Sterling: I'm trying to justify my place with a goal

England goalscorer Raheem Sterling hopes that his winner for the national team will prove he belongs in the starting line-up at Euro 2020.

Sterling was picked as part of Gareth Southgate’s attacking setup, alongside Manchester City teammate Phil Foden and Spurs striker Harry Kane.

The forward has found time on the pitch hard to come by on occasion under Pep Guardiola this season, and there have been suggestions that he will leave City in the summer transfer window, and that other players should be given the nod ahead of him on international duty.

Euro 2020

Southgate: ‘England dealt with the big occasion really well’

41 MINUTES AGO

Speaking to BBC Sport, Sterling said: “It feels good to score. I always said if I played at Wembley at a major tournament I had to score and it’s great to finally do that.

“There’s a lot of different reasons why I haven’t scored for my club and it’s totally irrelevant now. I’m here with England and I’m enjoying my football. That’s the most important thing.

“Have I justified my selection? I’m trying.

“It’s great to get off to a win and now we have other games to look forward to. It’s been a long season for me but I couldn’t wait to get here and get started with England. With England, I knew it would be a positive one. “

‘We have to do better as a society’ – Raheem Sterling on his MBE

Sterling was also full of praise for the rest of his teammates.

“It’s a great feeling. It was the first game and we needed a win. We stuck together. We headed the ball when we needed to, cleared it when we needed to and played some good football at times. I thought the boys were brilliant,” he said.

“To be honest, I always said to myself if I come here, growing up two minutes down the road, I know I have to score here. It was a great feeling to actually do it.

“We need to try to build on it and enjoy today. We have to focus. It’s early days. We need to keep winning, have that winning mentality and keep going forward.”

Barca set for four free transfers

Spanish newspaper Marca reports that there are at least two, and possibly four, transfers set to be confirmed by Barcelona. Sergio Aguero is set to join from Manchester City, alongside young central defender Eric Garcia. If Ronald Koeman stays on as manager then Memphis Depay and Georgini Wijnaldum are also likely to sign.

Paper Round’s view: Aguero is an exceptionally good player and to get him for nothing is a huge deal, but Barcelona’s weaknesses are really at the back and on the wings. Wijnaldum will refresh the middle of the park and Garcia the back, while Lyon’s forward Memphis should be able to hold down a place on either flank.

Hakimi agent denies PSG move

Achraf Hakimi’s agent has played down links for the 22-year-old right-sided player to join Paris Saint-Germain. The Morrocan international has impressed for Inter Milan in their title-winning season and had been linked with a move to France, but his agent said: “Hakimi has four years left in his contract with Inter, and I want to clarify I haven’t talked to any other club.”

Paper Round’s view: Hakimi had looked to be a hugely promising talent in his time at Borussia Dortmund and his switch to Inter Milan has only helped proved his talent. Inter might want to balance the books after Antonio Conte’s heavy spending, and letting him leave would give them the chance of holding onto players like Romelu Lukaku.

Silva set to sign new deal

Chelsea central defender Thiago Silva paid tribute to former manager Frank Lampard after he and his side won the Champions League final against Manchester City on Saturday night, and the Sun reports that he is on the cusp of signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge. The 36-year-old Brazilian has impressed new boss Thomas Tuchel.

Paper Round’s view: Given the potential transfer upheaval that hits Stamford Bridge almost every year it makes sense that they keep hold of Silva given he is still coping well with the strains of top-flight football. There are plenty of top targets on the market this summer so Chelsea may want to keep Thiago for another year and aim their budget elsewhere.

Chelsea could lose Rudiger

Champions League winner Chelsea could see Antonio Rudiger leave on a free transfer after they failed to tie him down to a new contract. There has been interest from Spurs as well as Paris Saint-Germain. The 28-year-old central defender has a year left on his contract and nothing has been agreed between the two parties. The new Champions are planning for next season.

Paper Round’s view: Rudiger has shown at times that he is a reliable defender and his experience should make that a more consistently shown quality. However there is no denying that he has often failed to meet the required performance levels, so perhaps Chelsea are right to be ruthless about cutting him loose in the near future.

Man City and Utd set to battle for Kane after Haaland plans stay – Paper Round

United and City turn to Kane with Haaland likely to stay

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has said he is likely to stay at the Bundesliga club for another season or two, meaning that Manchester United and Manchester City will have to look elsewhere. The 20-year-old Norwegian said: “I have a contract for a couple of fine years, so I am respectful towards my contract,” and the Sun claims the two Premier League sides will now turn to Harry Kane, with City potentially interested in Romelu Lukaku.

