Kylian Mbappe has dropped a hint over his PSG future after being linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Speculation has been heavy about a switch for the French international, with the 20-year-old previously admitting he could be set for a new project.

Mbappe scored 32 league goals last term to carry the Ligue 1 giants to back-to-back titles and boasts an impressive 60 goals and 32 assists in 87 matches across all competitions.

The World Cup winner has been tipped with a move to Real Madrid after the Spanish giants endured one of their worst seasons in recent years. However, the former Monaco man has appeared to put speculation to bed with his latest tweet.

He tweeted a picture of himself in the team’s new kit with the caption “ICI C’EST PARIS 19/20 @PSG_inside”.

The translation “This is Paris 19/20” all but confirms that he will be lining out at Parc des Princes for at least one more year anyway.

A potential transfer for Leicester City’s Harry Maguire makes headlines in Wednesday’s papers.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old, but according to the Daily Telegraph will have to pay more than £90million and make him the most expensive defender of all time to land him.

The centre-back has made it clear he wants to leave Leicester, The Sun says, while the Daily Mirror reports that Arsenal have also launched a £50million bid for his signature.

Real Madrid are keen to include Gareth Bale in a potential deal for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, the Daily Mail reports.

The Old Trafford side are said to be reluctant to sell Pogba for less than £150million, but reports in Spain suggest Madrid are planning to propose a player-plus-cash offer to sweeten the deal, the paper adds.

Atletico Madrid are eyeing up a potential move for Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette as a replacement for Antoine Griezmann, the Daily Mirror says.

The Spanish side need a top player to replace the Barcelona-bound Griezmann and can offer the France international a return to the Champions League after the Gunners failed to qualify, the paper adds.

Chelsea have reportedly agreed a new long-term contract with Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The Daily Telegraph says the deal is expected to run for at least five years and could be worth more than £150,000-a-week.

Arsenal are highly unlikely to land Wilfried Zaha as Crystal Palace are determined not to sell their star man, the Daily Mirror reports.

The hierarchy at Palace are said to be angry as they believed the Gunners have deliberately set out to unsettle Zaha. The paper says Arsenal’s first approach of around £40million has been dismissed out of hand.

Tottenham have signed midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for an initial club-record fee of £53.8million.

The deal for Ndombele, who has agreed a six-year contract, could eventually be worth £62.77m, according to the French club.

Spurs said in a statement on Twitter: “We are delighted to announce the signing of Tanguy Ndombele from Olympique Lyonnais.

“The France international central midfielder has signed a contract with the club until 2025.”

Earlier, Tottenham also completed the signing of winger Jack Clarke from Leeds on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The 18-year-old will return to Elland Road on loan for the duration of the 2019/20 campaign.

Clarke had become the first signing made by Mauricio Pochettino’s Champions League finalists since Lucas Moura joined from Paris Saint-Germain during January 2018.

While Clarke is set to be one for the future, Ndombele can expect to be integrated straight into Pochettino’s squad next season.

The midfielder started his professional career at Amiens in Ligue 2, before initially joining Lyon on loan during August 2017, the move becoming permanent the following summer.

Ndombele, 22, made 96 appearances in total for the Ligue 1 side and was handed his senior international debut for France during October 2018, and has so far been capped six times.

Lyon said in a statement: “Olympique Lyonnais thanks Tanguy Ndombele for his involvement with the club since his arrival in 2017 and congratulates him for his professionalism and performance.”

Clarke, meanwhile, only made his senior debut in October but impressed enough to be named Leeds’ young player of the season.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side reached the Championship play-off semi-finals, where they were beaten by Derby.

Clarke made 25 appearances in all competitions for the West Yorkshire club, 20 as a substitute, and scored twice.

“Last season was my first at senior level, so I wasn’t really expecting to come in and play as much as I did, but it was good for me just to get used to professional football,” Clarke told Spurs TV.

“Obviously (Mauricio) is one of the best coaches in the world, a top, top manager.

“Hopefully he can help me push on and progress myself. I just want to carry on from where I left off at Leeds, kick on even more and then hopefully (following his loan) make an impact big enough to be in and around the (Spurs) team.”
