Keep up to date with all the latest transfer news, views and rumours from the Premier League and beyond.

Manchester United are facing a fight to convince Cristiano Ronaldo to stay after it emerged at the weekend that the Portuguese superstar has asked to leave Old Trafford.

United don’t want the 37-year-old to go and are set to hold crunch talks this week when he returns for pre-season training after failing to report to the club’s Carrington training base on Monday due to family reasons.

Elsewhere, new boss Erik ten Hag also hopes to tie up deals for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez, Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong and Feyenoord full-back Tyrell Malacia.

Mohamed Salah, meanwhile, has ended speculation around his future by signing a new £350k-a-week contract with Liverpool.

Arsenal took their time, but they have finally announced the signing of Gabriel Jesus from Man City an hour before the champions unveiled new signing Kalvin Phillips.

Christian Eriksen’s return to football following his collapse at Euro 2020 is astonishing enough – but now he could be on the verge of signing for one of the Premier League giants.

The former Spurs midfielder helped turn Brentford‘s season around after signing on deadline day in January, providing four assists across his six-month stint and was a key man in the demolition of Chelsea.

But just over a year ago, Eriksen‘s chances of ever kicking a ball again looked slim.

The Denmark international suddenly collapsed and suffered a cardiac arrest while playing for his country against Finland in their opening game of Euro 2020 last summer.

He survived as a result of fast and expertly-delivered CPR along with the use of an on-site defibrillator, much to the sheer relief of many onlookers who feared the absolute worst.

Eriksen was later fitted with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) which will automatically restore his heart’s rhythm should a concerning pattern develop again.

However, it wasn’t rosy just yet.

Following the fitting of the device, Eriksen – then playing for Inter – was no longer allowed to play for the Serie A side, as players with significant heart abnormalities are banned from competing in Italy.

With the likes of Manchester City hero Sergio Aguero having to retire in December due to heart problems, it wouldn’t have been a surprise if Eriksen also hung up his boots.

But in January, Brentford gave the star midfielder a chance, and the 30-year-old has been edging closer and closer to being back to his best ever since.

So much so that he could be playing for one of the Premier League’s biggest clubs as soon as next season.

Eriksen made a name for himself in England after his seven year spell with Tottenham, scoring 69 goals and making 90 assists in 305 games.

Now, reports suggest he is heading to Old Trafford where Erik ten Hag has begun a new era at United.

And given Ten Hag will need to rebuild the Red Devils’ midfield with Paul Pogba and Juan Mata both leaving, Eriksen could be the perfect investment for United.

When he was fighting for his life last June, United forward Marcus Rashford was among those praying he would pull through.

He’s done more than that and could soon call each other teammates, with Eriksen even hoping to play at the World Cup later this year.

“That’s been my mindset all along. It’s a goal, a dream,” he told Danish station DR1 in early January.

However, despite the upcoming squad overhaul and change in manager, talkSPORT’s Gabby Agbonlahor believes the Dane should avoid going to Old Trafford after their below-par season.

“I think he’d [Eriksen] make every team better. Imagine playing with him, the runs you could make, he’d find you with his passing,” the former Aston Villa man said on Wednesday’s talkSPORT Breakfast.

“I’m sure he’s got so many options and there’s talk about Manchester United, but I don’t know about that. I think he can do better than United.”

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy isn’t sure about the move to United either, but more because he doesn’t believe he will be a regular starter.

It remains to be seen where Eriksen will be playing next season, but it’s nothing short of astounding that he is on the verge of completing a full circle back to competing in international tournaments just one year after his collapse.

And wherever he ends up at next season, his inspirational recovery will certainly go down in football history.

An investigation is to be launched into allegations of racist abuse in the crowd during England’s fifth Test against India at Edgbaston.

Officials have vowed to look into social media claims, which have been highlighted by former Yorkshire cricketer Azeem Rafiq, of discriminatory language by spectators on day four of the Test on Monday.

