Manchester United have been given the chance to sign stars of AC Milan and Juventus in a £118m double raid, while Lionel Messi is against a Barcelona swoop for a €100m midfield target, according to Tuesday’s European papers.
UNITED GIVEN CHANCE TO COMPLETE DEAL FOR TWO RAIOLA CLIENTS
Chelsea and Manchester United continue to monitor Gianluigi Donnarumma’s situation at AC Milan and could look to sign him if they lose Thibaut Courtois or David De Gea, according to reports in Italy.
La Corriere dello Sport claims super-agent Mino Raiola is keen to get his client out of Milan this summer, despite the club’s current revival under caretaker coach Gennaro Gattuso, and is eager to offer him to United.
United of course would have no need to sign the Italian given David De Gea’s undisputed selection as their No 1, but amid talk PSG could launch a huge bid for the Spaniard, Jose Mourinho’s side have once again been linked with Donnarumma.
The teenager is rated at around €110million by Milan and it would take a world-record fee for a goalkeeper to sign him; however that fee would be dwarfed by the money PSG are said to be ready to offer for De Gea.
All the talk, however, looks pie in the sky given Mourinho has issued another warning over De Gea’s future on Tuesdaywith United in no hurry to sell their prized asset.
Nonetheless, Raiola is clearly keen to get his client out of Milan this summer, though Chelsea’s chances of signing him would also hinge on Courtois’ future and the Blues’ apparently-thinning chances of securing Champions League qualification next season.
Meanwhile, more reports in the Italian press claims another Raiola client, Blaise Matuidi, is also high up on Mourinho’s wanted list.
According to Rai Sportthe Red Devils are looking at a possible move for France international, who is valued at a modest €20million (£18million) by Juventus – a fee that is unlikely to scare United off.
