GRIEZMANN PLAYS DOWN SPECULATION
After being linked to Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea in recent weeks, it looks like Antoine Griezmann is set to be one of the most sought-after transfer targets of the summer.

However, the Real Sociedad winger - who's valued at around £20m - has played down speculaiton surrounding his future.

The France interntational told El Mundo Deportivo: "PSG, Juventus, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Real Sociedad; I do not know where I will be celebrating my 24th birthday.

"I do not think too much about that. I think about playing at the moment and nothing more.

"I did not say I wanted to leave this club. This is not the time to talk about this stuff."

Griezmann has played a starring role for La Real this season as they battle to return to the Champions League, and the winger will be hoping to make Dider Deschamps' squad for the World Cup after winning his first cap in the February friendly against Holland.


DE GEA IN LINE FOR NEW CONTRACT
According to various reports, David De Gea is in line for a new contract at Manchester United after impressing David Moyes with his performances this season.

The 23-year-old made a stunning double save in United's win over Olympiakos on Wednesday, which earned his manager's praise.

"David de Gea has been terrific," said Moyes. "He has been great. He came in as a good young goalkeeper and he is turning into a great goalkeeper with a lot more to come.

"The club are always going to keep their best players."

PARDEW WARNS BEN ARFA
There's plenty of talk that Hatem Ben Arfa will be on his way out of Newcastle in the summer after a desperately disappointing season.

Back in September, the 27-year-old claimed he could still win the Ballon d'Or, saying: "In 20 or 30 years, I want my name to be mentioned alongside those of Platini, Zidane, Pele or Maradona."

However, after his performances this year his name isn't even being mentioned in the same breath as Yoan Gouffran, leading Alan Pardew to call for Ben Arfa to show what he can offer between now and the end of the campaign.

"I've not lost patience with him but Hatem has to gain the trust of not just me but our players and fans," said Pardew.

"He has to show he's the real deal if he's going to play."
