Paper Talk: Bellerin prefers Prem stay; Spurs back in for PSG star

Date published: Monday 27th February 2017 8:03

Hector Bellerin wants to join Manchester City and not Barcelona this summer, while Tottenham could revive their interest in PSG star Adrien Rabiot, according to Monday’s newspapers.


Chelsea are set to muscle in on AC Milan’s £21million move for Villarreal’s Argentine defender Mateo Musacchio.

Musacchio has reportedly all-but-agreed a San Siro switch after his release clause was met by the Italian giants, but The Sun reports that Antonio Conte is ready to swoop for the 26-year-old.

Musacchio is seen as a replacement for John Terry, who is out of contract at the end of the season.


Sergio Aguero wants to join Real Madrid at the end of the season after he lost his starting spot to Gabriel Jesus.

The prolific 28-year-old was surprisingly kept out of City’s starting XI by the arrival of the Palmeiras hotshot, who exploded onto the Premier League scene following his January switch and made himself impossible to leave out.

Despite returning to the side after Jesus suffered a fractured metatarsal that will keep him out for two months, Aguero is not keen on life on the bench next season and has targeted a move to the Spanish giants according to The Sun.

Aguero, who previously played for Real’s City rivals Atletico Madrid, is likely to fetch a fee of over £60million should he leave The Etihad at the end of the current campaign.
