    VARANE RETURNS

    Raphael Varane is set to return to Real Madrid despite being linked with Manchester United.

    That is according to Marca, who claim Varane will rejoin Real's training complex this week for pre-season.

    However, it seems highly likely that the defender has played his last game for Los Blancos.

    The France international is still keen to join United, who have made immense progress in their bid to sign the 28-year-old

    YOU KANE DO THAT

    Harry Kane would “tarnish” his reputation if he refused to link up with Tottenham in pre-season training.

    That is according to Former Crystal Palace player Darren Ambrose, who responded to a recent report suggesting that Kane’s team-mates are worried that the star striker won’t join them in a bid to force a move away.

    Ambrose told talkSPORT: “You should always return, you’re under contract.

    “A gentleman’s agreement means nothing, absolutely nothing – particularly if Daniel Levy is like we know he is, he’s notoriously hard to deal with. He’d have said everything to get Kane to sign the contract initially.

    “He’s Tottenham’s main man and idolised by the supporters. I think he’ll tarnish any reputation and anything he brings to Tottenham by doing this.

    “He’s the England captain as well. I honestly can’t see him not turning up. I don’t know him personally but he seems like such a professional guy.

    “If he refused and Daniel Levy doesn’t get the offer or money that he wants, he could just say: ‘Don’t come back in then’"

    MANCHESTER TRIP

    Manchester United target Kieran Trippier is in talks to buy England team-mate Raheem Sterling's £3million mansion.

    The five-bedroom 7,500-square foot home is nestled in a quiet Cheshire hamlet close to Knutsford and surrounded by farmland.

    The full-back has been linked with a move to United in the summer and he appears to be quite keen on a return to the Premier League.

    A source said: “Kieran wants to move back to the UK from Spain and if the deal to Old Trafford goes through he will need to act fast.

    “He and Raheem have spoken about the property. If Raheem departs at the same time it makes perfect sense to sell it on quickly — and privately — to Kieran”

    “There’s nothing better than seeing players willing to fight for their place. Of course, what he did towards the end of the season, that is the true Jesse.

    “That’s what we know he is capable of. I think we saw towards the end [of our own season] that we lacked maybe some options at times.”

    LUKE AT THEM

    Manchester United fans hailed 'agent' Luke Shaw after striking up a bromance with Declan Rice, writes JOSHUA JONES

    The England pair are on holiday together in Mykonos after starring at Euro 2020.

    They have been letting their hair down on the Greek island in the week after their final heartbreak against Italy, going out for food and enjoying the swimming pool with ocean views. 

    Fellow England heroes Kyle Walker, Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell, Jack Grealish, Kalvin Philips and Ben White are there too – as is snooker hero Judd Trump.

    The Manchester City right-back was filmed belting out a rendition of Sweet Caroline as they dined out at a restaurant. 

    But Red Devils supporters' eyes were drawn to Shaw and Rice hanging out together – in the hope the left-back can convince the West Ham ace to join him at Old Trafford this summer. 

    After seeing the pair shine on the same side at the Euros, United fans will be dreaming of them doing the same under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

    One said: "Agent Shaw working on Rice."
