Some very big names being bandied around the transfer rumour mill this week and quite a bit of interesting loan deal news as well. Here’s a round up of this week’s top stories in case you missed them.
1. After a quiet patch, rumours are hotting up again that United are in for Wolves’ Raul Jimenez, but they’re not alone. Here’s the story:
2. Jack Grealish rumours are as commonplace as Sancho and Pogba ones, but it is looking increasingly unlikely that United will sign the Villa man this summer, and here’s why:
3. Corentin Tolisso on the other hand is looking a lot more likely. He may be injury prone, but a better option perhaps than Adrian Rabiot:

9. Paul Pogba can check out any time he likes, but he can never leave. We looked at the current market and examined why it means the Frenchman will almost certainly have to stay put:
10. And finally, a happy story from Brandon Williams, watch this video of how he surprised his dad for his birthday:
