Transfer news LIVE: Cristiano Ronaldo offered to PSG, Harry Kane lined up as Lewandowski Bayern Munich replacement | The Sun

CRISTIANO RONALDO is reportedly impressed in which the way Man Utd chief Richard Arnold is handling his transfer request.

The Portuguese star wants to leave this summer, but United are reluctant to sell him.

And agent Jorge Mendes is said to have offered the Red Devils ace to Paris Saint-Germain.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich to replace Roberto Lewandowski.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has shut down the possibility of a deal this summer.

However, Bayern legend Lothar Matthaus says the England captain will come into the club's thinking next summer.

Elsewhere, Barcelona are on the verge of agreeing a new contract for Ousmane Dembele, who was linked with Chelsea.

But that isn't set to stop them signing Blues target Raphinha, with a deal reported to be imminent.

    Aberdeen ace joins Bologna

    Bologna have confirmed the signing of Aberdeen ace Lewis Ferguson.

    The Scotland midfielder has cost the Serie A side a total of £3m.

    And he was given a warm send-off by Dons boss Jim Goodwin who said: "“We want to be a Club that is an attractive option for young players who know they can come here, get important game time, train in excellent facilities, and have opportunities to further their development.

    “ Lewis has been a fantastic player for Aberdeen. He became an integral part of the dressing room in recent seasons, and he has earned the right to explore other options.

    "The club has helped his development massively. He’s played an impressive number of first team games for his age, not only domestically but in Europe as well, and recently made his debut for his country."

    Bayern Munich's wantaway star Robert Lewandowski has returned to Germany without his family after receiving DEATH THREATS amid the ongoing Barcelona transfer saga.

    According to WP SportoweFakty, the star striker returned to Munich from his summer break alone today after recent death threats he received on social media amid the ongoing drama.

    The Poland international's wife Anna and his children stayed behind as he came back for some annual medical tests, which are routine for every Bayern player before pre-season.

    There were reports suggesting the 33-year-old would strike to force a move away from the Allianz Arena.

    However, the Polish superstar proved that is not the case and actually never considered that option.

    Toon Army eyeing up Isak

    Mega-rich Newcastle United are preparing to flex their wallet in the transfer market by making a club record bid for Real Sociedad forward Alexander Isak.

    The news come courtesy of Luke Edwards at The Telegraph and, while no fee is mentioned, it is understood that it would eclipse the £40m the club paid for Joelinton in 2019.

    Isak was heavily linked with Arsenal in January, but turned down the chance to move to the Premier League.

    Should the 22-year-old Swedish international opt for St James' Park, he would join Bruno Guimaraes in favouring the Toon over the Gunners.

    Napoli to swoop for Seagull

    It looks as though it's a case of one centre-back out, one centre-back in at Napoli.

    With Kalidou Koulibaly set to join Chelsea for €40m, the Serie A club may have sourced a readymade replacement in young Brighton defender Leo Skiri Ostigard.

    The 22-year-old Norwegian joined the Seagulls in 2018, but has yet to make a senior appearance for the south coast club; he has instead spent time away on loan at St Pauli, Coventry, Stoke and Genoa.

    It's understood that Napoli officials were impressed by Ostigard's time in Serie A, and have submitted a bid to Brighton in the region of €3m – €4m.

    Hendrick's gone! Jeff leaves on loan

    Eddie Howe has begun clearing out the deadwood at Newcastle by allowing Jeff Hendrick to go out on loan to Reading for the season.

    The Republic of Ireland midfielder heads back to the Championship, having spent the second half of last season with QPR.

    The 30-year-old joined the Toon Army in 2020 on a free transfer from Burnley, but has only made 27 appearances during his time at St James' Park.

    Koul runnings! Blues win Kalidou race

    Chelsea are on the verge of completing the signing of Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, according to journalist Fabrice Hawkins.

    The Blues have reportedly had a €40m bid for the Senegal captain accepted, and have also agreed terms on a three-year deal.

    The 31-year-old will move to London after eight years in Naples, in which he made more than 300 appearances for the Serie A club.

    Blues set price for Cesar

    Captain Cesar Azpilicueta has told Chelsea that he wants to join Barcelona – but a move won’t be sanctioned yet unless the Catalans cough up £7m.

    The Spaniard has already agreed personal terms on a two-year deal with Barca, having first been courted by the LaLiga giants months ago.

    However, Azpilicueta’s contract with the Blues – originally due to end this summer – had a one-year extension automatically triggered, ensuring the Londoners could demand a transfer fee.

    It’s likely that Chelsea will relent on that asking price, but not before Thomas Tuchel has brought in defensive reinforcements of his own.

    Meanwhile, Marcos Alonso is keen to join his skipper in swapping Stamford Bridge for the Nou Camp.

    Eriks-in and off to Oz

    Christian Eriksen will sign for Manchester United this week – and then immediately fly to Australia to join his new teammates on tour.

    That's according to The Athletic, who report that the 'final details' of the midfielder's move are currently being agreed upon.

    The Danish international will become the Red Devils' second summer signing, joining Tyrell Malacia as one of the new faces in Erik ten Hag's squad.

    Barca 'unwilling' to match Leeds valuation

    Another day, another transfer held up by Barcelona's curious financial situation.

    The signing of Raphinha from Leeds United looked a formality yesterday, but Mundo Deportivo now claim that the Catalans are unwilling to pay the €72m asking price set by the Yorkshire club.

    However, the LaLiga giants are prepared to offer in the region of €50m, and they remain confident that Leeds will accept.

    The Brazilian favours a move to the Nou Camp, having previously been linked with Chelsea and Arsenal earlier in the window.

    Are Arsenal closing on Kante?

