MAROUANE FELLAINI

The Manchester United midfielder is being pursued by six teams as his contract at Old Trafford winds down, the Mirror reports.

The 30-year-old has fallen down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho this season and is desperate to leave England’s northwest.

Despite Mourinho’s efforts to keep him until 2020, the Belgian has turned down an improved offer from the Manchester hierarchy.

Fellaini will be part of Belgium’s World Cup this summer and is looking for one final big pay day before he retires.

The Belgian has also been linked with Monaco, West Ham, Paris St-Germain, Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Roma.

MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI

Arsenal are ready to fight Chelsea for the Juventus boss, according to the Express.

The Italian was widely tipped as the top candidate for the Gunners last summer had Wenger not signed a new two-year contract.

Given Antonio Conte’s success in his first season at Chelsea in 2016-17, it would be interesting to see if Allegri could have a similar impact if he moved from Juventus to the Premier League.

But Arsenal face a huge challenge of luring the three-time Serie A winning coach to the Emirates Stadium, with Chelsea in pole position to secure his services.

Italian striker Mario Balotelli on Saturday dropped a strong hint he could leave Nice at the end of the season after two years with the Ligue 1 club.

Balotelli has scored 39 goals in 61 matches since arriving in France on a free transfer in August 2016 following dismal spells at Liverpool and AC Milan.

“It’s been two amazing years thanks to everyone,” Balotelli wrote on his Instagram account. “It’s not a bye for now…you never know the future. I only wanted to say thanks already now.”

The 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with a return to Italy or England.

Balotelli’s agent, Mino Raiola, last month said the striker would be “a bargain” for potential suitors in the summer, but Nice are reluctant to lose him for nothing.

Sixth-placed Nice host Montpellier on Sunday in a match crucial to their hopes of qualifying for the Europa League, although Balotelli is expected to miss out due to illness.

DANNY ROSE

In his column for GQ, Jermaine Jenas claimed Danny Rose is certain to join Manchester United in the summer.

“I think it’s nailed on that [Jose] Mourinho will get Rose this summer and the smart deal would be for Luke Shaw to go in the opposite direction,” he wrote.

According to the Express, United’s interest in Rose dates back to last summer but the Red Devils have also show an interest in Alex Sandro and Ryan Sessegnon. Shaw continues to be snubbed my Mourinho for a starting role in the side, paving the way for his Old Trafford exit.
