New Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti wants to sign Mohamed Salah if their move for Kylian Mbappe does not materialise.


Ancelotti has told Real Madrid president Florentino Perez he wants to sign Liverpool's Salah , reports Fichajes.

The Italian believes Los Blancos need another forward, with Salah seen as his back-up plan if they fail to land Paris Saint-Germain's Mbappe.

Madrid's financial situation is complicated, with the club not making any major signings in 2020-21 amid the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, but they appear determined to land a major forward this off-season.


- 90min reports that Manchester United's Jesse Lingard has emerged as a target for Spanish champions Atletico Madrid, having caught Diego Simeone's eye during his loan spell at West Ham United.

- Chelsea have shopped around striker Tammy Abraham and Arsenal are interested, according to The Telegraph.

- The Athletic believes Tottenham may make a move for Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini, although he has a £26 million release clause.

-  Poor relations between Spurs and Southampton, stemming from 2020's Pierre-Emile Hjobjerg deal, may scupper a proposed move for Danny Ings, according to Standard Sport.

- Newly promoted Brentford are set to splash a club record transfer fee of £13.5 million to land Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer, claims The Telegraph.
