Man Utd given boost in their pursuit of Sancho alternative

Man Utd have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of David Brooks, who could join the club this summer instead of Jadon Sancho.

Man Utd officials have become disillusioned with Dortmund over the pace of transfer talks and are now looking at alternatives.

Dortmund want to keep Sancho for at least another season and seem to be successfully holding off the English side at the moment.

United are instead targeting Brooks, who was recently relegated with Bournemouth.

They have now received a boost in their pursuit of the 23-year-old after Cherries manager Jason Tindall revealed the club wouldn’t stand in the way of players who want to leave.

Speaking to Bournemouth Echo, Tindall said: “We as a football club have got a value of what we believe for our players.

“And if that value is met then players have got the opportunity to then discuss with whoever they need to discuss with and then make the decision they feel is right for them.

“But first and foremost, it needs to be right for the football club and once it’s right for the football club then, as you’ve seen in the past, I don’t think it’s a club that will stand in anybody’s way… providing that it meets the valuation of the player.”

It looks like Tindall is willing to let Brooks go as long as Man Utd meet their valuation of the player.

Brooks is reportedly valued at a similar price to defender Nathan Ake, who recently joined Man City for £41 million.

The Welshman is a considerably cheaper option to Sancho and brings Premier League experience with him.

He had a poor season during the most recent campaign, but during the 2018/19 season he scored seven goals and assisted five more in just 30 league games.

Ronaldo urges Real Madrid to sign Mbappe instead of Neymar

Brazilian legend Ronaldo has urged his former club Real Madrid to sign Kylian Mbappe instead of Neymar.

Both players have been linked with a move to La Liga after dominating the French league with champions PSG in recent seasons.

The pair are set to play in tonight’s European final against Bayern as they aim for their first Champions League trophy.

And now, speaking at a Santander webinar (via Mirror), Ronaldo has urged Real to prioritise Mbappe ahead of his teammate: “Right now, it is not that one is better than another, but if Real Madrid had to make a big investment, they should do so thinking about the future.

“Neymar is 28 years old and Mbappe is 22. As an investment, it would be more logical to bring the younger [of the two].”

Neymar has previously been linked with Real as part of a potential swap deal for fellow Brazilian Vinicius Junior. He’s also been heavily linked with a return to Barcelona, where he played between 2013 and 2017.

Neymar signed for PSG for a reported £200 million and has since scored 47 goals for the club.

Meanwhile, Mbappe has mainly been linked with Real and Liverpool. The 21-year-old has already reached 51 goals for the French side, despite playing just 49 games.

His goalscoring abilities mean he’s now being touted as the future best player in world football.

Zidane’s side are yet to make a move for either player, despite the rumours. They will want to bring in some big signings this summer as they aim to retain the La Liga trophy next term.

Real fans will be hoping that star signing Eden Hazard begins to repay some of the money that the club paid for him. He was brought in for £103 million from Chelsea but only registered one goal during the 2019/20 season.

Hazard’s teammate Gareth Bale has been linked with a surprise loan return to Spurs this summer, after being phased out by Zidane.
