What the papers say

Anthony Martial‘s woes at Old Trafford could reportedly see him swap the North West for Spain. The Express cites Mundo Deportivo as saying Barcelona officials recently travelled to Manchester and queried the availability of the 25-year-old French forward, who has fallen out of favour at Manchester United

The Manchester Evening News claims the Red Devils are interested in Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri. Referring to a report in Spain’s Super Deporte, the paper says the 24-year-old striker may be available for United after he was beset with a string of injuries in LaLiga.

Ousmane Dembele could reportedly become a Magpie. The Frenchman, 24, is ready to quit Barcelona on a free transfer this summer and has been linked with a move to Newcastle, Arsenal and Manchester United, according to the Sun which refers to Spanish outlet Sport.
