Transfer News: Done Deals, Ronaldo, Balogun, Haaland, Neymar, Dembele, Varane.



Juve join the race for Dembele

Serie A heavyweights Juventus have joined the race for Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, claims Calciomercato.

The French forward is yet to extend a deal at Camp Nou that is due to expire in the summer of 2022 and has been linked with leading sides across Europe.

Man Utd target Varane bargain

Manchester United will pursue Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane but hope to negotiate down his price, writes the Daily Mail.

Varane has hinted that he could be ready to move on from Spain to a new challenge, and his defensive qualities would in theory enable him to walk into the Red Devils’ first team.

But United apparently want to drive down the asking price of £60 million (€69m/$83m), potentially complicating negotiations.

Neymar confirms he will sign new PSG deal (ESPN Brazil)

After advancing past Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday, Neymar told ESPN Brazil he would re-sign with Paris Saint-Germain.

“This (renewal with PSG) is no longer an issue,” Neymar said. “Obviously I feel very comfortable and at home here at PSG. I feel happier than I was before.”

PSG wanted Courtois over Navas

Paris Saint-Germain preferred Thibaut Courtois over Keylor Navas when shopping for goalkeepers in 2019, writes AS, but the French club can have no complaints about how things have worked out between the posts.

Navas helped PSG advance past Bayern Munich to the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday and has been a huge presence in Europe throughout the campaign.

Bayern confident in Haaland pursuit

Bayern Munich are confident they can land Erling Haaland as long as he stays at Borussia Dortmund until the summer of 2022, claims the Daily Mail.

The forward has a release clause that kicks in next year, which would make him a relatively affordable heir to Robert Lewandowski.

However, the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester City are keen on buying Haaland this year.

Arteta to be sacked if he doesn’t win the Europa Cup

Mikel Arteta has been warned he could face the sack if he does not win the Europa League with Arsenal this season.

Man Utd consider Pogba-Ronaldo swap deal

Manchester United are eager to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus – according to Calcio Mercato.

The Red Devils will consider an exchange deal that would see Paul Pogba return to Turin in order to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford this summer.

United are on course to receive a big payout for finishing in the Premier League’s top four again, and plan to put those funds towards the re-capture of a club legend.

Folarin Balogun signs new deal

According to Fabrizio Romano, Folarin Balogun has signed his new contract with Arsenal until June 2025, done and completed.

He received more than 15 proposals to sign as a free agent – Bayer Leverkusen made the biggest one. Edu Gaspar and Arteta convinced Balogun to stay and sign a new contract.
