Goal summarises the biggest transfer talk from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, the Bundesliga and beyond
DE GEA WANTS MADRID MOVE
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea wants to join Real Madrid this summer, according to OK Diario journalist, Eduardo Inda.
Speaking on Spanish television, Inda revealed De Gea is keen to leave Manchester and return to his homeland.
“Real Madrid are still thinking about one goalkeeper, who is De Gea, but Mourinho is determined not to let him leave United,” Inda told TV show El Chiringuito.
“De Gea believes that Manchester is hell because every day is black. The player has privately said that he wants to play for Real Madrid.”
ALLEGRI TO REJECT ARSENAL
Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is set to reject the chance to become Arsenal manager and instead replace Luis Enrique at Barcelona, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The Italian was the frontrunner to replace under-fire Gunners boss Arsene Wenger at the Emirates at the end of the season, but is now looking at a switch to La Liga rather than the Premier League.
Allegri has led Juventus to two Serie A titles during his time in Turin and was denied a Champions League winners’ medal only by a defeat by Barcelona in the 2015 final.
MAN UTD AND MAN CITY WANT ROMA STAR
Manchester United and Manchester City are ready to battle it out for the purchase of Roma defender Antonio Rudiger, according to a report from Calciomercato, via TalkSport.
Bayern Munich are also said to be interested in the 24-year-old, while Antonio Conte is also keen to add him to his Chelsea squad as he looks to shore up his defence ahead of next season.
Rudiger has made 15 Serie A starts this season and a further three in the Europa League, and has established himself as one of the most exciting central defenders in the country.
CHELSEA PLAN MATIC TALKS
Chelsea are set to open contract extension talks with Nemanja Matic this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Blues are being linked with midfield reinforcements when the transfer window re-opens, but they consider their Serbia international to be vital to their plans.
MAN CITY EYE MIDFIELDER EXTENSION
Manchester City are preparing to hand Fernandinho a 12-month contract extension, reports The Sun.
The Brazilian will enter the final year of his current deal this summer and Pep Guardiola is eager to avoid attracting interest from elsewhere.
ISCO READY TO JOIN MAN CITY
Real Madrid midfielder Isco has decided to leave Santiago Bernabeu and join Manchester City, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Spain international is out of contract this summer and is ready to leave the Blancos, with City his preferred choice despite interest from Juventus.
MAN UTD’S GRIEZMANN HOPES FADE
Manchester United’s hopes of signing Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann this summer are beginning to fade, according to the Independent.
The complexity of the deal has seen United cool their interest in the France international, and they are now looking into other potential options, including Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Monaco youngster Kylian Mbappe.
GIBSON ON MAN CITY SHORTLIST
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has added Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson to his summer shortlist of potential signings, according to The Sun.
The centre-back, who would likely cost in the region of £25 million, has also caught the eye of Chelsea as they look to bolster their defensive ranks ahead of next season.
KROOS READY TO JOIN MAN UTD
Toni Kroos is ready to join Manchester United in the summer in the event that Real Madrid finish the season without a trophy, according to a report in the Daily Star.
The World Cup winner was linked with a move to Old Trafford during the tenure of David Moyes, but, while that move fell apart, a fresh approach could yield a different result.
MAN UTD TO HAND HERRERA NEW DEAL
Manchester United will hand midfielder Ander Herrera a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2019, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 27-year-old Spaniard has been impressive for the Red Devils this season, helping Jose Mourinho’s men clinch the EFL Cup, and the club are set to reward his performances.
MAN CITY JOIN BELOTTI RACE
Manchester City are the latest side to express an interest in Torino striker Andrea Belotti, reports the Daily Mirror.
The 23-year-old has an £86 million buyout clause, but that has not put off the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Real Madrid.
ROMEU & CEDRIC ON BARCA RADAR
Barcelona are considering a surprise double swoop on Southampton for Oriol Romeu and Cedric, according to The Sun.
Romeu started his professional career at Camp Nou and is seen as a useful midfield addition, while Portugal international full-back Cedric has caught the eye for the Saints.
BARCA TO WATCH BELLERIN
Barcelona technical director Robert Fernandez will attend Arsenal’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich to scout Hector Bellerin, Mundo Deportivo reports.
The right-back has been continually linked with a return to Camp Nou, but signed a contract extension this season to put such rumours to bed. However, as Arsenal crumble in the Champions League and Premier League, the 21-year-old could be convinced to trade north London for Catalunya as Barca begin preparations for life after Luis Enrique.
ALEXIS TO LEAVE ARSENAL
Alexis Sanchez will be sold by Arsenal this summer after a series of rows with manager Arsene Wenger, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Chilean was dropped for the Premier League clash against Liverpool for the sake of team harmony and Paris Saint-Germain are leading the race to prise him away from the Emirates Stadium.
SPURS CONFIDENT OF ZAHA DEAL
Tottenham are confident of finally signing Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha in the summer, according to the Daily Mirror.
The former Manchester United man is a long-term target of Mauricio Pochettino’s and Spurs expect to seal a deal despite the fact he is rated at £30 million by his current club.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN WANT STURRIDGE
Paris Saint-Germain are keen on Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.
The newspaper reports that the Ligue 1 champions would like to bring the frustrated England international to France on loan, rather than fork out £30 million, as they look to boost their attacking options.
CHELSEA TARGET £70M REUS
Chelsea will have to pay £70 million if they are to secure the services of Marco Reus, according to the Sunday Express.
The Borussia Dortmund forward is understood to be a target for a number of Premier League clubs, with Chelsea and Arsenal said to be leading the race for the 27-year-old, whose contract expires in 2019. However, a hefty fee will have to exchange hands before any move materialises.
ALLEGRI AGREES TO REPLACE WENGER
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has reached a verbal agreement with Arsenal to replace Arsene Wenger should he stand down, according to the Daily Express.
With Wenger’s future at the Emirates Stadium uncertain, Allegri is in pole position to take over if the Frenchman declines to extend his 20-year tenure beyond the end of 2016-17.
ARSENAL PLAN FOR ALEXIS DEPARTURE
Arsenal expect Alexis Sanchez to leave this summer and are already planning for life without the Chilean, according to the Daily Mail.
Alexis is out of contract in 2018 and is yet to sign a new deal, leaving the Gunners to identify Alexandre Lacazette, Andre Silva and Marco Reus as their top targets to replace him.
MAN UTD TO SIGN KROOS AND VARANE
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is preparing a sensational move for Real Madrid duo Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane in the summer transfer window, according to Spanish publication Don Balon.
Kroos is reportedly unsettled in the Spanish capital, despite recently signing a new long-term deal at the club, and is being targeted to partner Paul Pogba in the United midfield.
Mourinho is also looking to shore up his defence at Old Trafford, and sees Varane, who he presented with his Real Madrid debut during his stint at the La Liga club, as a possible candidate.
INTER TARGET GUARDIOLA
Inter Milan are looking to replace Stefano Pioli with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, according to Tuttomercatoweb.
Should Pioli leave the club in the summer, Inter will attempt to prise Guardiola from the Premier League, with Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone a back-up option should the move fail.
