Chelsea are looking forward to the Champions League final – and reportedly eyeing a huge £80m swoop for in-demand England ace Jadon Sancho.

And French superstar Kylian Mbappe could be on the move to the Spanish capital this summer, with reports suggesting he has an 'agreement' to join Los Blancos.

    IT S-AINT A NO

    Danny Ings has refused to rule out a shock transfer to Manchester United or City.

    The Southampton striker is a target for both clubs after impressing with 12 Premier League goals in an injury-hit season.

    He told talkSPORT: "I’ve got a contract until the summer of 2022. I haven’t really acknowledged them [transfer rumours].

    “I’ve just been focused on each game. Ultimately, I’ve still got a contract here. My main focus is to finish the season strong."

    ARTETA ON KROENKE

    Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta couldn’t lead the club to next season’s European competitions.

    The Gunners endured a turbulent campaign that saw the fans clashing with the Kroenke family after the European Super League fiasco.

    Arteta, however, defended Josh Kroenke and claimed he “wants to take the club to a different level”.

    The Arsenal boss said: “He’s very supportive, very passionate about the club and he wants to take the club to a different level. That’s the ambition and that’s why he’s here”

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Jordan Henderson reveals he expects to be fit to lead England at next month’s European Championships.

    The Liverpool captain has not played since the Merseyside Derby in February due to a groin injury that required surgery.

    Hendo said: “I was itching to get on. But I have only trained a few times with the team so it wasn’t the wisest thing to do!

    “I feel good. I have been training the last few weeks on my own.

    “Now I need team training and hopefully I can be fit for the Euros. Fingers crossed. That is my target.

    “I have been working hard in the background. I feel good but I have to go and train with England and be ready for the Euros.”

    Meanwhile Andrea Pirlo sparked Cristiano Ronaldo exit rumours after dropping him for Juventus’ clash with Bologna.

    The Old Lady headed into the away fixture needing to win to stand a chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

    In what is undoubtedly one of the biggest games in Pirlo’s reign, he sensationally left Ronaldo on the substitute bench.

    And Chelsea could look to steal Jadon Sancho from under the noses of Manchester United.

    According to the Daily Mirror, however, the Blues are looking to test the waters with a bid in the region of £80million.

    The star winger made a “gentlemen’s agreement” with Dortmund that he will be allowed to leave in the summer if an interested party meets certain demands.

    LILLE MIX

    Lille completed an incredible Ligue 1 title win on Sunday as they held off a final day challenge from moneybags Paris Saint-Germain.

    Mauricio Pochettino’s men beat Brest 2-0 thanks to an own-goal from Romain Faivre and a Kylian Mbappe strike.

    But PSG’s victory meant little as Lille beat Angers 2-1, finishing top of Ligue 1 by a single point.

    Canadian striker Jonathan David got the party started for Lille after just ten minutes.

    And Burak Yilmaz’s penalty had his side looking comfortable before half-time.

    A late strike from Angelo Fulgini gave Lille a scare.

    But they rode out the last few minutes to clinch title glory.

    Lille have now won their first Ligue 1 trophy since the 2010/11 season, when a young Eden Hazard propelled them to victory.

    HEN DO

    Jordan Henderson expects to be fit to lead England at next month's European Championships.

    The Liverpool captain has not played since the Merseyside Derby in February due to a groin injury that required surgery.

    The 30-year-old was an unused substitute against Crystal Palace on the final day of the season but he is confident he can play for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions at the Euros.

    Hendo said: “I was itching to get on. But I have only trained a few times with the team so it wasn’t the wisest thing to do!

    “I feel good. I have been training the last few weeks on my own.

    “Now I need team training and hopefully I can be fit for the Euros. Fingers crossed. That is my target.

    “I have been working hard in the background. I feel good but I have to go and train with England and be ready for the Euros.”

    PIRL OF WISDOM

    Andrea Pirlo has fuelled Cristiano Ronaldo exit rumours after dropping him for Juventus' clash with Bologna.

    The Old Lady headed into the away fixture needing to win to stand a chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

    In what is undoubtedly one of the biggest games in Pirlo's reign, he sensationally left Ronaldo on the substitute bench.

    The Portuguese ace is the league's top scorer with 29 goals.

    But his exclusion, just four days after winning the Coppa Italia, will raise huge doubts over his future.

    Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Ronaldo is not injured and it is a 'technical decision' made by Pirlo.

    It is only the fifth time in three seasons as a Juventus player that Ronaldo has been benched.

