Inter Milan set to sign Real Madrid target Christian Eriksen
Danish news outlet Ekstra Bladet via AS are reporting that Inter Milan have won the race to sign Christian Eriksen. The Tottenham midfielder will become a free agent this summer and can sign a pre-contract agreement with other clubs this month.
Eriksen was wanted by Real Madrid last summer but Los Blancos failed to sign the 27-year-old. As compared to his hefty price tag in the previous transfer window, the Dane could now be available for just €20 million.
If reports in Denmark are true, Real Madrid might count themselves unlucky to miss out on the talented midfielder.
Los Blancos close to signing Reinier
The club are expected to sign 17-year-old Reinier from Flamengo and send him back on loan for the rest of the season. Reports in Spain are claiming that the youngster could join Real Madrid for €30 million plus add-ons.
Reinier made 14 appearances in the Brazilian league last season, netting six goals and providing two assists. He also signed a contract extension in November 2019, with the new terms set to expire in 2024. Previously, the Brazilian has also been scouted by La Liga rivals, Barcelona.
Wolves manager confirms Vallejo is expected to end his disappointing loan spell early
Things have not gone well for Jesus Vallejo thus far. The Real Madrid centre-back was sent on a season-long loan deal to Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer.
But he has struggled for game time in England, managing just two Premier League appearances.failed to be a regular for Nuno Espirito Santo's side.
And Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo revealed in a pre-match conference that Vallejo will leave the Premier League club early.
"I'm going to be clear: Jesús probably is going because he wants to play."
"He's a young and talented player that we brought here with high expectations, but it didn't work out. It's time for him to go and find a club where he can play and keep on progressing because the talent is there."
Vallejo is expected to return to Real Madrid before going out on loan once again.
