What the papers say

Chelsea are said to have suffered a double transfer blow, with their pursuits of Mauro Icardi and Krzysztof Piatek both set to fail. According to the London Evening Standard, it is believed Argentina international Icardi would only consider leaving Inter Milan for Real Madrid, while Genoa are understood to have ruled out the possibility of selling Poland international Piatek in the new year.

Manchester United and Manchester City have received a boost in the chase for Slovakian defender Milan Skriniar, The Sun says. Reports in Spain suggest the 23-year-old has failed to agree a contract extension with Inter, putting both sides on high alert, the paper reports.
