What the papers say

With Claudio Ranieri's reign over at Fulham, talks is now moving to who is in line to replace him.

Meanwhile, Chelsea could be facing a managerial battle of their own, with Juventus said to be moving in on top target Zinedine Zidane. With Massimiliano Allegri rumoured to be leaving the Italian giants in the summer, Chelsea can't afford to waste any time if they want Zidane to replace Maurizio Sarri in the summer, The Sun says.

At Manchester United, and the club may have to be prepared to make David De Gea one of their highest-paid players if they are to keep the goalkeeper at Old Trafford long term. The Telegraph says the 28-year-old wants his terms brought in line with Alexis Sanchez, whose contract is worth around £500,000 a week including bonuses and image rights.

Sticking with United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's tenure as caretaker manager looks set to become a permanent fixture at the end of the season, the Mirror reports. According to the paper, the club's hierarchy want to reward the former striker for transforming a struggling Manchester United side into a team with 12 wins out of 15 since Jose Mourinho's exit in December.
