Barcelona want Christian Eriksen, 25, and will sign him in the January window. That’s if Lionel Messi, 30, approves the deal for the Tottenham midfielder
Meanwhile, Real Madrid won’t be selling Gareth Bale, 28, in January, says Zinedine Zidane. Not unless they can get a replacement who isn’t cup-tied for the Champions League.
Curiously enough, Arsenal are ready to listen to offers for Alexis Sanchez, 28, in January. Just say, Sr. Perez, that he’s not cup-tied in the Champions League. Neither is Mesut Ozil, 29, or Jack Wilshere, 25, who the North London club are ready to push through the door marked “Do One”.

Manchester United were given a boost in their chase for Danny Rose, 27, when Tottenham scouted Bologna left-back Adam Masina, 23.
Paris St Germain are poised to move for Nice midfielder, Jean Seri, 26, despite their FFP problems over Neymar Jr., 26, and Kylian Mbappe, 18.
