Man Utd target a second Real Madrid star
Real Madrid have offered Manchester United the chance to sign Marco Asensio. The Spanish champions want to offload the winger before he can leave on a free transfer next summer.
The offer came before the Red Devils signed Casemiro for €70 million. It still stands, although United’s priority is Ajax winger Antony, who may cost as much as €100 million.
Asensio, who is in the final year of his Real Madrid contract, is available for €30 million. The 26-year-old Spaniard wants to leave the Bernabeu this summer. [Telegraph – subscription required]

Navas could have his PSG contract terminated
Paris Saint-Germain and Keylor Navas are in talks to terminate the goalkeeper’s contract.
Navas has slipped down the pecking order at the Parc des Princes. The 35-year-old is a clear No.2 behind Gianluigi Donnarumma, who has started in goal for all of PSG’s four games this season. He has been in talks over a transfer to Serie A club Napoli. [Foot Mercato – in French]
West Ham to make improved bid for Paqueta
The Hammers have made another bid to sign Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta.
Lyon previously rejected an offer worth around €50 million from West Ham. The French giants want a higher fee, as AC Milan, who sold Paqueta to Lyon in 2020, are due a percentage of the fee as a sell-on. Transfer talks between the clubs, therefore, remain ongoing.
