    EUR STAYING

    Gareth Southgate is going to stay as England boss regardless of what happens at Euro 2020.

    The Three Lions have been drawn with bitter rivals Germany in the Euro's Round of 16.

    The national team has had a difficult past with the Germans and if Joachim Low’s side extend that tradition then Southgate will still have the FA’s “unwavering” support until the 2024 European Championship in Germany.

    FA’s chief executive Mark Bullingham said: “Am I enjoying the football? Yes, I am.

    “Gareth has done a brilliant job, finishing top of the group, with a really solid defence. He’s done really well on and off the pitch in every aspect.

    “Our support is unwavering, 100 per cent unwavering. We want him to carry on, regardless of Tuesday. Absolutely. Regardless of the group stage of this tournament, we would have wanted him to carry on”

    Brighton are playing hardball with Arsenal over Ben White and demanding £50million PLUS add-ons, SunSport can exclusively reveal.

    Arsenal’s second bid of £42m — in an overall deal which could have been worth £45m — has now been turned down.

    A number of other top clubs had been interested in the England international

    BOY DON GOOD

    Liverpool have started transfer talks to sign the Netherlands' Euro 2020 star Donyell Malen.

    That is according to Sky Sports Germany, who claim that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp wants to waste no time in luring PSV Eindhoven star Malen to Anfield and secure his signature early.

    Klopp is determined to land a new forward this summer following last season's disappointing campaign.

    PSV would be willing to sell the 22-year-old but only if they receive an offer in the region of £34million

    HIT THE ROAD JACK

    Manchester City are plotting a bid for Aston Villa star Jack Grealish after Euro 2020.

    In fact, it seems like City are willing to break the current British transfer record, which sits at the £89million Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba.

    And Grealish's camp are confident they have got the green light for him to leave Villa.

    City manager Pep Guardiola is desperate to bring the forward to the Etihad this summer as he plots a title defence and to finally win the club’s first Champions League.

    Villa have remained insistent they do not want to sell the 25-year-old, who has four years left to run on the current deal with his boyhood club.

    But SunSport understands talks with the England international's agents Stellar over the past few weeks have left his team happy they now have an agreement which would allow the playmaker to quit once the Euros are over

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Harry Kane is blocking out one long epic saga to concentrate on another at these Euros.

    The striker, 27, said: “It’s not concerned me at all. When I come away with England, I’m just fully focused on England.

    “My brother is my agent but the only time I’ve spoken to him over the last few weeks, it was just ‘good luck, let’s get a win and let’s take England all the way’.

    “So it doesn’t bother me about the outside noise. When I’m here, I’m with the boys. I try to help them, be a leader in the team.

    “I need to get to know the boys, see what makes certain players tick, so I feel like I’ve got enough on my plate to worry about anything outside of England.

    “That’s where I’m at and I feel like it’s one of those, where if you’re not scoring as a striker, people look for every little angle as to why you’re not scoring.

    “That’s probably the case in this tournament so far but as long as I’m focused, I’ve got the self-belief I have and I’m not worried about anything else.”

    Meanwhile, Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane wants to complete a move to Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

    The 28-year-old French international joined the Spanish giants from Lens way back in 2011 for the price of £8.5million.

    But according to The Independent, Varane now wants away from the Spanish capital as Real prepare to go through a period of transition.

    However, the major hurdle facing Man Utd is the centre-back’s huge wage demands

    He is reportedly holding out for an astronomical figure of £400,000 per week.

    That would make him the highest paid player at Old Trafford, eclipsing keeper David de Gea.

    And finally, SunSport can reveal that Crystal Palace are reviving interest in Steve Cooper after their hunt for a manager took another twist.

    The Eagles missed out on former Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre having got a deal virtually over the line on Thursday.

    And it means Palace chairman Steve Parish is now ready to turn back to Swansea boss Cooper to replace Roy Hodgson at
    Selhurst Park.

    Palace have already been linked with Cooper, who has a £3 million release fee at Swansea.

    Relegated Fulham have also been interested in securing him to replace outgoing boss Scott Parker in a summer managerial merry-go-round.

    The Championship club baulked at the compensation package but it isn’t believed to be stopping Premier League Palace.

    JAD ENOUGH

    Jadon Sancho has told his England team-mates that he's 'heading to Old Trafford', according to reports.

    SunSport revealed earlier this month that the winger has agreed a five-year, £350,000-a-week deal to join Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund.

    The two clubs have still been haggling over the fee, with add-ons the biggest point of contention.

    But the £80million deal is edging closer.

    According to Tom McDermott, Sancho has confirmed to his Three Lions pals that he's definitely off to United.

    He adds that the deal is 'practically done'.

    And that issues over add-ons have been 'ironed out'.

