What the papers say

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany appears set to sign a contract extension at the club on reduced wages, the Daily Mail says. Discussions have been ongoing over a new one-year deal, with the 32-year-old expected to agree a wage cut in order to stay at the Etihad Stadium amid injury struggles, the paper adds.

City boss Pep Guardiola is said to have earmarked the 22-year-old as his number one target as a successor to Fernandinho. The paper claims City are preparing a £70million bid for the France international in the summer.
