    The England international is likely to join Manchester United, who have been keeping tabs on the star winger ever since last year.

    However, the 21-year-old is currently focused on this summer's Euro 2020

    HALA MADRID

    Carlo Ancelotti has announced his return to Real Madrid ever since his exit in 2015 when he moved to Bayern Munich.

    Ancelotti shared a tweet directed to Real's fans who remember him well for winning the 2014 Champions League trophy.

    The Italian boss also issued the following statement to Everton's supporters: "I would like to thank Everton FC, my players and the supporters for giving me the opportunity to manage this fantastic and historical club.

    WALK THE LINE

    Gary Lineker believes Tottenham star Harry Kane could join Manchester United, Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain.

    Lineker told Goal: “I would love to see him at Barcelona but they are going for [Sergio] Aguero and are short on cash at the moment.

    “I think it is between Manchester City, Manchester United and maybe PSG.

    “They have [Mauricio] Pochettino and he would win things, guaranteed. I think it is more likely that one of the Manchester clubs can afford him outside of Chelsea.

    “I don’t think he would go to Chelsea and do that to the Tottenham fans but who knows"

    TOP POG

    Manchester United ace Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola met with Juventus vice-president Pavel Nedved and spoke about his client.

    That is according to Tuttosport, who claim that there is still talk of Pogba coming back to Juve this summer.

    There is even speculation suggesting that there could be a swap deal involving United legend Cristiano Ronaldo.

    That would see Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford since his departure for Real Madrid in 2009

    DE-FFICULT COMPETITION

    Barcelona are also interested in signing Sevilla ace Jules Kounde in the summer transfer window.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, Barca are looking to compete against Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal over Kounde.

    The talented centre-back stood out this season in LaLiga with some stunning performances in defence.

    The France international is now set to compete in Euro 2020 for his country

    JULES KOUND MOVE

    Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are set for an intense bidding war over Sevilla ace Jules Kounde.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, the Andalusians won’t stand in Kounde’s way if a potential suitor meets their release clause.

    The talented defender, though, is rated at £56million this summer transfer window.

    The 22-year-old is currently on international duty with France ahead of the delayed Euro 2020

    TRIPPIER REACTS

    Atletico Madrid ace Kieran Trippier was linked with a move to Manchester United in January and reports suggest the Red Devils could rekindle their interest this summer.

    However, Trippier insists he is satisfied in Spain as he just won LaLiga with Atletico.

    The England international said ahead of Euro 2020: “I’m enjoying myself so much out there. I’m just fully focused on doing the best I can for my club. I’m absolutely delighted I won the title out there.

    “People might not focus on me as much because I’m out there in Spain, the Premier League is the Premier League, but I’m enjoying myself, loving it, my family are enjoying it, there’s sunshine every single day so I just need to keep doing as well as I can for Atletico.

    “I’m delighted I’ve done that and now I’m part of England. I know Gareth watches the games along with his staff, so for me it’s just about doing as well as I can at the highest level to try to be selected for as long as I can with the national team”

    ON HOLD

    Arsenal are going to make a bid for Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana only if his appeal is successful, according to Football London.

    Onana was handed a 12-month suspension in February after the banned substance Furosemide was found in his urine.

    In a statement, Ajax claimed the 25-year-old shot-stopper had accidentally taken one of his wife’s pills while feeling unwell.

    The Dutch champions and the Cameroon international have appealed the decision

    RONALDO BOOST

    Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is highly unlikely to join Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.

    That is according to The Athletic, who claim Ronaldo may not be moving to Paris despite his uncertain future at Juve.

    The legendary forward has been linked with a sensational return to Manchester United in the summer.

    The Portugal international amassed a total of 118 goals and 69 assists in 292 appearances throughout his six-year stint at United

    PLACING A CAL

    Manchester United and Arsenal are open to sign AC Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu in the summer transfer window.

    According to Tuttosport, the Gunners and United would be keen to land Calhanoglu as the playmaker will be available for free after he and Milan failed to agree new terms.

    The Turkey international is seen as Martin Odegaard’s replacement at No10 in north London.

    The Red Devils, though, are not currently looking for an attacking midfielder

  • Kostas Lianos

    SAUL SEARCHING

    Atletico Madrid ace Saul Niguez would prefer a move to Manchester United in the summer.

    Saul celebrated his second LaLiga title with Atletico a few weeks ago but often saw his name omitted from Diego Simeone’s starting line-up.

