Paris Saint-Germain no longer consider Neymar untouchable in the face of a possible huge offer from Real Madrid for the Brazil superstar, reports Mundo Deportivo .

The only PSG player considered off-limits by the Ligue 1 winners is teenage star Kylian Mbappe.
Willian still wants to quit Chelsea despite Sarri appointment
Chelsea attacker Willian still wants to depart the club this summer, despite the appointment of Maurizio Sarri, reports the Sun .
Willian fell out with previous Blues boss Antonio Conte, so the club’s officials hoped Sarri’s hiring and playing philosophy would tempt the winger to stay.

Donnarumma on Chelsea three-man shortlist

Milan are interested in Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata, and while it’s possible both players will switch teams, it is unlikely it will be done in a straight swap.
Navas willing to battle Courtois
Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas is willing to stay and fight for his place amid the likely arrival of Thibaut Courtois, reports AS .
While Navas has lost two major allies in former manager Zinedine Zidane and goalkeeping coach Luis Llopis, the Costa Rica international has no plans to ask for a transfer.
