Barcelona's world-record bid rejected, Real Madrid confident of signing €80M midfielder and more La Liga news: 7th January 2019
Real Madrid to sack Santiago Solari?
Real Madrid did not have a great start under Julen Lopetegui this season and he was sacked just 3 months in. Santiago Solari took over and he had a brilliant start until he was given the permanent deal.
Solari too has failed to deliver ever since he penned the permanent contract and it looks like his days at the club are also numbered. Daily Express report that Florentino Perez is looking at the possibility of sacking the manager if results don't improve.
Madrid confident of signing Christian Eriksen
Real Madrid are looking for a long-term replacement for Luka Modric and have identified Christian Eriksen as their top target. The Tottenham star has his contract expiring in the summer 2020 but has not agreed to a new deal.
According to AS, Madrid are confident of luring him to the Bernabeu in the summer and also confident of getting a deal done with Spurs. The Danish star is one of their top players but with him not signing a new deal, they might have to cash-in.
Eriksen is valued at €80 million on Transfermarkt but OK Diario claim that Spurs might demand at least double of that.