Paper Round’s view: Kane could be the difference for City to hold off a renewed title attack from Liverpool next season, and for United it might even transform them into challengers for their first Premier League trophy since Alex Ferguson’s retirement. However Kane is now 27 and provides much less value than Haaland would, so they may be tempted to wait a year to try again.

Manchester United plan clearout

The Mirror reports that there are up to nine players who could leave Manchester United this summer as they make way, and raise funds, for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s transfer targets this summer. Paul Pogba is the obvious option to sell given his contract expires next year, and Nemanja Matic, David de Gea, Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira, Daniel James, Phil Jones, Diogo Dalot, and Tahith Chong could all leave too.

Paper Round’s view: The most important thing for United is to get rid of the mediocrity that has weighed them down for a decade and bring a group of players who actually offer something to lift them towards a title challenge. Of course the Glazers do not want to spend more than strictly necessary so raising money through sales could be the only way for Solskjaer to get his men.

Arsenal want Sterling and Mahrez

The Daily Mail suggests that Pep Guardiola is willing to sell both Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez. The two wingers could be moved on as the Spaniard looks to overhaul his squad this summer. Gabriel Jesus and Aymeric Laporte could also be sold if the right offer comes in. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is believed to be interested in 26-year-old Sterling and Mahrez, 30.

Paper Round’s view: Sterling’s form has not been as impressive as it has been in previous seasons and given Guardiola’s financial backing from his owners he can afford to be ruthless. Mahrez, meanwhile, is now into his thirties and there is a risk that he won’t be able to keep up with the physical demands of playing for Guardiola. It appears City are ready to spend big yet again.

Pochettino won’t be allowed to join Real

Spanish newspaper Marca believes that Paris Saint-Germain will not entertain the departure of Mauricio Pochettino as manager this summer. The Argentine has a year left on his contract and Real Madrid would like him to replace Zinedine Zidane (and Spurs also want him back after Jose Mourinho’s departure). With Real – who have just signed David Alaba – keen to maintain a working relationship with PSG ahead of a potential Kylian Mbappe transfer, they will sit this one out.

Paper Round’s view: Pochettino does not appear content in Paris and is reportedly worried by the influence of Leonardo at the club. He probably felt the PSG job was too big for him to turn down after so long out of the game, and he might be risking another blow to his reputation if he again leaves another club while they have failed to make the most of their potential.

Arsenal target Buendia

The Daily Mail believes that Arsenal are preparing to rebuild this summer by beating Aston Villa to the signature of Norwich City’s playmaker Emiliano Buendia. The 24-year-old Argentine playmaker could be a target for Villa if Jack Grealish does join Manchester City in a £100 million move this summer.

Europa League

Opinion: A Europa League triumph must only be the start for Man Utd

16 HOURS AGO

Paper Round’s view: Grealish is clearly one of the top targets this summer for most of the leading Premier League sides and it would leave a huge hole for Villa to fill. Buendia did OK in his season in the Premier League when Norwich City were relegated, but it would be a gamble to bring him in and expect a great performance.

He won’t leave, you’ll see. “If he leaves, he leaves… but for now I don’t see Real Madrid without Zidane.”

Paper Round’s view: Benzema has enjoyed his best years under Zidane and he understandably does not want him to leave. However it seems that Zidane is ready to take a break after the stresses and strains of managing the biggest club in the world, and Benzema might benefit from taking a move away from the spotlight, especially as Real struggle to refresh.

Spurs set to profit from Edwards move

The Sun claims that former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Marcus Edwards could soon be on the move. The 22-year-old joined Portuguese side Vitoria a few years ago and he is now interesting Sporting Lisbon. While his release clause is around £40 million, he could be sold for about £11 million, of which Spurs would be entitled to half.

Paper Round’s view: Edwards attracted attention from a few English and European sides when he was approaching the end of his time in North London. He has put in the hours in Portugal and a move to Sporting would put him on the radar of Gareth Southgate, and possibly earn him a transfer back to the Premier League in the next year or two.

Paper Round’s view: Another option who could be brought in is Belgium manager Roberto Martinez and really, all the Premier League options are pretty underwhelming. Spurs are hamstrung by their decision to reduce their budget, while Rangnick and Ten Hag have shown their ability to exceed on limited expenditure.

