Transfer Talk: Manchester United’s Alexis Sanchez eyeing PSG switch

FC’s Paul Mariner provides his thoughts on transfer rumours surrounding Mauro Icardi, Adam Lallana, Keylor Navas and more in Transfer Rater.

With the winter window opening soon, the rumour mill is beginning to gather pace. Who will be moving where come January? Transfer Talk has the latest.

TOP STORY: ‘Isolated’ Sanchez wants PSG switch

As speculation continues to surround the future of Alexis Sanchez, the Mirror reports that he is “eyeing a move to Paris Saint-Germain.” It says Chile international Sanchez “wants out of United” after less than a year at the club, citing reports last week that he was “isolated” at Old Trafford.

Both parties “might now look to secure a move in January,” with former Arsenal player Sanchez reported to be speaking to only three other members of Jose Mourinho’s squad. PSG could offer the 29-year-old a new start, with the French champions among a handful of clubs able to match his wages.

Meanwhile, the Sun suggests that Mourinho “could be in favour of a move after he reportedly admitted that he would have preferred to sign Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic last winter.”


23.05 BST: That brings Monday’s live edition of Transfer Talk to a close. Thanks very much for joining us, and be sure to check back in a few short hours when we return with the latest gossip pulled from Tuesday’s back pages.

22.32 BST: The Star cites El Pais as reporting that Tottenham are interested in activating the £44.5m release clause for Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez, a 22-year-old who’s scored six goals in 10 appearances this season.

21.16 BST: The Mirror reports that Samir Nasri has undergone a medical and agreed a heavily incentivised contract with West Ham, but the deal may yet fall through as the Hammers are concerned the 31-year-old is so out of shape that he may not be fit to play when his doping ban expires in January.

18.48 BST: In addition to Ashley Young, the Guardian is reporting that Antonio Valencia is also in discussions to extend his stay at Manchester United, with his contract set to expire this summer.

17.32 BST: Manchester City are set to open talks with 18-year-old midfielder Sandro Tonalo of Serie B side Brescia, according to Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira, with the club demanding €25m for a player also attracting interest from Inter, Juventus, AC Milan, Napoli, Roma, Chelsea and Monaco.

16.16 GMT: Manchester United right-back Ashley Young is in talks with the club over a new contract, say the BBC. The 33-year-old has converted from a winger to a full-back since joining in 2011 and his contract runs out this summer, but is reportedly keen to stay.

15.55 GMT: Turkish newspaper Takvim report that Fenerbahce are targeting a move for Crystal Palace defender Jairo Riedewald in January. There’s a Dutch presence at the club, with Erwin Koeman in temporary charge after the exit of Phillip Cocu, so that might explain it.

15.31 GMT: Athletic Bilbao, Roma and Atletico Madrid are just some of the club chasing Manchester United’s Ander Herrera, with the midfielder available on a free transfer next summer, say AS.

14.40 GMT: Arsenal are reportedly very interested in Ramires (not that one) but Bahia vice-president Vitor Ferraz says they are still awaiting bids.

 “In contractual terms, the athlete is well protected and our job is to guide him and make him worry about playing football,” He told Radio Metropole.

13.50 GMT: Bayern president Uli Hoeness said the club would “significantly change the face of the squad” next summer.

Speaking to Sky on Sunday, he also ruled out any winter transfers, saying: “This would just lead to journalists not talking to those who scored two goals but to those who sit in the stands.”

12.58 GMT: Manuel Pellegrini is keen to give Samir Nasri another shot after he finishes serving an 18-month ban for receiving an intravenous treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in December 2016. The midfielder is having a medical at West Ham according to Sky Sports, and should be available to play at the end of December.

11.56 GMT: Real Madrid have filed the papers to appoint Santi Solari as permanent first team coach, the Spanish FA (RFEF) has told ESPN.

The club are now expected to confirm that the 42-year-old, who has won all four of his games in caretaker charge, as first team boss until the end of the season at least.

11.41 GMT: San Jose Earthquakes defender Nick Lima is headed to Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin for a training stint, a source with direct knowledge of the situation has told ESPN.

11.26 GMT: Eden Hazard is happy at Chelsea. Despite the fact he “dreams” about moving to Real Madrid. He is happy. OK? OK????

“For the last seven years with Chelsea, I have always enjoyed myself,” he told TalkSPORT. “When I am on the pitch I try to give happiness, first to me and then to the fans who are watching the game. At the moment, we are doing well and that’s why I am doing well. So I am happy to play at the moment.”

Ok, he’s not happy. But that’s about something else.

10.51 GMT: Calciomercato say that Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini caught the eye of Manchester United during the summer. Does that mean they are going to go back for the 22-year-old midfielder this January though? We’ll have to wait and see.

10.02 GMT: TEAMTalk say that Bundesliga side RB Leipzig are ready to offer a pre-contract to Wigan’s Nick Powell in January. The former Manchester United midfielder has also been linked with Celtic, Brighton and Burnley and can leave for free this summer.

09.22 GMT: Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet isn’t getting much of a game in England these days and could be set to move to Patrick Vieira’s Nice, so claim the Daily Mirror.

09.00 GMT: Good morning, and where better to start than with the news that Brazil legend Dani Alves might be bringing his unique personality to the Premier League. The PSG defender told the Daily Telegraph “it is not possible” he will end his career without playing in England. Hooray!


Roma face Ramsey battle after swap deal declined

Roma’s decision to not let forward Patrik Schick join Arsenal in a swap for Aaron Ramsey leaves them facing strong competition for the Wales midfielder, says the Mirror.

Reports suggested the Gunners could allow Ramsey to go to Rome with Schick coming the other way following Danny Welbeck’s ankle injury.

But Roma sporting director Monchi has said that deal will not happen — and now the Serie A side will be up against a number of clubs for Ramsey’s signature.

