Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Wednesday, December 2.
Wednesday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:
Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has criticised the club's current chief Florentino Perez for selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.
Ronaldo moved from Madrid to Turin in the summer of 2018 after winning his fifth Ballon d'Or and a personal fifth Champions League title and has continued to be successful in Italy, scoring 74 goals and recording a further 19 assists in just 96 games.
However, Los Blancos have not enjoyed the same level of success in Europe since Ronaldo's departure, and Calderon believes letting the Portuguese star leave was a poor decision.
"It was a big mistake by [Florentino Perez] to sell him for €110m (£99m) after nine years in the team," Calderon told Goal.
"It is a pity because he is showing in Italy that he is still one of the best in the world. That attitude and his natural conditions make him unbeatable. Without a doubt, he is an example for young people who aspire to succeed in the sport."
Eden Hazard, who joined Real Madrid in 2019 and was tipped to be Ronaldo's replacement, has struggled to make an impact since his big-money move from Chelsea, scoring just three goals for the club so far.
The Belgian has been hampered by injuries since his arrival, making just 28 appearances across all competitions.
Barcelona have reportedly identified Atletico Madrid defender Felipe as a potential replacement for Gerard Pique.
While the Catalan giants have already been looking for long-term alternatives to the 33-year-old, a significant injury has left Barcelona short of options in the middle of their backline.
Despite talk of widespread pay cuts at Camp Nou, Barcelona are likely to be restricted when it comes to making new signings in January.
However, according to AS, Barcelona have taken an interest in Felipe, who has found himself in and out of the Atletico XI this season.
With Diego Simeone's men currently challenging for silverware in two competitions, club officials are unlikely to give the green light to a sale.
Nevertheless, the 31-year-old only has 19 months remaining on his contract at Wanda Metropolitano.