Barcelona ready to sell Griezmann

Spanish newspaper Marca reports that Barcelona will take the drastic step of selling Antoine Griezmann this summer if the right offer comes in, as his wages increase every year of his contract. The 30-year-old French international is respected as a player, but if Lionel Messi leaves then other cuts need to be made. Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo, Matheus Fernandes and Martin Braithwaite are also up for sale.

Paper Round’s view: At 30, Griezmann is probably at his peak now and will be able to offer less and less in each future season. Getting rid of him now would allow Barcelona to balance the books a litte, but another advantage would be that the club could finally start to lower the age of the team after becoming one of the most superannuated line-ups across Europe.

Cavani may not stop Kane move for United

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that Edinson Cavani’s contract extension at Old Trafford does not mean another forward won’t come in this summer. The Mirror reports the Norwegian as saying: “We’re looking to strengthen the squad this summer. Of course there’s many things you have to consider when putting a squad together. I’m not saying if Edi [Cavani] stays that means someone else in a forward position won’t come in.” That means United may still move for Kane, who may also be wanted by Manchester City.

Paper Round’s view: Kane is an exceptional striker but he has played the best part of 500 games and at 27 he is not becoming less injury prone. Some clubs can handle those problems better than others, but it nevertheless represents a huge risk to bring in Kane for a club like United, who generally are awful with their spending, particularly on older players.

Dalot wants to join Milan

One player who is unlikely to be at Manchester United next season is their defender Diogo Dalot. The 22-year-old has impressed on loan at AC Milan this year and he could be sold for around 10 to 15 million euros. One option might be for the Portuguese defender to return to Italy on loan for one more year, the Sun reports, before joining on a permanent deal later.

Paper Round’s view: Dalot was a reasonable player for United but he offered little remarkable throughout his time under Jose Mourinho and then Solskjaer. If he has found his rhythm at Milan then, given the relatively low quality in Italy, then he should try to get more time on the pitch there and try a more demanding league when he has had time to improve his performance level.

Odegaard could stay at Arsenal

The Daily Mail reports that Real Madrid’s on-loan Arsenal playmaker Martin Odegaard would be content to stay in London next season.

I’m owned by Real Madrid, so we have to speak to them. It’s important to understand what they want.”

Paper Round’s view: Odegaard struggled at Real Madrid and he might not be keen to go back to a club that is in a state of upheaval, with no obvious sign of who will replace Zinedine Zidane. However, Arsenal are hardly stable right now and the Danish player might see a chance to return to Spain and impress whomever might come in for next season.

‘Football with fans is everything’- reaction as supporters return for the FA Cup final

There were 21,000 fans inside Wembley Stadium to watch the FA Cup final. And their presence was a welcome one. The match saw Youri Tielemans strike a stunning winner as Leicester City lifted the FA Cup for the first time with a 1-0 win over Chelsea despite unbelievable late VAR drama.

There had been 8,000 fans at the League Cup final between Tottenham and Manchester City in late April but the difference in atmosphere was palpable and those in attendance were the warm recipients of praise.

Guardiola suggests Torres could fill striker role for City

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed he could convert Ferran Torres into a number nine.

With Sergio Aguero departing City at the end of the season, Guardiola is in need of a new attacking option.

The Spaniard has been widely tipped to enter the transfer market, with Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund one possible option, but Torres put forward a strong case with a hat-trick in the 4-3 win over Newcastle.

Barcelona ready to prioritise Haaland ahead of Messi – Paper Round

7 HOURS AGO

His opening goal was an audacious flick after an excellent near-post run, but his second and third efforts were clinical efforts – with the former Valencia man showing the instincts of a striker.

Guardiola has been hugely impressed with the 21-year-old in his first season in the Premier League, and feels he has the potential to fill the striking void should the need arise.

“This evening he was important, but not just this evening,” Guardiola told Sky Sports. “This is his first season in England and his numbers are exceptional in terms of goals.

He came as a winger and I may have to think about playing him as a striker. When we had Sergio and Garbiel [Jesus] injured, he played as a striker and was always there.

“He has a sense of goal and I am very pleased.

“He can be a number nine. We used him this season and he was brilliant. His rhythm, especially offensively, has increased a lot.

“The movements he makes as a striker. The third goal for example, the shot hits the post and the ball is where he is. It is not left, not right, it is where he is.

