Euro Paper Talk: Mourinho to make personal check on ?80m Man Utd target in CL final; Dembele given Liverpool nudge

Jose Mourinho will be an interested spectator in Saturday’s Champions League final as he watches a Real Madrid target, while Ousmane Dembele has bee advised to strongly consider a big-money move to Liverpool, according to Thursday’s European papers.

 

MOURINHO TO RUN RULE OVER ISCO IN KIEV

Jose Mourinho is being tipped to be an interested spectator in Saturday’s Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid in Kiev as he personally runs the rule over a prospective big-money Manchester United summer signing.

The United boss is pondering major changes to his squad this summer and Real Madrid star Isco has been linked with a move.

Isco has confirmed to the Spanish media that he will assess his future once again in the summer after failing to establish himself as an out-and-out regular under Zinedine Zidane.

And that has predictably led to claims in Don Balon that a €80million move to Old Trafford is once again on the cards.

The Spanish publication believes Mourinho wants to build his side around the former Malaga man and will watch him on Saturday in Kiev ahead of a likely summer bid.

Isco has also been linked with a move to Manchester City this summer, but it’s believed United would hold the upper hand if Real gave any indication they will sell the talented playmaker.

COUTINHO ADVISES DEMBELE ON LIVERPOOL MOVE

Liverpool’s hopes of bringing Ousmane Dembele to Anfield this summer have been given a glowing endorsement from Philippe Coutinho, if reports in Spain are to believed.

The France winger could be allowed to move on this summer after struggling to make an impact following his €130m move to the Nou Camp from Borussia Dortmund last summer. The imminent arrival of €100m man Antoine Griezmann is likely to further restrict Dembele’s opportunities at the LaLiga champions and it’s believed they are actively looking to move the former Rennes star on.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will have vast sums to spend this summer if reports are to be believed and Don Balon claims former Reds favourite Coutinho has already held held informal talks with his Barcelona teammate over what life would be like at Anfield should he make a reported €100m switch.

And it’s claimed Coutinho has spoken warmly about life on Merseyside, telling the player he would be well advised to revive his career under the expert tutelage of Klopp.

Meanwhile, other reports in Spain suggest Dembele might not be the only Barcelona man heading to Anfield this summer.

Mundo Deportivo claims Ernesto Valverde has told Paco AlcacerAleix Vidal and Andre Gomes to all move on and it’s suggested Klopp may have an interest in €40m striker Alcacer.

Paper Talk: Spurs demand 75m for Man Utd target; Arsenal eye Nice raid

Tottenham have reportedly upped the price for Toby Alderweireld as Man Utd open talks for the defender, while Arsenal are looking to land a midfielder snubbed by France, according to Thursday’s papers.

 

SPURS UP ALDERWEIRELD PRICE AS MAN UTD OPEN TALKS

Tottenham have reportedly opened negotiations with Manchester United for Toby Alderweireld, but Spurs supremo Daniel Levy is playing hardball again.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the Belgian international and is looking to take advantage of the 28-year-old’s contract impasse with the north London outfit.

Alderweireld is out of contract in 2020 and has so far failed to reach an agreement over a new deal, leading to strong speculation that he will be sold for a fee in the region of £55million.

However, the Daily Mirror claims that Spurs now want £75m for the former Southampton star – a fee closer to the one which Liverpool paid to land Virgil van Dijk in January.

Alderweireld cost Tottenham just £11.5m when he arrived from Atletico Madrid in 2015 and formed an outstanding partnership with international team-mate Jan Vertonghen at the heart of Mauricio Pochettino’s defence.

However, injury and issues over his new contract have seen Alderweireld play second fiddle to the club’s record signing Davinson Sanchez this season, leading to talk that Spurs are prepared to let him leave.

The Belgian is expected to be one a of a number of Tottenham players to move on this summer, with the likes of Mousa Dembele, Danny Rose, Fernando Llorente and Moussa Sissoko also set to leave.

Club chief confirms Wayne Rooney set for talks over MLS move

Wayne Rooney will travel to the United States to meet officials at DC United this week, his spokesperson has confirmed.

Everton’s former England captain, who has one year left on his contract at Goodison Park, has been linked with a move to the Washington-based Major League Soccer club in recent weeks.

No deal has been made between Everton and United but Rooney, 32, is travelling to the United States for exploratory talks with the permission and in the full knowledge of the Merseysiders.

The trip is of a fact-finding nature to assess the opportunity that could exist should there be interest in a move.

Any transfer, however, would need to meet the approval of Everton. The final decision on any proposed deal would rest with the Premier League club.

Rooney is to be accompanied on his trip to Washington by his long-time adviser Paul Stretford.

