Here is the daily roundup of Liverpool and Manchester United news gossip and transfer talk from icfootballnews
Reports have claimed Manchester United are willing to spend £80 million to try and secure a summer transfer deal for Liverpool transfer target Jadon Sancho.
Sancho is now considered one of the most exciting and gifted talents in world football after taking the Bundesliga by storm, and Borussia Dortmund were so confident he was the future of the club that they allowed star man Christian Pulisic to agree a £57 million move to Chelsea during the January transfer window.
His performances has not only led to him being involved in 22 goals in 24 games this season, but he has also earned an International call-up by England boss Gareth Southgate, who also believes that the winger can become one of the very best in world football.
But according to reports on the Daily Express website website, United are looking to freshen up the side in the summer transfer window and add a bit more creativity and width to the side, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hoping to build a side that is capable of winning the Premier League, with Sancho on the shopping list.
The reports suggest that United are willing to back Solskjaer in the transfer market and are ready to fend off Liverpool and PSG to secure a deal for Sancho, with a £80 million seemingly the price set by the German giants.
Liverpool and Arsenal are set to suffer a blow in their chase for Marcus Rashford, as he is all set to sign a new deal with Manchester United.
Rashford has endured a difficult season this year for United, having fallen out of favour with former United boss Jose Mourinho, who claimed that the Englishman didnt have the ability to score goals on a regular basis.
His frsutrations on the pitch and with Mourinho led to speculation that the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool could swoop in and offer him a way out of Old Trafford with an offer in excess of £100 million, with reports suggesting both clubs are extremely interested in a potential deal.
However, the England international has played a starring role since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge, and the Daily Express website has claimed he is now set to sign a big United deal that will double his current salary to around £150,000-a-week.
United hope the offer of a new deal with stave off interest from the continenet, with the Englishman in his final 18-months of his current deal.
Reports have claimed Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is looking to offload Manchester United and Arsenal target Gareth Bale in the summer transfer window.
After getting knocked out the Champions league in such spectacular fashion by Dutch giants Ajax, Madrid finally made the decision to get rid of Santiago Scolari after he failed to help get the side back into the habit of winning games and replace him with former boss Zidane.
Zidane left the Bernabeu at the end of last season after guiding the Spaniards to a third successive Champions League title, but made a sensational return to the club and will now look to offload a number of players that have failed to produce the goods this season.
And according to Spanish Publication AS, Zidane is keen to sell Welshman Bale as the winger has failed to hit the heights that many expected after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo when he left for Juventus in the summer transfer window.
However, both Arsenal and United will have a hard time trying to complete a transfer deal as Bale is the highest paid player at the Spaniards and any club will have to fork out over £500,000-a-week and over £150 million to sign Bale.
