TOP STORY: Manchester United set price for Pogba
The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford, despite still having 18 months left on his contract. Pogba is believed to have no interest in signing a new deal in the midst of great interest from Real Madrid and former club Juventus.
The Old Lady are the frontrunners to secure the signing and will likely put everything they’ve got behind bringing him back to Turin, whereas Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is adamant that he can get Pogba to remain at the club.
08.00 GMT: Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Lyon’s Moussa Dembele after the Ligue 1 side released a statement which said the forward is not for sale.
Sources have told ESPN that United have been interested in signing Dembele with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the market for centre-forward and having missed out on Erling Haaland.
However, Lyon have said they do not want to let the 23-year-old leave the club in January.
“Lyon have moved to reaffirm their desire, just as in the summer of 2019, to keep Moussa Dembele,” a club statement read. “Lyon have complete confidence in Moussa and count on him as we build a powerful team for the seasons to come.”
PAPER TALK: Inter Milan continue to pursue Vidal
The popular midfielder has officially returned to training with Barca with the expectation being that he will feature against Espanyol this weekend, although that could well be his final game with the Spanish giants.
Antonio Conte wants to get a deal done in order for Vidal to spend the second half of the season with Inter as they continue their push for the Serie A title, with Barcelona currently valuing him at around €15-20 million.
Manchester United go after Cantwell
The youngster, who is currently contracted to the Canaries until 2022, has been turning heads since the start of Norwich’s first season back in the Premier League. United will be joining Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in their pursuit of Cantwell over the next few years.
However, while they may be in the running, City could have the advantage as they’ve been tracking Cantwell’s work for a few years now.
— Southampton are believed to be interested in signing Real Valladolid defender Mohammed Salisu, Sky Sports News reports. The youngster’s buyout clause is currently only priced at €12 million which is one of the primary reasons why the Saints believe they could secure the signing. Alas, while it’s a possibility, the club are more interested in putting the focus on bringing in a few full-backs.
— Sheffield United have entered themselves into the race to try and sign Nice star Adrien Tameze, The Telegraph reports. The midfielder has also been attracting the attention of Southampton, Aston Villa and Burnley, although the Blades are believed to be leading the way and want to tie up a deal sooner rather than later now that the January transfer window is officially open.
