Real Madrid are weighing up a summer move for Manchester City striker Erling Haaland, according to the Independent. Bosses at the Spanish giants reportedly feel like they are in the driver’s seat to bring in the 22-year-old following a series of meetings with his team. Haaland is considered to be an ideal replacement for Karim Benzema.

What the papers say

Paris St Germain are reportedly planning a shock offer for Manchester United defender Harry Maguire. The Sun says the 30-year-old is a major target for the French club, with PSG set to table a deal worth £50million.

Staying with United, the Guardian says the Red Devils are keeping a close eye on Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount. However, any potential move for the 24-year-old depends on whether or not the club commits to bringing in Tottenham striker Harry Kane, in which case Mount could be a cheaper alternative to fellow England midfielder Jude Bellingham.

And the Independent reports Brentford boss Thomas Frank is on a shortlist to replace Antonio Conte at Tottenham.
