The Independent reports that Real Madrid's £160million move for KYLIAN MBAPPE could see GARETH BALE sold to Manchester United.

In north London, Arsenal is set to sell Spanish striker Lucas Perez after failing to make an impact in his first season at the Emirates Stadium. In fact, since attempting to sign the Wales international, United chief executive Ed Woodward has been a 'long-time admirer' of Bale.

Soon, he may well get to see the football icon up close and personal.

But to play under one of the most successful managers of the 21st century would represent an exciting challenge that many players would find tough to turn down.

"Let's hope that all of the members of the 'BBC' stay here", Zidane told Madrid's official website.

"They are in a very good situation now and I never felt a desire for him to leave, so why waste time on it? No".

Bale was benched for the Champions League final win over Juventus despite being fit in time for the Cardiff showpiece.

Mbappe is almost certain to become the first ever player bought for £100 million - and then some - which, unless Madrid somehow manoeuvre a player or two into the deal, would decimate their coffers, if not empty them. I don't think that at United is going to happen, because I don't want to go.

Mourinho further said: "Real Madrid, for me, was really something that I wanted to do".

The Daily Mirror says that Everton boss Ronald Koeman has not finished his recruitment drive as he is still keen on adding three more players to his squad. "We changed not just for the short term but for the next four, five, six years". I was not in love with my life there. The Toffees have been active in the transfer market this summer and will face competition from Crystal Palace and Stoke City for the 33-year-old.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola could hand £52m signing Benjamin Mendy his debut on Monday as the Citizens take on European champions Real Madrid in a pre-season clash.
