Hello football fans
Manchester United are plotting a £25m move to sign Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos, SunSport can reveal.
Ramos, 21, has scored eight goals and registered five assists in 12 appearances this season.
It comes with Erik ten Hag keen to continue his Man United squad redevelopment and increase the Red Devils’ firepower.
Elsewhere, Barcelona are plotting a sensational move for Real Madrid star Marco Asensio.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Xavi and Co would like to sign soon-to-be-out-of-contract Real ace Asensio as their next marquee signing.
Asensio, 26, will be out of contract at the Bernabeu next summer and could leave for free.
The report goes on to say that if his contractual situation is the same in the winter transfer window, then Barca might decide to act.
And Premier League clubs are reportedly considering plans to SCRAP FA Cup replays.
It’s part of a ‘New Deal for Football’, which could also see teams take on U21 teams in the Carabao Cup.
The Times says the proposals are at the heart of discussions at the Premier League’s shareholders’ meeting on Wednesday.
Discussions will take place on ideas to potentially provide £250million in additional funds to the EFL while reforming parachute payments.
And one proposal is to permanently cut FA Cup replays in the third and fourth rounds from 2024.
As for the Carabao Cup, teams playing in Europe could field their U21s in a bid to freshen up the competition – or even withdraw altogether.
