    Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that the Reds and Borussia Dortmund are keeping tabs on Malen during the summer transfer window.

    MBAPPE CONTRACT

    Paris Saint-Germain have announced that Mbappe has signed a new contract with the club – but it's not Kylian.

    That is instead the star centre-forward's younger brother Ethan, who put pen to paper for a further three seasons, through 2024.

    Kylian has a contract with the senior team until next year, so the Paris giants will want to renew with him as soon as possible.

    The 22-year-old is currently competing at Euro 2020 with France

    HIT THE ROAD JACK

    Manchester City seem to be plotting a £100million bid for Aston Villa star Jack Grealish after Euro 2020.

    In fact, it seems like City are willing to break the current British transfer record, which currently sits at the £89m Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba.

    And Grealish's reps are confident they have got the green light for him to leave Villa.

    City boss Pep Guardiola is desperate to bring the forward to the Etihad this summer as he plots a title defence and to finally win the club’s first Champions League.

    Villa have remained insistent they do not want to sell the 25-year-old, who has four years left to run on his contract.

    But SunSport understands talks with the England international's agents Stellar over the past few weeks have left his team happy they now have an agreement which would allow the playmaker to quit once the Euros come to an end

    TRANSFER ROUND-UP

    Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Ben White still top the transfer gossip.

    Borussia Dortmund's England wideman Sancho could complete a long-awaited move to Manchester United for up to £80million next month.

    But there's talk Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane's wage demands of around £400,000 a week are a huge stumbling block to an Old Trafford transfer.

    Meanwhile, it's claimed Brighton are holding out for £50million PLUS add-ons for Arsenal's top target, England centre-back White.

    It follows Arsenal reportedly upping their second bid to £42m.

    Liverpool, Tottenham, PSG and Borussia Dortmund have also been linked with the 23-year-old.

    Everton are said to be in discussions with Juventus to sign United and Arsenal target Merih Demiral.

    And Barcelona frontman Martin Braithwaite is rated as a summer target for at least four {Premier League clubs.

     West Ham, Brighton, Burnley and newly-promoted Norwich City are keen on the Denmark star.

    BAGGIES EYE BRYAN

    West Brom's new boss Valerien Ismael plans to land centre-half Kean Bryan from relegated rivals Sheffield United.

    Ismael is eager to bolster his squad on a budget.

    And versatile Bryan, 24, may be tempted to join him as he decides where to play next season.

    Bryan made 13 Premier League appearances last term for the Blades.

    He has interest from several clubs — but a chance to join Ismael at the Baggies could appeal most.

    Ismael also rates his old Barnsley midfield general Alex Mowatt.

    TOON FIGHT 8 CLUBS FOR HINCAPIE

    Newcastle are in a nine-club transfer tussle to sign Ecuador star Piero Hincapie.

    The 19-year-old centre-back plays his club football in Argentina’s top flight with Talleres de Cordoba.

    But he has caught the eye when starting all three of his country’s games in Copa America in Brazil this month.

    He has shone against Colombia, Venezuela and Peru, even though his nation are still searching for a first win and look unlikely to get out of the group stages.

    Hincapie is now preparing to take on the hosts and favourites on Sunday.

    And he will have the ideal opportunity to showcase his talents to the long-list of admirers when he goes up against the star-studded forward line of Neymar, Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino.

    Mundo Deportivo claims that Newcastle are one of those preparing to make a move for the talented teen.

    His asking price is believed to be around the £8.6million mark.

    ZZ'S WRITE AND WRONG

    Zinedine Zidane did not write the farewell letter that took aim at Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president has claimed.

    Los Blancos accepted the coach's resignation for the second time in May following a trophy-less season at the Bernabeu.

    Upon his departure, French legend Zidane detailed his poor relationship with Perez in an open letter to fans.

    However the 74-year-old has insisted the claims were not penned by the ex-midfielder, who he wanted to keep at the club.

    Perez told Onda Cero, via Marca: "I know [Zidane] and it has been a hard year, I fought for him to stay. I have not read the farewell letter, I swear on my grandchildren.

    "The person who wrote that letter was not Zidane. I wish him well, he has been a legend for Real Madrid and he has all of our recognition, he has the dream of being the French coach and I'm sure he will achieve it."

    POTT-ENHAM POSSIBILITY

    Graham Potter has emerged as the latest front-runner to be the new Tottenham manager.

    But former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is also back in contention after another day of drama in the North London club’s long-running hunt.

    Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is keen on Brighton boss Potter being as successful as his last raid for a South Coast rookie, when he snapped up Mauricio Pochettino from Southampton in 2014.

    The Seagulls chief is earning widespread praise for improving the Sussex strugglers’ style of play while managing to keep them in the Premier League.

