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

Man Utd make Ronaldo offer

Manchester United have made an offer to Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Diario Gol

The report states Ronaldo is frustrated with Real president Florentino Perez, who has refused to sanction a new contract for the 33-year-old. 

And the Red Devils are hoping to take advantage by offering their former player a staggering €30 million per year to return to Old Trafford. 

Madrid enter Umtiti saga

Samuel Umtiti, Barcelona, 17/18

Real Madrid have joined Manchester United in the pursuit of Barcelona's Samuel Umtiti, Diario Gol reports.

The article claims that until recently Umtiti was angling for a reasonable wage increase at Camp Nou, but an offer of €9 million per season from Man Utd had caused him to ask for the same from Barca.

Barca's purse strings are tight for now, however, having spent big on Coutinho, and Madrid president Florentino Perez is seemingly willing and ready to capitalise on Umtiti's precarious situation with Real's Clasico rivals.

The France centre-back has a release clause of €60m.

Mourinho set for make-up talks with players

Luke Shaw Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is expected to have clear-the-air talks with Manchester United players this week after having publicly called out a number of players for lacklustre performance, The Sun claims.

Dembele offered Arsenal exit route

Ousmane Dembele Barcelona

The potential arrival of Antoine Griezmann at Barcelona could see Ousmane Dembele's future at the club brought into doubt - and Arsenal are waiting to pounce, according to Don Balon.

The 20-year-old is still finding his feet in La Liga and the arrival of Griezmann would surely see Dembele dropped to the bench in favour of his more experienced countryman, while Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez would likely to retain their places in the starting XI.

The report claims Arsenal are offering the young forward a way out of Camp Nou but would only offer €60 million, a meagre sum that could, after variables, amount to a mere half of what Barca paid Dortmund in 2017.

Liverpool & Roma to battle for Ceballos

Despite the player's recent assertion that he will continue to fight for a place in Real Madrid's starting line-up, Dani Ceballos is a summer transfer target for both Liverpool and Roma, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Roma, meanwhile, are long-term admirers of the former Betis player, with sporting director Monchi seemingly willing to push Liverpool to the wire in order to land his preferred target.

Milinkovic-Savic worth over €90m

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic Lazio

Lazio director Igli Tare did not want to put a price on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, but he did say the in-demand midfielder is worth more than €90million.

Milinkovic-Savic has been linked with Premier League giants Manchester United and European champions Real Madrid, while Ligue 1 powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in the 23-year-old.

Tare told Sportitalia: "I don't know how much he could be worth and I don't even want to think about it.

"It's certainly a figure well over €80-90m, in any case. Sergej is very important to us and has not yet reached his peak. There are always more players who can be found and developed.
