The city of Manchester dominates much of the news and rumors this morning as Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola look to improve their respective squads for next season.

In today's round-up, the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, plus his potential terms for a reunion with Mourinho at Manchester United, takes a turn, while Guardiola's Manchester City looks for another striker.

United is also on the hunt out for a new goalkeeper and midfielder, and reports today suggest the club isn't looking very far to fill each department.

Liverpool's ongoing chase for former Chelsea forward Mohamed Salah is included in the round-up, and it's good news for Jurgen Klopp's team. Here, Newsweek guides you through all the latest on Tuesday morning:

Mixed messages are found in today's reports regarding Ronaldo. The Sun says the Portuguese forward will not hold United to ransom over his wage demands, but Mourinho isn't even interested in signing the 32-year-old forward, according to the Daily Star.

Mourinho is, however, interested in two players from rival teams. He will battle West Ham for the signing of Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, according to the Daily Telegraph, and is looking to raid his former club Chelsea to bring midfielder Nemanja Matic to Old Trafford, The Sun says.

City may be keen to part company with Hart, having loaned him to Torino last season, but it is the attacking department that Guardiola continues to improve at the Etihad Stadium. Sky Sports say that the Spanish coach is preparing a bid for Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

City and Liverpool are two of the teams believed to be in the race to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal, but now, according to the Daily Mirror, Chelsea has also made the English midfielder a target this summer.

A player who could be on the way out of Stamford Bridge is 20-year-old midfielder Izzy Brown, who spent last season on loan at Huddersfield and could be about to join the club permanently. The Daily Mail say the newly promoted club will offer £8.5 million for the Chelsea player.

Barcelona is activating a £10.5 million buy-back clause for Spanish forward Gerard Deulofeu that the club put into a deal with Everton, according to the Daily Mail.

Swansea City is among the clubs looking to sign John Terry after he left Chelsea at the end of last season. The 36-year-old defender is linked with a variety of English clubs, including Bournemouth, Birmingham and Aston Villa, but The Mirror says Terry has now held talks with Swansea.
