The season is over so bring on the transfer gossip and Liverpool have already been turned down by a midfielder.
TOTTENHAM WANT THEIR OWN PERSONAL JESUS
‘Tottenham are set to vie with Arsenal for Gabriel Jesus after beating their rivals for a Champions League spot next season,’ an exclusive claim to the Daily Telegraph. It just makes sense, with Jesus being able to play alone up front, partnering with Harry Kane or as a wide striker. There are also said to be six other clubs interested in the Brazilian.
His agent has already held talks with Arsenal and is said to be interested in the ‘project’ under Mikel Arteta, who he worked with at Manchester City. But Tottenham are able to deliver Champions League football, that’s huge; Antonio Conte appears to be about to receive substantial funds to purchase a futures contract as well as a central defender and a midfielder.
MAN UNITED TO LOSE £80M PAIR
It’s no surprise, but one of Erik Ten Hag’s first directives as Manchester United manager is that neither Eric Bailly nor Aaron Wan-Bissaka are part of his plans. Which may or may not be related to the story that the identity of the ‘toxic’ teammate who attacked Harry Maguire was identified.
Manchester United have not changed their plans on Eric Bailly and Aaron Wan-Bissaka: both are on the list to leave the club this summer. Edinson Cavani will also leave, as a free agent. 🔴❌ #MUFC
Wan-Bissaka’s future will depend on the proposals, Man United is there.

The idea of Manchester United being ‘on it’ is funny, mind. They haven’t been there for about nine years.
Finding a buyer for Wan-Bissaka could be a challenge and they certainly won’t get their £50m back; smart money is lent to Rome.
MONACO MAN GOES FOR THE REAL
On Sunday, reports from France indicated that Monaco midfielder Aurélien Tchouameni had agreed with Real Madrid and Liverpool and now had to choose between the two Champions League finalists, but that already seems outdated. because the French international would have made his decision.
The Liverpool Echo said that “club sources insist the Reds have been told by the player’s representatives that he will join the La Liga champions later this summer”. It totally makes sense as Real have an aging midfield and they’re much more likely to get games there. Besides, it’s Real Madrid.
