What the papers say
Manchester United are looking to trigger Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic‘s £8.9million buyout clause, according to the Daily Mail via Sportske Jutarnji. The Croatian club are reluctant to pay the 28-year-old an annual salary of £1.1million – which could also influence a move to Old Trafford.
The Telegraph reports that Mauricio Pochettino is not using an agent as he negotiates the finer points of his appointment as Chelsea’s next head coach. The 51-year-old is on the brink of becoming the permanent successor to Graham Potter at Stamford Bridge.
And the Daily Express reports via Sport Mediaset that Liverpool could blow a huge chunk of their summer transfer budget on Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella, 26. This is despite the club already ruling out the prospect of signing Jude Bellingham due to Borussia Dortmund’s massive asking price.
