We round up the front and back pages across Europe as Monday sees the transfer rumour mill crank into gear again.

Paris Saint-Germain may be heading for a tough rebuild that includes losing two of the world's best players.

While they won Ligue 1 once again, PSG fell short in the Champions League, exiting in the round of 16. Still, Thomas Tuchel has earned trust in Paris, signing a new contract in May.

He may have some massive work to do in the close-season, with Kylian Mbappé reportedly eyeing a move to Real Madrid, while Neymar is considering his options.

TOP STORY – MBAPPÉ WANTS MADRID MOVE

After a standout season, Mbappé is feeling undervalued at PSG and wants a move to Real Madrid, according to ABC.

The France international, who scored 39 goals in 2018-19, does not feel properly valued in Paris, the report said.

Mbappé has continually been linked with a move to Madrid, where his fellow Frenchman Zinedine Zidane returned to the helm late in the season.

There may be even further worries for PSG, too, with Neymar considering his options, according to Téléfoot.

ROUND-UP

- Gareth Bale is on his way out at the Santiago Bernabéu and Manchester United may be interested. According to the Mirror, United are ready to meet the attacker's wage demands, initially signing him on loan before holding on to him for a second season.

- Manchester United are also looking at potential replacements for Paul Pogba, who is linked with a move away. The Evening Standard report that United are considering Tottenham star Christian Eriksen and Monaco's Youri Tielemans, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Leicester City.

- Atlético Madrid are set to lose Antoine Griezmann and are looking at AC Milan's Suso to add some strength to their attack, according to Corriere dello Sport.

- United will need a bigger bid to land Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The Times report Palace rejected a £40million bid, looking for something closer to £65m.
