Paper Talk: Mou wants Kane over CR7; Arsenal eye Martial

Date published: Sunday 25th June 2017 7:52

Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United to go and sign a Spurs star, while Arsenal are considering a move for a French winger, according to Sunday’s papers.


Mou wants Kane

Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United to bring him Tottenham star Harry Kane and ignore a possible move for Cristiano Ronaldo.

This is according to the Sunday Mirror, who claim that the Portuguese boss would prefer a move for the England international rather than a dream return for the Real Madrid star.

It is believed that Mourinho is a keen admirer of the Spurs striker, and that he feels United should launch a world-record move for the striker.

Mourinho also still wants to bring Alvaro Morata to Old Trafford, as he apparently feels having Kane and Morata up top is a better option than to re-sign Ronaldo.

The Premier League Golden Boot winner has a contract at Spurs until 2022, and it is believed that the North London club could command a fee in excess of £100million.


Martial’s exit route

Arsenal will reportedly consider a move for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial if Kylian Mbappe chooses Real Madrid.

The Mail on Sunday claim that Arsene Wenger is willing to give Martial a fresh start after a difficult campaign in 2016/17.

The Frenchman made just 18 starts, scoring four goals last season, whereas in 2015/16 he made 29 starts and scored 11.

Despite this, the Mail claim that the Gunners are willing to spend £40m on Martial should they fail in their pursuit of Mbappe.

The Monaco striker remains a priority this summer for Arsenal, but with Real Madrid also chasing the starlet, a deal could prove to be difficult.
