PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The January transfer window may seem like a distant memory, but that doesn't mean the rumour mill has shut down! Speculation over summer moves is heating up, so check out the latest gossip below, and see all official deals here.TOP STORY: Man Utd to include Lingard in deal for RiceManchester United will look to include Jesse Lingard in a deal to sign West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice, reports the Athletic.Lingard joined West Ham on loan in January and is due to return to Old Trafford in the summer, but the forward has been in superb form this season, scoring six goals and assisting a further four in eight Premier League games.While this has, understandably, made the prospect of making Lingard's loan permanent an exciting one for West Ham, it has also made United believe they have another way of signing his 22-year-old England and Hammers teammate.West Ham are looking to get around £100 million from clubs looking to sign Rice and United have been constantly linked with him in recent years, with Chelsea and Manchester City also keen.Rice may be out of action, having injured his knee during England's 2-1 World Cup qualification win over Poland, but that has not dampened the interest in securing his signature.While there are no fees given in the report, it is suggested that United will be exploring how a deal involving Lingard could work.- Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ (U.S. only) - ESPN+ viewer's guide: Bundesliga, Serie A, MLS, FA Cup and moreLIVE BLOG09.58 BST: Barcelona's players still "dream" of the club re-signing Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain, according to a report in Mundo Deportivo.Neymar, 29, is out of contract in 2022 and is yet to sign a new deal in Paris. Some reports in France suggest an agreement to renew is close to being finalised, but Diari ARA claimed last week that talks have broken down with the Brazilian keen to return to Camp Nou.Mundo Deportivo says that Barca's players, especially those that previously played with Neymar, are desperate for the club to make an effort to bring him back."They would prefer [Barca] to sign him than Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay," the report says, referencing Neymar's first-half "exhibition" in the 3-2 Champions League win against Bayern Munich in midweek.Barca tried to re-sign Neymar in 2019 but couldn't reach an agreement with PSG. With the club's gross debt approaching €1.2 billion, it's unlikely they will be able to pay for him this summer, either, unless they move players on or can tempt PSG with a swap deal. Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann have been mentioned as possible options.Another would be for Neymar to see out his contract and return to Barca for free having left them for a world record €222m fee in 2017.09.21 BST: Agent Mino Raiola's Erling Haaland roadshow (a move that looks a precursor to a summer exit, says ESPN's Gab Marcotti) has led some Manchester United insiders to feel they were right to cool their interest in the striker before he signed for Borussia Dortmund.Sources told ESPN's Rob Dawson it came as no surprise to see Raiola and Haaland's father Alf-Inge visit Barcelona and Real Madrid in the lead up to Dortmund's 2-1 Champions League quarterfinal first-leg defeat at Manchester City on Tuesday.United are among a host of elite clubs who remain interested in Haaland, either this summer or in 2022 when his release clause at Dortmund becomes active, and sources told ESPN Dortmund value Haaland at €180m. Privately, United and Manchester City have distanced themselves from agreeing to a fee that high amid the coronavirus pandemic, with club finances across the world suffering a significant hit. City revealed the full impact of COVID-19 on the club by reporting a net loss of £126m for the 2019-20 season, a year after reporting a profit of £10.1m.United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer visited Haaland in the run-up to his departure from Salzburg in 2020 but club bosses, including executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, were never comfortable with the terms put forward by agent Raiola and Haaland's father. Talks with Haaland's camp led United to believe his representatives wanted to stay in control of the youngster's future by including a release clause in his contract -- something Dortmund accepted before his move to Germany. United's concern was that should Haaland be a success, he could be touted around Europe's biggest clubs at any point, with the club unable to do anything about it.

.43 BST: It wasn't long ago that Karim Benzema was spotted on camera seemingly criticising Vinicius Junior -- but the striker has been full of praise for the Brazilian after his Champions League brace in the 3-1 win over Liverpool this week.TV images showed Benzema telling teammate Ferland Mendy "don't pass to him, brother" at half-time in Real Madrid's game with Borussia Monchengladbach in October, in apparent reference to Vinicius."I believe in him, he has everything to triumph here," Benzema told La Liga in an interview ahead of Saturday's Clasico against Barcelona. "That's why I talk to him a lot, on the pitch and off the pitch. Sometimes I'm a bit hard on him, but it's for him. I know he can give more because he's a phenomenon when he wants to be."Vinicius, 20, hasn't always convinced since joining Madrid in 2018 and had been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, even being named as potentially part of a transfer deal that would bring Kylian Mbappe to the Bernabeu.- Breaking down the keys to the Champions League quarterfinals08.00 BST: Tottenham are leading the race for West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, sources have told ESPN's Mark Ogden, with West Ham and Leeds also monitoring the 28-year-old's situation at The Hawthorns.Hugo Lloris' indifferent form for Jose Mourinho's team this season has led to the club searching for a potential replacement and Johnstone is regarded as a reliable, and inexpensive, option to challenge or replace the France No. 1, who has been deputised by ex-England keeper Joe Hart this season.The former Manchester United youngster, who was loaned out to six different clubs during his nine-year career at Old Trafford, earned his first senior England call-up for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland last month after emerging as one of the most consistent keepers in the Premier League at West Brom this season.But with Sam Allardyce's team facing a battle to avoid relegation -- West Brom are eight points adrift of safety with eight games to play -- Johnstone's future at the club is now in doubt due to the financial impact of dropping back into the Championship following promotion last season.Having arrived from United in a £6.5m deal in 2018, sources have told ESPN that Johnstone could be sold for as little as £10m this summer due to the keeper having just one year left to run on his contract at The Hawthorns.PAPER GOSSIP (by Danny Lewis)- Kylian Mbappe will refuse to sign a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain and wants to join Real Madrid, reports Cuatro. This will put the Parisians in a difficult position, as the 22-year-old forward, who scored twice against Bayern Munich last night, only has a deal that runs until 2022.- Both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are monitoring Denmark centre-back Joachim Andersen, reports the Telegraph. The 24-year-old has impressed during his loan spell at Fulham this term, meaning Lyon will have a decision on their hands regarding whether or not to let him leave upon his return to France.- According to Calciomercato, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain could come to a deal that would see Paulo Dybala and Mauro Icardi swap clubs. PSG shouldn't be celebrating the signing of Dybala just yet though, as Barcelona, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are all said to hold an interest in the 27-year-old striker.- Internazionale centre-back Andrea Ranocchia and Napoli defender Nikola Maksimovic both have contracts coming to an end this summer, and Calciomercato have claimed their futures could intertwine. If Ranocchia is not kept on at Inter, it is suggested that the Serbian could come in to replace him. Meanwhile, Lazio are interested in both of them, while Sassuolo want Ranocchia and AS Roma are keeping an eye on Maksimovic.- Bologna won't accept anything less than €20m to sign 24-year-old Riccardo Orsolini, as has been suggested by La Gazzetta dello Sport. This news comes with AC Milan and unnamed Bundesliga clubs interested in the Italian. The emergence of Andreas Skov Olsen could make them more likely to let the winger leave, but they won't go under their valuation.- Leeds United have been priced out of a move for PSV Eindhoven's 19-year-old winger Noni Madueke, reports Football Insider. The Premier League side had shown an interest in the England Under-21 international, but PSV are demanding between £20m-£25m, a fee Leeds are unwilling to match.
