09:45 UPDATE: Jose Mourinho Man Utd dig

Jose Mourinho has aimed a sly dig at Manchester United and chief Ed Woodward by admitting he would have liked similar backing to that of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp at Manchester City and Liverpool.

“I would love to go to a club and be in conditions to do what Jurgen and Pep did,” Mourinho told beIN Sports.

“And when Pep was not happy with the full-backs he had [at City in 2016-17] and in the [next] summer bought four [three] full-backs that he liked.

“When he bought one goalkeeper like Claudio Bravo and was not happy with Claudio Bravo, the next season he bought Ederson.

“When Jurgen is in the club and wins absolutely nothing for three-and-a-half years and he still has the trust, still has the confidence, still has the conditions to try to keep going and going.”

09:20 UPDATE: Ozil confirms plans

Mesut Ozil insists he is happy at Arsenal and says he has no issues with manager Unai Emery despite being frozen out at times this season.

Absolutely. I’ve got two more years on my contract,” he told Sky Sports when asked if he wants to stay.

“I don’t know after that but I’ve got two years left.”

Asked if he was happy, the German added: Yes. Why not? 

“I’m 30 now, still got years in front of me, it’s down to the club as well of course, but I’ve got two years here – after that I don’t know what happens.

08:25 UPDATE: Liverpool to sign three

Liverpool hero Mark Lawrenson reckons Jurgen Klopp will sign three players this summer.

“I don’t think you can say that any team is lacking in areas if they get 97 points. They have over-performed,” he told Goal.

“They might need another left-back to cover Andy Robertson, they are alright at centre-back, they are alright at right-back. Maybe a bit more of an attacking midfield player, or a No. 10.

“I don’t think he will sign many players. I wouldn’t expect more than two or three maximum.

“We have also seen with Klopp that he will wait until the right player is available. He just doesn’t like getting players for the sake of it.

“Recruitment now is massive at this level and his recruitment of players has been outstanding.”

08:00 UPDATE: Hazard told to leave Chelsea

Eden Hazard should LEAVE Chelsea because he deserves a move to Real Madrid, Glenn Hoddle claims.

“I think Chelsea will get into the Champions League, whether Hazard will be there with them,” Hoddle told TSN.

“I feel it might be the right time for him personally, not for Chelsea or the Premier League, but for him to go to Real Madrid if that offer is there on the table for him.

“He deserves to play in that team. They’ve got a re-build going on as well.

“I personally would love to see him play in the Premier League but I’ve got a feeling he might move.

“Chelsea, at the moment, there’s something missing but without Hazard in the team and all the hope [goes].”

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is desperate to sign a new centre-half this summer.

Zouma has impressed on loan at Everton this season, however, whether he’s in Chelsea’s plans remains to be seen.

Emery will have a transfer budget of around £40m if Arsenal fail to qualify for the Champions League.
