The Daily Mirror say that Manchester United have improved their bid for Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

United are said to have bid £28m for the 27-year-old Armenia midfielder.

Meanwhile Gareth Bales has a job for life at Real Madrid, according to the Daily Mail.

His ‘contract for life’ will make the 26-year-old one of the highest paid players in the world.

Chelsea are said to have bid almost £20m for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

The 25-year-old is a target for the Stamford Bridge outfit, so says the Daily Mirror.

The Times report that Real Madrid’s re-signing of forward Alvaro Morata from Juventus means Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal are all in the running for the 23-year-old.

Real are said to be keen to sell the Spanish international for profit.

And The Sun are running two football rumours – firstly that Brazil midfielder Willian is set to ignore interest from Manchester United to sign a new deal with Chelsea.

And they also report that Manchester City hope to complete a £40m swoop for Germany winger Leroy Sane, 20 - but late interest from Bayern Munich is holding up the deal.
