Real Madrid will be focusing on a bid for Kylian Mbappe next week, if Paris Saint-Germain punished for breaking UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations. PSG must exercise their clause to buy Mbappe from Monaco for €180m (£161.76m) on Monday but that would seriously affect UEFA's investigation into their accounts which concludes on August 30. PSG should put in the position where they might have to sell the striker to meet FFP obligations, giving Madrid a day to get their man. (AS)
Chelsea already have told Real Madrid that Marcos Alonso will cost them €60m (£53.92m). Alonso has emerged as a target for both Madrid clubs but Real Madrid has more chance because of following Marcelo’s declaration that he wants to leave Los Blancos for Juventus. If Real sell the left-back, Alonso is seen as the ideal replacement for mbappe but Chelsea's bid price and the lack of time to complete a deal might push the transfer back to.
