Bruno Fernandes bargain

Manchester United could sign Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes on the cheap.

That’s according to Portuguese publication O Jogo, who claim Sporting are in financial trouble and desperate to raise funds.

It’s said the Portuguese giants have £57million in outstanding debts and would happily offload Fernandes for £65m to balance the books and sign a replacement.

Fernandes, who was linked with United, Real Madrid and Tottenham this summer, has continued his tremendous form this season – netting nine goals and providing six assists in 17 appearances.

Tahith Chong swap

Juventus are plotting a swap deal to sign Manchester United winger Tahith Chong.

Chong, 19, has just over seven months remaining on his Old Trafford contract and is reportedly interested in leaving the club.

The Netherlands Under-21 international has caught the attention of Juventus, who are hopeful of snapping up his signature for free next summer.

However, Italian publication Corriere dello Sport say the Serie A champions have another idea – and that’s to include him in the deal for Mario Mandzukic.

Wanted: Dejan Kulusevski

Manchester United and Arsenal are set to battle it out for Parma playmaker Dejan Kulusevski.

Kulusevski, 19, caught United’s eye by chance when the club’s chief scout flew to monitor Chris Smalling’s progress at Roma.

The Sweden international, who earned his first international cap against the Faroe Islands on Monday, has scored twice and provided five assists in 12 Serie A appearances.

Unai Emery’s Gunners are also interested in the winger, who is expected to cost £40million.

Complex deal

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is desperate to sign £342million-rated Kylian Mbappe.

And he’s apparently deep in talks with super agent Jorge Mendes to make it happen.

Mendes represents both international superstars and also enjoys a good relationship with the Real Madrid chief.

Publication Eldesmarque claims Perez wants Cristiano Ronaldo offered to PSG to enable him to sign Mbappe next summer.
