TOP STORY: De Gea denies final United offer
The Spaniard is reportedly demanding £350,000 per week to continue playing for the Red Devils, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side aren’t willing to offer him that sum of money.
PSG, on the other hand, are less fussed. However, should the Ligue 1 champions choose to wait until the end of the 2019-20 season, De Gea’s contract at Old Trafford will expire and the French club could snap him up on a free transfer.
A summer of significant overhaul is expected at Manchester United, with plenty of outgoings and incomings a result of the club failing to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
08.49 BST: Gazzetta dello Sport report that Juventus want to exchange Miralem Pjanic for Marquinhos.
Clearly Juve have some defensive rebuilding to do, but Pjanic would be a massive loss and we’re not sure this deal suits either team. Thomas Tuchel spoke of PSG’s need for defensive players, so if he loses another one then expect fireworks.
08.00 BST: It’s not just among the playing staff at Manchester United where big changes are expected this summer — The Sun reports that the club are keen to set up a three-man transfer committee comprising former stars.
The paper reports that ex-Old Trafford midfielder Darren Fletcher and defender Rio Ferdinand, who have both been named as candidates in the club’s search for a sporting director, are the chief names on the list along with United academy boss Nicky Butt.
One change that has already been made at United’s Carrington training ground has seen reverse team coach Ricky Sbragia leave the club.

Atletico join Trippier tug-of-war
It had previously been reported that Napoli were front runners in the deal, however with 34-year old full-back Juanfran departing Atletico, the Spanish side are also in need of reinforcements.
Wherever he ends up, Trippier’s future won’t be sorted out until after his side have played Liverpool in the small matter of the Champions League final on June 1.
Conte the key for Inter-Lukaku deal
The pair have never worked with one another, although Conte did try to sign Lukaku when he was in charge of Chelsea back in 2017. Now, it looks as though their fates could be intertwined, although Juventus and AC Milan are also thought to be keen on bringing the Belgian to Serie A.
It’s a league he has spoken highly of in the past, saying: “Serie A is a dream, it would really be a dream. I hope I can play there at some point.”
It’s thought that United won’t turn down an offer of £75m for Lukaku.
– Moussa Marega is on the radar of Wolves, as Nuno Espirito Santo plots a £30m move for the Mali international, the Mirror reports. Marega has scored 21 goals for Porto this season, and while Wolves didn’t struggle to find the net in 2018-19, they will have the added pressure of Europa League fixtures to contend with next season.
– West Ham striker Lucas Perez, on loan from Arsenal, is being lined up for a £2m transfer to Alaves, according to the Sun. Perez had just six goals to his name across 19 appearances during the 2018-19 season for the Hammers.
