Alisson edges closer to Chelsea

Cristiano Ronaldo GETTY Cristiano Ronaldo has been hounded by transfer rumours

Marco Asensio will not be leaving Real Madrid this summer, despite interest from Liverpool.

If United do bid for the 28-year-old German worldwide he won't come cheap.

According to OK Diario, the club have reached an agreement with Ronaldo what will see his release clause - an obligatory clause in Spanish football contracts - drop from €1bn to "only" €120m.

The report claims that should United make a bid, Real would nearly certainly accept it; and all parties want the move. The Juventus defender played for two seasons under Sarri at Empoli and earlier this week it was reported Chelsea had made a $46.3 million bid for the Italy worldwide.

As well as Alisson, Chelsea are also keen on Russian Federation star Aleksandr Golovin.

Jack Wilshere's Arsenal contract expires this weekend and it's reported that he will sign a deal with Turkish club Fenerbahce on Monday.

But in a dramatic turn of events, it's now surfaced that Real have decided to make the five-time Ballon d'Or victor available for €120m, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain said to be front-runners for his signature. The 31-year-old has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain.

According to The Sun, Sarri's appointment is what Daniele Rugani's move to Chelsea hinges on. "After that, we can proceed with the negotiations and make them more or less concrete".

Elsewhere, the Daily Mirror claims Everton are looking at Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney as a replacement for Leighton Baines, while West Brom are angry with Watford for offering just $1.3 million for Ben Foster, way short of their $13 million valuation.

Wayne Rooney last night completed his move from Everton to DC United. "I have been really excited with the project DC have put together and what they presented to me - so that was the reason to come to DC".
