Alexis Sanchez, Mario Balotelli and Romelu Lukaku are being talked about in Thursday’s papers.


What the papers say

Alexis Sanchez is refusing to leave Manchester United, despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer threatening to drop him to the reserves if he stays, and Roma are now looking at other targets, The Sun reports.

Italy striker Mario Balotelli is set to sign a three-year deal with Serie A side Brescia after rejecting an offer from Brazilian side Flamengo, according to The Guardian.

Everton and Nigeria winger Alex Iwobi says he left Arsenal on deadline day to prove he is no longer just an emerging talent, according to The Mirror.  Iwobi  moved to Goodison Park on a five-year deal worth £35million.

In other Red Devils news, the Mail says United decided against signing Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes after their scouts warned he takes too many risks in possession.

The Mirror reports that Roberto Martinez says Romelu Lukaku’s move to Inter Milan was necessary for “fresh air”
