MORNING, UNITED FANS
United are closer to signing Jadon Sancho – and a little further from recruiting Raphael Varane.
That’s if you believe the latest speculation over long-term target Sancho and this summer’s defensive transfer priority Varane.
It’s suggested Borussia Dortmund’s England wideman Sancho could complete a move for up to £80million next month, with a five-year contract reportedly already agreed.
But there’s talk France centre-back Varane’s wage demands are a huge stumbling block.
The Real Madrid star is thought to want about £400,000 a week.
Everton are in discussions with Juventus to sign United and Arsenal target Merih Demiral, reports say.
And outgoing Old Trafford keeper Sergio Romero is also being linked with the Toffees, as well as Juve and Celta Vigo.
Finally, Tottenham are keeping tabs on Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, one of the central defenders rated as an alternative United recruit to Varane
And Barcelona legend Samuel Eto’o thinks the Catalans should sign Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos, who has also been rated an option for United and PSG.
