Manchester United transfer news and rumours: Radja Nainggolan refuses to rule out Old Trafford switch
All the latest Manchester United transfer news and rumours from across the British and European press on Thursday, June 8.
Reported Manchester United target Radja Nainggolan has refused to rule out a move to Old Trafford from Roma, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Belgium international has been linked with a move to the Premier League following an excellent season in Serie A, scoring 11 goals for Roma.
When asked about interest from United, Nainggolan said: “It may be true. It may not be true,” said the 29-year-old. “We’ll see. I am going on holiday and then we will talk about it.
“My thoughts are to go on holiday and relax myself, I am not thinking about my future right now. I’ve spoken enough about this and what I want. I have made a promise [to Roma] that I intend to maintain; now it’s up to other people.”
Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney is in danger of pricing himself out of an emotional return to Everton, according to the Daily Star.
Rooney has revealed his first club Everton are the only other English club he would play for, but it appears Ronald Koeman, who has shown an interest in the striker, is not willing to break the club’s wage structure to sign the 31-year-old.
Also in the Daily Star, Lazio star Felipe Anderson has admitted he dreams of playing for a team like United.
Finally, United are ready to hand Real Madrid an ultimatum over striker Alvaro Morata, writes the Daily Mirror.
United boss Jose Mourinho reportedly does not want to pay more than £60m for his top striker target and is putting pressure on the Champions League winners to sell.
However, Real are thought to want £78m for the Spain international.
