​TRIBAL TRENDS – TOP 5: Liverpool target takes to social media; Morata tells Bale to join him at Man Utd; Mbappe rejects PL club;

Overall, the last week has seen Tribal readers focus on three of England's 'big clubs': Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Southampton defender Virgin van Dijk made his feelings evident after his club shut down his protracted move to Liverpool.

The Dutch defender posted a photo on Twitter – which could easily be an music album cover – of him gazing out of a plane window, with the caption being a solitary thought cloud emoji.

The Reds were found to have been 'tapping up' van Dijk illegally and ultimately paid the price for their incompetence, having been forced to publicly end their interest in the 25-year old.

According to reports out of Spain, Barcelona has offered THREE players to Arsenal for Hector Bellerin.

The full-back is viewed as a long-term replacement for Dani Alves, who left Barca to join Juventus last summer.

Arda Turan, Denis Suarez and Rafinha have all been offered to Arsene Wenger in a deal that will surely tempt the Frenchman.

L'Equipe report that Monaco wonder kid Kylian Mbappe has rejected a move to Manchester United – no thanks to super-agent Jorge Mendes,

The Portuguese, who represents United boss Jose Mourinho, is understood to have deterred the Mbappe camp for negotiating with the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata has urged Gareth Bale to join him in moving to Manchester United.

Negotiations between Real and United over Morata are nearing an end, and the Spain international has told his 'good friend' to accompany him in the switch.

And finally, as is the trend in this day and age, Fabinho's wife has reportedly let slip where her husband will be heading this summer.

The Monaco midfielder's wife, Rebecca Taveres, liked an Instagram post by a United fan that was begging the Brazilian to move to Old Trafford, sending Red Devils fans in hysterics.
