LIGHT STRIKER
Manchester City are keeping a close eye on developments in Milan, where Lautaro Martinez expects an additional £ 100,000 a week before moving closer to a new contract at Inter.
It’s not news that City are on the hunt for a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero – and following their latest setback, a short-term replacement could be in order as well. Not everyone is as generous as Burnley.

It’s probably not obligatory for The New Aguero to be Argentinian, but there’s no reason it can’t be, right? Martinez has 11 goals in 21 games for Argentina and has a £ 98million release clause in his contract with Inter.

The Italians are keen to increase that amount significantly, but they will need to significantly increase Martinez’s current weekly pay of £ 38,000 for him to sign anything. According to the Mirror, he is apparently disappointed that a dozen of the club’s players are currently earning more than him, and he probably has a point.

‘GREAT DANE
Especially since one of these dozen is Christian Eriksen, who has been downright reels since his big move from Spurs earlier this year. It just didn’t happen for Eriksen, did it? Having clearly planned to move from Spurs to one of the real giants, it ended up being Inter or nothing.

Nothing probably would have been better, and now Inter chief Giuseppe Marotta has said it Sky Italy that Eriksen almost certainly left in January in what he calls a ‘working’ transfer for the club. Eriksen could still find himself at his former title-chasing club, but his fall from grace could still continue with lackluster fodder in the middle of the table as Manchester United and Arsenal seen as more likely destinations for a player who has still only 28 years old when he has surely become a professional footballer for at least 15 years.

CROWN JUL
Leeds is not kidding. Currently having a rare time in the Premier League under the direction of FIFA Coach of the Year Marcelo Bielsa, the Whites have identified another member of this quintet as their main target to replace Bielsa if he decides he will. had had enough of Yorkshire, as if such a thing were possible.

Jolen Lopetegui restored his reputation from a terrible spell at Real Madrid, leading Sevilla to more Europa League glory last season and a 16th place in the Champions League this time around, and The sun reckon he is Leeds’ main target as and when such a thing becomes necessary.

The Spaniard has expressed interest in one day managing the Premier League, The Sun says as if that meant something. Be weird – and more newsworthy – if he had said otherwise. But stay.
