Man Utd in contact with Adrien Rabiot
Manchester United are in contact with Juventus midfielder agent Adrien Rabiot, reportedly. The Red Devils are said to take the possible 25-year-old player seriously.
Calciomercato they claim that the star's representatives are constantly communicating with United and Everton.
United are interested in signing Rabiot as a stand-alone deal or as an exchange that would send Paul Pogba to Juventus.
A possible obstacle would be the large salary that the Frenchman would demand, but the Red Devils could pay for it.
This is despite the coronavirus pandemic, which can affect clubs financially.
The reports go so far as to state that Everton coach Carlo Ancelotti tried to sign Rabiot in the January transfer window.

Dries Mertens to Chelsea update
Chelsea coach Frank Lampard has rekindled the transfer rumors after following Dries Mertens on Instagram and contacting Napoli directly.
The Blues are looking for reinforcements this summer and are said to have identified Mertens as a priority target.
Complaints from Italy earlier this week suggest that Lampard has already decided to focus on securing a deal for Mertens, who has not yet signed a contract renewal with Napoli and will become a free agent in June.
And now Il Mattino also reports that Mertens is the first name on Chelsea's list and that the Blues boss has contacted the Belgian international to reveal his intentions for the next transfer window.
The allegations follow the revelation that Lampard has started following Mertens on Instagram, with Chelsea manager's latest social media activity picked up by eagle-eyed fans.
Lampard follows only 294 other users on the platform, despite having 4.1 million followers.

Timo Werner smoke screen
Liverpool could be using their new stance on Timo Werner as a smokescreen to conclude the deal.
The Reds are said to have been in the back seat in the race for the German in recent weeks.
There were even some suggestions that Premier League leaders could not sign anyone this season.
But in 2018, Liverpool would be out of contention for Alisson.
They seemed to withdraw interest in the goalkeeper, but days later the deal was made.
By staying quiet, Liverpool can act stealthily to finalize a move to Werner if they wish.

Newcastle's Odion Ighalo
Newcastle is interested in making a shock transfer to Odion Ighalo as soon as the £ 300 million acquisition is completed. The former Watford player is currently on loan at Manchester United.
But the Magpies could attack this summer and take the Nigerians to the northeast, while trying to establish themselves as a force in the Premier League.
Ighalo is due to return to Shanghai Shenhua for the start of the new Chinese Super League season, scheduled to start in July.
United wants to extend their loan contract so that the 30-year-old can help him if the Premier League restarts in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Shanghai Shenhua will only allow Ighalo to stay at Old Trafford if it pays £ 20 million to make the deal permanent.
AND Sky Sports they claim Newcastle could kidnap them by hiring the striker once their acquisition is officially approved.

What Donny van de Beek said about the transfer
Manchester United and Newcastle are interested in signing Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek this summer when the transfer window opens.
And the Dutchman spoke earlier about the prospect of leaving the club.
Van de Beek is one of the best ranked midfielders in Europe and has impressed again this season.
The 23-year-old scored 10 goals and gave 11 assists in all competitions to keep those on high alert.
And comments last October suggest that he may now be talking to clubs about his future.
"I don't want to leave during the January transfer window," he told Voetbal International.
“I will play here until the end of the season; I will end the year at Ajax. It gives me peace of mind.
“Let's see what happens next. Do they know that in Madrid?
“Certainly everyone knows. I don't like the idea of changing teams in mid-season. "

Chelsea's signature welcomed
Hakim Ziyech is good enough to go straight to Chelsea's starting lineup when he arrives at the club, says Jesper Gronkjaer.
"It was Ziyech that caught my eye for the past two seasons, despite not being produced by the Ajax academy," said Gronkjaer.
"You need players like that. I think every major club has already looked at Ziyech and asked the question whether he is good enough for our team."
"He is a fantastic player, but I think for Chelsea he will be in the starting XI immediately.
"Almost all Premier League clubs can afford someone like Ziyech. Newcastle will be there competing in the market again. It's a good sign and he will start a lot."
"Furthermore, we still need to see Christian Pulisic's true potential, because he will also be a great player. So these are things that we look forward to with Chelsea."

Man Utd said he made a transfer error
Inter Milan legend Ivan Cordoba criticized Manchester United for not understanding Romelu Lukaku, defeating the Belgian last year after two torrid years at Old Trafford.
"Lukaku is an extraordinary player," said Córdoba.
"Manchester United did not understand the potential of the player and his last season was bad for him.
"In my opinion, Lukaku is proving that everyone is a champion.
"He is determined and the Premier League has improved him a lot. I met him: he is a positive leader in the locker rooms.
"It is a pity that Manchester United sold him, but I am happy that Inter bought him. Antonio Conte was instrumental in his form at Inter."

Newcastle sent Kalidou Koulibaly's warning
Newcastle United have been warned that Kalidou Koulibaly is not as good as before.
Italian football specialist Aurelio Capaldi said: "I think Kouliably needs a new experience and Napoli would also be happy to let him go if they could get a good offer".
"Newcastle has been a whisper, but I think it is not the same situation, for example, last year, because Koulibaly's last season was not so good."
"He had a lot of physical problems, injuries, basically made mistakes and went unnoticed.
"So I think Napoli is happy to let him go, if he gets the right money, but now it is difficult to identify the right amount, because Koulibaly is not the player he used to be at the moment. So this is something that should be discussed.
"Koulibaly is earning about 7 million euros a season and, as you may remember two years ago, market reports said there were clubs ready to buy him for 100 million euros.
"I think that is not the case now, not only because of Koulibaly's recent performances, not only because of the injuries he has had to face, but also because the market has changed and the market is still changing."
"Everyone is trying to understand the new shape of the market. I think Napoli is trying to find the right balance between the value they give the player and the realistic offer that will come."

Jack Grealish & # 39; will leave & # 39; Villa
Manchester United transfer target Jack Grealish will leave Aston Villa 100% this summer if the Villans are relegated, says Paul Merson.
"I would say 100% (Grealish leaves). If Villa goes down, I think they will get rid of Jack and he will be sold," said Merson.
"He is a man from the Villa, he loves Aston Villa.
"But he will have to move on, there is no doubt about it if he wants to improve himself.
"It is horrible to say that, improve yourself, because it is a great club, but he will have to play in the Premier League."

Arsenal set a June 15 deadline for Real Madrid for a decision on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's future. Los Blancos wants to sign the Gabon international, but is waiting to see what happens in the Emirates.
Aubameyang has only a 13-month contract with the club and there is much speculation about his future.
Real Madrid is one of several clubs linked to the former Borussia Dortmund player, including Chelsea and Manchester United.
Arsenal must make a decision between cashing Aubameyang now or risking losing it on a free transfer next summer.
Real are eager, but to plan their window, they need to know what is happening to the 30-year-old until June 15, according to the newspaper. Mirror.
One option that could be explored is a swap agreement that could see Dani Ceballos make his loan contract permanent at Arsenal.
