It’s Monday morning and which means Fabrizio Romano is again to provide the lowdown on the newest transfer gossip in his unique column for CaughtOffside, with as we speak’s piece having a look at Manchester United’s talks over Frenkie de Jong, the newest on Sadio Mane’s doable transfer from Liverpool to Bayern Munich, and a few doubtlessly encouraging information for Chelsea relating to Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt…

Manchester United in direct talks over Frenkie de Jong

This saga rumbles on and on, however for not an enormous quantity has modified. I can inform you that Manchester United are in direct negotiations with Barcelona, their request is for a payment of €85million, however Man United must persuade the player, who has not but given the inexperienced mild to a transfer to Outdated Trafford.

As I’ve written earlier than, Erik ten Hag is an enormous fan of his former player and would take into account him a “assertion” signing, however the massive subject is the Dutchman’s want to remain at Barca and play within the Champions League.

On a extra constructive replace for United, Benfica striker Darwin Nunez is definitely one other player mentioned internally since March, and I perceive the player would really like a Premier League transfer this summer time.

As I revealed in my column final month, Man United will 100% signal a brand new striker this summer time, and it’s extremely doubtless that Nunez will go away Benfica.

United absolutely received’t be alone in focusing on him, nevertheless, as I perceive Arsenal needed him in January, whereas West Ham provided €45million on Deadline Day. This supply was rejected by Benfica and he would now value one thing nearer to a €70/80m payment. He’s an thrilling younger player who may clear up loads of issues for United up entrance, for my part, and it’s going to be a narrative to maintain an in depth eye on on this transfer window.

Jurrien Timber is a goal that Manchester United have mentioned internally with Erik ten Hag, however Ajax will attempt in each strategy to maintain him. These subsequent few days shall be necessary to grasp his future. I’m conscious there was hypothesis that he might be able to reject United, however nothing has been determined but.

Negotiations underway for Sadio Mane to seal transfer to Bayern Munich

Liverpool are ready to finish negotiations for Sadio Mane earlier than signing a alternative. The negotiation with FC Bayern is underway with the German club established as the highest precedence from the player.

Sadio Mane to depart Liverpool?

My understanding is that Liverpool will certainly look to switch Mane if he leaves, however till then I wouldn’t pay an excessive amount of consideration to among the hypothesis we’ve seen, together with current rumours involving Christian Pulisic and Raphinha being targets for Jurgen Klopp.

There may be curiosity in Pulisic from a number of golf equipment, however to this point there are nonetheless no official affords for him, as a result of the American winger will first have to debate his scenario with the board of Chelsea. There are additionally query marks surrounding Timo Werner, so don’t be stunned if the club are cautious about letting too many gamers go without delay.

As for Raphinha, Leeds need €55m paid with out too many instalments. Barcelona have needed him for a very long time however they’re not capable of pay €55m as of now, which may in principle enable one other club in. Nonetheless, let’s see what occurs later available in the market because the Catalan club’s relationship with Raphinha’s agent Deco could be very sturdy.

Matthijs de Ligt ultimatum may hand Chelsea a transfer enhance

Matthijs de Ligt’s present launch clause is legitimate for €120m, whereas his present contract expires in June 2024. Juventus at the moment are negotiating with the Dutch defender to increase the contract till 2025 or 2026, however De Ligt has advised the club that he’ll only signal a brand new settlement if the discharge clause is lowered.

To this point for Barcelona, who’ve monetary issues, it’s too costly a deal for them to significantly take into account in the intervening time. Chelsea have been monitoring De Ligt for months, however the precedence in the intervening time is Jules Kounde.

De Ligt is a prime player and Juve received’t need to lose him, however he’s not making it straightforward for them right here, and if Chelsea resolve they need one other centre-back within the close to future, this more and more seems like a critical choice for them.

In different Juventus information, I can reveal that, regardless of the rumours, there aren’t any Premier League negotiations for Paulo Dybala. Inter Milan are in superior talks with the Argentine and as issues stand that’s his most definitely subsequent vacation spot after he allowed his contract to run down.

Allan Saint-Maximin not a transfer precedence for Spurs

It is a advantageous player who typically dominates headlines, however there’s no concrete motion on Newcastle’s entrance man in the intervening time.

Eddie Howe is an enormous fan of Allan Saint-Maximin and needs him to proceed as a key player for subsequent season. To this point, Tottenham produce other priorities after the Ivan Perisic deal was accomplished. The club has all the time monitored Saint-Maximin, however let’s see if they are going to open negotiations with Newcastle.

After all, for my part Saint-Maximin is an underestimated player: he can completely be a part of a club that’s combating for the highest positions, however he should really feel necessary in a venture and never simply an alternate. For now it might be sensible for him to remain at Newcastle, the place he shall be an necessary a part of an thrilling venture.

Why it’s gone mistaken for Georginio Wijnaldum at PSG

Gini Wijnaldum and his agent are ready to see who would be the manager of Paris Saint-Germain earlier than deciding on the long run.

Georginio Wijnaldum in motion for PSG

Wijnaldum wish to keep however it’ll rely on the alternatives of the brand new manager, as a result of Mauricio Pochettino had needed him in any respect prices in Paris however he’s destined to depart. It is going to quickly be mentioned with the brand new director Luis Campos.

For my part, Wijnaldum was good for Liverpool and really helpful to Jurgen Klopp; whereas Paris Saint-Germain wanted a extra bodily midfielder than Gini, this is the reason it has not labored to this point.

There was speak of a return to the Premier League as you’ll anticipate, however we’ll have to attend a bit longer to know for positive what’s going to occur with Wijnaldum this summer time.
