Real Madrid step up interest in Bale
Real Madrid are ready to reignite their interest in Tottenham star Gareth Bale, AS has revealed.
Los Blancos have been closely following the Welsh winger for a while now, and they could finally send an official proposal.
Jose Mourinho is desperate to add few more quality players to the ranks in the winter and the 23-year-old is his number one target.
Tottenham are not willing to negotiate the sale of their prized asset, but it is believed an offer in the region of £50 million would do the trick.
Gareth Bale has revealed on numerous occasions that he plans to leave England in the future, with his former teammate Luka Modric inviting the Welshman last week to join him at Santiago Bernabeu.
The Wales international joined Tottenham in the summer of 2007 and has since scored 24 goals in 120 Premier League appearances for Spurs.
Milan to cash in on star trio
Italian newspaper Il Corriere dello Sport understands that AC Milan are ready to cash in on up to three high-profile players in January.
The Rossoneri are desperate to reinforce the squad in the winter, but they first need to raise the cash by selling their own players.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Milan plan to raise around €50 million by cashing in on Alexandre Pato, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Robinho.
By getting rid of the three star players, the Rossoneri would also save around €30 million in wages.
All three players have been struggling for form this season, but they are still held in high regard by Europe’s top clubs.
Bayern Munich are believed to be readying bid for Kevin-Prince Boateng, while Chelsea remain keen on Alexandre Pato.
As far as Robinho is concerned, he is expected to return to Brazil, with his former club Santos leading the race for his signature.
Marseille rule out Remy sale
French giants Olympique de Marseille have denied reports linking star forward Loic Remy with a January exit.
The France international is followed by Premier League clubs Tottenham and Chelsea, and was widely tipped to move across the Channel in the winter.
However, Marseille boss Elie Baup is adamant the talented forward is not leaving Velodrome.
“He (Loic Remy) remains a high level player. The club has always relied on him,” Elie Baup told reporters.
“We rush things today and it is his efficiency, which is necessary for our results which are also important for him. After that, there is no question about whether he should go or not.”
Loic Remy has scored 27 Ligue 1 goals during the first two seasons at the club, but he has yet to get on the scoresheet this term.
The 25-year-old missed the Euro 2012 as well as the start of the league campaign through injury, and has only made six substitute appearances in the league this season.
