Mundo Deportivo on Bank Holiday Monday cover Alexis Sanchez and his exit from Barcelona. They say the Chile international is likely to be the frst to leave the Camp Nou as Barcelona change for the next season.
Sanchez has not been a failure at Barcelona but he's struggled to show what he can do in a team which slows down play and is so geared toward getting the ball to Lionel Messi. Sanchez would work much better in a quicker team, one which used their pace to scare the opposition in blistering attacks.
One just like Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool. Mundo cover Liverpool interest but say Juventus are now closest with a bid as low as €15m plus add-ons.
That is a ridiculously low price for one of the world's most exiting wide players who has proven over years what a quality player he is. Sanchez doesn't turn 26 until December and if he's as exciting at this World Cup as he was at the last then that offer from Juventus will look even more embarrassing.
Mundo say that Barcelona want €25m but Juventus are trying to get the player for cheaper. If Liverpool moved in, agreed to pay the perfectly reasonable €25m, and secured a deal then the signing of Sanchez would leave other Premier League clubs seriously worried and show that Liverpool were at the table for the top players.
Liverpool look set to be doing business with la Liga clubs this summer after more rumours emerged of interest in players. The Merseyside club have themselves been repeatedly linked with moves for some exciting talent in la Liga and now Spanish clubs are also looking at the prospect of signing players from Anfield.
The Dutch press are losing a bit of their excitement over Louis van Gaal to Manchester United now. A few days ago they'd have believed the English press had they claimed that Van Gaal was about to buy virtually any Dutch player but now they've turned.
For months the Catalan press have been building up a picture of Barcelona wanting to sell Cesc Fabregas. There have been several polls of fans conducted by Sport and Mundo Deportivo asking if Fabregas should be sold and it's usually been an overwhelming 80%+ saying that he should.
The Barcelona press are frequently infuriated by English clubs trying to take La Masia products away. Arsenal are usually the object of their ire but several premier League clubs, including Liverpool, keep an eye on the best young talents at the Spanish club.
Thibaut Courtois has done several interviews ahead of the Champions League final. The Belgian goalkeeper spoke to France Football earlier on in the week and it was refreshing not to hear him using an interview to distance himself from Chelsea, but rather to tell the world more about himself and his background.
Juan Mata has been speaking to Marca whilst away with the national team ahead of the World Cup. Spain picked a selection of 30 players and that will have to be reduced to 23 for the final squad, he was asked by Marca if he felt he should make the final cut.
The Diego Costa transfer to Chelsea has for months been confirmed. Every week there's several new articles in England and Spain saying that the deal has been finalised, for the umpteenth time. Transfer fees, wages, what happens with Courtois, contract length, Diego Simeone's pleas, so much has been covered that the transfer looks nailed on.
Chelsea could have a difficult summer ahead with Eden Hazard if PSG and Laurent Blanc get their way. The French manager has shown little regard for Chelsea when speaking about Hazard in the past and things haven't changed with his latest comments to Le Parisien, picked up by Le10.
