Manchester United and Juventus have been discussing a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala.

However, Tottenham are also interested in the Argentina international.

With the Premier League transfer window to shut on August 8, there is still plenty of twists and turns to come.

 

TOP STORY – SPURS EYE DYBALA AMID UNITED TALKS

Tottenham have made an approach for Juventus star Paulo Dybala, according to SoccerLink.

Dybala is in talks with Manchester United, who have reportedly agreed a deal to send striker Romelu Lukaku to Juventus for the former Palermo forward.

The 25-year-old is reportedly not convinced about joining United and Champions League finalists Tottenham are ready to pounce after manager and fellow Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino tried to convince the player to move to London.

 

ROUND-UP

- The front page of SPORT is dominated by Neymar. The newspaper says Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are working on a loan deal with a non-mandatory purchase option to unlock negotiations. The new formula could accelerate a transfer.

- Manchester United star Paul Pogba fears being priced out of a move to Real Madrid, according to The Mirror. Madrid are in negotiations to sign Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek as they struggle to prise Pogba away from Old Trafford.

- The Express says Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is eyeing Real Madrid midfielder Isco and Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake. The Premier League champions are reportedly targeting Ake – who is believed to be wanted by Leicester City – as Manchester United close in on Harry Maguire.

- Napoli have entered the race to sign Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United, reports Alfredo Pedulla. However, Lukaku has apparently rejected the offer as he eyes a move to Juventus.

- According to O Jogo, Benfica are plotting a €6million transfer for Partizan Belgrade teenager Strahinja Pavlovic. The 18-year-old defender has been linked with Serie A champions Juventus.

- La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Ligue 1 duo Lyon and Monaco are keen on signing AC Milan attacker Suso.

- Barcelona are close to signing Real Betis full-back Junior Firpo, according to Marca. Mundo Deportivo says the two Spanish clubs have agreed a €25m fee for the 22-year-old.

The contract still needs signing but Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is poised to make the biggest move of his career… if you believe reports.

Linked with Europe's biggest clubs last season, Lazio star Milinkovic-Savic is once again in demand heading into 2019-20.

And the Serbia international's future is reportedly already decided.

 

TOP STORY – MILINKOVIC-SAVIC GIVES UNITED HIS WORD

Lazio midfielder Milinkovic-Savic has a verbal agreement to join Manchester United, according to the Daily Mail.

With Paul Pogba's future at Old Trafford uncertain amid links to Real Madrid, Milinkovic-Savic has emerged as a transfer target for the Red Devils.

And Serbia international Milinkovic-Savic – who is reportedly rated at £80million – has agreed in principal to make the switch to Manchester as the world waits on Pogba's next move.

ROUND-UP

- Staying at Old Trafford and Manchester United are closing in on Sporting CP captain Bruno Fernandes. SPORT claims United are readying a £63m (€70m) offer for the 24-year-old Portugal midfielder. It comes after the Red Devils tried to continue their Portuguese pursuit with a move for Benfica defender Ruben Dias as an alternative to Leicester City star Harry Maguire but the club were unsuccessful, according to O Jogo.

- According to RMC, Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal is not a done deal. Lille star Pepe has been tipped to join the Gunners, however, Liverpool and Inter are reportedly still in the running to sign the Ivory Coast international.

Juventus are in pole position to sign Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku ahead of Serie A rivals Inter. That is according to Tuttosport, who say the possibility of a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala has put Juve at the front of the queue. Dybala is also wanted by Tottenham.

- Marca reports Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is interested in a move to Juventus. The Spanish newspaper says Eriksen – who has no intention of re-signing with Spurs – also likes Manchester United and Atletico Madrid, having been previously linked to Real Madrid.

- Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye is set to undergo a medical with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain on Monday ahead of his €32m (£28.7m) transfer, reports the Guardian. Everton, meanwhile, reportedly had a £52m bid for Wilfried Zaha rejected by Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.

- According to Turkish newspaper Star, Besiktas will make another attempt to sign Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala. The Frenchman has struggled to make an impact since arriving in 2014.

- Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning are unwilling to pay the transfer fee that Real Madrid are demanding for Gareth Bale, according to Marca. Bale was reportedly set for China but that move appears off… for now.

Atletico Madrid are growing pessimistic in their pursuit of Real Madrid's James Rodriguez. Atletico have emerged as frontrunners for James ahead of Napoli, however, negotiations with Madrid are proving difficult, reports Marca.

Adel Taarabt's deflected effort against his former side saw Benfica edge AC Milan 1-0 to maintain their 100 per cent record in the International Champions Cup and move top of the table.

