    Spanish champions Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Manchester United star Jesse Lingard, according to reports.

    According to 90min.com, Lingard, who has returned to pre-season training, is a summer transfer target for Atletico.

    United reportedly want £25million for the player, who has just a year remaining on his current deal.

    Lingard is believed to be interested in moving abroad, following in the footsteps of Sancho and his Dortmund team-mate Jude Bellingham.

    Atletico could use Kieran Trippier to negotiate a move for Lingard, with United close to completing a move for the former Tottenham defender.

    A swap deal is unlikely but the Red Devils may be willing to drop their price for Lingard if the LaLiga club let Trippier complete a return to England.

    SunSport have exclusively revealed that Manchester United are close to completing a double defensive swoop for Raphael Varane and Kieran Trippier.

    Both deals are all but done with announcements expected towards the end of next week.

    United look set to hand Real Madrid a £50million fee for Varane, 28, despite the French international centre-back having just one year left on his Bernabeu contract.

    England full-back Trippier, 30, wants the move to Old Trafford after two successful years at Atletico Madrid — and a transfer worth £18m is in the final stages.

    The two deals will take United’s spending to more than £140m this summer with the arrival of winger Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for £73m.

    Meanwhile, the Red Devils have received a boost in their quest to lure Eduardo Camavinga away from Rennes.

    Rennes are willing to cash in on the teenager with the France international entering the final year of his contract.

    And in a boost to Camavinga’s potential suitors, Foot Mercato have claimed that they are eyeing up a move to sign his replacement.

    In other news, Juventus have insisted Cristiano Ronaldo has given no indication he wants to leave and that they expect him back for training this month.

    Director Pavel Nedved said: “Cristiano is on holiday. We have no signal from his entourage that he wants to leave.

    “We’re waiting for him and he will return around 25 July as scheduled.”

    And finally, Manchester United will NOT be signing Inter Milan midfielder Nicola Barella this summer.

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “There’s nothing going on between Manchester United or Liverpool with Inter to sign Nicolo Barella.

    “He’s not for sale this summer – Inter consider Barella ‘untouchable’ despite rumours."
