Jose Mourinho could be lining up his next job.

What the papers say

Jose Mourinho could be set to lead Inter Milan from next season, the Mirror says. Talks are due to take place between the former Manchester United boss and the Italian club's director, the paper says, with the potential tie-up coming almost nine years after the 56-year-old guided the club to victory in Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League.

Marcus Rashford looks ready to commit his long-term future to Manchester United as he closes in on an improved £50million deal, the Star reports. It says the 21-year-old could double his wages under the new deal, which would see him remain at Old Trafford until 2024.

Sticking with United, the Manchester Evening News says the club also have three other players in mind for the summer transfer window as they seek to bolster their defensive options. Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly, Inter's Milan Skriniar and Sampdoria's Joachim Andersen are tipped as the main targets come the end of the season.
