Manchester United are closing in a left-field deal to sign Matheus Cunha in a £42million deal. Erik ten Hag has been desperate to sign a forward and may now finally be closing in on one.
TalkSPORT claim a deal is on the verge of being agreed with the player keen to make the move to Old Trafford. Man Utd had initially moved for Antony but have been searching for alternatives after being priced out of a move by Ajax.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are working on two deals to take their total signings for the summer to eight. A £12.6m agreement with Inter Milan for 19-year-old Cesare Casadei could be struck today while the Blues have also submitted a fresh and improved bid for Anthony Gordon.
Everton rebuffed their first offer but the player has told Frank Lampard he wants to join Chelsea and may force the Toffees’ hand. Chelsea and United remain in the hunt for De Jong but the saga looks set to go right down to the wire.
United had struck an agreement on the price for the midfielder but that has now reportedly expired and negotiations will need to be restarted. Meanwhile, the likes of Arsenal, Newcastle, West Ham and Liverpool could still do some late business with reinforcements being eyed.
