The Express

Manchester United chief Louis van Gaal has hinted that there's no way back for Javier Hernandez at Old Trafford, reports the Express.

Hernandez, despite scoring in Real's Champions League quarter-final victory over Atletico Madrid, faces an uncertain future in the game, with Van Gaal seemingly shutting the door on any potential return to United. 

The Dutch boss told reporters:  "I gave him a chance and then I said the same thing as I did to Danny Welbeck (sold to Arsenal). When you are a substitute it's no good. And I won't change over that.

"So if you score a goal you are suddenly different? I don't think so."

The Daily Star 

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could land Roma ace Mattia Destro for £12 million this summer, according to the Daily Star. 

The 24-year-old, who is currently on loan at AC Milan, looks set to leave Roma on a permanent basis, with it now appearing that a move to north London could be possible. 

Gunners fans will no doubt be hoping the club add to their forward line in the upcoming market, but it remains to be seen as to whether the club step up their pursuit of the talented Italian anytime soon.

Daily Mail 

Manchester City outcast Stevan Jovetic could join Inter Milan on loan before completing a £12 million deal to the club, according to the Daily Mail.
