Tuchel wants Dembélé in Neymar move (AS)

Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel is pushing to get 22-year-old forward Ousmane Dembélé as part of the package from FC Barcelona for Neymar:

According to le10sport, Paris Saint-Germain head coach Thomas Tuchel wants Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele included in any deal for wantaway star Neymar. Neymar has been linked with a return to LaLiga champions Barcelona, as well as Real Madrid before the European transfer window shuts.

Having already splashed the cash on Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong, Barca are unable to meet PSG’s demands in cash, so players and a sum of money has been mooted. Philippe Coutinho is one played reportedly in the mix to move to PSG, though Tuchel wants to reunite with former Borussia Dortmund star Dembele.

With the bidding strictly between Barca and Real Madrid, PSG certainly will have its choice of quality players and mountains of cash to choose from if it deals Neymar.

Bale kills deal for Neymar (The Mirror)

Gareth Bale has reportedly killed a potential deal for Neymar that would have included James Rodriguez and €100 million:

Gareth Bale has reportedly refused to be part of any deal that sees Neymar join Real Madrid from Paris Saint-Germain. The Welshman is not in Zinedine Zidane’s plans at the Bernabeu next season and Los Blancos are keen to offload him before the European transfer window shuts on September 2.

According to Sport, Real have offered Bale and James Rodriguez plus €100million to PSG in exchange for Neymar - but Bale is flat-out refusing to leave. Real are finding it difficult to offload Bale, mainly due to the £600,000-a-week wages he earns in the Spanish capital.

Bale, of course, has been linked with Bayern Munich, but it is clear that he needs to get out of Madrid before there is a riot.

Bayern Munich is reportedly taking a close look at Borussia Monchengladbach’s Michael Cuisance:

Michael Cuisance is considered one of the biggest midfielder talents in the Bundesliga - but does not regularly come to Borussia Mönchengladbach to the train and wants to leave the club. According to a report from Bild, FC Bayern is interested in the 19-year-old Frenchman. However, there was not yet an official offer from Munich, as Gladbach manager Max Eberl explains: “I also heard of it, but there was not an offer so far.”

Cuisance moved in the summer of 2017 from the AS Nancy to the Lower Rhine and knew how to convince in his debut season. In the past season, however, his development stalled, the French U19 international came in the league only eleven missions.

Bayern Munich is allegedly keeping an eye on Angers winger Jeff Reine-Adélaïde. Lyon and AS Monaco have also been linked to Reine-Adélaïde as well:

On Friday, at Groupama Stadium, Lyon will host Angers, and it is still unclear which of the two clubs will own Jeff Reine-Adelaide (21 years old) that evening. The international, who scored a decisive goal and pass on Saturday against Bordeaux (3-1), has been in the sights of several clubs for many weeks, including Monaco, Lyon and more recently Bayern Munich.

M’Gladbach enters the fray for Philipp Max (Sport1)

FC Augsburg left-back extraordinaire Philipp Max has been getting a lot of looks during this transfer window and now it appears Borussia Monchengladbach might be willing to jump into the mix:

Philipp Max wants to leave FC Augsburg. The 25-year-old left-back is currently recovering from an ankle injury — his departure from Augsburg has been in the air for weeks. Now Borussia Mönchengladbach is showing interest in Max. According to Bild, BMG sports director Max Eberl is working on the personnel question.

In connection with Borussia’s DFB Cup match against SV Sandhausen, Eberl already announced that Gladbach has not yet finalized its plans for the season. Max could be an alternative to Algerian Ramy Bensebaini. The 24-year-old is under contract with FC Rennes and should probably cost significantly less than Max. Gladbach is said to have already submitted a first offer for Bensebaini.

Previously PSG and FC Barcelona were among the clubs said to be looking at Max earlier this summer. kicker, however, is reporting that Bensebaini’s move to M’Gladbach is “imminent.”

Eriksen set to get more rich (Daily Mail)

Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen has been linked to Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Juventus among others, but the Spurs are trying to retain the Denmark international by upping his salary:

Tottenham are willing to more than double Christian Eriksen’s wages to secure their playmaker’s long-term future. But there are concerns that even that may not be enough to persuade the Denmark star to sign a new deal after he made it clear that money won’t be the only consideration when it comes to making his decision. Spurs are desperate to extend Eriksen’s contract and are willing to offer the midfielder close to £200,000 a week — more than double his current £80,000.
