Premier League transfer news and rumours

Salgado: Kane is the No.9 Real need

Former Real Madrid defender Michel Salgado says the Spanish club should sign Tottenham and England star Harry Kane.

Salgado told talkSPORT that he believes Neymar is Real’s No.1 transfer target, but Kane would fit the bill for a new No.9. 

“The first target I think is going to be Neymar for sure,” said Salgado. “And then I don’t think we will have enough money to get Harry Kane. But obviously he is the kind of No.9 we are looking for.

“So let’s see what happens but I think the fans would like him to come to Real Madrid but [Spurs chairman Daniel] Levy won’t like it.”

Tottenham striker Kane scored 30 Premier League goals last season and is currently captaining England at the World Cup. He has scored six goals in Russia to lead the Three Lions to the semi-finals, where they play Croatia tomorrow.

Eden Hazard: Chelsea to Barcelona

Yesterday Eden Hazard was being linked with a move to Real Madrid, today it’s Barcelona who are reportedly interested in signing the Chelsea and Belgium star.

ESPN, via Spanish publication Sport, says that the Catalans are “ready to make playmaker Hazard their marquee signing of the summer”.

Despite Barca’s interest, the player himself may prefer a move to Real. As reported by Marca, Hazard called the Madrid shirt “special” even without Zinedine Zidane as head coach. But he also said he is “fine at Chelsea”.
