Real Madrid chase Jude Bellingham, Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies transfers this summer
Real Madrid are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe and Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies this summer.
Sky Sports News reported earlier this month that talks were at an advanced stage for Bellingham - but as yet, there has been no official offer for the 19-year-old midfielder.
It has also been confirmed to Sky Sports News the three-year contract Mbappe signed last summer is broken down as a two-year deal, with the option of a further year. The extra year is a player option - meaning it is up to Mbappe whether he wants to trigger it or not.
As it stands, Mbappe is about to enter the final year of his deal. He was in a similar position last year before PSG convinced him to extend.
If Mbappe does not trigger the extra year, he can sign a pre-contract agreement with a club outside France in January.
Real Madrid are also in the market for a left-back and have a long-standing interest in Canada international Davies.
However, the 22-year-old has been described as 'unsellable' - with Bayern desperate to tie him down to a new contract. His current deal expires in the summer of 2025.
Real have often deployed midfielder Eduardo Camavinga ahead of Ferland Mendy in the left-back position.
Mendy has started only 15 LaLiga games this season, and has not played in the Champions League since November. It is thought Real will listen to offers for him this summer.
'Real would be brilliant move for Bellingham'
Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock speaking to Sky Sports News:
"When Liverpool pulled out of the race, it was almost due to the fact they knew that Bellingham might go to Real Madrid.
"When Bellingham went to Germany, it tells you everything about his personality and the player: he wants to push himself, test himself, learn new languages and play for big clubs.
"You can't deny him going to Real Madrid, it is a magnificent club. It is steeped in history, tradition and everything about it.
"You look that the players who have gone before and what it is about - I think it's a brilliant move.
"I would love to see him at Liverpool, I really would. But you look at the move and think: what a brilliant move for such a young player to go to such a huge club.
"I think it frees up Aurelien Tchouameni, he's not played as much football as he would have liked at Real Madrid. Will Liverpool go back in for him?"
