TOP STORY: Real Madrid prep £250m Mbappe bid

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo has said Real Madrid are lining up a £250 million summer bid for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

A report by the newspaper claimed the striker is keen to move away from his current French club following a touchline altercation with manager Thomas Tuchel during the club's five-goal win over Montpellier on Saturday. The 21-year-old has long been linked with a move to Premier League club Liverpool, but now Madrid could be in pole position to secure the talented youngster's services.

To make matters worse for PSG, it is said that Mbappe also liked an Instagram post by Karim Benzema of him celebrating Madrid's recent 1-0 win over city rivals Atletico Madrid.

Tuchel has since said he was left saddened by Mbappe's unnecessary actions.

PAPER ROUND

Chelsea on lookout for a new 'keeper

Frank Lampard has reportedly told Chelsea's board of directors to start searching for a new goalkeeper as soon as possible, with a view to bringing a fresh face between the sticks at Stamford Bridge by June.

Spanish outlet Cope has made the claim after Kepa Arrizabalaga -- who signed for a world record £71m in 2018 from Athletico Bilbao -- was omitted from Blues' squad against Leicester on Saturday in the Premier League. Veteran goalkeeper Willy Caballero took Kepa's spot at the King Power Stadium.

Cope's report adds that Kepa may not start in goal again this season.

Beckham's Miami will try again for Cavani

MLS expansion club Inter Miami CF -- co-owned by David Beckham -- will once again try to go for Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani in the summer, according to L'Equipe.

Miami was one of the several suitors for the El Matador during the winter break but Cavani ultimately stayed put in Paris after a move to Atletico Madrid failed.

Atletico president Enrique Cerezo on Saturday called that collapse "shameful" and said that his struggling La Liga side "were not here to be robbed."

Sources have told ESPN that Atletico were unwilling to meet PSG 's €20 million asking price for Cavani. The player was also tied to a potential move to Chelsea and Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Miami remains in the hunt for a marquee player ahead of their first ever meaningful game in less than a month. The club has recently been linked with Mexican midfielder Rodolfo Pizarro, currently plying his trade at Monterrey.

Tap Ins

- Roy Hodgson has said Crystal Palace will add a bit more grease to their elbow during the summer transfer window after accepting the club fell short in its ambitions to sign players in January. Palace completed the transfer of just one player throughout January -- 28-year-old Cenk Tosun arrived on loan from Everton while a late move for Nathan Ferguson collapsed because of injury. Hodgson is out of contract at Selhurst Park this summer, and in an interview with The Standard he admitted powerful signings will have to be made this summer to ensure the club becomes a stronger outfit.

- Manchester United are reportedly prepared to rival any bid made by Chelsea for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho. Despite a reduced budget, the Standard has said that United's capture of Bruno Fernandes for £68million is proving no deterrent in their quest to tie teenager Sancho down to a contract at Old Trafford. The Sun has said that Dortmund's demands have put off Liverpool, but Chelsea are understood to be willing to pay at least £100million for Sancho -- a sum United are prepared to match.
