Mourinho to let Pogba depart
Jose Mourinho has lost patience with Paul Pogba and is set to let the Frenchman leave Manchester United this summer, reports the Daily Mail.
The 25-year-old France international has seen his place in the team come into question this season amid talk of a strained relationship with his manager.
And Mourinho is now ready to sell the midfielder, with Anthony Martial, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind also on the list of players the Portuguese manager will allow to depart Old Trafford.
Darmian welcomes Juventus interest
Matteo Darmian has welcomed the interest being shown in him by Juventus as he edges towards a summer move away from Manchester United.
Taken to Old Trafford by Louis van Gaal in 2015, the versatile defender enjoyed a productive 2016-17 campaign under Jose Mourinho.
The 28-year-old has, however, slipped back down the pecking order in the current campaign, making just 13 appearances, and is now wanted back in his native Italy by Juventus.
Chelsea challenge Arsenal to Golovin
Chelsea are determined to beat Arsenal to the signing of CSKA Moscow midfielder Alexander Golovin, Sport24 reports.
Arsene Wenger is already tracking the 21-year-old, but Blues owner Roman Abramovich hopes to lure him to Stamford Bridge with a view to loaning him initially to Vitesse.
City to hand Guardiola £200m war chest
Manchester City’s owners will sanction £200 million for Pep Guardiola to spend this summer, reports the Mirror.
The City boss will look to strengthen at centre-back, holding midfielder and forward as he attempts to turn his Premier League champions into Champions League winners as well.
Thomas Lemar, Fred, Jorginho, Jean Michael Seri, Julian Weigl, Riyad Mahrez and Toby Alderweireld are just a few of the names City could target this summer.
Man Utd set Martial price
Manchester United will only sell Anthony Martial if they receive a bid of at least €50 million, according to Calciomercato.com.
The France international has been frustrated by a lack of playing time this season, with clubs like Juventus and Bayern Munich linked with the 22-year-old.
Jose Mourinho could sanction a sale for the forward, but he’ll have to receive a significant offer to let Martial go.
Barcelona step up Umtiti talks
Barcelona have recently made contact with Samuel Umtiti’s representatives about a new contract, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The France centre-back is looking for an improvement on his current contract, which expires in 2021.
And, with Manchester United reportedly looking to swoop for Umtiti, the report states that Barcelona are more optimistic than ever that a new deal can be reached.
Donnarumma offered to PSG
Agent Mino Raiola has offered his client Gianluigi Donnarumma to Paris Saint-Germain, reports France Football.
The Ligue 1 winners are thought to be targeting an upgrade to goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, and the 19-year-old AC Milan star could be the perfect candidate to fill the void.
PSG have also sounded out other goalkeeping targets, including Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak, Roma’s Alisson and Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois.
Rashford to delay contract talks
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford will delay talks over a new contract due to a lack of playing time, according to The Sun.
The 20-year-old has two years remaining on his current deal, but has started just 14 of his 30 Premier League appearances this term.
Rather than pen fresh terms, Rashford wants to wait to see if Jose Mourinho will bring in even more attacking options this summer.
Man City join Paulinho chase
Manchester City have joined the race for Brazilian teenager Paulinho, reports the Daily Mail.
The 17-year-old Vasco da Gama forward has broken into the first team this season, and has also impressed with the Brazil U-17 side.
Atletico Madrid have already seen a £12 million bid rejected, with Vasco da Gama reportedly demanding £25m for the striker.
Tottenham willing to sell Dembele
Tottenham are willing to sell midfielder Mousa Dembele this summer, according to the Mirror.
The 30-year-old has put talks over a new contract on hold until after the World Cup, with the Belgium international’s current deal having just one season remaining.
Though Spurs won’t actively look to move Dembele on, they will listen to offers, with Barcelona’s Andre Gomes and Atalanta’s Bryan Cristante identified as possible replacements.
Madrid willing to sell Ceballos to Liverpool
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has given the green light to sell Dani Ceballos to Liverpool, claims Don Balon.
The 21-year-old midfielder has struggled for playing time in his first season at the Bernabeu, and Jurgen Klopp’s side are interested in offering the Spain U-21 international an escape route.
Perez, however, will only sanction a move if a buy-back clause is included in the deal.
Man Utd and Arsenal scout Zivkovic
Representatives from Manchester United and Arsenal attended Benfica’s match against Porto on Sunday to watch Andrija Zivkovic, reports O Jogo.

Tottenham have also been linked with the 21-year-old Serbia international, as well as various sides from Germany.
Lenglet could play for Barca – Montella
Sevilla manager Vincenzo Montella believes defender Clement Lenglet is good enough to play for Barcelona in the future.
The Sevilla centre-back has impressed in La Liga this season, and the Catalan giants have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old.
Though Montella said Lenglet may play for Barca some day, he also hopes the French defender stays with Sevilla in the near future.
Alexander-Arnold doubles his wages
Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has triggerered an improved deal that has doubled his wages, reports the Mirror.
The 19-year-old received a boost in his deal when he reached 30 senior appearances, with the right-back’s rapid progress this season surprising even manager Jurgen Klopp.
Alexander-Arnold is now tied down to the Anfield club for the next four seasons.
Guardiola set for new contract
Manchester City and Pep Guardiola are nearing a deal on a 12-month extension of the manager’s contract, according to ESPN FC.
The Spanish boss has led City to Carabao Cup and Premier League titles in the second season of a three-year deal.
Though Guardiola has insisted he won’t stay in England for a long period, he is reportedly willing to sign on for another year as City chase an elusive Champions League title.
Liverpool to step up Zielinski chase
Liverpool are prepared to step up their interest in Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski, according to Tuttomercatoweb.
The 23-year-old Poland international is a long-term target of the Reds, who attempted to sign Zielinski while he was at Udinese before he instead joined Napoli in 2016.
Though Zielinski has made just 10 league starts this season, Napoli are still set to demand £57 million to let him go.
