Man United to spend &pound80m on Ligue 1 duo Bernardo Silva, Blaise Matuidi

Reports of a potential Neymar move to Man United have the FC crew examining why he would leave Barcelona for Old Trafford.

Shaka Hislop finds it hard to justify why Neymar would want to make a move to Manchester United.

The football world’s gossip mill is in full swing, and Transfer Talk is monitoring the whispers ahead of all the summer moves. Check out the latest deals and potential deals here.

Jose lines up double Ligue 1 raid

Jose Mourinho has set his sights on a star duo from Ligue 1 and the Express believes Manchester United will splash £80 million on the pair.

The Red Devils want Bernardo Silva from Monaco to give them craft and ingenuity, with Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi in order to bring energy and physicality.

Paul Pogba has been left exposed at times this season and has seen his potential limited without a regular holding midfielder.

Mourinho has chopped and changed his attacking midfielders this term with Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan carrying the side for creativity in spells.

Silva, playing off the right, has brought Les Rouges et Blancs that unpredictability and United are now circling for one of Europe’s finest playmakers.

City to sanction Hart to United

Continuing on from Saturday’s big rumour, Manchester City appears set to sanction one of the most controversial transfers in history with Joe Hart joining Manchester United, claims the Mirror.

The report states that City have resigned themselves to letting the England No. 1 join their bitter rivals to become the first player to tread that path in 21 years.

All Mourinho’s side have to do is stump up the asking price of £30m.

Despite Claudio Bravo’s woes under Pep Guardiola this season, Hart appears to have no way back under the Spaniard and even though he has enjoyed his time at Torino, the Serie A club cannot afford to sign him permanently.

City and Arsenal go head to head for Van Dijk

Manchester City and Arsenal are set to fight it out to land Southampton star Virgil Van Dijk, claims the Star.

The Dutch centre-back is out injured currently and will miss the remainder of the season, though the 25-year-old arguably already established himself as the Premier League’s most complete defender.

Guardiola has endured a nightmare in shuffling his defence this term, while Arsene Wenger has left Laurent Koscielny exposed for too long.

Saints are said to be reluctant to sell, yet bids of up to £50 could prove too much to knock back.

City handed Walker asking price

Manchester City have been told to fork out £50m if they want to sign Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker, reports the Sun.

Guardiola is desperate for talent in the full-back areas, especially pace and penetration to enable his swarming, high-press tactics to fully benefit.

Walker is seen as a key target this summer and has grown frustrated under Mauricio Pochettino after being dropped.

Despite recently extending his deal with Spurs, the England international has been alerted to his £60,000-per-week wages being below his market worth.

City will go up to £150,000-per-week to tempt Walker to push for a move to the Etihad, though convincing Spurs to sell remains the most difficult obstacle.

Tap-ins

– Chelsea remain determined to win the race for Monaco powerhouse Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to the Mail.

The Blues are confident of outmuscling Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Juventus — who have all shown interest in the French midfielder.

– Bournemouth and Crystal Palace will go head to head this summer for Queens Park Rangers talent Ryan Manning, reports the Mirror.

The 20-year-old is tied down at Loftus Road until 2019 but the Premier League clubs will look to test the Rs by submitting bids for the Ireland under-21 international.
