While the Premier League remains in talks over Project Restart with the aim of resuming the 2019-20 season amid the coronavirus pandemic, speculation around potential transfer for the 2020-21 season remains in full swing.
We’ll keep you abreast of all the news from our correspondents, and the talking points and rumours from the rest of Europe.
Speaking of Manchester United, former Red Devils stalwart Gary Neville has been speaking about the kind of player he would like to see arrive at the club in future.
“Not a name but I like the 20-25 year olds,” he said during a Twitter Q&A. “The ones that have that next level in them type of signing.”
Asked if United’s financial advantage over their rivals in a post-coronavirus transfer market could lead to the arrival of “mercenaries” at Old Trafford, Neville replied: “The transfer policy has changed in the last 2 seasons so I would hope not.”
Juventus striker Paulo Dybala is hoping to link-up with Manchester United’s Paul Pogba again in future.
The duo spent one year together in Turin between 2015-16, winning the Serie A title and the Coppa Italia before Pogba’s high-profile return to Old Trafford.
The French midfielder could move between United and Juve once again during the next transfer window, according to some reports – a switch that Dybala would evidently relish.
“I admire [Pogba] as a person even more than as a football player,” he said.
“I had the chance to share great things with him and hopefully I can repeat that someday.”
Umtiti suffers injury
Barcelona have confirmed Samuel Umtiti has suffered a calf inju
The severity of the problem is unclear at this stage, but Barca reportedly hope to use the 26-year-old in part-exchange for Lautaro Martinez.
Barcelona have offered Inter Milan a choice of six players in return for Martinez, with Umtiti among them.
A club statement confirmed: “Samuel Umtiti has a right calf injury. His progress will determine his availability for the coming workouts.”
Pogba has been plagued by injuries this term and widely-linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid.
But the coronavirus pandemic could put the breaks on a transfer for Pogba, with United unlikely to do business below their asking price.
Asked on Twitter about the possibility of Paul Pogba getting his head down and remaining at Old Trafford, Neville responded: “They could be amazing together if they compromise and work to help each other.”
The 16-year-old has shone at Lyon this season, but the decision to void the campaign reportedly means his release clause can be triggered because they will miss out on a Champions League spot next season.
Mason Greenwood is ranked third as the top name from the Premier League, with no less than three Arsenal players in the top 10.
Just outside the top 10 are Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour and Manchester United target Jude Bellingham, while United have two further representatives in the top 50, in Hannibal Mejbri and James Garner.