    Levy has been searching for a permanent boss since sacking Jose Mourinho in April.

    Pochettino, Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers, Erik ten Hag and Antonio Conte have all been touted for the job.

    Paulo Fonseca, replaced by Mourinho at Roma last month, was the favourite for the post until Spurs turned their attention to former Napoli chief Gennaro Gattuso last week.

    But within 24 hours Tottenham ended their interest in the Italian following a backlash from fans upset by some historical tweets about race and same-sex marriage.

    Sevilla president Jose Castro claimed manager Julen Lopetegui had also turned down a “dizzying” offer from Tottenham to take the job.

    GUNNERS ON GAARD AGAIN?

    Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has hinted that Arsenal loanee Martin Odegaard could be allowed to leave the club this summer.

    Odegaard spent the second half of last season at the Emirates and put together a string of impressive performances that convinced manager Mikel Arteta to try and sign the playmaker in the summer.

    But Perez suggested the Norway international could be allowed to leave either via permanent transfer or another loan deal.

    The Real supremo said: “We have 35 players and can only register 25… [Dani] Ceballos, [Takefusa] Kubo, Odegaard, we can’t fit them all.

    “We’re talking with players and their agents. We have a lot of young players, if they can’t develop here they can go on loan and come back.”

    'BARCA SHOULD SIGN REAL LEGEND RAMOS'

    Barcelona legend Samuel Eto'o thinks the Catalans should sign Sergio Ramos this summer.

    The Real Madrid legend was released this month after his contract expired and has been linked to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

    But Eto'o, 40, who played for both Spanish giants, is keen for Ramos to do likewise.

    As a PSG fan the Cameroonian would also like Ramos to move to Paris, as he believes the Spaniard could help the club to an elusive first Champions League title.

    But he also suggested that Barcelona ought to make a move for the 35-year-old.

    He told AS: "Hopefully Sergio goes to PSG. If I could sign him for Barca, I would. If he goes to PSG, I will be happy and I know that he will help us win the Champions League, which is proving very difficult for us."

    TOFFEES STEAL A MARCNH ON UTD AND ARSENAL TARGET

    Everton are in talks with Juventus to sign Manchester United and Arsenal target Merih Demiral, reports say.

    The Toffees have now been set an asking price for the defender they have long sought.

    A report from Italian outlet Tuttosport claims the Serie A outfit want €40million (£37.5m) for the centre-back.

    Everton were plotting a £26m move for Demiral in March, so owner Farhad Moshiri will have to spend more than he planned to get his man.

    Talks between the two clubs had reportedly taken place before Juventus decided to up their price.

    And Everton are not prepared to make a new bid until they appoint a manager.

    VARANE ‘PAY DEMANDS’ ARE BIG HURDLE

    Manchester United could face a possible setback in their bid to sign Real Madrid star Raphael Varane.

    That is according to The Independent, who claim Varane’s rumoured £400,000-a-week wage demands are believed to be a stumbling block.

    The France international, though, is keen to move to Old Trafford in the summer.

    The star defender is among Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top centre-back targets as he looks for someone to partner up with Harry Maguire at the back

    WORTH THE WAITE

    West Ham will reportedly face an uphill battle to land Barcelona ace Martin Braithwaite as a further THREE Premier League sides are said to be interested in signing the forward.

    Hammers boss David Moyes – who recently penned a new deal at the London Stadium – is keen to bolster his attacking options this summer.

    According to reports, Denmark international Braithwaite is one of the players on the Scot's wishlist.

    But it's been claimed Moyes will face competition for his services from Brighton, Burnley and newly-promoted Norwich City.

    Spanish newspaper Sport claims the trio are also 'on the prowl' for Braithwaite's signature.

    The English quartet, however, could end up missing out on Braithwaite as Barca are reportedly in talks with an unknown Russian club over a deal for the 30-year-old.

    THEY THINK IT'S ALL ALBA

    Barcelona are reportedly willing to listen to offers from Inter Milan for veteran Jordi Alba.

    The left-back, 32, has enjoyed an incredible career in Catalonia since his return to the Nou Camp from Valencia in 2012.

    The Spain vice-captain initially came through the ranks at Barca before departing for Cornella and going on to play for Gimnastic on loan as well as Valencia. 

    He has won the Spanish league title five times plus the Champions League while making almost 300 appearances for the club.

    But Barcelona are facing an economic crisis and are attempting to trim their mega wage bill while trying to persuade talisman Lionel Messi to stay.

    And Barca Blaugranes claims they have informed Inter they will listen to their offers for the defender.

    JESSE CAN NOW BE AN OLD TRIFFID STAR

    Mancheater United star Jesse Lingard has revealed the key to his recent success was changing to a plant-based diet.

