Spanish champions Real Madrid are set to offer Lucas Vazquez a new deal come summer to fend off interest from Manchester United, as per reports from AS in Spain. The La Fabrica product had previously rejected the club's renewal proposals deeming his wages to be too low as the club attempted to impose a wage cut. This has led to interest from Manchester United ahead of the summer.

However, it has now been claimed that Vazquez is set to be handed a new offer with a significant improvement on his current €3.5m-a-season. Apart from the wage hike, which is believed to be in the region of a further €1.5m a year, Vazquez will also remain at the club for three more years as well. This could come as a huge blow to Manchester United's transfer plans.

Edinson Cavani to remain at Manchester United

Amidst immense speculation over his future at the club, it has been widely reported that Edinson Cavani is set to remain at Manchester United for a further year. The Uruguayan superstar has been linked with a move to South America to be closer to his family amidst the ongoing pandemic.

Cavani has now reportedly made up his mind to stay at the club for another year, giving Manchester United a huge boost heading into the transfer market as they can focus on strengthening other positions. Cavani has been in sublime form for the Red Devils and starred in their 6-2 demolition of AS Roma with two goals and two assists.

Juventus 'desperate' to sign Bruno Fernandes

Italian champions Juventus are 'desperate' to sign Bruno Fernandes as they 'fell in love' with him during his time in Italy, as per a report from Calciomercato. The Portuguese superstar has been one of the best players in world football since his arrival from Sporting CP in 2020 and has garnered interest from the Bianconeri, who reportedly eyed a move for him earlier in his career.

Apart from Juventus, AC Milan have also been tipped as suitors for Fernandes. The Rossoneri reportedly came close to signing him on two occasions in the past, once in 2015 and once last year, when he ultimately opted to move to Old Trafford. The report claims Juventus are 'regretting' not signing Fernandes earlier as they can't afford his curre transfer fee, which is believed to be in excess of £100m.
