“monstrous” fee agreed for the young Monaco star

Real Madrid and AS Monaco have agreed an astonishing €180m fee for Kylian Mbappé, according to Marca.

The fee would see Real Madrid pay €160m for the teenager, with the extra €20m tied up in bonuses. The report does not say how much of the fee would be paid up front.

As things stand, such a fee would easily be the biggest ever.

Mbappé would reportedly earn €7m-a-year and sign a contract until 2023.

The two clubs met last week to discuss the transfer, with a €190m fee mentioned. Marca suggest only the approval of Zinedine Zidane – busy with the club’s pre-season tour in America – was missing to complete the deal.

After Álvaro Morata completed an €80m move to Chelsea there is no question Real Madrid can afford the fee and their interest in Mbappé is no secret. He would be expected to compete for a first team spot immediately.

The biggest question for Real Madrid ? THE FORWARDS

There is only one man (I should say boy) in the discussion here. Yep, you guessed it right. It’s Kylian Mbappé

The very young French lad, who’s been hot since his glorious performance in the UEFA champions league last season is the name on everyone’s lips at the moment and nothing would please Pérez more than to land the latest brightest young star in the footballing galaxy. Benzema is the certain number one at the moment — it says something that his former back-ups, Gonzalo Higuaín and Álvaro Morata, are now two of the most expensive strikers of all time.

Morata’s departure certainly leaves a hole but Ronaldo and Bale can both operate in more traditional striking roles, if required. However, Mbappé’s elite goalscoring instincts and creativity would add a whole other dimension to the Madrid attack. Over to you, Florentino.

Business remaining:
The excellent business conducted on Morata means that Madrid now definitely have the funds to sign Mbappé and stay within the bounds of Financial Fair Play. The Galacticos are reportedly agreed a fee of €145 million for the Monaco’s golden boy. Let’s wait and see where he’ll land after the opening of the transfer window

They will do everything they can to tempt the young Frenchman to the Bernabéu but in the event that they are unsuccessful, Madrid will still probably have to sign another striker to cover for Benzema

Jose Mourinho – “Manchester united failed in Morata bid

Jose Mourinho has confirmed Manchester United failed with a bid to bring Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata to Old Trafford.

United had been strongly linked with a move for the Spain international before the Premier League club concluded a £75million deal to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton.

Mourinho indicated Morata had been one of United’s top targets as the club prepares to return to the Champions League, but no agreement could be reached with Madrid.

“I don’t like to speak about players who aren’t ours, because Morata is not our player. I am nobody to speak about players from Real Madrid,” Mourinho told reporters.

While United missed out on Morata, the club snapped up Lukaku and made the striker the second most expensive transfer in British football history, behind only Paul Pogba.

Mourinho suggested Lukaku’s Premier League experience and his personal relationship with the player from their time together at Chelsea were the primary reasons United sought to buy the Belgium international, the club also having been strongly linked with a deal for Antoine Griezmann before Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban nixed the Frenchman’s exit.

Tottenham to reward Kieran Trippier with new five-year deal and will now consider selling Kyle Walker

Tottenham are ready to offer a new five year contract to right-back Kieran Trippier.

The England international pushed his way into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans to such an extent last season that Tottenham are willing to sell Kyle Walker for the right price.

Manchester City remain keen on Walker though the £40m-plus asking price remains the obvious hurdle.

Trippier, who had interest from Everton this year, has also earned his call-up into Gareth Southgate’s England starting line-up and is expected to make a bigger impact next season.

The 26-year-old is already contracted until 2020 though is ready to sign the new deal when he returns from holiday.

Tottenham have an interest in Porto’s Ricardo Pereira but are weighing up other options also should Walker depart.

A move for Everton’s Ross Barkley remains unlikely at this stage, particularly with the Goodison Park club’s current high valuation at around £50m for the 23-year-old who has one year left on his contract.

Everton, meanwhile, will announce the signing of Sandro Ramirez from Malaga on Thursday. Everton scouts have also checked on Corinthians left-back Guilherme Arana.

7 REASONS WHY CRISTIANO WILL NEVER LEAVE REAL MADRID THIS SUMMER. 

1. *It’s all a PR Gimmick*: Ronaldo owes taxes, that is true. The tax man does not chase people for fun. They know if they are found to be false, the revenue service will be fined for damages which will be huge. Ronaldo owes taxes on his image rights, which he keeps in an offshore account. Unlike in Africa where people can go away with tax monies, in Europe and America, tax evasion is a big crime, which is liable for conviction. Portugal is on the brink of making history. The confeds have began in Russia, Ronaldo has just annihilated Gigi Buffon’s Juve, and goes to this tourney with his head high. Then the tax man comes in to smear his image. Every body begins to talk about how bad an example Ronaldo is.. Remember, in Spain they already see him as delinquent. This scandal will just affect his concentration in Russia. So what should we do, was the question. Divert attention from your tax issue. Get everyone talk about something else than your negligence to pay tax. Let’s find an agenda that can last for days. Okay, Let’s say you are fed up and want to leave Real. Don’t say it yourself, get your close pals to say it, so that tomorrow you can easily say you never said that. It’s almost summer and bad bad news for Real MADRID will sell. Let’s do it. No one will talk about you evading tax. So let’s get Nuno Luz, one of your good friends who reports for A Bola, a renowned Portuguese Sports Daily to start this, let them talk about your move while you focus and make history with our beloved Portugal. Guys that’s the plot. Ronaldo is too wise to leave Real at this stage

