Transfer Rater: Willian to Man United, Donnarumma to PSG
Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the whisper.
Here are today's top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Willian to Manchester United
According to The Sun, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on a reunion with Willian this summer. The Brazilian winger's form has been vastly improved this season, despite Chelsea's struggles, and he was their best player in the 3-0 defeat to Barcelona on Wednesday evening. When Willian arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2013, Mourinho was in charge and the Brazilian said he was excited to be playing under one of the world's best managers.So he could be interested in a move to work with him again. United made a bid for Willian last summer, and were told he wasn't for sale, but could return with a £60 million offer.
Kwadwo Asamoah to Chelsea
Should Antonio Conte stay at Chelsea this summer, he will reportedly look to bring in Asamoah from Juventus. The Italian manager signed the versatile Ghanaian for the Serie A side back in 2012 and The Sun claim Conte sees him as someone who could provide competition for Marcos Alonso. The 29-year-old's contract runs out in the summer and would arrive on a free, but Chelsea could face competition from Napoli and Inter.
Jose Gaya to Manchester United
Valencia left-back Gaya could be a Manchester United target this summer, according to Rai Sport. The 22-year-old has previously been linked with Arsenal and Chelsea but Mourinho is said to have stepped up his interest in the Spaniard, with Matteo Darmian set to leave at the end of the season. Juventus' Alex Sandro is also an option, but his £70m asking price could push them towards Gaya, who would be considerably cheaper.
Kevin Strootman to Inter
Inter have reportedly joined Liverpool and AC Milan in the race to sign Roma midfielder Strootman. The Dutch international has a €45m release clause in his contract with the Serie A side, but Calciomercato reports Inter aren't willing to pay that much money and will look to sign him for a lower fee. Luciano Spalletti's side want some midfield reinforcements and are also looking at Shakhtar's Bernard.
Gianluigi Donnarumma to Paris Saint-Germain
Various reports in France are claiming that Donnarumma is a Paris Saint-Germain target. L'Equipe believe the Ligue 1 leaders are prepared to sanction a €70m deal for the Milan goalkeeper, while Premium Sport claim PSG are lining up a swap deal which would involve Edinson Cavani. With the French side keen on a new goalkeeper, it wouldn't be a surprise to see them make a move for the highly-rated 19-year-old.
