    EDEN HOME

    Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are the leading contenders to sign Real Madrid star Eden Hazard.

    That's according to bookmakers Betfair, who've installed the European heavyweights as favourites to clinch his signature this summer.

    Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in June 2019 in a mega-money deal worth upwards of £130million.

    However, things haven't exactly gone to plan with injuries limiting the 30-year-old to just 34 appearances in all competitions.

    The Belgian international managed 10 starts as Real Madrid ended the season without a single trophy and losing their La Liga crown to rivals Atletico Madrid.

    The attacker also received scorn from supporters for laughing and joking with his former Chelsea colleagues after his old side had dumped them out of the Champions League.

    As a result, reports claim Real will look to offload Hazard in order to finance a major rebuild at the Bernabeu.

    MAN UTD EUROPEAN FINALS XI

    Manchester United take on Villarreal in the Europa League final on Wednesday night aiming to win their second title in the second tier of European football.

    Luke Shaw will incredibly play in his first-ever cup final after missing the 2017 Europa League final win over Ajax through injury.

    But he will almost certainly start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the 2020-21 squad aim to write their names in the record books.

    Ahead of the game, we've taken a look at the Man Utd's best XI based on cup finals.

    ED OF THE GAME

    Southampton are reportedly plotting a swap deal to sign Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard with Mohammed Elyounoussi heading the other way.

    The Hoops’ French striker has scored 83 goals in 168 appearances and attracted plenty of interest from south of the border and abroad.

    Both Arsenal and Leicester City have both been linked with a swoop for the 23-year-old.

    As Sun Sport exclusively revealed earlier this month, Southampton have now joined the race to sign the former Paris Saint-Germain star.

    Now a fresh report from Football Fan Cast has stated the Saints ‘can offer Celtic something which other Premier League clubs can’t’ in Elyounoussi.

    Edouard is valued at around £13.5m with Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl previously suggesting he would target players under the £10m price bracket.

    AOU ABOUT THAT

    Arsenal have been given a major boost in their quest to sign Houssem Aouar with the Lyon midfielder reportedly available for £25million.

    The Gunners were heavily linked with a move to sign the 22-year-old last summer, but were priced out of a deal to bring the Frenchman to the Emirates.

    It was claimed that the playmaker agreed to link up with the North Londoners who failed to stump up the £54m needed to secure his services.

    According to L'Equipe, Aouar's price tag this summer is over half of what Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas was previously demanding.

    They state that an offer between £22m-£25m could be enough to prise the player away from the Groupama Stadium.

    That is because Lyon failed to qualify for the Champions League after William Saliba – on loan at Nice from the Gunners – scored the winner in Sunday's 3-2 victory.

    And Arsenal could reignite their interest in Aouar with boss Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu known to be huge admirers of him.

    NO WAY, JOSE

    Eden Hazard is reportedly being eyed up by Jose Mourinho who is looking to make him his first Roma signing.

    The 30-year-old is one of a number of players that has been put up for sale by Real Madrid following another underwhelming season in Spain.

    And it has even been claimed that the Belgium international is looking to leave LaLiga in the summer having failed to prove his worth.

    A move back to Chelsea is believed to be his priority, but Leggo via Mundo Deportivo have stated that Mourinho is lining up an audacious swoop for the winger.

    The Italian news outlet has declared that the Special One is plotting a reunion with Hazard having managed him at Stamford Bridge for two years.

    Mourinho is likely to be given funds by the Giallorossi when he takes charge next season in his first year back in Italy since 2010.

    A £43million offer could be enough to tempt Los Blancos into accepting with Hazard failing to live up to his £130m price tag.

    BACK ON TORR?

    Fernando Torres has dropped a major hint that he is considering a sensational return to football.

    The former Chelsea and Liverpool striker hung up his boots in August 2019 after a stint with Japanese side Sagan Tosu.

    El Nino would then take up a coaching role with Atletico's B team of last year before becoming their manager in January – a position he has temporarily stepped away from due to personal reasons.

    Away from football, the 37-year-old went viral last year after piling on the muscle in a dramatic body transformation.

    Now Torres could be putting his new-found figure to good use back on the football pitch judging by his latest social media post.

    Posting an image of the iconic No9 shirt, he wrote the caption: "I only understand life in one way – playing. That's why I've decided to return."

    Fans will need to wait for more information with Torres adding: "This Friday I will communicate where."

    EUR IN TROUBLE

    UEFA have opened the way to ban Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus from the Champions League after beginning formal disciplinary charges against the rebel trio.

    Euro chiefs are determined to bring the three Super League ringleaders to heel after the collapse of their breakaway plan.

    Unlike the Prem Big Six, the two Milan sides and Atletico Madrid, the three clubs have refused to pull the plug on their scheme.

