  3. The two clubs have reached an impasse

    BBC Sport

    Jadon Sancho is viewed as Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s main summer transfer target.

    However, Borussia Dortmund and United have reached an impasse over the size of the fee.

    Dortmund want around £100m for the player, including a large up-front payment.

    United view that as unrealistic and does not take into account the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

    The Old Trafford club – who meet FC Copenhagen in the Europa League quarter-final in Cologne this evening – have threatened to look at alternatives whilst there has also been a suggestion Dortmund would offer Sancho a new contract. The 20-year-old’s present deal expires in 2022.

    Dortmund have two games during their training camp, against Austrian side SCR Altach on Wednesday and Austria Vienna on Sunday.

  4. BreakingSancho named in Dortmund squad

    Time to bring you an update on the Jadon Sancho situation...

    The England forward, 20, has been named in the Borussia Dortmund squad for this week’s training camp in Switzerland.

    Dortmund officials had given Manchester United until today to come up with a suitable offer for the England international.

    However, there has been no agreement, so Sancho will be part of a squad that also contains new signing Jude Bellingham.

    Transfer gossip

    The Daily Star

    The Daily Star are reporting that Arsenal are interested in signing Philippe Coutinho.

    But the Gunners face a wait to begin talks with the Barcelona midfielder, 28, because the Brazil international - on loan at Bayern Munich - wants to focus on winning the Champions League first.

    You can read that, and the rest of today's transfer gossip, here.

  9. WATCH: A pearler from Pirlo

    As I mentioned earlier, the classy Andrea Pirlo was appointed as the new Juventus manager over the weekend.

    The former Juve midfielder has won most of the big prizes as a player, including the World Cup with Italy in 2006.

    Here's a look back to one of the goals of that tournament...

  10. Liverpool seek Robertson cover

    Time for some more transfer news now...

    Liverpool could turn their attention to Olympiakos left-back Kostas Tsimikas after their initial attempt to sign Norwich's Jamal Lewis failed.

    The Reds had a £10m bid for 22-year-old Lewis, which included a substantial sell-on clause, rejected.

    It is understood they were prepared to go to £12m but the Canaries wanted significantly more.

    Liverpool, seeking cover for Scotland captain Andy Robertson, have also been monitoring Tsimikas, 24.

  11. Atletico report two positive tests

    As well all know, this year has been blighted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Football has been severely effected with league seasons across the globe cut short and fans not allowed into stadiums.

    Atletico Madrid face RB Leipzig in Thursday's Champions League quarter-final in Lisbon, and the Spanish club say two individuals have tested positive for the virus.

    The club said the unnamed individuals are isolating at home.

    The positive cases were discovered after first-team players and club staff travelling to Lisbon were tested in Madrid on Saturday.

    They will now be retested along with close contacts of the positive cases.

  12. Get Involved - will Martial add to his goal tally tonight?

    Tweet #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)

    πcrustfalse: Of course Martial will add to his tally, with Rashford and Greenwood delivering quality from wings and Bruno from midfield, he's sure to bag 5 or 6 more to boot.

  13. Europa League schedule

    More on the Europa League format now...

    As well as England (Manchester United and Wolves), Ukraine (Shakhtar Donetsk), Switzerland (Basel), Denmark (FC Copenhagen), Italy (Inter Milan), Germany (Bayer Leverkusen) and Spain (Sevilla) are represented in the quarter-finals.

    Europa League schedule

    Inter Milan also face Bayer Leverkusen in the quarter-final this evening (20:00 BST).

    It will be Inter's first European quarter-final since the 2010-11 Champions League, while Leverkusen have reached the last eight of a major European competition for the first time since the 2007-08 Uefa Cup.

  14. Expect goals at Man Utd

    Manchester United v FC Copenhagen (20:00BST)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    If the referee is anything to go by, there could be plenty of goals in Manchester United's Europa League quarter-final with FC Copenhagen tonight.

    Frenchman Clément Turpin will be in charge, as he was when Bayern Munich won 7-2 at Tottenham earlier this season - and when Manchester City beat Schalke 7-0 the year before.

    Turpin has been refereeing in the Greek League to keep fit, most recently in the PAOK-Aris derby in Thessaloniki.

    He booked five and sent off one.

  15. The classiest man in football?

    Sticking with the theme of European football, Serie A champions appointed Andrea Pirlo as their new manager over the weekend.

    As possibly the classiest man in football, Pirlo has won pretty much everything in the game, and the former midfielder replaces Maurizio Sarri at the helm.

    We take a look at whether the 41-year-old is the perfect fit for the 'Old Lady', and whether the maestro player can be a maestro manager?

  17. 'More to come from Martial'

    Manchester United v FC Copenhagen (20:00 BST)

    Manchester United

    Manchester United enjoyed an impressive end to the Premier League season after finishing third and securing Champions League qualification, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want to add some silverware to the Old Trafford collection by winning the Europa League.

    Speaking ahead of his side's quarter-final tie with FC Copenhagen, Solskjaer said "there's more to come" from Anthony Martial after the finest season of the Frenchman's career.

    Martial, 24, scored his 23rd goal of the season against LASK in Wednesday's Europa League last-16 victory.

    He has never scored more than 17 in a single campaign and this term's tally is more than the last two seasons combined.

    "Physically, he is at the best level of his career," said Solskjaer.

  18. Seven games in 12 days

    Manchester United v Copenhagen (20:00 BST)

    As I said in my opening entry, the season is now 366 days old, and the action isn't over yet.

    It's set to be another busy night of European football as Manchester United face FC Copenhagen in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

    The seven remaining games will be played in 12 days to decide the winner of the 2019-20 competition, with Wolves also in quarter-final action against Sevilla on Tuesday.

    The mini-tournament, dubbed 'the final eight', will take place at four venues in Germany.

  19. Crossing the capital?

    In other transfer news, Brazil winger Willian has confirmed he has left Chelsea after seven years at the club.

    Willian, 32, missed Chelsea's Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich on Saturday with an ankle injury and is now out of contract.

    BBC Sport reported last week that Arsenal were closing in on a deal for the midfielder.

    "The time has now come to move on," Willian wrote in an open letter to Chelsea fans.
