Manchester City v Borussia Dortmund – UEFA Champions League – Group G – Etihad Stadium

What the newspapers say

Manchester United may have gained an advantage in the race to sign the Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, reports the Daily Express, citing The Athletic. According to the newspaper, United have closely followed the development of the 19-year-old England international and have even bonded with his family in a bid to beat Liverpool to his signature.

The Sun reports, via Calciomercato, that the Juventus midfielder Manuel Locatelli has been linked with a move to Arsenal. The 24-year-old failed to impress the boss Massimiliano Allegri since a £30million move from Sassuolo.

The same newspaper writes, citing Bild, that Arsenal have also made contact with Eintracht Frankfurt over the winger Jesper Lindstrom. The 22-year-old helped the Bundesliga outfit win the Europa League last season, earning him a Champions League spot for this campaign.
