Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd eyeing £50m bid, Chelsea identify top target, Liverpool exit | Football | Sport

Man Utd eyeing £50m deal

United are keeping tabs on Andre Onana and think he could be their long-term replacement for David de Gea.

The Mirror claim United are willing to pay up to £50million for Onana, of Dutch champions Ajax.

It is even suggested the Red Devils could make a January bid for the keeper.

That’s despite De Gea recently signing a new long-term deal at Old Trafford.

Real Madrid could reportedly renew their long-standing interest in the United No 1 given persisting doubts over Thibaut Courtois.

Arsenal exit

Arsenal star Bernd Leno is being targeted by Bayern Munich as Manuel Neuer’s successor.

According to The Sun, Bayern are worried about Neuer’s form as he has only managed three clean sheets in the Bundesliga this season.

The Germany international has been considered as one of the best goalkeepers in the world for a long time but recent injuries, combined with some loss of form, have raised doubts at the Allianz Arena.

That is why the Bavarian giants have turned to Leno whose Premier League experience has raised his stock following an impressive seven-year stint at Bayer Leverkusen.

Chelsea identify top target

Chelsea are keeping tabs on £70million-rated Sergej Milinkovic-Savic for when their transfer ban is eventually lifted.

The Blues were not able to make any signings in the summer due to a FIFA ban imposed on them because of their past transfer policy on foreign minors.

According to The Mirror, Chelsea officials are confident that their ban could be lifted by January, at which point they will make Milinkovic-Savic their No 1 target.

The Lazio star has long been a target of Premier League clubs and is high on Lampard’s list of potential new recruits.

Liverpool exit blocked

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has blocked Dejan Lovren’s January exit, it’s claimed.

Football Insider claim the Reds were willing to sell the Croatia international in the summer.

Liverpool were demanding £30m for the centre-back, 30, before the start of the season.

However, Football Insider say Klopp has made a transfer U-turn and he will not let Lovren leave in January.

Klopp will instead hold talks over Lovren’s future at the end of the season.
