Arsenal and Liverpool in the race for German midfielder; while Gareth Bale’s agent reveals his client price if Real Madrid decide to sell him.
4. Arsenal and Liverpool in race for German midfielder
Arsenal and Liverpool are all fighting for the signature of Schalke midfielder Max Meyer in the summer, Daily Star reports.
The 22-year-old midfielder, whose contract is due to expire in the summer, is also reportedly linked with Bayern Munich and Milan.
But the Premier League giants are now frontrunners in the battle for versatile player Meyer.
3. Gareth Bale worth at least as much as Neymar – Agent
Gareth Bale’s agent has claimed that the player’s transfer from Real Madrid will take a world-record fee.
Bale has been strongly linked with a Premier League return, with Manchester United said to be the winger’s destination.
However, former Tottenham star’s agent Jonathan Barnett insists that the forward is so expensive than any other player in the world of football.
“He’s worth at least the €222m (£200m) paid for Neymar. Gareth is very happy with Real Madrid. He loves Madrid,” Barnett told Tuttosport.
“Gareth doesn’t need Cristiano Ronaldo to leave. Bale is already a star at Real Madrid. I remember the pen Florentino Perez gave me, he’s a great gentleman, I always carry it with me.”
“Bale was close to signing for an Italian club, but Spurs didn’t accept the offer. He’s happy in Madrid now, although things can change quickly in football, however, I know that no Italian club can afford to buy him at this point.”
