With Paul Pogba seemingly open to leaving Manchester United this summer, the club have set their asking price at £138 million, according to the Daily Star. Having seen his game turnaround under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, former club Juventus and Paris St Germain are said to have been keeping tabs on the France international.

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner could be up for grabs in the transfer window, the Mirror says. With one year left on his contract, Liverpool are reportedly considering making a swoop for the 23-year-old. But the Premier League runners-up could face competition from Bayern Munich, PSG and Borussia Dortmund.
