Transfer Rumour: Manchester United plotting late move for Kurt Zouma

Transfer Rumour: Manchester United plotting late move for Kurt Zouma

The Colombian global completed a £28.5million switch from Barcelona on Thursday, having been the subject of heavy interest from Manchester United and Lyon.

United were also said to be put off by the conduct of Mina's representatives during negotiations while they also rejected a proposal that included Portugal midfielder Andre Gomes, who also joined Everton on deadline day from Barcelona. He signed a deal worth up to £100,000 per week that runs until June 2023.

Ousmane Dembele has brushed off speculation linking him with a move this summer, saying, "I'm staying at Barcelona" during a live broadcast with French online streamer FM_Guru. He also scored on one occasion for the Potters. While a €60 million buy-back clause seems extremely high, if Mina reaches the heights many predict, the clause would represent a canny piece of business. 'This is why I am here. I am also determined to do my best for Everton'. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here. "I know not only Nuno but some new players they have bought".

It emerged earlier today that Manchester United have approached Atletico Madrid to discuss the possibility of taking Godin to England this summer before the Premier League transfer window closes.

Zouma is understood to not be in new boss Maurizio Sarri's plans and he is keen to move to the Toffees to play Premier League football.
