Manchester United will have to stump up a huge amount of cash to bring Paul Pogba back to the club.

The Daily Mirror reports that United might have to shell out a British record sum of £78m to sign the Juventus player.

He left Old Trafford four years ago for just £800,000.

The Guardian say that Manchester City are no longer in the race to sign the French international.

Liverpool are considering a move for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, according to the Daily Star.

A report that originated with Antena 3 Sports and has been repeated in the Metro suggests that Diego Costa wants to leave Chelsea to return to Atletico Madrid this summer.

The Sun reports that Stephan Lichtsteiner could be Chelsea’s first signing since Antonio Conte took over as boss.

And the Daily Mirror say that the Blues are after £31m-rated Marseille front man Michy Batshuayi.

Eric Bailly might not be the last defender making an arrival at Old Trafford this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News.

And Gazzetta dello Sport believe that the Red Devils will let Matteo Darmian leave, possibly to join Juventus.
