TOP STORY: Neymar tops Pogba on Madrid’s wish list

Real Madrid will withdraw their interest in Paul Pogba should they get a deal across the line for Neymar, according to The Sun

Paris Saint-Germain have accepted the Brazilian’s request to leave the club, but Madrid will have to fork out over £100m to complete the signing — and offer Neymar a contract of £700,000 per week. That’s if they can fend off interest from their friends over at Barcelona.

Based on Neymar’s treatment from some of PSG’s supporters during their Ligue 1 opening win against Nimes on Sunday, the prospects of staying in Paris look pretty slim.

Having already spent £150m on signing Eden Hazard from Chelsea this summer, it’s thought that an attempt to sign Pogba would be a bridge too far for Zinedine Zidane‘s side.

Meanwhile, the Mail reports that Manchester United are convinced Madrid don’t have the money to sign their midfielder, despite the Frenchman saying that “only time will tell” where his future lies

09.00 BST: L’Equipe reports that Sevilla striker Wissam Ben Yedder is on the verge of becoming an AS Monaco player.

The France international underwent a medical on Monday night in Monaco ahead of his transfer to the Ligue 1 club. Monaco will pay the value of the player’s €40m release clause and included in the deal will be Monaco’s Portuguese midfielder Rony Lopes.

Ben Yedder is set to sign a five-year contract with Monaco, having joined Sevilla from Toulouse in 2016 for a reported €10m and scored 70 goals in 138 appearances for the Andalusian club since.

MLS a possible destination for Sturridge

Former Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge will decide on his future this week, with offers coming in from Europe, the United States and the Middle East, according to The Times.

Now a free agent following the expiration of his contract on Merseyside this summer, Fenerbahce are the latest club to show interest in the England international. They’re willing to offer a three-year deal worth £10 million, but they are far from alone.

Sturridge’s representatives have been approached by as many as 13 different clubs, including D.C. United and the Philadelphia Union in the U.S.; Leganes, Real Valladolid and Real Betis in Spain; Bologna and Atalanta in Italy; Marseilles in France; Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany; and even clubs in Qatar.

Spurs to double Eriksen’s wages

Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to show Christian Eriksen how much they want to keep hold of him by offering him a new long-term contract and a bumper pay raise, the Daily Mail reports.

The Denmark international is currently on wages of £80,000-per-week, but amid reports that Real Madrid and Juventus are still targeting him, Spurs are willing to increase that to £200,000-per-week.

However, even if Eriksen does sign the contract, the report says that he will insist on it including a clause that will allow him to join certain clubs for a fixed price.

Tap-ins

– Wantaway Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has agreed to show 100 percent commitment to the club, at least until the transfer window reopens in January, according to The Sun. Days before the closure of the summer transfer window in England, rumours were abound that Everton were lining up a move for the Ivorian, but that didn’t materialise.

– Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is no longer considered a priority for Paris Saint-Germain, according to CalcioMercato. The French club have turned attention to Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic instead, and that suits Lazio down to the ground, as they’re not keen on losing the Serbian.
