Real Madrid to sign Newcastle player, former Arsenal target to depart to France

Real Madrid are ready to loan out players to Newcastle United in exchange for Moussa Sissoko, according to the Guardian.

Los Blancos are keen on signing the France international, who is valued at £35 million by the Magpies, this summer. Real, who have turned attention to Sissoko after missing out on his compatriot Paul Pogba, are prepared to send youngsters Mariano Diaz and Marcos Llorente on season-long loans in the opposite direction.

The Magpies, currently managed by former Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez, have already signed Mo Diame, who could prove to be an able replacement for Sissoko for them in the Championship next season.

Meanwhile, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are set to sign Real Madrid striker Jese Rodriguez for a transfer fee believed to be around £21 million, according to L’Equipe.

The 23-year-old Spaniard, who scored five goals in 28 league appearances last season, has fallen down the pecking order at Real following the arrival of Alvaro Morata. Jese, who was also linked to Arsenal and Liverpool in the past, will provide competition for Edinson Cavani for a spot in the starting eleven next season.
