Euro Paper Talk: Chelsea, Utd target’s Barca hint; De Gea price

Date published: Friday 26th May 2017 7:19

A Chelsea and Man United target has hinted at a move to Barcelona, while United have reportedly named the price they will allow David de Gea to leave for this summer, according to Friday’s European press.


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly named his price for goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Portuguese tactician is said to want €75m (£65m) from Real Madrid for the Spaniard, or striker Alvaro Morata plus €25m (£21.7m).

A move for Morata looks highly unlikely, however, given that the frontman now looks certain to join AC Milan this summer.

Marca claims that Mourinho has come to terms with the fact that De Gea would prefer a move back to his homeland this summer, with United linked with several highly-rated goalkeepers as a result – the latest being Benfica stopper Ederson Moraes.


Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie, who has been linked with Chelsea and Manchester United, has reportedly agreed a move to AC Milan.

The 20-year-old had been strongly tipped to make a move to the Premier League this summer, but La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Milan representatives have already visited the player’s home to complete the deal.

Kessie may also not be the only Atalanta star to join Milan this summer, with full-back Andrea Conti also wanted by the Serie giants, according to Calciomercato.
