Transfer news: Neymar could block Hazard from Real Madrid

We takes a look at the biggest transfer news and rumours from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond.  

Neymar could block Hazard from Real Madrid

The two players are not viewed as compatible and Madrid is prioritising the PSG star

The arrival of Neymar could block any chance for Eden Hazard to land at Real Madrid this summer, according to Don Balon.

Madrid president Florentino Perez is known to have proritised bringing the PSG star to the Bernabeu over Hazard and believes the two players are incompatible.

So if Perez does successfully pry Neymar away from PSG, Hazard will not have Madrid interest to complete his dream move to the European champions.

Barca and Real after Jovic

Both Barcelona and Real Madrid are after Eintracht Frankfurt star Luka Jovic, according to Bild.

With 14 goals, Jovic is leading the Bundesliga in scoring and, at just 21 years old, the forward is drawing considerable attention.

The Serbian has scored five further goals in the Europa League and made an appearance at the World Cup this past summer.

Manneh set to sign with FC Cincy

Kekuta Manneh is set to join FC Cincinnati following a stint with Swiss side St. Gallen, according to the Athletic.

The winger's MLS rights belonged to the Columbus Crew, who worked out a deal with the expansion side as he rejoins the league.

Manneh previously featured for the Crew and Vancouver Whitecaps as well as Liga MX side Pachuca. 

Juventus' best Bosman signings

Juventus have again dipped into the free transfer market, this time plucking Aaron Ramsey away from Arsenal, signing the midfielder to a four-year contract.

He becomes the second Premier League player to jump to the Serie A champions in the last two seasons, as Emre Can signed with Juve on free from Liverpool last summer.

But that's nothing new for the Old Lady, and with Ramsey the latest to join, Goal looks at the Bianconeri's greatest free transfers.

Sarri's future to be decided in next two weeks

Maurizio Sarri's future at Chelsea could be decided in the next two weeks according to the Telegraph.

Sarri is under pressure to win the Europa League, with Champions League qualification deemed more important than the FA Cup or Carabao Cup, which will force him to use his stars in that competition.

If he does not qualify for the Champions League, either by the top four or Europa League Sarri is likely to be sacked and a poor close to February would see him fired earlier.

Skrtel rejected Barcelona in January

Former Liverpool and current Fenerbahce centre-back Martin Skrtel rejected Barcelona in January according to his representatives.

Mithat Halis, who is part of the group who represents the defender, says Skrtel is happy in Istanbul and did not want to sit behind Barcelona's current centre-backs. 

"Barcelona wanted to sign him and were insisting on him because they needed a central defender that was a reliable alternative, but the player didn't agree because he did not want to be a substitute for Pique and Umtiti," Halis said. 

Orlando City chasing Belgium top-flight defender

Orlando City are after defender Bruno Godeau of Belgium top-flight side Royal Excel Mouscron, according to voetbalnieuws

Godeau has a deal that lasts through June 2020, and is a former team-mate of current Orlando City playmaker Sacha Kljestan, when the two played together at Anderlecht.

Hamsik to Dalian could still happen
