LIVE Transfer Talk: Real Madrid want Mbappe, Camavinga in ‘galactico’ summer


The coronavirus pandemic made the summer transfer market unlike any before it, but there were still plenty of deals done, and you can check out the major ones here. The window might be closed across the top leagues in Europe, but here are the best rumours from around the globe.

TOP STORY: Real Madrid target Camavinga and Mbappe double

AS is predicting a “galactico“-style transfer approach next year at Real Madrid, with Los Blancos expected to bid for PSG’s Kylian Mbappe and Eduardo Camavinga of Rennes.

Madrid have been linked with both players in 2020 already, but the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic prevented them from making tangible moves in the summer market.

However, AS believes Zidane remains interested in both players and that the Frenchman plans to bring both to the Bernabeu ahead of the 2021-22 season.

Mbappe has been in excellent form this season and has scored seven goals and contributed seven assists in his first eight appearances of the season for Paris Saint-Germain. The World Cup winner is said to be interested in joining Zidane in the Spanish capital, though he is also wanted by Liverpool.

Camavinga is a regular starter at Rennes and has scored once in nine Ligue 1 games, with one assist, despite being just 17 years old.

Since then, the 20-year-old has remained one of Europe’s most coveted young talents, and he has scored 26 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund going into Saturday’s huge Bundesliga clash with Bayern Munich (stream LIVE at 12.30 p.m. ET on ESPN+ in the U.S.).

AS reports that Real Madrid are interested in bringing Haaland to the Bernabeu in 2022 as that is when Karim Benzema’s contract is due to expire.

However, the Spanish outlet adds that Dortmund have not made any agreement with any club over a future transfer.

10.47 GMT: Chelsea manager Frank Lampard insists that defender Fikayo Tomori has a future at the club despite not starting a Premier League match since February.

Tomori broke into the first team under Lampard last season and made his senior England debut, but has fallen out of favour since the turn of the year. The 22-year-old turned down a loan move to West Ham on the final day of the last transfer window, and was also wanted by Everton, but the arrival of Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger also staying at the club have seen him bumped down the pecking order.
