TOP STORY: Man United confident in race for Sancho
Manchester United are growing confident in their ability to win the race to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, the Telegraph reports.
The teenage sensation has been turning heads since his move to the Bundesliga in 2017, with last season marking his arrival to the main stage with a series of top clubs showcasing their interest in him. Those clubs include Real Madrid, Barcelona and reigning European champions Liverpool.
Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal are all on the outskirts of the conversation involving the 19-year-old Sancho, but it still appears as if the finances of the Red Devils could prove crucial in any potential negotiations.
Madrid ready to sell Mariano?
Calciomercato writes that Real Madrid are ready and willing to sell Mariano Diaz, but a potential destination for the forward could now be in jeopardy.
The once-capped Dominican Republic international hasn’t quite been able to catch fire at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the reports indicating that he’s no longer in the plans of manager Zinedine Zidane. One club that had been interested was AC Milan, but now it seems as if the price of the deal could lead to them pulling out.
Madrid want at least €6 million in order to agree to a sale, and with his contract not expiring until 2023, Milan would have to really dig deep in order to summon up the courage to make something happen.
Piatek to stay in Milan?
Krzysztof Piatek could be set for a remarkable U-turn that would see him remain at AC Milan, according to Calciomercato.
At one stage it seemed as if he would be forced out of the club due to the rumoured arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but sources close to him indicate that Piatek would prefer to stay until the end of the season in order to fight for his place in the starting XI.
Piatek’s future seemed set to feature some form of loan move away during the January transfer window, and yet all of a sudden, there seems to be renewed confidence in his ability to turn things around.

The club have been impressed with his performances as of late, and while it’s still early days, they’re reportedly willing to pay around €10m in order to bring him to Naples as their push to get back into the top-four race continues.
