Welcome to Wednesday’s round-up of all of the latest transfer news and rumours.

Real Talk 👏

Kylian Mbappé has spoken publicly about his future intentions after rumours relating to Real Madrid ramped up and insisted to the club’s social media channels that his ‘biggest dream’ is to win the Champions League with PSG, where he is out of contract next summer.

Spurs are not only plotting to keep captain Harry Kane, per The Telegraph, but are even prepared to spend big to support him in attack and are willing to part with up to £50 million for Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahović, who scored 21 goals last season.

Manchester City are in talks with Ederson, John Stones and Phil Foden over contract extensions, say The Athletic, while they also want to reward PFA Player of the Year Rúben Dias with a pay rise just a year after joining and are hopeful about a new deal for Raheem Sterling before the season starts.

According to El Partidazo del COPE, Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal is set to ink a new deal which will tie him to the club until the summer of 2024.

Ajax director Marc Overmars has also opened up on the speculation around goalkeeper Andre Onana, revealing that there has been no contact from Lyon for a week and that he ‘hasn’t had any contact with Arsenal’ about him, per Voetbal International.

In Germany, Bild say that Aston Villa have submitted a £25m bid for Bayer Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey, but the club are holding out for £10m more.

Fake News 😡

Arsenal are apparently keen to insert Hector Bellerín into a deal with Inter to try to tempt striker Lautaro Martínez to London, say Football Insider.

Julian Brandt has also given a very clear indication that there is little to the suggestions in Serie A that Milan and Lazio want him.

“I’ve never fed these rumours, they come from newspapers in Italy,” he said. “I’ve never shown any intention to leave. I don’t think I’ll play anywhere else this year.”

What you missed yesterday 👇

Marko Pjaca has left Juventus for his fifth loan spell in the last five years but is staying local – after moving across the city to join Torino.

Meanwhile, Chelsea swooped to sign long-serving Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli as cover on a two-year deal.
