  • Mbappe off?

    French International striker Kylian Mbappe has informed Paris-Saint Germain he wants to leave the French giants according to reports.

    Mbappe is thought to be targeting a move to either England or Spain, with Manchester United and Liverpool interesting the World Cup winner, according to The Times.

    Mbappe joined PSG in 2018, signing for £165m from Monaco, the second highest fee paid for a footballer.

  • SUMMER SALE

    Liverpool need to sell their outcasts before bringing in Bayern Munich's Thiago, according to Jamie Carragher.

    The Premier League champions are looking to offload at least four players before the transfer market deadline on October 5.

    Carragher told Sky Sports: “Liverpool have got three or four players in the squad they are looking to move on.

    “It seems like they have to sell before they buy, that was the case with Dejan Lovren. He had to leave before a left-back could come in.

    “Thiago would give Liverpool's midfield something different, no doubt.

    “Liverpool lost players to bring Van Dijk in and the goalkeeper.

    “There's no point buying for the sake of it, but I do feel they need someone to supplement the front three.

    “I think the huge clamour for Thiago is a little bit disrespectful to Liverpool's current midfield three.”

  • Mbappe is thought to have an interest in playing for the Red Devils while previously revealing his admiration for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp.

    He said in January: “What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing.

    “They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like ‘we play again, we play again’.

    “When you watch you think everything’s easy, but that’s not easy.

    “The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.

  • IN FOR THE KYL

    Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe has stunned club chiefs by telling them he wants to leave next summer, according to reports.

    And the France World Cup winner is plotting a shock move to La Liga or the Premier League.

    The revelation could spark a transfer scramble with Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid all in the mix.

    Mbappe, who permanently moved to PSG for £165million in 2018, has two years left on his deal in the French capital.

    The Times write how he has informed PSG he wants to play one more season giving them a final opportunity to generate a transfer fee.

  • GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Premier League clubs are calling a halt to transfer business amid growing fears about a second wave of coronavirus.

    The impact of the pandemic is a major factor in Manchester United’s reluctance to pay Borussia Dortmund £100million for Jadon Sancho.

    And the uncertainty about when or if fans will be able to return, not to mention the possibility of a new lockdown, is putting the frighteners on almost every club except big-spending Chelsea.

    A source said: “Covid is back and everyone is s***ting themselves.

    “Most clubs have spent all their money and those that haven’t are concerned about doing business in the current situation.”

    Elsewhere, Harry Redknapp exclusively told SunSport Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden were stupid and senseless for their actions while away with England.

    He said: “What they did by sneaking two women into the England hotel last weekend was not just silly, rash behaviour by two boisterous young lads, high on life.

    “In the current circumstances, they could have brought all manner of problems into the bio-secure bubble of the England camp.

    “The fallout could have gone way beyond embarrassment and shame. It was orchestrated, pre-planned deceit.

    “We all know what happens when boy meets girl, a few drinks are taken and then things occur. But this wasn’t that.

    “They were stupid and senseless.”

    In transfers, SunSport can exclusively reveal Said Benrahma is ready to join Crystal Palace as they look set to win the £20million race for the Brentford flier.

    Benrahma, 25, wants to play in the Premier League and is also happy to stay in the London area.

    Elsewhere, James Rodriguez has one of the best left feet EVER — and that comes from a man who was team-mates with Ryan Giggs and Gareth Bale.

    Dimitar Berbatov played with the new Everton star at Monaco in 2014 and saw first-hand the Colombian at the peak of his powers.

    Former Tottenham ace Berbatov exclusively told SunSport: “His left foot is magic, one of the best left feet ever, honestly.”

    SunSport can also exclusively reveal Leicester will have to pay a stunning £50million for Bournemouth star David Brooks.

    Bournemouth have collected millions from sales already and are digging in for top money for Brooks, 23, who is vital in their promotion bid.

    Elsewhere, Hugo Lloris says Spurs are turning into the “bunch of c***s”  Jose Mourinho wants them to be.

    In one of the highlights of Amazon’s fly-on-the-wall documentary series All Or Nothing, Mourinho was shown telling his players in X-rated terms nice guys don’t win.

    Club captain Lloris, 33, said: “You know it doesn’t mean off the pitch you are not a good guy.

    “But when you are on the field you have to do everything.

    “And everything means to have this personality to be naughty, to get the winning taste.”

    Finally, Manchester City hope Sergio Aguero will be fit for the start of the season after a rapid recovery from injury.

    The Argentine striker, 32, had knee surgery in late June and was expected to miss the beginning of the campaign.

    But he has made quick progress in his rehabilitation.

