Football rumours from the media

WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

Barcelona are lining up a move for Monaco star KYLIAN MBAPPE as a potential replacement for NEYMAR, reports the Daily Mail.

The Brazilian looks increasingly likely to join PSG for a world record fee of over £180million and the Spanish club could splash the cash on the young French striker.

The Mirror are reporting that Manchester United could be ready to swoop for Everton midfielder ROSS BARKLEY.

The paper claimed on Wednesday that Barkley wants to become Tottenham's highest-paid player, but they now suggest United are monitoring the situation.

Manchester City may just have spent £50million on Kyle Walker, but the Sun writes that they are chasing Real Madrid right-back Danilio, who can also play in midfield, in a £26million deal.

West Ham have been told they will have to fork out £20million if they are to lure Arsenal into selling JACK WILSHERE.

Chelsea want to recoup £44million for Atletico Madrid-bound DIEGO COSTA, according to the Independent.

ONLINE/SOCIAL ROUND-UP

@SunMartinB: Fernando and Delph both likely to leave #mcfc this summer. No plans to bring in any more midfielders tho. Danilo can play there if needed.

@DeadlineDayLive: Chris Samba is currently on trial at Aston Villa. He played alongside John Terry in a friendly.

@Agent_Edward: Morata to CFC for £75m & Danilo to MCFC for £30m + add-ons. £105m for 2 bench players is very good business by Real Madrid.

@DailyStarSport: #CardiffCity EXCLUSIVE: Vincent Tan ready to sell Championship club for £30m.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

NABY KEITA: Liverpool are willing to pay £70million to snare the RB Leipzig midfielder, according to the Mirror.

JAVIER HERNANDEZ: Sky Sports are reporting that West Ham are closing on on the former Manchester United striker.

IVAN PERISIC: Manchester United must be willing to let ANTHONY MARTIAL head the other way if they are to sign the Inter midfielder, writes the Independent.
