Arnautovic move off

15:00: Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will not move for West Ham star Marko Arnautovic this summer.

According to The Times, United’s decision to keep hold of Marouane Fellaini has ended Mourinho’s interest in signing Hammers star Arnautovic.

They say Arnautovic was seen as a potential replacement for Belgium international Fellaini.

However, the United midfielder has agreed a two-year contract extension with the Red Devils, keeping him at the club until 2020.

Kroos to Man Utd

13:00: Spanish newspaper AS say Manchester United will try to sign Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos this summer.

They say Mourinho had a meeting with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward – and he’s told him to move for Kroos.

Transfer news: Toni Kroos

Mourinho reportedly sees Kroos as the perfect signing to help Paul Pogba shine at Old Trafford.

AS say United are desperate to keep Mourinho satisfied and they’ll make a great offer for the ex-Bayern Munich ace this summer.

Ramsey boost

11:50: Aaron Ramsey’s contract talks with Arsenal gave reportedly handed the club optimism that a new long-term deal will be signed.

Ramsey’s contract deal expires at the end of next season and talks with the club over a renewal have progressed slowly.

After losing Alexis Sanchez in January after he entered the final six months of his contract, Arsenal are reluctant to lose another of their key players.

According to The Telegraph, positive talks have taken place and Ramsey is “enthused” at working with Emery.

It is claimed the expectation is that Ramsey will sign a new four or five-year contract with a significant wage increase.

Milinkovic-Savic speaks out
10:45: Sergej Mikinkovic-Savic says he will be happy if he stays at Lazio but needs time to think about his future.

The Serbian midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United but it seems the Red Devils face a tough task in prising him away from Italy.

“I need a little bit of rest now,” he said.

“I’ll return to Rome and I would be happy if I stay at Lazio, as I’m content there and I have a contract.

“I read something different in the papers every day, but I haven’t thought about it yet. First, I’ll rest for a bit, then we’ll see.”

 

Merino out

09.45: Mikel Merino is set to join Real Sociedad from Newcastle.

The La Liga side are set to trigger his £10m release clause, according to the Newcastle Chronicle.

Merino has made it clear he wants the move and has already agreed a five-year deal.

And Sociedad head coach Asier Garitano has confirmed the deal is close.

“Until it becomes official, no, and I think it still has not been finalised,” Garitano, who tried to sign Merino for Leganes when the midfielder was still at Osasuna, replied when asked if Sociedad had completed the signing of Merino on Radio Euskadi .

“He’s someone I’ve know for many years, when we played against Osasuna with Leganes in the Segunda Division.

“It could be a good signing for us. He has been at important clubs like Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle – and, at the age of 21, he has a great future ahead of him. We hope it can be completed.”

Mourinho’s requests

09:30: Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants Ed Woodward to splash the cash this summer and has three targets in mind.

The Times say the Special One has told United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to sign a centre-back and a left-back.

Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld and Juventus star Alex Sandro are top targets for the Red Devils.

Mourinho also wants a marquee signing with Gareth Bale at the top of his wishlist.
Son eyed
08:55: Arsenal are among a host of clubs interest in signing Spurs attacker Heung-Min Son.

According to German outlet Sport1, the South Korean is a target for the Gunners, Manchester United and Liverpool.

The report claims Son wants to take the next step in his career and believes he has to leave Spurs to do that.

Reds sign Gerrard’s cousin

08:10: Liverpool have reached an agreement to sign Steven Gerrard’s cousin, Bobby Duncan.

The teenager leaves Manchester City following a year-long contract dispute that has prevented him playing club football for a year.

And the 17-year-old, a star for England at youth level, will follow in his cousin’s footsteps by coming through the ranks at Anfield instead.

Liverpool will pay a £200,000 compensation fee to City for the player’s development after Duncan had refused a professional contract a year ago over concerns about progression to the first-team.

Duncan will start in Liverpool’s under-18s and under-23s squads.

Lewandowksi to Chelsea

07:30: Robert Lewandowski to be the subject of a four-way summer tug-of-war, according to Ladbrokes.

The Bayern Munich striker could leave the Bundesliga during this transfer window, and the bookies make FOUR clubs 5/1 or shorter for his signature.

As things stand it’s Real Madrid who lead the way for his signature at 5/2, but 7/2 says Chelsea make a shock move.

Elsewhere, Man United and PSG are both 5/1 shots to seal a deal, with Man City out at 10/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Lewandowski could be the answer to Chelsea’s striker woes, with the betting suggesting they’re the most likely Prem side to make a move for the forward.”

Former Arsenal defender, Martin Keown, has told Manchester United players to ignore instructions from manager Jose Mourinho and take matters into their own hands.

The Red Devils travel to Anfield on Sunday to take on title-chasing Liverpool, 16 points behind their bitter rivals.

A much-changed United side slipped to another demoralising defeat against Valencia in midweek and Keown believes Mourinho’s men are turning in the worst performances he has seen in 25 years.

“These performances are some of the worst we’ve seen from United in 25 years,” Keown told Football Focus.

“They are there for the taking – these United players almost need to stop listening to their manager now.

“If this is how they’re being told to play, the players are on their own – I don’t know the identity of this United team.

“They’re almost dreading games. Whether they change the manager is another thing but every game feels like a crisis now.

“Mourinho has an incredible job there but the ‘special one’ has become the ‘lonely one’.

“He’s almost enjoying the process of it coming to an end.”

Manager Ernesto Valverde has now instructed the French winger, to keep his phone on all the time, so that he can be contactable if another issue arises.

Valverde is said to be content with the player’s improvement off the pitch and believes he has taken positive steps towards changing his attitude.

It is believed Dembele enjoys playing video games and watching TV until the early hours of the morning, which is the main issue.
