United target double signing
Manchester United have been linked with two midfielders in the winter transfer window. The Mirror reports that new United boss Ralf Rangnick has been given a budget of Â£ 100million, with Â£ 63million earmarked for Erling Haaland next summer. Prior to that, RB Leipzig pair Amadou Haidara and Christopher Nkunku are both potential winter additions to the squad.

Paper Round’s point of view: United still need a midfielder if Rangnick are the latest manager not to want to use Donny van de Beek, but even if the Dutchman arrives the club likely need a long-term replacement for Paul Pogba, who has shown little desire to sign a new deal at Old Trafford, and one whose performances probably did not earn him a future at the club.

Pereira’s mistake could cost United dearly
The Flamengo midfielder is on loan from Manchester United, with a proposed asking price of Â£ 17million. However, his mistake against Palmeiras in the Copa Libertadores means the Brazilians want to pay less than that, according to The Sun. This could affect Ralf Rangnick’s transfer plans, with midfielders Haidara and Denis Zakaria both being potential targets.
Paper Round’s point of view: Pereira should have left United a long time ago when it became clear that as orderly as he was (despite the weekend mistake) there was little he could do for a club the size of United . A single mistake is unlikely to mean a deal won’t go through, but maybe Flamengo realizes the 25-year-old is a player of limited talent, and that there is better value. elsewhere.
BarÃ§a ready to act in winter
Barcelona CEO Ferran Reverter is confident that the Spanish squad will be able to sign players this winter and the following transfer window. The club struggled with their finances and saw Lionel Messi leave with a free transfer, but Spanish newspaper Marca reported that Reverter said: âOf course we can renew Dembele. It might take a little longer from the operational side because we have to look in detail. “
Paper Round’s point of view: Signing players could be vital if new manager Xavi Hernandez has a big idea of ââfresh blood that could be used to revitalize the approach to the game – Dani Alves is unlikely to be enough on his own. Keeping Dembele is also a big step as the club simply cannot afford to let go of players without raising funds for substitutes.
Derby facing liquidation
The Mail reports that Derby County is threatened not only with another relegation, but also liquidation. The newspaper says Â£ 20million is owed to the MSD Group – American investors – along with Â£ 10million in other debts and Â£ 30million to HMRC. A takeover, presumably by Chris Kirchner, only makes commercial sense if this debt to the taxman can be reduced by more than half, which seems unlikely.
Paper Round’s point of view: While it doesn’t seem fair that fans should lose their club due to debts imposed by the decisions of the previous owner, HMRC has little flexibility. If the custom is established that the tax can be easily and sharply reduced during administrative procedures, then other clubs will be tempted to follow the same path.
