REAL MADRID OPEN NEYMAR TALKS
Real Madrid have opened discussions regarding a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar in the summer of 2018, according to OK Diario .

The Gunners led the hunt over the summer, but they now face competition from Premier League rivals for a £90 million talent.
ARSENAL TRACKING WIDMER
Arsenal will make a move for Udinese defender Silvan Widmer if Hector Bellerin leaves the club, reports TMW .
Bellerin is wanted by Barcelona and Juventus and the Gunners are eager to ensure that they have a suitable replacement identified.
REAL MADRID KEEN ON SALAH
Real Madrid are keen to sign Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah, according to Don Balon .
The report claims the Liga outfit are prepared to offer Lucas Vazquez as part of any deal to try and lure Salah, who has scored 19 goals for Liverpool so far this term, to the Spanish capital.
CHELSEA STILL WANT BARKLEY
Chelsea are still interested in Everton ace Ross Barkley and are preparing another offer to sign the midfielder, the Daily Mail reports.
The Blues missed out on landing Barkley, who is also believed to be on Tottenham's radar, in the summer, but the Mail claims Antonio Conte's side are not giving up hope on acquiring the 24-year-old.
KEPA ARRIVAL COULD SEAL CASILLA EXIT
Kiko Casilla will be free to leave Real Madrid should the club sign Athletic Club goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to Marca .
Casilla, who had been linked with a switch to Newcastle United last summer, is reportedly surplus to requirements and will be available if Real can secure his replacement.
MADRID TURN TO LLORIS
Real Madrid are confident of completing a summer move for Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, according to the Sunday People .
The France international is keen to win silverware, and with Spurs struggling domestically this season, the Blancos believe he could be tempted to leave.
They remain keen on David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois but could now turn their full attention onto Lloris.
JUVE TARGET BELLERIN DEAL
Juventus have identified Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin as their priority right-back target for next summer, reports Tuttosport .
With Stephan Lichtsteiner expected to leave Juve, the Serie A champions are assessing the market for potential replacements.
Thomas Meunier and Sime Vrsaljko are options, but Juve will move for Bellerin, if they are given any indication that Arsenal are prepared to sell the Spaniard.
MKHITARYAN WANTS SHOWDOWN TALKS
Henrikh Mkhitaryan wants talks with Jose Mourinho to find out if he has a future at Manchester United, according to the Daily Star .
The Armenia international has made just one substitute appearance for United in the past month and has been linked with a return to former club Borussia Dortmund.
SHAW DEMANDS PAY-OFF TO LEAVE MAN UNITED
Luke Shaw will only agree to leave Manchester United if the club stump up £5 million to cover potential losses in earnings, according to the Sun .
A fringe figure under Jose Mourinho, the full-back is expected to be put up for sale in January. Unlikely to command the same wages he enjoys at Old Trafford elsewhere, Shaw reportedly will in turn demand United cover the shortfall before accepting a move away.
Newcastle United are one of the clubs to be linked with the out of favour defender in the new year.
BAYERN PREPARE LENO BID
Bayern Munich have made Bayer Leverkusen star Bernd Leno their principal target for the January transfer window, claims Bild .
The Germany international reportedly is seen as the perfect replacement for Manuel Neuer as Die Roten's No. 1 recovers from a foot injury.
It remains to be seen, however, if Leverkusen will sanction a sale — or if Bayern will be willing to spend big on what will be essentially a back-up shot-stopper.
COUTINHO PREPARED TO SEE OUT SEASON
Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho is willing to wait until the end of the season to join Barcelona, the Daily Mirror reports.
The Brazil international is eager to move to Camp Nou to play alongside Lionel Messi, but has come to a compromise at Anfield which will see him turn down the chance to move in January if the transfer is agreed with Barcelona for a summer transfer.
This would give Coutinho the move he desires, but also give Reds boss Jurgen Klopp enough time to find an adequate replacement for the 25-year-old.
MAN UTD WANT WHITECAPS TEENAGER
Manchester United have invited Vancouver Whitecaps teenager Alphonso Davies for a trial in January, reports CTV Edmonton .
The 17-year-old midfielder, who became the youngest player to make his debut for the Canada national team in the summer, is waiting for clearance from his club to accept the offer from United.
ROMERO CONSIDERS MAN UTD EXIT
Sergio Romero is considering leaving Manchester United in January so he can play regularly before next summer’s World Cup, reports the Daily Mail .
Romero has remained Argentina’s first-choice keeper, despite having to play second fiddle at club level to David de Gea at United.
However, Romero wants to ensure he is in the best possible form ahead of the finals in Russia and may seek a January move.
MAN UTD STILL WANT PERISIC
Manchester United are still keen on Ivan Perisic after missing out on the Inter winger over the summer, reports The Sun .
The Croatian signed a new deal after staying in Italy, but that was a ploy to keep his value up and he could be available in January for £45 million.
CHELSEA EYE £15M GOLOVIN
Chelsea are set to push for a bargain £15 million deal for CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin in the winter transfer window, says The Sun .
The Blues are eager to land the 21-year-old before next summer's World Cup and could sign him and agree a loan return to CSKA.
UTD LINE UP £95M LAZIO STAR
Manchester United will look to break their transfer record to sign Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic for £95m, according to The Express .
The midfielder has also been linked with Serie A giants Juventus, but Jose Mourinho has made him a top target for the Old Trafford board.
GIROUD PUSHING FOR LOAN SWITCH
Olivier Giroud is looking for a loan route out of Arsenal, reports the Daily Mirror .
The France international knows he needs game time to make the 2018 World Cup and has put West Ham and Crystal Palace on alert with his plans.
BATSHUAYI FREE TO LEAVE BLUES

MAN UTD PLOT ASENSIO BID
Manchester United will make a move for Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio in January after shelving plans to try and sign Gareth Bale, reports Don Balon .
The Red Devils are confident they can land the 21-year-old as he has been unable to nail down a regular starting berth at Santiago Bernabeu.
MAN UTD TO OFFLOAD SHAW & DARMIAN
Manchester United are listening to offers for full-backs Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian, according to The Daily Record .
Injury-plagued Shaw has apparently been offered to a host of English clubs, while Italy international Darmian is also seen as expendable by manager Jose Mourinho.
United hope to raise funds for the purchase of a new left-back with Alex Sandro and Danny Rose two possible options in the winter transfer window.
BETIS WANT TO SIGN STURRIDGE
Real Betis are prepared to offer Daniel Sturridge a route out of Liverpool, according to El Gol Digital .
The England international is struggling for game time at Anfield and will be given the chance to head for Spain during the January window.
CHELSEA EYE £20M BAILEY
Chelsea are ready to make a £20 million bid for Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey, says The Sun .
The Blues have been monitoring the Jamaican for 18 months and will endeavour to fend off interest from Barcelona to land the 20-year-old.
MAN UTD WANT ALEX SANDRO
Jose Mourinho has made Juventus’s Alex Sandro his No.1 target to fill Manchester United’s left-back spot, reports the Daily Record .
Mourinho has used a variety of players at left-back during his time as United boss and has been strongly linked with a January move for Tottenham’s Danny Rose.
However, Sandro is now high on Mourinho’s wanted list after his former club Chelsea failed to persuade Juventus to sell the Brazil international in the summer.
CHELSEA JOIN FIGHT TO SIGN ARTHUR
