UNIBEN CRITIC SPORT UPDATE - TRANSFER RUMOURS : Lewandowski to replace Ronaldo at Madrid, Arsenal scouting 'the Dutch Vieira etc

• LEWANDOWSKI TO REPLACE RONALDO AT MADRID

The Portugal international claimed his team-mates were not playing at the necessary level this season, with that outburst only hastening his exit from Santiago Bernabeu

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave Real Madrid this summer after publicly hitting out at his team-mates, according to El Confidencial.

The Portugal international claimed not enough of the Blancos squad were playing at the necessary level following their defeat to Atletico Madrid on Saturday, with his claims having hit the dressing room hard.

And his outburst will now only hasten his departure from Santiago Bernabeu, with the hierarchy at the club already eyeing replacements.

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is top of the list to be bought in the summer, with president Florentino Perez keen to make the deal happen.


• ARSENAL SCOUTING THE DUTCH VIEIRA'

The Gunners will scout the 19-year-old Netherlands international until the end of the season but face competition for his services from Juventus, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal are eyeing a move for Ajax starlet Riechedly Bazoer who could cost the Gunners £15 million, according to theSunday People.

Arsene Wenger has already scouted the teenager but now wants the Netherlands international watched in every match until the end of the season.

Bazoer is contracted to Ajax until 2020, meaning Arsenal will have to shell out £15m for his services but face competition from Juventus, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund.


• MANCHESTER UNITED SET SIGHTS ON CHAMPIONSHIP STAR

The 21-year-old Scotland international has already been observed by scouts from Old Trafford, but the club may have to fight off the likes of Arsenal and Spurs to get their man

Hull City defender Andrew Robertson has emerged as a transfer target for Manchester United, according to The Star.

The Scotland international was watched by United scouts earlier in February during a clash with Brighton, and he is thought of as an excellent alternative at left-back as Luke Shaw continues his rehabilitation from injury.

United may have to fight off strong attention to land their man, however, as Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham are also reportedly interested in the 21-year-old.

• CHELSEA CONSIDER MOVE FOR CRYSTAL PALACE'S SCOTT DANN

The 29-year-old defender, who is valued at £20m, is seen as an alternative to Juventus duo Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini
Chelsea are considering a move for Crystal Palace centre-back Scott Dann, according toThe Mail on Sunday.

The report claims that Chelsea are keen to improve their options in central defence but with John Stones looking like he will be Manchester City's first signing, the Premier League champions are exploring other options.

Juventus duo Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are also on Chelsea's shortlist but they are both difficult targets due to their ages and contract situations.

Palace value Dann at £20 million but Chelsea would refuse to pay such a high fee for the 29-year-old.


• BUSQUETS DEMANDS NEW BARCELONA CONTRACT

The Spain international midfielder has been handed a promise that he will become the club's third best paid player but he remains unwilling to wait until July for his new deal

Barcelona are yet to hand Sergio Busquets the improved contract which he is demaning despite significant interest from European rivals Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, according toMarca.

The 27-year-old anchorman has reportedly been promised by chairman Josep Maria Bartomeu that he will become the club's third-best paid player when he is offered a new deal in July, however, Busquets is unprepared to wait that long.

Barca are presently unable to offer theMasia graduade enhanced terms due to their self-imposed wage budget stipulations, forcing Busquets to request the club provide him with firm details of his future wage packet.

He remains interested in extending his career with the Catalan club but the defensive playmaker may be tempted to reconnect with Manchester City-bound manager Pep Guardiola, who is another keen admirer of his talents.


• MANCHESTER UNITED LINE UP MIRANDA APPROACH

The Italians' difficult financial situation could open the way for a move for the centre-back, but the Red Devils may have to fight Bayern Munich for the deal
Manchester United are looking to bolster their defence with Inter's Brazilian stalwart Miranda, according to Calcio Mercato.

The financial situation at San Siro is far from perfect, with owner Erick Thohir rumoured to be ready to withdraw his backing.

And the chance to balance the books by selling the centre-back to Old Trafford would be tempting.

United, however, may have a battle on their hands, as Bayern Munich have also been linked with Miranda in the summer.
