Man Utd set for surprise signing

Manchester United are set to appoint former England midfielder Tom Huddlestone as a hybrid U23 player-coach, The Telegraph report.

The Red Devils want to replace Paul McShane, who has moved solely into coaching, after the success of his move last season.

Academy head Nick Cox introduced the presence of an experienced professional to help standards in training and believes McShane brought major value during his time at the club.

Chelsea’s £108m triple deal

Chelsea are in talks over a triple raid of Serie A giants Inter Milan as Thomas Tuchel continues to look to Italy for summer reinforcements.

The Blues could make as many as four more signings in their transfer window under new ownership as Tuchel prepares for his second full season as head coach.

According to Calciomercato, Chelsea are vying to sign right-back Denzel Dumfries, centre-back Milan Skriniar and midfield starlet Cesare Casadei.

The report adds that moves for all three stars would accumulate to around £103m – Skriniar (£59m), Dumfries (34m) and Casadei (£10m).
