Italian outlet Tuttosport are reporting that Real Madrid are prepared to pay €35M for Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko, but perhaps they have misread the price Newcastle have put on their midfield powerhouse – it’s £35M.
With today’s exchange rate (1 euro=0.84 pounds ) €35M is about £29.4M so that’s about £5M below what Newcastle want for the French star of the Euro semi-final and final.

But the closeness of the fee the Spanish giants are willing to pay may have Moussa come out and say Real Madrid have always been his dream club since childhood.
But we’ll have to wait and see on that one.
Juventus have been interested in Moussa as a replacement for Paul Pogba, if the deal to have him move to the Red Devils for around £100M is ever completed.
If it doesn’t go through then we could see Manchester United make a move for the 6ft 2ins tall midfielder and he’s a lot cheaper than Pogba.
And Moussa has said he would prefer to stay in the Premier League so that would seem to favor the Red Devils.
Everton are also interested but they are not a Champions League club and Moussa wouldn’t join them.
We should be able to get the full £35M for Moussa and the sooner the better.
But maybe he’s under-valued?
