Gossip: Man Utd prioritise Leeds star, rival Liverpool for winger

by:

Man Utd reckon it’ll be easier to get Kalvin Phillips out of Leeds than it would be to sign their other midfield targets, while the Red Devils are also set to rival Liverpool for a winger…

 

UNITED TARGET LEEDS STAR
Manchester United belatedly appear to have noticed the gaping hole in their midfield and, apparently, they want Kalvin Phillips to fill it.

That’s the word according to the Manchester Evening News, at least. It seems the Red Devils are keen on Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham – who wouldn’t be? – but United reckon tempting Phillips across the Pennines from Leeds is a more realistic option.

They also see Phillips as a better screener for their defence and the fact he would probably cost less than his England team-mates is just a coincidence.

Not that the 26-year-old would come cheap. With Aston Villa ready to pay £60million for Phillips, United are willing to fend off them and West Ham.

WOLVES SAP £100M PRICE TAG ON NEVES
United have also been linked with Ruben Neves, something which hasn’t gone unnoticed at Wolves.

Liverpool and Barcelona also fancy the Portugal international and previous suitors have valued the 25-year-old at around £50million.

But the Daily Mail quotes Bruno Lage as saying he would expect double that to let Neves leave: “When you have a top player like him in that specific position, that can defend and attack, and is a top professional and a great man, the kind of teams are there with £100million to buy these kinds of players.”

 

RED DEVILS RIVAL LIVERPOOL FOR EX-BOURNEMOUTH WINGER
Liverpool and United might also be competing for Arnaut Danjuma…

The word on Thursday was that Liverpool have a plan to make an offer for the Villarreal star next year as they look towards replacing Sadio Mane.

But the Daily Mail reckons United are sniffing too and the Red Devils had their scouts watching Danjuma when he scored the winner for Villarreal against Bayern Munich in the Champions league on Wednesday.

 

VILLA TO GO BACK FOR BISSOUMA
With United’s interest in Phillips firming up, Villa may have to consider alternatives to the Leeds star, who was reportedly their primary target for the summer.

Football Insider says the Villans have been back in touch with Yves Bissouma. Steven Gerrard wanted the Brighton midfielder in January when he saw a £20million offer rejected by the Seagulls.

But Villa are likely to return for Bissouma at the end of the season, by which point he will be entering the final year of his contract at Brighton.

PSG OFFER MBAPPE SILLY MONEY
Guillem Balague has an update for you on Kylian Mbappe’s future…

You might have heard that Mbappé is considering new “circumstances”. Some translated that as his intention to stay at PSG

Those “circumstances”? €150m that PSG want to pay him for two seasons. He wants Real to pay him more, still his desired destination. No other club involved pic.twitter.com/QcWh49l7UU

Zoinks. That works out at £125million over two years which breaks down to £1.2million per week. Beat that, Florentino.
