Juan Mata to join Juventus as part of Man United's huge Paul Pogba deal

With the summer transfer window upon us, rumours are picking up steam. As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest gossip. See the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: United offer Juve Mata as Pogba incentive

Paul Pogba's blockbuster move may have taken a step forward with Manchester United floating a possible makeweight in the form of Juan Mata.

The Sunday People suggests that the Red Devils will attempt to drive down the Old Lady's £100 million valuation of the France international by offering the Spanish playmaker.

The Bianconeri have been searching for a traditional No. 10 for some time and appeared to have found their man in the shape of Miralem Pjanic.

Massimiliano Allegri could opt to play Pjanic a little deeper though with Mata potentially playing behind Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic.

Madrid slaps massive price tag on Morata

Alvaro Morata rejoined Real Madrid this summer with the European champions activating a £26 million buy-back clause two years after the Spain international joined Juventus.

The Mail believes it will only be a temporary move though, with Los Merengues planning to quickly move Morata on in order to make a handy profit by demanding £64m from Premier League clubs.

Chelsea have already had a bid in the region of £51m rejected for the 23-year-old and Manchester United and Arsenal are ready to join the race.

It's not that straightforward though -- transfers in the silly season never are -- with Marca reporting that Real will reject all offers for the star forward.

City line up deal for Torino full-back

Pep Guardiola's era is underway and the Spanish manager is searching for a new right-back, hinting that Bacary Sagna is not his ideal starter with Pablo Zabaleta imminently moving away.

City will offer £17 million for Torino's Bruno Peres, who can also feature as a right midfielder or in an advanced role on the left flank.

Despite four years remaining on the 26-year-old's contract, the Mail suggests City will make Peres part of Guardiola's plans to make over his defence with £100m likely necessary to prise fellow targets Leonardo Bonucci and John Stones away from Juventus and Everton.

Leicester receive offer from China for Kante

It was always going to be a tremendously difficult task to keep together a title-winning team, but Leicester will be forced to fend off interest from Shanghai SIPG for N'Golo Kante.

The Express reports that Sven Goran Eriksson's club will bid £35 million for the France international and offer a highly lucrative contract to lure the destructive midfielder to China.

Kante's contract is rumoured to have a £20m buyout clause, though, and with offers likely to flood in from Europe's biggest clubs, a move to China at this stage of his career appears premature.

Tap-ins

- Tottenham have entered the race for Newcastle star Georginio Wijnaldum after a potential swap deal with Liverpool for Jordon Ibe broke down when the Reds winger agreed to join Bournemouth for £15 million.

The Sunday People reports the Toon now want at least £25m for the Dutch midfielder and are even hopeful a bidding war could send the fee closer to £30m.

- Saido Berahino has rejected an extension with West Brom and now looks set to leave the Baggies with just one year remaining on his contract.

The Telegraph says the 22-year-old has knocked back wages of £55,000 per week to extend his stay with Tony Pulis' side with Stoke, Watford and even Crystal Palace now waiting to pounce for the £20m-rated forward.
