'PSG has not yet received an offer for Neymar'
Although Neymar is always explicitly linked to Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain has not received a concrete offer for the Brazilian attacker this summer. FC Barcelona had previously shown interest in the 26-year-old attacker, but after engaging several intermediaries, the Catalans decided not to come. Real Madrid would be preparing a bid in the background, offering James Rodríguez or Gareth Bale as trading players. (Source: Le Parisien )

"Neymar can earn 40 million a year at Real"
The sounds of a switch from Neymar to Real Madrid are becoming more concrete, if we have to believe the Spanish media. Sport writes that Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez wants to make serious work of the 26-year-old Brazilian, who is in conflict with his employer Paris Saint-Germain. The preses of Real would have already made a contract offer to Neymar with a duration of five years and an annual salary of allegedly 40 million euros net per year. With that, he would become the highest paid footballer in the world after the Lionel Messi. (Source: Sport )

"Negotiations EL Khayati and ADO solid"
The negotiations between Abdenasser El Khayati and ADO Den Haag about the dissolution of the contract are stuck. That is what De Telegraaf writes. The mainstay of the Hague Premier League can make a lucrative transfer to SC Qatar, but in the Middle East it is not common to pay high transfer fees for players. That is why El Khayati has to buy out his contract in The Hague from his own pocket. ADO, however, is asking the attacker for a million, who for the time being refuses to add water to the wine.

"AS Roma wants to rent expensive Sánchez from United"
Manchester United is in his stomach with Alexis Sánchez. The 30-year-old Chilean weighs heavily on the salary record of the English record champion with a weekly salary of more than half a million euros, but rarely comes into action in the team of coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. That is why a sale or rental can be discussed by United. AS Roma is said to be responding to that call and wants to rent Sánchez. The only question is whether the Italians can cough up (a large part of) the salary. (Source: The Telegraph )

'Van de Beek only to Real Madrid in 2020'
The rumor mill around Donny van de Beek keeps running fast. Now the Spanish El Mundo Deportivo is reporting a new turn in the transfer saga. It is becoming increasingly plausible that the 22-year-old midfielder will only make the move to Madrid in 2020, because 'De Koninklijke' first wants to sell his stars Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez before Van de Beek is captured. Real spent over 300 million euros in this transfer period on new players. AS reported yesterday that Neymar is still preferring to be contracted over the Ajax player. (Source: El Mundo Deportivo )

'Van Bommel is aiming for Ribéry'
A very remarkable rumor from the German Bild . PSV coach Mark van Bommel is said to have focused his attention on Franck Ribéry. The 36-year-old Frenchman is currently clubless and knows Van Bommel from their period at Bayern Munich. According to the AD , the interest is correct, but attracting the offside player is currently not (financially) feasible. Van Bommel and Ribéry played together in southern Germany between 2007 and 2010.

"Bayern ends up with Bergwijn again"
No Leroy Sané (injured) and no Hakim Ziyech (new contract with Ajax). Bayern Munich must remove two targets from the wish list and therefore the Germans would again be interested in Steven Bergwijn. According to Bild, the PSV player must cost around 40 million euros. The 21-year-old attacker still has a contract until mid 2022 in Eindhoven.

Pochettino: "Big mistake to close the transfer market already"
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino thinks it is impossible that the transfer market in the Premier League has already been closed, unlike in other European competitions. The Argentinian now fears that he will no longer be able to accommodate the possible departure of important players. "We are now at a disadvantage compared to other European clubs. They have 20 days extra to attract players. It is a big mistake that the Premier League will allow this," says Pochettino. "This way we give other clubs the chance to cause confusion. If we didn't compete against these teams in the Champions League, it would have been fine."

Ajax also extends with Ziyech
Ajax also succeeds in extending the contract of Hakim Ziyech. The left leg is signing for one year and is now in Amsterdam until mid-2022. The 26-year-old Ziyech came over from FC Twente in 2016 and grew to be a defining player at Ajax. There were also rumors this summer that Ziyech would leave Ajax, but that does not seem to happen. The international of Morocco, which is said to earn around 4 million euros per year, has played 133 official duels for Ajax so far and scored 42 times.

Diego Palacios, who was rented by Willem II from Aucas FC last season, seemed to make a remarkable transfer to FC Barcelona, but now opts for the American Major League Soccer. An important reason for the Ecuadorian is to attract Junior Firpo, also a left back.
