MAN UNITED LINKED WITH LIVERPOOL TARGET
We have heard plenty about Liverpool chasing Roma goalkeeper Alisson (though it now looks likely that they will show faith in Loris Karius) and also plenty about them being put off by his ÂŁ88m asking price. Well they would be; itâs preposterous.
Now The Sun are quotingÂ Gazzetta dello Sport claiming that Manchester United are also interested in the Brazilian as they prepare to lose David De Gea to Real Madrid. Surely Real Madrid will just sign Alisson if heâs that good. Oh they areâŚ
Real Madrid’s offer is set to be âŹ70m, several meetings have occurred between Alisson’s entourage & the La Liga side, according to RMC.

ROONEY WANTS MOVE TO MLS
Wayne Rooney wants to move to MLS club DC United, according to the Daily Mail, who say he is ready to sign a ÂŁ12.5m contract.Â Of course he is. Our favourite line is the one about Rooney being âon the verge of turning his back on the Premier Leagueâ; surely the Premier League has already turned its back on Rooney.
That ÂŁ12.5m contract â which will run until the end of the MLS 2020 season â is said by the Mail to be worth ÂŁ12.5m, but The Sun claim exclusively that âWAYNE ROONEYâS bumper ÂŁ300,000-a-week deal at DC United will be paid by THREE different clubsâ. Those numbers do not add up in the slightest but all we really know is that Rooney will be off and nobody will miss him.
PSG JOIN RACE FOR SESSEGNON
Well he does sound a tad French so itâs little wonder that PSG are eyeing Fulhamâs teenage wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon. Manchester United, Manchester City are all said to be interested in Sessegnon and now â according to the Daily Mirror â PSG are now pushing hard to try to land the starlet, who could cost up to ÂŁ50million.
Sessegnonâs future will surely hinge on Fulhamâs fate in the Championship play-offs; he has made it clear that he would stay with the Cottagers for one season in the top flight.
