A round up of the sport headlines from UK newspapers on 13 June

Pogba fee set at £150m

Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Welsh winger Daniel James from Swansea City, but it’s a potential departure from Old Trafford that is making the headlines today.

Paul Pogba has been linked with Real Madrid and according to the Daily Star and Daily Mirror United have told the Spanish giants that the French midfielder will cost them £150m.

Meanwhile, in The Sun there’s an “Old Trafford shock” with reports that Man Utd could make a last-gasp bid to hijack Antoine Griezmann’s £95m move to Barcelona from Atletico Madrid.

Horror crash

British cyclist Chris Froome has been ruled out of next month’s Tour de France after a “horror crash”.

The Times and The Guardian report that the 34-year-old suffered fractures of his right femur, elbow and ribs during a practice ride before stage four of the Criterium du Dauphine in Roanne, France.

The four-time Tour de France champion was airlifted to hospital and the BBC reports this morning that he is in intensive care and having surgery.
