Manchester United transfer news: £55M deal for Premier League defender, Update on Willian and more – 21st May 2018
Manchester United eye Toby Alderweireld
Manchester United are working on a deal to sign Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham this summer as per Manchester Evening News. The report claims that United are ready to offer £55 million to sign the defender.
Spurs are looking to offload the Belgian as he is not willing to sign a new contract. He has 2 years left on his contract but next summer, a £25 million clause can be activated by any club interested in signing him.
Jose Mourinho is keen on signing him despite having Lindelof, Bailly, Smalling, Rojo and Jones in the squad.
Willian keen on leaving Chelsea
Manchester United have been handed a huge boost as Sky Sports report that Willian is keen on leaving Chelsea if Antonio Conte remains their manager. The Brazilian is not happy with the playing time he is getting and is looking to leave the club.
Willian hinted at a rift between him and the manager by editing Conte out of his Instagram story. The winger posted a photo of the team celebrating their FA Cup win but covered the manager with emojis.
Jose Mourinho was keen on signing him last summer as well but only managed to get Matic from the Chelsea. The Blues are said to be keen on signing Martial and a swap deal might be on the cards.
Fellaini set for AC Milan move
Marouane Fellaini is to join AC Milan if reports in The Times are to be believed. They claim that the Serie A side have offered him a 3-year contract already and are waiting for his answer.
AC Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli added fuel to the fire by saying, "We know he [Fellaini] is not going to renew with United, but it's difficult to say that we have closed the deal."
