Zinedine Zidane's Kylian Mbappe interest confirmed by Real Madrid president

Reports in France have suggested Real are prepared to make Mbappe the world's most expensive football surpassing the £89m Manchester United - who are also keeping tabs on the striker - paid for compatriot Paul Pogba.

Morata has been heavily linked with a move away from the Champions League winners after only 14 LaLiga stars under Zinedine Zidane last season.

A move for De Gea, for now it seems, is off the table though.

Perez confirmed that Ronaldo was very angry about the tax allegations he faced.

He also said: "We haven't spoken because we were on the deadline for [presidential] nominations and I wanted to be respectful, but I am convinced we will talk and we will solve it".

"I haven't spoken with Cristiano, I learned about it because of what came out in the newspapers".

Camille Cosby, 73, only attended one day of the trial with her husband. "I'm sorry it's causing everyone frustration". Cosby, 79, is accused of drugging and molesting a Temple University employee in 2004 at his home near Philadelphia.

Perez said on Monday that "as far as I know Cristiano has always met (his fiscal obligations)" and that "it all must be some sort of misunderstanding that will be cleared up quickly".

Ronaldo, 32, appears to be heading for the Real Madrid exit this summer following a high-profile tax dispute, and it had been claimed that Bayern were preparing to pursue the Portugal captain ahead of the 2017-18 campaign. We will wait until the tournament ends and then we will see the extent of everything that has been written. "We are happy. I read there is an agreement for €75million, but there is nothing".

His representatives Gestifute have denied the accusation, while his club has said it is "absolutely convinced that our player... will prove his total innocence in this process".

Thats that. From listening to the Pérez interview this is all just a stunt to get Ronaldo to avoid the tax penalty.

How could Man United's starting XI look if they land their transfer targets? "No one has made us a single offer; not for Cristiano Ronaldo, not for Alvaro Morata, not for James Rodriguez".
