Manchester United are keeping a close eye on the future of Gareth Bale with the news that the Welsh star could be made available if Real Madrid make progress with their £160m pursuit of Kylian Mbappe.
Real are looking to break the transfer world record with a move for Monaco striker Mbappe, and if they see room to move in the summer window, they could look to sell former Tottenham wing Bale to free up the additional funds needed for the teenager.
That would open the door for United to move for the 28-year-old, with The Independent revealing this week that Jose Mourinho is monitoring his situation in the knowledge that United are the only club that Bale will leave Madrid for.
Elsewhere, Liverpool are determined to dig in and not allow Philippe Coutinho to join Barcelona, although their resolve will be tested if the Catalans follow up their interest with an official bid in the coming days.
Finally, Arsenal are said to still be in for Monaco forward Thomas Lemar, although his future could depend heavily on the Ligue 1 side’s ability to hold on to Mbappe this summer.
