More on Raheem Sterling interest

Real Madrid have decided not to make a deadline day swoop for Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling.

However, Real Madrid are interested in signing the England international.

Real have emerged as suitors of Sterling in the past – most notably when he was at Liverpool.

The forward’s £50m transfer to Manchester City in 2015 kiboshed their short-term goals of signing the player.

But Sky Sports claim Sterling is back on the agenda at the Bernabeu.

According to the report, the 23-year-old is being closely watched by Real Madrid scouts and a bid could soon be forthcoming.

Real will not look to sign Sterling before Friday’s transfer deadline – there is not enough time to set up the deal and City will definitely not sell as they cannot land a replacement.

But Real will supposedly use this season to track the player and ascertain his value.

Mariano Diaz to return

Real Madrid are close to re-signing striker Mariano Diaz.

That’s according to Sevilla president Jose Castro, who admitted his side would miss out on the 25-year-old.

Sevilla were expected to sign Diaz, who joined Lyon from Real Madrid for £7million in 2017, but Castro claims the player has reneged on a transfer agreement.

“Real Madrid have a buy option they are going to exercise,” Castro told reporters. “But we still have no communication from the player, who has told us that he wanted to play with Sevilla again and again. He has the ability to say one thing or another.

“We negotiated with Lyon and then they have 48 hours to decide. Real Madrid did it. Annoyed with Real Madrid? Not at all, this is football. We have to keep working.

“We have done what we had to do, in good faith, with an agent and a player who tells us on videos and audios that he only wants to play in Sevilla.”

Diaz made 14 appearances for Real Madrid’s senior side in the 2016/2017 season, netting five goals in 14 appearances.

Michael Carrick odds slashed

Michael Carrick has seen his odds slashed by the bookies to replace under-fire manager Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United have lost two of their first three matches of a Premier League campaign for the first time since 1992/93.

And odds on Mourinho getting sacked have tumbled following last night’s 3-0 defeat to Tottenham at Old Trafford.

Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has emerged as the bookmakers’ favourite to replace the Portuguese, but his odds have drifted from 6/4 to 5/2.

And now punters have started to back captain-turn-coach Carrick for the United hot seat, with Paddy Power slashing his odds from 50/1 to 20/1 following a flurry of bets.

“We’ve been inundated with bets on Michael Carrick to take over from Jose Mourinho this morning,” a Paddy Power spokesman said. “That comes as Zinedine Zidane goes on the drift quicker than Manchester United’s title hopes. Still, there’s always Big Sam…”

2019 swoop planned…

Juventus are planning an audacious swoop for Real Madrid star Marcelo… next year!

Juventus signed Cristiano Ronaldo last month and would like to reunite him with former Bernabeu friend and colleague Marcelo.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport claim the Serie A champions didn’t move for the left-back this season because defender Alex Sandro stayed despite strong interest from Paris St-Germain, Manchester United and Chelsea.

However, Tuttosport continues to add that Juventus will offer £45million when Sandro is eventually sold.

Lacazette considering future – report

Reports in France have suggested that Alexandre Lacazette is seriously considering his Arsenal future.

Lacazette, 27, arrived from Lyon in July 2017 for £46million and notched up 17 goals in 39 appearances under Arsene Wenger.

But life isn’t as simple under Unai Emery.

Frenchman has not started a single Premier League game under Emery, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang preferred as a lone striker.

This has led to French publication Le10Sport to claim that Lacazette is pushing for an Arsenal exit before the European transfer window slams shut on Friday.

Wanted: Raheem Sterling

Real Madrid are considering an audacious approach for Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling, reports claim.

Sterling has entered the final two years of his Etihad contract and talks over a lucrative extension have hit an impasse.

The former Liverpool star netted 23 goals in 46 matches to help Manchester City win the Premier League title, and his exploits haven’t gone unnoticed.

Sky Sports claim Real Madrid have renewed their interest in the 23-year-old but will NOT make an official bid before the Spanish transfer window closes on Friday.

Lionel Messi would never do that…

Cristiano Ronaldo’s move from Real Madrid to Juventus has been criticised by former Madrid star Rafael van der Vaart.

The ex-Tottenham attacker believes Lionel Messi would never leave Barcelona and has compared the Argentinian ace to Ronaldo.

Ronaldo made the move from Real Madrid to Juventus during the summer after nine successful years at the Bernabeu.

You know, guys like Messi… Messi will never leave Barcelona,” Van der Vaart told football.ua. “I’m slightly sad about Ronaldo’s departure.”

Done Deal: Andriy Lunin leaves on loan

Real Madrid have confirmed new goalkeeper Andriy Lunin will head out on loan this season.

Real Madrid only signed Lunin, 19, from Zorya Luhansk this summer.

The shot-stopper arrived in a deal worth around £8m.

But Real already have plenty of goalkeepers in their ranks and further bolstered that position with the £35m arrival from Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.

Lunin has therefore been given the chance to head out on loan to gain first-team experience.

A statement read: “Real Madrid CF and CD Leganes have agreed to the cession of player Andriy Lunin for this season, until June 30, 2019.”

Lunin will stay on loan at Leganes for the 2018/19 season before heading back to the Bernabeu.

Gareth Bale's Real Madrid renaissance proves he has the character to be a future captain of Wales

Gareth Bale – next captain

Gareth Bale’s Real Madrid renaissance proves he has the character to be a future captain of Wales, according to his former international colleague Simon Davies.

Bale was seemingly inching towards the exit door at the Bernabeu before scoring twice in Real’s Champions League final victory against Liverpool in May.

Instead, manager Zinedine Zidane and team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo left Madrid after that triumph and Bale has since played a pivotal part under new boss Julen Lopetegui, scoring in Real’s opening two LaLiga wins.

“It’s funny how it’s all worked out for Gareth,” Davies said. “The middle of last season he was struggling with injury and Ronaldo was always the main man.

“Then he scores those goals in the Champions League final, Ronaldo leaves, and now he’s the main man. So he’s probably got what he’s always wanted there and he’s embracing it. As long as he stays fit he’ll go on and have a great season.”

Done Deal: Alcacer joins Borussia Dortmund

Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer has joined Borussia Dortmund on loan for the season, with the German club retaining the option to buy him for a fee which could rise to £25million.

“The German club will pay Barcelona 2 million euros for the year-long loan and take charge of the player’s salary,” the Spanish champions said in a statement.

Dortmund can buy Alcacer at the end of the loan but Barcelona also have the right to refuse.

Should the forward sign permanently for Dortmund and later be sold to another club, Barcelona would earn five percent of the transfer fee.

The Spaniard scored 15 goals in 50 appearances over two seasons, winning La Liga, the Copa del Rey twice and one Spanish Super Cup.
