Paul Pogba, David De Gea and Emerson are among those making headlines today.

What the papers say

Paul Pogba wanted to leave Manchester United over the summer with Spanish giants Real Madrid interested but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is in contact with agent Mino Raiola about extending the player's stay, The Express reports.

Juventus refused to sell 28-year-old winger Douglas Costa despite strong interest from Manchester United after Juve boss Maurizio Sarri blocked the Brazilian's transfer, the Daily Mail says.

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea, 28, is close to agreeing a new contract which will be worth close to the £290,000-a-week basic earned by Red  Devils team-mate Pogba, according to The Guardian.

Spurs wanted to bring in Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo, 20, according to the player's agent before they signed Giovani Lo Celso on loan instead, The Mail says.