    That has infuriated Uefa President Aleksander Ceferin.

    He is out for revenge and wants to impose two season bans.

    And now that prospect had moved a step closer after Uefa announced its first move.

    In a statement, Nyon officials said: "Following an investigation conducted by UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors in connection with the so-called ‘Super League’ project, disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Real Madrid CF, FC Barcelona and Juventus FC for a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework.

    "Further information will be made available in due course."

    CONT TO GO

    Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is reportedly set to depart the San Siro within the next 48 hours following a huge row with the club's president Steven Zhang.

    The 51-year-old's possible shock departure comes after he guided the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title since 2010 after finishing 12 points clear.

    The ex-Chelsea gaffer hinted earlier this month he is unsure of what the future holds, despite having a year left on his contract.

    Inter are known to be in serious financial trouble, with La Gazzetta dello Sport claiming their Chinese owners Suning and Zhang are demanding the club to raise money.

    It has been stated that as well as Inter needing to cut the wage bill by 20 per cent, they need to raise a whopping £86.5million in player sales.

    Former Juve manager Conte – who has recently been involved in a training ground boxing bout with Romelu Lukaku – is said to have been furious after being informed of the decision.

    He is claimed to have expressed bitterness towards Inter's new direction in the meeting and is now seeking to quit the club.

    DRIVES YOU MADD

    Brendan Rodgers claims James Maddison's injury-plagued season cost him his place in England's Euro's squad.

    The Leicester boss said: "James has been unfortunate the way the season has panned out.

    "He didn’t start the season and it was difficult for him but then he got a run of games and was exceptional.

    “He was creating and scoring goals. It was looking very good for him. Then, he’s picked up the injury and he hasn’t got back to the level of fitness he needs."

    "When you are a very gifted technical player – as he is – you have to be able to move to be able to get on the ball.

    “Then, when you have the ball, you need the fitness to produce at such a high technical level. That’s something, unfortunately, that's just not quite been there.”

    CALL TO ARMS

    Chelsea are considering flogging winger Callum Hudson-Odoi to Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reports.

    The German giants are eyeing a replacement for Jadon Sancho if the England winger heads to Manchester United.

    Hudson-Odoi, 20, has been limited to just 10 Premier League starts this season having failed to force his way into Thomas Tuchel's first-team plans.

    The England international was heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich a year ago.

    But Chelsea convinced him to commit his future to Stamford Bridge having penned a £120,000-a-week contract until 2024.

    However, Hudson-Odoi has failed to fulfill his potential and Tuchel would be open to letting him leave either permanently or on loan if he can land a replacement.

    According to Eurosport, Dortmund are ready to make their move if United pursue Sancho.

    RENNES FOR THE HILLS

    Arsenal target Eduardo Camavinga has handed in a transfer request but the teenage sensation has his heart set on Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.

    The Rennes midfielder, 18, is one of Europe's hottest properties following yet another brilliant season.

    PSG are one of the clubs monitoring his situation closely and believe he is the future in their midfield.

    And it appears his head has been turned after telling Rennes he won't be signing a new contract.

    Camavinga has just a year left on his current deal meaning the club will be forced to flog him this summer or lose him for nothing.

    According to RMC Sport, Rennes are prepared to play hardball having slapped a £100million price-tag on their star man.

    With the current financial crisis in football due to the coronavirus pandemic, Rennes risk pricing out Europe's biggest clubs for his signature.

    The report adds how club owner Francois Pinault is hoping to spark a bidding war with Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid also all interested.

    MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Gareth Southgate announced his provisional 33-man England squad yesterday, with four uncapped players getting the nod.

    Ben Godfrey, Ben White, Aaron Ramsdale and Sam Johnstone all made the cut, although there were some tricky omissions for Southgate to make.

    Hopefuls Patrick Bamford, Danny Ings, James Maddison and Eric Dier all missed out, with the Three Lions boss admitting that it was ‘difficult’ not to pick the latter.

    He said: “He is a man who I have tremendous respect for and he has been, as you’ve rightly identified, a key player in some of our biggest nights, some of our biggest moments.

    “Unfortunately I just don’t think his season has been strong enough to be in the squad.”

    There was room for some exciting young talent, however, with Mason Greenwood, Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden among a number of players that could be heading to their first tournament.

    Southgate, 50, is expected to announce his 26-man squad for the finals next week.

    In club football news, Harry Maguire looks likely to miss out on featuring in the Europa League final for Manchester United this evening.

    Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to rule his skipper out of contention when quizzed, but Maguire didn’t take part in training last night with his team-mates.

    He HAS, however, been included in Southgate’s squad.

    Meanwhile, Uefa have begun the process that could eventually lead to Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus being banned from European competitions, after their involvements in the failed European Super League breakaway.

