LaLiga to file COMPLAINT over Mbappe's new PSG deal, Gundogan transfer LATEST, Perisic to Spurs – updates

May 22, 2022

LALIGA have blasted Kylian Mbappe's stunning PSG U-turn as "scandalous" and will file a complaint to Uefa.

The superstar forward, 23, looked on course to sign for Real Madrid as a free agent this summer.

But Mbappe has decided to stay put at the Ligue 1 champs and has signed a three-year contract at the Parc des Princes worth a whopping £1.6million-per-week AFTER tax – and £500m overall including a £250m signing-on bonus fee.

Meanwhile, Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is reportedly on the verge of becoming Newcastle's first summer signing.

And Tottenham are reportedly ready to nab £70m Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez from under the noses of Arsenal.

    Ham Scam twitch

    EXCLUSIVE: West Ham will step up interest in £25million-rated Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca, writes DAN KING.

    But if rival bids from the likes of Newcastle push the price up, the Hammers may turn their focus to Torino captain Andrea Belotti.

    Scamacca, 23 and 6ft 4in tall, is a man in demand thanks to a breakout Serie A campaign that has earned him his first senior caps for Italy.

    He has scored 16 goals in 35 league matches but may well have played his final game for Sassuolo.

    Opponents AC Milan and city rivals Inter are among the host of clubs considering a summer move for Scamacca.

    He would cost at least £25m and Premier League interest could drive the asking price far higher.

    Clarets want £40M for Pope

    EXCLUSIVE: Burnley are asking a staggering £40million for keeper Nick Pope — whether they stay in the Premier League or not, writes ALAN NIXON.

    Pope, 30, will be a wanted man this summer and Fulham are keen, with a potential three-year contract on offer.

    But the Clarets want a huge fee for the England ace.

    As SunSport revealed earlier this year, Fulham have been eyeing Pope for a while, while West Ham have also been linked.

    But the clubs had hoped to pay closer to £20m – especially with Burnley staring at relegation.

    Fulham also want to talk veteran Nemanja Matic into staying in the Prem after he leaves Manchester United.

    Cottagers want Matic talks

    EXCLUSIVE: Fulham want to talk veteran Nemanja Matic into staying in the Prem after he leaves Manchester United, writes ALAN NIXON.

    The Championship winners are keen to bring the ex-Chelsea midfielder back to London.

    Matic, 33, has played a key role at United lately and is still very capable at the top level.

    But he is choosing to move on rather than be part of Erik ten Hag’s revolution.

    Foreign interest in Matic is great but he could get a deal that works for him at Fulham and can slot back into life in London, after two great spells with the Blues.

    Matic revealed he would leave United last month in a lengthy statement on social media.

    Aaron eyes new Utd contract

    EXCLUSIVE: Aaron Wan-Bissaka wants a new deal at United — but has been told to wait on Erik ten Hag’s verdict on his future, writes ALAN NIXON.

    The right-back is out of contract in two years.

    United blocked recent inquiries for him, prompting AWB’s team to ask for a long-term deal instead.

    Crystal Palace have been linked with re-signing their academy star, but Wan-Bissaka is on more than the Eagles usually pay.

    Even a loan return to Selhurst Park would be difficult to sort due to his current wages.

    Incoming boss Ten Hag will pass judgement on the current squad, with United expected to make a number of changes this summer.

    Lampard keen to pay the Levi

    EXCLUSIVE: Everton boss Frank Lampard is plotting a move for Chelsea’s brilliant young centre-half Levi Colwill, writes ALAN NIXON.

    Lampard hopes his old club help him out with a loan agreement for the classy defender, 19, who was a key part of Huddersfield’s push to the play-off final.

    The Toffees’ top spies have watched elegant Colwill, who was briefly under Lamps’ wing at Stamford Bridge.

    He is due to go back to Chelsea and may be needed for their first-team squad if it is drastically changed next season.

    But Everton want to offer him Prem football after staying up, which gives them a chance of success.

    Lampard was given Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori when he was boss at Derby and his relationships are still strong after his time in charge of Chelsea.

    Mbappe and PSG confirm massive Mbappe deal

    Kylian Mbappe and PSG have confirmed he's STAYING in a shock snub for Real Madrid that will earn him £500MILLION.

    The 23-year-old revealed the news about his future today instead of on Sunday morning on French TV channel TF1 as planned.

    PSG posted a short video of Mbappe standing on the roof of the Parc des Princes with the message: 'Our history is written… This is Paris'.

    The post racked up tens of thousands of likes within minutes of being posted as PSG fans went wild with the news.

    Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for 12 months, ever since he approached the final year of his contract with the Ligue 1 giants.

    He was on the cusp of joining Los Blancos prior to the 2021-22 season before a £137million bid fell through at the final hour.

    Chelsea 'obvious match for Pogba'

    Paul Pogba has been rated Chelsea's perfect signing.

    The Manchester United midfielder, 29, is tipped for a summer free transfer to old club Juventus or PSG, with Real Madrid now outsiders.

    But ex-Red Devils striker Louis Saha believes Pogba would form a natural partnership with a more defensive France team-mate at Stamford Bridge.

    Fellow Frenchman Saha told Lord Ping: "Chelsea is the obvious match for Pogba because he loves to play with N’Golo Kante.

    "We always try to compare what he does with France and United and the ability of Kante makes Pogba play to another dimension.

    "Only Pogba can indicate where he wants to go, I’m just sad he hasn’t fulfilled his dream."

    Pogba has reportedly rejected joining United's neighbours City.

    Man City need all three points to secure the title – providing Liverpool win at home to Wolves.

    Whilst speaking to the Daily Mail, he said: “I think City will win — but I also think there will be a twist. It won’t be 5-0 and all singing and dancing.

    “It’s the 10-year anniversary of the 93:20, the Sergio Aguerooooo moment.

    “I don’t think we’ll get that level of drama, but I don’t think it’ll be straightforward.”

    He told the Daily Mail: “It is and it isn’t. At the start of the season, no one expected them to be here, fighting for fourth. 

    “But the way they’ve ended the season, you’d say they have failed. Arteta likes them to play a particular way.

    “But when you’re going into a north London derby with a top-four spot at stake, just manage the game! You don’t need to go out all guns blazing. 

    “It felt a little naive of Arsenal, what they did against Tottenham and then Newcastle, the last game of the season at a jumping St James’ Park. You’ve got to find another way to play.”
