Transfer news: The latest rumours from Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and all the top teams Featured

Goal takes a look at the biggest transfer stories from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond ahead of the opening of the summer window


AC Milan will offer €60 million to Real Madrid for striker Alvaro Morata.
The Spanish striker has apparently already agreed to join the Serie A club on an €8m-a-season contract, and Milan will now put the sizeable transfer bid to Real Madrid after the Champions League final.


Manchester United have been told they will need to splash €60 million (£52m) to sign Benfica defender Victor Lindelof.
Jose Mourinho's men were believed to be close to signing the Swedish defender in the January transfer market but opted to wait until the summer to pursue the deal.
However, Benfica are insisting that United activate his contract clause if they want to sign him ahead of 2017-18, which could lead to a protracted transfer saga should they be unwilling to spend so much.


Arsene Wenger will be warned to stop "dithering" over transfers by Arsenal's board today ahead of expected confirmation of his contract extension at the club.
Missing out on Gonzalo Higuain in 2013 will be highlighted as an example when the Arsenal manager failed to act decisively on transfers.
Malaga pair Sandro Ramirez and Pablo Fornals are reportedly two of the Gunners' targets this summer, plus Wenger must deal with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez having just 12 months left on their lucrative contracts.


Wolfsburg are set to complete their first transfer of the summer window by signing Hertha Berlin and USA defender John Brooks.
The German club survived relegation from the top flight by winning this weekend's play off against Eintracht Braunschweig and are looking to rebuild their squad in the hopes of a much-improved 2017-18.
Buying Brooks for £17m would break the current record transfer for a USA player, with Jozy Altidore's £13m move to Sunderland currently the highest paid.


Manchester City face stiff competition from a number of their Premier League rivals in their bid to sign Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy.
Chelsea and Liverpool have both accelerated their interest in recent days while Manchester United are also monitoring developments.
Full-back Mendy is keen to move to England this summer, though Barcelona are also keen on the 22-year-old.


Manchester United are keeping an eye on Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale.
Should the 27-year-old not start the Champions League final on Saturday, the Red Devils hope that will be an indication that Bale will be for sale this summer.


Former England manager Roy Hodgson hopes to succeed Sam Allardyce at Crystal Palace.
The ex-Liverpool boss has been out of management since stepping down following the Three Lions' last-16 exit at Euro 2016.


Arsenal will make a final push to keep Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
The Gunners hope the FA Cup triumph and improved salaries will convince the star duo to say, with the club prepared to offer them wages totalling more than £30 million combined.


Manchester United are leading the chase for Tottenham full-back Danny Rose.
The England international has also been linked with Manchester City, but they are now closing in on a deal for Monaco's Benjamin Mendy.


Arsene Wenger will be handed at least £100 million to spend in the summer transfer window if he signs a new contract at Arsenal.
The Frenchman is yet to reveal what his future holds, but is expected to stay on and push for new recruits after missing out on Champions League qualification this season.


Chelsea have asked about the potential availability of Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng.
The Blues have made Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk their top defensive target, but are prepared to explore other options.


West Ham are desperate to add Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, and will offer Adrian as a makeweight.
The Hammers would need to pay around £17m to make the deal happen, with Adrian valued at around £8m.


Ander Herrera will reject the advances of Barcelona to commit his future to Manchester United.
New Barca manager Ernesto Valverde is keen to sign Herrera, whom he worked with at Athletic Bilbao, but the midfielder will instead sign fresh terms with the Red Devils.


Bayern Munich are interested in signing Willian from Chelsea.
The Bavarian giants are keen to refresh their forward line, but Willian would cost around €50 million, which would make him the most expensive player in Bayern's history.


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has set Real Madrid an ultimatum regarding their pursuit of David De Gea, according to Diariogol , with the Portuguese demanding Raphael Varane as part of any deal.
Varane is seen as the natural successor to Sergio Ramos at the Santiago Bernabeu and the Spanish capital club have a big decision to make on who they deem more important to their long-term future.


Arsene Wenger will put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with Arsenal.
It is said that the club's board are meeting on Monday to finalise the contract offer and Wenger's extension should be announced before the end of the week.


