Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd, Arsenal and Real Madrid rumours as PSG propose Neymar swap

Neymar’s Paris Saint-Germain exit looks a mere formality now with Barcelona the favourites, but Real Madrid not completely out of the picture. 

Premier League clubs may yet sell some of their players to trim down their squads too: Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen have been linked with moves away. 

Paul Pogba now looks set to stay, despite Real Madrid and Juventus linked throughout the summer.

Paulo Dybala is so far resisting Juventus’ attempts to push him out the door, while the likes of Bayern and PSG continue to look for solutions as they finalise their squads. 

Here are the latest rumours and done deals from across Europe. 

The fallout from last night is currently occurring. 


Liverpool flipped the game at half-time thanks to the introduction of Roberto Firmino. 


Here, Miguel Delaney delves into the connection he possesses with Sadio Mane and what it means for Jurgen Klopp’s side moving forward as they aim to extend their outstanding run as they battle with Manchester City. 


Dani Olmo, who was linked with Liverpool and Spurs this summer, is a target for Ajax. 


The Dutch club have made an offer for the Dynamo Zagreb forward. 


The Croatian side will not budge on the asking price though: €40m. 


Ajax have offered €22m plus 40 per cent of a future sale, claim Mundo Deportivo.

Barcelona are analysing who they could put into a package to convince PSG to sell Neymar. 


Principally it’s Philippe Coutinho. 


While Ivan Rakitic is another option. Despite PSG admiring the player, Nelson Semedo is considered untransferable, according to Mundo Deportivo. 


Samuel Umtiti would be considered by PSG, but Barcelona do not want to be left with just three centre-backs. 


Arturo Vidal is another option to lower the Neymar price, as Thomas Tuchel admires the Chilean. 

Neymar is training by himself since Wednesday, claim Esporte Interactivo. 


The Brazilian will continue to do so until a move is finalised, they add. 



Alexis Sanchez is refusing to leave Manchester United. 


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is threatening to send him to the reserves with Roma dropping their interest for now, report the Sun. 


AC Milan, Napoli and Juventus are still keen though, claim the Mail. 


The Chilean’s wages, which are reported by some to be as much as £500,000 per week when bonuses are met, will prove a problem in any such deal.

Spurs target Nicolo Zaniolo has signed a new contract at Roma. 


The 20-year-old has extended his deal until 2024. 


“A year ago it was an easy decision to choose Roma, and today it is even easier. I would like to thank the club for giving me the opportunity to tie myself even closer to these colours – it is exactly what I wanted.”

Inter, Napoli and Roma are discussion a treble move that could see each club solve a problem within their squad. 


Roma (with Edin Dzeko), Inter (with Mauro Icardi) and Napoli (Arek Milik) have strikers they either do not want or are trying to sell. 


The report suggests Napoli will take Icardi off Inter’s hands, then send Milik to the Giallorossi, who will then send Dzeko to the San Siro to link up with Antonio Conte. 



Inter Milan have fixed the price for Mauro Icardi, report Tuttosport. 


It’s €80m (£74m) despite freezing the Argentine out and handing his No 9 shirt to Romelu Lukaku. 


The 26-year-old has two years left on his deal at the San Siro, making that price somewhat optimistic, even if it matches up with the total fee they are likely to pay Man United for Lukaku. 

Real Madrid have knocked back Paris Saint-Germain’s proposal to send Vinicius Jr to the French capital in exchange for Neymar. 


It’s a flat no from Los Blancos, who do not want to surrender perhaps the next great Brazilian forward for the current king. 


Barcelona remain active in talks too, report AS and Marca. 

Welcome to the Independent’s live coverage of European transfer news. 


With the window still open across Europe, clubs are frantically doing business, while Premier League clubs will be wary of offers for their players without the ability to replace them.
