Manchester United dominate the transfer gossip with options for Mason Greenwood emerging, a Ryan Gravenberch price confirmed and more…
WHERE NEXT FOR GREENWOOD?
Mason Greenwood will never play for Manchester United again (yay) but he will play football somewhere, and The Times report that ‘United had received numerous phone calls from clubs across Europe and the Middle East’, with Istanbul Basaksehir the only club mentioned in that particular report.
But The Sun specifically mention Al-Ettifaq, the Saudi Arabian club managed by Steven Gerrard, and a £10m-a-year contract. They also mention Turkish club Galatasaray and Jose Mourinho’s Roma. The Portuguese was the first Manchester United manager to put Greenwood in a first-team squad so is very aware of his talents.
GRAVE PRICE LEARNED
Considering the prices being paid for central midfielders this summer, this seems ludicrous but the Mirror claim that Bayern Munich are only asking £22m for Ryan Gravenberch, who is a target for both Liverpool and Manchester United.
We know the Dutchman is surplus to requirements – Bayern have Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka as well as Konrad Laimer – but that seems a very reasonable price. That should be affordable to United, who would like to reunite him with his old Ajax boss Erik ten Hag. But it is said that Gravenberch remains interested in Liverpool as they wanted him last summer before he headed to Munich for an ultimately frustrating season.
AMRABAT LEFT FOR MAN UTD
Manchester United would appear to have a clear run at Sofyan Amrabat as Liverpool’s interest ended when they bought Japan captain Wataru Endo, according to Fabrizio Romano.
“Reds had contact with the camp of Sofyan Amrabat to ask for information so how the player would cost on Fiorentina’s side. Terms of the contract are discussed among all the conditions of the deal. It was a good conversation but then internally, Liverpool decided to invest that money on Endo for multiple reasons,” said Romano.
“So I think, from what I am hearing at the moment. They are not in contact with Fiorentina or on the player’s side anymore so I don’t see Amrabat joining Liverpool.
“I still think he has a very good chance to leave the club in the final days of the window but not for Liverpool.”
