Football rumours from the media – 26th October, 2017

What the papers say

Philippe Coutinho is still a wanted man, according to the Daily Mirror. The saga of the Liverpool attacking midfielder has been rumbling on since the summer transfer window when Barcelona made moves to snare the 25-year-old. Now the paper reports that Paris St Germain are also keen on bringing the Brazilian, who has a reported price tag of around £135million, to the Parc des Princes.

Real Madrid could make an audacious bid for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski over the summer, tabloids report. The Polish striker has previously said he is “obsessed” with the Spanish giants and the paper has reported that talks have already been held between the club and representatives for the 29-year-old.

After a stunning performance against Manchester City, Wolves defender Conor Coady is hot property, with Newcastle and West Brom taking an interest, according to tabloids. Coady, 24, impressed in the Carabao Cup defeat and has helped his side to the top of the Championship.

Speculation mounts that Luke Shaw is on his way out of Old Trafford, with the Times reporting the left-back has fallen out with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho as the 22-year-old has struggled to get a start this season.
