Eden Hazard Real Madrid claim

Marco Asensio Asensio has poured cold water on a move to Real Madrid for Hazard.

Real have been continually linked with a move for Hazard and Florentino Perez is a long-term admirer.

But Asensio has dismissed the rumours, as he said: “It’s speculation. We will see if anyone comes, but right now it’s just speculation.”

N’Golo Kante transfer revelation

Manchester United were silly not to make a move for Chelsea star N’Golo Kante when they had the chance.

That is the view of former Premier League star-turned-pundit Keith Andrews.

Kante has bossed the middle of the park for the Blues, but Andrews is surprised United didn’t do more to land Kante in 2016 and thinks Jose Mourinho missed a trick.

“He is the best in the business at winning the ball back and keeping things simple. In terms of the contract, no-brainer,” Andrews said on The Debate.

“And how cheap was he each time… £5.5m to Leicester and even £32m to Chelsea.

“How Manchester United didn’t go and get him to partner Pogba in midfield, I have no idea.”
