Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Real Madrid on Thursday, July 9.

The buildup to the summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Real Madrid eye possible reinforcements.

Florentino Perez oversaw a significant overhaul of his squad during the summer before focusing more on youth in January. As is always the case with Madrid, though, some of the biggest names in football continue to be linked.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news of possible comings and goings at the Bernabeu.

Thursday morning's Real Madrid transfer talk news roundup:

Report: Kylian Mbappe puts Paris Saint-Germain contract talks on hold

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has reportedly put talks over a new contract on hold as he waits to hear back from Real Madrid.

The France international, who again joint-topped the Ligue 1 scoring charts this term, has long been mooted as a target for Zinedine Zidane at Madrid.

However, the Spanish giants are understood to have delayed tabling an offer for Mbappe until at least 2021 due to the adverse effects of the coronavirus pandemic on their finances.

According to Marca, the 21-year-old is continuing to stall on discussing fresh terms with PSG on the off chance that Los Blancos do push ahead with a move this summer.

The same report indicates that in-demand Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga is in a similar position to Mbappe and has also been left in limbo over his future.

Real Madrid to launch fresh bid for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba?

Real Madrid are reportedly contemplating whether to revive their interest in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

At a time when the coronavirus pandemic will reduce spending in the transfer market, Pogba has made an impact alongside Bruno Fernandes at Old Trafford.

However, despite it being increasingly likely that the World Cup winner will continue his stay at the Premier League giants, it appears that one long-term admirer is not prepared to give up on his signature.

According to Get French Football News, Real boss Zinedine Zidane would back a renewed effort to tempt United into a sale.

The report suggests that Rennes' refusal to part ways with Eduardo Camavinga may have led to the latest development.

Although Pogba only has one year left on his contract, United have the option of extending his deal by a further 12 months.
