All the top transfer-related stories in Sunday’s newspapers and online…


Manchester United face competition from Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid for Portugal international Renato Sanches. Benfica rejected an offer from United worth an initial £35m earlier this year, asking the Premier League club to pay a Portuguese record fee of €60m (£46.8m). While Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira has subsequently reduced the Portuguese champions’ demands to £39m plus a performance-related bonus, United’s hesitance in matching those terms has allowed other cash-rich clubs into the market.

The Red Devils ‘ manager Louis van Gaal has sanctioned the summer departure of his 22-year-old countryman, having run out of patience with the winger bought from PSV Eindhoven last July.

Liverpool could reignite their interest in Depay having tried to swoop 12 months ago. The Anfield transfer committee were desperate to sign Depay before he snubbed them to move to Old Trafford. Now they have the chance to move again and they could give the wing wizard a second chance in the Premier League.
