Goal takes a look at the biggest transfer stories from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond ahead of the opening of the summer window

MILAN IN €60M MORATA BID

AC Milan will offer €60 million to Real Madrid for striker Alvaro Morata.
The Spanish striker has apparently already agreed to join the Serie A club on an €8m-a-season contract, and Milan will now put the sizeable transfer bid to Real Madrid after the Champions League final.

LINDELOF TO COST MAN UTD £52M

Manchester United have been told they will need to splash €60 million (£52m) to sign Benfica defender Victor Lindelof.
Jose Mourinho's men were believed to be close to signing the Swedish defender in the January transfer market but opted to wait until the summer to pursue the deal.
However, Benfica are insisting that United activate his contract clause if they want to sign him ahead of 2017-18, which could lead to a protracted transfer saga should they be unwilling to spend so much.

WENGER WARNED OVER TRANSFERS

Arsene Wenger will be warned to stop "dithering" over transfers by Arsenal's board today ahead of expected confirmation of his contract extension at the club.
Missing out on Gonzalo Higuain in 2013 will be highlighted as an example when the Arsenal manager failed to act decisively on transfers.
Malaga pair Sandro Ramirez and Pablo Fornals are reportedly two of the Gunners' targets this summer, plus Wenger must deal with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez having just 12 months left on their lucrative contracts.

WOLFSBURG TO SIGN US STAR BROOKS

Wolfsburg are set to complete their first transfer of the summer window by signing Hertha Berlin and USA defender John Brooks.
The German club survived relegation from the top flight by winning this weekend's play off against Eintracht Braunschweig and are looking to rebuild their squad in the hopes of a much-improved 2017-18.
Buying Brooks for £17m would break the current record transfer for a USA player, with Jozy Altidore's £13m move to Sunderland currently the highest paid.

CITY FACE BATTLE FOR MENDY

Manchester City face stiff competition from a number of their Premier League rivals in their bid to sign Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy.
Chelsea and Liverpool have both accelerated their interest in recent days while Manchester United are also monitoring developments.
Full-back Mendy is keen to move to England this summer, though Barcelona are also keen on the 22-year-old.

MAN UTD MONITORING BALE

Manchester United are keeping an eye on Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale.
Should the 27-year-old not start the Champions League final on Saturday, the Red Devils hope that will be an indication that Bale will be for sale this summer.

HODGSON WANTS PALACE JOB

Former England manager Roy Hodgson hopes to succeed Sam Allardyce at Crystal Palace.
The ex-Liverpool boss has been out of management since stepping down following the Three Lions' last-16 exit at Euro 2016.

ARSENAL PUSH FOR ALEXIS & OZIL

Arsenal will make a final push to keep Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
The Gunners hope the FA Cup triumph and improved salaries will convince the star duo to say, with the club prepared to offer them wages totalling more than £30 million combined.

MAN UTD LEAD ROSE HUNT

Manchester United are leading the chase for Tottenham full-back Danny Rose.
The England international has also been linked with Manchester City, but they are now closing in on a deal for Monaco's Benjamin Mendy.

WENGER PROMISED £100M

Arsene Wenger will be handed at least £100 million to spend in the summer transfer window if he signs a new contract at Arsenal.
The Frenchman is yet to reveal what his future holds, but is expected to stay on and push for new recruits after missing out on Champions League qualification this season.

CHELSEA CONSIDER BOATENG DEAL

Chelsea have asked about the potential availability of Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng.
The Blues have made Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk their top defensive target, but are prepared to explore other options.

HAMMERS TO MAKE PICKFORD OFFER

West Ham are desperate to add Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, and will offer Adrian as a makeweight.
The Hammers would need to pay around £17m to make the deal happen, with Adrian valued at around £8m.

HERRERA TO REJECT BARCA

Ander Herrera will reject the advances of Barcelona to commit his future to Manchester United.
New Barca manager Ernesto Valverde is keen to sign Herrera, whom he worked with at Athletic Bilbao, but the midfielder will instead sign fresh terms with the Red Devils.

BAYERN EYE WILLIAN BID

Bayern Munich are interested in signing Willian from Chelsea.
The Bavarian giants are keen to refresh their forward line, but Willian would cost around €50 million, which would make him the most expensive player in Bayern's history.

DE GEA OUT, VARANE IN

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has set Real Madrid an ultimatum regarding their pursuit of David De Gea, according to Diariogol , with the Portuguese demanding Raphael Varane as part of any deal.
Varane is seen as the natural successor to Sergio Ramos at the Santiago Bernabeu and the Spanish capital club have a big decision to make on who they deem more important to their long-term future.

WENGER TO SIGN FOR TWO YEARS

Arsene Wenger will put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with Arsenal.
It is said that the club's board are meeting on Monday to finalise the contract offer and Wenger's extension should be announced before the end of the week.

CHELSEA PLAN £200M SUMMER SPREE

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been handed £200 million to spend on new signings this summer.
The Blues boss is keen to bolster his squad in a number of positions, with Virgil van Dijk, Romelu Lukaku and Tiemoue Bakayoko among his top targets.

MAN CITY MAKE €130M MBAPPE BID

Manchester City have made a world record €130 million (£114m) bid for Monaco teenager Kylian Mbappe.
The 18-year-old has been in sensational form for Monaco this season, helping them win Ligue 1 with 15 goals in 29 games. City face stiff competition for his signature, with Real Madrid reported to have matched their bid for the France international.

  • Diego Simeone insists Barcelona are still not as good as Real Madrid

    Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists LaLiga leaders Barcelona are still not as good as Real Madrid.

    Barcelona visit Atletico's new Wanda Metropolitano home for the first time on Saturday night with a five-point lead over second-placed Sevilla.

    Ernesto Valverde's table-toppers have opened their campaign with seven straight wins.

    Barcelona are six points clear of fourth-placed Atletico and seven ahead of champions Real, who have made a stuttering start to the season.

    But Atletico boss Simeone told a pre-match press conference: "Barcelona are one of the best teams in the world, but Real Madrid are better now.
    "(Barca) Have reinvented themselves after the departure of Neymar. They do not stop wanting to win. They have a winning gene, they do not get tired."

    Atletico have not beaten Barcelona in 14 league games - a run stretching back to February 2010.

    Simeone has lost eight of his 11 league games since his appointment in December 2011, but he insists Atletico have always done themselves justice in the fixture.

    "We have not beaten Barcelona in the league, but we've always played well against them," Simeone said.
    "We tied the most important one, that was the one that gave us LaLiga (in 2013-14) and we have knocked them out twice in the Champions League. They did not beat us by chance, they are very good. But we have been more forceful in the Champions League and let's hope we can end that run in LaLiga."

    Barcelona are averaging over three goals a game in LaLiga this season and Lionel Messi has tormented Atletico down the years.

    Messi has scored 27 goals in 34 games against the Rojiblancos and fired Argentina into the World Cup finals in midweek with a hat-trick in Ecuador.

    Fellow Argentinian Simeone said: "I watched the Argentina match. Messi had that night that all Argentines wanted and asked for. For some who did not believe in him, he proved that he is the best in the world."

    Atletico defenders Filipe Luis and Lucas Hernandez missed the goalless draw at Leganes before the international break, but both players have recovered from their hamstring injuries and are available.

    Barca pair Andries Iniesta and Luis Suarez are fit after niggles and boss Valverde told reporters: "We know how important the game is.

    "Atletico are candidates for the league title, they are tough to break down and score against. They defend as a unit and are disciplined. It is a big game and the Wanda Metropolitano will have a spectacular atmosphere."
