Football Transfer News: Latest on Pogba, Shelvey, Coutinho & Willian

Paul Pogba looks to be heading back to Italy. Juventus want to re-sign the 25-year-old midfielder from Manchester United in the summer.

The asking price for Pogba would be in the region of £72 million. United are considering a swap deal where Juventus winger Douglas Costa would come over to the Premier League club.

The deal would take place in the summer, furthermore United are reportedly considering the move.

Will Shelvey Move to the Capital?

Jonjo Shelvey may be on the move away from the North East and down to the capital. West Ham are considering making an offer to Newcastle United for the 26-year-old midfielder.

Shelvey has only made 12 appearances for the Magpies this season,  also the midfielder recently travelled to Spain for treatment on a thigh injury.

According to the Daily Mail Manuel Pellegrini is keen to bring the midfielder to the London Stadium this window.

The Hammers almost certainly will face opposition from Newcastle United with Rafa Benitez unwilling to sell Shelvey without sourcing a replacement.

Coutinho to Leave Spain?

Philippe Coutinho could be on his way back to the Premier League in the summer. Manchester United have expressed an interest in signing the former Liverpool midfielder.

Coutinho has only made nine starts with Barcelona this season, slipping down the pecking order.

United would have to splash the cash, however, as the Spanish side are unlikely to accept offers under £142 million.

Above all, Barcelona will only sell if they can secure a replacement.

Willian to Leave Chelsea?

Chelsea have already declined an offer from Barcelona for winger Willian. The Spanish club are set to increase the offer to around £50 million.

The Spanish La Liga club would include Malcom moving to Chelsea. The Blues do not want to lose Willian.

The 30-year-old only has 18 months on contract left with Chelsea. Willian has started 30 of the 32 matches Chelsea have played, therefore Willian is Chelsea’s most prolific starting player.
