Real Madrid have made a world record bid of over £85m to Spurs for Gareth Bale, Sky Sports understands.

Sky Sports also claim that the bid has been on the table for over a week and Bale is aware of it and is becoming more frustrated with the situation. This is the Luka Modric situation all over again for Tottenham, but this time the money on offer is absolutely crazy. If Daniel Levy decided to sell Bale then that decision must come soon so the club have time to reinvest the cash in new players to replace the Welsh attacker.

Argentina defeated the Netherlands 4-2 on penalties in the World Cup semi-final.

The match was a slow one, finishing 0-0 in regular time. Neither team created many chances and overall produced one of the least exciting matches in this tournament. In extra-time, Louis van Gaal subbed out Robin van Persie to bring on Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, a move that ended up hurting them in the penalty shootout. Jasper Cillessen did not save a single penalty and van Persie wasn't there to take one. Instead, Ron Vlaar missed the Netherlands' first penalty kick and the Europeans never recovered. Argentina will face Germany in the final on Sunday.

Chelsea have signed Croatian midfielder Mario Pasalic from Hajduk Split.

The Blues lost Frank Lampard this summer but have done more than enough to replace him. They've signed Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas and now have signed a prospect for the future. Mario Pasalic is a 19-year-old central midfielder whose favorite player is Frank Lampard. Pasalic will take part of Chelsea's summer tour and pre-season training but there is a chance that he gets loaned out in order to get regular playing time. Pasalic is not ready to be a starter for Chelsea and he will need to develop a bit more to make it as a regular. The best case scenario for him this season is to be a backup for Fabregas and Nemanja Matic.

Manchester City have completed the signing of goalkeeper Willy Caballero from Malaga on a three-year deal.

Caballero played under Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini when he was in charge of Malaga between 2010-2013 and was regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in La Liga. The 32-year-old stopper joins the club to provide back-up and competition for Joe Hart, after Costel Pantilimon left to join Sunderland last month.

Despite having just signed a one-year extension, Patrice Evra has been linked with a move to Juventus in Serie A.

The arrival of Luke Shaw at Old Trafford for a huge transfer fee means that Patrice Evra is unlikely to be the sure fire starter he has been throughout his tenure at United. This has apparently encouraged Juventus to make an offer for the French international who apparently wants to continue on as a regular starter on a Champions League team. The rumor mill has United chasing Swiss standout Ricardo Rodriguez as a replacement (quite why a player in his prime coming off a great World Cup would sign up to be a reserve behind Luke Shaw is beyond me but that's what the rumors are saying).

Reports across Europe indicate that Arsenal are at the finish line with the signings of Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez from Newcastle and Barcelona respectively.

Arsenal are set to unveil their new Puma kits on Thursday. There is a line of thinking that says that they are holding up formal announcements on Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez, both strongly rumored to be done deals, to coincide with the press event for the new kits. The kit maker would certainly be off to a great start with a strong association with what are widely viewed as strong moves by the North London club. It could be a big day at the Emirates tomorrow indeed.

Loic Remy has been rumored to be an Arsenal target in years past as well as all summer this year and that possibility resurfaced today with word of Arsenal being ready to trip the Frenchman's £8m buy-out clause.

With Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy seemingly wrapped up, Arsene Wenger is moving on to address other needs. A move to provide cover/competition for Olivier Giroud in the form of French international teammate Loic Remy is apparently Wenger's next move. The forward has expressed an interest and his £8m buy-out clause means that the transfer fee from QPR won't be much of an issue. The next priorities will be to sort out Thomas Vermaelen and secure a holding midfielder, likely from Morgan Schneiderlein, Lars Bender, and Sami Khedira. It could be quite a summer at the Emirates if all that comes to fruition.

Germany destroyed Brazil 7-1 in what is one of the biggest World Cup shocks of all time.

This is the biggest embarrassment for Brazil since they lost a World Cup final at home in 1950. The German team scored an incredible four goals in just six minutes in the first half and went into halftime with a 5-0 lead. Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose, Toni Kroos, and Sami Khedira all scored in that historic first half. In the second, Chelsea substitute Andre Schurrle came on to score two goals in finish off Brazil. In the late minutes of the match, fellow Chelsea star Oscar scored a consolation goal for Brazil as they walked off the pitch as one of the biggest embarrassments the country has ever experienced. Germany face the winner of Argentina and the Netherlands in the final on Sunday.

A David Luiz mistake opened up the floodgates of Brazil that led to a 7-1 Germany win over the host nation.

Luiz failed to mark Thomas Muller on a first half corner kick that led to Germany's first goal. After the goal, Brazil fell apart and there was nothing Luiz could do to stop the embarrassment. The Brazilian team missed Thiago Silva and Neymar, at least psychologically if not physically. The Brazilians looked to have given up after going 2-0 down and were standing around watching Germany play. In the second half, Brazil woke up for a short amount of time but German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer refused to let them back into the match. Brazil faces the loser of Argentina and the Netherlands in the third place match on Saturday.

Robin van Persie has been deemed doubtful for the Netherlands' semi-final clash versus Argentina on Wednesday.

van Persie has gone down with a stomach problem and did not train today. He did take part in 11 v 9 drills, so the problem doesn't seem too threatening. All signs point towards the Netherlands captain playing tomorrow but keep an eye before you use him in World Cup fantasy leagues. In terms of his status for the Premier League season, there is absolutely nothing to worry about here and RvP should be 100% by then.

Serbian international Dusan Tadic has officially signed with Southampton for a reported £10.9m fee to replace the attacking threat in midfield created by Adam Lallana's departure for Liverpool.

New manager Ronald Koeman managed against Tadic for the past four seasons in the Dutch Eredivisie and has now brought Tadic in as his first recruit at Southampton. The difference in the fee gained for Lallana and paid for Tadic means that the Saints have plenty of room to strengthen elsewhere assuming Tadic can produce similarly to Lallana. The attacking midfielder is definitely one to watch heading into the new Premier League season as he'll have every chance to produce for the Saints and his new manager. The one warning here is that there are plenty of examples of high-scoring players from Holland who have failed to translate their success to the Premier League. The hope for Southampton will be that Koeman's familiarity with the player will have helped him pick out a player capable of making the leap.
