REAL TARGET AGUERO
The good news for Liverpool fans is that reports suggest that Real Madrid have given up on signing Luis Suarez this summer; the bad news for Man City fans is that Sergio Aguero is next on their list. And, according to the Daily Star, 'sources close to Aguero are suggesting the hit man is open to a move to the La Liga giants'.

That move would be worth something in the region of £60m - which would certainly help balance the books at the Etihad this summer. But the move is not expected until after the World Cup with Real president Florentino Perez saying: "Right now, there is no real urgency to sign any new players. We are not thinking about making a move for Aguero - at the moment."


ARSENAL BACK FOR MORATA
'Arsenal have reopened talks with Champions League winners Real Madrid over signing striker Alvaro Morata,' claims the Daily Telegraph. The Gunners tried to sign the 21-year-old striker in January but were foiled - a few months later Real 'are understood to be willing to negotiate'.

The fly in the ointment could be Madrid's insistence on a buy-back clause that would allow them to take Morata back to Spain if it turned out he was any good. Arsenal may instead ask about Karim Benzema, though it is thought that Carlo Ancelotti wants to keep the Frenchman.


CHELSEA IN ATLETICO TRIPLE SWOOP
What do you do when you get beaten in the semi-finals of the Champions League? Buy half the team that beat you, of course. They already own goalkeeper Thibault Courtois but The Times claim that he could be joined by three of his Rojiblanco teammates - Diego Costa, Filipe Luis and Tiago. The £32m deal to buy Diego Costa has been in place for some time, while Chelsea are apparently also showing a wilingness to match the £19.4m buy-out clause for left-back Luis. Tiago - now 33 - could return for free to re-join his old boss Jose Mourinho.
