What the papers say

The Telegraph says Manchester United have no intention of selling forward Anthony Martial, despite the 25-year-old being linked with a move to Inter Milan. The Italian giants are in the market for a replacement for Chelsea-bound Romelu Lukaku, but Martial is believed to be part of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans for the upcoming season.

Manchester City are set to open contract talks with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Phil Foden, according to the Daily Mail. The paper says the club are looking to lock the duo down long-term in the wake of John Stones committing to a new four-year extension.

Price is proving to be a major sticking point in Lyon’s pursuit of Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri. The Liverpool Echo reports the Reds want at least £12million for the 29-year-old – much more than Lyon’s own valuation of the Swiss international.

Everton are gearing up to make a move for Antwerp defender Aurelio Buta, according to The Sun. Toffees scouts have reportedly been impressed with the 24-year-old, with the club preparing a £3m bid for his services.