    Manchester City raised the Premier League trophy at the Etihad a few weeks after sealing the title.

    This marks City manager Pep Guardiola's third league trophy in all of his five years at the Etihad.

    This is also Sergio Aguero's last ever Prem trophy after 10 years of incredible service that saw him becoming the club's all-time leading goalscorer.

    PEP TALK

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola couldn't hold back his tears when discussing Sergio Aguero's impact in the club.

    Aguero is set to leave City at the end of the season following 10 years of impeccable service, which saw him becoming the club's record goalscorer.

    Guardiola said: "We love him so much.

    "He’s a special person for all of us. He’s so nice, so nice. He helped me a lot. We cannot replace him, we cannot.

    "There are many players that this club have had – David Silva helped this club to be what it is. He showed his quality in 20 minutes"

    SANCHO STEAL

    Chelsea are planning a steal for Borussia Dortmund star winger Jadon Sancho ahead of the summer transfer window.

    Sancho has been linked with a move to Manchester United ever since last year when he came close to moving to Old Trafford.

    So far, no official bid has been made for the England international, who is expected to compete in the delayed Euro 2020 competition.

    According to the Daily Mirror, however, the Blues are looking to test the waters with an offer in the region of £80million.

    The 21-year-old made a “gentlemen’s agreement” with Dortmund that he will be allowed to leave in the summer if an interested party meets certain demands

    KROENKE OUT

    That’s what a section of returning Arsenal fans chanted at the Emirates during Arsenal’s win over Brighton after the European Super League fiasco.

    Supporters held signs demanding the Kroenke family’s departure from the club and some even threw balloons with the same message on the pitch.

    Gunners boss Mikel Arteta, however, is pleased to have the fans back in the stands regardless of the circumstances.

    Arteta said: “Well happy with the performance the result, but most importantly having our fans back again.

    “Thanks so much to them on behalf of myself the staff and all the players”

    Tottenham star Kane finishes the season as the top flight’s leading goalscorer and best playmaker.

    TOP FOUR DRAMA

    The drama levels have reached maximum point in the Premier League's final day.

    Chelsea have returned to fourth place even though they're losing 2-1 to Aston Villa, who have scored two goals with Bertrand Traore and Anwar El Ghazi.

    However, Ben Chilwell got one back in and the Blues are chasing for an equaliser.

    Leicester fell off the top four after Kasper Schmeichel's own goal made it 2-2 against Tottenham at the King Power Stadium.

    Meanwhile, Liverpool have climbed up to third place as they are beating Crystal Palace 2-0 at Anfield

    ARSENAL 1-0 BRIGHTON

    Arsenal lead against Brighton at the Emirates and still have hopes of making it to Europe against all odds.

    The Gunners made the breakthrough after 49 minutes with Nicolas Pepe.

    Pepe controlled a beautiful cross from Calum Chambers and smashed the ball past Robert Sanchez.

    This is the winger’s third goal in his last two games and it puts the north Londoners up to seventh – into the Europa Conference League – as it stands

    GOALS, GOALS, GOALS

    The Premier League's final day has reached half-time with plenty of goals already scored.

    Aston Villa lead 1-0 against Chelsea, thanks to former Blues ace Bertrand Traore's opener.

    This is great news for Liverpool who are also 1-0 ahead against Crystal Palace with Sadio Mane's goal.

    Leicester will also be pleased to hear this but they are tied 1-1 with Tottenham, who cancelled out Jamie Vardy's opener with Harry Kane's equaliser.

    Leeds are 2-0 ahead against West Brom and so are West Ham, who are facing Southampton at the London Stadium.

    Premier League champions Manchester City lead against Everton with goals by Kevin de Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus.

    Manchester United are 2-1 up at Wolves thanks to Anthony Elanga's header and Juan Mata's penalty – Nelson Semedo temporarily equalised.

    Newcastle lead 1-0 at Fulham, same as Sheffield United who take on Burnley.

    Arsenal and Brighton are the only ones who are still goalless

    WOLVES 0-1 MAN UTD

    Daniel James crossed the ball from the left and Elanga headed it past Rui Patricio after 13 minutes.

    So far, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s young team has exposed various weaknesses in Wolves’ defence

    TAKING A SU-IPE

    Luis Suarez hit out at Barcelona for "underestimating and undervaluing" him after an emotional LaLiga triumph.

    He told La Liga TV: "What I experienced was difficult. Barcelona didn’t value me, they underestimated me and Atletico opened the doors for me.

