Mohamed Salah request - Report

Mohamed Salah has submitted a transfer request.

That’s the audacious claim from Spanish newspaper AS, who report that Salah is unhappy at Anfield because of an issue with Jurgen Klopp.

It’s believed the club’s owners are now involved and have attempted to persuade the Egyptian superstar to change his mind.

Newspaper AS add Salah, 26, will be allowed to leave if he still feels the same way when the summer transfer window opens.

Clever business

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels Manchester United must conduct "clever business" in the summer following their humbling exit in the Champions League.

In a previous era United were able to attract the world's best talents but, despite their track record of spending big in recent years, that may no longer be the case.

"Yeah, that is the level we have to aspire to because that's the level we have been," Solskjaer told MUTV.

"We want to get there and we have to get there by hard work and attitude every single day, and of course some clever business we have to do and just keep on going."

Real Madrid will have to pay £130million to sign Liverpool star Sadio Mane.

However, Liverpool are ready to demand £130million for their star man.

El Confidencial add that Eden Hazard, Paul Pogba, Christian Eriksen and Mane are all being eyed by the Spanish giants.

Sarri happy to be sacked

Maurizio Sarri is ‘happy to lose his job’ at Chelsea, journalist Duncan Castles claims.

Castles said: “I have been informed by a couple of sources that Sarri is not against being sacked by Chelsea.

“He’s not enjoying his time in London, he’s not enjoying working at the club, he finds the distance between himself and the ownership immense and feels he has no proper say in the transfer market.

“If you look at it from Sarri’s perspective the ideal way to go back to Italy would be on the back of a large, significant payoff from Chelsea, which is not to say he’s going to deliberately underperform to the end of the season, I don’t think that’s the case at all. He’s a proud man, he wants to demonstrate that he can win silverware with the club.

“But what I’m told by more than one person is he will not resist if Chelsea decide to dismiss him and would quite happily accept his severance cheque and then take one of the bigger jobs in Serie A and return to his home country.”

Arsenal plan

Unai Emery is considering bringing Ismael Bennacer back to Arsenal.

French publication Le10 Sport claim Arsenal are thinking about triggering a buy-back clause in his contract.

Bennacer made one senior appearance for Arsenal - starting in a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in the Carabao Cup in 2015.

The central midfielder was sold to Empoli for £900k in August 2017.

Now, Le10 Sport claim Arsenal are considering re-signing the 21-year-old by activating a buy-back clause in his contract.

Chelsea exit

Chelsea ace Mateo Kovacic could join Zenit St Petersburg this summer.

The midfielder is on loan from Real Madrid this season, however, there is no option to buy in his contract.

And the Daily Mail say Kovacic’s agent held talks with Zenit this week over a possible move.

Kovacic has impressed at Chelsea this season, with Maurizio Sarri publicly revealing he hopes to keep the Croatia international at Stamford Bridge.

Man Utd want FOUR signings

Man Utd are ready to splash the cash this summer, with the Red Devils eyeing FOUR deals.

Express Sport understands United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is willing to back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the transfer market.

And according to Manchester Evening News, United are in for four players this summer.

They say the Red Devils want a full-back, a centre-half, a central midfielder and a striker.

Crystal Palace star Aaron Wan-Bissaka is named as a top target for United this summer.

Chelsea identify Hazard replacement

Chelsea want Nicolas Pepe to replace Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge this summer if the Belgium international joins Real Madrid.

The Mirror claim the Blues are keen on the Ivory Coast international - and they’ll table an offer if their transfer ban is lifted.

Lille are demanding around £70m for the 23-year-old, who has asked to leave the club.

Chelsea are resigned to losing Hazard this summer, with Real Madrid the favourites to sign the winger.
