  • PSG have set Barcelona a deadline to sign Brazilian forward Neymar
  • Man Utd could sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic & Bruno Fernandes
  • The Red Devils have offered £67million plus add-ons for the Serbian
  • Laurent Koscielny is not in Unai Emery’s plans for the new season

08:30 UPDATE: Paul Pogba swap

Juventus are considering a swap deal to bring Paul Pogba back to the club.

The French midfielder, 26, has openly discussed his desire to leave the club with Real Madrid and Juventus paying close attention.

Now, Corriere dello Sport claim the Italian champions have come up with a plan to navigate Manchester United’s £150million valuation.

It’s claimed Blaise Matuidi, Douglas Costa or Manchester City target Joao Cancelo could be used to tempt the Red Devils into selling.

08:00 UPDATE: Neymar deadline

Barcelona have been set a transfer deadline to sign Neymar.

According to French outlet CNews, PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi is concerned that talk over Neymar will disrupt their preparations for the new season.

And that PSG have set a deadline of July 31, nine days before the start of the new Ligue 1 campaign.

Should Barcelona fail to prise Neymar away from the Parc des Princes by then, he will reportedly remain with the group.

And the report adds PSG may even offer him a new contract with a vastly-improved salary to ensure he stay focused.

07:45 UPDATE: Three-player deal

Manchester United’s pursuit of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic will NOT affect their interest in Bruno Fernandes.

That’s according to La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, who claims the Red Devils could sign both before the transfer window closes in 15 days.

Italian publication Repubblica report that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are close to landing Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio as Paul Pogba’s replacement in a deal worth £67million plus add-ons.

And Schira says that won’t impact on Fernandes’ potential Old Trafford arrival.

“The arrival of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic at Manchester United (offered €80M to Lazio) would not exclude that of Bruno Fernandes. Milinkovic should replace Paul Pogba (in the sights of Real Madrid),” Schira tweeted.

07:30 UPDATE: Laurent Koscielny exit

Laurent Koscielny appears to be on his way out of Arsenal after manager Unai Emery suggested he plays no part in his plans for the new season.

The France defender opted out of the Gunners’ pre-season tour of the United States, according to Emery – who stated he will instead work with “players that want to be here”.

“I tried to continue working and finding one solution between the club, between him and us,” Emery said. “When he decided not to come here with us on tour, the solution is now only for the club and him.

“He decided to be out. I respect him but I have a responsibility, he has a responsibility, and the club have their responsibility.

“Now it’s an issue only for the club and him. My idea is to continue with the players we are working with, and the players that want to be here.”
