Burnley’s James Trafford is a priority for Eddie Howe as the Newcastle manager looks to add to his goalkeeper position this summer. The Magpies also like Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale and Valencia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili but both are considered too expensive. The 21-year-old would provide competition for Nick Pope, who missed a lot of the season through injury. I’ve no news on Liverpool and Chelsea being interested in Trafford despite the Premier League giants being linked to the Burnley goalkeeper.

Newcastle will now enter club-to-club talks with Burnley, so let’s see how it goes. Whatever fee they agree on for the England star, Man City will receive 20% of any future sale.

Stefan Ortega has signed a new two-year deal with Man City until 2026 as the Premier League champions like the player and he trusts the project going forward. This move is also linked to the future of Ederson as I told you two weeks ago that City are open to the potential exit of the Brazilian goalkeeper. The player’s agent has been exploring options for weeks, so we have to wait and see.

Ederson is yet to decide his Man City future

However, this is not something guaranteed as it will depend on the proposals and the decision of the player. Man City have left it in the player’s hands, but if the Premier League champions receive a good proposal, they will not stand in the goalkeeper’s way. City consider Ortega a top goalkeeper and are happy to enter the 2024/25 campaign with the German as their number one.

This Ederson story is one to keep an eye on as there is strong interest from Saudi Arabia.

This weekend is a very intense one behind the scenes at Man United, despite things being very quiet around the future of Erik ten Hag. However, many things are happening.

I’m told that Man United are still talking to the representatives of other managers as the future of Ten Hag is still not safe as of right now….
