    River deny agreeing Real Madrid move for wonderkid Palacios

    River Plate have denied reports that they have agreed the sale of Exequiel Palacios to Real Madrid, while admitting talks are ongoing with the Spanish giants.  Palacios, 20, has won rave reviews in Argentina for his performances with River.  The midfielder has been a key part of the team which has battled through to a Copa Libertadores final date with Boca, currently poised at 2-2 after Sunday's first leg in the Bombonera.  Marca had claimed that Madrid were set to announce the signing of Palacios following the return match on November 24, with the two clubs said to have a agreed a fee worth around €20 million (£17.7m/$22.8m).  But according to River president Rodolfo D'Onofrio, no such deal has yet been agreed.  "He has not been sold, but there is an interest from Real Madrid in Palacios," D'Onofrio explained to America TV.  "The Real Madrid sporting director spoke to [River Plate sporting director Enzo] Francescoli regarding their interest on the player, and we will speak further along. But he hasn't been sold." Palacios is the latest young star to roll out of the productive River academy, which in recent years has produced stars like Manuel Lanzini, Erik Lamela, Roberto Pereyra and Sebastian Driussi.  He made his debut with the Millonarios in November 2015, aged just 17, and has gone on to make 41 appearances so far, scoring seven goals.  His potential has also been recognised in the Argentine set-up, with interim coach Lionel Scaloni calling him up to the senior side following the Albiceleste's World Cup failure.  Palacios will not take part in November's friendly double-header against Mexico, however, as River and Boca's players have been excused from international duty in order to focus on the blockbuster Copa Superclasico final.

    Barcelona claim no Liverpool offer for Dembele as they stand by troubled winger

    Barcelona have sought to quash talk of Ousmane Dembele moving to Liverpool, with the Liga giants having no offers on the table. The Blaugrana moved to land the 21-year-old winger in the summer of 2017, with €105 million (£93m/$120m) of the record-breaking fee received for Neymar invested in the exciting France international. Dembele struggled to justify that fee amid form and fitness during his debut campaign, but did become a World Cup winner over the summer and has netted six times in 15 appearances this season. He is, however, reported to have tested Barcelona’s patience with breaches of club discipline, leading to him being dropped from Ernesto Valverde’s squad for a clash with Real Betis. A move elsewhere has been mooted amid the criticism, with Anfield considered to be one possible landing spot after Goal revealed that a January switch will be considered, but those at Camp Nou insist no transfer talks have been held. General manager Pep Segura told Cadena Ser: “If you have information from the English press, ask the English press. If you have information about Liverpool, ask Liverpool.  “As of today we have nothing for Dembele and we have no desire to change the structure of the template. “It is true that I had a meeting with Dembele's agents. But I had three meetings with three other representatives. My job is to meet with representatives, they are common things.” Barcelona are prepared to stand by Dembele and help him to fully adjust to the demands being placed on him under the brightest of spotlight. Segura added of the former Rennes and Borussia Dortmund winger: “There is no problem with Dembele.  “It is a normal situation for a young player who has a lot of talent and has reached a very big club like Barca, with great players and teammates. He has never had this before and this generates a process of adaptation that has to happen.  “He is very young and has never had to make the effort to adapt to this way of playing and we recognise that it is costing him. He also recognises it.  “What we will do is work so that this adaptation is possible.”

    Neymar not a target for Barcelona but door kept open for Camp Nou return

    Neymar is not a transfer option “on the table at the moment” for Barcelona, claims general manager Pep Segura, but a return to Camp Nou is not being ruled out. The Brazil international made 186 appearances for the Blaugrana, netting 105 goals, prior to making a record-breaking move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2017. A second spell in La Liga has been mooted since he departed Catalunya, with Real Madrid being heavily linked with a player who once graced the books of their fiercest rivals. Talk of a potential retracing of his steps to Barcelona has also been discussed, but that is not an option set to be explored any time soon. Segura told Cadena Ser of the Neymar rumours: “Neymar is a player who is not on the table at the moment. “I have already said that no young player that leaves for money will return. We stand by that. But the circumstances with Neymar are totally different. “We always must evaluate the circumstances of the market and assess what the best moves for us will be in relation to those.” Neymar has enjoyed a productive spell in France, finding the target 41 times in 46 outings while helping PSG to a domestic treble in his debut campaign. He is not the only former Barca star to be impressing elsewhere, though, or the only one to be sparking speculation regarding a possible return. Thiago Alcantara is a product of the famed La Masia academy system but headed to Bayern Munich in 2013 amid fierce competition for first-team places. The 27-year-old Spain international has emerged as another mooted target for Barca, and Segura will not be shutting that transfer door either. He added: “Thiago Alcantara? He left us as a professional footballer, so he enters the same parameters as Neymar and he could also return if that is what is requested.” Barca have been busy in recent windows acquiring attacking talent, such as Malcom, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho, but further moves could be made to land proven performers if the opportunity presents itself.

    Barcelona's main objective is Champions League glory, says Alena

    Barcelona's primary objective is to win the Champions League this season, according to Carles Alena. The Blaugrana are out for revenge after bowing out of last season's tournament in dramatic fashion against Roma. Barca defeated Roma 4-1 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie, only to crash out on away goals following a 3-0 reverse in the second leg in the Italian capital. It proved to be one of the greatest comebacks in recent history but also a source of embarrassment for Barca, who already had the Liga title all-but wrapped up at the time. However, Alena - a product of the club's youth system - insists Ernesto Valverde's side are aiming to bounce back in style by getting their hands on the trophy this campaign. "Yes, it is clear that the Champions League is a thorn that is stuck in our side," said Alena, as quoted by Sport. "Last year, because of the way they [Roma] eliminated us... it was a little unfair because your awful game comes the day you least expect it. "And it was a good year to have been able to win it. And, because of the way they eliminated us, this year it is like a main objective. "People are excited about the Champions League and we, too, have not won it for a few years, so it's a main objective." Valverde's men have started this season's Champions League in fine fashion as a result, winning three and drawing one of their opening four games in Group B. Barca, who won the league and cup double in 2017/18, are also top of La Liga and Alena insists his side cannot switch off domestically in their attempts to win another European crown. He added: "You cannot forget La Liga because every year that we've won the Champions League, we've also won that. "You cannot let go of it because it is the most important and the most regular competition, there is also the Copa del Rey, but the Champions League is the main objective of the dressing room.” Barca return to action against fellow Liga title contenders Atletico Madrid on November 24 before they travel to face PSV in the Champions League four days later. The Camp Nou outfit were stunned by Real Betis in their last outing before the international break, losing 4-3 in La Liga on home soil.
