Manchester United are already involved in two long-standing transfer sagas with the futures of Frenkie de Jong and Cristiano Ronaldo up within the air. Erik ten Hag is eager to sign De Jong from Barcelona but faces an enormous challenge to persuade him to make the move while Ronaldo is hell-bent on leaving to play for a Champions League club.
Up to now, Ronaldo has struggled to win any interest with Chelsea, PSG, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid distancing themselves from a move while Sporting Lisbon aren’t holding out much hope of pulling a deal off despite Jorge Mendes’ desire to seal his client a move away.
Meanwhile, Chelsea want to follow up the signings of Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly by welcoming more names through the door. Thomas Tuchel has quite a few targets but is claimed to have been ‘bewitched’ by Inter star Cesare Casadei, with the club reportedly making a suggestion within the region of £6million.
Tottenham have already done the majority of their summer business, bringing in six players, but are very keen so as to add Nicolo Zaniolo from Roma and are reportedly near signing him. Antonio Conte has quite a few players he still desires to offload and is near getting one in every of his unwanted stars off Spurs’ books with Giovanni Lo Celso nearing an exit to Villarreal.
Clubs like Liverpool, Newcastle, Arsenal and West Ham are also scouring the market and may do more business between now and the tip of the summer window while there guarantees to be loads of goings on across Europe in the subsequent couple of weeks.