    DOR OPENED

    Borussia Dortmund are reportedly interested in signing PSV Eindhoven forward Donyell Malen.

    And the German club could use some of the money from Jadon Sancho’s imminent sale to Manchester United to fund the move.

    Personal terms between Sancho and United have been agreed, with the Red Devils now needing to stump up an additional £8.5million to complete the deal.

    Dortmund are plotting a £25m move for Malen, according to German outlet Bild.

    And talks between Dortmund and Malen’s agen Mino Raiola have already begun.

    The fee for the Netherlands international could rise but the Bundesliga club view the 22-year-old as Sancho’s replacement.

    MBAP TO THE FUTURE

    Paris Saint-Germain are struggling to convince Kylian Mbappe to sign a new contract this summer.

    But they have had more luck with his little brother Ethan.

    Kylian's wonderkid bro Ethan Mbappe, 15, has put pen to paper on a three-year youth contract at Parc des Princes.

    A forward like his older sibling, the younger Mbappe has been banging them in since his PSG debut as an Under-12.

    Kylian might be on the way to Madrid in the next 12 months.

    But Ethan has committed to trying to break into the first team in Paris during the next three seasons.

    GUNNER MISS OUT

    William Saliba will MISS Arsenal's pre-season this summer.

    The defender, 20, will instead be on international duty, after being called up to France's 18-man squad for the Olympics in Japan.

    Les Bleus will kick off their campaign at Tokyo Stadium on July 22.

    And should they be successful, they will play the final at Yokohama Stadium on August 7.

    This means that Saliba may still be playing at the Olympics just SIX days before Arsenal get their Premier League campaign underway against Brentford.

    The call-up will be an honour for Saliba, but is the latest blow for an Arsenal career that has never really got going.

    SARR LONG

    Chelsea defender Malang Sarr is wanted by Fenerbahce, according to reports in Turkey.

    Sarr, 22, signed for the Blues last summer, before joining Porto on loan.

    And he could depart on a temporary basis once again, with Takvim reporting Fenerbahce's interest.

    The Turkish giants were keen on Sarr last summer but were beaten to his signature by Chelsea, with the centre-back joining on a free and signing a five-year deal.

    That did not deter Fenerbahce's interest in the Frenchman, however.

    And Sarr is not thought to be part of Thomas Tuchel's plans for the upcoming season, so he could leave on loan.

    PAUL TO PLAY FOR

    Paulinho has reportedly been offered a return to European football – with Spanish champions Atletico Madrid.

    The 32-year-old ended his China stay at Guangzhou Evergrande by mutual consent this week.

    And reports say the ex-Spurs midfielder could return to Spain having left Barcelona two years ago to move back to the Chinese Super League in a £38million deal.

    Mundo Deportivo report that LaLiga winners Atletico Madrid are after the Brazilian midfielder.

    Galatasaray are also reported to have made an offer, while a return to Brazil is another option on the table.

    BA-LACKING COURAGE

    Michael Ballack has delivered a withering assessment of Germany’s chances against England – insisting too many of their players lack the heart for a battle.

    He said: “We always find it difficult when we play against countries who are mentally strong and good in one-on-one duels.

    “We have some lads who possess these characteristics – but not enough of them.

    “Unfortunately we have too many players who have not learned how to be flexible during matches.

    “They are pushed to their limits in difficult situations, when they need to win using other means than those originally planned.”

    RAF RIDE

    Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane wants to complete a move to Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

    The 28-year-old French international joined the Spanish giants from Lens way back in 2011 for the price of £8.5million.

    But according to The Independent, Varane now wants away from the Spanish capital as Real prepare to go through a period of transition.

    SEAL OF AB-ROVAL

    Everton are closing in on naming Rafa Benitez as their next manager after Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich reportedly gave his seal of approval.

    Benitez, 61, was appointed Chelsea's interim boss in November 2012 until the end of the season following the dismissal of Roberto Di Matteo.

    He went on to guide the West London club to a third place finish in the Premier League table.

    The Blues also lifted the Europa League trophy for the first time in their history after they beat Benfica 2-1 in the final.

    And according to The Independent, Abramovich was impressed enough by Benitez's work that he recommended him to Alisher Usmanov, a confidante and long-time business partner of Everton owner Farhad Moshiri.

    MORE ON TIERNEY

    Technical director Edu added: “We are so pleased to have agreed a new long-term deal with Kieran.

    "Anyone who has seen him play will recognise very quickly that he is a player of huge ability.

    "But I can tell you that he is also a player with a fantastic attitude and mentality.

    "Kieran’s new contract is not just about the present and next season, it’s with a long-term vision and Kieran being an integral part of the future of the club.”

