Juventus line up two Ronaldo replacements
Moise Kean and Eden Hazard are both reportedly on Juventus’ transfer wishlist as potential Cristiano Ronaldo replacements.
The Bianconeri have no interest in Arsenal captain Pierre Aubameyang. Re-signing Kean from Everton is the priority. The forward would be happy to return to Turin, and Juventus could seal a deal soon. [Fabrizio Romano]
As for Hazard, Juventus have allegedly looked into signing him. The Old Lady would like a loan deal, as it leaves them enough money to re-sign Miralem Pjanic from Barcelona. Hazard could consider a move to Italy as his opportunities at Real Madrid may suffer if Kylian Mbappe arrives. [Marca]

Could Mbappe join Real Madrid in January instead?
Despite continued talks with Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid could postpone a transfer deal for Kylian Mbappe until January.
While PSG have not rejected Real Madrid’s second bid of €170 million, the Spanish giants feel the Parisians are ‘not being practical in their negotiations’. Therefore, they could delay a deal by the start of 2022.
Should that be the case, Mbappe can sign a pre-contract agreement with Real Madrid for a free transfer next summer. [Sky Sports News]
