Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Tuesday, October 27.
Tuesday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:
Manchester United are reportedly still hopeful of signing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland when his release clause drops to £68m in 2022.
The Red Devils were heavily linked with a move for Haaland during the January transfer window earlier this year, having seen the prolific frontman net 28 times in just 22 games for Red Bull Salzburg.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had previously managed the youngster at Molde too, making the 20-time champions of England one of the favourites to sign him for just €20m (£18.2m).
However, Haaland instead joined Dortmund, where he has since continued his free-scoring form with 23 goals in his 26 games across all competitions so far.
The Athletic reports that United still retain an interest in the Norway international, but are resigned to waiting until 2022 when a £68m release clause becomes active in his contract.
The inclusion of that release clause is understood to have been one of the main reasons why a switch to Old Trafford collapsed, with United unwilling to agree to those terms whereas Dortmund were prepared to do so.
Man United have the option of extending Edinson Cavani's stay for a further 12 months to take them through to 2022, when they hope to make a move for Haaland.
United have also been credited with an ongoing interest in Haaland's Dortmund teammate Jadon Sancho and are lining up a £176m double deal for the duo in the coming windows.
Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has claimed that he is "too old" to ever return to Tottenham Hotspur.
The 35-year-old was linked with a second spell in North London during the summer transfer window at a time when Los Blancos were looking to reduce their wage bill.
While the Croatia international has remained at the Bernabeu, speculation persists regarding his future due to his contract expiring in the summer.
Although the veteran has indicated that he wishes to prolong his career, another spell at the Premier League outfit has been ruled out.
Speaking to FourFourTwo, Modric said: "I'm too old to go back to Tottenham. I still have a year left in Madrid and then we'll see what happens.
"I feel good and I want to continue playing football for a few more years. I am focused on Madrid and the things we can achieve this season.
"Afterwards I will sit down to talk to the management, and we will look for a suitable solution for everyone.
"I have forged a good relationship with all the people of the club and no matter what happens there will be no problem."
Modric starred for Spurs between 2008 and 2012 before earning a £33m switch to La Liga.
