The final weeks of the Premier League saw a fair few emotional farewells as several players are expected to leave their respective clubs after long stints.

Granit Xhaka scored a brace on his final game for Arsenal, while Ruben Neves bid goodbye to the Wolverhampton Wanderers faithful. It was also an emotional exit for Roberto Firimino, who opened the scoring for Liverpool against Southampton in his last game for the Reds.

The Brazilian has been at Anfield for eight seasons at this point, and has scored 11 goals in 25 appearances during this league season.

His next destination is still unknown, but Real Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on the player, as reported earlier. Los Blancos are, indeed, interested in the player, as has been confirmed by Daily Mail.

The report also claims that Firmino wants to talk to Madrid before deciding his future, though, as he wants to know how he would fit into the team.

As of now, it seems likely that Firmino would play as a substitute to Karim Benzema should the move transpire this summer.

While the Frenchman was expected to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu despite his contract expiring at the end of the season, the situation has changed rather dramatically in the last few hours, with reports claiming that he is now closer to leaving the club than continuing.

Madrid are also considering a move for Harry Kane, but his price tag, coupled with Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy’s negotiation tactics, could push him off Madrid’s radar.

Barcelona are also in for a move for Firmino if reports are to be believed, but in that scenario, it would be almost certain that he would be playing second fiddle to Robert Lewandowski.

Madrid’s decision to buy Firmino could drastically change should Benzema decide to leave the club on a free transfer.

Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
