FERNANDO TORRES

A new adventure awaits the legendary striker this summer after he decided to end his latest stint at boyhood club Atletico Madrid and a move to Major League Soccer could await, according to MLSsoccer.com.

Chicago Fire are reported to own the ‘discovery rights’ – they’ve filed a claim to the league’s head office about interest – and have declared their desire to sign him.

The 34-year-old has made only three La Liga starts this season and is targeting a fresh challenge in the United States or China.

ANDRE GOMES

It looks like a London battle is set to take place this summer to buy maligned and unsettled midfielder Andre Gomes from Barcelona.

Gomes, 24, has failed to impress at Camp Nou since a €35 million (Dh158.7m) move from Valencia in summer 2016. This has led to an opening for West Ham and Tottenham to reignite interest in the Portugal international, according to SPORT.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly enamoured by the player’s versatility. The Hammers already failed in a bid to buy him last year.

GARETH BALE

It’s been a tough season for the Wales forward at Real Madrid, but the Daily Mail reports he has no intention of exiting any time soon.

Bale, 28, was taken off at half-time of Wednesday’s epic Champions League triumph against Juventus to deal another blow to his relationship with head coach Zinedine Zidane. This followed him being left out for many major fixtures this term.

Yet, the ex-Tottenham superstar is rumoured to still think there is no better place for him than Santiago Bernabeu.

ALFIE MAWSON

As Sevilla and Manchester City proved not too long ago, strike at the heart of Manchester United’s defence and it can cause Jose Mourinho mega headaches – even with Eric Bailly back in action.

So that gives credence to the latest name to be linked to Old Trafford, with Alfie Mawson generating a rather big name for himself as Swansea fight tooth and nail to ensure they stay in the Premier League this season.

According to The Sun, scouts on Mourinho’s orders were at the Swans’ 1-1 draw with West Brom last weekend – a move sure to pile the pressure on up-and-down centre-backs Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.

JEAN MICHAEL SERI

Chelsea’s ‘improvements’ in midfield this season have fallen flat so far to say the least. Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater have been a clear step back – made all the worse with reject Nemanja Matic flourishing at Manchester United.

L’Equipe say the Blues will be rectifying that at the close season with the signature of Jean Michael Seri, the Nice midfielder who was a gnat’s hair away from signing for Barcelona last year.

United and more recently Liverpool have been linked with the diminutive Ivorian who is best regarded for his pinpoint passing and poise – two traits Chelsea desperately need more of.

Wanted man: Seri.

PAUL POGBA

The France midfielder’s future beyond this summer at Manchester United seems far from certain and Paris Saint-Germain are plotting a return to his homeland, according to Paris United.

Pogba, 25, struck twice in last weekend’s stunning derby win at Manchester City, but this was the high point of a miserable few months detailed by a rumoured falling out with manager Jose Mourinho.

Big-spending PSG have opened talks with agent Mino Raiola as they look to further revamp their squad after their Champions League disappointment.

GARETH BALE

The Wales forward suffered the indignity of being hooked at half-time during the thrilling midweek Champions League quarter-final with Juventus and his future could now lie in Italy.

Bale, 28, looks to have fallen down the pecking order at Santiago Bernabeu. With United no longer interested in acquiring him, The Independent reports that Internazionale could be his new home.

The Nerazzurri will pounce if Los Blancos show any inclination to dispense with the man they bought for €100 million (Dh452.9m) in 2013.

THIBAUT COURTOIS

The Belgium goalkeeper has set his heart on a switch to PSG as his seven-year association with Chelsea looks close to an end, according to RMC Sport.

Courtois, 25, has yet to agree a contract extension on a deal that expires in summer 2019. With the Parisians on the look out for a new, elite shot stopper, talks have begun about making the move.

But the Blues are unwilling to relinquish their No1 and are prepared to even let him walk out on a free transfer.
