    United believe the asking price is too high for the 30-year-old who has just one year remaining on his contract.

    Atletico do have the option to extend his contract by a year though, which is why they’re asking for such a high fee.

    But with United on a spending spree this summer and Kieran Trippier desperate to return to the Manchester area near where he grew up there could be developments in this one in the coming days.

    A wealth of clubs have been linked with Kabak, 21, since but a move has failed to get off the ground.

    Therefore, Schalke could be forced into terminating his contract as they struggle to pay his wages.

  • SAINTS MAKE THEIR MOVE

    Southampton are set to win the race for Chelsea youngster Tino Livramento, according to reports.

    Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Willian, Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah are all reportedly available for transfer as the Gunners target a squad rebuild.

    A combined £75million has already been spent this summer on Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Ben White, but the Gunners are keen to continue the spending.

    And having been linked with a £70million move for Lautaro Martinez, six outgoings would go some way to funding that move.

  • SANCHEZ SWOOP

    Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez is reportedly in talks over a transfer to Sevilla to replace Chelsea target Jules Kounde, DYLAN TERRY reports.

    Sanchez, 25, joined Spurs in 2017 for what was at the time a club record fee of £42million.

    But he could now be on his way out of North London as Sevilla prepare for life without Frenchman Kounde.

    Chelsea are closing in on a deal for the 22-year-old centre-back having already had a bid of £30million plus Kurt Zouma rejected.

    And according to The Mail, if Kounde’s transfer is confirmed, talks could intensify as the LaLiga side search for someone to fill his boots.

  • AXEL BATTLE

    Aston Villa and Newcastle United are set to battle it out for the loan signature of Axel Tuanzebe, according to reports.

    The 23-year-old is being linked with a return to Villa where he spent 18 months on loan from 2018-2019, even helping Villa to promotion to the Premier League.

    But Magpies boss Steve Bruce is keen to bring Tuanzebe to Newcastle, with Bruce also being the man who originally brought Tuanzebe to Villa on loan when he was in charge at the West Midlands club.

    What is clear is that Tuanzebe is likely to leave this summer on loan, with Ole Gunnar Solskajer even confirming that.

    The arrival of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid means United have plenty of options at the back, with Tuanzebe unlikely to get many first team minutes should he stay at Old Trafford.

  • FEE SET

    Clubs will have to pay £30million to sign Renato Sanches from Lille this summer, according to L’Equipe.

    Barcelona, Liverpool and Arsenal are all said to be interested in the 23-year-old who has turned his career around in France.

    After disappointing at Bayern Munich and during his shock loan to Swansea Sanches has enjoyed some success with Lille, even winning a league title last season.

    With Arsenal on the look for a creative midfielder as a long-term replacement for Mesut Ozil, could a move for the Portugese international be on the cards?

  • GREALISH BOOST

    A Jack Grealish move to Manchester City may pave the way for Manchester United to sign Spurs striker Harry Kane.

    Should Jack Grealish secure a £100million move to Manchester City in the coming days, a move for Kane is unlikely due to the huge transfer fee that would be needed.

    But with Grealish reportedly edging closer to a move to the Etihad, could Harry Kane be on his way to Old Trafford?

    ESPN have linked the 28-year-old with the Red Devils, and with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in the market for a striker there could be more developments to come on this one.
