United are ready to splash the cash in the summer having been told they will have to pay ANTOINE GRIEZMANN £300,000 per week if they want to sign him from Atletico Madrid.

The France international has been a long-time target for Jose Mourinho, but will have to make him the Premier League's highest paid player if they want to bring him to Old Trafford.

CLAUDE PUEL could be about to lose his job as Southampton manager, reports the Daily Star.

The Frenchman has been involved with a number of training ground bust-ups with some of the Saints' top stars, who are unhappy with management style.

There could be further bad news for Southampton, as Chelsea are closing in on the signing VIRGIL VAN DIJK, according to The Sun.

The Premier League champions in wait will spend £50million on the defender, beating Arsenal to his signature.

The Daily Mirror are reporting that KYLE WALKER is keen on a move to Manchester City in the summer, with the right-back set to earn over £100,000 per week.
