£100m FOR BALE?There's quite a queue forming for Gareth Bale, it seems. And Daniel Levy is licking his 'fee demanding' pencil.
The Sun reports that Tottenham will demand a world record fee of £100million for their man, and that Levy hopes such a fee will scare off any potential suitors.

Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris St Germain are interested apparently, and now it seems Manchester City have joined the pack as well.

The Sunday Mirror differs slightly, claiming a paltry £65million will do should Spurs decide to sell, with qualification for the Champions League a key point in that one, it seems.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has given his side a boost heading into Monday's potentially title-winning clash against Aston Villa, insisting he expects Javier Hernandez and Rio Ferdinand to remain at Old Trafford next season.
Ferdinand's contract expires at season's end and he is believed to have stalled negotiations on a one-year extension, bidding for a longer term deal with United.
But Ferguson is adamant the defender will not look to move overseas.
 "I’ve spoken to Rio," Ferguson said. "At this moment in time, he's more concerned about getting opposition for his testimonial game. He's working on that for the moment.
"We want him to stay and obviously I’m sure his representatives will be discussing things with [Chief Executive] David Gill. I wouldn't imagine that [moving abroad] would be the best thing for him."

ARSENAL IN FOR CESARThe usual fun and games in The People leads with word that Arsenal are in for QPR's Julio Cesar.
Rangers of course will probably need to trim some of that enormous wage bill as they prepare for life in the Championship, while Cesar himself wants to stay in both London and the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger could therefore move for the 33-year-old Brazilian, having had no luck in getting Victor Valdes from Barcelona.
Curiously, the paper also claims Manchester City's reserve keeper Costel Pantilimon is an option too, as are Simon Mignolet, Michel Vorm and Pepe Reina.
Meanwhile, The Sunday Express reports that Wenger is also in for Schalke's midfielder Julian Draxler, who would cost £15million.
SPURS IN FOR SONG?There has been some talk that Alex Song is unhappy at Barcelona, and even that he might return to Arsenal.
However, both The People and The Sunday Mirror reckon Tottenham is a more likely destination.
Meanwhile, The Mirror says AC Milan want Benny Assou-Ekotto.

Stekelenburg to Fulham?
Fulham have opened talks about a £5.1m summer deal for Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, 30.
