Juventus Ready To Offer Dybala For Lukaku
Gianluca Di Marzio is bringing a lot of news tonight! According to the Italian transfer market specialist, Juventus are considering offering Paulo Dybala in exchange for Romelu Lukaku. This news appeared out of nowhere, with the Old Lady thinking about giving the Devils the 25-year-old Argentine, provided the Belgian goes the other way.
This would be a very interesting deal and many Man United fans are ecstatic on social media about the possibility of this happening. The creative and talented Dybala would definitely be an intriguing addition to the squad, offering more diverse qualities to the team.
Inter To Continue Lukaku Pursuit
But it looks like Inter are not giving up on Lukaku, either. Di Marzio notes that Nerrazurri are readying a new offer of €70m plus bonuses for the Belgian, which could get them closer to signing the player. However, before Man United answer to such bid, they might want to see if Juventus’ interest is real. In such circumstances, the player’s price could go up a bit easier.
Inter and Antonio Conte obviously really want to see Lukaku in black-and-blue…
Milinkovic-Savic To Arrive If Pogba Leaves
Paul Pogba’s departure from Manchester United does not seem as close as it was a month ago, but Sky in Germany are reporting that things could change very fast. They say that there ‘is momentum in regards to his move to Real Madrid, as Man United are concretely negotiating the transfer of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’ from Lazio. Sky in Germany also suggest the Serbian midfielder will cost €75m. The only thing that has to happen before Milinkovic-Savic puts pen on paper is for Pogba to leave the club.
With the two players playing in similar roles, this could truly happen, but things are, at least publicly, slowing down in regards to Pogba’s move to Real Madrid.
Henderson Returns To Sheffield United
Amongst some a little bit less interesting news updates, Dean Henderson signed new contract with Manchester United and immediately left the club on loan, again to Sheffield United. He signed a new three-year-deal, with the option for another year.
The 22-year-old has done well on a couple of loans in previous seasons, but especially during the last one. Henderson was a regular for Sheffield United in their promotion campaign to Premier League and now he will get his first taste of top-flight football. He completely deserved that. Now he will get his chance to prove himself at a higher level, after Henderson took part in UEFA Under-21 European Championship in Italy and San Marino.
Eric Bailly Injury Update
Last but not the least, we have learned more about Eric Bailly’s injury against Tottenham Hotspur. As it turns out, the injury is not as bad as many feared it could be and results of tests have shown that the Ivory Coast international has injured meniscus in his knee. That means he will be out of contention for six weeks. With many thinking he could have had ligament damage, this is good news and by early September, we could see Bailly back in action.
