In wake of the news regarding their rivals’ European ban, it appears Manchester United have been handed a huge transfer boost.
It’s understood head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be handed a half-a-billion dollar warchest to build his Old Trafford squad.
That and more in another edition of Rumour Mill!
SOLSKJAER TO BE HANDED HALF-A-BILLION DOLLAR TRANSFER WARCHEST
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reportedly be handed £274million (A$532m) to work with in next season’s transfer window.
The sensational claim was made by football finance experts Soccerex, who in their latest report suggest United have an unprecedented amount of cash for the summer sales.
Solskjaer has spent £220m ($427m) in the two windows he has had as Old Trafford boss — spending more money than any other manager during that time period.
The United boss has signed Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo during his reign.
But the spending will not stop there.
United are still battling Chelsea for the signing of Jadon Sancho, who is set to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer.
PREMIER LEAGUE GIANTS IN TUG-OF-WAR FOR ISCO
Arsenal and Chelsea are both eyeing up a shock move for £63m-rated ($122m) star Isco as Real Madrid look to raise funds for a summer spending spree.
Above all else, Los Blancos are eyeing up an audacious, record-breaking move for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe this summer.
But first they will need to find the cash, with in-demand 27-year-old Isco one of many stars set to be sold.
Reports in Spain claim no fewer than FOUR clubs are chasing the Spanish midfielder this summer – with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City amongst them.
PSG themselves are also pursuing the playmaker – and could lead the way to land him if they sell Mbappe to Madrid.
MADDISON ‘DESPERATE’ FOR OLD TRAFFORD MOVE
James Maddison is desperate to sign for Manchester United and “would have joined years ago” if it were up to him, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been chasing the Leicester playmaker, 23, all season and is set to bring him to Old Trafford as part of a monster £274m summer spree.
And now a source has told the Manchester Evening News that Maddison would have joined even earlier if he’d been allowed to.
Maddison is under contract at Leicester until 2023 and is said to still be considering putting pen to paper on a new deal.
Part of the confusion for the No.10 revolves around United’s January signing of Bruno Fernandes.
But Man Utd are adamant they are still chasing both Maddison AND Grealish, despite bringing in the Portuguese star in the January window.
