ALVARO MORATA

Manchester United are dominating the gossip columns in the UK media, with their pursuit of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

The Daily Mirror are reporting that United have issued a £60million take-it-or-leave-it offer to Madrid after they turned down an opening bid of £54.7million.

One transaction that will not be happening between United and Real is the sale of goalkeeper David De Gea.

The Spanish goalkeeper has long been linked to a move to the Bernabeu but Spanish newspaper Marca have said the La Liga club’s interest has cooled.

RATING: 8/10

SPORT360 VERDICT:
When called upon, Morata was prolific for Zinedine Zidane’s men last season – scoring 20 goals in all competitions. He guarantees goals and would be a fine acquisition for Jose Mourinho’s side given Real’s apparent willingness to sell.

Familia!!! Por todos los momentos que me aguantáis! Soportáis y queréis! Os quiero!!!❤️💪🏻🏆⚽️

ANDREA BELOTTI

Chelsea and Arsenal will wrestle with AC Milan to land the hitman this summer, according to Football Italia.

The Rossoneri have already had a first bid knocked back for the Torino striker, with Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men being unwilling to let the 23-year-old – who has a release clause of €86m for clubs outside Italy – leave on the cheap.

With more offers set to come in from home and abroad, Toro are in a strong position and are aware it could be a good time to cash in on Belotti.

RATING: 7/10

SPORT360 VERDICT:
The former Palermo striker enjoyed a stellar season in Serie A – netting 26 goals in 35 outings – and would be a star signing for most of European football’s top clubs. Expect a war for his signature.

Will Belotti wave goodbye this summer?

MATTHIAS GINTER

Tottenham are chasing the Borussia Dortmund defender in a £15million move, the Independent is reporting.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking to strengthen his defence as he prepares to mount another Premier League title challenge, whilst uncertainty surrounding the futures of Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld could mean he has to reshuffle his backline.

World Cup winner Ginter, 23, is expected to hold talks with Dortmund in the coming days but is said to be open to a switch to England.

RATING: 7/10

SPORT360 VERDICT:
Ginter’s versatility to operate in both defence and midfield makes him an attractive option for Spurs, along with his proven international and European experience.
