TOP STORY: Real interest in Eriksen but no deal
Real Madrid have long been admirers of Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen, with Los Blancos expected to make a move for the Denmark international this summer. However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy insists he has no plans to let the midfielder go, according to El Confidencial.
Eriksen was once again a major part of Tottenham’s form this season, the North London club finishing in the top four of the Premier League and as runners-up in the Champions League. The 27-year-old has one year left on his contract, and extension talks between Levy and Eriksen’s representatives have stalled in recent months, which has led to Madrid hoping they could take him to the Bernabeu this summer.
However, Levy is reported to have met Madrid officials in the Spanish capital Friday ahead of his side’s Champions League final defeat 24 hours later, and was intent on keeping his squad together. Levy is keen to give Mauricio Pochettino the tools he needs to build on another successful campaign.
Meunier has 12 clubs to choose from
Thomas Meunier said he’s had offers from up to a dozen clubs since January, and that he could be open to a move from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, a year before his contract runs out.
Speaking to Le Parisien, Meunier revealed that all of the interested parties are competing at the top of their respective divisions. Sources have told ESPN FC that Arsenal and Manchester United are two of the dozen clubs interested in the Belgium international.
The full-back also said his current employers would be foolish to let him leave for free in 12 months, just as they look to be doing with Adrien Rabiot this summer. Playing just one in every three matches and approaching 28 years old, Meunier might feel a move could provide him with more first-team football at a crucial juncture in his career.
Alonso to follow trodden path from Chelsea to Atleti
The Mirror reports that the 28-year-old flew to Madrid from Baku, Azerbaijan, two days after the Europa League final and is keen on a deal.
Atletico are losing left-back Lucas Hernandez to Bayern Munich for a whopping €80 million, as well as Diego Godin, Filipe Luis and Juanfran, and so Alonso would be an essential addition to their back line. Diego Simeone has targeted Alonso on the left of defence and Barcelona’s Nelson Semedo on the right as he looks to rebuild his rearguard.
– Fenerbahce are keen on West Ham United playmaker Manuel Lanzini, and the Mirror reports that both Manuel Pellegrini and Irons officials are ready to offer their star man a new five-year deal in an attempt to rebuff the Turkish giants. Lanzini started just eight games in 2018-19, scoring one goal, but he remains a key part of Pellegrini’s plans ahead of his second season in charge of the club.
– Edin Dzeko is on the verge of joining Inter from Roma, reports Calciomercato. The Italian outlet also suggests that Roma have identified three signings to replace him, including AC Milan’s Andre Silva, Fernando Llorente from Spurs and Andrea Belotti from Torino.
