Roma targeting Mariano Diaz

Roma are increasingly interested in Real Madrid forward Mariano Diaz, but hope to have him on loan with option to buy.

The 26-year-old Dominican struggled for playing time last season with four goals in 22 competitive appearances.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and reports from Spain, Mariano Diaz could be the replacement for Edin Dzeko once the Bosnian moves to Inter.

The price-tag is much the same as Dzeko, €20m, but the Giallorossi would prefer to take Mariano on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.

James added to Real Madrid squad

Napoli and Atletico Madrid transfer target James Rodriguez has been given the Number 16 jersey at Real Madrid and added to the website.

The Colombia international had until now been notable by his absence in the gallery of players for the 2019-20 season.

He returned from a two-year loan at Bayern Munich and was expected to move on again this summer, but Napoli only wanted him on loan with option to buy, while the Merengues are reticent to hand over a talent to Atletico Madrid.

The Coach took them to historic heights in 2010 when winning the Champions League, Scudetto and Coppa Italia.

When his final match in charge, the Champions League Final against Bayern Munich, was played in Madrid, he had already signed for Real.

“I have to tell you something I’ve never said before,” Mourinho confessed in a special interview with Italian online platform DAZN.

Juve: James to replace Dybala?

AS is reporting Juventus could hijack Napoli negotiations and replace Paulo Dybala with Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez.

Dybala’s Juve career looks like ending this month, with Paris Saint-Germain and Inter in for the forward if Tottenham Hotspur fail to secure a deal on Thursday.

With that in mind, AS claims Juve have suddenly shown an interest in James, whose proposed move to Napoli continues to stall.

The newspaper explains Cristiano Ronaldo has already approved of the Colombian’s arrival from their time together at Madrid.

ADL: 'Napoli evaluating many names'

Aurelio De Laurentiis assures Napoli are “evaluating many names other than James Rodriguez, Hirving Lozano and Mauro Icardi,” but has no Nicolas Pepe regrets.

“We are evaluating many names other than James Rodriguez, Lozano and Icardi,” the President told Sky Sport Italia.

“So much so that I made a large offer for Pepe, but we were unable to get him. Arsenal have five times the revenue of Napoli, so they will have simply offered him more money. Never mind, we’ll find another Pepe.

The news comes from La Repubblica and the Corriere dello Sport newspapers, after Fenerbahce saw their approach shot down immediately by the player.
