Football rumours: Romelu Lukaku knocks back interest despite Chelsea frustration

Despite being consigned to the fringes by Thomas Tuchel in recent months, Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has no interest in joining AC Milan or Newcastle – the latter of which are one of the few teams able to afford his salary and transfer fee.

The Evening Standard reports that the 28-year-old is frustrated over his lack of opportunities at the Blues but will knock back offers from the two clubs.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Erik ten Hag is planning a huge overhaul of Manchester United. The paper says the Dutchman is hoping to “revitalize the flagging career” of center-back Harry Maguire, 29, while weighing up whether to sell striker Marcus Rashford, 24.

Benfica striker Darwin Nunez has been scouted by Newcastle, with the club in the market for a quick goalscoring striker in addition to a central midfielder and a left-back.

Newcastle did not play very well this season, but certainly, their matches were suitable for betting throughout the season.

The Daily Mirror reports that the 22-year-old Uruguay international has previously been linked to Manchester United and Liverpool.

The same paper carries the story that Fulham attacker Fabio Carvalho has agreed to join Liverpool in the summer, quoting Tony Khan as saying a deal has been reached for the 19-year-old to leave the club – despite the player denying the claim.
