Barcelona to open talks with Manchester United for Defender

With Matthijs de Ligt almost certainly heading to Juventus, Barcelona's search for a new centre-back has taken a surprising turn -- to Manchester, of all places.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Spanish champions are interested in oft criticised United centre-back Victor Lindelof.

Can Barcelona convince Ole Gunnar Solskjaer & Co. to cash in on Lindelof now to fund yet another rebuild of United's squad? The Spanish outlet says Barca are hoping to open talks this week.

From Brazil: Neymar’s transfer to Barcelona could be agreed tomorrow

Neymar’s return to Barcelona could be agreed tomorrow, according to reports from the Brazilian press on Monday.

Reporter Marcelo Bechler, from Esporte Interativo, claims that the player’s father, along with his lawyer, will be meeting Barcelona official André Cury in the Catalan capital on Tuesday.

Bechler claims there’s ‘some big confidence’ from all parties involved that the deal can be found on the same day. He calls it ‘D Day’.

He adds that despite some rumours saying Ousmane Dembélé and Philippe Coutinho could be included in a deal with Paris Saint Germain, the players have not been sought by the French side and should not be part of the agreement. No further details on fees are revealed.

The news comes with great buzz because Marcelo Bechler is the one who broke the final details of Neymar’s transfer to PSG two seasons ago. This time, Esporte Interativo only explained it with a tweet and a 38 second video. But more should certainly come this week.
