Lingard form alerts Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter

West Ham United loanee has become hot property, while Man Utd are set to try again with Sancho.

SOCCER: Jesse Lingard's remarkable renaissance at West Ham could earn the midfielder a move to Real Madrid, according to ESPN.

Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan and Real Madrid are among a host of clubs monitoring the attacker's situation ahead of the summer transfer window, sources have told ESPN.

No Premier League player has scored more than Lingard's eight league goals since he made his West Ham debut on February 3.

It has already won him a bet with Mark Noble and it might now earn him a move to the continent.

However, West Ham are still seen as the most likely destination for the Manchester United winger, with a summer move to the London Stadium priced at 5/2.

PSG are 9/1, with Inter 14/1 and Real Madrid 16/1.

Man Utd haven't given up on Sancho

SOCCER: Manchester United could revisit a move for Borussia Dortmund and England star Jadon Sancho this summer.

United first attempted to sign Sancho from Manchester City in 2017 and the 21-year-old was the club's priority target last year.

But according to the Manchester Evening News (MEN), the club stopped dialogue with Sancho's agent, Emeka Obasi, three weeks before the summer transfer window closed.

The MEN report sources as saying United balked at Sancho's salary demands last summer and the intermediary fee demanded by Marco Lichtsteiner, who acted on the behalf of Dortmund.

It meant the club never broached the subject of a potential transfer fee, with reports of a £108million evaluation well wide of the mark.

Sancho is contracted to Dortmund until 2023 but his resale value has fallen considerably due to a combination of the coronavirus pandemic, his form and his club's struggles in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted the club would be prepared to sell Sancho for an "exceptional offer" and according to the MEN, his words have encouraged United to go back in for the England international.

Despite his stock falling, Sancho has still tallied 12 goals and 16 assists for Dortmund this term.

A move to United is priced at 5/2 with Sky Bet, with Chelsea (6/1) and Arsenal (9/1) leading an all-Premier League market.

ECB believes outs are in when it comes to The Hundred

CRICKET: Wickets are out and outs are in when the Hundred launches in July.

Market research carried out by the ECB revealed one of the biggest barriers to new supporters is the complexity of cricket's terminology.

Therefore, In an effort to make the sport more accessible to new supporters, English cricket chiefs are ready to overhaul some of the game's historic terminology.

Telegraph Sport understands one of the biggest changes will be that wickets will be described as 'outs', while batsmen will be called batters in the men's form of the game.

A spokesperson for The Hundred said: "The Hundred is designed to make cricket accessible to everyone, and research shows that the language of the game can sometimes be a barrier. Along with our broadcast partners, we want the Hundred to open cricket up to more people, as well as entertaining existing fans."

The competition, which has already met with hostility from the majority of the sport's traditional core, opens with a women's match at the Oval on July 21.

Northern Superchargers, who have Ben Stokes and Aaron Finch among their ranks, are 5/1 favourites with betway to win the men's competition.

Birmingham Phoenix and Welsh Fire are 4/1 joint favourites for the women's event.
