The coronavirus pandemic has made the summer transfer window uncertain, but here are the new rumours floating around Europe’s big leagues and beyond.
Juventus can’t afford Pogba?
The Frenchman’s move back to Manchester United was considered to be a defining moment in his career when it took place back in 2016, but it always felt as if there was a chance he could return to the Old Lady once again someday.
Unfortunately, while they may clearly be interested in pursuing a deal, Paratici has noted that no club would realistically be able to afford Pogba’s wage demands in the current climate due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Manchester United want Hugill
Manchester United are interested in trying to sign Sunderland youngster Joe Hugill, The Sun reports.
The 16-year-old has was said to be at the top of Jose Mourinho’s wishlist at Tottenham this summer, but as a result of the delay in them trying to get a deal over the finish line, United are believed to have jumped to the front of the queue.
With the Red Devils struggling to get something going in their pursuit of Birmingham City star Jude Bellingham, this could be the silver lining that they’ve been searching for.
Arsenal ready to sell Mkhitaryan
The Armenian has enjoyed a successful loan spell in Serie A with Roma this season, and with one year remaining on his contract, it’s not exactly surprising that Roma wants to make the move permanent.
A player-plus-cash deal could be struck between the two clubs, although the Gunners are hoping to receive a fee of around £10 million for the former Manchester United star.
– Alexis Sanchez could be interested in returning to Italy for a loan spell with Roma, Sky Sport Italia reports. The Manchester United flop has failed to impress during his time out on loan with Inter Milan, and with Roma aiming to strengthen their squad ahead of next season, the Chilean could be offered yet another route out of Old Trafford.
– The Mirror reports that Sporting Lisbon have given West Bromwich Albion an extra 30 days to come up with the £8.25 million necessary to secure the permanent signing of Matheus Pereira. Following a successful loan spell at The Hawthorns it seemed inevitable that he’d stay in the West Midlands, but the ongoing pandemic has added a layer of uncertainty to proceedings.
