Transfer news UPDATES: Barcelona to agree Neymar swap, Man Utd's Pogba plan

Marcos Rojo off?

Manchester United could loan Marcos Rojo out to Turkey, according to reports.

The Argentine defender made just five appearances in the Premier League last season and is not in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans.

He was linked with Everton in the summer after United signed Harry Maguire.

But Turkish newspaper Posta say Fenerbahce are interested in a loan deal after missing out on Roma's Aleksandar Kolarov.

Dejan Lovren twist

Dejan Lovren's potential move to Roma could fall apart, with the Italian side only after a loan move for the defender according to new reports.

Although World Cup runner-up Lovren had been expected to join Roma in a £15million deal, the move may now be off with Liverpool not keen on letting the defender go on loan, according to Football Insider.

The Serie A side are said to be pursuing a loan with an option to buy ahead of the end of the Italian transfer window on September 2nd.

However, Liverpool will reportedly only consider letting Lovren leave Anfield on a permanent basis.

This could end Roma’s interest in the 30-year-old, with the club adamant they do not have the money Liverpool are demanding for the player.

Despite this, Roma remain in talks with the Champions League winners and hope to be able to reach a compromise.

Lovren was omitted from Liverpool’s UEFA Super Cup final squad, with talks between the two clubs ongoing, although Reds boss Jurgen Klopp denied it had anything to do with the transfer speculation.

PSG to pressure Neymar to join Barcelona over Real Madrid

Neymar will be reportedly pressured into joining Real Madrid over Barcelona by PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi should the club receive a bid in the region of £200million from Los Blancos.

Neymar wants out of PSG and Real Madrid and Barcelona are both currently fighting it out to secure the player’s signature.

The Brazil international feels the time is right to leave the Parc des Princes, two years after he moved in a £200m deal.

Barcelona are currently frontrunners in the race to land Neymar, with the player himself hellbent on returning to the club where he enjoyed four positive years between 2013 and 2017.

But Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo say Neymar will be pressured into going to Madrid by PSG chief Al-Khelaifi should they be offered their money back.

Roma only interested in Alexis Sanchez on one condition

Manchester United are looking to force Alexis Sanchez out of the club according to reports, and Roma could be willing to take him off their hands.

The Chilean’s move to Old Trafford has been nothing short a disappointment since he arrived in January 2018, now he could finally be set for an exit which has been brewing since last summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to get Sanchez’s £505,000-a-week wages off the books, so the club can embark on a new structure.

It’s believed that the figure is being used as a benchmark by players during contract negotiations and by transfer targets looking to move to the club.

According to The Sun, Roma want to sign him on loan but only if Manchester United are willing to share out his wages.

A source at the Italian club also confirmed to RomaPress that they have been offered the chance to sign Alexis and are also willing to pay a large portion of his salary.

Bayern Munich interested in Philippe Coutinho

Bayern Munich are interested in signing Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona on loan.

That would only happen though if the Brazilian was not included in any swap deal with Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar.

Sky in Germany say the Bundesliga club are closely monitoring the situation and could move for Coutinho.

Barcelona have previously placed an £80million price tag on the former Liverpool midfielder.

Manchester United have a Paul Pogba plan

Manchester United reject any and all bids for Paul Pogba before September 2.

The World Cup winner has been constantly linked with a Real Madrid switch this summer but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to keep him at Old Trafford.

After the 4-0 win over Chelsea at the weekend, Pogba again spoke about his future.

“Obviously there have been things said but only time will tell,” he said.

“However, as I said, I am here in Manchester.

“I enjoy playing with my team-mates and I always want to win every game. I always give it everything.”
