Real Madrid are strongly interested in RB Salzburg’s Benjamin Šeško. The 18 year old striker’s market value is €8m.
Šeško has 7 goals & 3 assists in 16 apps (827 mins) for RB Salzburg this season.
Florian Wirtz is being watched regularly by FC Bayern, Manchester City, United, Chelsea and Real Madrid. Bayern have been after the player for a long time (since his Köln days). Fee is expected to reach the €100m mark in the next couple of years.
As of now, neither Bayern Munich or Real Madrid are in ‘advanced talks’ with Antonio Rudiger.
PSG director Leonardo to L’Équipe: “It’s lasted for 2 years. The transfer window is over, Real Madrid need to STOP behaving like this. They need to stop! Mbappé is PSG player and the club wants this relationship to last. It’s a lack of respect [to PSG]”.
“I did not appreciate the fact that they said I wanted to leave the last week of August. I said at the end of July that I wanted to go.”
Kylian Mbappe has insisted he informed PSG of his desire to leave for Real Madrid in the summer, criticising his current club for their handling of his failed transfer.
Karim Benzema has been involved in 16 goals in eight LaLiga games this season (nine goals and seven assists), the best start in goal involvement at this stage in the competition in the 21st century after Cristiano Ronaldo.
karim Benzema was awarded a spot on WhoScored’s team of the month, and he happens to be the only Real Madrid player on the list for the month of September.
Didier Deschamps when asked on Téléfoot whether he thinks Karim Benzema deserves the Ballon d’Or this season: “Yes.”
Camavinga was subbed off at halftime against Espanyol due to his foot being stepped on in the first half. He will have an examination with the French u-21s and then decide whether he’ll stay with the national team or return to Madrid.
At the moment, it’s difficult for him to put his boot on due to the swelling and pain.
Almost all of Marcelo, Mendy, Camavinga, Carvajal, Isco, Asensio and Mariano are expected to be recovered after the international break.
