Speculation over Raheem Sterling‘s future at Manchester City continues to dominate the back pages, with The Sun saying contract negotiations will open this month.
The paper says the England international’s representatives have not yet met the club hierarchy, but the Premier League champions appear to want to keep the 23-year-old at the Etihad long term and hope to extend his contract beyond 2020.
Manchester United are said to have their sights on Lucas Paqueta, The Mirror reports. With Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona also having eyes on the 21-year-old, the Flamengo star is emerging as one of the game’s biggest talents, and United are thought to be prepared to battle a £35million offer from PSG, the paper says.
Questions were raised when it was reported Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea turned down the club’s latest offer, but the Metro reports that the 27-year-old has insisted he is happy to remain at Old Trafford.
He is out of contract next summer and it remains to be seen whether the Red Devils will come up with an improved offer.
Plans to bring Jay Rodriguez back to the Premier League have hit a snag, according to The Sun. Burnley were hoping to bring the 29-year-old to Turf Moor, but Championship side West Brom have rejected their opening offer, leaving the Clarets pondering an increase on their £12million bid.
Dutch duo Justin Kluivert and Donny van de Beek are on the radar of Tottenham, The Sun says. Having already been impressed with the talent from Dutch side Ajax, it looks as though Spurs will once again turn to their tried-and-tested method of bringing in new talent from Europe.
Van de Beek is said to be on the radar of some of Europe’s biggest clubs – including Barcelona and Bayern Munich – while Kluivert moved to Italian behemoths Roma this summer.
