    I’LL ED FOR SPAIN

    Eduardo Camavinga is set to snub Premier League interest in favour of LaLiga, according to reports.

    The Rennes wonderkid has drawn admiration from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

    But according to The Telegraph, Camavinga has his ‘heart set’ on a move to Spain.

    Neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona are well placed to make a bid for the 18-year-old, given their financial woes.

    But both are expected to be better placed next summer – when Camavinga’s contract at Rennes expires.

    Man Utd and the Gunners have been asked to be kept in the loop regarding the midfielder’s transfer status this summer.

    PREM GIANTS ON RED ALERT FOR LEWANDOWSKI

    Bayern Munich legend Robert Lewandowski has clubs ‘putting out feelers’ over a transfer.

    That’s according to the Poland striker’s new boss Julian Nagelsmann, who is unhappy Lewandowski’s future remains uncertain.

    The 32-year-old is reportedly considering his options after seven trophy-laden seasons with Bayern.

    Chelsea are thought to be interested, despite making £150million-rated Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland their No1 target.

    And Lewandowski has also been linked with Manchester City as an alternative to Tottenham star Harry Kane.

    Lewandowski’s Allianz Arena contract runs until 2023. And club chiefs are hopeful he will stay despite seeing head coach Hansi Flick leave.

    However, new gaffer Nagelsmann has revealed that Lewandowski is yet to fully commit himself due to interest from other teams.

    The former RB Leipzig boss said: “I think it’s normal for someone who scores so many goals that almost every club puts out a feeler.

    “I’ve already spoken to him and texted him. I’m not very fond of the first official act with a player being to immediately discuss his contractual situation.”

    ARRESTED DAD BEGS RASHFORD TO FORGIVE HIM

    A dad arrested over a racist post to Marcus Rashford has admitted he may have sent it while drunk.

    Nick Scott, 50, originally denied sending the vile message after the Three Lions striker missed a penalty in Sunday's heartbreaking final.

    But he has now admitted he may have “unknowingly” sent the offensive remarks while drunk.

    Scott also begged for the Utd striker's forgiveness and revealed he benefited from the star’s free meals campaign.

    The football coach told The Sun: “I was hammered at the time and don't remember doing it.

    "But if I did I want Marcus to know that I'm truly sorry and I apologise sincerely.

    “After everything he’s done for my kids and all the other kids in the country with the free school meals.

    "He’s absolutely brilliant. He’s helped my family and I can’t thank him enough.”

    PAUL PSGBA?

    Manchester United's France midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly ‘thrilled’ at the prospect of joining Paris Saint-Germain.

    The 28-year-old's Old Trafford deal runs until next summer.

    United are understood to be keen to tie him down to a new contract, but it remains to be seen whether Pogba will commit his long-term future to the Red Devils.

    PSG are believed to be keeping tabs on his situation, with a move to the Ligue 1 giants exciting the World Cup winner.

    According to RMC Sport journalist, Loic Tanzi, the ex-Juventus man favours a switch to Les Parisiens.

    Replying to a fan for news on Pogba, he tweeted: “The player is thrilled by the idea of coming to PSG but will never go to clash with Manchester United.”

    SANCHO CAN WARK TALL WITH NEW HONOUR

    England wideman Jadon Sancho is set to be given the freedom of his London borough – just days after teammate Bukayo Saka was recommended for the same honour.

    The south London-born superstar, 21, received vile racist abuse after seeing his penalty saved in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final shootout against Italy – as did Saka.

    After helping the Three Lions to a first major final in 55 years, Southwark Council will award him freedom of the borough, if formally agreed, for “his exceptional contribution to sport”.

    Manchester United-bound Sancho has also previously spoken out and acted upon horrific racism – something which “exemplifies the values that Southwark Council holds in highest regard”.

    Mayor of Southwark Barrie Hargrove announced his intention to award the footballer with the highest civic award the Council can give during a meeting on Wednesday night.

    He said: “Watching Jadon play in the Euro tournament was incredible.

    “I felt, like many residents, that he is a diamond in Southwark’s crown and we could not be more proud of him and what he achieved for this country – the team brought everyone together and gave us hope and joy when we needed it most.

    “This is why I am recommending that he be considered for Freedom of the Borough, the highest accolade we can give.”

    Dortmund’s Sancho was born in Camberwell, south London in March 2000 and helped Southwark under 11s win the football tournament at the 2011 London Youth Games.

    He joined Watford at the age of seven before developing at Manchester City’s prestigious academy.

    BOLT BACKS LIONS’ RACISM VICTIMS

    Usain Bolt thinks the racist abuse suffered by England’s Euro 2020 penalty-missers is ‘horrible’.

    The sprint legend spoke out after Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, Arsenal teenager Bukayo Saka and incoming Old Trafford wideman Jadon Sancho were targeted with vile messages.

    The Three Lions trio all missed penalties against Italy in the shootout at Wembley.

    And all were sent racist messages on social media after the final defeat on Sunday.

    Jamaican athlete Bolt, 34, became the latest star to support the England trio.

