Goal summarises the biggest transfer talk involving Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane considers his January transfer window options
Madrid to offer Ronaldo for Neymar
Real Madrid could use Cristiano Ronaldo as part of a deal to land PSG star Neymar, reports the El Larguero radio show on Cadena SER.
Florentino Perez wants to bring the Brazilian into his side and is willing to part with his superstar forward, though Los Blancos will wait until after the World Cup to make their move.
Madrid to swap Bale for Salah
Real Madrid could use Gareth Bale as bait in order to land Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, claims Don Balon.
Salah’s sensational form this season has caught the eye of the Merengue, who have struggled to score goals.
And they would be prepared to sacrifice their record signing to convince Liverpool into selling the Egypt star.
Rush fears £200m bid for Salah
Livrepool legend Ian Rush fears that Real Madrid and Barcelona could come after Mohamed Salah with a massive bid of bid £200 million.
“On current form I would place Mo Salah ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo . He’s better than them at the moment,” Rush is quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“Mo is also the African Player of the Year, which – considering the standard of their players throughout Europe – is a great honour.
“There’s already been talk of Real Madrid looking at him – and who can blame them? In today’s inflated market, it wouldn’t surprise me if Liverpool one day received a £200m bid for him.
“Hopefully, he is happy where he is – after all, he only arrived last summer.
“There’s a time and a place to sell a player if the right money comes in, but, for Liverpool, it’s certainly not now.”
Messi wants Odriozola at Barca
Lionel Messi wants Alvaro Odriozola at Barcelona, reports Don Balon.
According to the report, Messi wants the 22-year-old from Real Sociedad to play on the right side, with the La Liga giants currently lacking natural right wingers.
But Barca will have competition from Real Madrid for his services, with Florentino Perez having already shown an interest in his signature.
Kane could revitalise Madrid’s forward line
Goal chief correspondent Peter Staunton believes Harry Kane is the man who could get Real Madrid firing again, although it may come too late to save Zinedine Zidane’s job.
Madrid’s woes in front of goal were laid bare on Saturday as they went down to Villarreal, while Kane helped himself to a double in Spurs’ 4-0 thrashing of Everton.
Real Madrid move for Man City’s Sterling
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is in talks with Manchester City over the possible signing of Raheem Sterling, claims Don Balon .
Sterling has seen marked improvement in his game since coming under the wing of Pep Guardiola.
And that upturn in form has not escaped the attention of Perez, who sees him as a possible successor to Gareth Bale at the Bernabeu.
Man Utd ready €500m Neymar bid
Manchester United are readying a record-breaking €500 million offer for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar, according to Le 10 Sport .
Real Madrid were reported to be leading the chase for the Brazilian, but they can only go as high as €400m.
That has left the door open for Jose Mourinho to join the chase and agree to meet an eye-watering buyout clause.
Liverpool offered Ceballos hope
Liverpool have been made aware that they will be cleared to move for Dani Ceballos if Real Madrid can land a replacement.
Diario Gol report that the Reds are looking at the 21-year-old as a possible replacement for Philippe Coutinho.
