Manchester United ‘to rival’ Tottenham for Luiz Diaz and more transfer rumours
Manchester United have reportedly entered the race to sign a Tottenham Hotspur target.
Porto’s Luis Diaz is believed to be highly-rated by Antonio Conte and it is claimed the Italian is attempting to sign the winger this January.
However newspaper Record, via Sport Witness, are claiming that United are now entering the race for the 25-year-old’s signature.
It’s reported that United are ‘truly in play’ for Diaz having sent scouts to watch him last weekend.
It is also believed Diaz might favour a move to Old Trafford due to Portugal stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot featuring in the squad. Diaz is Colombian but has played a lot of football in Portugal.
A fee of more than €45m could be enough to secure the services of Diaz who has 16 goals in 28 appearances to his name this season.
Elsewhere, reports are suggesting that Crystal Palace will have competition from clubs in Spain and Italy if they want to sign Donny van de Beek.
According to ESPN, talks are currently ongoing between the Selhurst Park side and United over the loan transfer of the Dutch midfielder.
United are said to be keen on receiving a loan fee and are hoping whoever signs him will be willing to cover the player’s wage as well.
Manchester Evening News understands that Van de Beek is currently ‘upset’ with his situation at United.
