Man Utd, Liverpool and Spurs could all be subject to a raid from Real Madrid, while Inter Milan have rejected an €80m bid from Man City, according to Wednesday’s European papers.



Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is reportedly examining the signing of three possible Premier League stars as he looks to land his next ‘Galactico’.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, Real were keeping a close eye on last night’s Champions League action, as Liverpool star Sadio Mane is one of the names being considered.

Recent speculation has claimed that the Reds have apparently told Real it will cost a huge £196million to sign Mane this summer.

That came after Spanish newspaper El Confidencial claimed last week that Zidane had earmarked Mane as the star man he wants this summer.

However, they were also interested in events in north London, as the report claims that Spurs star Christian Eriksen is a potential target.

The outstanding Denmark international’s current deal runs out in 18 months time and he has been locked in talks over a bumper new contract for some time.

Los Blancos are circling though, and it has been suggested that the LaLiga giants are preparing a £100m bid to try and convince Spurs to sell this summer.

Finally, the report talks of a ‘great desire’ to land Paul Pogba – who will be in action for Manchester United against Barcelona at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Rumours have been rife of the Frenchman heading to the Bernabeu at the end of the season ever since Pogba admitted it would be a dream to play for the LaLiga giants one day, while reports have suggested they are lining up a £125m bid.
