The latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and much more.

Manchester United push for ‘bonus’ signing

Declan Rice could become the subject of a late transfer bid from Manchester United.

Despite his comments, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pushing for a ‘bonus’ signing after all. The Red Devils boss wants a central midfielder and Rice is at the top of his list. But West Ham value the 22-year-old at £100 million, meaning United could be priced out of a move.

Should that be the case, Solskjaer could turn his attention to Yves Bissouma as an alternative. The Brighton star, though, doesn’t match the kind of profile he seeks in a midfielder. [The Indepedent]
