Solskjaer’s £63m plea
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made a personal plea to Ed Woodward for the club to ‘speed up’ a deal for Bruno Fernandes.
They face strong competition for the Portugal international with Tottenham also interested.
However, both clubs are refusing to meet Sporting’s €70m (£63m) valuation meaning negotiations have come to a halt.
But Solskjaer is desperate not to miss out on the talented 24-year-old who bagged 31 goals last season.
And according to Portuguese publication Record, Solskjaer has personally asked executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to conclude a deal in time for pre-season.
Pepe makes Liverpool decision
Liverpool and Manchester United target Nicolas Pepe wants to join PSG this summer.
According to French outlet Le 10 Sport, Inter have launched a £67m bid for the winger, while an unnamed English club have put a £76m offer on the table.
However, they go onto say that Pepe’s preference is PSG.
The French-Ivorian is said to dream of joining the Ligue 1 champions and hopes they will make an offer to prise him away from Lille in the summer window.
That dream could become a reality for him if PSG decide to cash in on Neymar, with several reports suggesting Barcelona are plotting to bring their former star back to Spain.
If the Brazilian does seal a return to the Nou Camp, PSG could look to replace him with Pepe.
Emery wants Zaha
Unai Emery has asked Arsenal bosses for extra transfer funds to sign Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha this summer.
Defenders and a central midfield player remain the top priorities for Emery, but according to The Sun, he is now eyeing Zaha.
The report says that Emery is asking Arsenal chiefs for extra funds with Palace wanting at least £55m for the Ivory Coast star.
But with Aaron Wan-Bisska likely to join Manchester United, Palace will drag their heels in an effort to hang on to their talisman.
