Chelsea have identified Borussia Dortmund teenager Christian Pulisic as a summer target, but face competition from Bayern Munich, reports the Daily Mail.

Dortmund are reluctatnt to sell the 19-year-old, but the winger could spark a bidding war this summer among several of Europe’s biggest sides. 

Bayern want Pulisic to help replace the aging Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, while Chelsea are looking for cover in case Willian and/or Eden Hazard leave the club.

David de Gea Manchester United

Not only is Toni Kroos reportedly Jose Mourinho’s top midfield target, but he also holds the key to David de Gea securing his move to Real Madrid, claims Don Balon.

Madrid are in the market for a new goalkeeper in the summer and Manchester United No.1 De Gea has long been linked with a transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu.

But, with United reluctant to sell, De Gea has reportedly told Madrid president Florentino Perez that letting Kroos move to Old Trafford will persuade the Spanish keeper’s current club to do business.

The Netherlands international has already confirmed his intent to leave Lazio this summer when his contract expires, and has drawn interest from several Premier League sides.

Liverpool have expressed an interest in signing Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas, claims Diario Gol.

The report states that the Costa Rican has never been a favourite of Madrid president Florentino Perez, with the Blancos hoping to sign David de Gea or Thibaut Courtois this summer.

Diawara’s agent has recently claimed that there is Premier League interest in the 20-year-old, with Everton previously having been linked with a bid.

‘Alexis moved to play Champions League’


Alexis Sanchez Manchester United

Alexis Sanchez’s frustration at Arsenal’s failure to qualify for the Champions League last season was central to his decision to join Manchester United, says Jose Mourinho.

Chile forward Sanchez completed his move to Old Trafford last month in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan join the Gunners.

Mourinho described the former Barcelona star as a player United “needed” and believes the 29-year-old’s desire to play in Europe’s premier competition was the motivating fact for his move.
