What the papers say

Everton are lining up another move for Adrien Rabiot over the summer, reports the Daily Mail. The Toffees were linked with a deal last summer and Carlo Ancelotti is keen on the 25-year-old midfielder who is currently on the books of Juventus, and will make an offer worth £26million.

David Alaba will be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the season, but there is still a question mark over his next destination. The Daily Mirror says the 28-year-old is keen on signing for Real Madrid, but doubts about whether Sergio Ramos will stick with the LaLiga side have put the move in doubt.

Sticking with Real Madrid, and Manchester United are said to be keen on their 22-year-old midfielder Federico Valverde, says the Sun.
