Real Madrid eye €120M deal, Barcelona star desperate to leave and more La Liga News – 21st November 2018
Arturo Vidal to AC Milan?
Arturo Vidal might be set for a Serie A return if reports in SPORT are to be believed. The Spanish publication has reported that AC Milan are keen on signing him – 6 months after he left arch-rivals, Inter Milan.
Vidal hasn't had a dream start to his career at Camp Nou and has been on the bench more often than not. He is reportedly set for a rare start this weekend as Ivan Rakitic is out of the match vs Atletico Madrid.
The Serie A side are keen on bolstering their midfield and have set sights on several stars. Reports suggest that Cesc Fabregas is their top priority and have already begun negotiations with him.
Barcelona scouting Luis Suarez's replacement
Luis Suarez is 31-years-old and Barcelona are desperately looking to sign a long-term replacement for him. Paco Alcacer was supposed to be that signing but he failed to impress at Camp Nou and the Catalan side are now looking elsewhere.
ESPN reports that Barcelona have identified 3 long-term replacements and are scouting them regularly this season. Krzysztof Piatek, Nicolas Pepe and Luka Jovic are the three names mentioned in the report.
All three of the strikers have been in very good form and are on the radar of several other clubs too. Jovic could be the cheapest option as he as a €45 million release clause on his contract at Benfica.
Rafinha eye Barcelona exit
Rafinha's father has confirmed that they are looking for an exit route from Camp Nou. The midfielder's father has blasted the manager for not playing him regularly and also said that he is looking for a club that will play him regularly.
"It's madness, it doesn't make sense. The truth is we try for Rafa to have a situation in which he plays regularly," he said.
"We have to find an exit because here it's too complicated. He's been here for two years, he plays very little, and he needs a club that gives him 30 or 40 matches per season," added Mazinho, Rafinha's father.
