Contact made: Man United eye move for La Liga star who has a release clause of only €25m

Man United’s squad doesn’t need a radical overhaul going into next season, but it does look like a few areas need to be strengthened.

Finding a top class centre back and attacker needs to be the priority, but they could also do with another option in the centre of midfield.

Paul Pogba looks like he could stay and sign a new contract although that’s still up in the air, but the biggest problem comes if he’s out as a combination of Fred/McTominay and occasionally Nemanja Matic isn’t enough for the elite level.

It’s unlikely that big money will be spent on the position because of the needs elsewhere, so AS have reported that Getafe midfielder Mauro Arambarri has emerged as a target.

Gerard Pique has certainly earned the right to don this tag and is recognised not only for his contributions on the pitch but off it as well.

Barcelona are studying every possible way to sign Erling Haaland

The pursuit for Erling Haaland in the summer is seemingly still a priority for Barcelona and president Joan Laporta. The Norwegian has been linked to Barcelona for quite a while now, but the rumours about him have relatively died down in recent weeks, until now.

According to today’s edition of SPORT, the Catalans are still trying for Haaland. They are studying every possible avenue to facilitate a move to the Camp Nou, as Joan Laporta is a huge fan of the player and wants to bring him to Spain by any measures within their means.

Borussia Dortmund have slapped a very hefty price tag of over 150 million euros for Erling Haaland at the very least. However, with Barcelona’s financial situation in dire straits, that kind of funding will be nearly impossible to acquire off the bat.

Barcelona have been in need of a pure number ‘9’, and it … Read the rest
