    GOOD MORNING FOOTY TRANSFER FANS

    Manchester United have reportedly lined-up teenage sensation Eduardo Camavinga to replace Paul Pogba – but will face a fight with Real Madrid.

    Reports say the Red Devils have 'put in place' a mechanism to sign the 17-year-old as interest in him rises.

    Spanish outlet AS report that United are putting the building blocks in place to sign the young midfielder from Rennes.

    His contract runs down in 2022 and he has already turned down a renewal from the surprise Ligue 1 league leaders.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are reportedly 'posing a threat' to Real Madrid, who have long had ambitions to capture Camavinga.

    Meanwhile, Chelsea were one of many clubs to try and tempt Marc-Andre ter Stegen during the transfer window.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, the Blues urged the goalkeeper to reject a new Barcelona contract.

    Juventus and Inter Milan were also poking at Ter Stegen, 28, in a bid to lure him away from the Blaugrana.

    But, with his contract to 2022 currently up for renewal, the German apparently wants to remain in Spain.

    Finally, SunSport can exclusively reveal Sergio Romero has begged United to let him leave after his transfer window hell.

    It is understood the outcast stopper does not want any sort of pay-off from the club, despite being owed around £1.5m.

    He wants to be released from his contract by the end of the month, and fancies a switch stateside to Major League Soccer.

    If United refuse to let him go, Romero will see out the final few months of his deal, which runs out next summer.

    CENTRAL FOCUS

    Man Utd have reportedly made Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde their top target.

    SIGGY STARDUST

    Everton turned down a deadline bid from Al Hilal for Gylfi Sigurdsson.

    The Athletic claim Carlo Ancelotti still sees the Icelandic playmaker as a vital part of his squad.

    Sigurdsson has slipped down the pecking order following the arrivals of James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan.

    But he will get a chance to fight for his place at Goodison Park.

    BEN NOT GONE

    West Ham remain confident of signing Said Benrahma from Brentford.

    FROM SUNSPORT’S GRAEME BRYCE

    Liverpool winger Harry Wilson will return from Wales’ Nations League tie in Bulgaria tomorrow and spend two frantic days trying to settle his short term future.

    Fierce East Midlands rivals Derby County and Nottingham Forest both want to sign the 23-year-old on loan while Welsh duo Cardiff City and Swansea City are also in the frame.

    The 18-times-capped Welsh international had hoped to tie up a permanent move to a Premier League club this summer with Leeds United or Aston Villa and Burnley all interested in the goal-scoring winger.

    However after agreeing a near £10million move to Burnley, Liverpool were surprised when Clarets boss Sean Dyche had an 11th hour change of heart and pulled out of the deal.

    NOTHING ELSE MATAS

    Juan Mata reportedly rejected a lucrative £200,000-a-week deal from Saudi Arabia to stay and fight for a place at Manchester United.

    Spanish outlet Sport reports the midfielder, 32, snubbed a big-money move to the Middle East, preferring to remain at Old Trafford for the last year of his contract.

    Mata turned down a £40,000 pay rise as the former Chelsea star reels in £160,000 a week at Old Trafford.

    The unnamed Saudi club improved on their initial rejected offer but it was not enough to tempt Mata away.

    LUCKY LEMAR

    Thomas Lemar has reportedly been given a lifeline at Atletico Madrid after they snubbed the advances of three different clubs including Wolves.

    Atletico were keen to recoup the £63.3million they paid for Lemar from Monaco in 2018 but none of the interested clubs could stump up the cash, according to AS.

    And now he is staying at the club, manager Diego Simeone is willing to give him another chance to prove himself.

    WEL I NEVER

    Former Man United and Arsenal star Danny Welbeck is wanted by Brighton.

    ALA-BYE

    Juventus are leading the race to sign David Alaba on a free transfer next summer.

    SportMediaSet claims the versatile defender will leave Bayern Munich when his contract expires.

    But the Austrian looks set to join Juve despite also being monitored by Man City and PSG.

