Manchester United may be preparing to switch focus from Jadon Sancho to Gareth Bale, while Divock Origi is attracting plenty of attention.

What the papers say

Manchester United's inability to sign Jadon Sancho could lead to the club making an offer for Gareth Bale. According to The Sun, the club has just about lost patience in their pursuit of Sancho and are instead ready to pivot to a short-term deal for the 31-year-old Real Madrid forward.

Fenerbahce has reportedly approached Liverpool about the status of striker Divock Origi. The Daily Mirror reports the Turkish club is one of a number of teams believed to be interested in the 25-year-old, including Aston Villa, Newcastle and Brighton.

The Evening Standard says Arsenal goalkeeper Emi Martinez is on the verge of completing a £20million move to Aston Villa. The 28-year-old opted to leave Emirates Stadium at the end of last season in search of regular first-team football – which the papers reports he has been guaranteed by Villa bosses.
