"Mbappé never told us he wants to leave" — Monaco vice-president

Chelsea are keeping tabs on Gareth Bale's situation at Real Madrid with a view to moving for the £100m-rated forward, according to reports. Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has made his stance very clear that he wants a balanced squad, and this is why James Rodriguez was allowed to leave the club.

Monaco are in talks with Mbappe over the possibility of a new contract at Stade Louis II, and Vasilyev told reporters: "We're still in discussions with him, it's not a simple matter of money, it's more complicated".

It's suggested Bale is seen as more expendable than fellow "BBC" strike force members Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, while the opportunity to land Mbappe in a window of transfer madness may be seen as fleeting.

US, Japan, Australia Urge Binding Code for South China Sea
In 2016, an global court rejected China's bid to secure rights to more than 80 per cent of the South China Sea. As in past criticisms, they did not cite China by name.

Real Madrid, however, asked Monaco to lower the price in range of €150m + €30m add ons or €160 + €20m add ons. The Welshman was linked with us even when he made his high profile move to Real Madrid back in 2013.

Jose Mourinho has long been stating that he wants at least four signings this summer and has been linked with Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic. The Nerazzurri, however, aren't willing to let the Croatian leave and this might lead to Manchester United ending their pursuit for the 28-year-old. It's not only about him, all the young players who were here last year and had a great season, Fabinho, Lemar, Kylian, we're talking about them joining other clubs, but they stay focused.

Transfers are interesting, and in Zidane's words, "Until Aug. 31, anything can happen".
