Bale ready to fight for Real Madrid future

The winger is eager to stay put

Gareth Bale is set to put his differences with Zinedine Zidane aside and push to remain at Real Madrid, according to the Mirror.

The Wales star is contracted to the club until June 2022 but was close to a move to China last summer.

The 30-year-old is now, however, content in Madrid and eager to see out his current contract.

Man Utd monitoring Meunier situation at PSG

​Manchester United are monitoring Thomas Meunier's situation as Paris Saint-Germain, according to Le Quotidied Du Foot.

The Belgium international will see his contract expire this summer and has been heavily linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund.

AC Milan have also been credited with an interest in the 28-year-old.

West Ham to make £15m Braithwaite move

West Ham are ready to make a £15 million (€17m/$19m) move for Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite, reports the Daily Mail.

Braithwaite only joined the Blaugrana from Leganes in February, arriving amid controversy as he was allowed to join after the transfer window closed due to an injury exception.

But the Danish international has featured just three times for Barca, who could immediately sell with their attackers likely to be healthy when football returns from its coronavirus hiatus.

Barca eager to cash in on Rakitic

Barcelona are ready to sell Ivan Rakitic this summer and hope to land around €20 million ($22m) from his transfer, reports Marca.

The Croatian is contracted at Camp Nou until June 2021 and the Catalans are eager to move him on to ensure he doesn't leave for free next year.

Bayern prioritising Werner over Sane

Bayern Munich are increasingly unlikely to make any future move for Manchester City attacker Leroy Sane and have instead turned their attention to RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, according to Kicker.

Doubts over Sane's mentality have seen the Bundesliga club distance themselves from further pursuing a deal for the winger.

While Werner has impressed Bayern on and off the pitch, with the club considering the idea of signing him as a future replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

Kane a great fit for Man City - Redknapp

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes Harry Kane will be questioning his future at the club and said he could prove an ideal signing for Manchester City.

Kane admitted this week that his long-term future may lie away from Spurs should they fail to compete for silverware with Manchester United one of the clubs most strongly linked with a possible move.

While hopeful Kane remains at Tottenham, Redknapp concedes he may contemplate a move away soon, with United's bitter rivals a potentially perfect match for him with main striker Sergio Aguero set to turn 32 in June.

Premier League clubs worried about pay-cuts

Premier League sides are fearful they won't be able to negotiate pay-cuts with their players amidst the coronavirus pandemic, reports the Telegraph.

Talks with the Professional Footballers' Association have failed to progress at this stage with clubs concerned whether any inroads will be made.

Serie A and La Liga sides have already successfully negotiated significant pay-cuts with their players but it's not proving so easy in the Premier League.
