Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy could approve a world record £200million sale of Harry Kane to Manchester United in an attempt to balance the club’s books. Spurs, who still have £637m left to pay on loans they took out to fund their new stadium, are set to take another financial hit due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Man United have been long-term admirers of Kane, who is believed to be available for the right price. (FULL STORY)

West Ham midfielder Declan Rice has admitted he would love to partner up with childhood friend Mason Mount.

The pair played together in Chelsea’s youth teams, before Rice was released at the age of 14.

Chelsea have been linked with re-signing the England midfielder in a big-money deal. Mount has enjoyed a breakthrough season with the Blues, scoring six goals and registering four assists. (FULL STORY)

Man City are winning the race to sign Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.

The 22-year-old is also being chased by Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, City are ready to activate his £97.5m release clause this summer.

Martinez has scored 16 goals this season and is seen as a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero by City boss Pep Guardiola. (Sun)

West Ham and Crystal Palace are keen on signing former Sunderland striker Josh Maja.

The League One club’s promotion bid was derailed when Maja joined Bordeaux for £1.5m last January. But the 21-year-old has found his playing time limited in France, starting just nine league games in 15 months.

Crystal Palace and West Ham strikers have struggled for goals this season, and £10m-rated Maja could solve that problem. (Sun on Sunday)

Tanguy Ndombele is considering his Tottenham future following Jose Mourinho’s impromptu training session last week.

The France midfielder was seen training in a public park with Mourinho on Tuesday.

The Spurs boss later apologised for taking the training session, which went against the government’s lockdown guidelines.

Barcelona could launch a summer bid for Ndombele, who is the club’s record signing at £55m, if his relationship with Mourinho fails to improve. (FULL STORY)

James Rodriguez’s agent has held talks with Manchester United and Juventus over a summer move from Real Madrid.

The 28-year-old has started just four LaLiga games since returning from a two-year loan spell with Bayern Munich last year.

His contract runs out at the end of next season, so this year’s summer transfer window presents Real Madrid with a realistic chance of getting a fee for him. (AS)

Kylian Mbappe almost joined Real Madrid before the coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc across European football.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar has been heavily linked with a move to the Spanish giants for the past year. And former PSG winger Jerome Rothen claims the coronavirus outbreak, which has suspended leagues in Spain and Italy indefinitely, is delaying the transfer. (AS)

Liverpool are no longer looking to sign Jadon Sancho after being priced out of a deal.

The England winger is valued at £100m with Manchester United leading the race for his signature. The transfer is ‘not currently considered viable’ for the Premier League leaders.

Sancho has been in fine form for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga with 29 assists since the start of last season, making him one of the most sought-after players in Europe. (Football Insider)
