08:00 UPDATE Man Utd transfer EXCLUSIVE

Juventus believe they can still prise Paul Pogba away from Manchester United – despite the player’s upturn in form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Express Sport understands Juventus remain keen to re-sign Pogba, who left Turin for United in 2016.

Pogba endured a miserable spell under former United manager Jose Mourinho – and that sparked hope that Juve could snap him up.

And despite the Frenchman now enjoying life at Old Trafford, Juve will apply pressure to try to bring the midfielder back to Italy.

07:30 UPDATE: Pochettino to Chelsea EXCLUSIVE

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is eyeing a sensational deal to poach Mauricio Pochettino from Tottenham, Express Sport understands.

Manchester United are keen to appoint Pochettino as their new manager come the summer.

But could swoop in on a deal, with pressure mounting on Maurizio Sarri.

It is understood Sarri has been warned by Abramovich via text message that he will be sacked if the Blues fail to secure Champions League football for next season – the bare minimum Abramovich expects from him manager.

07:00 UPDATE: Bad news for Real Madrid

Antonio Conte looks increasingly likely to get the Inter Milan job by the summer – and the persistent rumours are agitating Luciano Spalletti.

Conte is wanted at Real Madrid and has not managed since leaving Chelsea last summer.

But he has been spotted in Milan amid rumours Inter are set to bring in the Italian as a replacement for Spalletti.

And Tuttosport claim the current boss is not happy with the constant chatter surrounding his supposed replacement.

06:45 UPDATE: Spurs in Man Utd battle

Tottenham are set to battle to sign Bournemouth ace David Brooks.

Express Sport understands Spurs will make a swoop for the 21-year-old at the end of the season – but may have to splash out £50m to get the deal done.

United have regularly checked in on the youngster, who joined the Cherries from Sheffield United last summer.

Spurs have not signed a player in the past two transfer windows.

06:30 UPDATE: Chelsea exit snubbed

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill rejected the chance to leave this winter – because he reckons Maurizio Sarri will be sacked.

That is according to Stephen Warnock, who said: “The players are coming out now and challenging Sarri whereas they didn’t challenge Pep, they agreed with everything Pep said because they knew it was the right thing to do.

“Now with Sarri, when we go back to the Gary Cahill incident at this moment in time, he must be sat there thinking, ‘I’m not going because I’m getting a sense of something in this changing room that the players are not having this.’”

Cahill snubbed a move to Fulham in January even though his contract expires in the summer.

06:00 UPDATE: Arsenal want Rabiot

Arsenal will make their move to sign Adrien Rabiot when his PSG contract expires.

Express Sport understands the Gunners are happy to wait for Rabiot’s contract to end in the summer, which is why they didn’t make a move for the midfielder in January.

Barcelona have been persistently linked with Rabiot and PSG are said to be furious with the relationship that seems to be forming between the Nou Camp club and their own player.

Arsenal would likely have to pay Rabiot a lucrative contract to snatch him away from Barca.
