Wanted: Dejan Kulusevski

Manchester United have submitted a bid for Atalanta winger Dejan Kulusevski.

That’s according to reports in Italy, who claim the Red Devils have already offered £21million for the Sweden international.

Kulusevski, who is currently on loan at Parma, is being tracked by a number of European clubs including Liverpool, Juventus and Arsenal.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are reported to have acted first with a £21m bid – which is still short of Atalanta’s £30m valuation.

Jadon Sancho to Chelsea

Chelsea are confident of winning the battle to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

That’s according to Goal, who claim Frank Lampard’s side are prepared to shatter their transfer record to secure his services either in January or next summer.

Chelsea’s current transfer record stands at £72million paid for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao.

But Goal claim Chelsea executives will green-light a bid that could potentially dwarf the £89m Barcelona paid Dortmund for Ousmane Dembele in 2017.

Sancho, 19, is reported to be unhappy at the Westfalenstadion with Liverpool, Barcelona and Manchester United also competing for his signature.

Memphis Depay plan

Lyon plan to offer Memphis Depay a new contract amid plenty of interest from Premier League clubs for the Dutch star.

Depay struggled previously in England at Manchester United but the Red Devils, Liverpool and Tottenham have all been linked with the winger.

However Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas has revealed that the Ligue 1 club plan to offer their player a new deal, though he knows it will be down to Depay to decide his future.

“We will make him a contract extension offer because he is an exceptional player,” Aulas told BeIN Sports. “He will be the one who will ultimately decide. He is a sweet boy, an interesting man.”
