Football rumours from the media
Could a move from the USA to Egypt be in line for Zlatan Ibrahimovic?
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been noticed by Pyramids FC and could be heading for a new start with the little-known Egyptian side, the Mirror says. Citing a report by Record, it says the former Manchester United forward could be swapping LA Galaxy for Africa in the next few days.
What the papers say
Anthony Martial looks to be dragging his heels over his future at Manchester United until speculation over Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Old Trafford is cleared up, the Sun says. The French winger has started just once so far this season, and it appears as though his decision could hinge on whether he would be guaranteed more playing time under a potential new boss.
Ajax player Frenkie De Jong has been in high demand of late and it now looks as though Tottenham have their eyes on the Dutchman. The Sun reports that Spurs are preparing to make a move next year.
Liverpool are targeting Adrien Rabiot, according to the Daily Express. The 23-year-old’s deal in France ends in January and despite interest from Barcelona, the Reds are hopeful of being favourites to land the Paris St Germain star.
