The latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and much more.
Solskjaer handed 12 months to sign ‘dream transfer target’
The Manchester United boss has around 12 months to convince Erling Haaland into a transfer to Old Trafford.
Despite the possibility of selling Haaland for an absurd amount of cash this summer, Borussia Dortmund are reluctant to do a deal. The German giants have already profited from Jadon Sancho’s €85 million sale to United. Therefore, they would rather hold on to their star striker.
This stance means Haaland won’t be available until next summer, which is when his €75m release clause comes into effect. So Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a year to convince his fellow Norwegian that United is a club that can compete for domestic titles and the Champions League. [Manchester Evening News]
Barcelona set to announce new Messi deal
Lionel Messi has reportedly reached a complete agreement over a new contract at Barcelona.
The club’s president Joan Laporta must now cut the salary cap at Camp Nou to make the deal official.

Newcastle United have made a transfer inquiry to Juventus for Aaron Ramsey.
The former Arsenal midfielder has struggled to make his mark in Turin since a free transfer in 2019, regularly prompting rumors of a return to the Premier League.
Now Newcastle have approached Juventus to discover their stance on Ramsey. Informal talks have taken place between the two clubs, but nothing serious has happened so far. [Goal]
Mourinho identifies Xhaka alternative for Roma
Arsenal have shut the door on a departure for Granit Xhaka, leaving Jose Mourinho to seek another midfielder.
The Roma manager has reportedly turned his attention to Borussia Dortmund star Thomas Delaney. The Dane, like Xhaka, impressed in Euro 2020 this summer, and his defensive-minded qualities interest Mourinho. [Bild – in German].
Hart closing in on Celtic switch
Tottenham goalkeeper Joe Hart is set to undergo a medical on Tuesday ahead of a £1 million transfer to Celtic.
With Pierluigi Gollini having arrived on loan from Atalanta, Hart is free to seek a new club. The former Manchester City man has reportedly agreed on a three-year deal to join Celtic this summer.
The 34-year-old heads to Parkhead in hope of regular football as Scott Bain and Vasilis Barkas failed to impress last season. [Daily Mail]
