TOP STORY: Options running out for De Gea

Will David De Gea leave Manchester United? It's a question that surfaces annually, and every August he trots out at Old Trafford.

Last year, Spain was his likely destination, and this summer it seemed he was destined to be heading to Paris. Now, with just a year left on his United contract, it's looking increasingly likely that he won't be playing his football anywhere other than Manchester United when the season kicks off in August.

The Sun reports that newly appointed sporting director Leonardo is intent on recruiting Gianluigi Donnarumma as Paris Saint-Germain's No. 1, leaving De Gea with nowhere to go. Again.

The Italian, who is currently at AC Milan, is the youngest goalkeeper to ever debut for Italy and, at the age of 20, PSG believe he very much represents the future.

De Gea, meanwhile, is closing in on 30 -- which makes him the opposite. Although that won't stop the speculation swirling as he enters the final year of his deal at Old Trafford.

Barca fail in De Ligt pursuit

Ajax's prodigiously gifted skipper Matthijs de Ligt is set to turn his back on a switch to Barcelona, Marca quotes Cadena SER as reporting.

- When does the transfer window close?
- Pogba wants out. How should Man United respond?
- Transfer hot list: Five players every club wants
- Ogden: Liverpool De Ligt's best option; expect him to join PSG

Cadena SER programme "El Larguero" has reported that the Dutch star will walk away from a move to the Camp Nou, despite the two clubs agreeing a €75 million deal for a defender just about every team in Europe would like to sign before the summer is out.

De Ligt was sensational as Ajax reached the semifinals of the Champions League and was similarly impressive in the Nations League as the Dutch dispatched England 2-1 in the semifinals of that tournament earlier this month.

"El Larguero" claims that Mino Raiola, the player's agent, has played a key role in him rejecting Barcelona's advances. All of which represents pretty seismic news in a transfer window in which De Ligt has loomed large.

So where will he end up? Watch this space.

Madrid tempt Spurs with Ceballos

Tottenham might want him to remain at their swanky new home, but Real Madrid are still pulling out all the stops to tempt Christian Eriksen to the Bernabeu. So says the Sun, which reports that the Spanish giants are prepared to hand Spurs £45m to take Eriksen to the capital -- and will throw in Dani Ceballos as a sweetener.

Eriksen's future has been the subject of intense speculation for almost 12 months, and Zinedine Zidane has added the Tottenham midfielder to a shopping list that is the envy of Europe. Zidane has already succeeded in bringing Eden Hazard from Chelsea, but he has no intention of stopping there as he looks to reverse his club's slump in fortunes.

Ceballos, meanwhile, has told Zidane that he wants to leave the club sooner rather than later after finding it difficult to break into Los Blancos' first team. And that won't be what any Spurs fan wants to hear.

Tap-ins

- The Mail reports that Everton are close to agreeing a deal with Barcelona that would see Andre Gomes make his season-long loan on Merseyside a permanent switch.

- And finally, Phil Jones could be frozen out at Manchester United. The Sun writes that Jones was offered to West Ham as part of the club's attempts to snap up Issa Diop from the Hammers. The East Londoners apparently had no interest in signing Jones, which doesn't bode well for his future at Old Trafford, despite the centre-back signing a new deal in February that keeps him at the club until 2023.
