Football rumours from the media
Tiemoue Bakayoko, Raheem Sterling and Jason Denayer all feature in the latest transfer gossip.
What the papers say
Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko could be heading for AC Milan on a season-long loan, The Sun reports. Despite having only spent one season in the Premier League, the move could become permanent for the French midfielder, who has struggled to make the starting XI since moving from Monaco last year.
Raheem Sterling’s impressive performance against Arsenal appears to have made his contract negotiations at Manchester City even more pressing. According to the Mail, boss Pep Guardiola is keen to keep the winger at the Etihad beyond his current £180,000-a-week deal, which runs out in less than two years.
Staying with Manchester City, and the same cannot be said for the fortunes for Jason Denayer. The 23-year-old has been on loan at Celtic, Sunderland and Galatasaray and is now said to want a more permanent deal. According to the Star, the Turkish club is the preferred option for the centre-back, having been part of the title-winning team last season.
