Manchester City has agreed to terms on a £500,000-per-week contract with Erling Haaland, with the club ready to activate his £63 million release clause at Borussia Dortmund and sign the striker within the next two weeks.
Real Madrid decided against signing the Norwegian because his lucrative deal would have disturbed their wage structure, and they have their sights set on Paris Saint-Kylian Germain’s Mbappe.
Meanwhile, Los Blancos have been keeping an eye on Chelsea’s Reece James, who plays as a flying full-back. This season alone, scouts have watched him multiple times. Real are also after Blues centre-back Antonio Rudiger, who has a contract expiring in June.
Arsenal are interested in signing Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio, who has reportedly ruled out a move to AC Milan.
Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United’s interim manager, says the club must follow Liverpool’s lead in the transfer market to prevent more years in the wilderness.
Juventus are interested in signing United midfielder Paul Pogba on a free transfer, but PSG will be a strong contender.
West Ham has surfaced as a summer transfer target for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, who impressed against them at the weekend.
Ajax is demanding €30 million for precocious midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who is a Bayern Munich target. The Bavarians, on the other hand, believe the figure is too excessive for a player who will be out of contract in 2023.
Die Roten are also interested in RB Leipzig workhorse Konrad Laimer, but a trade for his teammate Christopher Nkunku is improbable. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich is claimed to have signed Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax, while Freiburg’s Nico Schlotterbeck will not be joining them at the Allianz Arena.
Serge Gnabry, a rumored Liverpool target, is in talks with Bayern Munich over a new deal, but the club is unwilling to grant the wide player a major pay hike after months of negotiations.
This summer, PSG will let three Argentina internationals leave the club. Midfielder Leandro Paredes and striker Mauro Icardi are both available, while winger Angel Di Maria has already agreed to leave.