2. *Cristiano Jr:* Ronaldo’s son is in basic school in spain. And he also plays in one of the local teams. Last season he won the pichichi for his age group and his team also won their league. The little boy is been groomed to do far greater than his illustrious dad. Ronaldo has no plans to move him abroad and mess up his education. Besides Ronaldo is the type who always likes to have his son around.  The boy is under the car of Delores Aveira, Ronaldo’s mum who  lives in Madrid and loves the city. Ronaldo been a mummy’s boy will not like to just ignore his mum and move out

.  3. *Georgina Rodriguez:* The name mentioned is Ronaldo’s girlfriend who he intends to marry. Ronaldo is a play boy but that was in the past. He is now a father and 32 years. He intends to settle soon and live with his wife and kids. His girlfriend is Spanish and lives in Madrid. Like Ronaldo’s mum, she also loves the City as she works there too as a model. Ronaldo would have it tough convincing his girlfriend to move to another country
4. *Ronaldo’s Friends:* There are these four guys who you will always find Ronaldo with when he is off the field. One of them is a morrocan UFC fighter. These guys all live in Madrid. They are Ronaldo’s musketeers. Ronaldo lives his life outside football with these guys. They manage some of his businesses for him   Ronaldo loves his friends and he knows Madrid is the best city for their relationship to grow. A move outside Madrid will mean he taking them along or coming to Spain every now and then to spend time with his friends. That will be a costly decision for Ronnie..

5. *The Real Madrid Project*- Real Madrid is embarking on a serious project with Cristiano the leader of this. Real intends to dominate European Football for a decade and they have spelt it out clearly to Commander Ronaldo who is happy to lead the park. Real Madrid is on course to winning 3 more trophies before end of 2017, and Museu CR7, Ronaldo’s Famous Museum cannot afford to let these trophies slip by. Furthermore, there is no team in Europe at the moment as stable as Real Madrid. Real is every footballers ultimate dream and As ambitious as Ronaldo is, he would like to remain at Real to win more trophies

6. *The Allure of The Ballon D’or:* Ronaldo is not a today’s footballer. He understands the politics in the beautiful game. If you want to win a Ballon D’or or appear on a FIFA Best 11 podium, you should either play for Real or Barca. What didn’t Wesley Sneijder do in 2010, or Arjen Robben in 2013, or Manuel Neuer in 2014. Their fault is simple, they don’t play for Real or Barca. Ronaldo is obsessed with winning more Ballon D’ors and he knows any other team apart from Real will mean he has a slim chance. He also knows leaving Real will make Messi the main winner for years to come considering the fact that the Argentine is younger younger and Real will pick another super star to market. Football is no longer what you do on the pitch but also about personality branding. Players like Ozil, Di Maria have had a reduction in their brands since they left Real and Ronaldo is fully aware of this. He knows his relationship with Real is a marriage set up in heaven. He can’t afford to lose the support of Real Madrid to his brand

7. *Zidane, Marcelo, Benzema and Ramos:* it’s true that Ronaldo won’t have Pepe and Coentrao in Real this season. But I know he has gotten used to their absence this season. But how can Ronaldo cope without Marcelo. The Brazilian is Ronaldo’s favorite accomplice. His forays forward creates space for Ronaldo which enables him enter the box and cause havoc. Then there is Benzema. Who plays as if he was made to play for Ronaldo. Leave Real and see if you will get a selfless striker like Karim. Sergio Ramos is another personality Ronaldo admires so much. When we won the Decima, Ramos made a statement which made Ronaldo to love him so much, he said ” God Bless Cristiano Ronaldo, and the womb that bore him”. Also Zidane has become more than a coach to Ronaldo, he has become his career advisor. Ronaldo reveres Zidane so much. So far Zidane is the only coach to have successfully convinced the Portuguese to rest in some less important games. Ronaldo is known to have praised Zidane’s management of him so far far and he plans to work for a long time with.

.     Guys Cristiano has never said he wants to quit Real, the guys are selling their newspapers. Give it some few days and this will all blow out. This article is to get you guys to relax and know that out star man is gonna stay. Thanks for reading
