Real Madrid prepared to be patient in chase for Eduardo Camavinga
The coronavirus pandemic has made the transfer market uncertain, but there was still plenty of action on Deadline Day. With the window closed across the major leagues in Europe, you can check out the latest major completed transfers across the globe.
Big 2021 planned for Real Madrid
As reported by AS, Real Madrid have delayed some of their 2020 plans to next year following the closure of the summer transfer window.
The belief is that the financial health of the club is far more important than the improvement of the playing squad, meaning that several of their planned transfers have been put off.
With a handful of Madrid players being aged 30 or over it makes sense for the club to move on as and when they can, with Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga and Napoli playmaker Fabian Ruiz being two of their primary targets.
Inter Milan open Martinez talks
Internazionale have opened contract talks with Lautaro Martinez after his Barcelona move didn't come to fruition, Calciomercato reports.
The Argentine's current deal is set to expire in June 2023, but the belief is that both parties are willing to agree to an increase considering the interest from the Spanish giants.
The 23-year-old is still valued as an important member of the squad and, while Inter may have been resigned to him leaving a few months ago, it no longer seems as if that's going to be the case.
Giroud considers Chelsea future
Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud has admitted he will be considering his Blues future in January, Sports Mole reports.
In the lead-up to France's international friendly against Ukraine, where Giroud will win his 100th cap for Les Bleus, the 34-year-old confirmed that while he may be willing to fight for his place in the starting XI, he's also prepared to re-evaluate his situation when the next transfer window opens.
“I've written a book called ‘Always Believe It' so I'm not going to go anywhere without a fight,” Giroud said.
“There is competition but I will fight and we saw the rewards of that at the end of last season. I am convinced that I have a role to play at Chelsea. We will see in January.”
– Arsenal defender William Saliba could be set for a loan move to a Championship club, the Press Association reports. The youngster looked set to make his way back to Saint-Etienne on loan for the remainder of the season before the deal fell through but, with the domestic-only transfer window still being open, the Gunners are contemplating the possibility of sending him down into England's second-tier.
– Sydney FC striker Adam Le Fondre is close to sealing a move to the Indian Super League, according to the Herald Sun. The former Reading star has scored 39 goals in 57 appearances for the Sky Blues, but appears to headed for the exit following the news that the A-League is looking to reduce the competition's salary cap next season.
