Memphis Depay might be given up by Barcelona, who need to get rid of a few earners after spending big on Robert Lewandowski and other players. Despite the forward’s reluctance to leave the Camp Nou, Spurs are considering breaking out the credit card and agreeing to a cost of £14 million for the Dutchman. Ivan Toney of Brentford is reportedly the subject of interest from Newcastle, West Ham, and Leeds, in addition to Manchester United, who is also keeping a scant eye on the striker. His 12 Premier League goals from the previous season have drawn interest from a few teams searching for a dependable striker. Newcastle is also interested in Jack Harrison, but Leeds will seek £35 million for the winger, which would deter most teams. Manchester City, who would gain some money from a sell-on clause, could benefit. Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones’ former teammate and buddy, may be willing to help him leave Manchester United for the safer havens of the MLS and DC United. Hasan Salihamidzic, the sports director at Bayern Munich, has once again denied that the German team is interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United. This shows how anxious Bayern Munich is to avoid doing so. I have a great deal of admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo’s accomplishments and career. Again, though: that was not and still is not a topic for us. Salihamidzic spoke with SPORT1. Chelsea wants Presnel Kimpembe of PSG, who might cost them a staggering £55 million, because they are not satisfied with merely buying Kalidou Koulibaly. Although they might be so desperate to add defenders that Levi Colwill, a teenager, asks to depart for better lands in order to avoid spending the entire season in a stalemate. Burnley has dismissed Everton’s request to recruit Maxwel Cornet on a loan with the option to buy because they want to pay their players in hard currency. Toffees, stoop up! Jordan Torunarigha, a defender for Hertha Berlin, is the subject of an offer from West Ham. After a successful season on loan at Gent, the German club values him at €5 million. Japhet Tanganga is one of several Spurs players that are eligible for transfers. The defender may have a fantastic offer to leave Milan. It was successful for Fikayo Tomori, so the 23-year-old has some options. The Fiver: subscribe to receive daily football. Ben Brereton Dáz, a Chilean striker for Blackburn who would cost around £20 million, may be poised to fetch a high price from Sevilla. Celtic is in negotiations with former Huddersfield Town player and current free agent Aaron Mooy. The midfielder would work with Ange Postecoglou, his former Australia coach, if he moved to Glasgow.
