What the papers say
West Ham and England midfielder Declan Rice is keen to join Manchester United, according to the Manchester Evening News. The 22-year-old is reported to have quizzed United players Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw about aspects of the club while on England duty last month. Rice, who is contracted until 2024, would not come cheap, with Hammers boss David Moyes estimating he is worth far more than £100million.
Barcelona have entered the race to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, Mundo Deportivo reports. The Catalan giants are said to prefer to sign the 20-year-old Norway international this summer, but are willing to wait until next year if that is not possible. Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are some of the other clubs who have been linked with him.
Everton’s Moise Kean could be heading back to his old club Juventus, Gazzetta dello Sport reports. The Toffees reportedly want £43.5m for the 21-year-old Italy forward, who is currently out on loan at Paris St Germain. The paper claims Everton would also consider a swap deal with Juventus involving either France midfielder Adrien Rabiot or Turkey centre-back Merih Demiral.
