Gareth Bale's agent speaks about the chances of a Premier League return and the possibility of an England goalkeeper moving to Liverpool.

What the papers say

Embattled star Gareth Bale has no chance of transferring from Real Madrid to Bayern Munich, the 29-year-old's agent has reportedly said.  Jonathan Barnett told Sky Sports "obviously, Gareth's situation at Real hasn't improved," in comments carried by the Daily Mirror. And he acknowledged the Welshman and former Tottenham forward "could fit" in as part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's revitalisation of Manchester United.  "I think he could do very well – he is still one of the best players in the world, but it is very unlikely," Barnett said.

Joachim Andersen's asking price of £31.2million was too high for Arsenal, but the Gunners' loss may be Tottenham's gain. The Sampdoria defender is viewed as a replacement for the Spurs' Toby Alderweireld, according to the Daily Star. But the Danish 23-year-old is also reportedly being considered by Serie A clubs AC Milan, Juventus and Napoli.

Liverpool are believed to be interested in England goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, who is on the outer at Southampton. The 30-year-old was player of the season for the Saints in 2017-18, but lost his starting spot to Angus Gunn in 2019.  The Reds will soon allow Simon Mignolet to leave and manager Jurgen Klopp is searching for a back-up custodian, the Evening Standard reports.

Norwegian teenager Oscar Bobb is about to be offered a contract by Manchester City, the Daily Mail says. The 15-year-old gained prominence at Lyn Oslo before his move to Portugal's Porto was blocked, leading him to return to Norway to his current home at Valerenga. City first began talks with the midfielder in 2018.