    The eight-time Olympic champion said: “First of all that’s horrible to know – for me it’s very tough to see these things.

    “As an African and a Black person, I can tell it must be rough on them and you can’t blame these guys, they don’t make the decision of who takes the penalties.

    “It’s football, you win some, you lose some and it’s tough for you to lose. I’ve gone through it with my team, but I won’t curse anybody or try to put them down when it comes to race or anything.”

    GEORGINA'S SOME-BLING SPECIAL

    Georgina Rodriguez outshone boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo as she arrived at the Cannes Film Festival with a spectacular sparkler of a ring.

    After reports earlier this month that the couple have got engaged, the Spanish model posted a picture aside a yacht of her in a revealing outfit  – with the silver-coloured band on her wedding finger.

    Georgina, 27, who has 26million Instagram followers, then swapped styles completely for the festival ceremony.

    She stepped out with a knitted blue two-piece and over-sized black sunglasses – not unlike a 1950s movie star, except she showed off her midriff.

    Georgina and Juventus legend Ronaldo, 36, have been on holiday on a yacht around Mallorca with their children following his Euro 2020 disappointment with Portugal.

    But they have kept their social media fans up to date with sunny snaps.

    And on Tuesday Georgina even posted a picture of a kiss worthy of a movie finale.

    She set foot on land in Cannes in a black-flecked white mini-skirt with matching midriff-exposing top, captioning the shot: "Many know my name, few know who I am."

    And she went for a far more classical look when she joined other celebrities and movie bigwigs on the Cannes version of a red carpet.

    The side-slitted skirt with her cardigan had an elegant green line running down it.

    Perhaps it was a coincidental nod to Italy's Euro glory – or a reminder of Ronaldo's Portugal…

    NEV PULLS HAMSTRING RACING OLYMPIC ACE DINA

    Gary Neville pulled his hamstring while racing Britain’s fastest female sprinter Dina Asher-Smith over 100m.

    The Manchester United legend, 46, was interviewing the 25-year-old Team GB star, who won Olympic relay bronze, for his YouTube channel The Overlap.

    Man Utd hero Gary Neville pulls hamstring during race with Team GB’s Tokyo 2020 Olympics star Dina Asher-Smith

    After a heart-to-heart with Asher-Smith about the upcoming Games in Tokyo and the ongoing fight against racism, Neville was challenged to a 100m dash by the sprinter and coach John Blackie.

    After being given a 10m headstart, Neville felt his hamstring go just seconds in – before blaming 2019 Sports Personality Coach of the Year, Blackie.

    After pulling up just a few metres in, Neville squeaked: “Oh no! I knew it would go. It was always going to go, wasn’t it?

    “Coach, you didn’t warm me up properly. Coach of the Year? He’s pulled my hamstring!”

    Neville never pulled his hamstring during his 19-year playing career for United and England – despite making 687 appearances in all competitions for club and country.

    In fact, the right-back only ever suffered one major injury – an ankle issue that kept him sidelined for 11 months in 2007.

    Incredibly, having retired in 2011, Neville has since pulled his hamstring TWICE.

    SEVEN ‘N HELL

    Euro 2020 is over, the Copa America is complete and all eyes now turn to the start of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign.

    And that means fans are getting their first glimpses of their team’s pre-season festivities.

    Top-flight clubs have been swarming supporters’ social media feeds with behind-the-scenes snaps from training.

    Scattered among the superstars, some forgotten faces have been spotted getting down to work, from Sead Kolasinac at Arsenal to Liverpool’s Loris Karius.

    We’ve taken a look at SEVEN players you might be forgiven for forgetting were still in the Premier League as pre-season rumbles on.

    CHELSEA – Danny Drinkwater & Ross Barkley

    MAN UTD – Andreas Pereira & Phil Jones

    ARSENAL – Sead Kolasinac

    TOTTENHAM – Ryan Sessegnon

    LIVERPOOL – Loris Karius

    WAN ON ONE: AARON VS TRIPPIER

    Kieran Tripper remains strongly linked with Manchester United to compete for the right-back spot with Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

    But who would Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prefer if he has to pick between the two for his starting line-up?

    One good place to start is the statistics, and what they say about each player.

    Owing to a suspension for a betting rule breach, Trippier played almost 20 fewer games than Wan-Bissaka in 2020-21.

    United's long run in all three cup competitions, plus their first-choice's dominance of the position, meant he played a whopping 54 matches.

    Wan-Bissaka's greatest asset in comparison to Trippier is clearly his defensive contribution.

    The 23-year-old produced 0.5 more tackles per game, 0.3 more interceptions, and 0.2 more blocks than his potential club-mate.

    Many have praised Wan-Bissaka for being an exceptional defensive right-back and these numbers, topping an experienced star in Trippier, demonstrate why.

    But he also has the edge in terms of passing accuracy, at 85.2 per cent to 79.5 per cent.

    CAMAVINGA SET TO SNUB PREM

    Eduardo Camavinga is set to snub Premier League interest in favour of LaLiga, according to reports.

    The Rennes wonderkid has drawn admiration from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

    But according to The Telegraph, Camavinga has his ‘heart set’ on a move to Spain.

    Neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona are well placed to make a bid for the 18-year-old, given their financial woes.

    But both are expected to be better placed next summer – when Camavinga’s contract at Rennes expires.

    GOLDEN BOY

    Marcus Rashford's former coach has labelled the striker a national hero and lifted the lid on his talents as a youngster.

    Speaking on talkSPORT, David Horrocks – Rashford's former coach at Fletcher Moss Rangers – said: "This young man has done so much for us and so much for the community and the country, he must be feeling so low, what else can the man do?

    “We know what he’s done for the kids in our community, by getting the free school meals he must have easily put food on the plates of about 70 per cent of the children who are part of our club, let alone other kids across the country.

    “That is a phenomenal thing to do, for him to do that and also what he does on the pitch, he inspires so many kids.

    "What he’s done regarding getting kids reading at school and at home, it’s just so inspirational.

    “This young man is a hero in everybody’s hearts, and whether they go to Fletcher Moss Rangers or not, he’s seen as a hero all over the country.”

    TOKYO SHIFT

    With Euro 2020 and Copa America now in the history books, it's time to turn our attention back to domestic football – or is it?

    For most clubs, pre-season is now well underway ahead of the Premier League's return on August 13.

    But a number of top-flight teams will be without at least one star for the majority of pre-season after seeing players called up to their nation's Olympics squad.

    A total of 16 countries have qualified for the tournament in Tokyo, including France, Spain, Brazil and Argentina.

    And a total of nine Premier League clubs WILL have to make do without at least on player, with Manchester United missing two first-teamers.

    Marca claim that the French ace is keen on a move to Manchester United with the Old Trafford side set to battle for Europe’s top club prize next season.

    And Football journalist Fabrizio Romano admitted that the Red Devils could be set to join the race for the defender’s signature with the club looking to strengthen their defensive options.

    Romano told the Here We Go Podcast: “We need to keep an eye on Manchester United for Kounde.

    “It’s true they want Varane but Kounde has always been on the list. The situation is open.”

    GOING BARC

    Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are in advanced talks to swap Antoine Griezmann and Saul Niguez, according to reports.

    Atletico boss Diego Simeone is still fond of the French forward, who starred for Atleti between 2014 and 2019.

    According to Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona and Atletico are now in advanced talks, although the former want money included as well as Saul.

    The midfielder played with Griezmann at Atleti, but wants a new challenge.

    Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool have all registered their interest, but could be gazumped by Barca's willingness to let Griezmann go.

    According to Marca, however, the deal could still fall down over Griezmann's wage demands, which Atletico may struggle to match.

    MAG-ICAL BOSS

    Harry Maguire has revealed his relief that Gareth Southgate will lead England into the World Cup next year.

    The Three Lions manager is contracted until after the 2022 tournament in Qatar and the FA wants to extend the deal.

    The Manchester United captain said: “It is good that everything is settled. You don’t want anything hanging over the team.

    “He has done an amazing job from when he first took over. We spoke about how we wanted to be recognised as the best team. So to reach the final of Euro 2020 is a great achievement but we now have to take the next step and be convincing in these big games and these big moments.

    “I think Gareth has done an amazing job and deserves the credit and deserves another opportunity.”

    Southgate has been manager since 2016 but said: “I did not want to outstay my welcome” in terms of agreeing a longer contract.

    RAPHA THE RED

    Man Utd have received a huge boost in their bid to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, according to reports.

    Los Blancos' wage bill is reportedly set to be slashed by more than a third which has thrown massive doubt over the Frenchman's future at the club.

    The financial impact of Covid-19 has hit the Spanish giants hard.

    That and a huge stadium rebuild have left Real with mounting debt – and they have not paid a fee for a player for almost two years.

    And as a result their LaLiga wage cap will be reduced from £403million to £255m next season, according to the Athletic.

    That has seen Varane, Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale all have their futures thrown up in the air.

    RON HIS WAY BACK

    Juventus have insisted Cristiano Ronaldo has given no indication he wants to leave and that they expect him back for training this month.

    The 36-year-old Portuguese legend only has a year left on his contract in Italy and faces an uncertain future at Juve with Man Utd and Paris Saint-Germain believed to be keen to secure his services.

    However, Juventus director Pavel Nedved is adamant that the icon has not asked to quit the club a year early.

    And he expects him back in Turin after the superstar has finished holidaying following his exploits at Euro 2020 that saw him secure the golden boot at the tournament.

    Nedved said: “Cristiano is on holiday. We have no signal from his entourage that he wants to leave.

    “We’re waiting for him and he will return around 25 July as scheduled.”

    TAKING THE NIC

    Manchester United will NOT be signing Inter Milan midfielder Nicola Barella this summer.

    That is according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who has also stated Liverpool are interested in the Euro 2020 winner.

    He tweeted: "There’s nothing going on between Manchester United or Liverpool with Inter to sign Nicolo Barella.

    "He’s not for sale this summer – Inter consider Barella ‘untouchable’ despite rumours.

    The club have the same position also on Romelu Lukaku as of today."
