Daily Transfer Wrap: Liverpool and Man United eye World Cup stars
There’s not long left to go until the summer transfer window slams shut for Premier League clubs.
Teams are attempting to be extra vigilant this year with the deadline for deals brought forward to 9th August.
Plenty of business has already been done, and we’ve rounded up all of today’s key deals and rumours below.
Curtains for Blind at Old Trafford
The writing has been on the wall for Daley Blind at Manchester United for some time. So it came as no surprise earlier today when the 28-year-old Dutchman completed his return to Ajax.
What did raise eyebrows, though, was the way the Eredivisie giants announced his signing. Check out the video below.
DALEY = COMING HOME!!!

Rebic on his way to United?
The first member of Croatia’s World Cup squad to feature in today’s list and arguably one of the most exciting.
Ante Rebic terrified defences in Russia and is now the subject of interest from Manchester United.
A total of 10 goals in 37 appearances for club and country suggest he knows where the back of the net is. But Eintracht Frankfurt also know how much the 24-year-old is worth.
Jose Mourinho will have to stump up over £30m if he wants to bring the DFB-Pokal winner to Old Trafford.
Karius out, Alisson in?
Liverpool have been on the trail of AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson for some time. But now it finally looks as though a deal could be close.
Talks between the player’s agent and the Serie A giants are rumoured to have taken place today.
The stopper has already dropped a huge hint that his future lies away from Serie A by removing Roma from his Instagram bio.
If a move does happen, Loris Karius’ days on Merseyside look numbered.
Viva la Vida for West Ham?
Domagoj Vida caused quite a stir at the World Cup. The ponytailed Croatian helped his nation reach the final in Russia and has attracted attention from the Premier League as a result.
West Ham United and Liverpool head the queue for the 29-year-old, who will reportedly cost around £20m to prise away from Turkish club Besiktas.
