Euro Paper Talk: No-nonsense Rangnick to discard Man Utd quartet as talks for Colombian sensation begin; Newcastle push hard for German star

Published

on

Manchester United are laying the transfer groundwork for Luis Diaz – and also plan to ruthlessly sell off four stars, Newcastle are preparing a new offer for a Germany star, while Monday’s Euro Paper Talk claims Arsenal have a new big-money striker signing in their sights.

LUIS DIAZ PLANS ‘UNDERWAY’ FOR MAN UTD

Manchester United are starting the ‘transfer groundwork’ over a deal to bring Luis Diaz to Old Trafford.

The Colombian sensation has been in red-hot form this season, scoring 16 goals and weighing in with four assists from 24 appearances.

It’s that kind of form that has drawn him to the attention of a number of suitors, with Liverpool seemingly leading the charge.

However, Portuguese outlet O Jogo claims it is the Red Devils who are now leading the charge.

They claim United, alongside Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, had officials in attendance to watch Diaz in action this weekend.

But it is United who appear most keen with the ‘transfer groundwork’ being done over a surprise swoop.

Whether that happens now or in the summer remains to be seen.

But it’s reported that Ralf Rangnick is an enormous fan of Diaz and wants him to play on the left of United’s attack.

Diaz has a £67m release clause in his contract if activated this month. That drops to nearer £45m in the summer, so there is an obvious benefit to them waiting.

Luis Diaz in, but four players to leave

To accommodate his huge transfer fee, though, Rangnick will reportedly ruthlessly sell off four players.

As per reports in Spain, the surprise duo of Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be allowed to leave this summer. It’s claimed the German is unconvinced by either player and says United are open to offers.

Wan-Bissaka has seen his place taken by Diogo Dalot. Maguire, meanwhile, has yet to show why, on a consistent basis, United forked out £80m for his services.

Furthermore, Anthony Martial will also depart this week. A move to Juventus looks on the cards, while Sevilla remain keen.

And the Red Devils could also look to cash in on Jadon Sancho after an underwhelming start to his United career.

Sheffield Wednesday weighing up potential swoop for 25-year-old ahead of summer window

Published

2022 02 05T134543Z 1458808289 UP1EI251285Y2 RTRMADP 3 SOCCER ENGLAND CHE PLA REPORT 1

Sheffield Wednesday are weighing up a potential swoop for Panutche Camara ahead of the summer transfer window, according to a report from The Star.

Camara will be allowed to leave his current club Plymouth Argyle when the window opens in June after he turned down a new long-term deal at Home Park.

The 25-year-old’s current contract is set to run until 2023 and thus this summer represents a good opportunity for the Pilgrims to secure a reasonable fee for him.

Wednesday could face competition from elsewhere for Camara’s signature as Peterborough United have been recently touted as a potential suitor.

Whereas the midfielder was powerless to prevent his side from missing out on a place in the play-offs due to the fact that he was sidelined for Plymouth’s final two games, he did produce a host of impressive performances in the third-tier last season.

As well as scoring four goals, Camara provided six assists in 40 appearances at this level.

During Plymouth’s FA Cup clash with Wednesday in November, Camara showcased his talent by setting up two goals for his team-mates as his side clinched a 3-0 victory.

The Verdict

Certainly no stranger to life in League One, Camara has featured on 81 occasions in this division during his career and thus could potentially make an instant impact at Hillsborough next season if the Owls opt to splash the cash on him.

When you consider that the midfielder may not be short of suitors following his recent escapades at Plymouth, Wednesday will need to act quickly in order to have the best chance of signing him.

With there being no guarantee that Massimo Luongo will extend his stay at Hillsborough past the summer, Camara could potentially fill the void left by the Australian if he opts to move on to pastures new.

As well as illustrating his creativity in the third-tier for Plymouth, Camara made 2.1 tackles per game at this level as he averaged a WhoScored match rating of 7.00 last season.

Providing that Wednesday step up their pursuit by reaching an agreement with Plymouth, there is no reason why they cannot go on to excel with Camara in their side.
