Transfer talk: £30m Ederson set for Saudi as Man Utd look for a new home for toxic Greenwood

July 5 – Manchester City star Ederson could be the first big name of the summer to join the Saudi Pro League, as the Premier League champions brace for a bid for the 30-year-old Brazil international.

A sum of about £30 million would be enough for City to let the player leave, with Ederson reportedly keen on the move.

Marseille have entered the race to sign 22-year-old disgraced Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood. The Englishman impressed during a loan spell with Getafe last season, but the Red Devils still wish to get the talented player off the books due to intense controversy surrounding Greenwood in England.

Lucas Paqueta could be on his way to Brazil in a bizarre twist to his transfer saga. Despite being closely linked to a high-profile switch to Manchester City in recent windows, complications surrounding the player’s betting offences could mean that West Ham would be forced to sell abroad, with Flamengo leading the chase for his signature.

FC Barcelona have become the frontrunners to sign Athletic Bilbao and Spain winger Nico Williams, with Arsenal and Chelsea at risk of missing out on the 21-year-old.

The rocket-powered youngster has become one of the standout stars of Euro 2024, flourishing alongside Barcelona youngster Lamine Yamal in the Spanish frontline and causing Joan Laporta to lick his lips at the prospect of reuniting the two at club level.

Lille defender Leny Yoro wants a move to Real Madrid and the 18-year-old Frenchman is waiting for the clubs to agree a deal, while Liverpool and Paris St-Germain are ready to pounce if a deal collapses.

Brighton swooped to take advantage of Liverpool’s delay in sealing a deal for Feyenoord midfielder Mats Wieffer after Reds boss Arne Slot gave the green light to reunite with the 24-year-old Dutchman following their time together at the Dutch club.

Juventus ready to sell Italy international Frederico Chiesa for a rumoured fee of £25 million, with the Italian not part of Thiago Motta’s plans for the new season.

Juve are looking for midfield reinforcements, though, with a keen eye on Teun Koopmeiners of Atalanta. Valued at €50m by Transfermarkt, the Dutchman would mark an excellent, albeit expensive, addition to the club’s strengthening midfield, with a deal for Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz agreed last week.