    WAGS WARNED

    By Duncan Wright

    England's Wags and families will be banned from seeing the England players in the team hotel for the duration of the Euros.

    Gareth Southgate has revealed Uefa protocols around Covid-19 make it impossible for his stars to catch up with loved ones at St George’s Park.

    He said: “We're not going to be able to let people in.

    “There's a clear edict from Uefa on what the bubbles need to look like to be as secure as we can make them.

    "It's never going to be 100 per cent failsafe but we've got to comply with as much as we can.

    “We're hoping that we might at some point be able to let the players have a little bit of time at home.

    "But that's constantly being assessed. It'd be a preference for us if we can.

    “But of course, we've got to monitor not only our own situations, but where we are as a country, what are the variants, what the government guidelines are.

    “That’s we hope to do that and we're working towards that, but it is going to be limited access which we have to accept is going to be harder for some players to cope with than for others.

    “You know everybody's going to react to that and respond to that differently.”

    LILLE BIT STRANGE

    Lille head coach Christophe Galtier has left the Ligue 1 club… just days after guiding them to the title.

    Speaking to L'Equipe, he revealed that he had 'done his time here'.

    He said: "I made my decision. I informed my president, Olivier Letang, after having listened to him a lot this morning, that I was going to leave LOSC. Or that I was stopping with LOSC, I do not know quite what term to use.

    "I just feel strongly that I have done my time here. That four-year cycle is long enough for a coach. So yes, it's only been five months that I collaborate every day with Olivier Letang and five months is not a lot for a collaboration.

    "Having spent four years here, I feel inside that it's time to leave this beautiful club, this magnificent club."

    MARC'D MAN

    Tottenham are in line for a huge cash windfall as Sporting Lisbon reportedly eye a bid for Marcus Edwards.

    The former Spurs winger, 22, swapped London for Portuguese outfit Vitoria in 2019.

    But A Bola claims Edwards is now being lined up by new Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon.

    Their interest in Edwards is great news for Tottenham, who could now cash in.

    It’s believed the deal taking Edwards to Vitoria nearly two years ago included a clause giving Spurs 50 per cent of his next transfer fee.

    Edwards, who has a release clause of £41million, is said to be valued at around £11.5m.

    And should he go for that figure, Spurs would cash in to the sum of just under £6m.

    But Daniel Farke faces a huge battle keeping hold of his star man this summer.

    Arsenal were linked with him last year and look set to revive their interest.

    According to The Telegraph, the Gunners may be forced to act quickly if they want to secure the Argentine.

    It is thought Aston Villa are prioritising a new No10 and preparing a bid.

    SHAW THING

    Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw has revealed what winning the Europa League tomorrow night would mean to him.

    The full-back, 25, missed the triumphant final in 2017 because of injury.

    And ahead of tomorrow's clash with Villarreal in Gdansk, he said: "I was a bit unfortunate last time, I wasn't there.

    "This season, especially now there's, personally in my opinion, much more confidence and belief in the squad that we're improving as a team.

    "This is the next step [on Wednesday night] to go out and show that we're going in the right direction. There's a lot of confidence and belief that we're taking the right steps and this is another step in the right direction.

    "A [winners] medal would mean a great deal. It’s something that when you come to Manchester United you look to win trophies. We’ve missed out on a few trophies in the last few years and I know how disappointed the lads have been. So there is a massive incentive to go out there and obviously enjoy it, but leave everything out on the pitch to win it.

    "I look around and everyone seems very relaxed, enjoying the moment being here in the final. We have not been in one for a while. I think most of the lads are just looking forward to getting out there.

    "There is no need for nerves, we’re here for a reason, I think we deserve to be here. And on Wednesday night we just need to go out there and do what we’ve done to get here, and hopefully we can come back with the trophy.

    "The last couple of days after the great win against Wolves we have studied Villarreal, but we need to focus on us and all the players will give everything to win this trophy and try to finish the season in a good way."

    The French forward, 23, is also being chased by Leicester and Arsenal.

    But the Seagulls hope their promise of a regular starting berth could convince Edouard to head to the South Coast.

    Former Paris Saint-Germain kid Edouard may find it difficult to dislodge first-choice Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho should he go to the FA Cup-winning Foxes.

    Meanwhile, Arsenal’s interest is understood to be dependent on whether Alexandre Lacazette stays or goes this summer.

    AS LUK WOULD HAVE IT

    Luka Modric has signed a one-year contract extension at Real Madrid, keeping him at the club until 2022.

    The Croatian's previous deal had been set to expire at the end of June.

    But the former Spurs midfielder, 35, is loving life at Real Madrid as much as ever.

    Modric celebrated his extension by posing in front of a collection of Madrid's European Cups, while holding aloft a shirt with 'Modric 2022' on the back.
