Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to break the world transfer record in order to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe.
The Spanish giant are considering the possibility of making a world-record €400m bid for the French star, Le Parisien reports.
Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has not shied away from acknowledging his admiration for his French compatriot, while the 20-year-old has previously admitted that he is a fan of the legendary midfielder.
And a bid of €400m may prove too good to turn down for PSG, who are likely to make their own efforts to tie Mbappe down to an extended deal.
Real must make several player sales if they are to push through the transfer of the former Monaco man.
The youngster has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu on several occasions over the years, especially towards the end of his tenure with Monaco. In the end, he made the jump to PSG, but now the Ligue 1 champions face a battle to keep him within their ranks.
This proposed figure for a potential deal, which is tipped to take place during next summer’s transfer window, would nearly double the current record set by PSG when they purchased Neymar from Barcelona for €222m back in 2017.
PSG are also said to be ready with a move for Madrid’s Vinicius Junior should Los Blancos steal away Mbappe, while they’ve also been linked with a move for Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann.
Season over for Liverpool’s inspirational captain
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will play no further part in the champions’ bid for Premier League records with his knee injury ruling him out of the rest of the season.
Klopp confirmed that the skipper will not be able to feature again this campaign, but will not require surgery and should be fit again for next season.
He will also be there to lift the Premier League trophy against Chelsea on July 22 as the Reds finally end their 30-year wait to be crowned champions.
“Hendo is the best possible of all bad news: it is a knee injury but no surgery needed,” said Klopp. “He will not play any more in the latter stages of this season but I am pretty positive he will start with us the new season. It was an awful moment when he went down with injury. In Germany, we would call him an animal as he deals with pain so well.
“You saw he knew something happened which shouldn’t have happened. Everyone felt for him. It was a real mood killer.
“We were all concerned when we saw him going down and he left the pitch and when we got the news it was a big relief for all of us.
“It is not cool but it is the best we could get, Hendo is a quick healer and he will be back soon.
“But he deserves to lift the trophy and he will lift the trophy.”
Tiger Woods announces plans to return to PGA Tour next week
Tiger Woods will make his first PGA Tour start since February at next week’s Memorial Tournament.
The 15-time major winner pulled out of the Players Championship in March with a back injury before the coronavirus shutdown.
Professional men’s golf in the US has resumed behind closed doors and Woods is set to resume his season in Ohio from 16-19 July.
“I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys,” said Woods, 44.
“I can’t wait to get back out there.”
Woods, who has won the Memorial Tournament five times, finished 68th in his last PGA Tour appearance at the Genesis Open in February.
He last played publicly in a charity match that saw him and Peyton Manning beat Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in an event that raised $20m (£16.4m) for coronavirus relief efforts in the United States.
Tiger Woods is aiming to defend the Masters title he won for a fifth time in 2019 when the rescheduled tournament takes place from 12-15 November at Augusta National.
The rearranged USPGA Championship is now set to be the first major of the year in San Francisco from 6-9 August and the US Open is to be played at Winged Foot in New York State from 17-20 September, while the Open Championship has been cancelled.
