  • Manchester United’s pursuit of Bruno Fernandes has hit a stumbling block

Bruno Fernandes swap

Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United appears to be edging closer.

Now, reports in Portugal have claimed Ed Woodward has offered Andreas Pereira to the club in order to land the Sporting Lisbon star.

Joel Pereira, Angel Gomes and Marcos Rojo plus cash have all been offered so far.

But Woodward has now put Andreas Pereira’s name on the table instead to try and convince Sporting to sell, Portuguese newspaper A Bola claim.

Ambitious Newcastle swoop

Newcastle might scupper Chelsea’s hopes of signing Moussa Dembele this month if Steve Bruce gets his way and Mike Ashley stumps up the cash for the in-demand Lyon striker.

Express Sport understands Frank Lampard and Manchester United counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are interested in bringing Dembele back to the UK, where he’s previously shone for Fulham and Celtic.

However, with Newcastle not yet clear of relegation danger, Bruce wants to add some fire-power to his Toon side and has got Dembele in his sights.

The Daily Star report St James’ Park boss Bruce would ‘love’ to compete for Dembele before the transfer window slams shut at the end of this month.

Bruno Fernandes problem

Manchester United’s pursuit of Portugal star Bruno Fernandes has hit a stumbling block.

And that’s because Ed Woodward can’t agree terms with Sporting Lisbon.

The Daily Mail claim United’s executive vice-chairman is offering £50million plus a further £10m in performance-related add-ons.

However, Sporting are holding out for £64m up front without the addition of any players like Marcos Rojo or Angel Gomes heading in the opposite direction.

The Red Devils, who are fifth in the Premier League, are looking to strengthen their midfield for the remainder of the campaign with record signing Paul Pogba recovering from ankle surgery and Scott McTominay nursing a knee injury.

Mauricio Pochettino talks

Manchester United have been holding secret talks with former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino about taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, any appointment is unlikely to happen before the end of the season.

“What I’ve been told is United have been talking with Mauricio Pochettino for a few weeks now,” Beyond the Pitch and talkSPORT journalist Phil Brown said on Twitter.

“He doesn’t want the job until the end of the season. They’ve been talking to Pochettino for a few weeks but most likely if anything happens it’ll be at the end of the season.”

Donny van de Beek latest

Donny van de Beek is open to a move to England with Manchester United said to be keeping tabs.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the £50million-rated midfielder as he seeks to strengthen his midfield at Old Trafford.

And while Van de Beek has publicly dismissed the possibility of a mid-season exit amid links to United, Sky Sports claim he has other ideas regarding a summer switch.

It is suggested Van de Beek is open to a move to the Premier League at the end of the season if offers are made.

Raul Jimenez latest

Manchester United could sign Wolves striker Raul Jimenez but not until the summer, says Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

The Red Devils are said to be “very interested” in signing Jimenez after tracking his progress in the Premier League.

“Manchester United have been watching him very, very closely, he’s a player they’re very interested in,” Solhekol said.

“But I just don’t think Wolves would sell him in January, halfway through a season in which they’re doing so well. But it is something that could potentially happen in the summer.”

Fabian Ruiz latest

New boss Quique Setien once blocked Barcelona’s approach for Fabian Ruiz.

The Spanish champions, along with rivals Real Madrid and Manchester United, have been linked with £86million-rated Ruiz over the past several months.

But Barcelona could have snapped him up for a paltry £850k in 2017.

Setien was a big fan of Ruiz during their time together at Real Betis and personally blocked Barcelona’s approach for the midfielder before his £25m transfer to Napoli the following year.

Dani Olmo U-turn

Barcelona are no longer interested in signing Dinamo Zagreb winger Dani Olmo.

And that’s good news for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, who are eager to sign the one-capped Spanish international.

The Catalan giants were leading Chelsea and Manchester United in the race to sign the 21-year-old attacking talent.

But Mundo Deportivo claim Barcelona have withdrawn their interest – handing the Premier League duo a free run at completing a deal for Olmo.

Antonio Conte double swoop

Antonio Conte has been given the green light to complete two Premier League signings.

That’s according to Italian website Calciomercato, who claim Inter Milan directors are ready give the manager exactly what he’s asked for.

It’s said Inter are putting together the finishing touches to a deal for Manchester United defender Ashley Young.

Directors are also reported to be close to completing a deal for Olivier Giroud after successfully lowering Chelsea’s valuation to £1.7million.
