Chelsea could face competition for the signing of England goalkeepers Jack Butland and Nick Pope.

Reports over the weekend suggested that Stoke’s Butland and Burnley’s Pope have been lined up by the Blues amid reports that Real Madrid want Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Sun say Bournemouth are also interested in the two keepers as potential replacements for former Chelsea man Amir Begovic.

The Sun also say Bournemouth face a battle hang onto Ryan Fraser, who is reportedly wanted by Arsenal.

The Daily Telegraph say Eden Hazard has no intention of signing a new contract, potentially forcing Chelsea to accept an offer from Real Madrid this summer.

The Daily Star, on the other hand, say Chelsea will not budge on their £100m asking price despite the possible risk of losing him on a free transfer in 2020.

Manchester United continue to be linked with Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.

The Sun again say that United plan to activate a £25m release clause in Alderweireld’s contract this summer.

But the newspaper adds that United are yet to make contact with Spurs about a potential deal.

And Declan Rice continues to be linked with United.

The Star say United are lining up a move for the West Ham midfielder, while The Independent say Nemanja Matic will be allowed to leave Old Trafford if Rice arrives.
