Bellingham focused on BVB, insists Terzic
Borussia Dortmund manager Edin Terzic insisted that Jude Bellingham is focused on Borussia Dortmund despite entering advanced talks with Real Madrid.
"Now the news came from Spain, before that it came from England - I think before that it even came from France at one point. These are issues that we put in the context of Jude Bellingham - last year it was Erling, the year before it was Jadon. We've had a lot of experience with that over the last few years (laughs).
"And how I perceive him: Jude comes here every day and gives everything to become German champion at the end. I haven't even heard from him that he's involved with another club. We are much more concerned with how we can make him and the team better.
"That's the only topic I currently have with him. The rest are topics that have no place in the dressing room or the trainer's office. All we're concerned with right now is making sure we have something really nice to hold in our hands at the end of the season," he told reporters.
Blues in talks with Romeo Lavia over a summer move
Chelsea are pursuing Southampton enforcer Romeo Lavia in the summer window, with Football Insider claiming the 19-year-old is a priority signing for the club. Todd Boehly and Co. hope to sign Mauricio Pochettino soon, and have already started laying the groundwork for his first summer at Stamford Bridge.
The report adds the Blues are locked in talks with Lavia to lure him to west London this summer. The Pensioners will have to pay a reported £45m release clause to force the Saints' into a sale, though, given his contract at St. Mary's runs until 2027.
Man Utd plot Kane summer swoop and renew Rashford's deal to form a deadly striker duo
According to The Telegraph, Manchester United's contract talks with Marcus Rashford are making solid progress.
The Red Devils are making headway in persuading the Englishman to sign a new long-term contract. With the new contract, Rashford is expected to become the club's highest-paid player, with his salary similar to David de Gea's current £375,000-a-week wages.
Erik ten Hag wants Rashford to sign a new contract and hopes to integrate him alongside Harry Kane at Old Trafford next season. Man United are preparing to make a bid for the Tottenham Hotspur skipper, who is expected to cost at least £100m.
Qataris have no Man Utd transfer plans yet
Sheikh Jassim is focused on buying Manchester United but he has no transfer targets for the summer window if his bid for the club is accepted.
A week after submitting his third and final bid for United, he is still waiting to hear back from Raine, the bank who have been appointed by the Glazer family to sell all or part of the club.
Sheikh Jassim's bid team have drawn up plans about how they would run United but their focus on investment has not included identifying any transfer targets.
Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe's bids are below the £6 billion asking price but both bids are a massive premium on the club’s market cap on the New York Stock Exchange at the moment — £2.5 billion. The bids are both believed to value United at close to £5 billion.
As Sheikh Jassim is the only bid on the table for 100 per cent of the club, he will not be bidding against himself.
