GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS
SunSport can exclusively reveal Man Utd are lining up German star Leon Goretzka amid mounting fears they will be forced to sell Paul Pogba.
The Red Devils are preparing the prospect of £89million record signing Pogba quitting United for a SECOND time.
His Old Trafford contract expires in summer 2022 and he has given no indication as yet that he is willing to commit to a new one.
And Goretzka, 26, is currently at a similar stand-off over his future with Bayern Munich.
The former Schalke ace could be available on a free transfer in a year’s time or – if there is no resolution – may have to be sold for a knockdown fee this summer.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are interested in signing Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi, according to reports.
The European champions are unable to sign Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa – currently on loan at Juventus – and see Berardi as an alternative.
According to Italian website Alfredo Pedulla, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund have expressed an interest in signing Berardi.
The 26-year-old was part of Italy’s successful Euro 2020 squad after scoring 17 Serie A goals for Sassuolo last term.
Finally, Man City are willing to offer up four players to help secure a swap transfer for Harry Kane, according to reports.
As revealed by SunSport in May, the Premier League champions would happily use Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus as bargaining chips.
But according to L’Equipe, now Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva may be suitable candidates to head to Tottenham as part of the exchange.
