Man Utd’s Ansu Fati bid

Express Sport understands Manchester United have been told that they will need to smash the world record and pay-out an eye-watering £355million if they want to land Barcelona wonderkid Ansu Fati.

United are tracking winger Fati, 17, who is being touted as football’s next big star after coming off Barca’s never ending conveyor belt of talent.

Fati who was born in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa signed his first professional contract last summer and in August became Barcelona’s youngest ever goalscorer.

Barcelona rebuffed the first offer worth around £85m and aren’t willing to do business no matter how much money Ed Woodward attempts to put on the table.

The only way Fati will be allowed to leave the Catalan giants is if United meet the full £355m buy-out clause in his contract.

Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool?

Liverpool are plotting an audacious attempt to swap Sadio Mane for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe, according to The Sun.

It is claimed Anfield chiefs are concerned about Mane’s future as he is yet to agree an extension to his current deal.

Liverpool could reportedly be tempted to splash the cash on Mbappe, despite pulling out of a deal to sign Timo Werner from RB Leipzig for financial reasons.

The Sun claim Anfield chiefs are discussing the potential of breaking the world transfer record to bring Mbappe to Merseyside, and could bid £200m and Mane in an attempt to sign the Frenchman.

Chelsea eye Dean Henderson

Chelsea are looking to sign £50m-rated Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

According to The Sun, the Blues hope the offer of game-time in the Champions League will convince the English stopper to move to Stamford Bridge.

Old Trafford officials are hoping to tie Henderson down to a new contract but he is likely to be loaned out if he puts pen to paper because of David De Gea.

Chelsea, who have already wrapped up two signings, have the cash to splash in the summer window.
