Real Madrid identify Keylor Navas successor 

It is believed that the current Los Blancos goalkeeper, Keylor Navas is in his last year with the Spanish giants. Club president Florentino Perez is eyeing a more dynamic person between the posts with Zinedine Zidane being in agreement with the supremo. According to Don Balon, Real Madrid have earmarked Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga as the club's long-term custodian. 

The 22-year-old is considered as the future of Spain and is a highly rated goalkeeper. The academy graduate from Athletic Bilbao is in his final year of the contract and is expected to leave on a free transfer next summer. Kepa also fits in with Real Madrid's new philosophy of introducing young Spanish blood into the side which has yielded success in the recent past. 

Andre Gomes on Manchester United's radar 

The much talked about FC Barcelona midfielder has been linked with a move to Manchester United by Don Balon. Jose Mourinho is rumoured to be an admirer of his countryman and believes that Gomes can improve under his tutelage. The £35 million signing has failed to deliver the goods until now and has not yet impressed new Barcelona boss, Ernesto Valverde.
