Friday Papers: Sanchez, Rashford, Ceballos

Marcus Rashford, Nicolo Zaniolo and Alexis Sanchez make up the back-page gossip on Friday.

What the papers say

Marcus Rashford could be heading for Barcelona as the Spanish giants line up a £100million move for the Manchester United forward, the Daily Mail says. With just one year remaining on his current contract, it remains to be seen whether the 21-year-old will commit to a future at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils said to be considering a £300,000-a-week offer for the England international.

Tottenham's summer overhaul is likely to include a raft of younger players, according to the Mail, with Roma's Nicolo Zaniolo said to be top of the club's wishlist. After two lacklustre transfer windows, Spurs are looking to bring in a host of proven young talent with their £60million budget, the paper says.

Inter Milan could offer Alexis Sanchez a way out of his Manchester United turmoil, but on one condition, the Independent reports. The 30-year-old's £500,000-a-week wages have long been a sticking point in negotiations and have left a question mark over his future after a tough spell in the north-west. Now the Italian side are said to be open to a deal – but only if the Chilean drops his wage demands.

West Ham are considering whether to snap up Real Madrid's Dani Ceballos on a permanent basis, according to the Mirror. It is thought Madrid could prefer sending their 22-year-old star on a season-long to the London Stadium, but could be persuaded by a permanent transfer if the Hammers are willing to agree to a deal in the region of £18million.

Social media round-up

Players to watch

A post shared by Richarlison (@richarlison) on

Richarlison: The 21-year-old Everton forward could be among at least five players targeted by Manchester United this summer, the Independent says, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to turna round his slumping squad for next term.

Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka: The defenders are wanted by Everton for at least another year, the Mirror reports. Both will be out of contract in the summer, but boss Marco Silva wants both to stay for the 2019-20 season.
