Man Utd are linked with a £275million trio, and Liverpool are increasingly confident of signing Jude Bellingham while chasing two Premier League midfielders…
MAN UTD GO BACK TO REAL FOR FRANCE STAR
Having signed a game-changing midfielder from Real Madrid last summer, Manchester United are apparently ready to do it all again this year – while paying almost twice the price.
Casemiro cost around £60million when he moved to Old Trafford in August but, according to Fichajes, the Red Devils are lining up a £115million offer for Eduardo Camavinga.
The 20-year-old has drifted in and out of Carlo Ancelotti’s XI this season after a positive first term at the Bernabeu following his move from Rennes in 2021.
Talksport reckons Harry Kane is also a target – Tottenham probably enhanced United’s chances last night – while the Red Devils also want Mohammed Kudus from Ajax. All of which would cost in the region of £270million.
If indeed United are working on a sell-to-buy basis, they need top dollar for the ‘several’ players that ESPN says they are ready to sell. Among those mentioned are Harry Maguire, Scott McToninay, Fred, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Elanga.

A huge summer also awaits Liverpool. And the Daily Mail says the Reds are ‘increasingly confident’ of landing Jude Bellingham, even if their prospects hinge on securing a top-four spot. Or overturning their deficit to Real Madrid and winning a seventh European Cup.
The same source suggests Liverpool are also favourites to land Mason Mount from Chelsea and Wolves’ Matheus Nunes as Jurgen Klopp looks to revamp his midfield.
But Borussia Dortmund won’t budge on their valuation of Bellingham. According to 90min, the Germans want £133million for the England star and they haven’t given up hope of convincing him to stick around for at least another season.

NEWCASTLE DEFENDER WANTED BY PSG
Newcastle know they have work to do to keep the players they have while at the same time improving their squad this summer. Bruno Guimaraes is being eyed by Real Madrid and The i says Sven Botman is potentially a target for PSG.
Regardless of Botman’s future, Newcastle are being linked with a move for Leeds defender Robin Koch. The German, who can play in a central role or on the left of a back four, has spoken of taking the ‘next step’ in his career and is also being linked by Sport1 with a number of Bundesliga clubs.
The Magpies are also mentioned – tentatively – by El Desmarque as a possible destination for Raphinha if they offer to give Barcelona back the £55million they spent on signing him from Leeds last summer.
