What the newspapers say
Leicester City ‘at the box office’ anticipate cost of sacking Brendan Rodgers, after the club suffered their sixth consecutive defeat, which plunged them to last place in the Premier League, according to The Sun. The 49-year-old is one of the highest paid managers in Britain and it would cost Leicester over £10million in severance pay to get rid of him.
Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard was tempted to leave the German club during the summer transfer window, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris St-Germain, Atletico Madrid and Juventus all reportedly keen on the 26-year-old right-back. While the French player has not confirmed which clubs are jostling for him, the Evening Standard writes so via Telefoot Eric ten Hag was anxious to get him to Old Trafford.
The same newspaper states that RB Salzburg insisted that Christopher friend will not leave her despite reports that Chelsea are close to appointing him as their new sporting director. The co-owners of the west London club Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali Discussions were held with the 45-year-old and an oral agreement is said to have been reached.
And the Daily Mirror claims Bayern Munich have a “secret” sacking clause for their young embattled manager Julian Nagelsman after that the club went four games without a win. As pressure mounts over the 35-year-old’s future, the availability of Thomas Tuchel allegedly “kept stirring in the pot”.
