It looks like good news and bad news for Arsenal regarding two summer targets, while PSG are open to selling a prime Liverpool target, according to Wednesday’s European papers.
PSG SET TO HANG ON TO ADLI
Paris Saint-Germain look set to prevent youth academy graduate Yacine Adli from signing a professional contract with Arsenal.
ESPN claim “a source close” to the Ligue 1 club says the 17-year-old will now pen senior terms with PSG, despite travelling to London for talks with the Gunners.
Adli travelled to The Emirates with his agent Moussa Sissoko last weekend and was pictured in the capital, but PSG sporting director Antero Henrique persuaded Adli that his future lies with the Ligue 1 champions and not with former PSG boss Unai Emery.
ISCO REVERSES DECISION TO QUIT REAL MADRID
Isco has decided to stay at Real Madrid this summer after being cheered by the European champions’ appointment of Julen Lopetegui as their new manager.
Lopetegui’s appointment at the Bernabeu has thrown Spain’s World Cup plans into chaos with the nation sacking him on the eve of the tournament and appointing former Real Madrid defender Fernando Hierro in his place.
But news of Lopetegui’s appointment at the Bernabeu has at least been welcomed by Isco, who had emerged as a central figure under the former Malaga boss at international level.
Don Balon claims he has now decided to stay at the club next season and end all talk of a departure. It was suggested the player had held secret talks over an €80m switch to Manchester United, but Jose Mourinho’s hopes of luring him away have now been shattered.
Isco had been in and out of the Real Madrid side under Zinedine Zidane, but looks set to play a key role next season under Lopetegui.