    And he could now be available to boss Pep Guardiola for their clash with Wolves on September 21.

    SunSport understands Aguero is now pain free and his mobility is improving.

     

  • NEW WING KING – EXCLUSIVELY

    Ryan Giggs believes Mason Greenwood can handle the pressure of taking on his famous No 11 shirt — because he is so good he can score twice a game.

    Greenwood has been handed the number worn for two decades by Manchester United legend Giggs on the eve of a season where he is expected to dazzle.

    The Wales boss said: “He’s nearly already scored more goals than I did, so there’s no pressure in that respect. But no, I don’t think he’ll feel the pressure of the number.

    “He’s a brilliant player, who I don’t think he even looks like scoring every game — I think he’s going to score two every game, he’sthat much of a threat.

  • UPWARD SERG – EXCLUSIVELY

    Manchester City hope Sergio Aguero will be fit for the start of the season after a rapid recovery from injury.

  • JAD ENOUGH

    Premier League clubs are calling a halt to transfer business amid growing fears about a second wave of coronavirus.

    The impact of the pandemic is a major factor in Manchester United’s reluctance to pay Borussia Dortmund £100million for Jadon Sancho.

    And the uncertainty about when or if fans will be able to return, not to mention the possibility of a new lockdown, is putting the frighteners on almost every club except big-spending Chelsea.

  • HUGO SWEARS BY ADVICE

    Hugo Lloris says Spurs are turning into the “bunch of c***s”Jose Mourinho wants them to be.

    Club captain Lloris, 33, said: “You know it doesn’t mean off the pitch you are not a good guy.

  • WELL SAID

    Said Benrahma is ready to join Crystal Palace as they look set to win the £20million race for the Brentford flier.

    The Eagles have waited weeks for the right moment to go in for the Algerian wide-man and are keen to avoid an auction.

    Now Palace have stepped in after main rivals Aston Villa and West Ham turned down the chance of snapping up the exciting and unpredictable winger.

    Benrahma, 25, wants to play in the Premier League and is also happy to stay in the London area.

    So Palace could be able to pull off their latest coup shortly, having already signed fellow Championship star Eberechi Eze from QPR.

  • RED FLAG

    Harry Redknapp exclusively told SunSport Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden were stupid and senseless for their actions while away with England.

    He said: “What they did by sneaking two women into the England hotel last weekend was not just silly, rash behaviour by two boisterous young lads, high on life.

    “In the current circumstances, they could have brought all manner of problems into the bio-secure bubble of the England camp.

  • ROD HOT – EXCLUSIVE

    James Rodriguez has one of the best left feet EVER — and that comes from a man who was team-mates with Ryan Giggs and Gareth Bale.

    Dimitar Berbatov played with the new Everton star at Monaco in 2014 and saw first-hand the Colombian at the peak of his powers.

    Former Tottenham ace Berbatov said: “His left foot is magic, one of the best left feet ever, honestly.

    “I wasn’t surprised he went to Everton. Sometimes you need to take one step back to step forward.

    “He didn’t play much at Real Madrid and he now needs a place to go where he will know that he is going to be a starter.”

  • LATE SERG

    Manchester City hope Sergio Aguero will be fit for the start of the season after a rapid recovery from injury.

    The Argentine striker, 32, had knee surgery in late June and was expected to miss the beginning of the campaign.

    But he has made quick progress in his rehabilitation.

    And he could now be available to boss Pep Guardiola for their clash with Wolves on September 21.

    SunSport understands Aguero is now pain free and his mobility is improving.

  • LEIC IS MORE – EXCLUSIVE

    Leicester will have to pay a stunning £50million for Bournemouth star David Brooks.

    Manchester United and Tottenham are also keeping tabs on the Cherries star.

    Bournemouth have collected millions from sales already and are digging in for top money for Brooks, 23, who is vital in their promotion bid.

    The relegated outfit are more open to selling Josh King.

  • RAYA HOPE – EXCLUSIVE

    Arsenal are ready to up their bid for Brentford keeper David Raya.

    The Gunners will go as high as £10million for the Spaniard, who would be Bernd Leno’s back-up.

    Brentford may sell as Raya — who turns 25 on Tuesday — is keen on the chance of Prem football.

    His arrival would also allow Arsenal to clear Emiliano Martinez’s move to Aston Villa.

    The Bees plan to look at Charlton’s Dillon Phillips as a replacement.

  • NEY MORE NIKE

    Neymar has become the newest face of Puma after ending his 15-year link with Nike.

    And the Brazil ace says his new ties with the firm are inspired by his admiration for some of the greatest players in football history.

