Kasper Dolberg wanted

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Ajax talent Kasper Dolberg.

That’s according to Italian website Calciomercato, who claim the Red Devils will challenge Arsenal and Napoli for his signature.

The report claims Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli are preparing a ‘huge bid’ to bring the Dutch international to the San Paolo Stadium.

But the Serie A challengers will have to fend off interest from their Premier League rivals.

Dolberg, 25, has bagged 10 goals and provided four assists in 27 appearances for Ajax this season.

Man Utd top target revealed

Manchester United have made Milan Skriniar their top target this summer.

The Independent claim the Inter Milan centre-back tops the Red Devils’ wishlist, with Ed Woodward ready to spend.

Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly and Sampdoria's Joachim Andersen are also targets for United, however, Skriniar is the No 1 choice.

The Independent add that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already voiced his opinion to the United board over potential singings.

Ivan Rakitic to Inter Milan

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic could be leaving the club at the end of the season, reports claim.

Rakitic’s contract is set to expire in June 2021 - by which time the Croatia international will have turned 32.

Spanish newspaper Sport claim Rakitic’s entourage have pestered Barcelona for a meeting to discuss an extension.

However, Barcelona chiefs have reportedly refused to discuss the situation and say a new contract for Rakitic is not part of their plans.

La Gazzetta dello Sport believe the midfielder will be joining Inter Milan over the summer in a deal worth £35million.

Arsenal tried to sign Banega in January, however, a deal wasn’t agreed.

The Gunners will have to cough up around £17m for Banega this summer.

Barcelona raid

Barcelona are close to completing a £17million double deal for Palmeiras starlets Vitao and Luan Candido.

That’s according to Goal, who claim negotiations with the players’ representatives have reached an advanced stage.

Vitao, who captains the Brazil Under-20 team, is a versatile centre-half who can also operate as a defensive midfielder.

The 19-year-old has already flown to Europe with his agent to ‘complete the formalities’ of an exciting move to the Nou Camp.

Candido, meanwhile, is a talented 18-year-old left-back and will likely join Vitao in Barcelona's B team or be loaned out to gain experience.

Chelsea swap deal

Real Madrid could use winger Gareth Bale as part of an audacious swap deal to sign Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

That’s according to Spanish newspaper Marca, who claim Bale has exhausted his ‘extra life’ at the Bernabeu.

Bale, 29, has started just two of Real Madrid’s last seven games under manager Santiago Solari since his return from injury.

The Welshman has found it difficult to displace teenage prodigy Vinicius Junior and could be used to finance summer signings, Marca add.

It’s said Real Madrid would like to ‘take advantage’ of Chelsea’s interest in Bale and use him in future negotiations to sign Hazard.
