What the papers say
Paris St Germain may not be done with their big spending just yet.
The Ligue 1 club, who have already signed Neymar for a world-record fee of £200.6million, are reportedly on the verge of adding Kylian Mbappe to their squad.
The Sun claims the 18-year-old Monaco forward will cost PSG £160m after the player’s father persuaded him to leave now instead of staying with the French champions for another 12 months.
PSG could recoup some money by selling Serge Aurier to Manchester United. The right-back has agreed a five-year deal with the Premier League club according to Goal.
United could face a challenge to re-sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he regains fitness.
The Swedish striker, a free agent after his deal at Old Trafford expired, is wanted by former club AC Milan, who want to take the 35-year-old back to the San Siro according to the Telegraph.
There could be some good news for Arsenal fans. The Sun is reporting Mesut Ozil is closing in on a new £225,000-a-week contract.
Ozil has just less than a year left on his current Gunners deal.
The Daily Mail writes Stoke have rejected an approach from Swansea for the Welsh club’s former midfielder Joe Allen, while Sky Sports claims the Potters still hope to land Bruno Martins Indi in time to play in their first game of the season at Everton on Saturday.
@TheSunFootball: “Arsenal offer Alexis Sanchez £300,000 a week in desperate bid to ward off Manchester City and PSG.”
@Agent_Edward: “Florentino Perez wanted to sell Bale to Man Utd so he could compete with PSG for Mbappe but Zidane wouldn’t allow it to happen.”
