Football rumours from the media
Paul Pogba, Gary Cahill and James Milner are being talked about in Wednesday’s papers.
Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United has been called into question after suggestions of a falling out with manager Jose Mourinho. The Daily Mirror reports the Old Trafford club want more than £200million to sell the France international, while the Sun said the midfielder will leave the Red Devils in January.
What the papers say
Sheffield Wednesday and Aston Villa are in the hunt for Chelsea defender Gary Cahill, reports the Sun. Cahill started his youth career in Dronfield, close to Sheffield, and could be tempted to return with Villa – the 32-year-old’s first club – also keen.
James Milner could head to Leeds should his former club return to the Premier League, the Daily Star says. Liverpool are yet to offer a new deal to the ex-Newcastle and Manchester City midfielder and has previously said he wants to return to Elland Road, according to the paper.
Southampton are said to be interested in signing Ghanaian striker Richmond Boakye, reports the Sun. The 25-year-old scored against Saints in a pre-season friendly for Jiangsu Suning and is now currently playing at Red Star Belgrade.
Free agent Steven Caulker, who has previously played for Tottenham, Cardiff and QPR, could sign a deal with Wigan, the Daily Mail says.