    ARTETA ON TIERNEY

    Emirates boss Arteta has expressed his delight at Tierney signing a long-term extension – believed to be worth £110,000 per week – saying: “This is great news for us.

    "As manager of the club, speaking on behalf of the coaching staff and the entire staff, it’s a pleasure to work with KT.

    "His quality, energy, commitment and professionalism, not only on matchdays, but every day in training are always at such a high level.

    "KT gives us so much extra strength both defensively and offensively and it’s great to know that he’ll be with us for the long term.

    "Since his move from Celtic, his work ethic and quality has ensured that he is already one of most exciting players in the Premier League and a hugely important part of our team, both on and off the pitch.

    "I know all the fans will join me, the players and staff in looking forward to seeing KT playing in an Arsenal shirt for a few more years.”

    TIER WE GO

    Kieran Tierney has signed a new FIVE-YEAR contract at Arsenal worth £110,000 a week.

    The Scotland defender, 24, joined the Gunners in the summer of 2019 in a £25million deal from Celtic.

    Despite being hampered by injuries, Tierney has quickly became an integral member of Mikel Arteta's squad, playing 62 times at left-back, left-wing-back or even on the left of a central three.

    PREM PROMISE

    The Premier League have agreed to fund over 2,000 new defibrillators across grassroots football in the wake of Christian Eriksen’s brush with death.

    The first phase will see the AEDs rolled out to Football Foundation funded facilities which currently do not have access to the life-saving device.

    Then grassroots clubs across England who own their own facilities will then be able to apply for funding for a defibrillator.

    Over 2,000 sites will benefit from this investment, with the first 1,000 units delivered in time for the start of season 2021-22 and the second wave expected in September.

    Once installed, the AEDs will be accessible, if required, to an estimated 1.5m people that use these facilities per season.

    As part of the scheme, each recipient will have required to send at least one person on the FA’s free Sudden Cardiac Arrest course to learn how to use them and also help with tips on CPR.

    RAFA REVOULTION

    Everton are preparing for a sizeable shake-up this summer as they look set to appoint ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez as their new manager.

    The 61-year-old Spaniard has been out of work since leaving Chinese Super League side Dalian Professional in January.

    And he now looks set to return to the Premier League with Everton, more than a decade after his six-year stint on Merseyside came to an end with Liverpool.

    Benitez's arrival could see a number of new players follow him to Goodison Park. Here's how they could line-up…

    CAM AND GET IT

    Arsenal have reportedly made signing Rennes ace Eduardo Camavinga their top priority this summer.

    Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is planning a major overhaul of the squad that finished eighth in the Premier League last season.

    Beefing up the midfield is understood to be one of the Spaniard's main priorities.

    And according to reports, the 39-year-old has placed Camavinga at the top of his summer wishlist.

    DONE DEAL

    Manchester United title winner Alexander Buttner is trying to revive his stalled career – with Dutch minnows RKC Waalwijk.

    The defender, 32, helped the Red Devils lift their most recent Premier League crown eight years ago.

    Buttner has since played for Anderlecht, Vitesse Arnhem and New England Revolution, and joined Apollon Limassol in January.

    However his move to Cyprus swiftly turned sour. Local media claimed the left-back was released due to fitness concerns.

    Meanwhile the player's advisors insisted Apollon had failed to fulfil contractual promises.

    CHEEKY

    Chelsea are reportedly willing to give forgotten stars Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tiemoue Bakayoko another chance to shine at Stamford Bridge next season.

    The duo could get the opportunity to return to West London if Scottish prodigy Billy Gilmour completes his proposed loan move to either Wolves or Norwich City, according to The Guardian.

    They claim that if the 20-year-old prodigy seals a switch away from the Bridge the Blues will need cover to replace him.

    And rather than source new talent, The Guardian allege that Blues boss Thomas Tuchel wants to assess Loftus-Cheek and Bakayoko in pre-season training.

    If happy with the pair, Tuchel may reinstate them to his squad for the new Premier League season.

    PORT OF CALL

    Porto star Otavio is reportedly keen on a move to Liverpool – despite recently penning a new deal with the Portuguese giants.

    The Brazilian was on the radar of several clubs – including the Merseysiders – before he inked a new long-term deal at the Estadio do Dragao.

    But according to reports, the attacking midfielder is open to moving on to pastures new.

    Correio da Manha claims the 26-year-old is willing to up sticks and is being 'seduced' by the prospect of joining the Reds.

    The former Internacional ace is also reportedly being tracked by Fiorentina and Valencia and is said to view moves to either side 'with good eyes’.

    It's understood Porto have slapped a £51.5million release clause on Otavio, who joined their ranks as a fresh-faced 16-year-old – although he could now be available for just £34m.
