Real Madrid have included a Man Utd star in a huge triple raid they are looking to make next summer, while Thursday’s Euro Paper Talk claims Newcastle backed out of a deal for a Valencia defender.
ANCELOTTI WANTS HUGE TRIPLE REAL DEAL
Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly intent on bringing three of the best players in the world to Real Madrid next summer.
Real will renew their interest in PSG’s Kylian Mbappe, having flirted with a big-money deal throughout this summer’s window.
The LaLiga giants were rebuffed in their efforts to sign the France forward, who will be available on a free transfer next year.
And the report from Marca adds that Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland and Manchester United playmaker Paul Pogba will also be targeted.
Haaland is rumoured to be keen on moving to Madrid, having previously been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.
The Norwegian will be available for €75million at the end of this season as part of a clause in his Dortmund contract.
As for Pogba, the Red Devils midfielder has been linked with a switch to the Bernabeu for the past two seasons.
The Frenchman’s contract, like Mbappe, will also expire in 2022 and he has not shown signs of penning a new deal.
It would appear that United may also be planning for the future, with a report on Thursday claiming that West Ham star Declan Rice could be Old Trafford bound next summer.
