Thibaut Courtois talks with Real Madrid halted as Chelsea seek replacement

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has played down rumours of a move to bring Real Madrid ace Gareth Bale back to the club.

We thought that Eden Hazard was top of Real Madrid's summer transfer wish-list, but it looks as though they may have been priced out of a move for the Belgian.

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to cool their interest in Eden Hazard. But, Chelsea have remained determined in their bid to keep retain the player, with Maurizio Sarri insisting that he will hold talks with his unsettled to players to keep them at Stamford Bridge. What do you reckon, Blues?

Experts could easily spot the differences - donkeys are smaller in size, with pointed ears and black smudges on the face. Mahmoud Sarhan, whose photos went viral, said that the enclosure contained two animals and both had been painted.

The 38-year-old was released by Huddersfield at the end of last season, without making a Premier League appearance, and jumped at the chance of the move to Stamford Bridge.

A deal for top target Jordan Pickford - another who impressed at the World Cup - is proving hard to complete, with Butland viewed as an adequate alternative.

"I understand the good players are going to be linked with good clubs which is great, I get that".

"We hope to be able to keep him here and do it with the right motivations". Chelsea have Rob Green and Willy Caballero now as their back-up keepers, but will undoubtedly require a first class choice heading into the new season. United are also reportedly monitoring Gary Cahill's situation at Chelsea in a window where numerous exits from The Blues are expected.