The allegations have somewhat marred what’s been a thrilling Test match

Responding to the allegations, a post on Edgbaston’s official Twitter account read: “We’re incredible sorry to read this and do not condone this behaviour in anyway. We’ll be investigating this ASAP.”

Rafiq retweeted a thread detailing some of the incidents along with the comment: “Disappointing to read”.

The PA news agency has contacted Edgbaston and the England and Wales Cricket Board for comment.

Rafiq’s testimony in front of a parliamentary select committee last year sparked an investigation into his claims of institutional racism at Yorkshire which resulted in ECB charges and ultimately major reforms.

The latest incidents came as England mounted a superb fightback, which left them well-placed to complete a remarkable series-saving victory on Tuesday.

India began day four on 125-3 but England’s attack made a fine start to day four, bowling the tourists out for 245.

Set 378 to win, England had reduced their target to 119 by the close of play on day four with seven wickets in hand, courtesy of an unbeaten fourth-wicket stand of 150 between Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow, who will resume on 76 not out and 72 not out respectively.

A win for England would see the five-match series finish 2-2. The series started last summer but the Edgbaston Test was postponed after India withdrew over COVID concerns.

Barcelona may have entered the race to sign Cristiano Ronaldo with the player’s agent understood to have met with the club’s president.

Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United has been thrown into huge doubt amid reports he has asked to leave the club as he wants to play for a club competing in next season’s Champions League.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with the Portuguese star, with new owner Todd Boehly understood to be pondering a Galactico style summer window with Raheem Sterling also set to complete a move from Manchester City.

However, Spanish outlet AS reports that Barcelona are interested in securing Ronaldo’s services.

Jorge Mendes, who represents Ronaldo, also has the likes of Bernardo Silva and Ruben Neves on his books but the report says Ronaldo’s availability was discussed in his meeting with Barca president Joan Laporta.

It’s understood Barcelona were interested in bringing Ronaldo on board last summer but their delicate financial situation prevented them from mounting a serious bid.

However, it could also be a ploy to up the ante with Bayern Munich as they try to finalise a deal to sign striker Robert Lewandowski, who is understood to be Barcelona’s priority signing up front.

Chelsea will certainly hope this is the case having had their bid for Leeds star Raphinha hijacked by the LaLiga giants.

This would be some move for Ronaldo, who played for Barca’s biggest rivals, Real Madrid, for nine years

talkSPORT understands that the Red Devils are adamant that he won’t be leaving with one year left on his contract, however, his absence from training on Monday due to ‘family reasons’ has added fuel to the fire as his future becomes a huge topic of conversation.

Man United fans will feel nervous about the prospect of seeing one of their greatest ever players go.

However, talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan and Danny Murphy suggested Ronaldo leaving could be a ‘blessing in disguise’ for Erik ten Hag’s men.

Everton have made an approach to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea this summer.

The Toffees are looking to kick on after narrowly avoiding relegation last term with Frank Lampard determined to push the club up the Premier League table this term.

As part of their plans to rebuild, Everton have been tasked with raising funds, something that they managed by offloading Richarlison to Tottenham for a fee reported to be in the region of £60million.

As a result the club are looking for a new striker with Broja among those targeted, Sky Sports reports.

The 20-year-old came through the youth ranks with Chelsea and made his break into English football in the 2021/22 season with a loan spell at Southampton.

During his time on the south coast, Broja managed nine goals in 38 appearances in all competitions, an impressive tally given his tender age.

As a result, interest has been building in the Blues’ starlet with the likes of West Ham United and Newcastle also linked with a move.

The Hammers are one of a number of clubs looking for a striker ahead of the new season and according to Anton Ferdinand, Broja has all of the qualities needed to be a success.

Ferdinand believes that Broja would be a top addition for David Moyes’ West Ham

Asked if a move for Broja would appeal, Ferdinand told The Boot Room: “Yeah I do.