News of the visit first emerged in a report in the Washington Post on Wednesday. A spokesperson for the player confirmed that it is to take place in the coming days.

Everton have not commented.

Rooney rejoined first club Everton last summer after 13 years with Manchester United. He scored 11 goals during the season just finished, including a hat-trick against West Ham in November.

Arsenal ahead of Chelsea, Newcastle in hunt for Vagnoman

Arsenal are favourites to land Hamburg defender Josha Vagnoman, according to a report.

ESPN claim the Gunners, Chelsea and Everton are keen on the 17-year-old full-back, who was the second youngest player in history to play in the Bundesliga, when he made his debut in March in the 6-0 defeat against Bayern Munich.

Vagnoman has played for Germany’s Under-17s and Under-18s and he was a key member of the Germany U17 side at the World Cup last year.

He can play in either full-back position and is under contract until 2019, but the club have offered him a new deal, which he has yet to sign.

 

The report claims Arsenal “believe they are well positioned” to sign Vagnoman with the Gunners’ German head of recruitment Sven Mislintat a big fan of Vanoman.

The Sun reported in February that Arsenal were tracking Josha Vagnoman  and claimed Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayern Munich had also shown an interest in the player.

The Hamburger Abendblatt last week  reported that Newcastle United had an offer turned down by Hamburg, and that the player was set to sign a three-year contract despite relegation from the Bundesliga.

“The key is that I feel comfortable with Hamburger SV. I feel good here and everything fits,” Vanoman told the German paper in February, before of course they were relegated.

Man Utd ranked as Europe?s most valuable club; six PL sides in top 10

Manchester United remain the most valuable club in Europe, according to the latest study of leading teams – but six Premier League sides comprise the top 10.

The report looked at the finances of 32 clubs based on their popularity on social media channels, aggregate operating revenues over three seasons, and success in European competitions.

The clubs were then ranked by ‘enterprise value’ – an accounting measure used to assess how much it would cost to buy any given club or company as it includes a business’ total debt, with professional services firm KPMG using its own formula to reach these valuations.

For the period covered by the KPMG study, as at January 1 2018, Manchester United came out on top of the most prominent European football clubs.

United’s enterprise value sees them again rank ahead of both Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, extending their lead with a year-on-year growth of five percent.

The Premier League club top the list at 3.255 billion euros (£2.92bn), with Real Madrid at 2.92bn euros (£2.62bn) edging out Barcelona at 2.783bn euros (£2.49bn).

Germany’s Bayern Munchen are fourth (2.552bn euros/£2.29bn), ahead of Manchester City (2.16bn euros/£1.93bn), the Ethiad Stadium club seeing a nine per cent increase in year-on-year growth for the period of the study.

The financial muscle of Premier League clubs – powered by lucrative broadcasting revenues, especially from overseas rights, and sponsorship deals – is shown with Arsenal (2.102bn euros/£1.88bn), Chelsea (1.765bn euros/£1.58bn), Liverpool (1.580bn euros/£1.415bn) and Tottenham all in the top 10.

Spurs showed 27 per cent growth, up to 1.3bn euros (£1.16bn), while Leicester, who won the Premier League title in 2015/2016, are listed in 15th place, with a 29 per cent increase at 596 million euros (£533m).

West Ham, recently moved into the London Stadium, are a new entry at number 16, on 531m euros (£475m) and Everton (512m euros/£458m) are 19th.

In a statement, KPMG’s global head of sports Andrea Sartori, the report’s author, said: “Despite this year’s (overall aggregate) growth being lower than last year’s 14 per cent growth, the football industry continues its rise.

“Overall growth is driven by different factors, one of these being the increase of operating revenues of the top 32, at eight per cent.

“Eye-catching transfer deals and spiralling staff costs have not prevented such clubs from registering a striking upward trend, as the profits before taxes increased by some 17 times in comparison to the previous year.”

Sartori added: “One of the reasons for this growth can be found in the significant influence exercised by English clubs, as well as the improved financial health of many mid-size clubs within the ranking, which also reflects compliance with the UEFA FFP (Financial Fair Play) Regulations.”

European club enterprise value ranking top 10:

1 Manchester United 3.255 billion euros (£2.92bn), 2 Real Madrid 2.92bn euros (£2.62bn), 3 Barcelona 2.783bn euros (£2.49bn), 4 Bayern Munich 2.552bn euros (£2.29bn), 5 Manchester City 2.16bn euros (£1.93bn), 6 Arsenal 2.102bn euros (£1.88bn), 7 Chelsea 1.765bn euros (£1.58bn), 8 Liverpool 1.580bn euros (£1.415bn). 9 Juventus 1.302bn euros (£1.158), 10 Tottenham 1.3bn euros (£1.16bn).
