Son names his terms and conditions prior possible Real Madrid transfer

Heung-Min Son has reportedly named his terms and conditions before possible transfer to Real Madrid next summer, claims the Express.

A report from the Express now states that Son Heung-Min has named his terms and conditions to Real Madrid if he is to sign for the club next summer. The report states that the South Korean forward wants to have the status of a superstar at the club which indirectly could mean having an indispensable role in the starting eleven.

With Eden Hazard on the left flank at the club, Son could be indicating that he wants to be a starter at the club which means that Los Blancos would have to show their Belgian the door next summer. Eden Hazard has not yet found his feet at Real Madrid, however, it is highly unlikely that the club will consider offloading their most expensive signing after two seasons.

Manchester United’s Potential Pogba Replacement ‘Likened To Ronaldo, Better Than Fernandes,’ Report Says

Goncalves has been compared to Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo. The midfielder’s agent has shut down rumours of his client’s potential move to United.

Manchester United has identified a candidate to replace Paul Pogba in Sporting CP’s Pedro Goncalves, according to reports.

The buzz about Goncalves being on Man United’s radar this transfer window has reached the masses. Goncalves has earned comparisons to Bruno Fernandes after he filled the void left by the 26-year-old at Sporting, and just recently, Discovery-owned TV network Eurosport dubbed the midfielder the “next Cristiano Ronaldo.”

What’s even more interesting is that Goncalves has recorded better numbers than Fernandes did during the latter’s time at Sporting. The 22-year-old is currently averaging a goal every 83 minutes this season, making him more than twice as effective as Fernandes was in his final half-season at Sporting with a goal every 191 minutes.

The reports added that a £54.4 million ($73 million) bid will be enough to send the highly-rated midfielder to United.

Man Utd and Chelsea transfer target Declan Rice tells friends his preferred next club

Manchester United target Declan Rice would prefer to join Chelsea when the transfer window reopens at the end of the season, according to reports. The England international is wanted by both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard amid his impressive form for West Ham. Rice has made 17 Premier League appearances this term, helping his side to tenth in the Premier League table.

United are well-stocked in midfield at present. But, despite having Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Donny van de Beek, Nemanja Matic, Fred and Scott McTominay shining, Solskjaer is keen on Rice.

The West Ham star has enhanced his reputation as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League this term, helping the Hammers impress under David Moyes.

But while United want Rice, The Mirror claim the England international has told friends he’d prefer to stay in London with Chelsea.

A source is quoted as saying: “Dec has been flattered by the interest in him but he doesn’t see himself moving to Manchester.
