TOP STORY: PSG offer Verratti and cash for Pogba

Paul Pogba has been criticised for some of his performances for both Manchester United and France, but it seems Paris Saint-Germain have no doubts about him.

The Sun reports that United “have been offered Marco Verratti plus cash for Pogba,” but stresses that it is unclear whether they would let their record signing go.

French champions PSG “have chanced their arm” by asking about the potential availability of Pogba, who became United’s record signing when he returned from Juventus in 2016.

Staying with matters United, the Sun adds that they may have priced Tottenham out of a move for forward Anthony Martial.

It reports that Spurs “made initial contact but were not interested in doing business at the price quoted,” which some reports suggested could have been £75 million.

Chelsea won’t consider Loftus-Cheek sale

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will not be sold by Chelsea even if his value soars at the World Cup, the Telegraph reports.

Loftus-Cheek, who starred as he made his full World Cup debut in England’s 6-1 win over Panama, has said he does not want to return to Stamford Bridge to be on the bench.

And the Telegraph says that means Crystal Palace — for whom he played last season — Everton and West Ham could all try to bring him in on loan.

Chelsea “are determined that, no matter who is manager or who they sign, Loftus-Cheek will not be sold because they are confident he can be a major player for the club.”

The 22-year-old has three years left on his contract, but the Blues could try to offer him enhanced terms.

Arsenal still keen on Sevilla star

Sevilla may have said midfielder Ever Banega is not for sale, but the Independent reports that Arsenal’s interest is not over.

Gunners boss Unai Emery worked with the Argentina international in La Liga and “is well aware of the qualities and experience he could bring.”

The Independent says Banega “is considering his future after behind-the-scenes changes at Sevilla” and has a release clause of around £17.5m.

Could Arsenal trigger Ever Banega’s modest buyout clause?

Should Arsenal or another club succeed in persuading him to leave, Sevilla have lined up Swansea midfielder Roque Mesa as a replacement.

Meanwhile, the Mirror says Brighton centre-back Lewis Dunk, linked with a switch to the Emirates when Arsene Wenger was manager, “has been told Arsenal won’t be moving for him now [that] Unai Emery is in charge.”

Seagulls captain Dunk now looks set to stay at the Amex, even though other Premier League clubs are interested.


– West Bromwich Albion have turned down a £12m offer from West Ham for central defender Craig Dawson, the Telegraph says.

Dawson, reported to want to leave following West Brom’s relegation to the Championship, is a target for clubs including Burnley and the Baggies, who are “understood to rate the 28-year-old at more than £20m.”

– Plenty of players are being linked with Everton as manager Marco Silva gears up for a busy summer, and here’s another: Red Bull Salzburg attacking midfielder Hannes Wolf.

The Mirror reports that the 19-year-old is interesting the Merseysiders after scoring 12 goals for Salzburg last season.
