  • Marcus Alonso, a target for Manchester United, has “made his choice” on a prospective switch from Barcelona to Old Trafford. The 32-year-old Spaniard is seen by the Red Devils as a replacement for Luke Shaw, as Shaw is injured. United has also shortlisted 25-year-old Chelsea and Spain full-back Marc Cucurella in addition to Alonso. 
  • Matheus Nunes, a midfielder for Wolverhampton Wolves and Portugal, is on the verge of signing for Manchester City after the club made an increased offer for the 25-year-old.
