The latest Real Madrid transfer rumours include Los Blancos planning a move for Cesc Fabregas, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United fighting over James Rodriguez signing, and a couple of Italian giants showing an interest in Toni Kroos.
Barcelona-based newspaper Mundo Deportivo has claimed Fabregas might be close to signing for the Santiago Bernabeu side, following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal from Chelsea. Florentino Perez wants to get a benefit from the chaos at Stamford Bridge and bring the former Barca midfielder.
Los Merengues had negotiated with Fabregas a few years ago, when Ramon Calderon was the president and the Spanish footballer was playing at Arsenal. Yet, Cesc ended up returning to Barcelona. The player’s current market value is 50 million euros, but Florentino Perez would surely have to offer more in order to convince Roman Abramovich.
Fabregas signing could be funded by selling James Rodriguez, who is in the wish-list of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United. British newspaper The Independent has claimed the French club are willing to make a crazy bid to sign the Colombian in January.
Louis Van Gaal has also reportedly requested United directors to try to bring Rodriguez to Manchester. However, neither United nor PSG seem to have serious chances of convincing both Florentino Perez and James.
Inter Milan and Juventus interested in Toni Kroos
Italian newspapers have reported that Inter Milan and Juventus are interested in signing Toni Kroos. The Germany international has been replaced by Casemiro in various occasions these season and many believe it is time for the Brazilian to become the guaranteed starter, leaving Kroos in the bench.
That situation does not please the German, who could start thinking of leaving Madrid. Inter and Juve dream of taking advantage of this to seduce Kroos and bring him to Italy. Yet, should he leave Madrid, it seems like Kroos’ first choice would be the Premier League.
