Galtier blames Chelsea for failed Ziyech transfer


Paris Saint-Germain boss Christophe Galtier points the finger of blame firmly in Chelsea’s direction when it comes to Hakim Ziyech’s failed transfer.

“For various reasons, we could not make it work with the player we targeted. I have quality players, the young people will have their chance to play in this second part of the season. Obviously, in a busy schedule, you have to be careful with injuries and fatigue. Unfortunately, we could have reinforced it following the departure of Pablo (Sarabia). We could not do it. I believe that the responsibility does not lie with our club. That’s how it is, that’s life, we look ahead," he said.

Real the full quotes of Galtier on GOAL.

Lokonga speaks after loan from Arsenal


Albert Sambi Lokonga has explained his deadline loan from Arsenal to Crystal Palace, which doesn't include a buy option.

Real Madrid want to buy Adeyemi (DefensaCentral)


Real Madrid are set to bid for Borussia Dortmund star Karim Adeyemi this summer, claims DefensaCentral, as Los Blancos see the 21-year-old forward as the ideal man to play opposite Vincius Junior for many years.

That reported interest comes despite a rough first year in the Bundesliga for Adeyemi. He's battled foot injuries and managed just one league goal, scored last weekend, in his debut season in 14 appearances.

Perhaps Real Madrid feel they can pry the German forward away from Dortmund at a cut-price rate, however such a move would be risky without first seeing him produce more in the black and yellow.
