Fussball Server rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Thursday, September 10.
Thursday morning’s Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
Rennes captain confirms Edouard Mendy to Chelsea?
Rennes captain Damien Da Silva appears to have confirmed that the French club’s goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is closing in on a move to Chelsea.
The 28-year-old has been strongly linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge in recent days and various reports have claimed that a deal is close to being completed.
Mendy, who has kept 36 clean sheets in 85 appearances for Rennes, could replace Kepa Arrizabalaga as the club’s number one goalkeeper should he arrive at Frank Lampard’s side.
“We are a little selfish, we don’t want to lose Edouard Mendy. But it’s part of football and the transfer market. He’s a great goalkeeper who deserves what happens to him,” Da Silva told Telefoot.
Chelsea are thought to have agreed a fee in the region of £20m with Rennes, who have already played twice in Ligue 1 this term and are due to take on Nimes this weekend.
The Blues, meanwhile, will start their 2020-21 Premier League campaign away to Brighton & Hove Albion on September 14.
Manchester United ‘beat Real Madrid to signing of Atletico Madrid starlet’
Manchester United have reportedly completed a deal to sign highly-rated teenage striker Alejandro Garnacho from Atletico Madrid.
The 16-year-old came through the ranks with Atletico and had been playing with their Under-19s side last season.
Atletico’s city rivals Real Madrid were also interested in his signature, while Borussia Dortmund were thought to be monitoring his progress too.
However, Marca reports that United have won the race for Garnacho, who is expected to arrive in England to officially complete the deal later this week.
The youngster, who will have to quarantine for 14 days following his arrival, is reportedly set to sign a five-year deal at Old Trafford.
Garnacho is the third Spanish teenager to join United this summer following the arrivals of 16-year-old Marc Jurado and 17-year-old Alvaro Fernandez from Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.
