Chelsea look ready to allow Callum Hudson-Odoi to leave on loan, while Manchester United remain busy in the market. The Red Devils appear ready to walk away from a deal to sign Adrien Rabiot, but still want a new midfielder. Casemiro has been mentioned, although the Real Madrid general could be tricky to prize away given his importance to Los Blancos. United continue to chase Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong with a new report coming out saying that the club could be willing to pay the midfielder’s deferred wages which has been a major sticking point in any deal, an initial deal has been reportedly retracted, but talks continue, with the clubs waiting to see what the Dutch midfielder wants to do surrounding his wages.

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Sergio Gomez from Anderlecht. The 21-year-old Spanish defender joins on a four-year deal having made 49 appearances for the Belgian club throughout the 2021-22 campaign which saw him voted as the Belgian club’s Player of the Year.

“I am incredibly proud and happy to have joined Manchester City,” Gomez said. “City are the best team in England and in Pep Guardiola I have a chance to learn and develop under the most outstanding manager in world football.”

Wolves are also making moves and have agreed a club-record £42.2m deal for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Matheus Nunes but personal terms are yet to be finalized whilst Leicester’s Wesley Fofana is annoyed at the club for pricing him out of a potential move to Chelsea.

The Moroccan international has scored 14 goals in two seasons at Stamford Bridge but could reunite with Erik ten Hag after the pair enjoyed plenty of success together at Ajax.

Djellit states that United’s board are ‘listening to manager Erik ten Hag on the subject’ and are willing to advocate a deal if Chelsea’s asking price is within reason.

Man Utd interested in Caicedo

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Moises Caicedo from Brighton after talks with Adrien Rabiot broke down.

United have refused to meet Rabiot’s wage demands after a broad agreement had been reached with Juventus on a £15m fee for the midfielder and they are now switching their focus to alternate options.

Caicedo only made his Premier League debut for Brighton in April but has become a first-team regular for Graham Potter’s side having started their last 10 league games.

The 20-year-old was linked with a move to Old Trafford back in February 2021 before eventually joining Brighton after another bungled negotiation from the Red Devils.

The Seagulls have no intention of selling Caicedo so it’ll be a pricey decision if United land him this summer.

Man City sign left-back Sergio Gomez from Anderlecht

Manchester City have completed the signing of left-back Sergio Gomez from Anderlecht for £11 million.

The 21-year-old Spaniard arrives as a replacement for Oleksandr Zinchenko, who joined Arsenal, and becomes City’s fourth summer signing, after Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips and Stefan Ortega Moreno.

City turned their attention to Gomez, who has signed a four-year contract at the Etihad Stadium, after they were reluctant to pay Brighton’s asking price for Marc Cucurella, who instead signed for Chelsea in a deal that could cost £62 million.

Tottenham sign Destiny Udogie but the Italian returns to Udinese on loan

Tottenham have completed the £15 million signing of Destiny Udogie from Udinese but he has been immediately loaned back to his old club.

The teenager has been tracked by Spurs all summer and has signed a five-year deal with the Premier League side after initially flying into England at the weekend.

Udogie, who made 35 appearances for Udinese last season but sat out their opener with AC Milan on Saturday, stayed at Hotspur Way on Sunday before he completed a medical on Monday and finalized his transfer a day later.

He is Tottenham’s seventh signing of the summer but the left-back has returned to Italy in a similar fashion to Pape Matar Sarr, who joined Spurs last August but spent the 2021-22 campaign on loan with Metz.

The 27-year-old had emerged as a surprise target amid United’s summer long chase of Frenkie de Jong.

John Murtough, United’s football director, traveled to Turin last week in the hope of concluding negotiations with Rabiot’s representatives.
