GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS
SunSport can exclusively reveal Alisher Usmanov is the driving force behind the move to make Rafa Benitez Everton’s new boss.
He was instrumental in the appointment of Sam Allardyce and Moshiri sought his advice before bringing in Marco Silva as Big Sam’s replacement.
And despite a large number of fans unhappy with the thought of former Liverpool boss Benitez in charge, Moshiri is intent on making the Spaniard the fifth manager since he took over five years ago.
Meanwhile, SunSport understands Man United are closing in on an £80million deal to buy Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
The Old Trafford club made a £72m bid yesterday but they are prepared to go to £80m to get their man.
Personal terms based on a five-year deal worth £350,000-a-week have already been agreed.
United also spoke to Erling Haaland before the Euros, but the Dortmund striker has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid.
Elsewhere, Chelsea transfer target Niklas Sule could extend his Bayern Munich contract, according to reports.
The defender is set to become a free agent in 2022.
But he is now in talks with Bayern over an extension, dealing a blow to Chelsea’s hopes this summer.
The Blues could also miss out on Achraf Hakimi, with the Inter Milan star reportedly agreeing personal terms with Inter Milan.
Finally, Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui has rejected a ‘dizzying’ offer from Tottenham.
Club president Jose Castro told Cadena Ser: “Julen rang me and told me.
“He said he’d received offers he’d not listened to in addition to a dizzying one from Tottenham.
“But he said he doesn’t forget things and that he is very motivated here.”