    The rumours linking Arsenal with a swoop for Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante are refusing to go away, and reports in Spain now suggest that a deal could be done in the coming days.

    Todo Fichajes claim the Gunners are ready to lodge a £17m offer for the Frenchman, who has just one year remaining on his Stamford Bridge contract.

    While the Blues would prefer to keep Kante, at 31 years of age he isn’t considered a priority for a new deal – and that could tempt them to cash in.

    The tireless midfielder has won the Premier League with both Leicester and Chelsea, and Arsenal fans will be hoping his arrival would prompt a similar title challenge.

    Heads, United win with Sasa

    Manchester United appear to be using their heads in the transfer market – and will soon hope that their new recruit can use his.

    Austrian striker Sasa Kalajdzic has held talks with Old Trafford officials, and could be set for an imminent move to the Premier League giants from Stuttgart.

    At six foot seven inches, Kalajdzic has proved himself a handful for most Bundesliga defences, and has scored more headed goals over the past two seasons than any other player in Germany.

    Justin time? Hammers court Kluivert

    After failing in their efforts to sign Arnaut Danjuma, West Ham have turned their attention to Roma's Justin Kluivert.

    Kluivert – the 23-year-old son of former Dutch striker Patrick – has one year remaining on his contract at the Stadio Olimpico, and Jose Mourinho is ready to cash in.

    After bursting on to the scene at Ajax in 2017, the forward's career has stagnated since moving to the Italian capital four years ago.

    He has spent the past two seasons out on loan but did impress in Ligue 1 with Nice last term, netting six goals and providing six assists in 31 appearances.

    Manchester City midfielder Rodri has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the Premier League champions until 2027.

    The Spanish international joined City in 2019, and has gone on to make 151 appearances for the club.

    He said: "“Joining City is the best decision I have made in my career. I have loved every second. The fans have been amazing with me, I feel totally supported by the Club and the manager pushes me every single day."

    Blues agree deal for Slonina

    Chelsea are understood to have reached a verbal agreement to sign goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina from Chicago Fire.

    Fabrizio Romano tweeted that a £10m deal had been agreed upon after new Blues owner Todd Boehly met with the MLS club himself.

    The 18-year-old stopper will remain at Chicago on loan as part of the transfer, and is considered one for the future.

    Wolves and Real Madrid had been linked with the USA U20 international, but Boehly’s involvement appears to have been key to Chelsea winning the race.

    Cheeri-Joe? Fulham in for Rodon

    Newly-promoted Fulham have contacted Tottenham about the possibility of signing centre-back Joe Rodon.

    The Wales international is considered surplus to requirements in North London despite impressing for his country.

    The 24-year-old joined Spurs two years ago from Swansea, but has failed to win over Antonio Conte – despite the Italian's preference for three central defenders.

    Nottingham Forest have also been linked with a move for Rodon, who has three years remaining on his current Tottenham deal.

    De Jong saga rumbles on

    Here we go again.

    Manchester United’s pursuit of Frenkie de Jong shows no sign of reaching a conclusion.

    It is widely accepted that Barcelona need to sell the Dutchman in order to balance the books.

    However, the latest report from Mundo Deportivo suggests that Barca will reject United’s current offer for the midfielder as they see it as ‘insufficient’.

    Yesterday it was suggested that the Red Devils are ready to consider alternative to De Jong with both Youri Tielemans and Ruben Neves rumoured.

    Gabriel 'top target' for Juve

    Juventus will make Arsenal defender Gabriel their top target if Bayern Munich are successful in landing Matthijs de Ligt, report Sky Sports Italia.

    The Old Lady are said to be resigned to losing De Ligt this summer, but will move swiftly to sign his replacement.

    And it's Gabriel that has been identified as the ideal candidate – and the Gunners could be willing to do business.

    The return of William Saliba to the Emirates has strengthened the suggestion that Gabriel could depart, particularly as the young Frenchman appears key to Mikel Arteta's first team plans.

    Wolves to sign 'most expensive' Irishman

    Burnley's Nathan Collins will become the most expensive Irish footballer of all time when he completes a £24m move to Wolverhampton Wanderers this week.

    The Irish Independent note that the deal will eclipse the £23m that Liverpool paid Tottenham for Robbie Keane in 2008.

    Collins' stock is high after he impressed towards the end of last season despite the Clarets relegation from the Premier League.

    The centre-back also scored a stunning solo goal for his country against Ukraine last month.

    The deal will land Burnley almost £10m in profit, a year after they brought the 21-year-old in from Stoke.

    Tuchel wants new 'unpredictable' forward

    Chelsea are moving closer to completing the signing of Raheem Sterling, but Thomas Tuchel isn't done there.

    According to a report in The Guardian, the Blues boss wants to bring in 'an unpredictable, clinical wide player' that is capable of playing in a variety of positions along the front line.

    A move for Ousmane Dembele has failed to materialise with the Frenchman now prepared to commit his future to Barcelona.

    However, Bayern Munich's Serge Gnabry and AC Milan's Rafael Leao are real possibilities.

    Gnabry, in particular, is open to a return to the Premier League, and with only a year left on his contract, would be available at a knockdown price.

    United ‘confident’ of Martinez deal

    Manchester United WILL land Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.

    The transfers expert understands that the Dutch club are now prepared to discuss a fee with the Red Devils, having previously rejected their opening bid.

    United reportedly returned with a second offer of €45m for the Argentine, who has made it clear that he wishes to play in the Premier League..

    Romano tweeted: “Manchester United are now feeling confident on Lisandro Martínez deal.

    “Ajax are open to discuss on the fee, new contacts expected very soon after bid rejected last week.”
