Gossip: Liverpool eye move for ‘raging’ Real Madrid star

Eduardo Camavinga in action for Real Madrid.

Eduardo Camavinga is unhappy at Real Madrid, with Liverpool said to be ready to pounce. Meanwhile, Ralf Rangnick could return to Leipzig for a midfielder…

 

LIVERPOOL KEEN ON CRANKY CAMAVINGA
Eduardo Camavinga only joined Real Madrid in the summer, when Manchester United were thought to be interested in the France midfielder. But having struggled to secure a place in Carlo Ancelotti’s first XI, there is already talk of the teenager looking for another move.

Camavinga has managed only six starts in all competitions for Real this season, which has prompted El Nacional to link him to Liverpool.

Apparently, the 19-year-old ‘has a monumental rage’ over his situation at Real and is open to loan or permanent offers, and Jurgen Klopp is still keen to take the former Rennes star.

Having done a deal to sign Camavinga in the summer which could cost them up to £35million, Real are said to want a profit on the midfielder.

RANGNICK RETURNS TO LEIPZIG FOR MIDFIELDER
United are also looking for midfielders, though not with replacing Paul Pogba in mind.

Fabrizio Romano says the Red Devils’ renewal offer to Pogba is still on the table, where it has been since the summer. There are no negotiations with other clubs over a possible January sale, while Pogba is still said to be assessing his options. Indeed, the Mirror reports that if Pogba wants to leave United next month, he will have to push for a move.

But Ralf Rangnick is still exploring the market for midfielders and the Mirror reckons the United boss could make contact with former club RB Leipzig to discuss a deal for Amadou Haidara.

The story goes that Rangnick is looking for a tall and dominating presence in midfield and 23-year-old Haidara could fit the bill. Even if he is only 5ft 9in…

 

SPURS EYE SERIE A-BASED CENTRE-BACKS
Tottenham are scouring the market for centre-backs and this morning are linked with a couple from Antonio Conte’s neck of the woods…

Spurs have had a previous interest in Stefan de Vrij and Rai Sport reckons Conte’s arrival has reignited their desire to land the Inter Milan defender.

De Vrij is entering the final 18 months of his contract at the San Siro, where he played for Conte before the manager moved on.

The Sun rehashes a report from Swiss website 4-4-2.com that suggests Spurs are keen on Matthijs De Ligt – but they won’t pay the ridiculous release clause that comes into play next summer.

De Ligt could leave Juventus for around £130million at the end of the season, with Barcelona and Chelsea interested. But those clubs too would also be looking to negotiate on that figure.
