Paper Talk: Mourinho wants quartet in £300m spending spree

Manchester United have “cleared a significant hurdle” in their pursuit of Antoine Griezmann, while Arsenal have made Alexis Sanchez a huge contract offer, all in today’s papers.¬†



The fact that Manchester United’s players are now commenting about Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann seems to be a far bigger indicator than the Daily Mirror’s latest “news”.

The tabloid have this morning claimed that United are ready to activate Griezmann‚Äôs ¬£86million release clause at Atletico, and ‘yes’ we have read this several times before.

In March the Manchester Evening News said a deal was done, while the player’s representative Eric Olhats said a concrete approach had been made by a United in April.

Today’s report claims United “have cleared a significant hurdle” by winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions League.

And that appears to be the crux of the article.

More significantly though some of United’s players have started to talk about Griezmann.

‚ÄúGriezmann is a brilliant player, a phenomenon,‚ÄĚ said Ander Herrera. ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs a star and all the teams in the world would want him. However, Griezmann is still an Atletico Madrid player and I respect Atletico and their fans.

‚ÄúI‚Äôve said it in the past, after Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, he is in that group of those that can become their possible successors.‚ÄĚ

And Juan Mata was encouraged by¬†Griezmann suggesting moving to United was a “six out of 10” chance.

‚ÄúWhen I was at school, a six out of 10 was considered OK ‚ÄĒ I would take that,‚ÄĚ said Mata¬†‚ÄúGriezmann is a great player and I like great players. He has quality, he gets goals.

‚ÄúI don‚Äôt know him, but he seems like a good person. I don‚Äôt know what will happen, but of course I like him.‚ÄĚ

The article also named Romelu Lukaku, Eric Dier, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and Michael Keane as United;s summer targets.


PAPER TALK ITALIA: Kessie saga sorted; City, United battle for Monaco man


Arsenal have made another offer to Alexis Sanchez in a bid to keep him away from Bayern Munich, according to a report.

The Daily Mail believes the Gunners have offered Sanchez £270,000 a week, just £30,000 away from the £300,000 the Chile forward is believed to be wanting.

The deal which is loaded with incentives is aimed at keeping Bayern at arm’s length, but the Germans, along with
Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are interested.

Sanchez is outo of contract next summer and has so far refused to sign an extension and more talks are planned after the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Speculation has already heightened this week after the Chile FA accidentally listed him as a Bayern player in their Confederations Cup squad list.

Ligue 1 starlets heading for Newcastle ? report

TEAMtalk understands Newcastle United are looking to tie up quick deals for Ligue 1 starlets Nicolas Pepe and Yann Kamorah.

The duo have been highlighted by Newcastle’s chief scout Graham Carr and Rafa Benitez is happy for them to come in, as he knows they are two top prospects.

Winger Pepe is 21, and already an Ivory Coast international, but he would not need a work permit as he is French born. He is currently with Angers in Ligue 1, who he helped finish a respectable 12th.

Kamorah, who is Ivorian by birth but plays for France, is considered one of the top striking prospects in the French top flight.

The 18-year-old scored five goals in 25 starts in his first full season, and much of that saw him pushed out wide, but he produced a series of fine displays.

Newcastle are facing major competition to land both players, but sources have confirmed to TEAMtalk that both players look to be on their way to Tyneside.

Paper Talk: Chelsea superstar may stay; Toon want Carvalho

Real Madrid have reportedly cooled their interest in signing a Chelsea attacker, while Newcastle have joined the race for a Sporting Lisbon midfielder, according to Thursday’s newspapers.


Real Madrid are ready to cool their interest in Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard, despite continued rumours that they will sign the Belgium star this summer.

The Spanish champions have reportedly turned their attentions to younger targets as they plan for the future, according to Spanish news outlet El Bernabeu.

While Hazard isn’t exactly a veteran, at just 26, Real’s top target is now believed to be Monaco’s star forward Kylian Mbappe, 18.

Real are also said to be concerned that Hazard’s arrival could hinder the development of one of their brightest young stars in 21-year-old Marco Asensio.


Newcastle have reportedly joined the hunt for Sporting Lisbon sensation William Carvalho.

Following their return to the Premier League, at the first time of asking, Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez is looking to add proven quality to his squad and a raid for Carvalho is said to be on the cards.

The 25-year-old has played more than 100 games for Sporting and has also been capped 31 times by Portugal.

The midfielder is said to have a £39m release clause in his contract but Sporting are unlikely to demand that much, according to O Jogo.

The Daily Star also reports that Man City and Arsenal are keen on the player, with City seeing him as an ideal long-term replacement for Yaya Toure.

Euro Paper Talk: Liverpool in defender talks; Utd move for Perisic

Man¬†Utd have tied up a ‚ā¨50m deal for an Inter Milan forward, while Lionel Messi has told Barcelona not to bother signing an Everton star, according to Wednesday’s European press.



Manchester United are reported to¬†an agreement in place that will see Croatian winger Ivan Perisic move to the club this summer in a ‚ā¨50m deal.

Jose Mourinho’s side have long been linked with the Inter Milan star and it’s claimed the deal will go through as soon as the transfer window opens on July 1.

Furthermore, the Gazzetta dello Sport¬†reports that Inter have already sounded out Monaco’s Thomas Lemar as a possible replacement.

It’s suggested Inter will use the money they pocket from Perisic to try to tempt the youngster from Guadeloupe to Serie A next term. Reports suggest sporting director Piero Ausilio has already made contact with the player‚Äôs representatives and is set to continue discussions in the coming weeks.

Gerard Deulofeu: Ditched by Everton

Lionel Messi has reportedly instructed Barcelona not to waste their time bringing Everton midfielder Gerard Deulofeu back to the club this summer.

The Spain star had been deemed surplus to requirements at Goodison Park under Ronald Koeman, but has found a new lease of life since joining AC Milan on loan in January.

The 23-year-old has thrived under the stewardship of coach Vincenzo Montella so much so, that Barcelona, the club that sold him to the Toffees, want to activate the buy-back clause inserted in the original deal.

That deal is set at just ‚ā¨10million, but reports in Spain suggest Messi is dead against it.

According to Dario Gol, Messi has told Barca chiefs that he doesn’t think Deulofeu fits in with the club’s playing philosophy. They even claim Messi has already vetoed the move.

It goes on to say that the 29-year-old Messi is already thinking of ways the Blaugrana can wrestle the La Liga crown back from arch rivals Real Madrid next season, saying he does not want the job of having to carry the rest of the squad.

The report will further fuel reports that Messi has a major say on player investment at Barcelona. Last month we ran a story suggesting Messi had told Barcelona to target four stars and axe six this summer.

Newcastle full-back to miss the start of new campaign after groin surgery

Newcastle United defender Jamie Sterry will miss pre-season training after the full-back underwent a groin operation this week, the club have revealed.

INJURY NEWS: @JamieSterry2 has undergone a successful groin operation this week. More here:


‚ÄĒ Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) May 24, 2017

The 21-year-old suffered the injury setback just before the Magpies’ final home game of the season and although surgery was a success, Sterry is likely to miss the start of the Premier League campaign.

The highly-rated right-back spent the majority of last term on loan at Coventry where he impressed in his 20 appearances for the Sky Blues. He scored his first professional goal in an FA Cup first round tie against Morecambe.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez handed Sterry his top-flight debut on the last day of the 2015-16 season against Tottenham, with the youngster coming on for the final few minutes of the 5-1 win.

He signed a new four-year contract last August and has since made two more first-team appearances for the Magpies.
