Goal takes a look at the biggest transfer news and rumours from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond


Juve want Pogba back if Pjanic leaves


Juventus will explore a deal to re-sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United, if they sell Miralem Pjanic this summer, according to Tuttosport.

Pjanic has been linked with a move to Barcelona and Manchester City, but is currently keen to stay with Juventus following the club’s stunning capture of Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, should a ‘crazy’ offer arrive for Pjanic, then Juve will consider cashing in on the Bosnian before looking to use the money to fund an ambitious bid to bring Pogba back to the club.


Liverpool given Cillessen price tag


Liverpool must pay at least £25 million ($33m) for Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, according to Sport.

The Reds are in the market for a new goalkeeper with both Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet unimpressive last season at Anfield, with the Netherlands international seen as a more reliable option between the sticks.

Cillessen is back-up to Marc-Andre ter Stegen at Camp Nou, but will cost £25m to bring to the Premier League.


Everton consider £50m Zaha move


Everton are considering a £50 million ($65m) move for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha.

The move would mark the Toffees' record transfer, and surpass the £45m ($51m) move for Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Zaha scored nine times last season, his highest tally as a professional.

Liverpool make £18m Vida bid


Liverpool have made an £18 million ($24m) offer for Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida, according to Fanatik.

The centre-back has excelled for Croatia at the World Cup, helping them reach their first ever World Cup final and could move to a bigger club once the tournament ends.

However, the Turkish Super Lig side are looking for £31m for the 29-year-old, whose value has greatly increased during the tournament.


James Rodriguez wants Madrid return


James Rodriguez is keen to go back to Real Madrid once his loan spell with Bayern comes to an end, according to Marca.

The Colombian has been on loan with the Bavarian giants over the last year and, under the terms of the agreement, is obligated to spend another campaign with Bayern.

But the 27-year-old is now hoping to come back in 2019, with new manager Julen Lopetegui apparently of the opinion that James has plenty to offer Madrid.


Real and Spurs target Quintero has €25m price tag


Colombia World Cup star Juan Fernando Quintero will cost Europe's top sides €25 million (£22m/$29m) if they want to prize him away from River Plate, according to the Argentinian club's president Rodolfo D'Onofrio.

The Porto midfielder signed a one-year loan deal with River in January with a buyout clause that D'Onofrio indicated he would exercise following Quintero's outstanding performances in Russia.

But Quintero's displays at the World Cup earned him the admiration of European scouts, with Real Madrid rumoured to be interested in taking him to La Liga, while Tottenham are said to be tracking him.

Madrid prepare £150m Hazard bid


Real Madrid are preparing a bid of £150 million ($198m) for Chelsea star Eden Hazard, reports the Daily Mail.

The Blancos are in the market for a big-name replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who officially joined Juventus this week.

And the club believe they can lure the 27-year-old, who has yet to pen fresh terms at Stamford Bridge.


Real Madrid open Neymar talks


Real Madrid representative Juni Calafat has held talks with Neymar's father over possibly luring the Paris Saint-Germain attacker to the Bernabeu, according to Globoesporte

Neymar does not have a release clause in his PSG deal, which runs until 2022, so it would be difficult for Madrid to take him away from the Ligue 1 champions.

He broke the world transfer record by moving to Paris for €222m (£200m/$259m) from Barcelona last year but is unlikely to be on the move again this summer.


'Man Utd-linked Maguire deserves big club'


Riyad Mahrez has backed England’s Harry Maguire to one day play for a top club, saying it would give him the recognition that he “deserves”.

Maguire was one of the Three Lions’ stars as they unexpectedly reached the semi-finals of the World Cup, where they eventually came unstuck 2-1 against Croatia in extra-time.

Nevertheless, his performances have reportedly been enough to attract interest from Manchester United, and Mahrez, who was a club-mate of Maguire's at Leicester until he moved to Manchester City earlier this week, believes he would be able to shine at Old Trafford.

Emery open to one more 'big' signing


Arsenal are open to signing one more player if a "big opportunity" presents itself, according to manager Unai Emery.

The Gunners have already secured the signings of Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Matteo Guendouzi and Stephan Lichtsteiner this summer, with Emery looking to reshape the squad in his own image.

Indeed, the likes of Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla have been moved on and Emery says that, while he is happy with the club's business, he would be willing to add another player to the squad.

Man Utd in advanced Bale talks


Manchester United are in advanced talks to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid, reports the Manchester Evening News.

