Manchester United want Bayern Munich duo as Chelsea close in on winger: Premier League transfer rumours

Wilfried Zaha and Jay Rodriguez could be on the move, while Real Madrid put a huge price tag on Luka Modric.

The future of Anthony Martial looks to be away from Old Trafford, according to reports. The Daily Mirror say the 22-year-old will be offered to Bayern Munich as part of a deal which could see Robert Lewandowski move the other way, while Bild says the forward will be used in a deal for defender Jerome Boateng.

What the papers say

Crystal Palace could lose striker Wilfried Zaha to Chelsea with the player rejecting a new contract and considering lodging an official transfer request, the Daily Mirror reports.

Burnley will need to pay £20m if they want to bolster their strike force with Jay Rodriguez, who is currently with newly-relegated West Brom, the Guardian reports.
