Transfer news LIVE! Real Madrid looks at Sterling; Perisic joins Spurs; Lewandowski problems; Klopp meets Tchouamen

This week, the summer 2022 transfer window finally opens.

Manchester United are hoping to close some early deals and Erik Ten Hag could be awarded a war chest of around £120m as he attempts what surely has to be a major rebuild.

However, Frenkie de Jong may prove out of reach after reports outlined his desire to stay in Barcelona, ​​buying a new house in the city. Jurrien Timber and Darwin Núñez are targets with the Benfica striker also wanted by Tottenham.

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are believed to be interested in Raheem Sterling as he heads into the final year of his contract, with Manchester City having made no decision on his extension.

Spurs are hoping to announce their first summer signing today after Ivan Perisic successfully underwent a medical, although their attempts to sign Alessandro Bastoni have hit a snag. In terms of departures, the club are willing to sell Harry Winks, but they also need to get rid of non-local players.

At Chelsea, Todd Boehly’s takeover has led to a flurry of market activity with the arrival of Jules Kounde, while the club have received a key boost in a potential move for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez. Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku has been inclined to head in the opposite direction.

Robert Lewandowski, meanwhile, has made quite a statement. The Bayern Munich striker says his story with the club is “finished” as links continue with a move to Barcelona. Bayern chief executive Oliver Khan responded to those comments, while La Liga president Javier Tebas said Barcelona are currently unable to sign Lewandowski.

In other news at the club, Serge Gnabry has been offered a new contract amid links with Arsenal and Fabian Ruiz is in a similar position amid talks about his future.

The biggest move on the continent is expected to see Aurelien Tchouameni join Real Madrid for around £75m, despite apparent attempts by Jurgen Klopp to persuade the midfielder to join Liverpool.

Start the fight for Ousmane Dembélé

Ousmane Dembele is out of contract at Barcelona this summer and an extension does not appear to be on the cards.

That means a free transfer is apparently on the cards with PSG one of the favorites to sign the winger.

However, Sport report that PSG are focused on situations at the club for now, which has delayed any negotiations with Dembele, which could leave other clubs in the driving seat when it comes to signing the Frenchman.

Liverpool are a club that could well be interested as they look for a replacement for Sadio Mane, who is expected to leave this summer. Chelsea have also been linked to Dembélé.

Daley Blind: Erik ten Hag a ‘control freak’

Daley Blind has given the Manchester United players an idea of ​​what to expect from new manager Erik ten Hag.

“A manager who loves to play attacking football, which is what Man United stands for, I think,” Blind told United Daily.

“At Ajax, he knows that everyone at the club is important and everyone has to get involved to get to that winning mentality. He wants to keep everything closed and I think he is a control freak as well.”

Nathan Ake and Oleksandr Zinchenko get the green light to leave

Raheem Sterling could be on the move this summer, as are his Manchester City team-mates Nathan Ake and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The Times reports that City have told the defensive duo that they are free to leave the club at the next window, if reasonable offers are received.

That will be particularly positive news for Arsenal, who are rumored to be very interested in Zinchenko. Arteta worked with the Ukrainian at City and the Gunners hope he can be a big factor in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid follows the situation of Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling is reportedly attracting interest from Real Madrid as he heads into the final year of his contract at Manchester City.

The winger has been at the club for seven years but a decision on his future has yet to be made. Sterling is expected to speak to City when he returns from international duty.

Real Madrid is one of the clubs monitoring the situation, as is Bayern Munich, and both will be encouraged by comments Sterling has made in the past.

“I would love to play abroad and see how I meet that challenge,” Sterling said last year.
