TUESDAY 11AM Done Deals, Chelsea, Dybala, £42m Condition, Ronaldo And More

Tuesday morning done deals and transfer updates for some key players and some clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Check details here:

Man United asked to pay £42m to land this young and promising Ramos alternative

According to Spanish journalist Jose David Lopez (h/t Express), Jules Kounde and Ben White have been linked with a transfer to Manchester United, with the former being the club’s priority in the defensive area.

However, United are not willing to meet Kounde’s release clause, and the French centre-back is unlikely to leave Sevilla for a fee lesser than £72million. Their alternative, in that case, is Brighton and Hove Albion’s Ben White.

But even the Englishman would cost the club a sum of around £42million. That would make him the 2nd most expensive defender in United history behind Harry Maguire.

Chelsea, Spurs ‘potential contenders’ for Juventus’ Paulo Dybala

Paulo Dybala is a name that should be familiar to many, if not most, not just for his goals and successes over the past six years, but for his multiple dramatic turns in the rumor mill.

Chelsea were linked in 2017 and (quite strongly in) 2015 as well, the latter being the time when Dybala outgrew Palermo and looked to make the jump up to elite level, which he did to Juve.

And so the game begins by Dybala (who’s represented by his brother) getting linked with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, who are said to be “potential contenders” by France Football (via Sport Witness).

Dybala mostly plays as a centre forward or as a second striker and he could be an option for Chelsea should Erling Haaland prove to be a pipe dream.

Zidane on Ronaldo return to Real: ‘May be’

As his side prepares to take on Atalanta in the second leg of their Round of 16 Champions League tie that Los Blancos lead 1-0 on aggregate, he addressed the potential of a sensational return for Ronaldo, who joined Juventus in 2018 after nine seasons at the Bernabeu, with Sky Sports Italy.

“Maybe,” Zidane said. “We know Cristiano, the person he is and what he did here. But he’s a Juventus player… We’ll see what happens in the future. I was lucky to coach him. He’s really impressive.”

The talk surrounding a Ronaldo exit from Juve comes after the Bianconeri crashed out of the Champions League at the Round of 16 stage for the second consecutive season and director Fabio Patarici ruled out any extension talks for the 36-year-old Portugal international whose current contract runs out at the end of next season.

Done deal: Madden departs for Stockport County

Fleetwood Town can confirm Paddy Madden has joined Stockport County on a permanent contract.

The 31-year-old wrote himself into the club’s history books during his three-years at Highbury Stadium with 43 goals, making himself Fleetwood Town’s record top EFL goal scorer.

He joins the National League side on a three-and-a-half-year contract for a substantial undisclosed fee.

Done deal: Graham Burke signs new three-year deal with Shamrock Rovers

Ireland international forward Graham Burke has agreed a new three-year deal with Airtricity League champions Shamrock Rovers with the 27-year-old now set to stay at the Tallaght club until the summer of 2024.

The Dubliner, who started his senior career at Aston Villa before returning home from Notts County to join Rovers for the first time, is currently on loan back at the Irish side having left for Preston North End on a three-year deal in 2018. He played an important part in the club’s title success last season.
