Neymar met with Madrid representative

Neymar met with a representative from Real Madrid multiple times while recovering from his foot injury in Brazil, according to AS .

The Brazil star posted photos on his Instagram with teenage sensation Vinicius Junior, who has agreed to join Real Madrid and may link up with the club this summer.

Umtiti willing to depart Barcelona

Samuel Umtiti’s second season with Barcelona may be his last as he stands at an impasse over a new contract, according to  Diario Gol .

Umtiti is looking an annual salary of €14 million, which Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has balked at paying, with negotiations coming to a near stall.

As Umtiti has a €60M (£53M/$72M) release clause, the defender can get his desired contract elsewhere, with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain in the mix to land him.

Not to be caught unprepared, Barca are looking at Clement Lenglet and Matthijs de Ligt as replacements.

Valencia set Rodrigo price

La Liga side Valencia have set the price for striker Rodrigo at €60 million (£53M/$72M) according to Marca .

Manager Marcelino does not want to lose Rodrigo, but knows that the market forces may force his sale, with an incoming bid likely.

But while the club will not sell the player for anything less than the €60M, if it receives an offer that high, it will negotiate.

Wolves target Silva

Newly-promoted Wolves are looking to add AC Milan midfielder Andre Silva to their squad for their return to the Premier League, reports the Sun .

While Silva previously stated his desire to remain with Milan, Wolves are being advised by the forward’s agent, Jorge Mendes.

Manchester United chasing Varane

Manchester United are willing to table an offer of €70 million (£62M/$83M) in order to land defender Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, claims  Don Balon .

The Red Devils would be willing improve the defender’s contract if he agreed to a move, and he is intrigued by a chance to re-unite with former Madrid manager Jose Mourinho.

Real Madrid does not want to lose Varane but United may be willing to break the bank for a player they have long sought.
