Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe could perform a dramatic U-turn and renew his contract in the French capital, despite intense and long-standing interest from Real Madrid. An announcement could be made as soon as May.

A third club is said to have entered the race for Mbappe's signature alongside PSG and Real Madrid. Barcelona have been ruled out of the running, leading to the possibility that Liverpool could be set to make their move.

Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry is considering leaving the Allianz Arena, with Liverpool and Real Madrid again mooted as potential suitors.

Christian Eriksen has emerged as a target for Manchester United and former club Tottenham, who have been impressed by his return to the Premier League with Brentford after his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020.

Ajax defender Jurrien Timber has been tipped to follow Erik ten Hag to Manchester United this summer should he appointed as the club's next permanent manager. Winger Antony has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Barcelona are confident Gavi will pen a new contract at Camp Nou, despite widespread interest from around Europe. Liverpool and Manchester City are among those keen on the teenager but Barça's recent sponsorship agreement with streaming giants Spotify could allow them to offer him the wages he desires.

Barça have reopened talks with contract rebel Ousmane Dembele, with a meeting held in Morocco, and there is also confidence that central defender Ronald Araujo will extend his deal despite the club's pursuit of Chelsea duo Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger.

Newcastle are targeting Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and Brighton stopper Robert Sanchez, as well as Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi.

The Magpies could also rival Aston Villa for Kalvin Phillips' signature, with the Tynesiders willing to offer the Leeds midfielder a £120,000-per-week deal.

Roma striker Tammy Abraham has admitted he would like to prove himself back in the Premier League at some point in the future.

Perennial Man Utd target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, currently at Lazio, is back on the club's radar once again as a possible replacement for Paul Pogba.
