Chelsea & Real agree €190m deal for Hazard
Chelsea and Real Madrid have agreed a €190 million (£170m/$222m) deal for Eden Hazard, per Le10Sport .

Everton close to £50m Richarlison deal
Everton are closing in on the £50 million ($65m) signing of Richarlison from Watford, the Daily Mail claims.
Relations between the two clubs have been strained since the Toffees approached Marco Silva to take over at Goodison Park while the Portuguese was still in charge at Vicarage Road.
However, Silva, now in the opposite dugout, is a huge fan of the 21-year-old Brazilian attacker, and the Hornets are unlikely to turn down the opportunity to make a massive profit on a player that cost a mere £11.5m ($15m) from Fluminense in 2017.
Pavard chase heats up in Germany
Bayern Munich are close to agreeing terms with Stuttgart's Benjamin Pavard, although Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the young defender, Sky Sports Germany reports.
The 22-year-old's preference is to play Champions League football, which both clubs can offer, though competition for a starting spot would be less fierce at BVB, even after Abdou Diallo's arrival.
The report claims that Pavard would prefer to live in Munich, however, and the young Frenchman could slot into the side should Jerome Boateng leave, or even move to right-back, freeing up Joshua Kimmich to play in midfield.
Sarri wants Reina at Chelsea
New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has asked the club to sign Pepe Reina from AC Milan, according to Premium Sport.
With Thibaut Courtois on the verge of completing a move to Real Madrid, the Blues are in the market for a quality replacement for the Belgian.
And Sarri, who coached Reina during the pair's time at Napoli, feels that the Spain veteran is the right man for the job at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal won't pay €30m for Andre Gomes
Arsenal have told Barcelona that they will not meet the Catalan club's €30 million (£26m/$35m) valuation of Andre Gomes, according to RAC1.
Barca are eager to offload the Portuguese, with the midfielder being largely unimpressive since his 2016 move from Valencia.
The Gunners, who are said to be the only side interested in signing Gomes, are in no rush to push through a deal and will wait for the Spanish champions to lower their demands.
Man City rule out moves for Pjanic, Thiago & Kovacic
Manchester City sources have ruled out a big-money move for Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic, Goal understands.
Reports in Italy had claimed that City boss Pep Guardiola has spoken to Pjanic in the past few days to convince him to move to the Etihad Stadium in an €80 million (£72m/$94m) deal.
City have been linked with a number of midfielders since missing out on preferred target Jorginho, but Goal understands that a move for an established name is unlikely at this stage in the window.
Lokomotiv make Vidal contact
Lokomotiv Moscow have made an approach to sign Barcelona full-back Aleix Vidal, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Vidal is looking to play regular football next season, and is also a target for Inter Milan and his former club Sevilla.

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho will attempt to convince former Monaco team-mate Kylian Mbappe to join him at Liverpool.

Juve reject Chelsea's €30m Caldara bid
Juventus have turned down offers from Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund for defender Mattia Caldara, reports Sky Sport Italia .
Chelsea, who are interested in Caldara’s team-mate Daniele Rugani, have seen a €30 million (£27m/$35m) offer for the centre-half rejected, while Dortmund’s bid of €35m (£31m/$41m), plus €5m in add-ons, was also turned down.
Caldara has yet to make his debut for Juve after spending last season on loan at former club Atalanta, and the Serie A champions are not looking to sell the Italy international.
Napoli interested in Benzema deal
Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti is interested in a reunion with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, according to Corriere dello Sport .
Benzema impressed during two seasons playing under Ancelotti in Madrid and his position as a regular starter at the Santiago Bernabeu next season is under threat.

PSG willing to sell Neymar
Paris Saint-Germain no longer consider Neymar untouchable in the face of a possible huge offer from Real Madrid for the Brazil superstar, reports Mundo Deportivo .
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is thought to value Neymar above all else, and new PSG boss Thomas Tuchel would use the money to reinforce multiple positions in his side.
The only PSG player considered off-limits by the Ligue 1 winners is teenage star Kylian Mbappe.
Willian still wants to quit Chelsea
Chelsea attacker Willian still wants to depart the club this summer, despite the appointment of Maurizio Sarri, reports the Sun .
Willian fell out with previous Blues boss Antonio Conte, so the club’s officials hoped Sarri’s hiring and playing philosophy would tempt the winger to stay.
However, Willian has already had his head turned by talk of a move to Barcelona and Real Madrid, with Brazil team-mate Philippe Coutinho talking to him during the World Cup about joining the La Liga champions.

Wenger managed in Japan with the club Nagoya Grampus Eight prior to joining Arsenal and remains a popular figure in the country.
While Wenger prefers club football, his opportunities at that level appear limited to China, which may lead him to taking Japan’s offer.
Donnarumma on Chelsea three-man shortlist
AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma has been added to a three-man shortlist of goalkeepers Chelsea want to replace Thibaut Courtois, reports the Evening Standard .
Courtois is expected to leave for Real Madrid once the Blues have lined up a replacement, and Donnarumma joins Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel and former Blues keeper Petr Cech on that list.
Milan are interested in Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata, and while it’s possible both players will switch teams, it is unlikely it will be done in a straight swap.
Navas willing to battle Courtois
Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas is willing to stay and fight for his place amid the likely arrival of Thibaut Courtois, reports AS .
While Navas has lost two major allies in former manager Zinedine Zidane and goalkeeping coach Luis Llopis, the Costa Rica international has no plans to ask for a transfer.
