Saturday, 27th April 2019

Real Madrid are not keen on parting ways with centre-back Raphael Varane, and have reportedly placed a €100 million price tag amid interest of both Manchester United and Juventus.

Tiemoue Bakayoko was keen to make his AC Milan tenure a permanent one, but recent racist chants against him could force him to decide against that once the season ends.

This shouldn’t come as a shocker, but Douglas Costa might leave Juventus this summer. He hasn’t had a good season for the Serie A champions this term.

Zinedine Zidane said Real Madrid “need to strengthen their attack” next season. The alternatives? Eden Hazard, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

Nicolas Pepe will “announce his new team” in the coming weeks. Some of the best teams in Europe are interested in the Ivorian winger.

Leicester City want to sign Youri Tielemans on a permanent basis, but his parent club, Monaco, want at least £40 million for him.

Adrien Rabiot might not join Real Madrid and all signs indicate he’ll end up playing in the Premier League next season.
