Raphael Varane to undergo Man Utd medical on Wednesday

Raphael Varane to undergo Man Utd medical on Wednesday

Sports Betting Odds - Raphael Varane is set to undergo a medical at Manchester United and could be announced as their latest signing within days. The Real Madrid defender has been United's main transfer target since they ended their long-running pursuit of Jadon Sancho, but it doesn't look as if this saga will drag on for anywhere near as long. The 28-year-old is said to have his heart set on heading to the Premier League side, where he will partner Harry Maguire in the middle of a fearsome looking back line. Real, meanwhile, haven't put up too much of a fight - Varane wants to leave, and is out of contract in a year's time. Negotiations have been steadily progressing for a couple of weeks now, and it was reported on Sunday that a deal could be announced 'within hours.' That did...

Chelsea & Liverpool ‘make contact’ with agent of Saul Niguez

Sports Betting Odds - Chelsea and Liverpool have both reached out to the agent of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez to discuss a potential transfer. Saul will be allowed to leave Atletico this summer after tumbling down the pecking order under Diego Simeone, and he has already been replaced in the squad by Argentine playmaker Rodrigo de Paul. He had been expected to join Barcelona in a trade for Antoine Griezmann, but talks over that deal have broken down and Atletico are now looking at the idea of sending Saul to England, where he has plenty of suitors. According to Marca, both Chelsea and Liverpool are wrestling to get to the front of the queue for his signature and have met with the 26-year-old's representatives to discuss what would be needed to sign him.

Paul Pogba rejects new Man Utd contract offer – likely to leave this summer

Online Betting Malaysia - Manchester United will look to offload Paul Pogba this summer after the Frenchman rejected the offer of a new contract worth £50m. Pogba's future has never been far from the back pages since re-joining United in 2016, with Real Madrid continually expressing their interest in the midfielder. With just one year remaining on his current deal, United had hoped to tie Pogba down to a lucrative new contract to avoid the risk of losing him for free next year - but the Mirror report that they'll look to sell him this summer after he rejected their latest £350,000-per-week offer. News of Paul Pogba’s possible availability has alerted the attention of Paris Saint-Germain, with the Ligue 1 outfit ready to table a £45m bid - £5m short of the Premier League outfit's...
Eden Hazard ‘offered back’ to Chelsea by Real Madrid

Eden Hazard ‘offered back’ to Chelsea by Real Madrid

Sports Betting Odds - Real Madrid are looking to sell winger Eden Hazard this summer and intermediaries working on behalf of the club have reached out to Chelsea to try send the Belgian back to Stamford Bridge. Hazard was a fan favourite at Chelsea between 2012 and 2019, but his blockbuster move to Real, which is worth up to £150m, has not gone according to plan. Injuries have prevented him from producing his best form and Los Blancos are now keen to cut their losses and get rid. The problem for Real is there are few sides willing to pay a sizeable transfer fee or meet Eden Hazard's wages, so club officials are left with very few options when it comes to offloading the 30-year-old. Their latest tactic, according to AS, is to reach out to Chelsea to gauge their interest in bringi...

Real Madrid not looking to offload Vinicius Junior

Online Betting Sites - Real Madrid have no plans to sell Brazilian winger Vinicius Junior this summer, despite suggestions he had been offered to Manchester United. Los Blancos are on a fundraising mission as they look to generate the funds needed to sign Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe - though that move is more likely next summer - with the likes of Raphael Varane, Eden Hazard and Isco all thought to be on the market for the right price. United are looking to snap up Varane, and recently, it was suggested by The Mirror that Real had thrown around the idea of Vinicius making the move to Old Trafford as well, with the Spanish side claimed to be hopeful of bringing in a big fee for the 21-year-old. However, that has since been debunked by a number of sources. Firstly, we...
Real Madrid offer Vinicius to Manchester United

Real Madrid offer Vinicius to Manchester United

Sports Betting Odds - During the conversations between Manchester United and Real Madrid for Varane, Madrid put forward the possibility of United taking Vinicius as well, The Mirror reports. United have already reached an agreement for the French centre-back, and have shown interest in taking Vinicius. The main problem at the moment is Madrid's asking price - 70 million euros, while United's idea would be for a one-year loan with the option to buy the player next year. Madrid would be willing to sell the Brazilian forward to bring in cash to fund their operation to sign Kylian Mbappé this summer. United however, aren't looking to spend much more this summer as they have already laid out 85 million for Jadon Sancho - plus what they will pay for Varane, another costly operation. Uni...

Roman Abramovich ‘releases funds’ for Chelsea Erling Haaland bid

Online Betting Malaysia - Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has set aside the £150m needed to bid for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer. Chelsea are ready to shell out up to £150m on Haaland as Abramovich sees him as a generational talent who can take the team to a new level for the next decade. As noted by Bild, Abramovich has taken one step further in his pursuit of the 20-year-old and has 'released the funds' for a £150m bid and there is a confidence that Dortmund will be convinced to sell at that price. That's also backed up by Jan Aage Fjortoft, who claims Chelsea are on the cusp of submitting a 'big offer', although there is no mention of just how much that could be. While £150m may be an enormous sum of money, Chelsea expect to be able to pay the f...
