What the papers say

Manchester United are to make a further attempt to sign Dayot Upamecano to bolster their defence, the Daily Mail reports. Upamecano, on the books of RB Leipzig, is said not to have a release clause in his contract, meaning Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will have to spend big to land the 21-year-old.

Another player set to be on the move is Dani Ceballos, who the Daily Mail reports will rejoin Arsenal for a second consecutive season on loan. The paper adds the Gunners will not be given an option to sign the Real Madrid midfielder permanently.

Chelsea are set to push their summer spending past £200million as Frank Lampard’s side are on the verge of completing a move for Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz, the Guardian says. Havertz, 21, will join up with new signings Thiago Silva, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell for a fee of around £72m according to the paper.