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been handed £200 million to spend on new signings this summer.
The Blues boss is keen to bolster his squad in a number of positions, with Virgil van Dijk, Romelu Lukaku and Tiemoue Bakayoko among his top targets.


Manchester City have made a world record €130 million (£114m) bid for Monaco teenager Kylian Mbappe.
The 18-year-old has been in sensational form for Monaco this season, helping them win Ligue 1 with 15 goals in 29 games. City face stiff competition for his signature, with Real Madrid reported to have matched their bid for the France international.

  • Liverpool complete signing of Mohamed Salah for an estimated £34m from AS Roma

    Liverpool have completed the signing of Mohamed Salah from AS Roma for a fee believed to be around £34m.

    The news comes after weeks of speculation, with Liverpool’s approaches for the Egypt international initially being rebuffed by Roma.

    But Salah – who recorded 15 goals and 11 assists in Serie A last season – was keen on the move, and on Thursday completed his medical to return to the Premier League.
    “I will give 100 per cent and give everything for the club," Salah told the official Liverpool website. "I really want to win something for this club.

    “We have a great team and very good players. I was watching the games last year and everyone was giving 100 per cent to win something.

    “Everyone can see the coach gives everything. I hope to see that together we can give everything to win something for the club, for the supporters and for us.”
    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp struggled to find a solution when his side were without Sadio Mane last season, but the German coach believes that Salah could be the man to solve that issue for the title hopefuls.

    “His pace is incredible, he gives us more attacking threat and we are already strong in this area," Klopp said. "I like that we will make it even more competitive.

    “He knows the Premier League, he has pedigree in the Champions League and he is one of the most important players for his country. His record in Italy has been outstanding and he possesses qualities that will enhance our team and squad. I have followed him since he emerged at Basel and he has matured into a really good player.

    “He is an ambitious player who wants to win and win at the highest level; he knows he can fulfil those ambitions with Liverpool. I welcome him and his family into our Liverpool family.”
    This is Salah's second spell in the Premier League. The 25-year-old joined Chelsea in an £11m move from Basel three years ago, but struggled for game time at Stamford Bridge and was shipped out on loan to first Fiorentina and then Roma.

    Salah completed a permanent move to Roma for £13m last summer.

  • Dani Alves drops Manchester City hint

    Juventus full-back Dani Alves has hinted that he will join Manchester City after admitting “everyone knows my admiration for Pep Guardiola.”

    Alves is set to leave Juve on a free transfer after just one season in Turin, and the Brazilian refused to play down the idea of reuniting with Guardiola, whom he played under at Barcelona between 2008 and 2012, winning three La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues.

    “I’ve learned that you can never stop doing what you love and I love music. Music’s my passion, football’s a hobby,” he told Conversa com Bial.

    “Leaving Juve on a free transfer? I don’t know what’s happening. Have I asked to leave? I’ve left the work to my agents, and they’ve said they’d talk to me once they found a resolution.

    “If I go, it’ll be without any conflicts, without any problems, as opposed to what’s being said.

    “City my next team? Well, everyone knows my admiration for Pep Guardiola…”

  • Fabinho would find Manchester United switch 'very tempting'

    Monaco midfielder Fabinho would be tempted by a move to Manchester United.

    The 23-year-old has been linked with a move away from the principality, having helped Leonardo Jardim's men to impressively win Ligue 1 and reach the Champions League semi-finals.

    Fabinho, who can also slot in at right-back, has - like many of his team-mates - been attracting admiring glances from some of European football's biggest clubs.

    United are among those linked with the Brazil international, who told Esporte Interativo in his homeland that he would be open to an approach.

    "If Mourinho invites me (to join United) it would be very tempting, but, first of all, I would have to talk with my agent and with Monaco to make the things right," Fabinho said.

    "But Manchester United is a great team and I would think about it, for sure."
    Tottenham's Eric Dier and Nemanja Matic at Chelsea are other midfield options said to be under consideration as United look to strengthen this summer. Reports that the latter has already verbally agreed personal terms have been dismissed by the club.

    Benfica's Victor Lindelof has been United's only summer acquisition to date and Press Association Sport understands the club intend to make three or four high-quality additions in total.

    Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is a player Mourinho hopes to bring to Old Trafford, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic's injury and impending exit meaning a frontman has become a priority.
