Everton eye bargain Sneijder swoop ? report

Everton are said to be lining up a shock move for Galatasaray’s Wesley Sneijder, according to reports in the Turkish media.

According to Turkish media outlet Haberler, Sneijder has been a long-term target of teams such as Manchester United but is now drawing in interest from Everton.

The reports also claim that the Dutch international could be available for a bargain fee and  would most certainly be affordable for Ronald Koeman.

Turkish newspaper, SonDakika say that in his current contract with Galatasaray, Sneijder’s release clause is only £5.7million and the Merseyside club are looking to trigger it.

Also according to the reports, the Turkish giants maybe be looking to reduce their wage bill due to the financial fair play regulations and could look to offload the former Real Madrid man to do so.

Everton’s new manager Koeman has previously worked with the midfielder whilst at Ajax and the signing would certainly be a coup for Everton, although his wage demands may prove to be more of a stumbling block than the transfer fee.

The attacking midfielder has endured a fine career to date playing for the likes Ajax, Real Madrid and Inter Milan. Throughout his career the Dutchman has gone on to win league titles in the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Turkey, including a Champions League triumph for Inter Milan in 2010.

Sneijder has even gone on to accumulate a total of 19 domestic honours and would be welcomed addition at Goodison as Koeman looks to spend some of his rumoured £100million transfer war chest.

Paper Talk: Man Utd increase Mkhitaryan bid; Bale future

Manchester United have made an increased offer to Borussia Dortmund for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, while Real Madrid plan to offer Gareth Bale a lengthy new deal, according to reports in Wednesday’s newspapers.




Manchester United have made an increased £28million move for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Daily Mirror claims United have upped the ante in their attempts to land the Borussia Dortmund midfielder with a significantly improved second offer.

And there is increasing confidence a deal for Mkhitaryan will be agreed, according to sources close to the negotiations. His agent stated earlier this week he is doing his best to engineer his player a move to Old Trafford, despite Dortmund’s resistance.

New boss Jose Mourinho has earmarked the 27-year-old Armenian as one of his next big-money targets.

And United’s determination to land Mkhitaryan for Mourinho is reflected in the size of their follow-up bid and quick response to having their initial £19m offer knocked back.

Having gone three years without the title and after missing out on Champions League qualification for the second time in three seasons, the Red Devils are in a hurry to get back to the top and determined to make sure they are ready to hit the ground running next season under Mourinho.

They also want to show they have learnt from the lessons of the last three summers when they have wasted precious time on ultimately failed pursuits of unobtainable players.

United are now focusing on more realistic transfer targets and want to move quickly to bring them in, the paper adds.



Gareth Bale: Mind games

Gareth Bale will return to Spain after the European Championship to a ‘contract for life’ at Real Madrid, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The news will scupper the interest from Premier League powerhouses but shows once again the growing presence of Bale as one of the world’s very best players.

Bale, 26, can expect a deal stretching way beyond his 30th birthday. Although it is yet to be formally confirmed, the paper claims the length of his new contract could be as long as seven years. Madrid will also make him one of the highest-paid players in the world.

He is expected to emerge as the face of Real Madrid in future seasons, ahead even of team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, who has struggled in this tournament.

Bale cost Madrid around £85million in 2013 and that made him the world’s most expensive player. That fee is expected to come under threat if and when Paul Pogba leaves Juventus this summer.

Madrid themselves are favourites to sign the France midfielder but they are eager to tie up Bale quickly.

The former Southampton and Tottenham forward has scored three goals in this tournament. With two European Cups in three years, he is set for a long career in the Spanish capital.

Manchester United have been keen on Bale for years and are hunting for a new superstar to match their commercial brand and Manchester City are also in the market for new talent. Both will be disappointed with the news.

Bale is very happy in Spain and will welcome the talks after a short holiday.

Agent offers Everton hope over Romelu Lukaku future

Romelu Lukaku’s agent has offered Everton hope they can hang on to the striker with the arrival of Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park.

The Belgium striker, currently at Euro 2016, has been making noises about leaving this summer with a host of clubs, including the likes of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, reportedly interested. The player was also mentioned as a possible target for Arsenal in Tuesday’s edition of Paper Talk.

However, representative Mino Raiola told Belgian newspaper Sportwereld: “If he leaves, it’s has to be a good deal for all parties involved.

“Everton don’t need money anymore. Rom wants to play for a club that can win trophies. Something’s changed at Everton – there’s a new project.

“Romelu certainly has the qualities to play in Italy but as the Italian landscape currently looks, there is no team that can afford him. He is too expensive for Serie A.

“Only a global club can pay him. The top clubs in England, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain and, of course, Bayern Munich.”

For the moment, however, Raiola insists Lukaku – like his other clients – is focused on the tournament in France.

“Their duty is to concentrate on it. Their future is tomorrow and as long as they are active at the European Championships, that is their future,” he added.

“Romelu does not want any thoughts of a transfer to be used as an excuse (for poor Euro 2016 performances).”

Hazard coy on future of ?big striker? Lukaku

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has refused to be drawn on speculation linking Romelu Lukaku with a return to Stamford Bridge.

The Everton striker looks set to move on this summer and he has said he has “made up his mind” on his future after revealing the last few months at Goodison Park had been “difficult”.

The 23-year-old has been linked with a move back to Chelsea, where he left in July 2014, while earlier this month the Corriere dello Sport claimed the Belgian forward was on Juventus’ wish list. 

Wherever the Belgium forward’s future lies and Arsenal are the latest club believed to be interested, there is no doubt he will be in-demand at the conclusion of the European Championships next month when his future will be resolved.

His Belgium team-mate Hazard gave nothing away though when he was asked whether Lukaku could be rejoining the capital club.

Hazard told Sky Sports: “I don’t know, I don’t want to talk about this. But Romelu is a big striker, he’s a good guy and a good friend of mine.

“It’s always good to play with the best in the world.”

Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku, who scored twice in Belgium’s 3-0 win over the Republic of Ireland on Saturday, is contracted at Everton until 2019.

Prior to the clash against the Republic Lukaku had come in for criticism for a lack of movement, but Hazard says the forward is “mentally strong”.

“For a striker it’s great confidence to score goals. Lukaku showed how good he is.

“When a striker doesn’t score, he tends to get criticism, but he can take it. He is mentally strong and I am sure he will be difference for us in each game, I hope,” added Hazard.

The former Anderlecht forward has scored 61 goals in 127 matches for the Toffees after joining the club permanently for £28million.

Everton ?open talks over £16m deal for Porto striker?

Everton have opened discussions over a £16million deal for Porto striker Vincent Aboubakar, according to reports on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old, who scored 16 goals last season, has also been linked with a move to Leicester City in recent months but is reportedly keen to link-up with Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The Dutchman hopes the signing of the Cameroon international can persuade Romelu Lukaku to change his mind about wanting to leave Goodison Park this summer. The Belgium, who has been linked with numerous clubs, was mentioned as a target for Arsenal in Tuesday’s Paper Talk.

Lukaku, who has also been mentioned as a target for Juventus and Chelsea, was Everton chief goal threat last season with January addition Oumar Niasse failing to impress and Arouna Kone reportedly considering an offer to move to China.
