Football rumours from the media

Willian might stay at Chelsea, who are also poised to sign Kai Havertz, according to the rumour mill.

Willian could be set to stay at Chelsea after all, with a breakthrough reached in contract negotiations, according to Sky Sports. Several clubs had been circling for the 31-year-old Brazilian, who was rumoured to want to leave Stamford Bridge, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona, and David Beckham’s Inter Miami.

However, the winger is tipped to sign a new contract with Chelsea this week, despite being offered only a two-year extension instead of his preferred three.

Manchester United are still poised to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa, although he has been warned he would not be a certain starter for the Red Devils every week, The Independent reports. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still keen to sign Grealish even if United complete the transfer of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. United are likely to have to up their ante from their initial £90m bid for Sancho, but will not meet Dortmund’s desired £110m, the Daily Mail says. The Old Trafford club will likely be also forced to go above their envisaged £50m to sign Grealish now that Villa will stay in the Premier League, but at least Champions League qualification has given Solskjaer more spending power.
