Transfer news LIVE! Mbappe to Real Madrid, Man Utd consider bids

We are almost halfway through the January transfer window and the market is gathering momentum amid a weekend of huge on-pitch action.

Kylian Mbappe’s future continues to be a major talking point with the Paris Saint-Germain striker undecided on his future and now reportedly offered a short-term contract to hold off Real Madrid’s interest.

Los Blancos are among the teams tipped to sign Erling Haaland and updates on the Borussia Dortmund hotshot’s next move continue to arrive thick and fast. Manchester City, Barcelona and Manchester United are also keen on the Norwegian.

Over at Old Trafford, Cristiano Ronaldo rumours are going nowhere while Eric Bailly is the latest Red Devil linked with a move away.

Tottenham look set to bolster their squad this month with Adama Traore on their radar and Tanguy Ndombele one of many ready to be moved on, for the right price.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are seeking defensive reinforcements amid an injury crisis at the back. A left-back to cover for the injured Ben Chilwell is a priority, as are new contracts for Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

Arsenal are also in the hunt this month, but their focus remains up top with Dusan Vlahovic a key target. A new central midfielder would be of use too, where the Gunners are very short of options.

Follow along for all the key market updates on this Saturday…

Eric Bailly is said to be the Rossoneri’s first-choice target despite his AFCON participation with Ivory Coast.

A loan transfer would be most likely with Manchester United described as open to such a deal, and Bailly’s close friendship with Milan ace Franck Kessie could help the deal along.
