What the papers say

Real Madrid are plotting a £60million move for Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, the Sun reports. The paper says the Spanish team want the France captain as a replacement for Costa Rica’s Keylor Navas. If Spurs chairman Daniel Levy agrees to sell, he would demand close to the world-record £67million Liverpool paid Roma to sign Brazilian stopper Alisson last week, the paper adds.

Anthony Martial wants to leave Manchester United but stay in the Premier League, putting clubs such as Chelsea and Tottenham on high alert, according to the Sun. United are prepared to sell the 22-year-old attacker, but only if he moves abroad rather than joining a rival in England, the paper says, meaning the Frenchman could go head-to-head with United’s top brass.

Jose Mourinho is said to be considering alternative targets to Chelsea’s Brazilian winger Willian, such as Eintracht Frankfurt winger Ante Rebic. The Independent reports that the Croatian World Cup star has attracted the Manchester United manager’s attention, with Mourinho keen to bring in the type of wide player he feels is essential to his system this summer.
