Paul Scholes: Manchester United should target Harry Kane, not Jadon Sancho


10:54 - Heracles sign De la Torre

Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo have signed 22-year-old American midfielder Luca de la Torre from Fulham.

De la Torre made just seven first-team appearances for the southwest London club since joining them as a 15-year-old in 2013.

He moves to Holland on a free transfer.

10:45 - Chong 'wanted by Werder'

Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong is wanted by German side Werder Bremen.

The 20-year-old winger signed a new deal to stay at Old Trafford, but the Sun reports that the Bundesliga club are keen to offer him first-team football. The move would likely be a loan, giving Chong the chance to get some game time next season.

Paper Round’s view: Chong offered very little when he appeared for United’s first team, but he has plenty of pace and is highly rated. Giving him the chance to develop elsewhere away from the pressure of the Premier League could be the best way for him to improve his game and to develop the confidence needed to succeed.

10:29 - 'We wish Alexis well'

Sanchez leaves Manchester United having scored just five goals for the club, since his swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January 2018. As a result, he has relinquished the club's iconic number seven shirt.

"Everyone at Manchester United wishes Alexis Sanchez all the best in his future career as he joins Inter Milan on a permanent transfer," United said on their website.


10:05 - Official: Alexis Sanchez signs for Inter

Alexis Sanchez has joined Inter Milan on a three-year deal, both clubs have announced.

Alexis moved to the Serie A club on a season-long loan in August 2019, making 29 appearances and scoring four goals.

09:55 - Arsenal frontrunners for Gabriel

Despite Napoli's interest, 29-year-old Gabriel has reportedly decided to join Arsenal. According to La Voix du Nord, the Lille defender was "seduced" by the speech of the Gunners' leaders.

09:34 - Roma has new owners

American billionaire Dan Friedkin has signed a deal to purchase the Italian Serie A club AS Roma, the club said on Thursday.

Roma said formal contracts with the Friedkin Group were signed on Wednesday for a transaction valued at €591 million. The transaction is anticipated to close by the of the month.

"We have signed the contracts tonight and, over the coming days, will now work together to complete the formal and legal process that will result in the club changing hands," AS Roma president James Pallotta said in a statement.


09:23 - Arsenal continuing Willian pursuit

The Telegraph reports that Arsenal continue their pursuit of Chelsea winger Willian.

The North London club announced 55 redundancies on Wednesday, but they are still keen on persuading the 31-year-old Brazilian international to accept a three-year deal which could earn him more than the two years offered by his current club, once bonuses are taken into account.

Paper Round’s view: The manner in which Arsenal announced the redundancies was poorly handled, with fans mainly upset that owner Stan Kroenke had not put his hand in his pocket to keep the people in a job. As for the transfer, it seems a foolhardy amount of time to offer a winger, and it may be more to do with pleasing agents than finding the very best value for money for each transfer.

09:09 - Alexis Sanchez heading for Inter

Alexis Sanchez's permanent switch to Inter Milan will be confirmed imminently, according to Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"Yeah I believe so [Sanchez moving to Inter] and I can confirm that," he told BT Sport after his side's 2-1 Europa League win over LASK.

"Alexis has had a good time over there, he's a good player and we wish him all the best."

"It will be official tomorrow (Thursday) in the morning," Inter CEO Beppe Marotta told Sky Sports.

The player is completely ours and we have a three-year contract with him. We think he can be a full member of our squad.
