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


Man Utd to get Varane in three-way Neymar deal


Manchester United could be set to benefit from Real Madrid's pursuit of Neymar as it could give the English side the chance to sign Raphael Varane, Don Balon says.

The European champions are not giving up in their desire to sign the Brazilian from Paris Saint-Germain and their attempts to sign him could spark a triangle of moves among three top sides.

United have long been linked with Varane and will try to sign him this summer, and a big offer will only help boost Madrid's offensive to land Neymar.

PSG are said to be hoping to lure Marcos Rojo from Old Trafford, however, while Madrid would target Leonardo Bonucci to restore their defence.

Bale has options in the Premier League, with Manchester United and his former team Tottenham Hotspur interested, while Benzema is considering an offer from China and a return to France.
