Bale Tells Modric He Wants To Leave Real Madrid

Ironically, Chelsea have also failed to convince Italian midfielder Antonio Candreva from Inter as Antonio Conte looks to reunite with the 30-year-old.

Spanish giants Real Madrid will only negotiate with Manchester United over a deal for Gareth Bale if they are willing to sell goalkeeper David de Gea, according to a report. According to the Express, the Blues are keeping tabs on the situation surrounding his future at the Santiago Bernabeu.

After splashing out more than £100m this summer, Everton have raised optimism of challenging the top six this season, but their ambition stretches further yet with the Mirror claiming the Toffees are ready to bid £30m for Danny Welbeck.

"In the meantime, Gareth Bale could well feature for Madrid when they face United on Tuesday in the UEFA Super Cup".

"But now the English Premier League is the best league in the world so I'd love Liverpool to keep Coutinho".

Tottenham meanwhile could be about to make their first summer signing, with the Mirror claiming that Mauricio Pochettino is interested in signing Genoa forward Giovanni Simeone - the 22-year-old son of the Atletico Madrid boss Diego.

However, the main reason why Madrid has not intensified the negotiation has been not so much because of the economic demands of Monaco, as the sporting guidelines of Zidane.

The agreement was not completely tied up but it is very close from both sides point of view. In the one season he's played at Juventus, Higuain scored 24 Serie A goals and five Champions League goals as Juventus won Serie A comfortably and reached the Champions League final.

Nemanja Matic's first appearance in a Manchester United shirt didn't go entirely to plan as Jose Mourinho's latest signing broke a spectator's glasses after accidentally kicking the ball at her face. Metro says Forsberg would likely command a similar £35m price tag to Perisic given his stellar performances last season for RB Leipzig.

Here's a skim through some of the City-related gossip doing the rounds this Sunday morning. This move is also around the 100-million-euro mark but Liverpool have so far held firm in rejecting advances for their star.

Mourinho is said to be keen on making another marquee acquisition to his squad and has turned his attentions to Bale after failing in his pursuit of Antoine Griezmann.

Following the departure of Neymar to PSG, a Barcelona transfer target has emerged who is not a replacement for the Brazilian.
