Joao Felix to Atletico
Manchester United transfer target Joao Felix has been lined up for a summer move to Atletico Madrid, reports claim.
Express Sport revealed in April that United and Manchester City were set to do battle for the in-demand Benfica forward at the end of the season.
However, it seems Manchester United and co. are set to be left disappointed if the 19-year-old follows the advice of his agent.
The Mirror report Jorge Mendes, known for his dealing with United in the past, is eager for Felix to head to Atletico Madrid.
Mendes is said to see the Wanda Metropolitano as the ideal place for Felix to continue his development next season.
Wanted: Andre Onana
Manchester United are planning to raid Ajax for goalkeeper Andre Onana IF David de Gea leaves the club.
With just over a year left on De Gea’s contract, the 28-year-old has been linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
And despite numerous efforts to tie the Spaniard down to a new contract – nothing has been agreed.
According to The Sun, Ed Woodward and co. have started planning for his departure and are considering Onana, 23.
The Red Devils have been impressed with the Cameroon international, who is viewed as a cheaper and more attainable than Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak.
Paulo Dybala exit
Manchester United target Paulo Dybala could be forced to leave Juventus this summer.
That’s according to Italian football expert Adam Digby, who believes Cristiano Ronaldo’s presence has hampered his scoring abilities.
“I think Dybala will be the one player who is forced to move on,” Digby told Sky Sports News. “He only scored three goals in the league and he really is the player that has been marginalised by Ronaldo’s presence.
“I can fully see him moving on this summer in search of somewhere he can play his more natural role.”
Antoine Griezmann twist
Manchester United have been given hope in their quest to sign Antoine Griezmann after the Frenchman admitted he may leave La Liga.
Griezmann will leave Atletico Madrid this summer after five years in the Spanish capital and despite Paris Saint-Germain reportedly overtaking Barcelona in the battle for his signature – Manchester United are still keen.
“There’s a need for patience, as it’s still soon,” Griezmann said. “I want my future to be decided more than anyone, but there’s a need to wait.
“I don’t know if I’ll remain in Spain. Maybe in two weeks we’ll know something. I just want to play football and have fun.”
