Manchester United make final offer for Griezmann, Chelsea line Lampard as Sarri's replacement

Manchester United will bid for Antoine Griezmann, Juventus want Maurizio Sarri, Frank Lampard and may return to Chelsea.

United to make final Griezmann offer 
The Sun believes that Manchesster United will make one more attempt to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. Barcelona are dragging their heels over a move and that means that Ed Woodward can move in with an offer of £95 million. There is also competition from Paris Saint-Germain, meaning United will have to hope that meeting the 28-year-old French international’s wage demands of £450,000 will have to be enough to compensate for their lack of Champions League football. 

Chelsea hold onto Sarri... 
Chelsea are making life tough for Juventus, reports the Daily Mail, as they refuse to let Maurizio Sarri leave for nothing. The Italian has two years left on his current contract, but wants to leave to join the current Serie A champions. However, Chelsea are refusing to give him up without compensation, and are in no mood to roll over.

... As Lampard lined up as replacement 
The Telegraph carries a story that suggests that when the situation with Sarri is finally resolved then Chelsea will turn to Frank Lampard to be his replacement. Lampard has done an impressive job with Derby County this season, but there may not be the funds to convince him to stay in the Championship. Practical alternatives to Lampard are Wolves’ Nuno and Laurent Blanc, the former France manager. 

Arsenal in talks with Saliba

The Express believes that Arsenal are in advanced talks for St Etienne central defender William Saliba. There is a problem, though: the 18-year-old player is rated at £26 million, and his club would like to keep him on loan for a further season. If a move went through on those terms, then Unai Emery would have to wait another year for a player, and have just £14 million left for the rest of his transfer window.
