All the top LaLiga news in one place!
Inter Milan confirm Diego Godin deal
Inter Milan general manager, Beppe Marotta has confirmed that they are close to sealing the deal for Diego Godin. The Uruguayan is set to join on a free transfer once his deal at Atletico Madrid runs out in the summer.
Talking to Sky Italia, Marotta said, “I'm delighted for him and his goal (in the Champions League win against Juventus on Wednesday). I can't go into too much detail regarding the negotiations, but I'd say we're at an advanced stage and this makes me optimistic. I think it can be made official quite soon.”
Manchester United were also interested in signing him and made an offer for him twice – once in the summer and once in January. However, the defender rejected the move both times and has now opted to join the San Siro side.
Real Madrid agree deal with Adrien Rabiot
Adrien Rabiot was left in the middle of nowhere after he rejected the final offer by PSG and then Barcelona retracted their contract offer. He had also rebuffed a move to Tottenham claiming it was 'a step down' and was set to be without a club in the summer.
All that has changed now and Real Madrid have come to his rescue if reports in Spain are to be believed. Florentino Perez has opted to take him to Bernabeu as a backup midfielder.
Reports suggest that Los Blancos have offered him €12M a year contract with another €15M as his signing on bonus.
Marcus Rashford wants Real Madrid move
Marcus Rashford is in the middle of contract talks with Manchester United but has one eye on a move to Real Madrid too. Reports in Spain also claim that Los Blancos are also interested in signing him as a replacement for Karim Benzema.
The young English striker's contract at Old Trafford expires in the summer of 2020 and the club has offered him a new six-year deal. While the offer is lucrative, the striker is keeping his options open and will take him time before putting pen to paper as per the report.
