Gossip: Arsenal Eyes Cancelo as Barcelona Struggle with Funds

Manchester United Targets Expensive Midfielder; Chelsea Offers Duo to Real Madrid

In the latest transfer news, Arsenal appears to be edging ahead in the race for Joao Cancelo as Barcelona faces financial constraints, while Manchester United eyes a pricey midfielder and Chelsea explores options to raise funds.

Joao Cancelo, currently on loan at Barcelona from Manchester City, has caught the eye of the Catalan giants, who are eager to secure his services beyond the current season. However, the reported £40 million price tag for the Portugal defender poses a challenge for Barcelona, potentially paving the way for Arsenal to make a move. The Gunners, previously linked with Cancelo, could capitalize on Barcelona’s financial limitations to swoop for the 29-year-old, who remains under contract at Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Manchester United is reportedly eyeing Benfica midfielder Joao Neves as a priority target for the upcoming summer transfer window. The teenager comes with a hefty price tag of £103 million, making him an expensive acquisition. However, United may explore alternatives, including Adrien Rabiot of Juventus, who could provide a more cost-effective option. Additionally, Dayot Upamecano of Bayern Munich is being considered as a defensive target by United if Bayern signals willingness to sell.

In a bid to raise funds, Chelsea has reportedly offered Real Madrid the opportunity to sign Enzo Fernandez and Marc Cucurella for a combined fee of £166 million. Chelsea’s financial maneuver comes amid the need to comply with Premier League Profit and Sustainability Regulations. However, it remains to be seen whether Real Madrid will entertain Chelsea’s offer, especially as they prioritize other targets like Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies.
