Paper Round: Man Utd turn to Eriksen, Dybala talks ended by agent’s demands

Christian Eriksen, Paulo Dybala, Wilfried Zaha and Laurent Koscielny all feature in Tuesday’s Paper Round.

Looking at Erik

Paper Round’s view: With only a few days left in the transfer window, there is precious little time to negotiate, but Spurs would only begin such talks if they know they have Fernandes wrapped up. Expect to see this one rumble on all day Thursday.

Paper Round’s view: Yesterday it was wage demands and Dybala’s lack of enthusiasm for playing at United, this time around it’s the fees for the agent. This move always seemed far-fetched, and now the reasons are stacking up.

The £100m offer

Paper Round’s view: Unloading deadwood onto another team can sometimes be more disrespectful than it seems. Adding Tosun and McCarthy clearly does not equal another £35m, and it remains to be seen what Palace will think of this latest offer. If Everton are desperate, the Eagles may hold out for more.

Just, Kos

Paper Round’s view: He has all-but burnt his bridges at Arsenal. Let him go, for the right price, and lead the club forward with a captain who actually wants to play for you.
