United and City are said to be interested, with the England captain’s fee expected to be around £150million. Juventus are also keen, according to Tuttosport.
Jadon Sancho will be allowed to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer if he asks for a transfer, the Evening Standard reports. The 19-year-old England winger is wanted by Manchester United and Chelsea in particular, but has also attracted the interest of Liverpool and Barcelona. The England representative has been in sterling form this season at Dortmund with 14 goals and 15 assists.
Chelsea and Tottenham are set to fight it out for the signature of young Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, The Sun reports. Both London clubs are keen to acquire a young goalkeeper with adequate Premier League experience, with Kepa Arrizibalaga and Hugo Lloris having been plagued by bad form.
