Man United, Liverpool chase Real Madrid

NEW DELHI: Manchester United and Liverpool have targeted Real Madrid midfielder Kovacic amid the player’s uncertain future at Bernabeu.

The Croatia international, who helped his side reach the World Cup final in Russia, is keen to quit the La Liga giants.

Kovacic has spent the majority of his Real Madrid career stuck behind the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro in the pecking order.

Spanish newspaper Marca claimed that Man United and Liverpool have both made promises to the 24-year-old, who has been offered a starring role.

Man U close on Sandro

Meanwhile, Man United are reportedly closing in on Juventus star Alex Sandro, who is ready to reject a move to PSG.

Journalist Claudia Garcia, speaking to Italian radio station Rai Sports said, “I see Alex Sandro closer to Manchester United. PSG have to sign a midfielder if Adrien Rabiot leaves, they are very interested in Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante.”

United want Sandro to replace Luke Shaw.

Gomes to quit Barca for Arsenal?

Arsenal have been tipped to lure Andre Gomes away from Barcelona this summer, with the player keen to leave the Spanish club.

The Portugal international landed as a replacement for Xavi Hernandez in 2016 but, after struggling under both Ernesto Valverde and Luis Enrique, a parting of the ways looks on the cards.

Arsenal want Gomes to add some solidity to their midfield despite having Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Mohamed Elneny and Aaron Ramsey.