    The midfielder, 28, spent the second half of last season playing for West Ham on loan.

    And he was sensational with the Hammers, scoring nine times in 16 games as David Moyes’ side qualified for the Europa League.

    Many felt Lingard was unfortunate to miss out on a place in the Euro 2020 squad, but the secret reason behind his rejuvenation is how he’s fuelled his body.

    And while the winger isn’t completely vegan, he has changed to a flexitarian diet – meaning animal products are eaten only occasionally and plant-based foods are consumed more regularly.

    He revealed: “At first, I tried to go fully vegan straight away, but I found I was starving during a game.

    “Plant-based foods are always going to be a good fuel component and put you into a really good mode going into a game, so I make sure to have as much as possible.”

    SPURS IN DUSAN FIGHT

    Tottenham have made a transfer offer for Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic, according to reports.

    But the North London side face competition for his signature from AC Milan and Atletico Madrid.

    According to Calciomercato, the three clubs have all submitted formal bids for the Serbian striker.

    The forward, 21, is under contract until 2023 and rated at around £51million which could prove a major stumbling block to Daniel Levy.

    His Tottenham side can only offer Europa Conference League football in Europe next season whereas Milan and LaLiga champs Atleti will be in the Champions League.

    Vlahovic joined Fiorentina from Partizan Belgrade three years ago.

    PLATE STAR ON UNITED MENU

    Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing River Plate star Nicolas De La Cruz.

    The attacking midfielder has 18 months left on his contract and his form has caught the eye of potential suitors.

    River Plate are believed to want between €16million-€20m (£13.75m-£17m) for De La Cruz, according to TNT Sports Argentina.

    De La Cruz, 24, has scored once and assisted three goals in 11 league games for River Plate in 2021.

    But a return of 19 goals and 28 assists in 128 games for River Plate has earned him international recognition, and he has won eight caps for Uruguay.

    He could join his compatriot Edinson Cavani at United, which may help the striker feel more at home after reports claimed he felt homesick earlier in the year.

    CHEAP KAB HIIRE

    Premier League clubs including Leicester and Newcastle are reportedly eyeing a cut-price deal for Ozan Kabak.

    The centre-back cost Schalke £13million when signing from Stuttgart two years ago and was touted as a star of the future.

    However, the German club's relegation from the Bundesliga and Kabak's poor form look set to wreck their chances of making a profit on the 21-year-old.

    Schalke allowed him to join Liverpool on loan in January for just £1m – with the hope the Reds would secure his permanent transfer for an extra £17m.

    An underwhelming stint at Anfield, consisting of just 13 appearances, meant Jurgen Klopp refused the option to enact his purchase clause.

    And Kabak was left on the bench for all three of Turkey's Euro 2020 games as his country left the tournament without winning a point.

    INTER AND ATLETICO EYE BELLERIN

    Hector Bellerin is reportedly being monitored by Atletico Madrid, Villarreal and Inter Milan.

    The Arsenal full-back’s representative is reportedly holding talks with suitors.

    But the Gunners are said to want at least £17m for the four-cap Spain star, 26.

    AGUERO TRYING TO PERSUADE MESSI TO STAY

    Sergio Aguero is trying to convince Lionel Messi to stay at Barcelona and partner him in attack this season.

    The clock is ticking on the Argentine putting pen to paper before he becomes a free agent on June 30.

    The LaLiga giants are hoping to get their talisman’s future sorted as soon as possible so that they can budget for the summer transfer window ahead and assure both fans and sponsors that they remain among football's elite clubs.

    Messi, 34, was recently reportedly 'undecided' over whether to stay at the Nou Camp.

    That was according to Marca, who claimed the Catalans were putting together a two-year deal worth £850,000-a-week.

    That mega contract would still be a sizeable pay cut on the astronomical deal that Messi was handed in 2017.

    CLOSE TO SAN UTD

    Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho, reports suggest.

    According to Manchester Evening News, sources close to Sancho expect the deal to be completed soon, possibly within the next two weeks.

    The winger has agreed personal terms in principle and an up-front fee of €85million (£73m) has been settled on.

    Dortmund are trying to to extract up to €15m (£13m) in add-ons to complete the deal.

    Negotiations are still ongoing regarding the structure of the payments and the majority of the add-ons have been described as ‘achievable

    VARANE REPLACEMENT

    This is a major boost for Manchester United in the bid to sign Real Madrid star Raphael Varane.

    According to Fijaches, Real are preparing for life after Varane and have pointed at Leicester star Wesley Fofana as a potential replacement.

    Manager Carlo Ancelotti was impressed with Fofana during his time in the Premier League while in charge of Everton.

    Varane has been linked with a move to Manchester United and the centre-back is keen to join the Red Devils
