Juves-Dybala-linked-with-swap-for-Barcas-DembeleAfter agreeing to a new long-term agreement with Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United is set to initiate contract discussions with Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw, according to ESPN’s Rob Dawson.

Rashford and Shaw are part of a core group of players that United want to maintain at Old Trafford, and they are eager to go on with talks despite the club’s next permanent manager’s name still being a mystery.

Fernandes has informally agreed to terms on a new five-year deal, which will be announced after the international break.

The new contract, according to Old Trafford sources, is intended to bring the midfielder up to par with the club’s greatest earners and represent his performance since joining from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, rather than as a reward for a season in which the 27-year-old has struggled.

Last season, Fernandes scored 28 goals in all competitions, but he has only managed nine so far this season.

12.32 a.m. GMT: Wayne Rooney, a Manchester United great, has said that every step he takes in management is designed to assist him reach his goal of one day being the club’s manager.

In January, the 36-year-old said that he turned down an interview for the manager’s post at Everton, his childhood club, in order to focus on saving Championship side Derby County from relegation.

Rooney is United’s all-time leading scorer, with 253 goals in a 13-year career that saw him win 16 major trophies, including five Premier League crowns, the Champions League, the Europa League, and the FA Cup.

Should Man United re-sign Bruno Fernandes? 12.00 GMT: Should Man United re-sign Bruno Fernandes?



Gabriel Marcotti is baffled as to why Manchester United would wish to keep Bruno Fernandes on the books until 2027.

10.54 GMT: Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio might be on his way out this summer, according to Defensa Central, with Juventus interested.

Asensio, 26, has scored 10 goals in 33 appearances this season, but he is seen as a player who might be sold for a large transfer price to make room for new signings.

Juventus has been keeping tabs on Asensio for years, but with his contract set to expire in 2023, it may be time for him to go elsewhere.

10.10 GMT: Barcelona president Joan Laporta has said that no allowances would be made in terms of salary for possible new arrivals.

According to LaLiga, the Catalan club has a negative €144 million expenditure cap and is continuing to slash costs.

Barca will still make “four or five reinforcements” during the summer transfer window, according to Laporta.

“We’re working on the financial problem and trying to get additional resources so we can have the salary margin we need,” Laporta told Mundo Deportivo. “At the same time, we’re working on incorporating four or five reinforcements from the sports management side that we believe the club needs to become more competitive.”

09.35 GMT: According to Mundo Deportivo, Tottenham Hotspur are leading the battle to capture Barcelona attacker Memphis Depay.

Depay, who has ten goals for Barca this season, has a contract with the club until June 2023. Barca have yet to make a decision on a new deal for Depay, who is being watched by Premier League teams.

The former PSV Eindhoven, Manchester United, and Lyon star is pleased at Barca and wants to remain, but the Catalan club would be open to a sale for a price in the area of €45 million as they want to reduce their wage bill and bring in fresh income in order to strengthen their team this summer.

08.43 GMT: According to AS, Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic is seeking for a new club this summer in order to get more playing time.

The Serbian attacker, who has a contract with Real Madrid until June 2025, has only played 473 minutes in 17 games for the club in all competitions.

With Los Blancos poised to sign Kylian Mbappe as a free agency this summer and also chasing Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, Jovic knows his playing time will be even more restricted next season if he chooses to stay.

Jovic joined Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer of 2019 for €60 million. In January 2021, the 24-year-old returned to Frankfurt on a six-month loan from Real Madrid, but he now wants to leave Madrid permanently.

8 a.m. GMT: Paul Pogba of Manchester United has expressed his dissatisfaction with the club’s lack of trophies in recent years, stating that he wants to “play for something” in the future.

The France international re-signed for United in 2016 and won two trophies in his debut season with the club — the League Cup and the Europa League — but United has not won any trophies since. After being knocked out of the FA Cup and the Champions League, their trophy drought will stretch to five years this season, their worst streak in 40 years.

Pogba has struggled to make an impression at Old Trafford, but he has admitted that the lack of success has been tough for him when on international duty with France.

Pogba told Telefoot, “The truth needs to be stated — there have been tough periods, particularly when I was at Manchester.” “Coming here [to the French squad] gives me a lift when I haven’t played or when the results haven’t been there.”

“It’s tough since a lot has transpired, from my injury to the change in management.” It’s neutral since we’re no longer competing for a championship.

“I want to win championships and compete for a cause. We haven’t won anything in the last several years, or even the prior ones. In the end, that’s what’s tragic.”

Pogba responded to a question concerning his future by saying: “Nothing has been decided about my future, and nothing has been done. I have the option to make a decision tomorrow, just like I did during the transfer window. I want to get back on track and have a strong finish to the season.”

GOSSIP ON PAPER (by Adam Brown)

– According to the Mirror, Everton are contemplating selling Dele Alli this summer. The Toffees have yet to give him a start this season, with the midfielder making six appearances off the bench for Frank Lampard’s team. After just signing in January, it seems that the club has already run out of patience with the former Tottenham Hotspur player.

– According to Ekrem Konur, Dominic Calvert-Lewin might leave Everton this summer, with the club willing to listen to bids. After a strong 2020-21 season, the 25-year-old striker has struggled to replicate his success under Lampard, scoring only three Premier League goals in ten games. Arsenal has been connected with him in the past.

– Only the final terms of Marquinhos’ new contract must be confirmed by Paris Saint-Germain, according to Fabrizio Romano. The 27-year-old centre-back is in talks with the Parc des Princes about a possible five-year contract that would keep him at the club until 2027. The Brazil international joined PSG in 2013 and has been a crucial member of Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI this season, appearing 32 times for the club.

– According to the Express, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United are keeping an eye on Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo. Since the beginning of the year, the 23-year-old centre-back has been unable to agree to fresh terms at Camp Nou, prompting interest from around Europe. Barca is expected to have talks with him next week to determine if he would stay at the club, with the three Premier League clubs waiting patiently to make their move.

– According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are hoping to add three Italy internationals to their team this summer. The Bianconeri are interested in signing AS Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo, 22, and Chelsea’s Jorginho, 30, as midfield reinforcements, with Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi also a possibility. Massimiliano Allegri is hoping to complete his reconstruction with the three of Italy players as Juventus looks to reclaim the Serie A championship after falling seven points behind leaders AC Milan with eight games remaining.
