Welcome to another day, and another occasion to go through all the transfer talk that has been swirling around the football world for the past 24 hours. All the top leagues have officially resumed with their competition, which can only mean that there will more and more teams desperate to either look for stop-gap signings or make shrewd purchases that make sense in the long run as well as aiding them during the remaining half season. So without further ado, let us take a look at the top transfer stories for the day for each of the Premier League’s top six sides…
#6 Manchester United
United to enter the race for Seria A star?
Manchester United have reportedly joined Arsenal, Tottenham and Bayern Munich in chasing Roma’s Cengiz Under, according to ESPN FC. The 21-year-old will stay put in Serie A this month, putting to an end his immediate future, but an exit comes season end is what his representatives are looking at, and this suits all three abovementioned teams, who are unwilling to invest in January.
United, without a permanent manager and themselves unlikely to sign players in January, have also scented a deal materialising in the summer for the Turkey international. Under, on his part, is happy and committed to Roma, but remains one of the lowest paid members of the first-team, raking in around €1m per season. Negotiations over a new deal have stalled, with the winger’s representatives and the club accepting that an end of season transfer is best for both parties. The capital club are also reluctant to offer a pay increase to Under, instead of ready to cash in for a significant profit.
