Gary Neville believes that the club that recruits the best the summer will win the Premier League title this summer - but he is backing it to be one of Manchester United or City.

However, Chelsea's attention appears to be split between a number of strikers as it stands - with Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believed to currently sit at the top of their wish list - and it could leave Milan free to secure a deal for Morata.

Jose Mourinho's side were interested in Real Madrid striker Morata before completing the signing of Lukaku for a reported £75million.

"I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player", said Mourinho.

In possibly the most incredible claim possible, the club are seemingly quite confident that Madrid will not pay the money, regardless of their financial state.

The striker is claimed to be ready to snub interest from Chelsea and move to the Rossoneri this summer.

The news will come as another bitter blow to Antonio Conte, who has now seen striker Diego Costa mock him on social media - while wearing an Atletico Madrid shirt.

AC Milan are expected to press the accelerator on negotiations as soon as they are back from their tour of the Far East.

Should Schmeichel end up making the move to Old Trafford and following his father's footsteps, it'll be worthwhile seeing whether the Danish star has enough in his locker to fill the boots left by De Gea.

"Clearly we are still thinking of doing something else in that position. I can't find the words to explain what it means". Instead, they sent the attacking midfielder to Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal with an option to buy.

You're not just talking about winning the Premier League title, you're talking about competing in Europe.
