Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer says the club are still in talks with Serge Gnabry over a new contract.
The German international is entering the final year of his deal and has been linked with Liverpool, as well as former club Arsenal, with Bayern expected to sell this summer if they cannot convince the winger to pen a new deal.

Man United want Eriksen
The Mirror are reporting that Manchester United have entered the race to sign Christian Eriksen this summer.

PSG consider Jose Mourinho approach
According to the Daily Telegraph, PSG are considering a shock move for Jose Mourinho.
Thought to be done at the top level, Mourinho could replace Mauricio Pochettino, just as he did at Tottenham.
