BLAISE MATUIDI

PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi says he’s unsure if he will be at the club next season, news which has encouraged the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.

Reports suggest that Jose Mourinho has highlighted the French international as the ideal partner for Paul Pogba – a move that could bring out the best in the world’s most expensive player.

The 30-year-old, who has a year left on his contract, has won four league titles after six seasons in the French capital.

RATING: 7/10

SPORT360 VERDICT: It’s a position that Mourinho will definitely want to strengthen this summer, and with Bernando Silva signing for rivals Manchester City, it looks likely that he could take the Frenchman to the Premier League.

DANI ALVES

Chelsea are weighing up a bid for Dani Alves, according to the Daily Mail.

The 34-year-old has one year left on his lucrative deal with Juventus and the report says there is an option for a third season.

However, the right back is said to be keen on a move to the Premier League and the Blues are believed to be eager on bringing the Brazilian to London.

RATING: 6/10

SPORT360 VERDICT: The former Barcelona defender has previously talked about a move to England and given his age, this probably represents his last opportunity to fulfill that ambition.

He’s undoubtedly been one of the best right backs in the world this season having been a central figure in Juve’s run to the Champions League final.

VICTOR LINDELOF

Manchester United will sign Victor Lindelof for £35m from Benfica this summer, according to the Sun.

The 23-year-old centre back came close to a move to Old Trafford in January but is expected to put pen to paper on a deal with the Red Devils this month.

Should the move go ahead, it will increase speculation over Chris Smalling’s future, with West Ham and West Brom said to be interested in securing the Englishman’s services.

RATING: 9/10

SPORT360 VERDICT: The Swedish international is expected to be United’s first signing of the summer. His commanding presence and solid approach will compliment Eric Bailly perfectly next season.
