Fiorentina want Kurt Zouma on loan, Manchester United will return for £29million Felipe Anderson in January, and Real Madrid rejected a £110million bid for Cristiano Ronaldo.
FIORENTINA WANT ZOUMA LOAN
Serie A outfit Fiorentina are interested in taking Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma on loan in January, according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
Considering Zouma has featured in all four of Chelsea’s games this season, it seems unlikely, but the Italian outlet is reporting that the Viola had considered making an offer in the summer, and will renew their interest in January.
With an ageing John Terry, Gary Cahill struggling for form, a rapidly declining right-back in Branislav Ivanovic and, well, Papy Djilobodji as his other central defensive options, we can’t quite envisage Jose Mourinho sanctioning Zouma’s exit.
UNITED TO RENEW ANDERSON INTEREST
Another one to expect in January, with Manchester United reportedly ready to renew their long-held interest in Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson.
This comes from TuttoMercatoWeb (sorry), who claim ‘the offensive of the Red Devils has already happened’ with regards to a winter move. A price of 40million euros, or around £29million, is floated around by the Italian website.
Tutto. Mercato. Web. That is all.
REAL REJECTED HUGE RONALDO BID
We’re going a little continental now, with news that Real Madrid rejected a £110million offer from PSG for Cristiano Ronaldo on transfer deadline day.
Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte are the culprits for this one, and they also claim that Real knocked the bid back instantly. That’s that, then.
