Tottenham will pull out all the stops to convince a Real Madrid star to join them in January, while Premier League sides are on alert by the news that Borussia Dortmund will cash in on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang next summer, according to Saturday’s papers.
Tottenham To Move For Isco In January
Tottenham are ‘crazy’ over Real Madrid star Isco with Mauricio Pochettino ‘desperate’ to bring the player to the club in January, according to reports in Spain.
And the 24-year-old Spain star has accepted he may need to leave the Bernabeu after fading into obscurity over the last couple of seasons.
Isco even acknowledged his position was his own fault recently and now Spurs could make a move.
Aubameyang Eyes Next Move
Manchester City and Chelsea have been boosted by the news that £65million Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to leave at the end of the season.
The German club are understood to be ready to allow the striker to go at the end of the season after rejecting Premier League interest in the summer.
Both City and Chelsea remain interested in Aubameyang, 27, who has netted 87 times in 152 appearances for Dortmund.
City expressed an interest in him in August, as the player himself confirmed, but did not pursue to the point of a bid.
Real Madrid, and PSG were also touted as potential destinations and could reignite that interest.
Although Aubemeyang has been most keen to move to Madrid, the European champions would be hampered by the transfer ban imposed upon them by FIFA which runs until 2018.
Fabregas For Bonucci?
￼Cesc Fabregas could be the linchpin in a Chelsea move for Leonardo Bonucci.
Cesc Fabregas could be the key to Chelsea signing Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus, the Sun claims.
The midfielder has fallen out of favour under new Blues boss Antonio Conte, but the prospect of him moving to Turin has reportedly convinced Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri to allow Bonucci to leave for Chelsea in a £50 million-plus Fabregas deal.
Italy international Bonucci would help shore up a defence that has already cost Chelsea points this season, while it is said Allegri believes Fabregas can become the long-term heir to Andrea Pirlo in the Bianconeri's midfield.
Aleix Vidal has already begun saying his goodbyes ahead of a move away from Barcelona after failing to break into Luis Enrique's side. El Mundo Deportivo reckons the right-back has told teammates: "It's clear to me. I want to leave," ahead of a move in January, but Barca are yet to decide whether or not to cash in.
The Sun claims Manchester United are "kicking themselves" about their failure to insert a sell-on clause into Michael Keane's Burnley contract, with a number of big clubs ready to move for the defender in January. The 23-year-old, who has been linked with Chelsea and Leicester City, is a huge United fan and would relish the opportunity to return to Old Trafford one day.
