Good morning Man Utd fans
Barcelona star and Manchester United target Frenkie de Jong is ready to leave nearly £6million in unpaid wages on the table to secure a move to Manchester City, SunSport’s Phil Thomas reports.
As SunSport recently revealed, new United manager Erik ten wants Hag de Jong, but City boss Pep Guardiola is also a big fan.
Barca are still struggling to emerge from a financial crisis that has seen players defer 40 percent of their salaries for a whole year.
And the Netherlands international is still owed a record sum that he could forego to allow for a move.
Meanwhile, Wolves star Ruben Neves is set to leave the club this season, with United and Barcelona keen.
However, Sport report that Neves is close to finalizing a deal with Barca ahead of the summer transfer window.
The midfielder’s agent is Jorge Mendes and he plays a big role in the ongoing negotiations.
The Portugal international was seen in tears as he said goodbye to Wolves fans after their game against Norwich.
And Juventus are ready to offer Paul Pogba a £8million-a-year payday to re-sign him in the summer transfer window.
This is reported by the Daily Mirror, which reports that Pogba, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has been offered a mega deal by ex-club Juve.
The same report suggests it will be worth £160,000 a week and will include a large sign-up fee as well as bonuses.
The star midfielder left the Bianconeri in 2016 to return to United on a club record deal.
Finally, the Red Devils have received a transfer boost in their bid to sign Benfica star Darwin Nunez as his club are on the verge of signing a replacement.
According to The Athletic, the Portuguese team are planning a nosedive for Stuttgart star Sasa Kalajdzic.
The Lisbon giants are expecting to lose United target Nunez this summer and ideally want a deal to be inked as soon as possible, giving them ample time to fill the void.
Now attempts are being made to bring in Kalajdzic as a replacement for their striker, who has also been linked with Arsenal
