Reports continue to link Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino with Real Madrid.
Pochettino has long been touted as future Real boss – and was tipped to succeed Zinedine Zidane prior to Julen Lopetegui taking over at the Spanish club.
Now the Sunday Mirror claim Pochettino “had a meeting” with Real chairman Florentino Perez.
The meeting apparently happened at the recent FIFA awards ceremony which both men attended.
The Sunday Mirror also claim Pochettino was approached by Real during the summer but that they opted for Lopetegui partly to avoid trying to negotiate with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
Pochettino signed a new five-year contract in May.
Meanwhile, there remains much speculation over the future of Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
Ramsey’s contract at the Emirates Stadium expires next summer and talks over a new deal have reportedly broken down.
He continues to be linked with Chelsea and Manchester United – the Sunday Express say both clubs are planning a move for him.
The Sunday Mirror, on the other hand, claim Liverpool “will lead the chase” for Ramsey, who is also apparently being eyed by Italian clubs Juventus and AC Milan.
The Mail on Sunday believe Arsenal withdrew a contract offer to Ramsey because they need to cut their wage bill after missing out on Champions League football.
And the Sunday Mirror claim Chelsea want to snap up Eden Hazard’s 15-year-old brother Ethan.