The entertaining contest in Massachusetts provided the Serie A side with a real test, but a combination of unimpressive finishing and fine goalkeeping from Odisseas Vlachodimos saw the Rossoneri fall short.

Milan looked excellent at times in the first half and crafted a host of opportunities, but they were unable to find a way past the supreme Vlachodimos, who produced a string of impressive saves.

Marco Giampaolo's men remained the more threatening side after the interval, in spite of Benfica's relative improvement, but a fortuitous Taarabt effort ultimately proved decisive.

The result leaves Milan bottom without a point after two games, while Benfica's ICC campaign comes to a close with a strong chance of them winning the competition, with only Manchester United still able to join them on a maximum nine points.

A dominant Milan first went close in the 16th minute, as Hakan Calhanoglu struck the post from distance and Suso wasted the follow-up chance.

Opportunities started to come thick and fast for Milan, but Vlachodimos put up stern resistance, saving from Samu Castillejo and Fabio Borini in a 10-minute spell.

Krzysztof Piatek then shot just wide from close range in the 43rd minute and Benfica nearly capitalised twice – Gabriel Pires testing Gianluigi Donnarumma from 25 yards, before the goalkeeper also thwarted Rafa at the end of a brilliant move.

Milan resumed their pressure early in the second half, but yet again Vlachodimos was unbeatable – the Greece international tipping over a Castillejo strike after the former Villarreal attacker dazzled the Benfica defence.

The Serie A giants were made to rue their profligacy when Benfica finally opened the scoring 20 minutes from time, Taarabt's 20-yard strike taking a huge deflection on its way past half-time substitute Pepe Reina.

Milan almost forced a penalty shoot-out, but Lucas Biglia's fine free-kick strike crashed against the crossbar and Benfica held on.

Caio's 93rd-minute winner lifted Benfica to a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina at the International Champions Cup on Wednesday.

Penalties were on the horizon amid a deadlock after Haris Seferovic's ninth-minute opener was cancelled out by Dusan Vlahovic prior to half-time in Harrison, New Jersey.

But substitute Caio ensured spot-kicks were not required courtesy of a thunderous half-volley with the last kick of the match at Red Bull Arena.

Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa was named on the bench again for Vincenzo Montella's men amid ongoing links with Serie A champions Juventus.

And Fiorentina started slowly as Seferovic put Benfica ahead in the ninth minute after some fine work from new signing Raul de Tomas.

Signed from Real Madrid following Joao Felix's big-money move to Atletico Madrid, De Tomas created some space on the edge of the area and slid in a ball to Seferovic, who stepped in front of his opponent and poked home past Pietro Terracciano.

De Tomas almost made it 2-0 in the 24th minute but the Spanish forward's volley forced Fiorentina goalkeeper Terracciano into a great finger-tip save.

Benfica looked the more likely to score, however, Fiorentina managed to equalise five minutes later thanks to Vlahovic.

After impressing against Guadalajara, the 19-year-old drifted onto his left foot and fired a low shot into the bottom corner of the net from the top of the penalty box.

An unbelievable chance went begging for Fiorentina – who introduced Chiesa at half-time – when Vlahovic hit the post and Marco Benassi somehow skied the ball over the crossbar with an empty net at his mercy in the 49th minute.

Benfica went close to restoring their lead nine minutes into the second half, but Rafa Silva's curling effort was just inches wide of the post.

The Portuguese champions did get their second goal as they won it at the death thanks to Caio, who found himself unmarked at the back post and fired a ferocious shot into the roof of the net.

Raul de Tomas, Rafa and Haris Seferovic were on target as Benfica cruised to a 3-0 International Champions Cup win over Chivas Guadalajara on Saturday.

The Portuguese champions wasted little time stamping their authority on the game, with De Tomas, their recent signing from Real Madrid, netting his first goal for the club after four minutes.

Chivas responded well to that early setback and twice hit the crossbar in the early stages of the second half, also striking the post in the closing stages.

Bruno Lage's side took full advantage of those reprieves, with Rafa and Seferovic producing clinical finishes in the final 20 minutes to earn an impressive win at the Levi's Stadium in California.

Benfica started in ominous mood and forged ahead inside just four minutes. Caio burst into Chivas' penalty area after a surging run and coolly picked out the unmarked De Tomas, who had the simple task of tapping in from three yards.

Chivas were a team reborn at the start of the second period, with Miguel Ponce and Alexis Vega crashing long-range efforts against the crossbar.

