is unknown is if FC Porto will agree to lower their demands or if the Red Devils will up their bid for Alex Telles as that will determine if a deal will happen or not.

Meanwhile, Man United are not leaving anything to chance in their bid to land a left-back and this has been exposed by a Manchester Evening News which claims that they are already eyeing another left-back.

The report claims that the Red Devils will immediately move in for Brazilian and Dynamo Kyiv’s Vitality Mykolenko if an agreement is not reached with FC Porto because they are desperate to have an option in that position.

Chris Smalling

Man United might be playing tactics to keep Chris Smalling at the club for the new season especially now that they are yet to find a new centre-back that will partner Harry Maguire this season.

It would be recalled that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was quick to shower praises on Chris Smalling as soon as he returned from Italy on his season-long loan, stressing that he has improved in his game and could be a goof addition o the team this season.

Against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s claim, it is understood that Chris Smalling is no longer interested in staying in England as he already fell in love with Rome and wants to return on a permanent basis.

AS Roma are willing to give him that opportunity to have a permanent stay in Italy but there has been difficulty in agreeing on a deal with the Red Devils.

Man United are insisting on £18 million for Chris Smalling but AS Roma seem not interested in meeting that valuation as they came up with an £11 million offer which was rejected.

The Guardian reports that AS Roma are now preparing to come up with a second offer but it is not reported if they will now meet the £18 million valuations or not.

There are indications that Man United and Chelsea could do some players business before the end of this summer transfer window

This is after it was reported that the West London outfit have placed four of their players on sale and the Red Devils are being linked with two of the players.

It is reported by various media outlets that the Blues have put France international N’Golo Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger, and Callum Hudson-Odoi for sale this season.

According to Daily Express, more to the reason that these players are not in the plans of the club for this season, manager Frank Lampard is keen on the signature of Declan Rice and he must sell to be able to land him.

One player that is being monitored by the Red Devils, according to reports is Callum Hudson-Odoi and Manchester Evening News scouting writer David Alexander Hughes is of the opinion that the winger can be the ideal target for the Man United.

The fact that Man United are keen on a winger is not hidden from the public space and that gives Callum Hudson-Odoi the chance to having a stay in England as the Red Devils top target Jadon Sancho cannot be brought to the Old Trafford this summer window.

Harry Maguire

A former Man United player Dimitar Berbatov has urged manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign a defender that will partner with Harry Maguire at the defence this season.

This became a concern for Man United and the fans after their first Premier League game that ended in a 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace. It was observed that more is expected from the club’s defence line-up to be able to avoid such results.

Dimitar Berbatov noted that Man United suffered a defeat against Crystal Palace because the goals they conceded were as a result of defensive errors, adding that the situation must be immediately resolved before another defeat comes their way again.

The former player stated that the Red Devils must strengthen their defence if they must avoid another barren season, noting that Harry Maguire needs a stronger partner to succeed on the job.

This fact has been admitted by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who claimed that the priority has changed for the club in the summer transfer window and that is expected to happen within the next two weeks.

What is unknown is who the Red Devils will be bringing to the Old Trafford as they have not been strongly linked with a centre-back in the last few days.

Ousmane Dembele

Spanish outlet, AS has reported that Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele is not considered as top on the plan for Manchester United for a winger this summer transfer window.

It is claimed that England international Jadon Sancho is top on the list, and he is followed by Gareth Bale. Barcelona starlet Ansu Fati is also next to the new Tottenham player before Ousmane Dembele who is plan D.

AS reports that the Catalans are not open to the option of giving out Ousmane Dembele on loan but will prefer to sell him on a permanent deal for £100 million, a fee the Red Devils will not be able to pay, even if he is top on the list.

With Jadon Sancho looking unlikely to join the Old Trafford this summer window and Gareth Bale already with North London outfit Tottenham, the next option for Man United, going by the report, ought to be Ansu Fati.

However, the player will not be leaving the Camp Nou as he has agreed on his first senior deal with the Spanish La Liga giants.

The 17-year-old was a revelation for the Catalans last season, scoring seven goals in 24 appearances in the La Liga which earned him the attention he now receives from suitors across Europe.

With his new deal, he will not be allowed to leave the club for anything less than £400 million while he was handed a No. 22 shirt.

Philippe Coutinho

One player Arsenal were strongly linked with this summer transfer window is Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho but speculations of his move to the Emirates Stadium has been on the low.

Until the arrival of Ronald Koeman as Barcelona manager, Philippe Coutinho was tipped to have a return to the Premier League with his agent confirming it amidst strong interest from the North London club.

Philippe Coutinho’s loan spell with German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich ended last season and he was meant to leave the club but his wish was never to return to Barcelona where he was not favoured.

The whole situation changed with the coming of the new Catalan boss who reportedly convinced the former Liverpool player to return and have a good time at Cmp Nou.

However, the latest report claims a deal for Philippe Coutinho is not over yet for Arsenal as they could still make an attempt to snap him up before the end of the summer transfer window.

Although there are many questions to ask, including if the Gunners can convince Philippe Coutinho again if they can meet the asking price of the Brazilian and pay his huge weekly wage.

Howbeit, the Gunners might have turned their attention to Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.
