Real eyeing Ricardo Rodriguez
Spanish daily newspaper Marca is reporting that Real Madrid are considering summer swoop for Wolfsburg hotshot Ricardo Rodriguez.
Los Blancos aim to offload Fabio Coentrao this summer and recruit a new left-back to challenge Marcelo for a starting berth.
And with their top target Jose Gaya extending his deal with Valencia, Real Madrid have turned their attention towards Ricardo Rodriguez.
The highly rated defender has been putting in some strong performances for club and country for a couple of years now, and it is only a matter of time before he joins a top European side.
Seeing as their prized asset has a deal until June 2019 at Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg value him at €30 million.
Ricardo Rodriguez, 22, boasts impressive stats for a defender, having managed 17 goals and 21 assists in 121 competitive appearances for the Wolves.
Man City to bid for Alex Sandro
Premier League giants Manchester City are readying summer bid for FC Porto full-back Alex Sandro, according to A Bola.
The Citizens are not entirely satisfied with the performances of Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov, and one of them is expected to leave in the near future.
As a result, Manchester City are in the market for a left-sided defender and they appear hot on the trail of FC Porto’s Alex Sandro.
Despite the fact that the Brazilian only has one more year left on his contract at Estadio do Dragao, the Citizens are reportedly preparing a €25 million proposal for his services.
Italian champions Juventus are showing interest in Alex Sandro as well, but they will not offer more than €15 million.
Manchester City have emerged as one of the main candidates for the Premier League title having signed Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph, and they can be backed at 11/4 to win outright.
Toronto FC agree deal for Moroccan defender
Toronto FC have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Ahmed Kantari from Lens, L’Equipe understands.
The 30-year-old is free to negotiate a Bosman deal with interested clubs after his contract with Lens expired last month.
And while he was on the verge of joining French second division side Dijon, Kantari eventually decided to move to the United States.
The Morocco international has a deal in place to join Toronto FC and the transfer should be made official in the coming days.
Even Dijon president Olivier Delcourt confirmed that Kantari would not be arriving at Stade Gaston Gerard after changing his mind.
The centre-back began his career at Paris Saint-Germain before also representing Strasbourg, Brest and Lens in France.
