The Mirror, meanwhile, is at odds with the News of the World on the future of Arsenal's Nwankwo Kanu. While the former predicts that the Highbury club face a battle to keep their Nigerian striker, who reportedly misses Italy, the latter reckons he is about to sign a new contract with Arsenal worth pounds 1m a year.
The two papers also differ on the pay packet Real Madrid might offer Manchester United's Roy Keane. The Mail on Sunday insist that the Irishman is to quit Old Trafford after rejecting a proposed pounds 35,000-a-week contract. The News of the World says Real are prepared to pay pounds 100,000-a-week to beat off Barcelona; the Mirror puts Real's terms at pounds 70,000-a-week.
Elsewhere, the People says Liverpool are pressing Leicester to part with their England striker Emile Heskey.
