What the papers say

Tottenham are looking at options to cover for the injured Harry Kane. According to The Independent, the likes of AC Milan’s Poland international Krzysztof Piatek, Napoli’s former Spurs striker Fernando Llorente and Crystal Palace forward Christian Benteke have been touted as possible signings for Jose Mourinho’s side.

Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon are at loggerheads over Bruno Fernandes, with United offering £50m plus £10m in add-ons for the 25-year-old Portugal midfielder while Sporting are holding out for £64m up front, the Daily Mail reports.

Thomas Muller could be leaving Bayern Munich after 20 years with the club, with Manchester United ready to move for the 30-year-old Germany forward in the summer, says The Sun.
