Hello folks! Welcome to Sportskeeda's latest transfer news and rumours roundup. Despite the season now entering its business end, top clubs are also keeping their eyes open on potential transfer targets.
And as always, there are stories which make headlines irrespective of the transfer window being open or shut. On that note, let's take a look at all the top transfer news that made headlines on February 28th, 2018:
Chelsea want Casemiro to be included in a deal for Eden Hazard
Day by day, it is becoming extremely clear that Eden Hazard has set his sights on a move to Real Madrid next season. Chelsea supremo Roman Abramovic has reportedly conceded defeat in his ambition to not sell the Belgian. But the owner will only do business with Real Madrid if the Spanish giants make a player plus cash offer.
According to Don Balon, Chelsea want Casemiro + £100 million to release Eden Hazard. The Blues were earlier linked with Marco Asensio but are now fixated on landing the robust midfielder. The Brazilian is an integral part of this Real Madrid side and Chelsea's demand has definitely put Perez in a spot of bother.
Alvaro Odriozola monitored by Manchester United
A number of top clubs have been courting the 22-year-old Real Sociedad right-back in the past year or so. The Daily Mail reports that Manchester United have joined the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the race to sign Alvaro Odriozola.
The fullback has been capped by Spain and was scouted last week by United in a Europa League clash against Red Bull Salzburg. He is reportedly valued at around £18 million by Sociedad.
