What the papers say
Marcos Rojo is reportedly on the verge of ending his lacklustre stint with Manchester United. According to The Sun, who cite a report from ESPN, the 30-year-old has agreed to personal terms with Boca Juniors, but would need to convince United to let him go on a free transfer. The defender spent the second half of last season on loan with Estudiantes and is yet to feature for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this campaign.
Frank Lampard’s rocky situation may jeopardise Chelsea’s pursuit of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice. The 21-year-old has been high on the Chelsea manager’s wish list for a while. But the Daily Star, via The Athletic, reports the club’s interest in Rice is contingent on Lampard keeping his job, with club bosses believed to be unconvinced of Rice’s potential.
The paper also reports Bayern Munich are closing in on a contract extension for England Under-21 midfielder Jamal Musiala. Citing Sky Germany, the paper says club bosses have been impressed by the 17-year-old’s recent form and are keen on locking him in through 2025.
