Man Utd keeping tabs on Monaco midfielder Fofana as Casemiro replacement – Paper Round

According to reports, Manchester United is closely observing Youssouf Fofana from Monaco as a potential alternative for Casemiro. Casemiro, who is 31 years old, has faced difficulties this season and will be sidelined until the beginning of next year due to injury. Fofana, who has represented France 13 times, has been an exceptional player for Monaco ever since he joined from Strasbourg in January 2020. Manchester Evening News states that United is preparing for four significant signings in the upcoming summer, including a midfielder, and has expressed interest in Fofana, whose market value is estimated at approximately €25 million. According to reports, Newcastle is said to be keen on acquiring Ferran Torres from Barcelona. The 23-year-old, who made the switch from Manchester City to Barcelona in January 2022, has managed to score 19 goals in 87 games for the Spanish powerhouse. In an effort to address their financial challenges, Barcelona is seeking to sell players and Torres might be one of those on the list. Fichajes indicates that Newcastle is considering the idea of bringing Torres back to the Premier League and a bid of approximately £35 million might be enough to secure his transfer. In the meantime, there is a competition happening between Chelsea and Arsenal to secure the services of Gabriel Moscardo, an exceptional 18-year-old talent from Brazil. This midfielder from Corinthians has caught the attention of not only Liverpool and Barcelona but also represents the Brazil U23 team. He has already played 16 matches in the top-tier Brazilian league this season. Although Chelsea’s £18 million bid for Moscardo was turned down in the summer, they are anticipated to make another offer in January. However, Corinthians will defer any negotiations until after their presidential elections on November 25th.
