The chapter in the Spanish capital could end in the winter, as the “Daily Star” reports, Real has agreed to a winter loan.

Almost 100 million euros for a defender? This seems to be possible this winter. As the Spanish side “El Desmarque” writes, Manchester City is ready to dig deep into the pocket for a new central defender.
The object of desire: Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan. The Slovenian has been playing at the Nerazzurri since 2017 and is recommended there for higher tasks. Together with Aymeric Laporte, Skriniar is to form the Citizens’ new center-back duo and ensure greater stability.
To buy the 24-year-old early from his working paper dated 2023, Manchester would have to pay around 95 million euros, it says. This would make Skriniar the most expensive defender in the world, which Harry Maguire currently holds (for 87 million euros from Leicester City to Manchester United).
City must expect competition from Madrid in poker for the defender. Zinedine Zidane is also said to have an eye on Skriniar. In addition, Kalidou Koulibaly (SSC Napoli) and Diego Carlos (Sevilla FC) are considered candidates for the royal team.

+++ 28.01.2020 | 12:04 pm | Barcelona is courting Aubameyang +++
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been captain of Arsenal since the beginning of November – actually an argument that should bind the Gabonese to the Gunners in the long term. As the “Sun” reports, FC Barcelona could now come in between.
The Catalans are desperately looking for a replacement for Luis Suárez, who was seriously injured in the knee. In the worst case, the attacker will be out for the rest of the season.
In addition to Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain is also considered an interested party. The departure of Edinson Cavani is expected there. Either in January, but at the latest in summer, a position in the storm center will be vacant in Paris.
+++ 28.01.2020 | 9:55 am | Younes to the Bundesliga by barter? +++
The SSC Napoli is working intensively on a commitment from Jean-Philippe Mateta from 1. FSV Mainz 05. For this, the Serie A club has offered its offensive player Amin Younes to swap.
The five-time German international hardly comes into play this season. After agreement with those responsible, the 26-year-old, who has played for Gladbach 26 times in the Bundesliga, can leave the club in winter.
According to “L’Équipe”, Naples and Mainz have been in concrete negotiations since Monday. The offer provides for a transfer fee of 20 million euros including the addition of Younes.
The zero-five hope that their 22-year-old attacker will remain, who only made his comeback in December after his meniscus ruptured. Sports director Rouven Schröder and Co. are already exploring the market for alternatives, they say.

+++ 28.01.2020 | 9:14 am | Frankfurt is looking for a new central defender +++
In the first half of the season, Eintracht Frankfurt’s defensive line was not saddle-proof at times. Reinforcements could come from France shortly before the end of the transition period.
As the “L’Équipe” reports, the eagles vie for Alexander Djiku. The 24-year-old central defender has been under contract with the Ligue 1 club Racing Strasbourg since summer and played twice against Frankfurt in the Europa League qualification.
The tactical system of the team from Alsace is quite similar to that of Eintracht. The back team acts flexibly in a chain of four or five. Frankfurt coach Adi Hütter switched his game idea to a defensive line with four defensive players in winter. He celebrated his first success with the recent 2-0 win against leaders RB Leipzig.
In terms of tactics, Djiku would fit perfectly with Eintracht. However, it is questionable whether Strasbourg would like to give up the regular player again after only half a year. In addition, AS Monaco is also said to be involved in poker. A change may not be possible until summer.
+++ 28.01.2020 | 8:17 am | BVB farewell to Alcácer perfect? +++

Accordingly, the Frenchman should serve as an alternative on the wing for the injury-prone Kingsley Coman. But Lemar should not be cheap under any circumstances. According to the report, Atlético calls around 60 million euros for the attacker.
Lemar is not used as desired by the Spaniards. Since moving from AS Monaco to Atlético in 2018, the 24-year-old has only played 64 times. He scored a meager three goals and six assists.
+++ 27.01.2020 | 8:15 pm | Canada youngster plays on Schalke before +++

“Of course, his departure for our U23 is a sporting loss, because Charalambos is always good for goals and assists. But for him the change is a great opportunity that we didn’t want to miss,” Borussia’s young director Roland Virkus comments on the deal on the homepage of the club.
+++ 27.01.2020 | 03:35 pm | Bayer grabs Effzeh talent Wirtz +++
1. FC Köln has lost the fight for its talent Florian Wirtz. As the “kicker” reports, the captain of the Cologne U17 will not extend his expiring contract, but will switch to Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

+++ 27.01.2020 | 3:25 pm | Barca thinks about Werner +++
After the serious injury to Luis Suárez, a gap has emerged in the FC Barcelona storm. Lautaro Martínez and Rodrigo Moreno fell through the grid with superstar Lionel Messi because they stand in the way of a possible return from Neymar in the summer and could permanently take the place from his friend Suárez. At least the portal “Don Balon” reports.
Instead, Timo Werner should now become the object of desire. However, the magazine rules out a winter change, as Barca will not pay the transfer fee of 80 million euros set by RB Leipzig in January.
RB is also known to be fighting for the German championship and accordingly has no interest in letting Werner go.
+++ 27.01.2020 | 3:15 pm | Bayern flirt Eriksen on the way to Inter +++
“It’s not nice to be in such a situation on January 25th,” said José Mourinho unsatisfied last weekend when he was asked about Inter Milan’s offer for Christian Eriksen.
The 27-year-old is already in Milan and is doing the medical check. Nevertheless, since it became clear that he would change, he “behaved very, very professionally,” said Mourinho.
The Dane’s contract expires in the summer, so January is the last chance to collect a transfer fee. According to the “Transfermarkt”, this will probably be 20 million euros.
In return, the Spurs plan to draw the 60 million euro purchase option from Giovani Lo Celso. The 23-year-old has so far been loaned from Betis Sevilla to London for 16 million euros. “I think the boy deserves such a decision. He makes the club’s decision for the option easy,” said Mourinho.
+++ 27.01.2020 | 3:00 pm | Arsenal’s and Everton’s turn to James +++
Is ex-Bavaria star James Rodríguez on the island? According to Independent, both Arsenal and Everton, who are coached by ex-coach Carlo Ancelotti, are said to be interested in the Colombian.
The Gunners have already said that they can only act with loans in this transfer window. A winter change of the midfielder, which Real Madrid would only let go with a very good offer, therefore seems unlikely.
With Dani Ceballos, a loaner of the royal team is already in the Arsenal squad. However, due to injuries, the Spaniard has not played a minute of operation since the beginning of November and is unsatisfied with his situation in North London.

Because the keeper Joel Pereira offered is not in Sporting’s sense, the transfer is currently pending.
+++ 27.01.2020 | 1:20 pm | HSV flirt from the market +++
For a long time, Hamburger SV was considered a serious candidate for a transfer of the 20-year-old Slovakian attacker Róbert Bozeník. But finally the HSV decided to lend Bayer Leverkusen’s Joel Pohjanpalo.

+++ 27.01.2020 | 1:10 pm | RB Leipzig’s problem child moves to England +++
After only six months, Jean-Kévin Augustin ended the AS Monaco chapter prematurely. The French striker, who is still under contract with RB Leipzig, moves on to Leeds United in the second English league. Leeds has an option to buy Augustin, the club said.
For Monaco, Augustin played only 13 games, mostly short assignments. The 22-year-old did not score a goal.

There he had rarely written positive sports headlines, however, and had repeatedly attracted attention due to disciplinary problems.
