Gareth Bale has told his Wales colleagues he wants to stay at Real Madrid for at least one more season. But Chelsea are poised to move in.

Manchester United would love Ronaldo back but, as long predicted by this column, have other priorities in team building this summer with targets such as Mats Hummels, Paul Pogba and Dani Alves.

Harry Kane, the new sensation of English football, is poised to get his THIRD new contract in a year.
Kane is set to see himself rise to the Premier League platinum tier of a near six figure a week salary.
