Man Utd’s pursuit of Varane continues

Goretzka to replace Pogba at Man Utd?

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up their options to land Leon Goretzka as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba.

There are serious questions marks surrounding Pogba’s future at Old Trafford, with the Frenchman’s contract due to expire in June 2022. He has also shown little inclination to renewing his deal.

Goretzka is in a similar situation, with his Bayern deal expiring next year as well, and he could be available for a cut-price to Man United.

Hazard ‘offered back’ to Chelsea

Eden Hazard could make a sensational comeback to Chelsea as the winger has been “offered back” to the club by Real Madrid, as per AS.

Struggling with form and a series of fitness problems, Hazard has been a shadow of a player he was at Chelsea during his two years at Real Madrid so far.

The Belgium international still has a strong relationship with several members of the Blues squad and could re-join them ahead of the upcoming season.

However, a number of roadblocks exist for such a move to be completed such as Los Blancos’ asking price, which is in the excess of €60 million, the player’s high wages, and the fact that Chelsea’s transfer priorities probably lie elsewhere.

Spurs still after Skriniar

Tottenham remain interested in Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, Calcio Mercato reports.

Spurs have long been linked with bringing the 26-year-old center-back, who is tied to Inter until June 2023, to the Premier League.

Tottenham aim for triple sale

With a squad overhaul in mind ahead of the next season under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo, Tottenham are aiming to cash in on at least three first-team players.

Spurs, who want to launch a Premier League top-four challenge in 2021-22, are open to offers for Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, and Matt Doherty [TalkSport.]
