What the papers say
Edinson Cavani has expressed a desire to leave Old Trafford for LaLiga next summer, according to the Times. The paper says the Uruguay striker wants to play for Barcelona before his career ends, with the Catalan side able to sign the 34-year-old on a free transfer when his contract with Manchester United ends.
Arsenal are reportedly planning to make a move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin at the end of the season. The England forward, who has been out injured for the last three months, is under contract at Everton until 2025. The Mirror says the Gunners are considering Calvert-Lewin, 24, as a potential replacement if Alexandre Lacazette leaves.
Both AC and Inter Milan are said to be interested in Manchester United’s Alex Telles. The 28-year-old full-back has struggled for game time recently, with just two appearances for the Red Devils in the current campaign. The Sun reports the Italian sides will try to sign him if the Brazil defender’s lack of time on the pitch continues.
The Telegraph reports Newcastle will target four England internationals in January. Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard, 28, and his fellow midfielders Harry Winks of Tottenham and Chelsea’s Ross Barkley, 27, are said to be being considered by the Magpies along with Atletico Madrid’s 31-year-old full-back Kieran Trippier.
