According to Sky Sports, Real Madrid is also interested in signing Liverpool trade target Serge Gnabry from Bayern Munich.
Los Blancos seek to cement their dominance for years to come with a good summer transfer window after their domestic and European victory in the recently finished 2021/22 campaign.
After failing to recruit Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, Real Madrid has decided to seek for a versatile goalscoring winger. The world’s most gifted and productive youth appeared to be on his way out, only for the reigning Ligue 1 winners to prolong his stay with the Parisians. The new contract for the 23-year-old is worth roughly £1 million per week, plus a £100 million signing bonus. Real was obliged to look elsewhere for reinforcements, with Gnabry being the most likely candidate.
Bayern Munich, the Bundesliga champions, have just stated that they are prepared to sell their star winger for £34 million (€40 million) this summer if he does not choose to extend his contract.
This piqued the interest of FA Cup winners Liverpool, who are looking for reinforcements in the final third following the departures of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
If Liverpool misses out on signing the German international to Real Madrid, it will be the second time in as many weeks that Ancelotti’s team has been defeated.
With Bayern Munich’s modest asking price for the German winger, the 2018/19 Bayern Munich player of the season appears increasingly likely to join Los Blancos as Real want to bolster an already strong and successful squad.
