Manchester United and Real Madrid could be about to agree a deal that would see Karim Benzema and David De Gea move in opposite directions, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Everton are taking a close look at Marseille midfielder Dimitri Payet, according to The Guardian, while Sky Sports claim Chelsea remain favourites to sign Radamel Falcao after his loan spell with Manchester United.
