Real Madrid are lining up a move for Arsenal ace Bukayo Saka, Chelsea have drawn up an alternative plan in case they miss out on Jadon Sancho and PSG have made a £51m signing, all in the papers.
REAL MADRID CHASE SAKA
Real Madrid have identified Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka as a potential summer transfer target, claims a report in Spain.
Don Balon claim Real are watching the 18-year-old’s contract situation very closely and if he fails to pen a new deal the LaLiga giants are willing to put €30m on the table.
Arsenal though are reportedly confident of tying Saka down to a new long-term contract after his breakthrough into the first team this season.
According to Football.london Saka has not yet penned a new deal with Arsenal, but Mikel Arteta’s side are confident the youngster, whose deal expires next summer, will commit his long-term future to the Gunners.