The 27-year-old, who will leave Arsenal when his contract runs out in the summer, has been linked with Liverpool, Manchester United and Italian champions Juventus.

And the Mirror reports that both Chelsea and AC Milan have joined that trio as potential destinations.

Porto star to spark Premier League scramble

A three-club chase for Porto midfielder Yacine Brahimi is in the offing, according to the Sun, which says Everton, Newcastle and West Ham are interested.

Brahimi, who is nearing the end of his contract, will be able to speak to overseas sides about a move from the start of next year.

The Sun says “his red-hot form could see a huge battle emerge,” but Everton manager Marco Silva could be a key factor in winning that battle.

Former Sporting Lisbon coach Silva “knows all about Brahimi’s qualities, meaning the midfielder could slot straight into his side without having to make any real adjustments to his game.”


– Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez is after a winger and a striker, with the Chronicle reporting that “the club’s network of scouts are clocking up the air miles in order to whittle down their shortlist.”

It says scouts have watched matches in Belgium, France, Spain and the Netherlands in the search for a wide player after a summer attempt to sign Bournemouth’s Junior Stanislas came to nothing.

– Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts is set to cut short his loan spell with Spanish side Girona and head back to City, according to the Sun.

Roberts, 21, has made only three starts for Girona and the England under-20 international could move to PSV Eindhoven, who had previously been interested in him, for the rest of the campaign.

Ghana confirm Kwadwo Asamoah absence vs. Ethiopia

Ghana have confirmed that Kwadwo Asamoah will not join the Black Stars for their upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia after picking up a knee injury.

The utility man was named in Kwesi Appiah’s squad for Sunday’s qualifier against the Walias in Addis Ababa, but misses out after picking up an injury at the weekend.

The 29-year-old was hurt during Inter’s 4-1 defeat by Atalanta in Serie A on Sunday.

“Kwadwo Asamoah has been ruled out of the Ghana versus Ethiopia game due to recurrent knee injury,” the Ghana FA statement began.

“The Inter midfielder suffered a swollen knee after their defeat away to Atalanta over the weekend.”

Asamoah has made 10 Serie A appearances for the Nerazzurri so far this term after moving from Juventus on a free transfer during the summer, following six successful years in Turin.

“Asamoah would not be available for Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia in Addis Ababa,” the statement continued.

“According to officials of Inter, Asamoah’s condition has been intermittent and there is the need to seek urgent medical attention.”

The former Udinese man’s international career has been punctured by injury, and Asamoah only returned to the Ghana fold in September after four years of self-imposed exile from the Black Stars camp.

Appiah has opted not to name a replacement.

After two matches, Ghana find themselves third in AFCON qualifying Group F, having taken three points so far, although they’ve played two games fewer than leaders Kenya and second-placed Ethiopia.

Their October double-header against Sierra Leone was cancelled due to the latter’s suspension by FIFA after government interference to deal with alleged corruption in the SLFA.

Transfer Talk: Maurizio Sarri trying to persuade Nabil Fekir to join Chelsea over Real Madrid

Paul Mariner assesses the latest transfer rumours, including the chances Alexis Sanchez, Robert Lewandowski and Patrik Schick make moves in January.

With the winter window opening soon, the rumour mill is beginning to gather pace. Who will be moving where come January? Transfer Talk has the latest.

Sarri intervenes as Chelsea chase Fekir

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri wants Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir at Stamford Bridge and has spoken to him about a move, the Sun says.

Fekir had been on the brink of joining Liverpool before the World Cup, but the transfer stalled and talks failed to resume.

The France international has since been linked with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Chelsea — and the Sun, citing reports, says Sarri has tried to seize the initiative.

It says he has told Fekir he “would play a key role,” but competition for his signature will be intense, with Madrid and Bayern reported to have had him watched recently.

Lyon’s Nabil Fekir is attracting interest from the likes of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

United and Sanchez ‘stuck with each other’

There could be plenty of changes at Manchester United in January — but the departure of Alexis Sanchez will not be one of them, says the Telegraph.

Recent reports suggested Sanchez was hopeful that Paris Saint-Germain could move for him, claiming the former Arsenal player felt “isolated.”

But the Telegraph says United and Sanchez “fear they are stuck with each other” amid “growing concerns that his signing was a costly mistake.”

It adds that the club “have seen next to nothing for their huge investment” but his struggles on the pitch and the cost that would be involved in signing him have put off other clubs.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho continues to target a new central defender, with Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar and Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld remaining high on his list.

That may spell the end of the United road for Eric Bailly, although the Telegraph says it is unclear whether the Old Trafford hierarchy would agree to his sale, while Marcos Rojo could also go.

Nasri West Ham move could be in doubt

It had seemed all but certain that Samir Nasri would be reunited with his former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham — but that may not be the case, according to the Mirror.

It reports that Nasri’s switch “is in danger of collapse amid concerns over his lack of fitness” after reports said he would sign an £80,000-a-week deal until the end of the season.

There are fears the 31-year-old midfielder “may not be ready to play by the start of January, when his ban for doping expires,” and that has left West Ham uncertain about bringing him in.

The Mirror adds that a final decision is set to be made this week, but says the deal “is in the balance when it had looked on course.”


– Newcastle “are in the box seat” to sign striker Salomon Rondon permanently when his loan from West Brom expires at the end of the season, the Chronicle reports.

Venezuela international Rondon scored twice as Newcastle beat Bournemouth, and the Chronicle says he is eager to extend his stay at St James’ Park.

– Fenerbahce want to bring in Crystal Palace defender Jairo Riedewald, Football London, citing reports in Turkey, says.

Riedewald, who has not played for Palace in the Premier League this season, had been linked Swansea but Fener are now favourites.
