Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is reportedly fuming at Chelsea after they blocked his exit, while the Blues have told Real Madrid to cough up for a defender.
Loftus-Cheek was expected to flourish for the Blues this season under new boss Maurizio Sarri, having impressed at the World Cup in Russia for England.
However, his future at Stamford Bridge appears to in doubt after playing just 22 minutes of the season so far.
Loftus-Cheek spent last campaign on loan with Crystal Palace, a move which helped him earn his place in the Three Lions squad.
However, The S*n claims that he ‘fears a lack of game time’ could count against him when Gareth Southgate names his first post-World Cup selection later this week.
Loftus-Cheek has therefore sought another loan move to maximise his playing opportunities, but The Sun say he has been left ‘fuming’ after Chelsea rejected approaches from Monaco and Schalke.
He ‘has lost patience’ with the club, who are adamant they will not lose the player ahead of Friday’s European transfer deadline.
Meanwhile, Italian paper Tuttosport claims that Chelsea have slapped a €60m price tag on reported Real Madrid target Marcos Alonso.
The LaLiga giants may apparently lose Marcelo to Juventus for €50m, and Los Blancos would then be happy to pay €60m (£54m) to land the Spaniard.
