Real Madrid have turned their attention to Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling after missing out on Kylian Mbappe. The 27-year-old has just a year left on his deal at the Etihad Stadium.

Mbappe has revealed that he spoke to Liverpool about a potential transfer before ultimately deciding to remain at Paris Saint-Germain.

Tottenham will allow Antonio Conte to make at least six summer signings as part of the club's bid to keep the Italian. PSG are interested in appointing him as their next manager after he led Spurs back into the Champions League.

AC Milan intend to reward former Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori with a new contract after he helped lead the club to their first Serie A title since 2011.

Arsenal have stepped up their interest in Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans. The Belgian is expected to leave King Power Stadium this summer and could cost around £25m.

Bayern Munich are continuing to pursue Liverpool forward Sadio Mane and believe a deal could be agreed for around €50m.

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong is open to joining Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The Dutchman has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League and a reunion with Erik ten Hag at Manchester United.

Ten Hag, meanwhile, has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo is part of his plans during his first official press conference.

Tottenham have joined neighbourhood rivals Arsenal in the race to sign Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus, though the Premier League champions hope he will sign a new contract.

City are eyeing signings of their own and may look to replace the departing Fernandinho with Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
