Chinese to match Real Madrid's Bale valuation

Guangzhou Evergrande are set to rival Manchester United for the signing of Gareth Bale, according to  The Mirror .

The Chinese Super League are prepared to meet Real Madrid's £85 million valuation of the 28-year-old, who has struggled with injury this season. Manchester United have long been seen as the favourites to sign the Welshman, but China's richest club are hoping to unite him with coach Fabio Cannavaro.

Donnarumma wanted as Courtois replacement

Chelsea want AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, if they lose Thibaut Courtois in the summer, claims Mundo Deportivo .

The Premier League champions are hoping to agree a new contract with Courtois, whose current deal expires in 18 months’ time.

However, he has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid and, if the Belgian ends up at the Santiago Bernabeu, then Chelsea want Donnarumma to replace him.

Madrid no longer looking at Luiz

Real Madrid have backed away from the idea of bringing in David Luiz, according to  Don Balon

The Spanish side made contact with the Brazilian a few weeks back, according to the report, but he has been left waiting since then. 

While Luiz also drew interest from Manchester United, he was more interested in Los Bloncos, though it now seems as though Zinedine Zidane believes he might cause issues in the dressing room with the club having two established centre-backs. 

Tottenham set £300m Kane asking price

Real Madrid will have to pay up £300 million to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham,  The Mirror   reports.

Manchester United have also been linked with the Spurs star in recent days. 

Mourinho wants Bale signed in January

Manchester United are set to make an attempt to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid in the January transfer window,  The Express  reports.

The Old Trafford side have long been interested in the Wales international and are hoping they can lure him this month to appease coach Jose Mourinho.

Real Madrid set to bid for Salah

Mohamed Salah's early-season success with Liverpool has led to interest from Real Madrid, OK Diario   reports. 

Zinedine Zidane's men have misfired offensively this season and are looking for solutions in front of goal, with the Egypt star touted as a possibility after an explosive beginning to life at Anfield.

Madrid are aware that a deal during January will be complicated but are set to return in the summer.

Zidane certain Ronaldo will stay at Madrid

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is convinced Cristiano Ronaldo will stay put, despite recent speculation that the forward is unsettled at the Santiago Bernabeu,

"I cannot imagine a Real Madrid without Cristiano," he said ahead of the club's La Liga match at Celta Vigo on Sunday.

"He is a Madrid player and what he wants is to finish his career here. I do not see him playing anywhere else.”

'Keeping Kane will be difficult'

Tottenham may see their hand forced by Harry Kane at some stage if Real Madrid and Manchester United rumours persist, Christian Ziege has warned.

“He has the option to change [clubs] in the Premier League or if he wants to have experience away from the Premier League. At some stage, if he wants to move on, it will be difficult to keep him.”

James tells Mina to join Madrid

James Rodriguez has attempted to convince his countryman Yerry Mina to join Real Madrid instead of Barcelona, according to Don Balon ,

Mina is in talks with Barcelona over a move but the Bayern Munich midfielder, who is on loan from the Blancos, is trying to get Mina to change his mind.  

It appears that Rodriguez's pleas are falling on deaf ears, however, as Mina reportedly is still on the verge of signing with the Blaugrana.
