Big news of the weekend is that Real Madrid will not be moving for Kylian Mbappe at this time and will be keeping former Spurs man Gareth Bale for at least one more season. We could still meet him in the Champions League, of course, but at least Gareth won’t be lining up with Man United or Chelsea this season.
That said, Madrid is also reportedly extending Isco so Gareth could have a fight for playing time this season.
Wesley Sneijder is close to sealing a move to Nice.
Marcelo Bielsa kicked off his return to Ligue 1 with Lille by thumping Claudio Ranieri’s Nantes 3-0.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be staying at Dortmund this season.
Juve midfielder Mario Lemina set to join Southampton in €18m deal.
Dortmund says €100m would not be enough to get them to sell young star Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona. In this market who can blame them?
