Latest on Jadon Sancho, Griezmann, Felix and Dzeko
Will Jadon Sancho Stay or Go?
Manchester United are reportedly set to miss out on target Jadon Sancho. The Metro are reporting that the 19-year-old is set to snub a move and stay with Borussia Dortmund. The England international has been high on United’s wanted list; however, it appears they will have to turn their attention elsewhere.
Sancho has been a key player for Dortmund this season. He has scored 12 goals and contributed 19 assists. With several top clubs chasing his signature, it appears that the winger will stay loyal to Dortmund for at least another year.
Barcelona Hoping to Sign Top Target
After the disappointment of their Champions League exit, Barcelona are set to spend big this summer. One player who they appear determined to sign is Antoine Griezmann. Fox Sports are reporting that the Spanish Champions are set to try once again to sign the French international striker.
Reports suggest that Griezmann will be available for €120 million this summer. This will come into effect from July 1st when his release clause reduces from €200 million. The Atletico Madrid striker has been chased by Barcelona for some time, and with the player reportedly keen on a move, the Catalan giants may finally get their man.
Benfica Attempt to Keep Felix
Manchester United could be about to miss out on another transfer target. Benfica’s Joao Felix is reportedly a target; however, the Portugal Primeira Liga leaders are determined to keep him. Manchester Evening News are reporting that United and other interested parties are set to miss out on the exciting youngster.
Benfica are set to offer the 19-year-old a new £2.1 million-a-year contract. They are hoping that this and his current £103 million release clause will be enough to keep Felix in Portugal. The winger has scored 18 times this season and made 11 assists.
Dzeko to Swap Rome for Paris?
The Sun are reporting that veteran striker Edin Dzeko could be heading to Paris Saint-Germain. The 33-year-old former Manchester City star is entering into the final year of his Roma contract. PSG are therefore set to test Roma and Dzeko with an offer.
The Ligue 1 Champions are looking for reinforcements after another disappointing Champions League campaign. With the future of Neymar uncertain, attacking options are being discussed. Dzeko, who had scored 13 times this season, five in the Champions League is on PSG’s list. His experience and ability to lead the line and play with another striker appeals.
