Manchester United have decided Mauricio Pochettino is the man they want to replace Jose Mourinho and are willing to pay £40 million ($51m) to land him, The Sun claims.

The France international continues to be linked with a return to Turin, with those in Italy admitting to still being an admirer of a former star
Juventus continue to keep rumours regarding a possible return to the club for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba ticking over, with sporting director Fabio Paratici admitting to being “fond of” the Frenchman.

The Bianconeri saw a popular figure head for the exits in Turin during the summer of 2016 as a record-breaking £89 million ($114m) transfer package was put in place.

That deal took Pogba back to England for a second spell at Old Trafford, but the World Cup winner has not enjoyed the easiest of times in the Premier League and is considered to be mulling over another retracing of his steps.

Paratici is the latest to have been quizzed on Pogba, with Sky Sport Italia told: “A return? We have already discussed this many times. He's a great player we've had before and are fond of, but now he plays for Manchester United.”

While refusing to rule a move in or out, with Pogba tied to a lucrative contract at a European rival, Juve are starting to piece together recruitment plans.

Goal revealed recently that Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic is among those on their radar, but he is one of several options being considered.

The reigning Serie A champions are aware of the need to continuously freshen up their ranks, with the club’s board working hard to identify suitable targets.

Paratici added: “We are the exploring the market, the president and Pavel Nedved, with the help of the coach [Massimiliano] Allegri.

“To improve the team we are always careful. We still have great players and we enjoy them. It will not be easy to always have so many strong ones.”

Juve, who added five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo to their ranks over the summer, have already opened up an eight-point lead at the top of the Serie A table this season after going unbeaten through 14 games.

The midfielder is yet to play a single minute in La Liga this season and has made just two competitive appearances so far for the Blaugrana
Denis Suarez is determined to stay and fight for a place at Barcelona, despite interest from Chelsea in the Premier League.

Suarez, 24, has been surplus to requirements for the Catalans since the start of the 2018-19 season.

Having made 27 appearances in all competitions last term, the former Villarreal man has been restricted to just two so far this campaign, as the arrivals of Arthur and Arturo Vidal have added further competition in the Barca engine room. The situation has led to understandable frustration from the player, who  Goal  understands had been promised a bigger role in the first team by coach Ernesto Valverde at the end of 2017-18.

But the same sources consulted by Goal   assure that he is still convinced he can make it at Camp Nou, despite failing to make a single Liga appearance in the season to date.

Denis had the chance to pursue his career elsewhere over the summer.

Maurizio Sarri, a confirmed admirer of the midfielder since his tenure at Napoli, pushed Chelsea to make overtures which ultimately proved unsuccessful.

An unfortunate injury pre-season, however, left the player lacking match fitness and form when the campaign got underway, while young Brazilian Arthur jumped at the chance to establish himself instantly in Valverde's starting line-up.Denis is considered a further attacking alternative at Barca, placing him in competition also with Malcom and Munir, two other squad members who have been used sparingly.

Even that pair have seen more game time than the Spaniard, however, leading to no little consternation despite Valverde's assurances that "everyone might have a chance over the course of the season."

But he will not be rushed into a decision. Suarez has a year and a half left on his contract and intends to see it out until the end, less as a challenge to Valverde but rather a show he is determined to succeed at Barca.

If Valverde choose to leave at the end of the season, he will have a new chance to impress and prove he is good enough to star at the Blaugrana.

Nigeria’s Super Falcons have defeated South Africa to win the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations title.

The Super Falcons overcame the South Africans in penalties after both sides failed to score in regulation time.

This is Nigeria’s ninth Africa Women’s Cup of Nations title, consolidating their place as the most successful team in the tournament.

Saturday’s final was arguably the toughest the Falcons have played with the South African’s putting up a brave fight.

As the first 90 minutes ran down with both sides failing to find the target, Nigeria was presented with a solid opportunity to take the lead when Francisca Ordega was brought down in the box and the referee awarded Nigeria a penalty.

The joy that came with the sight of the referee pointing to the spot, faded shortly after as Asisat Oshoala, failed to convert the penalty.

Even though both sides created chances, their failure to make them count meant that after 120 minutes, fans had to endure a tense shootout.

After Onome Ebi missed Nigeria’s first penalty in the shootout, it seemed like it wasn’t going to be the Falcon’s day. They will, however, score their next four penalties, with South Africa failing twice, thanks to the heroics of Super Falcons keeper, Tochukwu Oluehi.
