Another day, another story about the future of versatile Bayern Munich defender David Alaba, 28, who this morning is linked with two Premier League clubs.
According to reports in the Daily Express, Manchester United have made formal contact with the Austria international’s agent over signing the player when his contract expires next summer.
Also, Manchester United are confident of completing the £37m signing of Amad Diallo from Atalanta next month, according to reports in The Times.
United announced on deadline day in October that they had reached an agreement with Atalanta to sign the 18-year-old winger in January, provided that he obtained a work permit.
Meanwhile, Liverpool have reached an agreement with Lille to sign their Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches for £18m, according to reports in the Mirror.
The Portugal international, 23, has a contract with the Ligue 1 club until the summer of 2023.
Liverpool say they have no plans to offload Egypt international forward Mohamed Salah, reports the Sun.
According to Salah’s former Egypt team-mate Mohamed Aboutrika, the player is unhappy at Anfield and the Premier League champions are considering selling him for economic reasons.
However, the red top says that is not true and the club and manager Jurgen Klopp are both happy with the 28-year-old, who has a contract on Merseyside until the summer of 2023 and is the current top scorer in the Premier League.