    "I will always be grateful to this great club for trusting me.

    "My wife, my children, they all suffered. I have been playing football for so many years and they never suffered so much.

    "It is an amazing feeling to perform in the final game of the season.

    "My work is to help the team and pay them back by scoring goals.

    "Atletico is a huge club and we have shown it this season. We have been the most consistent performers and that is why we are champions."

    CAM ON IN

    Newcastle are preparing a summer transfer swoop for Cameron Carter-Vickers after his impressive loan spell at Bournemouth.

    The defender made 26 appearances for the Cherries in the Championship this term having joined from Tottenham 12 months ago.

    But after Bournemouth’s promotion push was ended by Brentford in the play-offs yesterday, the USA international’s future remains uncertain.

    Bournemouth want him to stay at the club next season and are ready to make an offer to sign him permanently.

    However, SBI Soccer claims Newcastle are also in the hunt for his signature.

    They are allegedly willing to meet the £10million valuation placed on Carter-Vickers’ head by Spurs.

    And it is not only a straight two-way tussle between them two.

    The report also states that Belgian big boys Anderlecht want to sign Carter-Vickers.

    S-MART MOVE

    Exclusive by Alan Nixon: Martin O'Neil wants to return to management in England this summer at the age of 69.

    The legendary Celtic gaffer is hopeful his CV is still fresh in the memory after two years out of the game.

    The ex-Leicester, Aston Villa and Ireland chief spent a short spell at Nottingham Forest before his break.

    Now O'Neill is actively looking for a post and is also formulating a new-look backroom staff.

    BERT BATTLE

    Leicester are attempting to beat Arsenal in the transfer chase for Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand.

    The left-back has confirmed he will be leaving St Mary's once his contract expires on June 30 and a raft of clubs have reportedly shown interest.

    And the Gunners have been long-term admirers with manager Mikel Arteta desperate to bring him to North London.

    Now a fresh report states Arsenal’s hopes could be about to suffer a blow.

    TalkSPORT claim that Leicester have drawn-up a one-year contract and are preparing to offer it to Bertrand.

    He will be offered a deal to join the FA Cup winners over the coming days.

    AHEAD OF THE PACK

    Manchester City have reportedly already made an enquiry for Harry Kane – way back in January.

    The 27-year-old striker wants to leave Tottenham this summer after another disappointing campaign for the North London side.

    City are leading the race to sign the striker, and the Etihad is believed to be Kane’s preferred destination.

    Chelsea and Manchester United are also in the chase for the England superstar.

    However, the Daily Star has now claimed Pep Guardiola’s side contacted Spurs back in the winter transfer window over a potential move.

    They were told to forget about it – but it looks as if that enquiry set the wheels in motion for him to go public with his desire to depart.

    A BIT TUCH-Y

    Thomas Tuchel is hoping to deliver a second Champions League trophy to Chelsea after likening their first to a 'burglary'.

    In 2012, the Blues beat Bayern Munich on penalties despite being dominated by the Germans over 120 minutes.

    Speaking ahead of the final day of the Premier League season, the 47-year-old recalled: "I think I was in Munich at home and watched it on TV.

    "Let’s say it was not absolutely well deserved.

    "It felt more like a burglary."

    EU BEAUTY

    Exclusive by Gary Stonehouse: Manchester United will pick up an average of £75,000 a man if they win the Europa League final on Wednesday.

    It is understood Old Trafford chiefs have set aside a pool of around £4million.

    And that will be handed to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and his backroom staff if they beat Villarreal.

    Some players, like midfielder Paul Pogba, will get closer to six figures for European glory against the Spanish side.

    Once TV money comes in, United could bank £90m from their run.

    They have landed £12m just for reaching the final.

    GONE TOO SOON

    Atletico Madrid celebrations of their eleventh La Liga title were marred by the death of a teenage fan.

    A 14-year-old boy tragically lost his life on Saturday night after hitting his head on a wall while hanging out of a moving van.

    The teenager – who was travelling with family and friends at the time – subsequently suffered a cardiac arrest.

    Despite the emergency services' best efforts to revive the boy, he sadly passed away an hour after the incident.

    The tragedy is being investigated by Madrid's Municipal Police.

    Atletico released a statement on the heartbreaking incident via their official Twitter account.

    They tweeted: "Dismayed by the sad news of the death of a young athletic man.

    "We send all our encouragement to the family in these moments of pain."
