Manchester United are understood to be working behind the scenes to line-up some summer recruits in a bid to avoid the last-gasp madness of the last summer transfer window. Among those on their radar is Dutch international winger Memphis Depay, and according to the Mirror, Louis van Gaal is in pole position to sign him. PSV are reportedly resigned to losing the £15m-rated player who impressed under Van Gaal at the World Cup. Liverpool and Tottenham have also been linked.

Heading the other way at Old Trafford this summer is likely to be Radamel Falcao who has failed to make an impact during his season long loan from Monaco. Despite just four goals for the Red Devils, Juventus are keen on bringing the Colombian to Serie A according to Italian website Tuttosport.

Douglas Costa could be back on Chelsea's radar after dropping a major hint about a possible move to Stamford Bridge. The Brazilian striker came close to joining the Blues in January but a switch never materialised. "I think it’s time to try a new philosophy," he told FourFourTwo. "I'm sure that Mourinho's is the best around. He’s always fighting for trophies."

Having knocked Chelsea out of the Champions League, PSG could rub it in by making a move for Branislav Ivanovic according to the Express. It's suggested that Laurent Blanc has identified the 31-year-old as a key summer target.

Alexis Sanchez


Meanwhile, Alexis Sanchez has urged Arsenal to enter the transfer market again when it next opens, suggesting that a few additions will ensure the Gunners can compete with the very best. "If we add that to the very talented squad we have, we will be able to beat anyone," said the Chilean.
