Man Utd News Transfer LIVE: Ed Woodward surprised with Manchester City’s plan to offer £ 86m to Bruno Fernandez
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho remains Chelsea’s top target.
That’s according to Goal, who claim the club are prepared break their transfer record to lure the England international to Stamford Bridge.
It’s believed Manchester United’s interest in the 19-year-old has made Roman Abramovich and Co. more willing to submit an offer well in excess of £70million.
Sancho shares close ties with England colleagues Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham and that is reportedly another draw for the attacker, who supports Chelsea.
Abel Ruiz to Sporting Lisbon
Sporting Lisbon are finalising a deal for Barcelona talent Abel Ruiz.
Spanish publication Sport claim Ruiz, 19, is set to complete an 18-month loan to the Portuguese side with only a few formalities left to resolve.
Valencia and a few other clubs had shown interest in the centre-forward, who has scored twice and provided three assists for Barcelona B this season.
The two parties are still negotiating a purchase option and a buy-back clause but Ruiz is likely to arrive in Lisbon to complete a medical in the next few days.
Manchester City are preparing to hijack Manchester United’s pursuit of Bruno Fernandes.
Thats the audacious claim from Portuguese newspaper Correio de Manha, who claim Pep Guardiola wants the 25-year-old at the Etihad Stadium.
Ed Woodward and Co. have been busy trying to negotiate a deal for the Portuguese midfielder but talks have stalled over a fee.
And that could open the door for City.
Correio de Manha claim the Premier League champions are prepared to pay around £86million (€100m) for Fernandes – but only at the end of the current campaign.
