Shin to fly in
Shinji Kagawa is set to jet into England today ready for a medical at Manchester United. Borussia Dortumund’s Japanese ace has agreed to a move that could be worth up to £17million — but still needs a work permit.
The Daily Mail claims Real Madrid will beat United to securing the signature of Tottenham's Luka Modric with a £30million bid for the midfielder.
In other news, most of the papers run quotes from Wayne Rooney who insists England can beat Italy in Sunday's Euro 2012 quarter-final. “It’s important that we believe in ourselves. We have a great group of players and we’re confident. It’s not going to be an easy game but we have the players, we have the belief and we have the togetherness to do a job on them," said Wayne.
