Paper round-up: Man Utd boss doesn’t want Tottenham star

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not want Manchester United to sign Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, according to The Sun.

United chief Ed Woodward is said to be lining up a deal for Alderweireld, who has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

The Sun say manager Solskjaer is less keen on the deal and would rather Woodward looked elsewhere.

The Sun also say Real Madrid see Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen as a potential back-up option if they fail to land United’s Paul Pogba.

Tottenham are in negotiations with Real Betis over the signing of Giovani Lo Celso, various newspapers say.

The Daily Mail say Arsenal and Leicester are interested in Valencia winger Ferran Torres, who could apparently be available for around £25m.

The Sun say Valencia want Javier Hernandez and that West Ham are ready to sell the striker.

Chelsea are waiting for a formal approach from Juventus for Maurizio Sarri, The Guardian reports, while the Mail say Chelsea are set to hold talks with Real Madrid with a view to agreeing a move for Eden Hazard.

Some fans were allowed into the Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal for free because authorities in Baku were embarrassed by the thousands of empty seats, The Times reports.
