Donny van de Beek has reportedly been offered to Barcelona with Manchester United star said to be eager to seal the move to the Camp Nou.
The Dutchman joined the Red Devils in a deal worth £35 million last summer but endured a difficult first campaign in the Premier League
Donny was limited to just 15 starting appearances – just four of those in the division – as he struggled to break into the senior team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, sparking speculation about his long-term future at Old Trafford.
A recent report from the Telegraph stated Van de Beek’s patience at the Theatre of Dreams is now wearing thin with the former Ajax ace surprised and concerned over the lack of chances afforded to him.
His agents would now appear to be seeking alternative options and have offered the 24-year-old to Blaugrana following their failed attempts to land another Dutchman in Georginio Wijnaldum.
Sport report Donny would be ‘delighted’ to switch to the La Liga side, one that would see him link up with former de Joden teammate Frenkie de Jong.
Blaugrana are yet to definitively respond to the offer but the report says the club are interested in bringing in a more defensively-minded midfielder and are likely to look somewhere else.
Manchester United and Manchester City are reportedly among the clubs looking to land Sergio Ramos on a free transfer this summer.
Real Madrid announced on Wednesday night their long-serving captain will depart the Bernabeu this month after 16 years in the Spanish capital.
Talks over a fresh deal with Real hit an impasse long ago with Sergio set to become one of the most high-profile free agents of the summer transfer market.
Marca, Sport, Mundo Deportivo and As all report there are four potential destinations for Ramos – two of those from England.
AS report Ramos’ agents have been in direct contact with the Citizens for some time.
Aymeric Laporte remains linked with a transfer away from the Etihad Stadium with Eric Garcia joining Barcelona this summer. The report suggesting Sergio could be ideal options to bolster Pep Guardiola’s variants at the back.
However, the reports also say United are in the running with a transfer to Old Trafford one that has always interested the centre-back.
United were in touch with Ramos over a move back in 2015 during a previous contract stand-off with Los Blancos, with the Spain international eventually agreeing a new deal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is interested in bringing in a partner for Harry Maguire at the back ahead of next term with the club also keen on Ramos’ long-time defensive partner Raphael Varane.
Atletico Madrid have reportedly slapped a £43m asking price on England full-back and Manchester United transfer target Kieran Trippier.
Kieran, who helped Los Rojiblancos win the La Liga title last campaign, has emerged as a key target for the Norwegian tactician Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Following another mixed season at Old Trafford, he is keen to bolster his squad in the coming months and sees Trippier as a star who can compete with Aaron Wan-Bissaka for the right-back role.
Spanish champions don’t want to part ways with the 30-year-old defender, who has two years left on his existing deal and will want around £43 million to strike a deal, according to Sky Sports.
The Red Devils are yet to make an official bid for him, who spent four years at Tottenham Hotspur before moving abroad, but the club were believed to be looking to agree a deal in the region of £20 million.
Whether they’ll be willing to pay more than double for Kieran remains to be seen and Ole could instead pursue a deal for Norwich City star Max Aarons.
England manager Southgate showed how much he values his player by starting him at left-back – ahead of Chelse and Manchester United defenders Ben Chilwell and Luke Shaw – in their opening Euro match versus Croatia.
