Manchester City have emerged as the favourites to land an Arsenal forward, while Real Madrid are confident of sealing a deal for a Chelsea playmaker, according to Tuesday’s papers.
Chelsea Braced For 'Body Blow' Of Double Departure
They may be clear at the top of the Premier League but not everything in Chelsea's garden is rosy, according to the Sun.
It reports that the Blues "are facing a body blow, with both Eden Hazard and Diego Costa set to leave this summer."
Hazard has been strongly linked with Real Madrid, and the Sun says they "appear increasingly confident of signing the playmaker for a world-record £100 million" with his Chelsea teammates "concerned this will be his final season in the Premier League."
The Mirror echoes that analysis, reporting that Bernabeu chiefs "feel they are getting encouraging signs that the Belgium international will be ready to leave at the end of the season if the Blues clinch the Premier League title."
Costa, the Sun adds, is also likely to be on the move after having said he is happy at Chelsea but is "not saying I'm happy with my life in London, because that is something totally different."
Chelsea could be set to lose both Diego Costa and Eden Hazard in the summer, according to reports.
At the heart of that, apparently, is the often gloomy weather, with the Sun quoting a source as saying: "Even though it has been nice for the past few days, sometimes you can go for more than a week without seeing the sun shine. It affects him."
Man United Ready To Consider Januzaj Bids
It doesn't seem long ago that Adnan Januzaj was seen as the next big thing at Manchester United. Now they are ready to listen to offers for him, according to the Telegraph.
Januzaj has been on loan at Sunderland, linking up with former United manager David Moyes, but has failed to impress with the Black Cats adrift at the foot of the Premier League. United are "prepared to offload him so long as an acceptable offer is forthcoming."
The Telegraph reports that a switch to either France or Italy appears the most likely, with Paris Saint-Germain, Marseille, Lyon, Monaco, Juventus, AC Milan, Inter, Roma and Napoli the interested parties.
Although there could yet be bids from the Premier League, Januzaj "is thought to favour a move overseas."
After multiple unsuccessful loans, Adnan Januzaj's future may lie away from Manchester United.
The winger, 22, signed a new five-year contract in 2013 but seems almost certain to go as part of a summer of change in which manager Jose Mourinho aims to add a striker, a midfielder, a left-back and a centre-back.
Januzaj could be one of several players heading out, with Wayne Rooney, Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young, Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw among others tipped to make exits.
Man City New Favourites To Land Arsenal Star
Manchester City have taken a surprise lead in the race to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
Sanchez is out of contract next summer and would be available for a cut-price £50million, with City ready to pay up to land the Chile star.
The Sun claims that a switch to The Etihad would come as a bit of a surprise, however, with Sanchez previously stating that he would prefer to stay in London.
If that were to be the case then Chelsea would be the only club in the capital with the funds to snap up the 28-year-old.
One thing is for sure, it looks as if Sanchez has had enough of Arsenal.
