Man Utd, Chelsea agree £50m for Matic
Matic will cost Manchester United over £50million from Chelsea
The Chelsea midfielder has already agreed terms to make the switch to Old Trafford.
But the deal will not go through until the clubs can agree on extra payments United will have to make to the champions, based on their results and the number of games played by the Serbian.
United have already completed the signings of centre-back, Victor Lindelof and striker Romelu Lukaku.
And Mourinho admitted he was looking for two more signings — thought to be a wide player and a defensive midfielder.
The Red Devils boss’s signing of Matic at Stamford Bridge in 2014 was seen as one of the key reasons they went onto claim the title.
After a dip in form in 2015-16, which was replicated by many of his team-mates at Chelsea and saw Mourinho shown the door, he returned to form, playing a key role for Antonio Conte’s championship-winning side last term.
Behrami to leave Watford
Watford boss Marco Silva expects Valon Behrami to leave the club before the summer transfer window closes.
“Valon is working on the training ground but he’s one player who won’t stay with us,” Silva said after the 0-0 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.
“It’s time for him to find other solutions for his career, and we will see where he will play, but he will not stay in our squad.”
Everton eyes Reid
Everton is weighing up a £9million move for West Ham defender Winston Reid, according to the Mail on Sunday.
The 29-year-old could come in as cover for defender Ramiro Funes Mori at Goodison Park, though the Kiwi has only just returned to training following surgery on a shin injury.
United in for Dendoncker
Manchester United will have to pay up to £31m if they want to tempt Anderlecht to sell Leander Dendoncker.
The 22-year-old Belgian scored against United in the quarter-final of the Europa League last season, and Anderlecht sporting director Herman van Holsbeeck has said they could sell Dendoncker for around £30m.
“We want to cherish him, but if a club is willing to pay between €25m and €35m, we have a problem.”
Liverpool ready to sell Coutinho after CL qualifier
Liverpool is prepared to sell Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona – but only after their Champions League qualifier.
Report says a deal is getting closer as talks are at an advanced stage — with both clubs expecting to come to an agreement.
Barcelona is likely to see their transfer coffers significantly increased with the expected sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.
Nou Camp directors met with Coutinho’s representatives in London to think up the best possible strategy to complete the transfer.
The Catalans will make a bid of around £70m and leave Coutinho to take care of the rest.
Jurgen Klopp wants him to play in at least the first leg of their Champions League play-off tie regardless of his future.
Nasri’s future uncertain
Pep Guardiola has paid tribute to Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri but says his future at the club is up to him and his representatives.
“He knows the situation,” Guardiola said. “We have a lot of midfield players, so we’re going to see.
“It is like [Eliaquim] Mangala. That’s a decision they have to take with their managers [representatives], but we take care of them when they are here, just like we take care of every player, from Brahim Diaz to Vincent Kompany.
“The past isn’t important, it is all about tomorrow.”
Sakho may join Roma
Liverpool defender, Mamadou Sakho could be on his way to Italy with Roma if the Serie A club comes up with £30m.
Sakho was on loan at Crystal Palace last year, and is likely to leave the club this summer having fallen behind in the pecking order at Anfield.
