However, according to Jamie Jackson in the Guardian, the European champions are prepared to wait a year for Mbappé, and have told Bale that he is very much part of Zinedine Zidane's future plans as a result.

Chelsea have joined Manchester United in the race to sign Real Madrid star Gareth Bale, according to reports in Spain. After all, Ivan Perisic's transfer has stalled, and that means there is an area in the team which needs strengthening, and in that event, why not get the best player available to fill that role?

The 20-year-old Frenchman has admitted he welcomes the transfer speculation linking him with the club at the moment.

There was originally a feeling that United would submit a bid of that size next summer but, given recent developments, it appears the situation has changed. He has apparently been shopped around on the quiet to Premier League clubs namely Chelsea and Manchester United.

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.

Real president Florentino Perez has long supported Bale but reportedly no longer feels he is up to the challenge of one day replacing Cristiano Ronaldo as the club's main man.

United are going head-to-head with Tottenham for the services of Barkley with Mourinho known to be a fan of the England international.

Mbappe staying at Monaco for another year would be unlikely to hinder his development.

PSG will sign Neymar and Manchester City are withdrawing any interest after spending more than 250m euros already in this window.

AS Monaco are at the center of the transfer market this summer, and they are usually heavily involved.

He has sent a WhatsApp message to his pal Modric to underline his determination to leave the Spanish capital this summer, the report claims.

Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, 26, is likely to miss the opening of the Premier League season with his future looking increasingly uncertain.

"Although he was unable to prevent Middlesbrough from suffering relegation to the Championship, Gibson received widespread praise for the performances that he produced last campaign".

Mbappe would undoubtedly add a freshness to the Real XI with his incredible movement, fearlessness and composed finishing.
