Cristiano Ronaldo ‘worried’ by Man Utd’s slow transfer window, Antony £40m deal EXCLUSIVE, Edson Alvarez latest

CRISTIANO RONALDO is reportedly concerned by Man Utd’s transfer window so far.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is said to be worried that the Red Devils will fall further behind the likes of Liverpool and Man City, who have signed Darwin Nunez and Erling Haaland respectively.

The report from Spain adds that Ronaldo, 37, would like what could be his last season at the highest level to be a trophy-winning campaign.

Meanwhile, Man Utd could perform a SECOND swoop for an Ajax star this week with Antony and Edson Alvarez moves being touted.

Antony remains the higher-priority transfer but Mexico star Alvarez is also on United’s radar – along with Chelsea’s and Barcelona’s.

SunSport revealed earlier this week that United are close to landing a £40million deal for the Amsterdam-club’s winger Antony.

Meanwhile, traffic police in Majorca have launched an investigation after Cristiano Ronaldo’s £1.7m Bugatti Veyron crashed into a wall on the island.

It did not seem to matter a jot to the world’s most-famous athlete though, as he danced for his niece’s TikTok.

  • Antony asking price

    Ajax will demand £40million for Manchester United transfer target Antony.

    That’s the claim from the Netherlands as the forward tops new United chief Erik ten Hag’s list of wing targets.

    Ten Hag also fancies Edson Alvarez, Jurrien Timber and Lisandro Martinez from his former club.

  • Pogba’s hero’s welcome

    Former Manchester United star Paul Pogba has swapped his Old Trafford woes for a hero’s reception in Guinea.

    Pogba has ended his underwhelming six-year stay at United and appears set to rejoin Juventus on a four-year deal.

    The midfielder received a rapturous welcome as he visited his parents’ Guinean home country on Tuesday.

    Thousands of fans turned out to greet the France international as he paraded through capital city Conakry in an open-topped vehicle.

  • Neville slams Glazers

    Manchester United legend Gary Neville slammed the Glazers’ plan to take £11million in dividends from the club and urged them to invest in the stadium and training ground instead.

    Neville tweeted: “The Glazer Family should NOT be taking £11m in dividends this Friday.

    “It isn’t right with the investment needed in the team, stadium and training ground.

    “The club’s cash position is low compared to previous years. An announcement is needed to halt it for the next three years minimum”

  • Real target Garnacho

    Real Madrid are keeping tabs on Manchester United wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho after earning praise from Lionel Messi.

    Garnacho enjoyed a breakout season with United’s Under-18s as he registered a total of 14 goals and six assists in 34 appearances across all competitions.

    The winger is now being tipped for a first-team role under new boss Erik ten Hag and the Red Devils are set to offer him a new lucrative deal.

    According to DefensaCentral, however, Real are keeping tabs on the Argentina international’s contract negotiations as they could swoop in.

    The 17-year-old earned an unexpected call-up by Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni.

    The Argentine never managed to start for United’s first team but he still got to train alongside his country’s finest and earned admiration from Messi himself.

  • Maguire to stay

    Manchester United are set to keep Harry Maguire at Old Trafford this summer.

    But Maguire could be in danger of losing the captain’s armband under new manager Erik ten Hag.

    According to the Mail, the centre-back’s captaincy situation is “up in the air”.

    While the Red Devils will keep the England international, they could look to flog any of Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe.

    Should they successfully clear room, the Manchester giants will go after another centre-back this summer

  • Man Utd’s Kie signing

    Manchester United are set to launch a mega-money bid for Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong.

    Mundo Deportivo report that United manager Erik ten Hag is desperate to finally land his first signing.

    And an offer worth £65million plus add-ons is set to be made this week for the midfielder

    The offer could be enough to tempt broke Barca into selling the Netherlands international.

    They told United earlier this month to cough up £74m for the 25-year-old.

    But the add-ons from the Red Devils’ offer may total up to hit that figure

  • Fabian Ruiz transfer war

    Arsenal and Newcastle lead the transfer race ahead of Manchester United and Manchester City for Napoli ace Fabian Ruiz.

    That’s the claim from Corriere dello Sport, who state the Partenopei want £26million for Ruiz.

    The Serie A giants still hope to keep the 26-year-old but may cash in this summer as he only has one year left on his contract.

    The Spain international, who is also targeted by United, amassed a total of seven goals and five assists in 38 appearances across all competitions last season

  • Eriksen transfer boost

    Tottenham look set to reject the chance to re-sign former star Christian Eriksen, who has been linked with Manchester United.

    Eriksen, who spent seven seasons at Spurs between 2013-2020, will soon be a free agent when his short-term contract at Brentford expires on June 30.

    A romantic return to North London had been touted but SunSport understands Antonio Conte’s side is likely to focus on other targets instead.

    This leaves the path clear for the likes of United and Brentford to fight it out for the services of the 30-year-old, who is understood to be seeking a relatively long-term deal

  • Martial-Bailly situation

    Manchester United are looking to offload Anthony Martial and Eric Bailly in the summer transfer window.

    United are having a nightmare trying to find a buyer for Martial due to his sky-high wages.

    Thus, the Red Devils are ready to accept a big hit on the £38.5million they paid for him with cut-price offers of around £20m ready to be heard.

    The Manchester giants are also actively trying to find a buyer for Bailly having offered him to Newcastle but that was met with a lukewarm response.

