Spain begin Euro 2020

Spain will start their Euro 2020 campaign on Monday evening as they take on Sweden in their group clash in Seville.

Sergio Busquets

La Roja captain Sergio Busquets is ruled out due to a positive coronavirus test that means he is still self-isolating while Dejan Kulusevski and Mattias Svanberg are both out for Sweden due to positive Covid tests.

Slovakia and Poland – the other two nations in the group – go head-to-head earlier on Monday.

Madrid’s Mbappe plan

Real Madrid news on Monday sees the return of the links to Paris Saint-Germain superstar attacker Kylian Mbappe with Diario AS outlining their plan to sign him.

However, there is the reality that Madrid need to offload a series of players in order to make room in the wage bill to land the striker.

Kylian Mbappe

Exits are planned for Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, Raphael Varane, Marcelo, Alvaro Odriozola, Isco, Mariano Diaz, Luka Jovic and Dani Ceballos – which the reports claim would free up €126m which would allow the Mbappe deal to happen.
