Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd ready to battle Euro giants for Lyon trio

Date published: Monday 3rd December 2018 11:55

Manchester United and Manchester City are set to battle Real Madrid for three Lyon starlets, while AC Milan have confirmed interest in a Chelsea man, in Monday’s European papers.



Manchester United have been boosted in their long-term interest in Goncalo Guedes, according to reports in Spain.

The Valencia star has long been on Jose Mourinho’s list of targets and hope of luring him to Old Trafford has been significantly lifted by claims that he has fallen out with Los Che coach Marcelino.

TV station Movistar picked up on a heated discussion between the two during Saturday night’s match at Real Madrid, which Los Blancos won 2-0, a result that leaves Valencia – who finished fourth last season – struggling down in 14th place in LaLiga.

The cameras picked up on the under-pressure Valencia coach calling over the Portuguese forward over towards him, before stating “there have been 27 minutes, and you have not yet done anything”. Suffice to say, the Guedes reacted unfavourably to his manager’s words.

Marcelino tried to move himself away from claims he has fallen out with the player, but sections of the Spanish press believe Manchester United could come back in for the former PSG man when the transfer window opens next month.

United could attempt to sweeten the deal by sanctioning the departures of one of Ander Herrera in return, with Guedes rated at around the €65million mark.
