José Mourinho is ready for a summer splurge. The Manchester United manager wants to raid Spurs for the out-of-favour pair of Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld, and while he’s in north London he’ll bag himself Hector Bellerín from Arsenal. Napoli’s Jorginho, Alex Sandro from Juventus and Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney will complete his £200m trolley dash.
On his way out of Old Trafford, though, is goalkeeper Dean Henderson. The 21-year-old has been in fine form for League One Shrewsbury and is a blipping green dot on the radars of Arsenal and, um, Aston Villa.
Speaking of goalkeepers, Liverpool fancy offering Iker Casillas a Premier League payday. The former Spain No 1 is set to leave Porto in the summer.
And, in what has rapidly become a shotstopper special, Premier League-bound Wolves want Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain. But then, so do Celtic. And Stoke.
At the other end of the pitch, Jürgen Klopp also fancies a bit of Cagliari hotshot Nicolo Barella, though Internazionale and Borussia Dortmund are hovering.
Leicester have £22m burning a hole in their pocket and want to spend it all on a move for Porto defender Ricardo Pereira.
Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona = Rodrigo Moreno to Atlético Madrid.
Everton are ready to go toe-to-toe with Real Betis, Villarreal and Eibar for ADO De Haag’s Wilfried Kanon.
Chelsea have plans to plug their leaky backline with Newcastle’s £30m-rated Jamaal Lascelles. And Celtic’s Kristoffer Ajer is a target for Dortmund.
