According to GOAL France, PSG could be looking to move some pieces in the upcoming January transfer window and clear some deadweight from the squad. And, two of their players, Carlos Soler and Pablo Sarabia, are on the radars of Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.

Los Rojiblancos are looking at an important transfer window with some changes set to be made by Diego Simeone & co. in the coming weeks.

A new striker has been earmarked as a top priority as Matheus Cunha has already left and Joao Felix is expected to be on his way out as well. However, reinforcing other positions is not ruled out as long as there are economically feasible options available on the market.

Amidst this, PSG duo Sarabia and Soler are said to be two players whose profiles are appreciated by Atletico Madrid.

Soler joined the Ligue 1 giants only this past summer from Valencia but has found it hard to make an impact in France thus far leading to speculations over his future just six months into his stint at Parc des Princes.

Atletico Madrid had shown an interest in securing Soler’s services before he left for PSG in the summer. And they are again keeping tabs on the Spanish international in case an opportunity arises.

As for Sarabia, he too has found it hard to make inroads into the PSG setup especially given that Christophe Galtier has top options like Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to form the frontline.

Indeed, the 30-year-old has just started three Ligue 1 matches this term and an exit in January is not off the table, with Atletico Madrid said to be admirers of the former Sevilla ace.

However, any move from the Rojiblancos will only take place once they have been successful in offloading Felix, who is courting interest from the Premier League.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
