Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Saturday, July 11.

Saturday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'still expect to sign Jadon Sancho'

Manchester United allegedly expect to confirm a deal for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho before the end of the next transfer window.

Due to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, it has been claimed that United are reluctant to pay in excess of £50m for the England international.

However, according to Duncan Castles of The Transfer Window Podcast, the stance is a negotiating tactic at a time when Dortmund still want to receive close to £100m for the 20-year-old.

While Castles says that Dortmund are in no rush to sell Sancho, he feels that there have been hints over wanting to balance the books in light of the current global crisis.

Sancho currently has two years remaining on his contract, putting Dortmund in a position where they must reach a decision over Sancho's future in order to maximise his value.

Manchester City offer two players in part-exchange for Kalidou Koulibaly?

Manchester City are reportedly prepared to offload two players in order to help their bid to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

While earlier claims have suggested that City are willing to pay £72m for the Senegal international, it remains unclear whether that would be enough to tempt Napoli into a sale.

According to The Sun, that has resulted in City being happy to include Nicolas Otamendi and Oleksandr Zinchenko in any proposal.

Despite making 28 starts in all competitions this season, Otamendi has long been linked with a departure from the Etihad Stadium.

Although Zinchenko's versatility strengthens City squad-depth, the Ukraine international has made just 17 starts and four substitute outings since last August.

The report indicates that City, who face competition from Liverpool and Manchester United, would still be required to pay in the region of £65m to get a deal over the line.
