Done Deal: Real Madrid striker Jovic returns to Eintracht Frankfurt
Real Madrid are loaning striker Luca Jovic back to Eintracht Frankfurt having paid out 60 million euros to the Bundesliga club in order to secure the Serb’s services on a six-year contract in 2019.

Jovic’s temporary return ‘home’ was announced by Eintracht sporting director Fredi Bobic.

He told Sky television: “Luka Jovic is being loaned to us until the summer. We still have to sort out a couple of details like for example his medical.

“If everything is in order he will be back with us very soon.”

Jovic was high on Real’s shopping list after he had lit up the 2018/2019 Bundesliga season with 17 goals.

Blues lead race for former Barca academy player, Moro

Chelsea are leading the race with other top European clubs to sign Lazio winger Raul Moro, according to La Lazio Siamo Noi (via Team Talk ).

Moro, formerly of Barcelona academy, is frustrated with the lack of game time he’s getting for the Serie A club.

The 18-year-old doesn’t have too much first-team experience, but is a subject of interest from numerous big clubs, the report claims.

One of them is the Blues, who are ‘considerably’ interested in the teenage talent, while other Premier League sides are also said to be keen.

A ‘top club’ in Italy are also looking to make a move for Moro, but the report did not name them.

Manchester United ‘told to pay £100m for Kalidou Koulibaly’

Manchester United have reportedly been quoted £100m if they wish to sign Napoli’s central defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manchester City had previously been linked with the Senegalese international before they opted to signed Ruben Dias from Benfica last summer.

This has given both Liverpool and Manchester United the chance to sign the highly-rated defender, with talkSPORT’s Jim White stating that they will have to pay a nine-figure sum if they wish to recruit the 29-year-old.

“There isn’t a window in the last two, three or four that we don’t see big mentions of the Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly,” White said.

Chelsea keen on Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland has been linked with a move to Chelsea recently, and this latest statistic has shown exactly why Roman Abramovich should spend big on the Borussia Dortmund star.

Haaland has scored 19 goals in 16 games in all competitions this season so far – highlighting the Norway striker’s immense talent.

On Saturday, the 20-year-old netted a brace to help Dortmund win 3-1 over high-fliers RB Leipzig, setting a new record in the process.

His two goals against Leipzig ensured he became the first player in Bundesliga history to score 25 goals in his first 25 league matches.

Barcelona ‘want Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero on a free transfer’

Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero on a free transfer this summer.

The Argentine’s current contract expires in June, which means that the 32-year-old can talk to European clubs about a move away from the Etihad Stadium.

The Sun reports that the Catalan club have been alerted that Aguero is yet to negotiate a new deal with City and are hopeful of beating Spanish rivals Atletico Madrid to sign the striker.
