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

Man United target Neymar deal

Manchester United are hoping to jump ahead of Real Madrid in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, according to the Mirror .

The Brazilian had a successful first year in Paris cut short due to a foot injury, and reports have linked him with a move back to La Liga to join Los Blancos.

However, United are prepared to offer £200 million ($270m/€226m) for his services and hope their relationship with Neymar’s father will help facilitate a deal.

Man City & Spurs want Liverpool teen Brewster

Manchester City and Tottenham are the latest sides to show their interest in signing Rhian Brewster from Liverpool, The Sun reports.

The 18-year-old is said to have attracted interest from Monaco and teams in Germany as his deal with the Reds nears its end.

The Anfield outfit are determined to keep him, but they may face a much more difficult task as City and Spurs consider making a move for him.

Man Utd close in on Alex Sandro

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Juventus's Alex Sandro, The Times reports.

The left-back is seen as the perfect fit for what is a problem area for Jose Mourinho's side, with Luke Shaw out of favour and Ashley Young nearing the tail end of his career.

It is said that United will have to shell out more than £50 million ($67m) to land the Brazilian, with business likely to be concluded once both sides have played their last match of the season.

Barca to pay extra for Griezmann

Barcelona are willing to pay more than Antoine Griezmann's release clause in order to land the French attacker, Sport claims.

The report suggests that Barca are willing to pay £13 million ($17m) more than the player's £88m ($119m) release clause in order to preserve the clubs' good relationship after recent growing tension between the two sides.

Juventus want Morata reunion

Juventus are hoping for a reunion with striker Alvaro Morata this summer, according to Sky Sports .

The Spain international featured for the Serie A side for two years before being bought back by Real Madrid and then sold to Chelsea a year later.

But Morata has suffered through an inconsistent campaign in the Premier League and Juve are hoping he can return to Turin with Mario Mandzukic expected to depart.

Emery now the favorite at Arsenal

Outgoing Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery is now the favorite to take over for Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, claims the Daily and Sunday Express .

Massimiliano Allegri and Luis Enrique have both expressed concerns with Arsenal’s management structure while the Spanish boss also comes with wage concerns.

Emery is also wanted at rival London club West Ham as he bids adieu to PSG after two seasons which saw him fail to end the club’s struggles in the Champions League.

Fulham set sky-high Sessegnon price

Fulham have set a large £100 million ($135m/€113m) price tag on teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon, according to the Sun .

The Cottagers want a fee that would make the 17-year-old wide man the most expensive English player in history.

That price tag would likely knock out one of Sessegnon’s suitors, Tottenham, but Manchester United may be willing to pony up for the Championship Player of the Year.

Salah receives Liverpool promise

Mohamed Salah has been promised by Liverpool that he will be sold to Real Madrid this summer if he can help the club with the Champions League, according to Don Balon .

The Egypt winger has had his head turned by the Spanish giants and wants a move away from the Premier League side.

Realizing that, and wanting him to stay focused on the Champions League final, Liverpool have promised to make that move a reality should they be crowned as Europe’s best in Kiev.

Chelsea consider sacking Conte to keep Hazard

Part of the calculus behind the potential sacking of Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is to get Eden Hazard to sign a new contract, reports the Telegraph .

Hazard has been linked with a move away to Real Madrid and the relationship between him and Conte has become strained.

Chelsea hope landing an offensive minded coach like Luis Enrique or Maurizio Sarri can convince Hazard to remain in London.

Marcelo: I'd love Neymar at Madrid

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo would love to play with Neymar at the European giants.

Neymar, 26, has been strongly linked with a move to Madrid in the off-season, although Paris Saint-Germain presidentNasser Al-Khelaifi insisted Saturday the Brazil international was going nowhere.

"The best come to Madrid and I would love to play with Neymar," he said.

Allegri demands £200 million transfer budget

Massimiliano Allegri is demanding Arsenal provide him £200 million ($271m/€226m) in order to sign on with the Gunners, reports the Sun .

The Juventus manager believes major reinforcements are required to bring the club up to a level that can compete for titles in both the Premier League and Europe.

However, if his demands are met, he is willing to depart Turin for London and become Arsene Wenger’s successor.

Wolves target loan for Lindelof

Newly promoted Wolves are hoping to shore up their defence by landing Manchester United centre-back Victor Lindelof, according to the Mirror .

The Sweden international arrived for a £31 million ($42m/€35m) from Benfica last season but has struggled to maintain a place in the XI.

And Wolves would offer the promise of a starting spot and the chance to get more experience in the Premier League for Lindelof.

Arsenal want Koulibaly

Arsenal are hoping to land Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly in order to rebuild a struggling defence next season, reports the Sunday and Daily Express .

Napoli have priced the Senegal international at £53 million ($72m/€60m), which will be difficult for the Gunners to match without Champions League football.

The Serie A side know they may lose Koulibaly this summer, but expect to make a large profit on midfielder Jorginho, and feel they can attach a big fee to the defender.

Neymar 2000% staying at PSG - president

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is "2000 per cent" sure Neymar will not leave the club in the next transfer window.

The Brazil star continues to be linked to Real Madrid, less than one year after his world record €222 million (£201m/$264m) move to the French capital from Barcelona.

"Who says he can not stay here? Did anyone say that? No one," he said to reporters. "He has a contract with us, and he will stay, 2000%."

Arsenal are in the market for a long term replacement for Petr Cech and see Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno as the answer, says the Mirror .

Everton to sack Allardyce

Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has already decided to sack manager Sam Allardyce with chairman Bill Kenwright’s also in danger, according to the Sun .

Allardyce took over midseason and has guided the Toffees to a possible eighth place finish, but has not impressed Moshiri as the owner seeks to modernize the club’s approach.

Moshiri’s top target is Marco Silva, the former Watford manager, who was also heavily linked to the Everton job after Ronald Koeman was sacked earlier this season.