“He’s not as quick as [Michail] Antonio but in terms of hold up play and being a focal point of a team, he’s got the attributes to be that.

“For the way that West Ham play, I see it being a good fit and as he proved in the first half of last season, he knows where the goal is.”

Duncan Ferguson has left his role at Everton in order to pursue a career in management.

The 50-year-old is a legend at Goodison Park, making 273 appearances for the club during two spells on Merseyside.

Since hanging up his boots, Ferguson has served on the backroom staff of numerous managers, most recently being assistant manager to Frank Lampard at the club.

Having had a taste of being the Toffees’ interim boss, the Scottish coach is now putting all of his focus into securing a managerial role for himself.

Speaking to Everton TV, Ferguson said: “It’s been a massive decision for me. An incredibly difficult one but I need to move on, to take that next step in my career and look for that new challenge.

“Being a caretaker manager has given me confidence to step into management.

“The club has been fantastic with me. They’ve supported me all the way through my journey.

“You’ve got the chairman who has supported me as a player and as a coach.

“He’s been amazing with me, so I would like to thank him. And then there’s people like our CEO Denise [Barrett-Baxendale] who has been fantastic.

“It really is a caring club with some proper people in it. They’re massive Evertonians.

“And, of course, there’s the fans. They’ve been incredible to me since I came in ’94. We’ve got a strong bond.

“The relationship we’ve had over the years has been special. They know how much they mean to me. I’ll always love them.”

A Premier League footballer has been arrested on suspicion of rape.

The international player, who is 29 years old, was detained at a north London address in the early hours of Monday morning.

The player cannot be named for legal reasons

Scotland Yard confirmed the footballer, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is currently in custody.

He is being interviewed by police over an alleged attack, which is said to have taken place in June.

The player’s club has declined to comment.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police read: “On 4 July, an allegation of rape of a woman in her 20s was reported to police.

“It was reported the alleged rape happened in June 2022. On 4 July, a 29-year-old man was arrested at an address in Barnet on suspicion of rape and taken into custody where he remains.”

Enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing.

It’s unclear whether the player will take part in his club’s pre-season fixture schedule.

Chelsea’s Todd Boehly era could soon have a Galactico feel about it with news that the club have been offered both Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.

Representatives of the Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain superstars are believed to have made contact with the Blues new owner in an effort to find unlikely landing spots.

The American billionaire is yet to make a signing since taking control of the club from Roman Abramovich, however, it appears some intermediaries think Chelsea may be one of a limited number of teams that could afford their clients.

Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is believed to be among those, with an evolving story emerging that the Portuguese superstar could well be set to depart Old Trafford just a year after a blockbuster return.

Reports from The Athletic claimed Mendes had met Boehly in Portugal over a potential deal for Ronaldo, which is now being considered after the 37-year-old missed the first day of training at United due to ‘family reasons’.

And it’s now been reported that the five-time Champions League winner wants to return to the competition where he made his name after United failed to land a top four spot last season.

The Daily Telegraph adds that Boehly will ask Blues manager Thomas Tuchel if he’d like Ronaldo on board.

Representatives of the Red Devils have acted to deny that Ronaldo is for sale, but a move may be forced with the forward desperate for more trophy success after a season from hell.

Conversely, roles are reversed with Neymar and PSG, with the French side open to shifting their £606,000-per week superstar Brazilian as they take a different tact in their chase for an elusive Champions League title.

An overhaul in Paris has seen Luis Campos named football advisor, with Nice coach Christophe Galtier set to join him as the club steps away from overspending on superstars.

And that could mean curtains for Neymar, if a landing spot can be found, with Chelsea a potential destination if Boehly is convinced.

The American recently named himself interim sporting director following the departure of Marina Granovskaia, and is set to seal a £45million deal for Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling according to the Evening Standard.

They also claim Thomas Tuchel promised as many as six new signings with his squad in need of repair following the departures of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Romelu Lukaku.
