Manchester United still focused on Antoine Griezmann, City keen on Alexis

Wider Premier League targets include Sergio Aguero who is now 12/1 to move to Real Madrid in the summer, following falling behind Gabriel Jesus in the Manchester City pecking order.

- Reports on Wednesday suggested Manchester United were preparing for the sale of David De Gea.

Having let the 2016 transfer window pass without attempting to sign De Gea, Real now look ready to move for the 26-year-old - but will be told to cough up £66m to make him the world's most expensive goalkeeper.

A new top class forward looks to be on the agenda as Wayne Rooney is expected to leave Old Trafford after falling out-of-favour while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is yet to sign an extension to his contract which expires in June.

As such, United have started to look at potential replacements, with Inter's Handanovic now the leading candidate.

According to the Independent, Mourinho will either opt for experience and reliability in Internazionale's Samir Handanovic, or go balls out in an attempt to prize Milan wonderkid Gianluigi Donnarumma from the San Siro.


According to the Mail, there is no £52m release clause in De Gea's contract, contrary to reports in his native Spain.

"It's hard for him [De Gea] to one day be at one place, and then to be at another the next", Herrera said.

ESPN FC reported on Thursday that Conte is wanted by Inter Milan and it is said that any hope of keeping him happy at Stamford Bridge hinges on Chelsea keeping their best players, Hazard among them.

Jose Mourinho's side face Anderlecht in the quarter-finals, while Celta Vigo, Genk, Ajax, Schalke, Lyon and Besiktas are also still in the competition.

"It is a great chance for them", Scholes said.

"I think Lyon are maybe the obvious contenders to United".
