The article focuses on the latest transfer rumours across major football leagues
Wayne Rooney to Derby County
England legend Wayne Rooney, who currently plays for DC United in the MLS, is in talks with Derby County over a move. The 33-year-old will make a move as a manager player to the Championship Club. Rooney had previously expressed his wish to go into management after retiring.
The former Manchester United forward, who has always been all praises for Louis Van Gaal’s style of play, will look to link with Derby’s new Dutch manager Phillip Cocu. In a post-match interview, Cocu said he can’t say anything about the names before a deal is done.
Paul Pogba to Real Madrid C.F/ Juventus
Real Madrid are still looking to cash out on Paul Pogba, but Manchester United value him at more than £150 million. If United possibly sign Sergej Milenkovic- Savic from Lazio they may look to offload Pogba, who has already handed a transfer request to the club. The club are also looking forward to the signing of Mario Lemina from Southampton, who has told the club his wish to leave. Juventus have also shown some interest in signing the midfielder, and they may offer player+cash for him.
Mario Mandzukic to Manchester United
After the deal for Paulo Dybala stalled due to his hefty wage demands and a third party payment for image rights, United are looking to sign Mario Mandzukic. The 33-year-old striker will cost the reds around £15m or will be included in a swap deal with Romelu Lukaku.
Mandzukic will be of benefit to the English club, with his goal-scoring abilities and great heading. He is a big threat in the opposition box and will be a good support to the pacey wingers at United.
Joao Cancelo to Manchester City
Manchester City are in talks with Juventus over a swap deal for Joao Cancelo with Danilo+ £30 million cash. Cancelo is willing for a move abroad and Danilo has struggled for playing time in his 3 years at Manchester City. The Portuguese right-back, Cancelo has shown his abilities in attacking and defending for the Old Lady and is considered one of the best in his position currently.
Donny van de Beek to Real Madrid C.F
If Real Madrid fail to land Paul Pogba this summer, they have made their interests sure in Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek. The Ajax youngster had impressed last season in the double-winning team. De Beek has confirmed Real’s approach for him, tempting the youngster. Ajax would only sell him for £60 million. The transfer if completed will see Real’s transfer spree to extend to more than £350 million this season.
