Real Madrid Chief Shifts Interest On Paul Pogba Focusing On Rennes Starlet


Real Madrid Chiefs Want to Ditch Paul Pogba Interest & Focus Attention on Rennes starlet…


Real Madrid’s bosses are stepping up their interest in Stade Rennais starlet Eduardo Camavinga, but Zinedine Zidane still needs to be convinced over the move.

Los Blancos have been heavily linked with a move for Paul Pogba over the last 18 months as Zidane looks to bolster his options in midfield, singling out Manchester United’s star player as his ideal recruit at the Santiago Bernabéu.


But Marca suggests Real Madrid’s decision makers are now looking to convince Zidane to drop his interest in Pogba – as they did in the summer – with the club instead wanting to pursue a move for Stade Rennais midfielder Camavinga.

The 17-year-old has already been tipped for a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season, but Marca’s report claims the club will now prioritise signing Camavinga ahead of Pogba this summer.


Zidane still needs to get on board with the plan, but it’s suggested Camavinga could make the move to Real Madrid for just €70m – more than half of what’s being touted for Pogba to leave Manchester United.

Camavinga initially landed on the club’s radar as a potential long-term successor for Casemiro and, although he’s not a holding midfielder by trade, the teenager appears to tick all the boxes for Real Madrid’s hierarchy.


The France Under-21 international only made his senior debut for Stade Rennais last season, but it was during a 2-1 win against Paris Saint-Germain in August where Camavinga started to make international headlines.

He set up Romain Del Castillo’s winning goal against Thomas Tuchel’s side and has since gone on to score his first senior goal during a 1-0 win over Lyon.


Highest # of successful tackles in Ligue 1 in 2019/20:

1 | Eduardo Camavinga (Rennes) – 73
2 | Ibrahim Sangaré (Toulouse) – 60
2 | Otavio (Bordeaux) – 60

Camavinga only has two years left on his contract at Roazhon Park and he’s already attracted interest from a number on Europe’s biggest sides, including Barcelona and Manchester City.

Frank Lampard Laughs Off Tottenham’s ‘Injury Crisis’ Ahead of London Derby


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has insisted Tottenham’s injury problems in attack shouldn’t be an excuse for the club when they travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

José Mourinho has been vocal over the last few weeks following long-term injuries to Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, with Tottenham being forced to use Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn as makeshift strikers.

Mourinho’s been looking to manage expectations during that time, but Lampard said before the clubs meet this weekend that Tottenham can’t use their lack of a striker as an excuse if they end up empty-handed.

Harry Kane
“I think we all feel the same as managers,” Lampard said, quoted by Goal. “When you have big players injured, you know how much you miss them. But they also have a big squad. As I said, we had five huge ones in pre-season and four or five at the moment.

Timo Werner Would Have to Settle for a Back-Up Role Next Season if He Joins Liverpool


RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner may have to settle for a back-up role next season if he joins Liverpool, with the Reds thought to have little intention of breaking up current front three Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino to make room for new signings.

Having spent the last few years considered to be among the best emerging strikers in Europe, Werner has stepped things up to a new level in 2019/20 and is on course to break through the 30-goal barrier for the first time in his career – he currently has 26 in all competitions.

Zinedine Zidane Lifts Lid on Sergio Ramos Contract Talks Amid Renewal Doubts


Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has said talks over Sergio Ramos’ contract ‘should be resolved quickly’, indicating he is very keen for his captain to put pen to paper despite some reported doubts over the club’s willingness to offer up an expensive extension.

The centre-back is one of the most decorated players in recent history having lifted four La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues among a list of honours as long as your arm.

Barcelona Tracks Ajax Goalkeeper André Onana


Barcelona are monitoring Andre Onana, of Ajax, as they explore options to replace back up goalkeeper Neto – while Chelsea also retain interest in the Cameroon international.

The Blues’ goalkeeping situation has been the subject of much debate in recent weeks after manager Frank Lampard dropped Kepa Arrizabalaga following a series of underwhelming performances.


Frank Lampard,Kepa Arrizabalaga
The Spaniard did not return to the lineup for the 2-0 loss to Manchester United, fuelling reports a new goalkeeper could arrive in the summer. One such candidate is Onana, and Sport believe that Chelsea are leading the race to sign the Cameroon international.

This is not the first time that Onana has been mentioned as a potential option for Chelsea. A previous report suggested the 23-year-old had expressed an interest in moving to Stamford Bridge, with a deal likely to cost around the €40m mark.dutch eredivisie”ajax amsterdam v rkc waalwijk”


However, that figure could increase if other sides choose to try sign Onana as well, and Sport certainly believe that could be the case.

Andre Onana
The main focal point of the article is Barcelona’s interest in the goalkeeper. La Blaugrana are thought to be uncertain whether current backup Neto is good enough for the club, and they are said to have already reached out to Onana, who spent five years in Barcelona’s academy between 2010 and 2015.


Sport even add that it is Onana’s dream to be Barcelona’s starting goalkeeper, and he would be prepared to accept a secondary role as it would give him a chance to prove himself.

There is also thought to be interest from Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, but Chelsea are believed to be ahead of the rest of the pack.


A move to Chelsea would certainly make sense. It seems like Lampard is unconvinced by Arrizabalaga – so much so that he is reported to have clashed with Chelsea officials over his reluctance to use the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.

If Chelsea do decide to move on from Arrizabalaga, Onana certainly appears to be a viable option, and it would not be the first piece of business between the clubs, with Hakim Ziyech set to join the Blues in the summer.

Jurgen Klopp Explains Why Liverpool Couldn’t Compete in Erling Haaland’s Transfer Saga

Haaland was linked with most top sides in Europe during the winter transfer window, but the 19-year-old and his agent Mino Raiola ultimately decided on a move to Germany – snubbing Salzburg’s sister club in Leipzig in the process.

Late Robert Lewandowski Strike Earns Bayern Munich 3-2 Win Over Paderborn


Bayern Munich had striker Robert Lewandowski to thank (again) as the Poland international netted an 88th-minute winner to see his side pick up a 3-2 win over Paderborn on Friday night.

With both Jérôme Boateng and Benjamin Pavard both suspended, Bayern chief Hansi Flick opted for a three-man defence. Joshua Kimmich dropped back to join both David Alaba and Lucas Hernández, and the system certainly had mixed results.

8 Conditions Xavi Put to Barcelona to Become Next Coach


Save for publicly announcing their interest, there is little Barcelona could have done to make it more clear they were keen on bringing Xavi back to the club last month.

The club legend and current Al-Sadd manager has long been thought of as a future manager of the Catalan side, and after Ernesto Valverde was relieved of his duties in January, the club’s interest in appointing Xavi as his successor was a terribly kept secret.
