Paper Talk: Liverpool, Arsenal among five teams chasing Real star

Liverpool and Arsenal are among five clubs looking to sign a Real Madrid creative midfielder this summer, while Tottenham are keen on a Watford  star, all in Thursday’s papers.

LIVERPOOL, ARSENAL IN BATTLE FOR REAL STAR

Liverpool and Arsenal are among five clubs being backed to sign Real Madrid forward Isco.

Real are heading towards a huge summer shake-up after a disastrous La Liga title defence, with several of the their top names set to be up for grabs.

One of those is Spain star Isco, who has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot under Zinedine Zidane – whose own future is also up in the air.

Both Jurgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger are believed to have shown an interest in the 25-year-old, while Manchester City, Juventus and Bayern Munich have also been touted as potential destinations for the player, according to AS.

Gunners boss Wenger is still looking at creative midfield options, despite Mesut Ozil signing a new deal with the club, although Jack Wilshere’s long-term future still remains unclear.

As for Klopp, the Reds chief is still looking for a central creative midfield force, after Philippe Coutinho’s exit, while he has doubts over Emre Can’s future and Adam Lallana has had his fair share of injury issues.

Lure of Leeds too big to resist for new boss Heckingbottom

Paul Heckingbottom says he could not resist the lure of Leeds – but his switch across Yorkshire has angered Barnsley.

Leeds announced Heckingbottom as their new head coach on Tuesday, less than a week after he signed a new contract at Oakwell.

The 40-year-old, who had been in charge of Barnsley since February 2016, agreed new terms with them on Friday.

But Heckingbottom has now swapped that rolling contract for an 18-month deal at Elland Road to replace Thomas Christiansen.

Predictably the news did not go down well at Barnsley, who said in a statement: “Barnsley Football Club are thoroughly disappointed to announce that Paul Heckingbottom has joined Leeds United.”

Chief executive Gauthier Ganaye added: “Yes, it was unexpected. Yes, it has come during an already complicated period. Yes, it will make things more difficult short term, but our club is full of resources and it is certainly not dependent on one man alone.”

Heckingbottom’s backroom staff of Jamie Clapham, Nathan Winder and Alex Bailey will all be joining him at Leeds. Under-23s coach Paul Harsley has been put in caretaker charge of Barnsley.

Ahead of his first training session with his new players, Heckingbottom told Sky Sports News: “I can’t wait to get started.

“It’s a big opportunity at a big football club and it’s something that you work hard for.

“What appealed was the size of the club. When I spoke to Victor (Orta, director of football) and the owners they were aligned with what I was thinking and how I liked to work.

“I’m presuming that’s the reason they thought I was right for the job as well, because I’m aligned with how they like to work, so hopefully that will be good for us going forward.”

Christiansen was sacked on Sunday after a 4-1 home defeat by Cardiff which made it seven matches without a win.

That poor run included an embarrassing third-round FA Cup exit at the hands of League Two Newport.

Leeds began the season with a seven-game unbeaten run, raising hopes of a promotion push, but they have slipped to 10th in the Championship.

Heckingbottom will be expected to swap Barnsley’s relegation battle for an assault on the play-offs – Leeds are currently six points behind sixth-placed Bristol City.

Heckingbottom will begin his Leeds tenure with a Yorkshire derby against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday. Barnsley will be the visitors to Elland Road on April 21.

The 40-year-old leaves Barnsley to move to Elland Road and has signed a contract that runs until the end of next season.

Leeds have fallen to 10th in the Championship and Heckingbottom leaves a side who sit 21st in the same division. Heckingbottom...

Heckingbottom to take Leeds training as appointment nears

Paul Heckingbottom is expected to take training of Leeds United’s first-team on Tuesday with his appointment as the club’s new head coach expected imminently.

The Whites have turned to the Barnsley boss after severing ties with Thomas Christiansen on Sunday night after failure to win a match since Boxing Day.

Heckingbottom travelled to West Yorkshire for talks with the club on Monday night and an announcement is expected soon with Leeds agreeing to pay the six-figure buy-out clause in the new Barnsley contract he signed just last week.

Heckingbottom’s appointment at Leeds appears to have divided fans with the Barnsley-born coach admitting his disliking of the club just a matter of weeks ago.

“It (Leeds) was always my favourite one [derby],” he said.

“When I was growing up, where I was from, you were a Barnsley fan or a Leeds fan when you played in the field behind my house.

“It was Leeds against Barnsley and the Leeds lads were always older than us and always used to kick smoke out of us. We hated Leeds and they hated us and that is how it was.

barnsley boss paul heckingbottom 3

“You understand the support they have got and the size of the club and the tradition as it was always rammed down your throat with them bragging about it.

“It is a team everyone loves to hate, but a big club with a big tradition. It is a big derby for us.”

Heckingbottom is expected to sign an initial 18-month deal to take charge at Elland Road and will face Sheffield United on Saturday lunchtime in his first assignment in charge.

Heckingbottom signs news deal to stay on as Barnsley boss

Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom has signed a new deal at the Sky Bet Championship club.

The Tykes have not disclosed the length of the contract for Barnsley-born Heckingbottom, who will celebrate two years in charge of the club on Monday.

The 40-year-old, who also played at Oakwell, guided the Yorkshire side to victory in the Football League Trophy final and promotion from League One during his first season at the helm.

Heckingbottom led Barnsley to a 14th-placed finish in the Championship last season, but the club are struggling in 19th this term, one point off the relegation zone.

Barnsley chief executive Gauthier Ganaye told the club’s official website: “This is recognition of Paul’s hard work for the last two seasons.

“Coaching and development is a large part of our model as well as targeting young players so we need to have a head coach who embraces this philosophy and knows how to develop these players, while competing in one of the most competitive leagues in the world.”
