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

Manchester United willing to sell EIGHT players

Despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer boasting a £100 million transfer budget, the Manchester United boss could get a raise if players are sold.

United’s owners, the Glazer family, would happily let the following eight players go for the right price: Jesse Lingard, Brandon Williams, Diogo Dalot, Alex Telles, Phil Jones, Andreas Pereira, Daniel James, and maybe Anthony Martial.

The club board also has very little confidence that Paul Pogba will sign a new contract. The Frenchman is set to become a free agent next summer. Therefore, United may allow him to leave this year if Paris Saint-Germain follow up on their interest.

Tottenham step up Romero pursuit

After signing Bryan Gil from Sevilla, Tottenham have turned their full focus on Cristian Romero.

The Atalanta defender is now a top priority as manager Nuno Espirito Santo seeks to strengthen his backline. Spurs will probably pay at least £40 million (€46.8m). Talks are set to resume in the upcoming days. [Telegraph]

Varane to join Manchester United

The Red Devils have struck a deal to sign Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane for around €50 million.

The Frenchman has reportedly agreed on a four-year deal with an option for another 12 months included. The deal is 100% completed. Varane will travel to Manchester this week and may undergo a medical a few days later. United could unveil their new signing next week once he has ended his quarantine. [Fabrizio Romano]

Brazilian youngster rejects Benfica for Juventus

Santos starlet Kaio Jorge has rejected a contract offer from Benfica in favor of a transfer to Juventus.

The 19-year-old forward is in advanced talks with the Bianconeri. His mind is set on a move to Serie A. The only question is when? Juventus could sign him this summer for a fee of around €1-2 million or wait until January when he is available for free. [Goal]
