Football: Gareth Bale is in search of a new club
Gareth Bale is the man of the hour. He orchestrated Real Madrid's win in the Champions League with two wonder goals, but the Welshman seems to be unsettled in Spain. In another news report, Manchester United's record signing Paul Pogba is keen to return to Italy. Here are the top transfer rumors from European papers.
According to reports in Italy, Manchester United's mid-field ace Paul Pogba is keen on a return to Turin. The France international is not happy about the criticism he faces at Old Trafford, since his move from Juventus, and is now longing to go back to Italy. PSG are also keen on the Frenchman.
Joe Hart's fall from grace is unfathomable but he might get another chance to redeem himself. Manchester United are keen on signing the English goal-keeper as a back-up to David de Gea. Jose Mourinho fears losing Sergio Romero and Hart's experience makes him an ideal candidate for the Red Devils.
Gareth Bale who scored two goals to secure Real Madrid's 3rd successive Champions League title, could be on the move this summer. Bale is unhappy about the game time he is getting. With the likes of Manchester United and Bayern Munich circling around him, the Wales international is unlikely to settle for a spot on the bench.
Unai Emery is ready to make his first signing as Arsenal manager. The former PSG boss has identified Dortmund centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos as a primary defensive target. The Greece international could cost Arsenal a meagre £15 million and would be a valuable addition to Arsenal's floundering defense.
Lionel Messi has urged Barcelona's board to sign Juventus mid-field ace Miralem Pjanic, according to reports in Spain. With Andres Iniesta gone, Lionel Messi believes that Pjanic would be the right man to fill in the long-serving captain's shoes. However, Juventus might not be willing to let go of Pjanic easily.