    Thus, according to the Daily Star, the star midfielder is open to a move and has been linked with United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

    However, the Spain international would rather join the Red Devils in the summer

    SAN-THING’S COOKING

    Manchester United have ‘mostly agreed’ personal terms with Borussia Dortmund star winger Jadon Sancho.

    Sancho’s representatives are "expecting" a £77million transfer to get over the line in the coming months.

    According to Sport1, Dortmund have dropped their previous £108m asking price from last year.

    However, a formal transfer bid is yet to be made by United

    ON IT

    Arsenal are keeping tabs on Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana, despite his recent ban.

    Onana was handed a 12-month suspension in February after the forbidden substance Furosemide was found in his system.

    In a statement, Ajax suggested the 25-year-old had accidentally taken one of his wife’s pills while feeling unwell.

    The Eredivisie champions and the Cameroon international have appealed the decision which could play a major role in his final transfer fee.

    According to NOS, Arsenal will still be able to land him for a bargain £1.7million fee if his ban is upheld.

    If Onana’s suspension is shortened or overturned, then the Gunners will be forced to splash £7.75m in the summer transfer window

  • Kostas Lianos

    AD-ED TO THE LIST

    Wolves star Adama Traore has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

    Traore struggled to shine this season as he only managed a mere three goals and three assists in 41 appearances across all competitions.

    However, the Blues are still keeping tabs on the forward, who has received some glowing reviews from the likes of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Spain boss Luis Enrique.

    The 25-year-old is set to compete in Euro 2020 for the Spain national team

    KANE STOP HIM

    Tottenham superstar Harry Kane won't change his mind about leaving even if Mauricio Pochettino returns to Spurs.

    The north Londoners are in talks to bring Pochettino back to the helm where he enjoyed tremendous success and played a major part in Kane's development.

    The England captain had a wonderful relationship with the Argentinean manager but seems so determined to leave and challenge for silverware that a reunion won't make him think twice, according to The Times.

    Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea lead the race to sign the star striker

    LOT TO LOOK FORWARD TO

    Carlo Ancelotti has left Everton as he's been confirmed as Real Madrid's new manager.

    Ancelotti returns to Real, where he won the 2014 Champions League, to replace Zinedine Zidane at the helm.

    The Toffees confirmed the Italian manager's exit in a statement on the club's website.

    It read: "Everton can confirm that Carlo Ancelotti has left his position as manager to take up the role of Head Coach at Real Madrid.

    "Everton would like to place on record its thanks to Carlo for his service to the Club over the past 18 months.

    "The Club will begin the process of appointing a new manager immediately and will provide updates in due course"

    MORNING FOOTY FANS

    Gareth Southgate announced his final 26-man England squad for Euro 2020 yesterday.

    The Three Lions boss named FOUR right-backs – Kyle Walker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kieran Trippier and Reece James – and axed seven from his original 33-man group.

    Jesse Lingard was one of the most surprising exclusions along with Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins.

    The seven to be dropped were: Aaron Ramsdale, Ben Godfrey, Lingard, Watkins, Ben White, James Ward-Prowse and Mason Greenwood – who pulled out injured.

    And asked how the rejected stars reacted, Southgate said: “James was brilliant. As was Jesse, as was Ollie. Totally professional, which is the character of the players.

    “All of the players that are here will be on the standby list. We can only change now on the basis of injuries so those guys will be training with us. And they’ll be involved in the matches as well. Not only because if we have an issue they need to be ready.

    “But they deserve it. Their commitment to stay with the group and their respect to their teammates to want to be here shows what playing for England means to this group of players.

    “And I think it’s important the public know that as sometimes people dismiss the importance of England caps and what it means to players.”

    Elsewhere, Carlo Ancelotti has left Everton to become Real Madrid manager.

    Ancelotti, who joined Everton on a four-and-a-half-year contract in December 2019, said: “I would like to thank the Board of Directors, the players, and the Evertonians for the tremendous support they have all given me during my time at the club.

    “I have complete respect for everyone associated with Everton and hope they can achieve the exciting opportunities they have in front of them.

    “While I have enjoyed being at Everton I have been presented with an unexpected opportunity which I believe is the right move for me and my family at this time.”

    Finally, William Gallas believes Mikel Arteta should leave Arsenal.