Raul Gudino produced a stunning reflex save to keep out Seferovic's thundering close-range header but there was little he could do about Benfica's second goal 20 minutes from time.

Jota threaded a precise pass into the path of fellow substitute Rafa, who showed wonderful composure to clip past the Chivas goalkeeper.

Seferovic was equally calm in front of goal three minutes later, latching onto Adel Taarabt's incisive pass and slotting past the onrushing Gudino to complete a routine victory.

There was more frustration for Chivas in stoppage time when they hit the woodwork for a third time, this time the post denying Ponce's free-kick.

Juventus goalkeeper Mattia Perin must wait for his move to Benfica after the Portuguese champions postponed the transfer following a medical on Thursday.

Perin, 26, was set for a €15million switch to Benfica after Gianluigi Buffon's return to Turin left the two-time Italy international behind the veteran goalkeeper and Wojciech Szczesny in the pecking order.

However, the shot-stopper only underwent shoulder surgery in April and a longer than expected recovery will see his move to Benfica delayed.

"Sport Lisboa e Benfica informs that in the medicals aftermath, held today, was concluded that the goalkeeper Mattia Perin has a higher than expected recovering process, of approximately four months," a statement from Benfica read.

"In this regard, there was an agreement between the clubs and the player's representatives so that the recovering period might take place at Juventus, completing the transfer process only after its conclusion."

Perin, who arrived at Juventus from Genoa last year, made nine appearances in 2018-19.

Mattia Perin insists there are no hard feelings over his impending Juventus exit as he closes in on a move to Benfica.

The goalkeeper, 26, is set to join the Portuguese champions subject to a medical – just a year after signing for Juve from Genoa.

Gianluigi Buffon's surprise return to the Italian champions a year on from his move to Paris Saint-Germain mean chances are likely to be limited at the Allianz Stadium for Perin, who was understudy to Wojciech Szczesny last season.

A fee of around €15million has reportedly been agreed between the sides, with promising Benfica full-back Joao Ferreira poised to head in the opposite direction to the Bianconeri, who are set to seal the capture of defender Matthijs de Ligt.

Perin says he is in no doubt over the move and has always hoped to be able to experience playing abroad.

"I'm happy, I'm going to Benfica to play for the champions," he said. "It's an exciting adventure. I want to show my value and put into practice everything I learned even during the last season at Juventus."

He added: "In Turin I found a group of exemplary players both outside and inside the field and I learned so much because they are all champions. For this I thank the company because it taught me a lot." 

Perin, who has been sidelined since shoulder surgery in April, also admitted he needs regular first-team football if he is to force his way back into the Italy squad ahead of Euro 2020.

"I'm recovering from the injury and I will return to the field between mid-September and early October," added Perin, who has been capped twice by his country at senior level. 

"I want to return to play with the aim of winning a jersey for next year's European Championship."

After Antoine Griezmann's long-awaited move to Barcelona, another transfer saga appears close to completion.

Leicester City and England centre-back Harry Maguire is reportedly poised for Manchester.

The red half will be happy…

 

TOP STORY – UNITED AGREE £80M DEAL FOR MAGUIRE

Manchester United have agreed to pay a world-record fee for a defender to sign Maguire from Leicester City, according to The Sun.

United will reportedly fork out £60million with an additional £20m available in add-ons, to see the England centre-back surpass Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk as the most expensive defender.

Premier League champions Manchester City were also linked to Maguire, however, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to get his man as he overhauls the Red Devils' defence following last season's sixth-place finish.

Hector Herrera is relishing the chance to call Joao Felix a team-mate at Atletico Madrid after the prodigiously talented teenager helped snatch silverware from his grasp last season.

Mexico midfielder Herrera signed a three-year deal at the Wanda Metropolitano earlier this month after six seasons with Porto in Portugal.

The 29-year-old was announced as a new addition on the same day as Joao Felix's arrival from Benfica for €126million.

The pair last crossed paths in March, when one of Joao Felix's 15 Primeira Liga goals helped Benfica to a crucial 2-1 victory at Estadio do Dragao.

Defeat proved costly for Porto as they finished two points adrift of the eventual champions, and the 19-year-old on the other team left a big impression on Herrera. 

"I really like how he plays," Herrera told AS when asked about Joao Felix, who netted 20 times in all competitions last term.

"What I noticed when I played against him was that he was extremely intelligent with his movement for someone so young. That's what I like about him. He's not the typical striker.

