Report: If Spurs buy 25-year-old, he’ll become their most expensive signing this summer

Tottenham Hotspur will have to pay a massive transfer fee, and certainly their biggest fee this summer if they are to sign Milan Skriniar, according to reports from Sport Mediaset.  Jose Mourinho wants to bolster his defence this summer and has earmarked the 25-year-old as a potential option.

The report claims that Spurs have submitted an offer in the region of €35 million. However, Inter value the player at around €55-€60 million. Tottenham have opened talks for Milan Skriniar as possible target. He’s one of Mourinho’s fav options as new centre-back [no more chances for a s...

Report shares how much Real Madrid are set to earn as Leeds complete £20m move

Leeds United have reached an agreement with Spanish club Real Sociedad to sign defender Diego Llorente this summer, and his fee is expected to be worth in the region of £20 million. The 27-year-old is set to become the third first-team arrival at Elland Road this summer, and head coach Marcelo Bielsa will be keen to have him help strengthen his defence after watching his side ship seven Premier League goals in two games. Parting with £20 million for Llorente’s services is good business for both Leeds and Sociedad, but the duo aren’t the only ones benefiting from the move. According to Marca, the defender’s former club Real Madrid are set to pocket £4 million from the deal having included a 20 percent sell-on clause in their sale of Llorente three years ago.

Report shares how much Leeds must pay to trigger exit of Rangers star

Leeds United have had a bid worth up to £10 million including add-ons knocked back by the Light Blues for the former Liverpool man, and they will need to double that offer to guarantee signing Kent.

Di Marzio: West Ham keen on 26-yr-old but they face competition from Newcastle

Juventus defender Daniele Rugani has been linked with a move away from the Italian club this summer and it seems that Newcastle and West Ham United are keen on the player as per Di Marzio.
