Man Utd told £25million+ will get signing done in January

Manchester United have been linked with midfielders this month and the latest name in the focus is that of Joao Palhinha, who is a key player for Sporting Lisbon.

According to Record, Man Utd and other suitors have made contact lately and there are strong chances that the play breaker will leave the Lions in the January transfer window.

The 26-year-old defensive midfielder’s contract with the Liga Nos side will expire in 2026. The famous Portuguese source have mentioned that in the summer, Sporting were demanding a fee of 40 million euros.

Now, the reigning Primeira Liga champions have lowered the asking price but have told the suitors that a fee over 30 million euros (£25million) will be needed to lure the player before the end of the transfer deadline.

The former Braga man is a proven quality holding midfield star. Last season, in 28 league starts, Palhinha helped his team keep 18 clean sheets. This season, the Seleccao star has so far started 16 league games under the management of Ruben Amorin and has helped Sporting keep 10 clean sheets. Moreover, he has scored 3 goals as well.

The 12-capped international made his debut for the senior national side back in March last year and he made two appearances at the European Championships.

Barcelona plan to offer €30 million for 24-year-old La Liga defender

Even though we are just a few weeks away until the transfer window slams to a shut, Barcelona remain active in the market and are still looking for ways to strengthen their squad.

The Catalans have roped in a slew of top-quality stars in the month of July, including star striker Robert Lewandowski. Although they are yet to sign a player in August, Xavi has set his sights firmly on a few players.

One of those players in question is Juan Foyth. The Villarreal starlet has been identified as the ideal replacement for Sergino Dest as Barcelona look for a reliable right-back that can offer more quality than the American international.

Indeed, Barça have been left frustrated by Dest’s lack of progress at Camp Nou. They are prepared to sanction the exit of the former Ajax starlet, with Manchester United among the clubs in contention to snap him up by the end of the month.

While Dest’s exit from Camp Nou could soon be on the horizon, Barcelona are actively trying to lure Foyth away from Villarreal. The club are even weighing up an offer for the young Argentine, according to Gerard Romero.

The reputed Spanish journalist suggests Barça are considering a bid of around €30 million plus add-ons for Foyth, in an attempt to convince Villarreal this summer.

The Catalans are aware of the fact that the Yellow Submarines rate the defender highly due to his tremendous success in La Liga. In addition to his form, he offers a lot of versatility to the table and with time on his side, he could be a smart long-term investment for the club.

However, it remains to be seen whether Villarreal are open to sanctioning the exit of one of their prized defensive assets, especially at this stage of the transfer market

Man Utd ready to agree net £34million+ contract for signing, guarantee stability for decades – AS

Published

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
