Transfer news LIVE: Neymar to Barcelona update with final offer demand, Dybala development | Football | Sport

Carragher on Pepe to Liverpool

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says the Reds didn’t sign Arsenal ace Nicolas Pepe as he’s too similar a player to Mohamed Salah.

“Nicolas Pepe normally plays from that right-hand side, coming inside on his left foot,” Carragher said on Sky Sports.

“That’s why Liverpool never took him, there was lots of speculation.

“He’s basically a Mo Salah-type player really in some ways on that side, coming in on his stronger foot.”

Final Neymar offers

Barcelona and Real Madrid were told by Paris Saint-German to submit their final offers for Neymar before midday on Friday, according to Spanish football pundit Guillem Balague.

He tweeted: “Barcelona AND Real Madrid have been asked to put a final offer before 12pm on Friday. Juventus also in the equation.

“The latest twist: in the last few days the relationship between #Neymar, his father/representative and #PSG has improved dramatically (in a VERY positive way).”

Neymar wants to return to La Liga, with Barcelona his preferred destination.

Dybala development

Paulo Dybala assured a Juventus fan he is going nowhere this summer.

The Juventus star has been tipped to join PSG if Neymar returns to La Liga in the coming days.

According to Spanish publication Sport, Dybala told a Juventus fan after a training session that he’s staying.

When asked if he’s leaving, Dybala said: “No, no.”

Arsenal exit

Nacho Monreal is close to joining La Liga side Real Sociedad, according to reports in Spain.

Arsenal extended the defender’s stay in the summer for another year but he could now be offloaded before September 2 when the Spanish transfer window closes.

Marca report the 33-year-old is close to signing a two- or three-year deal with Real Sociedad.

The Basque club are confident of completing the transfer next week.

Man Utd talks

Manchester United and Inter Milan will engage in further negotiations to accelerate the transfer of Alexis Sanchez on Monday.

Inter want to take the attacker on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

But how the two sides will split his wages caused negotiations to stall.

Italian outlet Calcio Mercato claim Monday is a key date for the deal and efforts will be ramped up to get it over the line.
