Liverpool have joined Chelsea and Arsenal in the race to sign a Brazil winger, while PSG will have to cough up if they want to lure Jose Mourinho from Manchester United, all in Sunday’s papers.


Liverpool are reportedly competing with Chelsea and Arsenal to sign Brazil winger Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 25-year-old is said to be ready to let his contract run down at Shakhtar and move for free in the summer, news that has alerted several of Europe’s top clubs, according to UOL.

However, the Ukrainian giants do not want to lose their star for nothing and are hoping that a deal can be struck in January.