    POG’S DINNER

    Real Madrid and Barcelona are joint-favourites to sign Paul Pogba.

    And Real and Barca are both priced at 6/4 by Ladbrokes to sign Pogba in 2021.

    Elsewhere, Juventus are listed at 7/2 to re-sign the World Cup winner.

    Paris Saint-Germain are 9/2, with Inter Milan completing the list at 10/1.

    EXCLUSIVE

    Liverpool star Harry Wilson is being offered a loan move to Swansea City to keep him in the shop window, writes Alan Nixon.

    Welsh midfielder Wilson missed out on a Premier League transfer and is facing a spell in the shadows at Anfield.

    Wilson will now have the chance to join the Swans for the rest of the year as they look for extra class in their promotion bid.

    Championship rivals have inquired since Wilson was made available to go out on a loan deal but Swansea are at the front of the queue.

    Liverpool like the way Rhian Brewster was handled by the Welsh club and returned to be sold – the same fate that would ideally await Wilson.

    THIA-NO

    Thiago Alcantara reportedly rejected a last-ditch offer from Barcelona before joining Liverpool from Bayern Munich.

    Barca made the attempt to re-sign Thiago over the summer but the midfielder already had his heart set on Anfield, according to the Guardian.

    He went on-to sign for the Reds for £20million with £5m in add-ons.

    The same report also claims that Jurgen Klopp was instrumental in Thiago moving to Merseyside.

    HAMMERS HOPEFUL

    Said Benrahma’s move to West Ham from Brentford has hit a snag – but the Premier League side are still confident of pulling off the deal.

    With just over three days left to seal the winger’s signature, the Hammers are hoping to sign the winger for £30million.

    According to talkSPORT, the deal is being held up by an issue between the clubs.

    However, West Ham are “not panicking” over the prospect of the deal falling through.

    I WANT KOU

    Manchester United have entered the race for Sevilla star Jules Kounde.

    It was Manchester City who were strongly linked to the Frenchman during the autumn window, with a bid reportedly rejected.

    But ESPN now believe the Red Devils will make a play for Kounde in January.

    PAR-DON ME?

    Thomas Partey has been given some… interesting advice from his father.

    As he moves to Arsenal, the midfielder has been told by dad Jacob to keep his eye on the football – and not chase girls.

    Jacob told My Joy Online: “My advice to him was irrespective of the big move, he has to keep training seriously and not lose focus.

    “Not chase ladies so he doesn't flop! He was very receptive of that.”

    MARC ME DOWN

    Marc-Andre ter Stegen is reportedly set to sign a new five-year contract with Barcelona this week – putting an end to speculation linking him to Bayern Munich and Juventus.

    Officials hope the new agreement will tie the goalie down long-term at the club as they look to rebuild.

    Reports say ter Stegen wanted to stay at Barca and had no intentions of moving elsewhere.

    But Sport say that the German wanted to be one of the best-paid players at the club, to reflect his high-level performances and consistent contribution to the side.

    He is also in a strong negotiating position, with other European giants reportedly interested in his signature, including PSG and Chelsea.

    HAALF A CHANCE

    More on Erling Haaland, as Real Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on the Borussia Dortmund star as well as Giovanni Reyna.

    Spanish outlet Marca claims that Los Blancos will target Norwegian Haaland if they cannot sign Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

    Manchester United have also been linked with the hotshot forward.

    THREE’S COMPANY

    Barcelona are reportedly set to revive their interest in Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum and Eric Garcia in January.

    The Blaugrana failed in their attempts to sign the trio in the summer with the club lacking funds due to being hit by the Covid-19 crisis.

    The LaLiga giants even had to slash players and staff's wages by 70 per cent after feeling the full economic impact of the deadly virus.

    As a result, Barca were unable to land their main targets – a striker in the shape of Lyon's Depay and a centre-back in the form of Manchester City's Garcia.

    The trio are all set to become free agents in 2021, and according to Mundo Deportivo, the Spanish side will look to secure their services in cut-price deals.

    VIC BOX EXERCISE
