Paper Talk: United to tie up Perisic deal; Chelsea want Griezmann

Jose Mourinho has been pictured in Croatia and two players have been linked with moves to Man Utd, while Chelsea are chasing Mourinho’s top summer target Antoine Griezmann, all in the papers.

MOURINHO ON BUSINESS IN ZAGREB

Jose Mourinho is in Croatia and believed to be trying to tie up a move for Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic.

The Sun report the Man Utd gaffer flew to Zagreb to meet up with “long-time pal and transfer mastermind Predrag Mijatovic”.

Croatian publication Index.hr claim the reason for Mourinho’s visit was to watch Perisic and midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, 24.

Croatia defeated Ukraine 1-0 last night and while Brozovic played, Perisic was not involved.

The Sun though believe Mourinho is trying to seal a deal for Perisic with the help of Mijatovic, who has helped Mourinho get big deals over the line in the past.

Mijatovic apparently played a key role in Real Madrid signing Luka Modric from Tottenham in 2012 and he helped Mourinho land Nemanja Matic in 2014 for Chelsea.

 

CHELSEA MOVE FOR GRIEZMANN

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Man Utd’s top summer target Antoine Griezmann.

The Sun claim they “exclusively revealed that Chelsea are in the race for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann”.

But as far as any more details are concerned that is your lot. The article then goes on to list a possible Chelsea XI for next season which includes Jan Oblak in goal, Leonardo Bonucci, Radja Nainggolan and Griezmann.

Atletico striker Griezmann was yesterday reported to be very close to signing for United with the Manchester Evening News claiming the deal was almost agreed.

The France forward does have a buyout clause which is believed to be £86million and boss Diego Simeone says if that figure is met then he will likely be waving goodbye to the 26-year-old.

Paper Talk: Gimenez battle on for Prem pair

Man Utd and Liverpool are battling it out for an Atletico Madrid centre-back, while the Reds are also chasing Burnley’s Michael Keane, all in Friday’s papers.

DUO BATTLE FOR GIMENEZ

Manchester United and Liverpool are believed to be battling it out to sign Atletico Madrid central defender Jose Gimenez.

The Daily Mirror report that the Premier League pair are going “head to head” for the 22-year-old.

There is little other detail in the report other than Mourinho has been tracking the central defender for some time and that now Jurgen Klopp is also chasing the Uruguay international.

Gimenez has made 19 appearances this season, but only nine of those have been in La Liga with Diego Godin and Stefan Savic keeping him out of the side.

Injury has also plagued Gimenez this term with abductor muscle problem ruling him out for over a month in September and then a similar problem earlier this year sidelining him for another two weeks.

The player is believed to have a £39million buyout clause, but it’s understood neither club would be willing to meet that condition.

 

LIVERPOOL WANT KEANE TOO

Liverpool will also “join Everton in pursuit” of Michael Keane, according to the Daily Mail.

It’s clear that Jurgen Klopp is looking for a new centre-back this summer and Burnley man Keane is on the Anfield club’s radar after his solid England debut against Germany.

The former Man Utd man was impressive on Wednesday night in an almost faultless display and that, apparently, has been enough to persuade Liverpool to move for Keane.

Burnley look set to lose the 24-year-old at the end of the season, when he will have just 12 months remaining on his contract.

The Clarets are hoping for a fee in excess of £20million but Manchester City and Chelsea have been monitoring the player and his old club Manchester United, who have a sell-on clause, could also launch a move to bring him back to Old Trafford.