"And he has scored a lot of goals. He's a great player. I didn't want to wish him luck then, but I do now."

Atletico have been prolific in the transfer market in preparation for Antoine Griezmann's departure for Barcelona, which was confirmed on Friday.

Centre-back Felipe, also from Porto, and left-back Renan Lodi have been brought in as defensive reinforcements, while Diego Simeone lured midfielder Marcos Llorente away from city rivals Real Madrid.

Atleti returned to raid Benfica for young striker Ivan Saponjic on Thursday and have been linked to Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez.

The future of James Rodriguez has dominated headlines this off-season.

Napoli have been tipped to sign James after Bayern Munich opted not to take up their permanent option to sign the Real Madrid midfielder.

However, James could be set to remain in the Spanish capital.

 

TOP STORY – ATLETICO SET FOR SHOCK SWOOP

Atletico Madrid are close to completing the signing of James Rodriguez from LaLiga rivals Real Madrid, according to Marca.

Napoli have been favourites to lure James to Italy, with the Serie A side keen to reunite the Colombia star and head coach Carlo Ancelotti.

However, negotiations have dragged on and James – who spent the past two seasons on loan at Bayern Munich – is reportedly keen to make the switch across town.

 

ROUND-UP

- According to le10sport, Barcelona have offered Philippe Coutinho in a straight swap for Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar. LaLiga champions Barca reportedly do not have money to spend after paying Antoine Griezmann's release clause.

Juventus could use Moise Kean in a deal to sign Inter outcast Mauro Icardi, according to FCInterNews.it. Rai Sport has also claimed Juve could take Icardi on loan with an option to buy for €40million.

Paul Pogba's future at Manchester United seems to be getting messy and Juventus have no interest in being involved.

Linked with Real Madrid, Pogba, 26, wants to leave Old Trafford in the close season, according to his agent.

But United will demand plenty for the France international and his former club Juve are no longer in the race.

 

TOP STORY – MAN UNITED RAISE POGBA PRICE AS JUVE GIVE UP

Manchester United are now asking for €200.5million (£180m) for Pogba, according to the Mirror and The Sun.

The reports say the Premier League giants were angered by Pogba's agent Mino Raiola expressing his client's desire to leave.

Pogba arrived at United for £89m in 2016 and the club's latest asking price is more than double that.

But there will be no Turin return for Pogba, with the Daily Mail saying Juventus have ended their interest, opening the door for Real Madrid.

ROUND-UP

- One player set to head to the Serie A champions is Matthijs de Ligt. De Telegraaf report Juventus and Ajax have reached an agreement of €70m plus variables for the star centre-back.

- Barcelona seem to be making some progress in their pursuit of Neymar. According to Bild, Barca will offer up a list of four players to Paris Saint-Germain, who would agree to sign three and accept a fee in the region of €130m. Reports suggest the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Samuel Umtiti and Nelson Semedo are expendable at Camp Nou.

- Inter's chase of Romelu Lukaku has appeared difficult and there are few signs of that changing any time soon. Manchester United want more than €83.5m (£75m) – what they paid for the striker in 2017 – for the Belgium international, according to BBC Sport, leading to suggestions Lukaku is set to stay at Old Trafford.

- Manchester United reportedly want Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes, but A Bola report the Premier League giants first want to sign a centre-back, having been linked with the likes of Leicester City defender Harry Maguire. The Sun say United are also targeting Benfica and Portugal centre-back Ruben Dias.

- Hakim Ziyech impressed for Ajax last season, but not quite enough to earn a move to Arsenal. According to BBC Sport, the Premier League club have ended their interest in the attacker.

- West Ham are searching for a replacement for Marko Arnautovic after the forward's move to China. The Guardian say West Ham have held talks with Eintracht Frankfurt over Sebastien Haller, who is valued at around £40m (€44.6m) and is also a reported target for Manchester United.

Joao Felix is so talented he could treble his value to €378million within a year, according to his new Atletico Madrid team-mate Felipe.

Despite being only 19, Joao Felix moved to Atletico earlier this month for €126m from Benfica, with the Spanish club paying €6m more than the teenager's release clause in order to stagger the payments.

The attacking midfielder scored 20 goals across all competitions last term and attracted the interest of a host of Europe's biggest clubs, including Juventus, Manchester City and Manchester United.

But Atletico charged ahead with the deal in anticipation of Antoine Griezmann's likely move to Barcelona, giving Joao Felix the Frenchman's No.7 jersey despite him still technically being at the club.

