PETE JENSON: Real Madrid have asked Keylor Navas to cancel his flight out of Madrid on Monday morning as they try to include him in the deal that would finally bring David De Gea to Spain.

Navas was due to leave Spain on international duty as Costa Rica prepare to face Brazil on Saturday but Real want him on stand-by as they try to persuade Manchester United to accept him as part of the De Gea transfer.

The keeper has stayed put in the Spanish capital on what Madrid press have dubbed not ‘D-Day’ but ‘De Gea Day’.

SIMON JONES: Burnley are selling striker Jelle Vossen to Club Brugge just eight weeks after signing him.

The 26-year-old started four games, making one appearance as substitute after signing from Racing Genk for £2.5million.

However, following the arrival of Andre Gray from Brentford, Burnley could afford to let Vossen go following a surprise enquiry from Brugge.

DOMINIC KING: Sunderland have revived their bid to sign Liverpool striker Fabio Borini after making an £8million offer.

Inter Milan are also keen on the 24-year-old but he is not their first option.

Sunderland were in talks with Borussia Dortmund on Saturday about a deal for Adrian Ramos but that fell through over the Colombian striker’s medical.
