Real Madrid transfer news: Perez to start Pulisic transfer tonight, Bale to help Dybala's signing and more - 26th September 2017
Bale's exit to fund Dybala's transfer
Gareth Bale seems to be the first name on the list of players Real Madrid will sell next season and according to Don Balon, Los Blancos will replace the Welshman with Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.
Bale has been an unwanted figure at Bernabeu this season with the sudden rise in form of both Marco Asensio and Isco.
Manager Zinedine Zidane has backed Bale to start in recent matches, however, club President Florentino Perez is pushing for at least 2 marquee signings next summer.
Dybala along with Eden Hazard and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are the key summer targets for Real Madrid with Antoine Griezmann being linked with a move in last 24 hours.
As for Gareth Bale, Manchester United remain interested in the signing the dazzling winger and will make a £70million move next summer which will most likely be accepted by the Spanish Champions.
Perez will discuss Pulisic move tonight
Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez will start the negotiations for a possible transfer move for Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic, according to reports from Kicker.
Perez is eager to seal at least 2 big signings next season and is eying Pulisic as one of the possible targets.
Don Balon believes Perez will let the Dortmund chiefs know about his wish to sign the American star and would look to secure a "first-to-sign" option for the crafty playmaker.
Reports also suggest that Perez is eying Pulisic's signing from a massive commercial purpose as Pulisic is the biggest name from America right now and the US market for European Football is increasing at a rapid rate.
Asensio's release clause will be €500million
Marco Asensio could soon sign a record contract with Real Madrid which will see the Spaniard have a €500million release clause added to his new deal.
Asensio has broken on the scene this season with few sublime performances and has forced his way into Zinedine Zidane's starting XI in La Liga and Champions League.
According to reports, Arsenal and Chelsea were interested in the Spaniard, however, Asensio was always confident of signing the new deal after sorting out the finer details between his agent and the club.
Real Madrid spent little over £3.5million to sign Asensio from Mallorca and then loaned him to Espanyol before using him as a first team player in the summer of 2016.
