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 â‚¬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 â‚¬130m move to the Nou Camp from Borussia Dortmund last summer. The imminent arrival of â‚¬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 â‚¬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 toldÂ Paco Alcacer,Â Aleix Vidal and Andre Gomes to all move on and it’s suggested Klopp may have an interest in â‚¬40m striker Alcacer.

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 ÂŁ55million.
However, the Daily Mirror claims that Spurs now want ÂŁ75m 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 ÂŁ11.5m 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.

Gianluigi Buffonâ€™s move to PSG could help Newcastle sign a â‚¬15m goalkeeper, according to a report.
French outlet L’EquipeÂ claim that Buffon’s impending move to the Ligue 1 champions could forceÂ Alphonse Areola out of the club.
They go on to state that a â‚¬15m move to Tyneside is on the cards for Areola, with Newcastle targeting a move for the 25-year-old Frenchman due to the uncertain situation surrounding on-loan stopper MartinÂ DĂşbravka.
Meanwhile, Spanish paper ASÂ claims that LaLiga duoÂ Athletic Bilbao and Real Betis have been quoted a price of â‚¬10m if they want to sign Mikel Merino from Newcastle this summer.
Merino joined Newcastle on loan from Borussia Dortmund last summer, and triggered a clause in the deal in October based on appearances, which meant the Magpies had to sign him permanently to a five-year deal.
Rafa Benitez could sell the Spaniard, who started the season well before struggling for game time following a back problem.

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, whoÂ 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 thatÂ Arsenal were tracking Josha VagnomanÂ and claimed Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayern Munich had also shown an interest in the player.
The Hamburger Abendblatt last weekÂ reported that Newcastle United had anÂ offer turned down by Hamburg, and that the player was set to sign a three-year contract despite relegation from the Bundesliga.
â€śThe key is that I feel comfortable with Hamburger SV.Â I feel good here and everything fits,” Vanoman told the German paper in February, before of course they were relegated.

Liverpool transfer targetÂ Jamaal Lascelles has given no indication he is ready to leave “massive” Newcastle United.
The England hopeful is on Jurgen Klopp’s wanted list, according to The Independent with Liverpool chasing a new centre-back.
Lascelles is one of two defensive targets on Klopp’s wanted list with Burnley’s James Tarkowski the other name in the frame as the Champions League finalists look for a long-term partner for Virgil van Dijk.
Toon skipper Lascelles though has not entertained the latest talk though, although it’s not clear just when the Newcastle Chronicle obtained the thoughts from the former Nottingham Forest man.
â€śThis is the happiest Iâ€™ve been,â€ť Lascelles told The Chronicle.Â â€śIâ€™m playing week in, week out. And Iâ€™m the captain here, the fans love me, and Iâ€™ve got a good relationship with them because I love them. And weâ€™re doing well, too.
â€śIâ€™m very happy here. You hear things, you hear rumours and stuff, but Iâ€™m a young player and I need to be playing football at a good club – and thatâ€™s what this is.
â€śOverall itâ€™s been an unreal season as far as Iâ€™m concerned, both for me personally, and more importantly for the club.â€ť
Lascelles was linked with a ÂŁ30million move to Chelsea in March by the Daily Mirror,Â while earlier this month the same tabloid claimed Everton were lining up a ÂŁ25million move for the player, who was also understood to have been watched by Tottenham.
The centre-back, who made 35 appearances this season, seems more than happy on Tyneside with The Chronicle detailing a “beaming smile” when asked about all the speculation.
â€śThis is the happiest Iâ€™ve been,â€ť Lascelles added.
â€śIâ€™m playing week in, week out. And Iâ€™m the captain here, the fans love me, and Iâ€™ve got a good relationship with them because I love them. And weâ€™re doing well, too.
â€śIâ€™m very happy here. You hear things, you hear rumours and stuff, but Iâ€™m a young player and I need to be playing football at a good club – and thatâ€™s what this is.
â€śOverall itâ€™s been an unreal season as far as Iâ€™m concerned, both for me personally, and more importantly for the club.
â€śThis is the right club for me at the right time We have a huge fanbase, an amazing manager, and this club is massive. It has so much history.
â€śAs captain, I want to see how far we can go – and potentially take it back to where it belongs.â€ť
