United keen on £40m defender, Cavani loving life at Old Trafford, Solskjaer told target will cost £78 million and Man United told target will be the best
Cavani loving life, Camavinga will be the best, Haaland price set and United keen on Konate in Manchester United roundup….
Reports have claimed that Manchester United are interested in signing Ibrihima Konate in the summer
Now it is no secret that Ole Gunnar Solskaer is keen to add to his squad in the coming transfer window and has been linked with the likes of Dayot Upamecano to help improve that back-line.
But after Bayern Munich confirmed that they would be signing Upamecano at the end of the season, it means that Solskjaer will have to turn his attentions elsewhere, and has reportedly set his sights on the impressive Konate
According to Bild, United are considering an approach for the 21-year-old, who has only just returned to action following an ankle problem, which kept him out from the middle of December to the start of February.
It is believed that a fee of £40 million would be enough to get a deal done, although Man Utd will have to beat off the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, who have also stepped up their interest in the lad.
Edinson Cavani has revealed he is loving life at Manchester United and is fully integrated into a squad he joined last year.
Cavani is a player that has scored goals at the very top of the game for many seasons now, but with his career coming towards the back-end, it was a massive shock to see him make that move to join United in the summer.
But he has already shown his value to United with some important goals and some impressive performances, and now he has come out and admitted that he is happy with life at Old Trafford: “I get to experience the club at closer quarters, and to share a dressing room with these players, these forwards and these young players,” Cavani told the club’s official website. “I love it and I’m excited by it.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken of the importance of Cavani’s experience in what is an otherwise inexperienced attack: “As someone who is a bit older, there are things that you notice that maybe they, as younger players don’t quite see yet,” Cavani said. “Just normal everyday football things. I’m here to give the best I can give of myself and to occasionally offer my opinion on things.
“I don’t really like to just give out advice. I prefer to support and be there to help. I like to give my best. If someone would like to take something on board as an example, something that I’ve done, then yes, by all means.”
Reports have claimed that Manchester United target Erling Haaland wants a basic wage of around £300,000-a-week in the summer
Over the past few seasons, Haaland has established himself as one of the most deadly strikers in world football and has been breaking all sorts of records in the Bundesliga, and the Champions League.
That has led to alot of reports on the media that the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid are all interested in trying to sign up the hitman in the summer transfer window, as they all seek to add a new striker to their squads.
Reports have suggested that Dortmund would not like to sell Haaland in the transfer window and are hoping to keep the talented young man, but they would be willing to let him leave if that £78 million asking price is met.
And The Daily Star claims he wants a five-year deal that would see him net a basic wage of £300,000 per week.
Look, if the reports are true and that is the amount of money that Dortmund want for a player that already has the ability to bang in over 30 goals a season, and has the ability to play for the next ten years, then a deal should get struck.
He really is a special talent that will play for one of the games biggest clubs, and it will be very interesting to see just what club he decides to join, as they all have the financial ability to pay his asking price and then pay him that high wage.
Long-term Manchester United target Eduardo Camavinga will be “the best midfielder in the world” according to his agent Jonathan Barnett.
Camavinga is a player that has been linked with all the biggest clubs over the past few seasons after developing very nicely at Rennes, where he has enjoyed another superb season with Julien Stephan’s side but is widely expected to be the subject of a move this summer.
The likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and even Tottenham have all been named as clubs that could swoop in and try to get a transfer deal done, although he would cost close to £50 million to acquire.
But amid all the speculation, his agent Jonathan Barnett has opened up and claimed that Camavinga has the potential to go on and become the best midfielder in world football: “At the moment, he’s a Rennes player,” Barnett exclusively told Goal. “He likes Rennes and, at the moment, we haven´t really taken to other clubs. It isn’t our position.
“Let’s see what happens later on, but he’s doing well in Rennes and that’s fine. Being the best midfielder in the world, that’s how I see his future, [with] a lot of medals and a lot of trophies.”
“Eduardo will have a choice of a lot of clubs if Rennes decides to release him. They will be one of the four of five clubs in the world he might go to.
“Eduardo would love to play for a top club. Madrid are one of those top clubs in the world, so are Barcelona.”
Asked if Camavinga would cost more than €50m, he added: “I would think so.”
United are one club that have a history of trying to sign young players and will be looking to try and get a deal done, but can they really compete with the big clubs for the lads signature?
