Man Utd to bid for Martial
Manchester United are ready to submit a mega money offer for Monaco striker Anthony Martial, L’Equipe has learned.
The Red Devils have informed the Ligue 1 side they are ready to pay €50 million for the France international as they look to reinforce the attacking department before the transfer window closes tomorrow.
However, Monaco have no plans to cash in on their prized asset just yet, although an improved offer would probably make the club chiefs change their minds.
The Principality club are showing interest in Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, but the problem is the Mexican is closing in on a move to Bayer Leverkusen.
Anthony Martial was snatched from Lyon two years ago and the 19-year-old has already shown a great deal of potential.
The talented forward bagged a total of 13 goals last season and has recently received his first call-up to the France national team.
Roma recruit William Vainqueur
Italian giants AS Roma have completed the signing of Dynamo Moscow midfielder William Vainqueur, according to the Russian club.
The Giallorossi decided to step up interest in the French midfielder after it was revealed Kevin Strootman would undergo another surgery and they did well to quickly complete the deal.
Reports have suggested that Roma will pay around €3 million for the 26-year-old footballer, who has signed a three-year deal at Stadio Olimpico.
Vainqueur only joined the Russian giants last summer from Standard Liege, but he largely impressed in his first season at the club.
The Frenchman went on to score 2 goals in 27 league appearances, and quickly caught the eye of Europe’s top clubs.
The former Nantes midfielder has now secured a big club move and it’s up to him to prove he has what it takes to perform at the highest level.
Porto to sign Miguel Layun
Portuguese daily newspaper A Bola has learned that FC Porto are on the verge of signing Mexico full-back Miguel Layun.
The 27-year-old joined the Hornets from Club America in January 2015, and he has featured on regular basis since arriving at the club.
However, it would appear as though Watford are prepared to offload him this summer as FC Porto have all but agreed a season-long loan for his services.
Layun’s representatives are sorting out the final details of the transfer in Lisbon and the deal should be announced in the coming hours.
Having stayed without both Alex Sandro and Danilo Luiz da Silva, the Dragons will now be adding to their ranks the player who can operate on either side of defence.
Miguel Layun has been capped 31 times by Mexico and he started all six games as El Tri claimed the 2015 Gold Cup trophy.
