Transfer News Live: Chelsea to pay £50m to sign a world-class La Liga star

Chelsea want Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong as the Spanish giants prepare to cash in on a disappointing signing with Bayern Munich also interested.

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong is a transfer target for Chelsea as they look to strengthen their squad.

They may be European champions, but they’ve looked disjointed in recent months and additions are needed.

Injuries haven’t helped the situation but signing De Jong is said to be on the cards as the Dutchman falls out of favor in Spain.

One of the highest-rated youngsters in world football in 2019, he is another of Ajax’s Champions League heroes who failed to start after his departure.

After an unlikely run to the semi-finals of the competition that season, Barcelona won the race for his signature but he failed to reach the level hoped for at Camp Nou.

Now, in another disappointing campaign, the Catalans look set to give up on the player as they plot a rebuild.Barcelona, ​​according to El Nacional, want around £50million but could lower their asking price given the money is vital to their long-term project.

Corn fabrice romano confirmed that La Liga giants Barca have yet to receive an offer from Chelsea for £33m or any other amount, while Bayern Munich are also believed to be keen on the player.

Meanwhile, the Blues are also in the market for a full-back this transfer window as they seek cover with Reece James and Ben Chilwell injured.

Man Utd Lead Race To Sign Ruiz From NapoliAccording to Repubblica, Manchester United are in pole position to sign Fabian Ruiz from Napoli, although the Spaniard is not their first choice target.

Manchester United could be heading towards a huge summer in terms of recruitments. The club need to reinforce many important positions in their squad, with central midfield considered the most vital area. Several high profile players have seen their names linked with a switch to Old Trafford, although a final decision will depend on several factors.

Manchester United are already considering a move for Denis Zakaria in the ongoing transfer window. This is a significant sign of the club’s intention to bring in fresh players to fit into Ralf Rangnick’s ideas.

Their other target for the summer is Fabian Ruiz, who plays for Napoli. With 18 months left on his contract, the Spaniard could move out of the Italian outfit and join one of the many high profile suitors that are chasing his signature.

Liverpool Told To Pay €55 Million For Eduardo Camavinga

According to a report by Catalan outlet El Nacional, Eduardo Camavinga is considering his future at Real Madrid and might be open to joining Liverpool. The Spanish giants will demand around €55 million to part with the 19-year-old midfielder.

Eduardo Camavinga had the world at his feet after becoming a pivotal figure for Stade Rennais despite still being in his teens. The Frenchman even made his international debut aged just 17 and was unsurprisingly courted by some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Real Madrid eventually won the race to sign the 19-year-old, although he is not entirely happy with his situation at the club. The youngster has started only seven of the 26 games played by Real Madrid since his arrival and has concerns about his place in the squad. Camavinga’s situation has not gone unnoticed, with Liverpool considering signing him.

The Reds hold a long-standing interest in Camavinga, having been in his pursuit before he joined Real Madrid. Liverpool’s continued eagerness to sign the teenage prodigy could be stemming from the advancing average age of the midfield unit at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal.
