European giant duo set for fierce summer battle for €85m-rated Man Utd star

Romelu Lukaku is reportedly set to feature at the middle of a tug of war in summer between Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning a massive summer clear out and Romelu who has only netted 15 goals this campaign could be in his sights.

The former Everton and Chelsea player has hinted himself that he could seek an Old Trafford exit and would like to play in Serie A.

The French heavyweights are keen for the struggling Belgium international to replace current first-choice striker Edinson Cavani and would be prepared to give Manchester United back most of the £90m they paid for him.

But they face heavy competition from Inter Milan who have been given Romelu’s name on a wish list of stars by Antonio Conte who is close to appointing at the club next campaign.

Antonio wanted to take the star back to Stamford Bridge when he was in charge of the Blues and is keen for them to link up in Milan. He has previously made clear he would one day like to play in Serie A.

“Playing in Serie A is a dream, it would be really a dream,” Belgium international explained recently.

“I hope to be able to play sooner or later even if at the moment I am focused on United.”

Reports appeared earlier this week that Ole would hold negotiations with Lukaku over his long-term future at Old Trafford.

Since the Norwegian tactician has taken over from Jose Mourinho, the one-time Everton player has fallen down the pecking order behind English star Marcus Rashford and Romelu could consider his future in summer as a result.

Man Utd reportedly want to strengthen midfield by landing Everton star

Manchester United are prepared to challenge Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain to bring Everton star Idrissa Gueye to Old Trafford in summer as they reckon the Senegalese could be an ideal candidate to get the best out of French star Paul Pogba, according to a recent report by the Daily Mail.

The same source has added that the Toffees board are aware of their player’s desire to leave Goodison Park at the end of this season and are set to demand a £40 million sum for their prized asset.

The 29-year-old star has enjoyed another stunning campaign for the Blues of Merseyside as the player helped his side secure a top half finish in the EPL.

Gueye has been an important part of Marco Silva’s side after putting in some dominant displays for them thus far.

He has built a status as a tough tackling defensive midfielder along with Andre Gomes, who acts as the facilitator for the Toffees at the middle of the pitch.

The Dakar-born star has featured in 32 games for the Toffees this season and has two assists to his name in all competitions.

More importantly, Idrissa has made an average of 1.4 clearances, 4.3 tackles and 2.2 interceptions per match in the Premier League.

He can cover plenty of the ground at top speed which helps Gueye press the opposition attackers quite productively when not in possession of the ball.

Idrissa can be considered amongst the best defensive midfielders in England due to his skill to read the game intelligently under high-pressure situations.

Man Utd not plan to abandon pursuit of 24-year-old Liga NOS giants star

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly not given up on the idea of luring Bruno Fernandes to Old Trafford in summer.

The Sporting CP star has netted 32 goals in all competitions this campaign and has an £85 million exit clause.

Under contract until the summer of 2023, Sporting CP are thought to be prepared to cash in on Fernandes in the coming months and sell for less than his deal’s break clause.

A Bola state Manchester United are not out of the running after Ole insisted to the board signing Fernandes is fundamental to his rebuild plans.

Ole wants the chance to convince the Lions to accept their proposal and lure Bruno away from city rivals Manchester City, who are also interested in the 24-year-old.

While the Red Devils consider the options, Norwegian tactician is demanding a big summer of spending at Old Trafford.

The boss want to sign a right-back, a midfielder and right-sided attacker when the summer transfer market opens on 16 May.

Borussia Dortmund talent Jadon Sancho is a reported target, as is Crystal Palace right-back and breakout talent Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Red Devils could spend upwards of £200 million, with a slew of regular names set to leave the club.

Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia’s exits have already been confirmed and there is talk Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez could follow them out the door.

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly launched an offer for Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea.

French journalist Geoffroy Garetier states that PSG have tested the Red Devils’ resolve by tabling a bid.

Speaking on Canal+, Geoffroy said: “Paris Saint-Germain are seeking a world-class goalkeeper now more than ever. The club have made an offer for David de Gea.
