GARETH BALE

Real Madrid are in no mood to sell Gareth Bale after his Champions League final heroics against Liverpool. However, if the Welshman does insist on leaving the Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid will demand a record transfer fee.

The figure they would seek is €222 million, according to Spanish newspaper ABC (via Sport), which is the same price tag that took Neymar from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.

Los Blancos accept that Bale’s buyout clause of €1,000 million is unrealistic but feel a record fee is nevertheless warranted for the winger.

Bale, a Manchester United target this summer, is keen to move in order to secure regular playing time.

CLEMENT LENGLET

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has targeted Clement Lenglet as a more affordable alternative to Toby Alderweireld, according to Manchester Evening News.

The Portuguese coach is considering a €35 million bid for the Sevilla centre-back as he attempts to strengthen the Premier League outfit’s defence.

Tottenham reportedly rejected an offer in the region of €62 million for Alderweireld, prompting United to look at alternatives.

Having already completed the signings of Diogo Dalot from Porto and Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk, the Red Devils are keen on continuing their investment in the squad as they attempt to bridge the gap between themselves and Manchester City.

NEYMAR

Real Madrid hope to convince Paris Saint-Germain to sell Neymar by offering to pay €350 million for the Brazilian star this summer, reports The Sun.

According to the paper, Neymar has a stipulation in his contract that allows him to leave for €300 million after September 1, but the transfer window will be closed by then, forcing Madrid to wait until January for him to join their squad.

As such, the Champions League winners are prepared to offer an extra €50 million to pry him away from PSG ahead of the new season.

YAYA TOURE

West Ham are currently in talks with Yaya Toure regarding a move to the London Stadium, the Daily Mail reports.

The former Manchester City midfielder who won his third Premier League title with the club this season is now available as a free agent.

The Hammers have joined the race for his signature, offering the Ivorian a £220,000-a-week salary to the 35-year-old.

The move would see the veteran reunite with former City boss Manuel Pellegrini who has taken over from David Moyes this summer. During the Chilean’s title-wining season at the Etihad, Toure scored 20 goals.

The Austrian has already made a trip to Naples and is said to be impressed by the project under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Lainer is known to be versatile, capable of playing in any role down the right flank.

The 25-year-old registered two goals and 11 assists in 55 games for RB Salzburg this past season. Napoli are keen to secure his services in an attempt to boost their squad strength.

Arsenal’s summer refit under new head coach Unai Emery is set to continue with the capture of Sampdoria and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira ahead of Napoli, according to reports.

Torreira, 22, emerged as one of the most-promising players in Serie A at last term’s 10th-placed finishers. This form has not gone unnoticed elsewhere, with the breakout star in Genoa strongly linked with a switch down south to Naples.

But Gianluca Di Marzio has stated that the Gunners are looking to take advantage of a €25 million (Dh108m) release clause in his contract. They are also pondering whether to offer even more money to get the deal done.

Torreira has scored four times in 74 appearances for Samp since his 2016 arrival from Pescara.
