Moussa Dembele topping United’s winter shortlist


Manchester United have reportedly identified Lyon’s Moussa Dembele as the prime transfer target for the 2020 January transfer window.

The Red Devils decided to part ways with Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku over the summer and this has left them with limited options in the centre-forward department.

Anthony Martial has struggled with a hamstring concern since the end of August and that has left the Red Devils with just Marcus Rashford as the senior striking option.

The England international did make a strong beginning to the campaign with a brace against Chelsea but he has since struggled to score from open play and has bagged just one goal from the penalty spot.

According to The Mail, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to recruit a new striker in January and Dembele has been earmarked as the leading target for the New Year.

Dembele has made a positive start to the campaign with six goals from just 10 appearances but he has recently found himself starting from the bench for Les Gones.

However, his position could change with the appointment of Rudi Garcia, who has recently replaced Sylvinho as the new head coach. United may require a bid of at least £50m to tempt Les Gones into a sale.

James Maddison news

Maddison on Real radar


Manchester United target James Maddison has reportedly emerged as a surprise transfer option for Real Madrid amid his impressive performances for Leicester City over the past 16 months.

The 22-year-old has been one of the Foxes’ most consistent performers since his move from Norwich City last year and he has already amassed 10 goals and nine assists while operating in the number 10 position.

Over the past few weeks, it has been indicated that United could be the next destination for the England Under-21 international but Marca claims that Los Blancos could come up with a bid of their own for the playmaker.

The 13-time European champions are currently going through a transitional phase and it is claimed that Maddison has been identified as a suitable target for the creative midfield role.

Maddison currently has under four years remaining on his current contract with the Foxes and the east Midlands outfit are bound to demand fees of around £80m for his future sale.

There has recently been speculation that Maddison could leave the Foxes in January but that would come as a surprise, given the club have generally declined to do business at the midway stage of a campaign.

Football Transfer Centre


Real Madrid have reportedly earmarked Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling as their prime target for the 2020 summer transfer window.

The England international has been a huge contributor for the Citizens in the past couple of seasons and he has started the current campaign in the same vein of form with five goals from as many league appearances.

According to The Athletic, Los Blancos have held a long-term interest in the former Liverpool graduate and they are prepared to make a renewed approach at the end of the 2019/2020 season.

Still, the Citizens are in a strong position to keep Sterling with nearly four years remaining on his contract and Los Blancos will have to come up with a bid in excess of £100m to persuade the Premier League holders into doing business.

Sterling was an unused substitute during the recent Premier League against Watford where the Citizens romped to a stunning 8-0 win. He could feature against Preston North End in the League Cup third round tomorrow.

Foxes want a higher fee upfront from United for Maguire


Leicester City have reportedly told Manchester United that they are unlikely to sanction the sale of Harry Maguire unless they receive a higher transfer fee upfront.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen on improving the club’s defence ahead of the new season.

According to The Mail, the Red Devils have made an opening bid of £72m with additional bonuses which would be paid, should the club qualify for the Champions League.

However, the Foxes have rebuffed the package and want a bigger sum upfront, given they are not convinced that the Red Devils will make a swift return to Europe’s elite competition.

Maguire, who has four years remaining on his Foxes contract, has been regularly involved with the east Midlands side in their preparations for the new Premier League campaign.

Manchester City have recently failed with a similar offer to United’s for the England international but they have decided against continuing their pursuit of the centre-back.
