What the papers say
Goalkeeper David De Gea is reportedly holding out for a salary of £350,000-a-week before committing his future to Manchester United. The Sun reports that the 27-year-old believes his earnings should put him on a level with the likes of Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez, with the club said to be playing hardball on his demands. De Gea’s current deal runs out next summer.
Paris St Germain star Neymar is unlikely to swap France for Manchester – because he would rather move to London, the Daily Express claims. The 26-year-old is said to have told friends he would prefer to head to Chelsea or Arsenal over United or City if he ever decides to join the Premier League.
Players to watch
