Toneli contact made, shock Perisic talks, Pogba transfer message in Liverpool, Man United Saturday news and gossip
Here is the daily roundup of Liverpool and Manchester United news and gossip
Paul Pogba’s Brother has claimed the Manchester United star will move to Real Madrid or Barcelona when he leaves Old Trafford.
Pogba has finally started to find his feet at United after struggling under the guidance of Jose Mourinho, as he has been instrumental in helping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer win his opening eight games as boss of the Red Devils.
However, there has still been alot of speculation in the media which has claimed that the likes of PSG and Juventus are ready to offer him a move away from Old Trafford in the summer, with both reportedly ready t pay around £100 million to try and secure a deal.
But in an interview with Spanish publication AS, Florentin said that Pogba will only move to a claub that will imprive him, with City, Barcelona and Madrid all mentioned.
He was quoted on the Sky Sports website: “When my brother leaves Manchester United, there are only three clubs he can go to to improve: (Manchester) City, Real Madrid or Barca. He’s not going to go to City, so he’ll come to Spain: to Barca or Madrid.
“When he was at Juventus, he could have gone to Barcelona, but he was determined to return to Manchester United, where it hadn’t worked out for him first time round.”
There has been some reports which have claimed Arsenal are in talks to sign winger Manchester United target Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.
Perisic had a terrific world cup with Croatia and helped hi national side reach an unlikely world cup final, and his performances caught the attentions of former United boss Jose Mourinho, who was keen to add a few more players to his squad.
But a move never materialised and in the end Perisic stayed put, and with United getting rid of Mourinho, the Red Devils interest in completing a £25 million deal has gone, meaning the Gunners now have a free run at trying to secure a move.
Reports on the Sky Sports website has claimed the Gunners want to sign the 29-year-old on loan with an option to buy, as Unai Emery seeks to bolster his attack with Danny Welbeck out for the season, and Aaron Ramsey seemingly losing interest after agreeing a move to Juventus.
Perisic has scored three goals and registered five assists in 25 appearances in all competitions this season for Inter, but the Italians will only do a January deal if Arsenal can make the move a permanent one rather than a loan deal.
Brescia owner Massimo Cellino Liverpool have enquired about 18-year-old midfielder Sandro Tonali.
Liverpool, who are now favourites to win the Premier League this season, have been eyeing up a number of possible transfer deals this month to come in and add a bit more strength in depth to the side, as there ius plenty more games to go before the end of the season.
And the latest player tobe linked with a move to Anfield is young Toneli, who is regarded as one of Italy’s finest talents and has already established himself as a regular starter for Serie B side Brescia.
Many reports in Italy have even suggested that he could be the next Andrea Pirlo, who is regarded as one of the finest players to ever grace the game, with his contolling of games and brilliance on the ball second to none.
Now Cellino claims a host of clubs are trying to lure Tonali away from Brescia, and that Liverpool are one of those sides
He told Il Corriere dello Sport: ‘Roma have made a request for Tonali, I’ve had many meetings with (Roma chief Mauro) Baldissoni but I want to retain the player for long time.
‘As much time as possible. He’s just 18 and and I’ve been contacted by Liverpool too.’
