What the papers say
Newcastle are reportedly eager to open the door for Gareth Bale‘s return to the Premier League. According to the Daily Mail, the club are prepared to offer Real Madrid £53m for the 30-year-old if their £300m Saudi takeover goes through. However, they aren’t the only club willing to fork out big money for the Welshman, with Tottenham and Inter Miami also said to be eager to secure his signature.
Jadon Sancho is not the only young English talent said to be on Manchester United’s radar. Along with the 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund forward, the Daily Star reports the Red Devils are also keen on landing Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and Birmingham City’s Jude Bellingham when the summer transfer window opens.
Juventus have priced themselves out of a deal for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba after implementing a self-imposed salary cap. According to the Daily Mail, the Italian club have introduced a £7.9m-a-year salary cap in order to save money amid the coronavirus pandemic. The decision effectively rules out any possibility of an Italian return for Pogba.
