Milinkovic-Savic back on Real Madrid wishlist.

Real Madrid have rekindled their interest in Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. The club have stepped up their interest out of fear of losing him to Paris Saint-Germain, who are reportedly willing to offer €80 million for him.

Bayern let Alaba decide his own future.

Bayer Munich will leave it to David Alaba to decide whether he wants to continue at the club or part ways. The left-back turned center-back has shown no urgency to sign a new contract despite his current one set to run out in 2021.

Manchester City are considered to be his most likely destination, should Alaba makes up his mind to leave. [Mirror]

Juve plot swoop for Jorginho.

Juventus are ready to step up their pursuit of Chelsea’s Jorginho. Having worked with him at Napoli and Chelsea before, Maurizio Sarri is keen on a third reunion with his compatriot.

Juve are preparing a player-plus-cash offer for the 28-year-old, with either of Alex Sandro or Federico Bernardeschi going the other way. Negotiations are currently ongoing. However, Chelsea’s €50 million asking price appears to be dividing the parties’ opinions. [Calciomercato]
