Football Transfer Centre


Manchester United have reportedly receive a blow in signing Jadon Sancho, who is said to fancy a move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid next summer.

Sancho was one of the Red Devils’ prime targets before the current season but they could not convince Dortmund to sanction his sale, considering the German club had already lost the services of Christian Pulisic.

According to The Times, Sancho is likely to consider a bigger challenge at the end of the current campaign but it appears that United are no longer his preferred destination.

Instead, he is understood to favour a move to one of Barcelona or Real Madrid with the Spanish heavyweights currently said to be monitoring his performances at Dortmund.

The England international has recently been reported to be unhappy at the Bundesliga outfit with manager Lucien Favre punishing him for disciplinary concerns.

The teenager was left out of the starting lineup to face Barcelona in the Champions League last night with Favre citing that he was not completely focused.

Smalling’s agent to discuss permanent deal with Roma


The representative of Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has reportedly opened discussions with AS Roma regarding his client’s permanent transfer to the club.

The England international was not assured with regular gametime under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the beginning of the season and that contributed towards him joining Roma on a year-long loan.

Smalling has since proved a success for the Giallorossi where he has started nine league games on the bounce while contributing two goals and the solitary assist.

According to Il Tempo, Smalling’s agent has now flown to the Italian capital to find out whether the Giallorossi are interested in signing the centre-back on a permanent basis next summer.

United are said to want a fee of around £18m for the former Fulham youngster, who still has more than three years remaining on his existing deal at the club.

Smalling recently produced a stunning display for the Giallorossi in the 3-0 thumping of Brescia. He opened the scoring for the Serie A outfit and later provided the assist for Gianluca Mancini’s goal.

Pulisic in doubt for Man City clash


Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic is reportedly a major doubt for the Premier League game against Manchester City as he has yet to recover from a hip problem.

The USA international sustained the injury during the 2-0 league win over Crystal Palace before the international break and that saw him withdraw from the national team squad for the Nations League games.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old has not recovered from the injury setback and he is now facing a race against time as he looks to prove his fitness for the Cityzens clash.

Pulisic has been in fascinating form over the past month and he has been the standout performer for the Blues in the Premier League in the previous three matches where he has scored five goals.

In his probable absence, Callum Hudson-Odoi could feature on the left side of the attack but the England international needs to up his game, having struggled for form with club and country of late.

Maddison to pen new Foxes deal?


England attacker James Maddison is reportedly prepared to snub advances from Manchester United in order to pen a new long-term deal with Leicester City.

The 22-year-old has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League and he has already amassed six goals from 13 appearances in all competitions.

As a result, there has recently been the speculation that United could make a big-money move for Maddison in either January or at end of the campaign but it appears that the playmaker is content to stay put with the Foxes.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the former Norwich City man appears intent on prolonging his stay with the Foxes and he could reject the Red Devils to sign a new and improved deal.

United have struggled to find a suitable player, who can make the difference in the number 10 role and the likes of Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Andreas Pereira have remained inconsistent with their showing.

Chelsea want Jadon Sancho?


Chelsea will reportedly battle with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in the race to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund next summer.

Sancho has been a revelation since moving to the Bundesliga from Manchester City two years ago and he has amassed 15 goals and 19 assists from just 42 league appearances.

United had failed with an approach to sign the England international last summer but it appears that they could face stiff competition in eight months’ time with both Chelsea and Real Madrid holding an interest.

The Blues have fared impressively despite the year-long transfer ban but the club’s hierarchy are not taking things for granted and they are expected to spend when the embargo concludes.

The left-back position remains a problematic position for the west London giants but Lampard is also said to be eyeing a world-class winger to compete with the likes of Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi in the long term.

Manchester United are reportedly set to face stiff competition from some of Europe’s elite sides, should they wish to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund next summer. 

The Red Devils had made an approach for the England international during the summer of 2019 but Dortmund made it clear that the attacker was not for sale.

Since then, reports have indicated that Dortmund may sanction the winger’s sale at the end of the season and there are likely to demand a sum of around £100m.

According to Bild, United are no longer alone in the player’s pursuit and they are set to face competition from the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, City, Liverpool and Chelsea next summer.

Sancho, who has generally featured on the right side of the attack, has been in sublime form for Dortmund this term and he has already bagged four goals and seven assists from 13 appearances.

His current contract with Dortmund only expires in the summer of 2022 but Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has recently hinted that the teenager could be permitted to leave the club for the right price in eight months’ time.

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up an approach to sign Ben Chilwell from Leicester City as they aim to bolster the left side of the defence.

The 22-year-old, who has also been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea, has made close to 100 appearances for the Foxes since his debut during the 2015/16 season.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are said to hold a keen interest in signing the England international with Luke Shaw yet to establish himself as the first-choice left-back.

Shaw managed to stay injury free for most of the previous season where he was named the club’s Player of the Year but that has not been the case this term.

The former Southampton graduate has already missed nine games this season with a hamstring problem and reports indicate that his time with the club could be coming to an end.

Aside from Chilwell, the Red Devils are also said to hold an interest in compatriot James Maddison and a double swoop could be on the cards next year.

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.
