Van de Beek made the £40m move from Ajax last summer, but Solskjaer has yet to find a way to fit him into the same midfield unit as Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

Portuguese newspaper Record (via Sport Witness) reports Sporting could strike an agreement with Goncalves in the coming days as they attempt to keep their prize asset.

16:05 - Newcastle want Chelsea pair on loan

Newcastle United have expressed an interest in signing Tammy Abraham and Billy Gilmour on loan from Chelsea for next season.
Steve Bruce isn't expecting to have much of a transfer budget this summer and so the Magpies boss is prioritising loan additions, with Abraham and Gilmour identified as targets.

While Chelsea are reluctant to allow Abraham and Gilmour depart, Newcastle United believe that stance could change over the course of the summer window.

15:10 - Aguero to Barca confirmed!

There it is - Barcelona have confirmed they will sign Sergio Aguero as a free agent when his Manchester City contract expires this summer.
It had become the worst-kept secret in European football over the last few weeks, but the deal is done and Aguero will be a Barcelona player.
The question is - will his buddy Lionel Messi still be at the Camp Nou next season? You'd have to think Aguero wouldn't have signed if he thought Messi was leaving...

14:50 - Wijnaldum coy on Liverpool exit

Georginio Wijnaldum is set to leave Liverpool when his contract expires this summer, but the Dutchman is remaining coy on his reasons for departing Anfield.

"I will explain that some time, but it is not that it just comes from me," Wijnaldum said from the Netherlands' pre-Euro 2020 training camp.
"I decided not to sign a new contract for nothing. I explained it to my Liverpool teammates. They understand me completely."

Barcelona are expected to confirm the signing of Eric Garcia any day now (it could even happen today), but the Catalans could target another central defender.
Mundo Deportivo claim Barca have joined the race to sign Jules Kounde with the French defender keen to leave Sevilla this summer.
Kounde has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs and would be a good fit for Barcelona, but could cost as much as €70m - that's his release clause!
Where would Barcelona find that sort of money considering they are in around €1 billion worth of debt at the moment?

14:20 - PSG's big budget!

This season was a disappointing one for Paris Saint-Germain as they went out of the Champions League at the semi final stage and lost out to Lille in the Ligue 1 title race.
However, French football journalist Romain Collet-Gaudin reports PSG will have a big budget to rebuild their squad this summer, hinting at a number of big signings in the offing.
Of course, Mauricio Pochettino's future at the Parc des Princes is far from certain as he ponders a return to Tottenham Hotspur, but the prospect of having money to spend in the transfer market could persuade him to stay.
Collet-Gaudin claims PSG's Qatari owners want to win the Champions League before Qatar hosts the 2022 World Cup next winter.

14:05 - Milan want cut-price deal for Tonali

Last summer, AC Milan looked to have pulled off a coup by luring highly rated midfielder Sandro Tonali to the club, beating Inter and Juventus to his signature.
However, Tonali endured a difficult first season at the San Siro and while AC Milan still want to keep him (after a season on loan from Brescia) they hope to negotiate a cut-price deal.
Calcio Mercato claims AC Milan want to pay less than the €15m price they negotiated with Brescia a year ago. If you ask me, €15m would still be a bargain!

13:20 - United's summer transfer plans

Manchester United's 2020/21 season ended with disappointment in the Europa League final, but the Old Trafford club have now reportedly started working on deals for a number of transfer targets.
Manchester Evening News provides details on United's plans for the summer window with director of football negotiations Matt Judge already holding talks with representatives of some players.

Now, the Moroccan's agent has opened up on the transfer talk amid reports Inter will demand €80m for one of their best players.
"In the future I don't know, all players have a price and I believe that if all of Europe has seen Inter and their title-winning football, all the players will be taken into consideration," Alejandro Camano told Telelombardia (via Daily Mail).
"There is no situation at the moment (with Hakimi). I haven't talked to any club and I don't think Inter have either. It is a difficult time for football, there is a difficult economic situation. "

Of course, the Premier League champions are already well-stocked for options at the back, with Ruben Dias and John Stones helping City to the title. Guardiola also has Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte as deputies.
ESPN claim Guardiola believes a player of Ramos' experience would improve the competitiveness of his squad, with City even exploring how a future move to New York City FC in MLS could be worked into any deal.

AS (via Sport Witness) claims Keita's representatives offered their client to Atletico Madrid a few weeks ago. However, the Spanish champions have not registered an interest in the player.

L'Equipe (via Sport Witness) claim Guendouzi has agreed to join Marseille, although the Ligue 1 club has yet to reach an agreement with Arsenal in terms of a transfer fee.
However, Guendouzi's contract at the Emirates Stadium is set to expire in the summer of 2022, so this might be the Gunners' last opportunity to draw a signficant fee for a player with raw potential.
Marseille are also reportedly interested in William Saliba, another forgotten figure at Arsenal.
