Manchester United are reportedly not too fussed about Matthijs de Ligt’s proposed move to Barcelona as he was third on their defensive shortlist.

ESPN claim De Ligt, who starred as Ajax reached the Champions League semi-finals, was given the opportunity to move to Old Trafford.

But Barcelona are apparently on the verge of completing a deal for the 19-year-old.

However, Manchester United chiefs are said to have other top targets.

Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly are the preferred options.

That is according to ESPN, who insist the Red Devils would have preferred either man to De Ligt.

“After the final I want to know if they are happy with me or not, but I have two more years on my contract. I like very much the Premier League. It’s the most important championship in the world, I think, it’s very exciting to be here. But now it’s time to think only about the final.

“Chelsea is one of the most important clubs in the Premier League, so I am very very happy, but we have to discuss about the situation. It’s normal in every season at the end you talk with the club.”

Asked about Eden Hazard, Varane added: “I’ve known him since I started with Lens,” he added.

“He is a top player, and as I said before to explain the case of Pogba, he could also play at Madrid.

“He is in the best moment of his career by age and the quality he has.”

“Ederson is running him close, I’d say he has been the best this season, and Alisson has been really good as well.

12:45 UPDATE: Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are holding hope that Borussia Dortmund’s signing of Thorgan Hazard means Jadon Sancho could be on his way to the club.

He’s one of two new faces to already arrive at the Westfalenstadion this summer, alongside midfielder Nico Schulz from Hoffenheim.

A third could follow shortly though after the club were said to have agreed a fee with Bayer Leverkusen for Julian Brandt.

Manchester United supporters are optimistic that the arrival of Hazard means that Dortmund are potentially preparing for the exit of Jadon Sancho.

“There are conversations, but there is still no agreement. With who? The newspapers write, so choose one yourself.”

However, he’s now hinted he’ll be playing his football in the Catalan capital come the start of the 2019-20 season.

“I think he had a great season. He deserves to sign for Barcelona,” De Ligt told Voetbal Primeur when discussing Frankie de Jong’s move to the La Liga giants.

“Play with him there? It would be good to play with Frenkie at a club. But in these moments I don’t know what will happen.”

09:30 UPDATE: Pep Guardiola agreement…

Pep Guardiola has agreed a deal to leave Manchester City and take up the vacant managerial role at Juventus.

That is the extraordinary claim of Italian journalist Federico Gennarelli of Radio Sportiva.

Gennarelli said on Twitter: “It was supposed to be the decisive day. It was: Pep #Guardiola will be the new coach of the #Juventus. 4-year contract. Deal done.”

The claim follows reports from Guardiola’s native Spain that he met with Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici in Milan.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has since rubbished the reports.

“On Pep and Juve. He is staying at Manchester City. No idea where the stories come from, but no truth in them. In fact, it was published he was in Malpensa, when actually at that point he was on the bus in Manchester! By the way, no truth in a new contract being discussed either.”

09:15 UPDATE: Leeds backup wanted

Liverpool are monitoring Leeds defender Leif Davis.

The report claims Liverpool have been ‘monitoring Davis’ progress’ in the Championship under Marcelo Bielsa.

But the £4million-rated 19-year-old made just five appearances.

09:00 UPDATE: Matthijs de Ligt hijack

Barcelona’s move for Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt could be in jeopardy.

That’s according to Catalunya Radio, who claim Manchester United could hijack the deal with a more lucrative offer.

de Ligt, 19, was expected to leave the Eredivisie for Barcelona in a deal worth £60million – but those reports from Sky Sports may have been premature.

Catalunya Radio claim that agent Mino Raiola wants a better financial package for the teenager and believes United are ‘economically more committed’ to the transfer.

Asked if he will be playing alongside Frenkie De Jong at Barcelona, De Ligt replied: “It would be nice to play with Frenkie in a team, but I don’t know if it will happen.”

The Daily Mail claim Barcelona are also ’looking to make a move’ for Mata this summer and their financial muscles could see them beat the Toon.

The United playmaker will reportedly demand wages of £140,000 per-week, which would break Newcastle’s wage structure.

08:30 UPDATE: David De Gea snub

David De Gea has rejected the club’s final contract offer, it has been claimed.

The 28-year-old wants £350,000-a-week at Old Trafford, a sum Woodward and co. are not prepared to offer.

French champions Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing De Gea and would be prepared to pay his wage demands, say The Sun.

PSG are said to be plotting a £60million bid for the goalkeeper this summer.

The 16-year-old is a Poland youth international and has been with Legia Warsaw.

But Football Insider claim it’s the Reds that have won the race, reportedly paying Legia Warsaw £200,000 for Ojrzynski’s services.

He has previously been on trial at Anfield and at United but will now compete for a place in Liverpool’s Under-18s and Under-23s.

07:45 UPDATE: Man Utd swap offer

Manchester United are interested in Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld and the Red Devils are reportedly willing to offer Eric Bailly for the Belgian.

Defence will be an area that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prioritises and while Kalidou Koulibaly remains a target, the Norwegian also wants to bring in Alderweireld.

And with Spurs believed to be keen on Bailly, the Daily Star claim that United could use their defender as bait for Alderweireld.

Despite Alderweireld’s consistent good form, the Belgian’s release clause sits at just £25million after Tottenham took up the option to keep him for an additional year.

07:30 UPDATE: Arsenal talks underway

Arsenal have been locked in talks over Lille forward Nicolas Pepe for over a year.

Express Sport revealed last month that Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool are tracking Lille star Pepe.

Goal add that the Gunners have been locked in talks with Lille for over 12 months.

However, with Pepe netting 22 goals this season, the winger’s asking price has increased.

And Goal say the Gunners may not be able to afford Pepe even if they qualify for the Champions League next season.

07:15 UPDATE: Pulisic on Hazard

Christian Pulisic hopes he can reach the same heights as Eden Hazard when he begins his Chelsea career this summer – and also wants to play alongside the Belgium international next season.

The 20-year-old signed a five-and-a-half year contract at Stamford Bridge in January to move from Borussia Dortmund in a £58million deal which saw him loaned back to the Bundesliga club for the rest of the campaign.

Hazard has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid and has just one year left on his existing contract, with Pulisic set to replace the Belgian if he leaves the Premier League outfit.

“It is incredible to see what Eden can do,” he told BBC Sport. “He is a guy to look up to and what I would love to become. It is definitely a goal. Any player would be dumb not to want to be in the same team as him.”
