    KOU WANTS ME?

    LaLiga clubs Barcelona and Real Madrid have joined the race for highly-rated Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, according to reports.

    The 22-year-old has also been linked with Premier League sides Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in recent months.

    According to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have been monitoring Kounde for two years and now want to sign him.

    But the Catalan giants are said to be struggling to afford the player's rumoured €75million release clause – around £64.5m.

    It is believed Sergio Aguero's new club may offer some players as part of a swap deal to help fund a move.

    Kounde's international colleague Samuel Umtiti is rumoured to be one of those stars Barca manager Ronald Koeman is happy to let go.

    Real Madrid are also thought to be keeping a close eye on the Sevilla defender as they may need to replace Raphael Varane this summer.

    The four-time Champions League winner is entering the final year of his contract at the Bernabeu, with both United and Chelsea rumoured to be interested.

    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    Rafael van der Vaart has told Donny van de Beek: You've bitten off more than you can chew in joining Man United.

    The ex-Spurs ace told ESPN: "United could be a step too high for Van de Beek.

    "If nobody leaves United during the summer, he is going to need to get lucky to break into their starting eleven.

    "He is much too good to remain sat on the bench for two seasons. He needs to get regular playing time soon.

    "He is still young, but the time is flying past. Joining a club like Borussia Dortmund would have been better for him.

    "Donny was a perfect fit for Ajax's system, but he does not fit in at United.”

    Meanwhile, United will continue to keep tabs on all their transfer targets during Euro 2020.

    According to Manchester Evening News, United will be following the progress of England's Jadon Sancho and Declan Rice.

    The same goes for France international Raphael Varane and Spain ace Pau Torres.

    The Red Devils could try and seal a deal before the end of the competition.

    Finally, United striker Edinson Cavani has confirmed he is to become a father for the fourth time.

    The 34-year-old’s partner Jocelyn Burgardt has also revealed they are expecting a boy and will call him Silvestre.

    Jocelyn said she was due to give birth in mid-June and revealed: “We want our son to be born in Uruguay.”

    LUKE AWAY

    England boss Gareth Southgate will be sweating over Luke Shaw's fitness ahead of Euro 2020 after the defender was spotted with a cast around his left wrist.

    The 25-year-old looks to be a serious doubt to feature in tonight's friendly against Austria after being snapped sporting a slight injury.

    MAGUIRE UPDATE

    Manchester United star Harry Maguire has issued a promising injury update.

    Maguire told SunSport: "The fear that I had was missing everything.

    “I knew it was quite a bad injury. When I got the results of the scan, I knew it would be unlikely I would made the Europa League final — but we also never ruled it out.

    “I would jump out of bed and put weight on my ankle, which I probably should not have done, and test it to see if the pain was still there. Every morning, I woke up wishing the pain would be gone.

    “Unfortunately, it was not to be. I knew for me to start the Europa League final was very unlikely but I hoped to play some part. However it was out of reach and just not possible. Ahead of the final, I could still not run on the ankle.

    “But it is now improving and getting better, so I am just looking forward to the Euros”
