Arsenal Agree to Tammy Abraham’s Demands

  Arsenal are ready to meet the wage demands of Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, according to the Daily Express. The Gunners are very keen to land the 23-year-old this summer. Abraham has always scored for Chelsea and shown his ability during loan spells at Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa. But Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, is unconvinced and left the forward out of a number of his matchday squads last season. A potential stumbling block in Abraham’s move to Arsenal was his wage demands. He is currently earning £80,000 a week and wants to be paid £125,000. Arsenal have now made it clear during talks that they are prepared to meet the player’s demands, as Mikel Arteta looks to bolster his attacking options. Abraham has scored 30 goals in 82 appearanc...

Real Madrid defender, Varane agrees on terms with Man Utd

  Real Madrid defender, Raphael Varane, has agreed on personal terms with Manchester United, the UK Express reports. However, the stumbling block remains his transfer fee. After wrapping up their move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side looks set to bring Varane to the club. However, Los Blancos are yet to agree to the transfer fee for the France international, which will slow down any potential move. Madrid is reluctant to allow Varane to leave in the same window where mercurial captain Sergio Ramos has left on a free transfer. The 28-year-old will be available to sign on a free transfer next summer and he is expected to be available for €60 million (£51.5m).

UEFA Sets Deadline for Changing Venue of Champions League Final

UEFA will decide whether to change the venue of the Champions League final on Wednesday, according to the UK Times. The European football governing body will meet with the FA and UK government officials on Monday. The discussion will centre around arrangements for the match between Chelsea and Manchester City on May 29. Currently, the game is scheduled to be played at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, but Turkey is on the UK’s travel red list and fans have been told not to travel, “except in the most extreme circumstances”. The UK government wants the match to be moved to London, but a stumbling block is that the Championship play-off final is also due to be held on 29 May. However, the EFL have said they would consider moving the fixture to accommodate the Champions...

Man Utd, Real Madrid jump into Barcelona Lautaro batt

Manchester United are eyeing Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez. The Marca says United and Real Madrid are reportedly monitoring Lautaro Martinez as talks between Barcelona and Inter Milan for the striker have reached a stumbling block. Martinez, 22, looked destined to leave the Italian giants for Camp Nou this summer, with personal terms believed to be agreed. But the transfer is now in doubt with Barcelona unwilling to meet the Argentine's £99million release clause. Instead, the Catalan club are understood to have offered £62million plus left-back Junior Firpo, who they value at £37million. However, talks have reached a standstill with Inter insisting on having the entire fee paid up front. And with negotiations at a deadlock, the report adds that Manchester United an...
