Real Madrid are prepared to sell Gareth Bale, if they can recoup the €100 million they paid for the Wales international, claims El Confidencial.
Bale joined Madrid for a then-world record fee from Tottenham in 2013 and has been an influential figure during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, his injury troubles have left him fighting for his future in Madrid, with coach Zinedine Zidane feeling he can’t count on Bale for a third of the season.
Madrid president Florentino Perez may now be persuaded to cash in on Bale for the right price, with Manchester United holding a long-standing interest in the forward.
Paris Saint-Germain have identified Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante as their next big-money signing, claims Le Parisien.
Kante joined Chelsea from Leicester in 2016 for a reported fee of £32 million, but he could now cost triple that amount after helping Antonio Conte’s side to the Premier League title last season.
Financial Fair Play obligations could limit what PSG can offer for Kante, but sporting director Antero Henrique is keen to bring the France international to the Parc des Princes in 2018.
Manchester City are ready to step in with a €400 million deal for Lionel Messi in January if he opts against signing his new contract at Barcelona, reports AS .
The Argentine is yet to commit to terms agreed at Camp Nou in July and could open the door to a move in the New Year rather than enter the free agent pool.
Anthony Martial is set to become the subject of a transfer battle as Barcelona and Arsenal are looking to sign him, according to reports.
The Mirror reports Arsenal see him as a possible successor to Alexis Sanchez, while Mundo Deportivo claims Barca have reignited their interest as they have long been convinced of his ability.
The 21-year-old forward has mainly been used as a substitute and rarely gets to play down the middle for Jose Mourinho, and his ongoing struggles have seen him linked with a move away.