    Gallas is confident Arteta will develop into an elite manager one day – but reckons it was a ‘mistake’ to appoint the Spaniard as the Gunners missed out on European football for the first time since 1995-96.

    The Frenchman, 43, told SunSport: “Mikel Arteta was not ready yet to manage a club like Arsenal. Okay, he was assistant coach at Manchester City, but he had never managed a team. It is completely different.

    “The board made a mistake picking him. I’m sure he will be a great manager but you need to have experience to manage a big club.

    “To be honest, it is a great shame for the Arsenal fans after finishing eighth.

    “Arsenal is not the same Arsenal we knew 18, 20 years ago. We had players who were strong with strong personalities.”

    'TURN IT INTO A POSITIVE' – EXCLUSIVE

    Bobby Zamora knows how those England players reeling from major-tournament heartbreak are feeling today.

    Zamora was left out of the Three Lions’ 2010 World Cup squad – although it was his own decision, rather than that of manager Fabio Capello.

    Zamora made the second of his two appearances for England the year after the 2010 World Cup, but that was that for the then 31-year-old when it came to playing for his country.

    He does feel there is a big incentive just 12 months away for those who missed out this time, though.

    The ex-Spurs and West Ham forward said: “There’s a World Cup next year, another opportunity very, very close.

    “Maybe you take it as a positive. It drives you to improve and to be better, to make sure you’re in the next squad.”

    HARRY'S CRY – EXCLUSIVE

    Harry Maguire woke up every morning hoping his ankle pain had gone but still hopes to be fit for the Euros.

    Speaking yesterday, Maguire, 28, was asked about his first thoughts as he sat on the turf waiting for medical attention at Villa Park after Anwar El Ghazi crunched him.

    He said: “The fear that I had was missing everything. I knew it was quite a bad injury. When I got the results of the scan, I knew it would be unlikely I would made the Europa League final — but we also never ruled it out.

    “I would jump out of bed and put weight on my ankle, which I probably should not have done, and test it to see if the pain was still there. Every morning, I woke up wishing the pain would be gone.

    “Unfortunately, it was not to be. I knew for me to start the Europa League final was very unlikely but I hoped to play some part. However it was out of reach and just not possible. Ahead of the final, I could still not run on the ankle.

    “But it is now improving and getting better, so I am just looking forward to the Euros.”

    KEAN TO STAY

    Moise Kean wants to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.

    The French giants are preparing a five-year contract and a £34.5million offer to Everton, according to transfer guru Nicola Schira.

    Everton are said to want more than £40m for the Italian who has been on loan in Paris this season.

    KHAL FOR KANE

    Manchester City chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak has given Pep Guardiola the green light to go out and bid for Harry Kane.

    The Premier League champions said an emotional farewell to all-time leading goalscorer Sergio Aguero at the weekend. And their Abu Dhabi owners have vowed to land a top name who can fill the boots of the deadly Argentine forward.

    That will come as a blow to Tottenham’s hopes of holding onto England captain Kane – who has made it clear he wants out this summer. Khaldoon said: “We’re losing a very important legend in Sergio, they are very hard shoes to fill. I’m confident we will find the right player to fill those shoes.

    “There are other areas that need investment, not too many. but it’s not about numbers – it’s about quality. It’s a phenomenal squad – you don’t win the Premier League and get to the Champions League final without an incredible squad.

    “We have that but will bring quality into the squad in a couple of key positions.”

    City were previously linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku of Inter. But Kane’s wish to leave Spurs has put City on red alert and it now seems Pep will have the financial muscle for such a deal.

    LOK HIM IN

    Arsenal are tracking Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga, according to reports.

    A number of Premier League clubs are tracking the 21-year-old who is rated at £13.5million.

    Arsenal have been keen since 2019 and are considering moving again this summer, according to Nieuwsblad.

    Lokonga mainly plays as a defensive midfielder and could play alongside Thomas Partey.

    NO MAUR SPECULATION

    Maurcio Pochettino has not told Paris Saint-Germain or club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he wants to leave, according to reports.

    The Argentine has been linked with a move back to Tottenham but the French giants have had no such communication, according to the Telegraph.

    HA HA HARA

    Jamie O'Hara seemed somewhat unhappy with Gareth Southgate's confirmation that Jesse Lingard may play against Austria tomorrow.

    The former Tottenham man tweeted in a bluster before his TalkSPORT colleague Max Rushden attempted to calm him down with a fairly rational, logical and sensible reply.
