Transfer Gossip: Man United in for Coutinho and Calabria as Zidane edges closer to Juventus
Manchester United are reported to be after AC Milan right-back Davide Calabria and Barcelona forward Phillipe Coutinho while Juventus have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Zinedine Zidane after Chelsea's transfer ban was upheld.
According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United are monitoring AC Milan right-back, Davide Calabria, as they look to replace veteran Antonio Valencia. United have struggled in the right-back position this season with Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian all failing to secure first-team positions. Ashley Young has been deployed in the role while Diogo Dalot is viewed as one for the future.
Barcelona forward Philippe Coutinho has spoken to some of Manchester United's players, revealing to them that he wants an £86m transfer, according to the Daily Star. Coutinho has struggled to replicate the form he once displayed at Liverpool since his £142 million move. The attacking midfielder has only scored four La Liga goals in the current campaign and has been in and out of the team.
Juventus have been handed a massive boost in their pursuit of former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane after Chelsea's transfer ban was upheld by FIFA, this is according to The Express. Zinedine Zidane has recently paid a visit to Turin, adding fuel to the fire of rumors linking him to be the next Juventus manager.
