GOOD MORNING RED DEVIL FANS
United have reportedly agreed a deal in principle to sign Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.
The 28-year-old centre-back has been negotiating a deal with the Premier League giants in what would be one of the biggest signings of the summer.
According to Telefoot, all that is left is for Real and United to agree a transfer fee for the French defender.
Man Utd are said to be offering a fee in the region of £43million but Madrid are holding out for a sum in excess of £50m.
Meanwhile, Donny van de Beek wants to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place, according to reports.
The 24-year-old has struggled since joining the club in August 2020, making just 19 Premier League appearances.
According to the Manchester Evening News, van de Beek will snub interest from Spain, Italy and Germany to keep his United dream alive.
The Holland international has been linked with a move abroad this summer after a difficult first season in England.
Most of van de Beek’s United appearances to date have been off the bench as he’s failed to nail down a place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Roma and Juventus have all been linked with the midfielder in recent months.
And finally, Andreas Pereira has revealed his desire to return to Lazio after enjoying a loan spell in Rome last season.
He told GianlucaDiMarzio.com: “I’d like to go back to the Biancoceleste [Lazio] if I was given more time. Rome could be my definitive home, I had a great time.
“I love the style of play and the team spirit that exists in Serie A. Lazio have priority in my heart. But your country has won me over, why not come back one day if the opportunity arises?”
