SOCCER: Jadon Sancho could finally be on his way to Manchester United this summer after Borussia Dortmund slashed their asking price for the winger to £86.75million.
Sancho was United's top target last summer but they failed to reach an agreement with the England international's representatives or convince Dortmund to lower their asking price, thought to be north of £100million.
German newspaper Bild reports that while Dortmund do not want to lose Sancho, they would part with the England international should their valuation be met early enough in the window.
Having previously valued Sancho at £104million (€120m), financial losses incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic mean they would now be willing to sell for around £86.75million (€100m).
Chelsea and Liverpool are both 8/1, with a move to Manchester City considered a 14/1 shot.
Abramovich: Bring back Lukaku
SOCCER: Roman Abramovich has given Chelsea officials the green light to launch a bid for Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The former Blues striker made 15 appearances for the Blues in his previous three-year spell at Stamford Bridge, spending the majority of his time out on loan.
However, with their patience with £54million signing Timo Werner having run out, Chelsea are now looking to bring back Lukaku who has scored 61 goals in 92 games for the Serie A champions.
Inter's financial situation means they may be forced to sell, but they would be looking for around £104million for the Belgian according to a report.
A return to Chelsea is priced at 5/1 with Sky Bet. PSG (7/1) and Manchester City (8/1) are also thought to be in the running for the 27-year-old. A switch to another of his former clubs, Manchester United, is priced at 20/1.
New Tottenham boss will have Bale decision to make
Who that might be, though, is still far from certain.
Chairman Daniel Levy believes a second loan deal for Bale would make sense for both Spurs and Real Madrid. The Welshman is unlikely to play a prominent role for the La Liga side who would welcome the opportunity to offload part of his huge wages - Spurs are currently paying the midfielder £240,000 a week.
The prospect of Bale joining another Premier League club on loan and being a success is also a scenario Levy is keen to avoid
Whether Bale spends a second season at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would depend both on the player and the new boss, though according to the Daily Mail.
And, according to Paddy Power, the man most likely to fill that role is Fulham boss Scott Parker.
Julian Nagelsmann, Erik ten Hag and Maurizio Sarri have previously headed the betting before dropping out of contention.
Interim coach Ryan Mason is priced at 20/1.
