What the papers say

Staying at St James’ Park where there are apparently plans to secure the services of midfielder Matteo Guendouzi. The 22-year-old is on loan from Arsenal to Marseille, who want to make him a permanent fixture. Newcastle, however, are trying to “meddle” as they attempt to bring the player back to the Premier League, according to the Mirror based on Foot Mercato’s reporting.

RB Salzburg’s Chukwubuike Adamu is attracting interest in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, according to the Mail. The paper says Southampton, Monaco and several Bundesliga clubs are monitoring the 20-year-old, who has contributed four goals and an assist through 19 appearances for his Austrian side this season.

The 36-year-old signed a two-year contract when he joined from Juventus in the summer and there have been claims he wants to move into coaching at United so he can oversee his son Cristiano Jr’s development as a contracted junior.