Many have criticised the deal, adamant Atletico are putting too much faith in the youngster, but Felipe – a rival of Joao Felix's at Porto last term before also moving to the Wanda Metropolitano – is convinced the Portugal international will shine immediately.

"He's a great player," Felipe, 30, told Marca. "In Portugal he was very advanced for his age.

"He's very intelligent, fast, his movement is very good and he is now on my team. I will be able to help [him settle and adapt].

"In Portugal he was my rival and I had to fight against him. It was difficult because he has a lot of quality. He's a kid that still has a lot to grow and he will give much joy to the Atletico fans.

"We have to be calm, but Joao Felix will probably double or treble his value in a year's time."

Joao Felix has discussed life in Spain with Cristiano Ronaldo but insists he joined Atletico Madrid to "do my own story".

The 19-year-old has joined Atleti in a €126million move from Benfica, taking on the departing Antoine Griezmann's number seven shirt at the Wanda Metropolitano.

It is a number often associated with Ronaldo, with the Juventus star winning four Champions League crowns across the city at Real Madrid.

But Joao Felix, while seeking the advice of Portugal international team-mate Ronaldo, is keen to avoid comparisons with the LaLiga great and forge his own legacy.

"Cristiano is the best in the world," he told a news conference at his Atletico presentation. "When we were in the Portugal squad, he always talked a lot about Madrid and said he liked it a lot.

"But I'm here to do my own story and to be remembered as Joao Felix. They are good comparisons, but Cristiano is Cristiano and I want to be myself."

Joao Felix added: "I'm here to make history with Atletico Madrid. I'll do my best."

He became Atleti's record signing and topped Ronaldo as the most expensive Portuguese player of all time, yet the front man is not concerned by the price tag.

"This is a matter of the market, I do not understand any of this," he said. "I just play and do my job to help the club where I am.

"I've said that I care little or nothing about values. I just do my job."

 

Atletico Madrid's €126million teenage forward Joao Felix insists he has what it takes to emulate the club's Portuguese greats as he prepares for his first season in LaLiga.

The 19-year-old followed in the footsteps of former Portugal internationals Paulo Futre, Simao and Tiago when he opted to join the club from Benfica, and he has set his sights on surpassing their achievements in the Spanish capital.

In an interview with the club's official website, he also spoke about the importance of head coach Diego Simeone's ability to motivate his players and dismissed suggestions that his relative inexperience would hold him back.

"Simeone is a coach that transfers aggressiveness and motivation into the team, which he also did as a player," said Joao Felix, who scored 20 goals in all competitions last season. "That helps us a lot. He proves his talent and helps us on the pitch.

"Several Portuguese players have played here; big players that were important for Portuguese football. I want to do as well or even better than them.

"I hope to do as well as possible, think positively, work hard in order to complete a great season and be a star at Atletico Madrid.

"Age influences some things but I'm mature enough to face this situation. I know what it means to be at an important club, and everybody says that even though I'm 19 it doesn't look like it."

Joao Felix, who will wear the number seven jersey that formerly belonged to Antoine Griezmann, revealed he has followed Atletico's fortunes in recent years and reflected on the club's LaLiga victory in 2013-14, as well as their Europa League triumph in 2017-18.

He also mentioned Atletico's Champions League final defeats in 2013-14 and 2015-16 as he looked forward to pulling on the shirt of a club he described as one of the world's best.

"I'm very happy," he said. "Everybody wants to play in the world's best teams and Atletico are one of them. Several clubs were interested but I chose Atletico.

"They are the one that I liked the most and the one which had the best conditions for me to go. Atletico are one of the best teams in the world.

"Every player wants to play for the world's top clubs. The opportunity came up and I'm here to give my all. They are a team that I've followed a lot in the Spanish league.

"I even saw them win the league and the Europa League. I also watched the two finals that they didn't win. I've always followed the Spanish league, including Atleti."

Manchester United are desperate to sign Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.

Maguire, 26, has reportedly told Leicester he wants to leave, with both Manchester clubs linked with a move for the centre-back.

But it seems Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to bring the England international to Old Trafford.

 

TOP STORY – MAN UNITED STARS GIVE MAGUIRE THUMBS-UP

Maguire is Manchester United's number one defensive target, according to the Mirror.

The report says Solskjaer received positive feedback from the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Ashley Young, the United trio having played with Maguire for England.

The Mirror also say United assistant manager Mike Phelan is desperate for the club to sign Maguire, who he worked with briefly as Hull City manager in 2016-17.

It was reported earlier this week that United had made a £70million bid for Maguire.
