Man Utd could be offered two players from Juventus for Paul Pogba and they have a new no.1 keeper lined up, while Chelsea have picked Maurizio Sarri’s replacement, according to Wednesday’s European papers.
DYBALA, COSTA OFFERED FOR POGBA
Juventus are working on a deal to get Paul Pogba back to Turin, according to Tuttosport.
The Italian paper claims Pogba’s return three years after he left to return to United for £89million is the dream for next season.
Pogba’s future at Old Trafford is far from assured, although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has publicly always said he wants to build a team around the France World Cup winner, although this week he hinted his plans could have changed.
Juve though are studying the situation and could be ready to offer forwards Paolo Dybala and Douglas Costa in return for the 26-year-old.
LIVERPOOL IN FOR ‘NEXT VAN DIJK’
Liverpool are considering a summer move for Dutch teenage star Xavier Mbuyamba, according to the latest reports from the Netherlands.
The 17-year-old has been hugely impressive for second-tier side MVV Maastricht, having already made 11 first-team appearances despite his age.
Now, Voetbal International claim that Liverpool are amongst a number of clubs who are interested in securing his signature this summer.
Their report claims that despite the fact Mbuyamba is currently on trial at Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp is keen on the idea of swooping in and snatching him from under their noses due to their transfer ban.
Celtic, Bayern Munich and FC Porto are all also credited with interest, while previous reports in Holland have labelled the 6ft2 centre-half as the ‘next Virgil van Dijk’.
MVV for their part have not tied Mbuyamba down to a professional contract meaning he is free to discuss terms with other sides.