“It is a sense of goal and strikers know it one second before the ball arrives. He has this talent and is a good finisher.”

Asked if Torres’ potential as a forward would persuade him not to enter the transfer market, Guardiola added: “I don’t know what is going to happen. I said maybe we are going to buy a striker, maybe we don’t. But we have a young guy and we can use him left, right and as a striker.”

Man City step up chase for £60m Portuguese wonderkid – Euro Papers

In the week City were crowned Premier League champions, it was anything but a victory parade on Tyneside.

They were twice behind as Newcastle, freed from the worries of relegation, went toe-to-to with the champions.

Class ultimately told, and the win saw them set a new record. The victory was their 12th on the spin away from home in the league, and no other side has hit that figure since the formation of the Football League in 1888.

It was also City’s 23rd game on the road without defeat in all competitions, taking them past Notts County’s unbeaten run in 2012.

“It is good the fact we won 12 times in a row,” Guardiola said. “No side before could do it, so we are happy for that.

“It is what we have done, four years together. When people say you don’t win the Champions League the team is a failure, or the players are a failure or the manager is a failure, football is consistent.

“The important is you win the Premier League. You have to celebrate, one day train and come here but the spirit was there.”

If they can cut the fat elsewhere in the squad, they may be able to justify the expenditure.

Mikel Arteta could be interested in Joachim Andersen, the Lyon defender who is on loan at Premier League club Fulham, but Spurs are ahead of them in the race for the 24-year-old Dane.

Paper Round’s view: Luiz has hardly been a disaster for Arsenal but he did not exceed expectations: he made mistakes but he was also pretty capable over the course of two seasons. It makes sense though that Arteta wants to do better than Luiz, and Andersen has the promise and potential to become one of the best defenders in the league, Lyon are likely to be ready to sell.

Milan want Brahim stay

Serie A side AC Milan are looking to extend the stay of Brahim Diaz at the club. The 21-year-old Spanish playmaker has four goals and four assists with his loan club this season, and his parent side are unwilling to let him go out permanently, reports Spanish newspaper Marca. However Milan would also like to take him on a further loan for next season.

Paper Round’s view: Brahim has started his career with Real Madrid slowly since his arrival from Manchester City, but it seems he has found it hard to force his way through into the first team under Zinedine Zidane. He clearly has talent, so a compromise for player and both clubs would be to let him stay where he is for now and develop his talent so Zidane has little choice but to use him more regularly.

Paper Round’s view: West Ham are fortunate to be in London and able to cast their net relatively wide to go through much of the best talent in the south east. If Clarke really is as good as Antonio, then he could help the club with a player who could contribute for a decade. David Moyes could well be given the chance to spend big this summer after an impressive showing.

Buffon the latest Barca free transfer

Barcelona are drawing up quite the list of free transfers to make this summer, according to the Mirror. Ronald Koeman is on a limited budget but he only wants high quality players. He is aiming for Eric Garcia and Sergio Aguero from Manchester City, fellow Dutchmen Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum, and the latest under consideration is Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Paper Round’s view: At 43, Buffon can’t go on forever but evidently his professionalism has carried him into his fifth decade, and his fourth in top-flight football. With Marc-Andre Ter Stegen in command of the first-choice goalkeeper spot, it would be useful for Barcelona to be able to give him a rest while making little compromise on the quality he would bring to the side.

The 25-year-old Brazilian international was born in Belgium so has links to the country, and said he would consider Club Brugge as well as Anderlecht. The midfielder is currently on loan with Lazio, his third loan spell from Manchester United, as he looks to find regular football.

Paper Round’s view: Pereira emerged at United as a player with impressive technique and seemed capable from set pieces, but apart from that he has struggled to really kick on. That might be because he was rarely given regular starts by any manager at United, but given he has failed to really impress at Lazio, Valencia and Granada, it is worth considering that Anderlecht would be about his level.

Silva set for PSG contract extension

The Daily Star reports that Chelsea’s 36-year-old central defender Thiago Silva could be in line for an extra year at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel.

Chelsea could also extend the contracts of midfielders N’Golo Kante and Jorginho – despite his error against Arsenal.

Paper Round’s view: Thomas Tuchel has made Chelsea solid at the back and he is familiar with Thiago Silva from the pair’s time at Paris Saint-Germain. It makes sense to keep him on to help the younger players develop around him, and if Fikayo Tomori is coming back permanently, then he would be able to learn from one of the best central defenders around.
