    REAL BLOW

    Everton stars Richarlison and James Rodriguez could leave Everton this summer, according to reports.

    The pair are believed to be in 'complete shock' over manager Carlo Ancelotti's decision to join Real Madrid.

    According to The Atheltic, Richarlison and Rodriguez are now considering their futures following Ancelotti's departure.

    The Italian coach has agreed to re-join Real – the club he guided to Champions League glory in 2014 – in a shock move.

    Many believed the Italian boss was on the verge of creating something special at Goodison Park after guiding the Toffees to tenth in the Premier League.

    But his exit – plus the impending departures of 13 players placed on the Premier League's released list – indicates the Liverpool-based club are set for another transitional period.

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can splash £140million on new players this summer – while Thomas Tuchel celebrated his new Chelsea contract by vowing to IMPROVE their Champions League-winning squad.

    United's executive co-chairman Joel Glazer said: “We will invest in our academy and the transfer market to support the manager in an effort to meet the club’s goals.”

    He made it clear Solskjaer has a big transfer kitty – with Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho still a possible target.

    And he also revealed significant plans to upgrade Old Trafford, as well as their training ground.

    Tuchel, meanwhile, is being rewarded with a two-year extension and a pay rise on his existing £7m-a-year salary.

    He said: “I cannot imagine a better occasion for a contract renewal.

    “There is far more to come and we are looking forward to our next steps with ambition and much anticipation.”

    Up to seven players could be leaving Manchester City, with midfielder Fernandinho on the list.

    MAGUIRE REVEALS INJURY AGONY

    Maguire, 28, said: “Myself and the United team had a really bad start. We did not get a good pre-season and started the season really slowly but we soon improved.

    “At the time of the injury, I had been playing the best football of my career.

    “I had been really happy with my game for a few months. I was playing with a lot of confidence and belief.

    “My fitness levels before the injury were really good. I was playing week in, week out and that had put me in a really good place in terms of my defending and when I had possession.

    “I have to remember that feeling when I was playing well and must work hard to be fit and be ready to go again and continue where I left off.”

    MAGUIRE: I WAS IN FORM OF MY LIFE

    Harry Maguire says missing Manchester United’s run-in was even tougher to take because he was in the form of his life.

    The Old Trafford skipper is fighting to be fit for England at the Euros but is certain to miss the opener against Croatia on June 13.

    Maguire was sidelined for United’s last five games – including the Europa League final loss to Villarreal – with ankle ligament damage.

    It was a nightmare end to a campaign which started in turmoil following his arrest on the Greek island of Mykonos after a clash with police.

    He has appealed his 21-month prison sentence, which is suspended for three years, but the retrial is unlikely to happen until 2022.

    The defender suffered a difficult start to the season with United and England and was sent off in the Three Lions’ 1-0 Nations League defeat to Denmark at Wembley in October.

    But he quickly regained top form to become a key man for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    JOSE: SPURS DROUGHT CAN FIRE UP HARRY

    Jose Mourinho has backed Harry Kane to use his Tottenham trophy drought to fire him up for the Euros.

    Despite his fine goalscoring form, England skipper Kane has endured another frustrating trophy-less season with Spurs – and is eyeing a move away this summer.

    But old boss Mourinho believes the striker’s pain will stand him in good stead to lead the Three Lions on home turf.

    Mourinho said: “Harry (Kane) is the one that has on his shoulders a lot.

    “The country expects a lot from him. He expects a lot from himself.

    “He’s the captain and he wants to win something. He’s not doing that with the club, so, of course, he’s going to try everything he can to do it with the Three Lions.”
