Real Madrid are about to make a 40-million-euros bid to sign Paris Saint-Germain’s midfielder Marco Verratti, according to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Los Blancos are seeking for at least one more man to complete their midfield line -after Toni Kroos arrival has been secured- and the Italian is one of Carlo Ancelotti’s favourites. La Gazzetta claims Verratti’s agent Donato di Campli has been in talks with Real since the beginning for June, and the player would be willing to move to Madrid, but PSG will not let him go easily.
Pepe to Monaco?
French newspaper Le Parisien has published Pepe might be included as part of the deal to bring Monaco’s Radamel Falcao to the Santiago Bernabeu. With Alvaro Morata moving to Turin, Los Merengues are in need of a striker, and they have started approaching the possible candidates.
Although Monaco were not willing to sell the Colombian, they might have set their eyes in Pepe to reinforce their defence, and that could make them change their mind about the striker.
Casemiro too expensive for Inter
Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro was very close to signing for Inter Milan, but Los Blancos reluctance to reduce his price tag might have forced the Italians to break off negotiations.
Los Blancos are demanding 12 million euros plus a buy-back clause, but that seems to be too much for Inter. Thus, the Neroazzurri might have started considering a loan move, despite their first intention was to get a permanent deal.