    The PSG star, 28, is set to don the firm’s latest boot range, known as The King in tribute to some of the icons

    His new Puma affiliation was announced on the company’s web site with a banner which read “The king is back” and “Welcome to the family Neymar Jr”.

    And he cited legends Pele, Johan Cruyff, Eusebio and Diego Maradona – all noted for wearing Puma in the past – as his inspirations.

  • DALOT FUTURE

    Manchester United right back Diogo Dalot could have his future decided as soon as today, according to reports.

    There are a number absentees from the United squad, including first choice right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

    Wan-Bissaka missing could give Dalot his chance to finally prove his worth in the red shirt, he comes with a lot of hype and praise.

    Dalot will be hoping to feature this afternoon against Aston Villa, it's time to either sink or swim.

    West Ham are rumoured to be interested in the United man.

  • GOT THE FEELS

    Joao Felix has emerged as an unexpected Jadon Sancho alternative for Manchester United, according to reports.

    The Red Devils' chase of a Sancho deal has been well documented this summer, with the 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund star having scored 17 goals and registered 17 assists for the Bundesliga giants in the league last term.

    But the Daily Star report Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could move for Portugal international Felix instead, who cost Atletico Madrid £113m a year ago when he moved from Benfica.

    United, it seems, are willing to turn to the youngster if they fail to bring Sancho to Old Trafford.

  • LIVERPOOL EYE DOKU

    Liverpool are eying a £23million move for Jeremy Doku, according to reports.

    The 18-year-old Belgian forward plays his trade for Anderlecht and he also already has a senior goal under his belt for the national side.

    Doku has already made 34 appearances for the Belgian side and it's no wonder massive clubs are tracking his progress.

  • IRON FIST

    West Ham fans have protested outside the London Stadium ahead of tonight’s game with Newcastle.

    Around 25 supporters gathered to vent their frustration against the club’s owners on the opening day of the season.

    Hammers fans fumed when academy star Grady Diangana was sold to West Brom for £18million earlier this month.

    The winger’s exit also prompted an emotional response from club captain Mark Noble, who tweeted he was “gutted, angry and sad” about the decision.

    Anti-board demonstrators gathered outside the gates of the London Stadium before Saturday's behind-closed-doors clash, ending a temporary halt on protests.

    And they want co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan, plus vice-chair Karren Brady, to quit.

  • GET HIM ZIN

    Oleksandr Zinchenko's agent confirmed the Manchester City ace would be open to being part of a swap deal for Kalidou Koulibaly.

    The Ukranian’s agent, Alan Prudnikov, told Radio Marte: “Zinchenko in the Koulibaly negotiation? He is on the radar of Naples, three years ago there were meetings.

    “But for this, we have to ask Koulibaly’s agent, of whom we have the utmost respect as well as the Manchester City management.

    “What if City called me to include Zinchenko in the negotiation? If it were to do so, we would listen to Napoli’s proposal and try to see what to do.”

  • JUVE LOSE

    Luis Suarez could be set to perform a surprise u-turn on his move to Juventus despite agreeing personal terms with the Italian giants.

    The out-of-favour Barcelona striker is now thought to be keen on a switch to Atletico Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

    The Serie A title-holders are said to be finalising a two-year deal worth £6million a season.

    And that could rise to an eye-watering £9m if certain bonuses are met.

    But Deportes Cuatro claims the former Liverpool icon wants to mull over all offers before making a firm decision on a move which could be the last of his playing career.

    And while the Uruguayan is thought to be tempted by Juve’s offer, a late bid by Atletico has given him pause for thought.

  • UPWARD SERG

    Manchester United's pursuit of Sergio Reguilon has been given a huge boost with Sevilla reportedly closing in on a replacement left-back.

    Sporting Lisbon’s Marcos Acuna is said to be in advanced talks with the LaLiga side who appear to have given up on the chance of signing Reguilon from Real Madrid permanently.

    United are said to be plotting a move for the £27million rated 23-year-old who spent last season on loan at Sevilla from Real.

    And he would “love” to move to Old Trafford, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

    With Sevilla close to landing 28-year-old Argentine Acuna – according to Portuguese outlet A Bola – there is now “no chance” of Reguilon going back on a permanent basis.

  • NO THOMAS NO PARTEY

    According to reports, Arsenal remain in the hunt for a star midfielder.

    They have been admirers of both Thomas Partey of Atletico Madrid and Houssem Aouar of Lyon.

    The North London side are reportedly still weighing up the options, and will decide whether to bid the estimated £45million it will take to prize Partey from the clutches of Atletico.

    They are also looking into putting an offer in for Aouar, who for a while has been one of Lyon's stand out performers.
