Man Utd open talks
Manchester United have opened talks to sign Barcelona defender Jordi Alba, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claim.
They reckon the Red Devils have ‘made contact’ with Alba’s representatives.
Alba, 29, has 18 months remaining on his contract but Barcelona are yet to offer the Spanish international an extension.
Mundo Deportivo claim United chiefs have told Vicente Fores, Alaba’s agent, that they would like to secure his signature because Jose Mourinho is dissatisfied with his options at left-back.
Chelsea swap deal
Chelsea star Willian could be on his way to Barcelona, with Malcom heading in the opposite direction, it’s claimed.
And according to Spanish TV station La Sexta, Willian is heading to Barca – and the deal may be imminent.
They add that Barca will pay up to £75m (€80m), however, Malcom could be included in the deal to drop the transfer fee.
Malcom joined the Spanish giants in the summer from Bordeaux in a £36m deal.
Rangers want to sign FOUR new players in January, Express Sport can reveal.
Manager Steven Gerrard is keen to continue his strong start to the season and inject additional quality into the side.
Rangers want another striker, creative player, a midfielder and a defender through the doors at Ibrox in the New Year.
This is despite Ibrox chiefs last week announcing a loss in excess of £14million for the year up to June.
