Ratcliffe rants after Todibo bid blocked

 

Sir Jim Ratcliffe said it is “not fair” that Man Uts are not allowed to buy players from OGC Nice.

 

 

 

 

United have been heavily linked with centre-back Jean-Clair Todibo, but have been barred from signing him because of UEFA’s multi-club ownership rules.

 

 

 

 

“They (UEFA) have said we (Nice) can sell him to another Premiership club, but we can’t sell to Manchester United,” Ratcliffe told Bloomberg. “But that’s not fair on the player and I don’t see what that achieves.”

Man Utd interested in Edson Alvarez

 

Manchester United have identified Edson Alvarez as a potential replacement for Casemiro this summer, according to reports.

Arne Slot on Liverpool transfer operations

 

Arne Slot has offered some insight into how Liverpool’s new recruitment set-up will work after being unveiled as the club’s head coach.

 

 

 

 

He said: “Me and Richard [Hughes] are going to work together when it comes to transfers but not only the two of us – there is a big backroom staff included in this as well.

 

 

 

 

“I think for me it is the way I have worked always and it for me is the ideal way of working because I can use most of my time by working with the team.

 

 

 

 

“The time that is left will probably be a bit for the family and a bit to talk with Richard about how we can strengthen the team. But we already have a really strong team.”

Sir Jim Ratcliffe reveals Jean-Clair Todibo blow

 

Manchester United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has revealed that UEFA have blocked Jean-Clair Todibo’s transfer from Nice.

 

 

 

 

The Red Devils had identified Todibo as a centre-back target but will play in the Europa League with Nice next season.

 

 

 

 

And that has given UEFA reason to block the deal.

 

 

 

 

He told Bloomberg: “We have a player at Nice, I’m not going to say his name, who is really interested in joining Manchester United and who has the ability to be a Manchester United player.

 

 

 

 

“They [UEFA] told us we can’t sell him to United. They’ve said we can sell him to another Premiership club, but we can’t sell to Manchester United.

 

 

 

 

“But that’s not fair on the player and I don’t see what that achieves.”

Chelsea’s £40m masterplan

 

Chelsea could save £40m on Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran this summer by offering a straight swap deal.

 

 

 

 

Villa are reportedly closing in on a deal for Chelsea full-back Ian Maatsen, beating Borussia Dortmund to his signature.

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, the Blues are interested in Duran, who Villa are willing to cash in on should a suitable offer arrive.

 

 

 

 

Given Chelsea value Maatsen similar to Duran, a swap deal could be struck to help both clubs save money.

However, Football Transfers claim that there is frustration at the Emirates Stadium over Zubimendi not responding to the terms.

 

 

 

 

Zubimendi has a £52m release clause in his contract but may not be keen on a switch.

UEFA block Jean-Clair Todibo transfer

 

Manchester United won’t be able to sign Jean-Clair Todibo this summer due to UEFA rules.

 

 

 

 

Todibo plays for Nice – owned by INEOS – and was thought to be a prime alternative centre-back option to Jarrad Branthwaite.

 

 

 

 

According to Fabrizio Romano, United and Nice both playing in the Europa League next season means a potential deal is off.

 

 

 

 

Talks were said to be advanced for months but now appear highly unlikely to result in a deal.
