Manchester United and Inter Milan are ready to trade two frustrated midfielders, Liverpool are chasing a €35m Udinese man, while Leeds are looking at a Spezia striker, according to Thursday’s Euro Paper Talk.


Manchester United are ready to agree to let ‘unhappy’ midfielder star Donny van de Beek depart Old Trafford this month.

United swooped to sign the highly-rated 23-year-old from Ajax for an initial £34.1m. But things have not gone as smoothly as the Holland international had expected.

Indeed, he has been limited to just two Premier League starts.

Van de Beek has kept a dignified silence over his situation. However, a report last week claimed he was refusing press interviews so unhappy he is at his situation at Old Trafford.

Now, reports claim United are ready to relent and allow Van de Beek to depart. As per Calciomercato, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now reluctantly accepted the midfielder will move on this month.

They claim Van de Beek is concerned about his European Championship place with Holland this summer.

However, a solution is set to present itself in the shape of Inter Milan. The report claims Antonio Conte’s side are keen to sign Van de Beek and have proposed a swap deal with United.

That would see former Tottenham man Christian Eriksen head to Old Trafford in an exchange loan.

The Dane has lost his way at the San Siro after arriving from North London last January.

He’s keen on a return to the Premier League and has been offered to several suitors.

The report claims all parties are open to the trade and the temporary deal could be beneficial for all concerned.