    As with Martial, United are ready to take a hit on the 28-year-old with an asking price of just £8.5million

  • Man Utd clearout

    Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has suggested his former club could sell at least two defenders in a huge transfer clear-out this summer.

    Ferdinand told his Vibe with Five YouTube show: “I’ll be interested to see what Ten Hag does in that area.

    “We’re talking about the young lad, [Jurrien] Timber, at Ajax, a small centre-half.

    “I’ll be interested to see what happens with [Raphael] Varane, [Victor] Lindelof and [Harry] Maguire, [Eric] Bailly as well, I think one or two of those will go”

  • Cristiano Ronaldo “worried”

    Cristiano Ronaldo is “worried” about Manchester United’s transfer business this summer.

    That is according to AS, who report that Ronaldo is apprehensive about the upcoming campaign, which could mark one of his last at elite level.

    The 37-year-old forward reportedly believes there should be more reinforcement after United experienced their worst ever Premier League season.

    That becomes even more critical amid their rivals’ ongoing business with Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez joining Manchester City and Liverpool respectively this month

  • Man Utd’s Bach-up plan

    Manchester United are eyeing a shock swoop for Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann.

    A backup to David De Gea is on United manager Erik Ten Hag’s shopping list, with Dean Henderson closing in on a switch to Nottingham Forest.

    And United are considering a move for Bachmann, according to GOAL.

    The 27-year-old played 13 times for the Hornets last season, and largely played second fiddle to Ben Foster between the sticks at Vicarage Road.

    It’s claimed a deal worth £4million would be enough to seal a swoop for the Austria international

    Frank told AS: “I know we still have a chance and I hope he will make a decision in two weeks.

    “The agreement is that he will call me and tell me what he wants to do. He hasn’t decided yet”

  • Ajax to discuss Alvarez move

    Ajax could now be willing to ‘negotiate’ a price for Manchester United transfer target Edson Alvarez .

    New United manager Erik ten Hag fancies reuniting with Alvarez after leaving the Dutch champions.

    According to De Telegraaf journalist Mike Verweij, Ten Hag’s old club are prepared to discuss a possible fee for selling the 24-year-old midfielder.

    In contrast, it’s claimed Ajax are unwilling to sell three other reported United targets Antony, Jurrien Timber and Lisandro Martinez – except for major offers

  • Man Utd close to Antony

    Manchester United are closing in on their first major signing of the summer with Antony on his way from Ajax in a £40million move.

  • Morning, United fans

    United could bid £60million for Porto striker Evanilson – as Erik ten Hag eyes FIVE of his old Ajax players.

    Evanilson’s agent Marcio Barros says only Brighton have so far made a formal offer for the Brazilian.

    But the 22-year-old is reportedly now one of Old Trafford chief Ten Hag’s prime targets up front.

    Ajax could now be willing to ‘negotiate’ a price for Mexico midfield anchorman Edson Alvarez.

    United are also interested in recruiting Brazil winger Antony, Holland defender Jurrien Timber and Argentina centre-back Lisandro Martinez from the Dutch giants.

    But it’s claimed Ajax will only sell any of the trio if an exceptional bid comes in.

    Most of the talk in the past 24 hours surrounds Anthony – with a £40million fee suggested.

    The fifth former Ajax star on United’s list remains Frenkie de Jong.

    But the £50m-rated Holland midfielder still seems intent on staying at Barcelona.

    Brentford playmaker is ‘undecided’ on his future – as the Red Devils and old club Tottenham hover.

    Finally, United are struggling to offload frontman Anthony Martial and central defender Eric Bailly because of their high wages.

  • Utd have ‘direct’ contact’ with Barca over De Jong

    Manchester United have reportedly had ‘direct contact’ with Barcelona over main target Frenkie de Jong.

    But the Spanish giants are said to be holding firm on their £74million valuation of the Holland midfielder.

    New Old Trafford chief Erik ten Hag is also thought to want another four of his old Ajax players.

    But those stars are all still with the Dutch champions.

  • Hard to Baill out

    United are actively trying to offload centre-back Eric Bailly.

    But they got a lukewarm response when they offered him to Newcastle.

    Having signed a new contract in April 2021 he still has two years left of his current contract.

    As with Martial, United are ready to take a hit on the 28-year-old with an asking price of just £8.5million for a player who costs them £30million from Villarreal in 2016.

  • Martial flaw

    EXCLUSIVE: Manchester United are having a nightmare trying to find a buyer for Anthony Martial due to his sky-high wages, writes NEIL CUSTIS.

    United are ready to accept a big hit on the £38.5million they paid for him with offers of around £20million ready to be heard.

    But the Frenchman’s £240,000-a-week wages are proving a massive stumbling block to any move with no club prepared to match that.

    Martial still has two years left on that deal which means United may have to agree to a pay off to get him out of Old Trafford.

    Sevilla in La Liga showed interest last season when they took him on a fourth month loan in the second-half of last season.

  • Palace tipped to win Sam race

    Manchester United and Tottenham target Sam Johnstone has reportedly agreed to join Crystal Palace on a free transfer.

    The keeper, 29, will leave West Brom when his contract expires at the end of this month.

    He joined the club from United in 2018 and has since made 167 appearances across all competitions for the Baggies.

    However, his desire to make a Premier League return meant he did not consider signing a new contract.

    And according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, he has a deal in place to join Crystal Palace.

    Johnstone, who will become Patrick Vieira’s first signing of the summer, will join Vicente Guaita and Jack Butland as an option between the sticks.
