David de Gea demand
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign a David De Gea replacement this summer, according to reports.
The Red Devils have tried to tie the Spain international down to a new contract but, with PSG and Juventus circling, they have been unable to reach an agreement.
And, now, journalist Duncan Castles has claimed that Solskjaer is looking to replace De Gea this summer.
Castles told The Transfer Window podcast: “[Solskjaer’s] looking for a goalkeeper who is more comfortable with the ball at his feet.
“So it seems Solskjaer is saying ‘if I have to change, I’m gonna use this as an opportunity to change tactically and sign a goalkeeper who would be comfortable playing the ball from the back and playing behind a high line.’”
Paul Pogba price-tag
Manchester United want to keep hold of Paul Pogba this summer and have reportedly set a price tag of £140million.
There are expected to be many comings and goings in the summer with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial potential departures.
Pogba has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer but TuttoMercatoWeb report that United are keen to keep hold of the Frenchman.
And to scare off any potential suitors, it’s claimed that Manchester United have put a €160m (£140m) tag on the World Cup winning midfielder.
Inter Milan want Romelu Lukaku
Inter Milan are gearing up to sign Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, reports claim.
Lukaku, 26, arrived at Old Trafford from Everton in a deal worth £75million and fired in 27 goals during his debut season.
However, the Belgian international lost his place to Marcus Rashford this season following the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And now Manchester United are ready to cash in.
FC Inter News claim the Red Devils are prepared to listen to offers in the region of £52million for Lukaku.
But with the Serie A club’s summer budget believed to be £44million – Inter will use Ivan Perisic as a makeweight in a deal that would lower the fee to £26m.
Thomas Partey release clause
Manchester United have found their new Ander Herrera.
That’s according to Football Ghana, who claim Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey.
Herrera announced the end of his five-year stint at Old Trafford last week and work to find his successor is already underway.
Football Ghana say the Red Devils are eager to trigger the £43.5million release clause in Partey’s contract.
