We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
Ole extends at United
It’s been in the works for a while and we can confirm that Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has signed a new deal that will keep him at Old Trafford till 2024 at least, yet with an option of another year.
The club unveiled Jadon Sancho on Friday and have now followed that up with a new deal for their manager who took over from Jose Mourinho and led the team to a second placed finish in the league as well as to the final of the Europa League.
PSG fans warn Pogba against move
Paul Pogba has rejected a new deal at Manchester United with all fingers pointing at a potential move to Paris Saint-Germain but in a bizarre development late on Friday, PSG fans hoisted a banner to warn the Frenchman from joining their beloved club.
“Listen to your mother, don’t come here” was the inscription on the banner and it points to the fact that fans don’t want him at the club, will that be enough to stop the deal from happening?
Edouard close to Brighton switch
Celtic young striker Odsson Edouard is on his way to Brighton and Hove Albion after the two clubs agreed a fee for the striker.
Brighton have money to throw around after the Ben White deal to Arsenal and they’re looking to utilize it judiciously; the Seagulls created so much chances last season and struggled to convert them, a move for a striker is highly needed as they’re also in the news for Martin Braithwaite from Barcelona.
Is Liverpool living dangerously?
Liverpool aren’t in the news for real interests in arrivals but with Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane in the final year of their contracts, will they sell either or both this summer or risk the Gini Wijnaldum situation again next summer?
Real Madrid are big admirers of both players but with financial constraints, they may have to sell before considering any move, but the ball is in the court of the Kops and they must play it smartly to avoid their prized assets leaving on a free.
Bernardo Silva available for transfer?
Arsenal have been alerted at the news that Portuguese playmaker Bernardo Silva is available for transfer but the fee is rumored to be upwards of 60m Pounds.
Arsenal are in the market for an attacking midfielder as the team struggled to create chances last season, Silva might come in with bigger experience than James Maddison who the club has been eyeing for a while and also cheaper.
