Barcelona in Neymar transfer blow
Neymar is finally prepared to sign a new Paris Saint-Germain contract, according to ESPN.
The Brazilian was linked with a high-profile move back to Barcelona this summer.
He was desperate to go “home” to the Nou Camp, it was claimed, but a move failed to materialise.
But, Neymar’s plan to sign a new PSG deal depends on the club’s progress in this season’s Champions League.
Bruno Fernandes to Man Utd in jeopardy
Bruno Fernandes’ transfer to Manchester United has hit a roadblock after Sporting Lisbon hiked their valuation of the midfielder to £68million.
The two parties had looked close to agreeing a deal on Friday and United sources admit there is still a will to get the business done.
But Express Sport understands the Premier League giants made it quite clear this morning they have no intention of meeting the latest valuation of €80million.
Tottenham offered £38m for the Portugal international in the summer in a take-it-or-leave-it bid.
And while United concede the player has probably inflated his value with an excellent six months in the green and white hoops of Sporting, it is understood their valuation is nearer £50m plus add-ons.
Contrary to some reports United and Fernandes have not yet agreed personal terms with the 25-year-old.
Chelsea open Timo Werner talks
Chelsea’s interest on RB Leipzig star Timo Werner has led to Liverpool speeding up their efforts to sign the German striker.
The Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has been a long-term admirer of Werner but preferred to save an approach for the summer transfer window.

However, the Blues have already opened negotiations for the Germany international, who has been on fire this season with a staggering total of 23 goals in 25 appearances.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Stamford Bridge outfit’s approach after the lifting of their FIFA transfer ban has led to an immediate interest at Anfield as Frank Lampard wants to complete a deal this month.
Therefore, the two Premier League rivals may be set to enter a £60million battle over the 23-year-old talisman.
Werner has already stated that he would be open to a move to England but is not keen on leaving Leipzig at the moment.
Layvin Kurzawa contract ‘agreed’
Layvin Kurzawa has reportedly agreed to join Arsenal when his contract at PSG ends this summer.
Left-back Kurzawa has also been linked with a move to Inter Milan.
But according to France Football, Kurzawa has chosen the Emirates over the San Siro, and will join in the summer.
Kurzawa has started just six Ligue 1 games this season and Arteta is keen to strengthen his back-line.
