Kevin De Bruyne not interested in Real Madrid

Today’s rumors start with Kevin De Bruyne with news that Real Madrid have apparently “registered an interest” in the midfielder.

City Watch claim a source close to the player has told them Madrid have been in touch with De Bruyne’s agent Patrick De Koster.

However, Zinedine Zidane’s side look set to be disappointed, De Bruyne has apparently told them he has no interest in moving to the Bernabeu and is set to sign a new City deal. Yay!

City open talks over new Sterling deal

Another player set to extend his contract is Raheem Sterling with City chiefs ready to begin negotiations over a new deal.

According to Sky Sports, the club are ready to talk about his future even though his current contract does not expire until 2020.

Sterling has been in sizzling form this season with 13 goals already in all competitions.

City and Arsenal both want Evans

Meanwhile, those Jonny Evans to City rumors are refusing to go away, but this time there’s a twist as Arsenal have apparently joined the fray.

The Telegraph report that Pep still wants Evans, even more so now that John Stones is injured, although Real Sociedad’s Inigo Martinez is also an option.

West Brom, meanwhile, could be tempted to finally cash-in on Evans for £30 million as his contract expires in 18 months and he’s unlikely to sign a new deal at the Hawthorns.

Arsenal receive two Alexis Sanchez bids

And finally today, we end with news that Arsenal have already received two offers for Alexis Sanchez, which may force Manchester City to move for the forward in January.

City had wanted to wait until the end of the season, but with two “unnamed” clubs having already signalled an intent, do not want to risk missing out on the Chilean.

This is all according to the Manchester Evening News who report City could now offer Arsenal £20 million for Sanchez in January.
