According to a report from Sport, both Chelsea and Man City have been given renewed hope in their pursuit of the Barcelona transfer target.

Barcelona transfer target Lautaro Martinez is set to ignite a transfer battle for his services between Premier League giants Man City and Chelsea.

The Inter Milan striker is reportedly on the verge of signing for the Catalan giants but that hasn’t stopped both the Premier League clubs from having a go at his signing.

The Sun has reported that with Barcelona unable to convince the Nerazzurri to sell the Uruguayan superstar, both Chelsea and Man City are hopeful that they could steal the march on the Camp Nou giants by offering Martinez and his current club better terms.

Spanish news outlet Don Balon reports that Zinedine Zidane’s obsession of signing French players for Real Madrid has frustrated his boss Florentino Perez.

Los Blancos president is reportedly unhappy that the 3-time Champions League winning manager is unable to look beyond his country mates when identifying potential new signings for the club.

Zidane is currently looking to strengthen the club’s midfield department by bringing in French World Cup winner Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

The Real Madrid boss is convinced that his personal relationship with the midfielder, combined with the lure of playing for one of the biggest sides in Europe, would be enough for Pogba to end his three-year long relationship with the Red Devils.
