Hello and welcome to the Premier League transfer news and rumours of the day! Here are the top stories of the day surrounding the Premier League.
Update on Origi's contract
Divock Origi has been offered a new contract by Liverpool, according to Kristof Terreur. Origi played a huge role in Liverpool's comback against Barcelona and Terreur claims that the Red spoke to his agent after the final.
He also added both the parties have reached an advance stage of negotiations but the Belgian is yet to make a decision as he is still on vacation. Terreur also stated that the forward has been promised a more prominent role with Sturridge's departure from Anfield this summer.
“They [Liverpool] already offered him [Origi] a new contract before the Champions League final,” Terreur told the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast.
“There were some talks with his agent after the final.
“They were advanced negotiations but the player didn’t make his decision yet. He’s still on holiday.
“He has been promised a more advanced role now Sturridge has left.
“He’s basically the back-up for Mane, Salah and Firmino. He’s basically the first back-up for them.
United reject huge offer from Madrid
Football consultant Ian McGarry has claimed that Real Madrid made a huge bid of €100 million plus Dani Ceballos for Manchester United's Paul Pogba. The Red Devils, however, rejected the bid as they only want cash for the former Juventus star.
"I was told that Madrid did make an initial offer last Thursday, which was of €100m [£90m] plus Dani Ceballos - who has been starring for Spain’s Under-21s in their European Under-21 championship campaign,” McGarry said on The Transfer Window podcast.
“However, United turned that down flat and said that they were only interested in cash."