Jose Mourinho has prioritised signing the Welshman, who complained of a lack of playing time following Madrid's Champions League triumph in May. 

Bale is set for discussions with new Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui over his role for next season.


Barca make second bid for Willian


Barcelona have made a second bid for Chelsea winger Willian, believed to be worth up to £53 million ($70m), Sky Sports News   reports. 

The Liga champions have been looking to lure the Brazilian to Camp Nou for three months and made an initial bid of £50m ($65.8m) last week. 

Manchester United are also interested in signing the 29-year-old. 


PSG make Kante their top priority


Paris Saint-Germain have made contact with Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante over a summer move, RMC reports.

After Thiago Motta retired in the summer, PSG will make efforts to add to their ranks in midfield and see the France international as a leading candidate.

There are, however, numerous clubs monitoring Kante's situation.

Meanwhile, PSG will offload Goncalo Guedes, Jese and Grzegorz Krychowiak, but may offer Angel Di Maria a new deal.


Real Madrid hunt new centre forward


New Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui is aiming to bolster his attacking options by signing Rodrigo from Valencia, according to Cadena Ser .

The 27-year-old scored 16 times in La Liga last season, but his club have no intention of allowing him to leave easily.

Los Blancos are already seeking a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved to Juventus earlier this week.


Man Utd prepare huge Maguire offer


Manchester United are preparing a huge offer for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire, according to the Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old starred for England at the World Cup, seeing his stock rise even higher after a stellar first season with the Foxes. 

United will have to pay as much as £50 million ($66m) to convince Leicester to part with their prized asset. 


Rabiot wants to leave PSG


Barcelona target Adrien Rabiot has told Paris Saint-Germain he wants to leave the club, according to  RMC Sport.

Reports in the Spanish media claim that the 23-year-old midfielder has already agreed to a contract with Barca, which would double his current wages.

PSG want to keep Rabiot, but with a year left on his current contract, they may be forced to sell if the price is right. 


PSG & Chelsea in for Bonucci


Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are both interested in signing AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci, reports Corriere dello Sport.

The 31-year-old only arrived in Milan last summer, but financial difficulties may force the Serie A club to sell quickly. 

Manchester United are also reported to be keen on the Italy international. 


Spurs open to selling Alderweireld


Tottenham are open to the idea of selling Toby Alderweireld to Manchester United, according to Yahoo Sport UK. 

United have been looking to purchase the 29-year-old this summer after he fell out of favour with Spurs last season. 

Though Tottenham have rebuffed Jose Mourinho's side thus far, they have offered their Premier League rivals encouragement that a deal can be done. 


West Ham near £47m Anderson deal


West Ham are closing in on a club-record move for Lazio winger Felipe Anderson, according to The Sun.

The Hammers have been chasing the 25-year-old for weeks, and have reached a breakthrough with a bid of £41 million plus £6m in add-ons ($62m).

The deal would make Anderson West Ham's record signing, more than doubling the fee the club paid for Issa Diop last month. 


Everton target Digne & Mina


Everton are looking to sign Barcelona defensive pair Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne, reports The Telegraph.

Goal reported on Tuesday that  Everton were nearing a €24 million (£21m/$28m) move for Mina , who only arrived at Barca in January. 

Digne arrived at Barcelona from PSG in 2016, but the left-back has been unable to lock down a starting position in his time at the club. 


Fulham & Wolves to battle for Zinchenko


Newly-promoted duo Fulham and Wolves are set for a bidding war over Manchester City's Oleksandr Zinchenko, according to The Telegraph.  

The 21-year-old featured at left-back for City last season and can also play further up the field at left midfield.

Zinchenko is rated at £16 million ($21m), but a bidding war could drive his price up much higher. 


Ajax aim to sign Blind by Monday


Ajax are hoping to complete a deal for Daley Blind before Manchester United leave for their US tour on Monday, according to the Daily Mail.

Blind, 28, has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and his former club are hoping to bring him back. 

Ajax, though, are unwilling to pay the £15 million ($20m) United are asking, with the Dutch side looking to negotiate the fee down. 


Rooney: Everton wanted me to leave


Wayne Rooney has revealed that Everton "made it clear" that they wanted him to depart the club. 

Rooney completed a move to D.C. United last month, and is set to make his debut for the MLS side on Saturday. 

The 32-year-old made his Toffees return last summer, after a record-breaking career at Manchester United.
