The Athletic reports that Chelsea are preparing to step up their interest in Cristiano Ronaldo following the revelation that the Portuguese superstar is looking for a way out of Manchester United.

The Red Devils have no desire to discuss a deal with anybody present, and certainly not a domestic rival, but an all-time great could be edging his way towards the exits at Old Trafford.

Milan in talks to sign Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa

2022-07-04T13:00:00.000Z

Milan are in talks to sign Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz, GOAL can confirm, with the Premier League club set to negotiate on their reported €30 million (£26m/$31m) asking price.

Luiz has spent the last three years of his career at Villa, having initially been brought in from Manchester City in July 2019.

The Brazilian has established himself as a key member of the first-team squad at Villa Park, but he only has one year left on his contract and the summer window represents the club's last chance to cash in.

According to De Telegraaf, Ajax and Tottenham have reached an agreement for the transfer of Steven Bergwijn, in a deal worth around €30 million (£25m).

The 24-year-old was signed by Jose Mourinho from PSV in the January transfer window of 2020, but has seen himself fall down the pecking order under new manager Antonio Conte, who has consistently selected Dejan Kulusevski over him.

Man Utd meet Ajax representatives for Martinez

2022-07-04T11:00:00.000Z

Manchester United have stepped up their pursuit of Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez after meeting with the Dutch club's new director of football, according to the Mirror.

Former Holland striker Klass-Jan Huntelaar (now the director of football at Ajax) travelled to London on Saturday to negotiate the terms of a deal with Man Utd officials, and the Reds believe they are leading the race to sign the Argentine, ahead of Arsenal.

Ajax value the 24-year-old at £43 million, with Man Utd bidding £39.6 million, a higher bid than Arsenal but still insufficient to meet the Dutch champions' demands.

Everton 'last resort' for Lingard (The Sun)

2022-07-03T22:15:00.000Z

A move to Everton would only be a 'last resort' for Jesse Lingard following his exit from Manchester United, says The Sun.

The England international is available on a free transfer this summer as he looks to find both first team football and a potential pathway back into Gareth Southgate's plans for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Frank Lampard's Toffees had been a suitor for his services - but Lingard would reportedly rather see if he can find a move elsewhere over Goodison Park.
