Man Utd plan ‘attacking revolution’
Manchester United are ready to launch a potential record-breaking bid for Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos this summer. The Premier League club have made Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane their top priority, but are also exploring the possibility of signing Ramos as well in what would be an “attacking revolution” at Old Trafford. A deal for Ramos could eclipse the current club-record signing of Paul Pogba, who joined for £89.3 million from Juventus back in 2016.

Atleti eye Chelsea duo in Felix swap deal
Chelsea have contacted Atletico Madrid over the possibility of keeping on-loan forward Joao Felix beyond the current campaign. Atleti are willing to part with the 23-year-old, but are demanding a huge transfer fee. The two clubs are open to a potential player swap deal, which include Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marc Cucurella heading to the Spanish capital.
“Chelsea have also expressed their desire to reduce Felix’s asking price through swap deals, after learning that the Spanish side are interested in both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marc Cucurella.
“The Portugal international hopes to avoid a return to Madrid, where Diego Simeone is set to remain as manager after overcoming a brief spell of pressure earlier in the season.”
Arsenal add midfield trio to summer shortlist
Arsenal aim to add two new central midfielders to their squad this summer as Mikel Arteta plans to add some depth and quality to his current options. The Gunners have made West Ham United captain Declan Rice their top target, while Moises Caicedo and N’Golo Kante are also on their transfer shortlist. The decision to target multiple midfield signings has brought doubts over the future of Granit Xhaka, who is wanted by Bayer Leverkusen.
“Brighton ace Moises Caicedo, who Arsenal attempted to buy in January but were priced out of a move for, is an option as well as Chelsea stalwart N’Golo Kante.”
The end of an era at Barcelona
Sergio Busquets is set to leave Barcelona at the end of the season when his current contract expires. The Barca club legend will end his 15-year stay at the Camp Nou, but has not made a final decision on his future.
“The announcement has been rushed in the last few hours, although all parties preferred to make the decision public once the team has been proclaimed league champions.
“Saudi Arabia is positioned as the No.1 option for Busquets’ next destination, although the player has not yet made up his mind.”
