Where will the drama be today? Manchester United will be in the thick of it. The Red Devils will almost certainly sign Sergio Reguilon on loan from Spurs since it is widely reported that the Spaniard passed a medical on Thursday night. They should also sign a keeper in the shape of Altay Beyindir from Fenerbahce. Then there is Sofyan Amrabat…
The Morocco midfielder has sat patiently at Fiorentina, waiting for United to make their move. When they eventually picked up the phone, Fiorentina hung up on them after being offered 20 quid, a Fred The Red pencil case, and Mike Phelan’s old jock strap.
Luckily for United, it seems Amrabat still has eyes only for them. There were rumours from Italy that Fulham might make a play for the midfielder as they search for a replacement for Joao Palhinha, who could be Bayern Munich bound, and Fiorentina say ‘there are multiple negotiations ongoing’. But Fabrizio Romano reckons Amrabat is still focused on a move to Old Trafford and the Red Devils will return with at least one more offer that 90min suggests might consist of a £5million loan fee with a £20million option or obligation next summer.
While Amrabat waits for the green light to fly to Manchester, Ryan Gravenberch is already been given the go ahead to take off for Liverpool after the Reds agreed a £34million deal with Bayern.
But Sky Germany says Gravenberch has been held up in Germany after the cancelation of his scheduled flight to the UK on Thursday evening. He will now travel this morning, with a race against time for the Netherlands midfielder to registered for Sunday’s clash with Aston Villa.
Gravenberch’s exit leaves Bayern looking for a No.6, with Palhinha their primary target. 90min says the Bavarians’ opening offer of £47million has been rejected, but with personal terms already agreed, it is expected that a deal will be reached.
So Fulham will be fun to watch today. Sky Sports says they have been in touch with Man Utd regarding Scott McTominay, while the Evening Standard suggests Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg could be heading to Craven Cottage. If neither of those moves come off, Football Insider reckons Fulham could hijack Nottingham Forest’s swoop for Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana.
We can expect Forest to be faffing right up to the deadline. The Daily Mail says they have revived talks with PSV over a move for Ibrahim Sangare, while Fabrizio Romano says Callum Hudson-Odoi is heading to the City Ground from Chelsea, even while Fulham are still sniffing.
And there is always Tottenham. Aside from packing off Reguilon to Old Trafford, Ange Postecoglou wants a midfielder and a forward on deadline day. The Evening Standard says they will go hard for Forest’s Brennan Johnson, while the Telegraph claims Spurs are considering a bid for Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher. Best get a shift on, lads.
Eric Dier could join Reguilon and Hojbjerg through the Spurs exit but Football Insider reports Burnley have been knocked back with their offer to take the England international on loan.
