Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd reserve shirt number for £131m superstar signing; Juve enforcer drops £33m Arsenal hint

Manchester United have warned a major star could be on his way if they bring in a £131m superstar this summer, while Arsenal and Chelsea have been given hope of landing Juventus favourites this summer, according to Wednesday’s European papers.


The silly season appears to be in full swing and the latest reports from Spain suggest a major transfer coup could be on the cards at Manchester United.

According to the claims in Don Balon, United boss Jose Mourinho is growing in confidence of a €150million (£131m) swoop to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford this summer.

It’s suggested Ronaldo is ready to call time on his record-breaking time in LaLiga with Real Madrid, where this season he enjoyed a fifth Champions League success of his glittering career.

And according to the report, a return to Old Trafford for Ronaldo would spell bad news for Alexis Sanchez, with the Spanish outlet claiming Mourinho has handed the underperforming Chilean a transfer ultimatum.

Apparently, Sanchez has been told that Ronaldo’s signing will mean Sanchez will have to sacrifice his No 7 shirt and his place in the United side; with failure to accept either likely to lead to his sale! (Yes, we know how silly this sounds!)

Mourinho insists no player can ever be guaranteed a shirt or a place at Manchester United, but it’s claimed he would make an exception for Ronaldo – should the Portuguese superstar agree to make a return.

Despite turning 34 next season, Mourinho believes United’s attack would pose much more of a threat with Ronaldo in its ranks, with Alexis having netted just three goals from his 18 appearances for the club so far.

The report concludes that Sanchez is far from happy at news of Ronaldo’s imminent return and could seek to leave anyway just a matter of months after arriving in one of the most talked about transfers in recent years.

Paper Talk: Chelsea in contact with Barcelona over £100m Man Utd target

Chelsea have held initial talks with Barcelona over the signing of a Man Utd target, while there has been a shock development in Marko Arnautovic’s proposed China move, according to Sunday’s papers.

CHELSEA IN TALKS OVER MOVE FOR BARCA PLAYMAKERChelsea have reportedly made contact with Barcelona over a £100m move for Philippe Coutinho as the Spanish side look to offload the Brazilian playmaker.

The Catalan giants paid £142million for Coutinho last January, with the former Liverpool star winning La Liga and the Copa del Rey honours in his first few months at the Nou Camp.

However, his dream move has since turned into a nightmare and he is struggling to hold down a place in Ernesto Valverde’s starting XI.

Coutinho has dropped below France winger Ousmane Dembele in the pecking order and that has led to Manchester United making enquiries about his services, while talk of a return to Anfield has been quashed by Jurgen Klopp.

Barca are believed to be willing to sell Coutinho to fund a potential …
