Real Madrid's interest in Eden Hazard has cooled after a dip in form.

The longstanding Blancos target's failure to score or set up goals in five recent appearances has taken the edge off Bernabeu bosses' desires, according to reports in London.

Rumours that Manchester City would make a £75million bid for Real playmaker Isco have been quashed.

City are said to be looking closer to home, with another attempt at Leicester's Riyad Mahrez said to be on the cards.

The Foxes' Algerian winger, 27, reportedly had a run-in with club bosses in January after they stymied a deal then.

Manchester United will have to fight off competition from Barcelona and settle a £26million release clause if they want to sign Clement Lenglet.

The 22-year-old Frenchman is said to be keen to leave LaLiga side Sevilla, where he arrived for £4.4million in 2017. The defender is reportedly being considered at the Camp Nou as a replacement for Samuel Umtiti, who has been tipped for a move to Old Trafford - pending the payment of a £52million release clause.

  • David Moyes' future at West Ham is set to extend into next season after he guided the club away from the relegation zone.
  • Bournemouth, Leicester and promotion hopefuls Aston Villa are eyeing Southampton striker Charlie Austin in case the Saints suffer relegation.
  • Charlton have rewarded Lee Bowyer's fine spell as caretaker manager by giving him the job until the end of the season.
