Transfer gossip: Real want Mbappe and Bellingham while Spurs star mulls over huge Saudi offer
Real Madrid intend to sign both Jude Bellingham and Kylian Mbappe this summer, while the Saudis offer Hugo Lloris a lucrative escape from Spurs…
REAL RELAUNCH MBAPPE BID
Real Madrid have huge plans for the summer if The Telegraph are to be believed…
We know they want Jude Bellingham. And, as things stand, they’ll probably get him while they remain in pole position to land the Borussia Dortmund midfielder following Liverpool’s withdrawal from the race. Real have been to Germany a couple of times to meet the 19-year-old and convince him of their intention to make a move happen.
Dortmund are going to make a massive profit.
They might also have dangled before Bellingham a carrot in the shape of Kylian Mbappe. Apparently, Real want both of the young superstars this summer.
Real appear to have forgiven Mbappe after they were led up the garden path last summer before he committed again to PSG. But the Spaniards see an opportunity amid the chaos in Paris and they want to try again for the France striker.
PSG are desperate to build a new team around Mbappe but it seems he might only have one year remaining on the renewal he signed last summer, with the final 12 months to 2025 just an option. If Mbappe is entering the last year of his deal, and Real slap a huge offer on the table, PSG may be minded to sell.

LLORIS TO TRIPLE SALARY WITH SAUDI SWITCH
The Parisians are almost certain to lose Lionel Messi, with the Argentina star mulling over a mind-blowing offer from Saudi Arabia, where scouting seems to extend to a list of World Cup-winning captains.
Because next on that list is Hugo Lloris, who The Times reports has also received a mega-money offer to move to the Saudi Pro League.
The Tottenham keeper is due to enter the final year of his contract this summer but the story goes that Lloris has been offered triple his current salary to move to Saudi. The 36-year-old is currently sidelined with a thigh injury which means he might have played his last game for Spurs in which he conceded five at Newcastle before being subbed at half-time.
NAPOLI INCREASE OSIMHEN DEMANDS
If Victor Osimhen’s price keeps rising, it might only be the Saudis who can afford to buy him…
The Nigerian striker has been on fire this season, scoring 23 goals and laying on four more in 28 appearances while Napoli cantered to the Serie A title.
Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Chelsea all desperately need centre-forwards but Napoli are doing their best to price him out of their reach. According to Il Matino, the Scudetto winners’ valuation of the 24-year-old has risen to €160million – around £139million.
