Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Real Madrid still targeting Rudiger

Everton manager Rafa Benitez said his side may not have money to spend in January, despite the club’s need for reinforcements.

I had a conversation with Marcel [Brands, Everton’s sporting director]said Benitez, and was explaining, not exactly, but more or less the idea. “I think we still have some time to consider what we need to do.

“When you go out there and sit down and have your plan ready, that could change depending on the injuries, depending on the players’ performance. I feel that in this case, when we’re talking about the owner who has spent £400m in the past years we can’t blame him for that.

“But, at the same time, it is unfortunate that we have not been able to spend the money this year due to the years of financial fair play. We have to be creative and think about how to manage the situation in the best possible way and be sure that we can be stronger in January )”.
