Neymar: Barcelona won’t be his next destination


Barcelona will not make a move for Neymar in the January transfer window, despite missing out on re-signing the Brazilian international during the summer. The Paris St Germain striker is unhappy at the Ligue 1 side and has been constantly linked with a return to his former club.

Josep Maria Bartomeu has ruled out a return for the player, seemingly leaving Real Madrid as the sole suitors for the Brazilian international. Many Premier League teams have been interested in signing Neymar, but the striker is reportedly unwilling to move to England.

“He’s not in the plans for January,” Bartomeu said. “Barcelona couldn’t meet PSG’s demands [this summer]. Barcelona never offered players for Neymar, it was PSG that asked for them. We did everything possible to sign him. It’s a fact that Neymar asked PSG to negotiate only with Barcelona. Lionel Messi didn’t tell me to sign Neymar, that’s a myth. The players don’t have a say in signings.”

Paris St Germain are ready to sell their star player for a fee of around 200 million euros.

James Maddison news

Maddison wanted by United in January


Manchester United will reportedly make an approach to sign James Maddison from Leicester City when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Red Devils suffered a 2- 1 loss to Crystal Palace in the recent league clash and this has already left them five points behind table-toppers Liverpool.

According to The Mirror, the club are likely to recruit a creative playmaker in the New Year after failing to do so during the recently-concluded transfer window.

The same report suggests that Maddison has been earmarked as the prime target but the club may struggle to find the breakthrough over a transfer deal with the Foxes.

The east Midlands outfit played hardball over the negotiations for Harry Maguire until a £80m fee was agreed earlier this month and it is claimed that the Foxes would demand a similar fee for Maddison.

Still, they have generally been reluctant to lose their players at the midstage of the season and they are most likely to reject the advances from the Red Devils.

Maddison bagged seven goals and seven assists in his maiden Premier League season last term. He has started the new season in good form with two assists from three appearances.

Bruno Fernandes news

United close to Fernandes deal?


Sporting Lisbon are reportedly expecting an approach from Manchester United to secure the services of Bruno Fernandes before the Premier League transfer deadline.

The Portuguese has been linked with the likes of United, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid over the past month but the former have been deemed as favourites to land his signature.

According to AS, the Primeira Liga giants are anticipating an offer from the Red Devils for the midfielder, considering there are only four days remaining before the transfer window closes in England.

Fernandes was hugely successful with Sporting last term and he contributed a stellar tally of 32 goals and 18 assists for the club while largely featuring in the centre of the park.

Meanwhile, United’s ongoing pursuit of Paulo Dybala has seemingly reached a dead end with the Juventus star reluctant to make the move to Old Trafford due to the lack of Champions League football.

Romelu Lukaku has been predicted to make the move to the Bianconeri as part of a swap deal involving Dybala and it remains to be seen whether the Serie A holders offer another player in exchange for the Belgian.
