James Rodriguez wants his future at Real Madrid resolved by tomorrow.
The Colombia international wants to leave the Bernabeu this summer in search of regular first-team football next season.
And Spanish outlet Diario Gol claim Rodriguez does not want to travel with the Real squad for their pre-season tour of the USA.
It is said he could go off like ‘a bomb’ in the La Liga champions’ dressing rooms if his wishes to leave the club are not granted.
Express Sport understands he could be on his way to Manchester United with Jose Mourinho keen to capitalise on the uncertainty surrounding his future.
Neymar has urged Barcelona to sign Brazil team-mate Paulinho.
“Paulinho is a friend that I have in football,” Neymar told Spanish newspaper AS.
“I want him to sign for Barca because with a player like him, who is a friend too, we are going to win a lot.”
The Catalan giants have already had a £17million bid for Paulinho rejected, but are apparently considering an improved offer.
Atletico Madrid’s move for Chelsea striker Diego Costa could still be on despite their transfer ban.
The Blues are ready to sell the Spain international after Antonio Conte told him via text that he is no longer part of his plans.
But Spanish outlet AS claim the La Liga giants are planning a deal with Besiktas that would see him go on loan to the Turkish side for six months.
Atletico are banned from registering players until the New Year, but a free to buy them in this summer’s transfer window.
