Willian offered to Real Madrid
Chelsea has given Real Madrid the opportunity to sign Brazilian international Willian, reports in Spain.
Real Madrid has only eight days until the transfer window closes and they have not signed a substitute for Cristiano Ronaldo, who left to join Juventus.
Chelsea of Maurizio Sarri rejected three quotations from Barcelona for Willian with more than £ 55 million.
But the Spanish radio station Onda Cero claims that the Premier League club has changed its position.
According to reports, Chelsea offered the playmaker, 30, to Real Madrid only for the European champions to reject the proposal.
Cristiano Ronaldo against Lionel Messi
Cristiano Ronaldo seems to have closed his battle with Lionel Messi by leaving Real Madrid and La Liga behind, says Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde.
Cristiano Ronaldo's time in Spain saw him fight against Messi when El Clasico competes with Real and Barcelona fighting it out.
And the duo took on the Ballon d & # 39; Or-prize as an aside – with honors even since Kaka had both won them in 2007.
Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are not under pressure this season, however, unless Barcelona takes Juventus into the Champions League.
And Valverde claims that the couple will play in different divisions, that means their battle is over.
"The departure of Ronaldo seems to have ended the competition between Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, because people rarely call one without mentioning the other," Valverde told the official Barcelona website.
"Many people are also interested, to see how it affects Real Madrid's football and what they can do in the transfer market, and also knowing that Ronaldo is at a different club and what that could mean for La Liga and the Champions League also, "Valverde added.
Loan from Real Madrid
Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard has the Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem on loan for the season.
The 19-year-old joined Real in a controversial step by Stromsgodset three years ago, when he made his debut in the Norwegian capital at the age of 15.
He played only two senior competitions for the Spanish giants and has lent in Heerenveen for 18 months.
"Vitesse has shown that it gives young players a chance to dare", he said. "I am happy with the opportunity that Vitesse offers me."
