Man Utd confident of landing Alderweireld and Willian

Manchester United is confident of signing Toby Alderweireld and Willian from Tottenham and Chelsea respectively.
According to the Evening Standard, the Belgium international is likely to join United in a deal worth more than £40m.

Jose Mourinho remains a fan of Willian from their time together at Stamford Bridge, with the Brazil international open to a reunion at Old Trafford.

Alderweireld looks set to leave this summer due to a contract dispute with the club.

The 29-year-old’s current deal includes a release clause of £25m which can be triggered next summer, so the club are likely to sanction a sale this year to get full value.

Mourinho eyes Bonucci

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will try to tempt AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci to Old Trafford this summer, according to reports.

The 31-year-old was linked to Chelsea and Real Madrid last summer as he left Juventus for Milan.

The centre-back ended up staying in Italy due to his son’s poor health and he could now be persuaded to move out of the country.

Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport claim Mourinho is interested in Bonucci having been left frustrated with his defence this season.

Chelsea are set to make Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles their primary defensive target this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

The Blues are ready to beef up their backline following their failure to qualify for the Champions League

And having pulled out of the race to sign Toby Alderweireld, all their attentions have now turned to securing Lascelles.

Juventus ready Morata bid

Juventus are readying to make a summer move for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Juventus eyes Morata as Mario Mandzukic replacement, who they fear will leave the club as he searches for a new challenge.

Morata played for the Seria Champions from 2014 to 2016.

Balotelli offered to Dortmund

Mario Balotelli was offered to Borussia Dortmund by the player’s agent Mino Raiola, according to Bild.

The Bundesliga club were invited to move for the Italian striker, who is on the look-out for a new club ahead of his contract expiring at Nice.

Dortmund declined to sign the player, however, with the club focusing on alternative targets, including Frankfurt winger Marius Wolf.
