A product of La Fabrica, Alex Jimenez turned out to be one of the many academy talents to depart Real Madrid in search of playtime.

With the competition in the Madrid first team always soaring, youngsters tend to hit the exit door, often on temporary loan spells or with buyback clauses attached to their deals.

Alex Jimenez’s case is no different. The 18-year-old full-back joined AC Milan on loan from Real Madrid last summer and recently made his debut with the Italian side.

In the Coppa Italia Round of 16 clash against Cagliari, he held his own and produced a solid exhibition.

Now, MARCA have come out to report the player’s price tag and if a reunion with Real Madrid is possible down the line.

AC Milan have a €5 million purchase option for Jiménez

Indeed, as per the information, AC Milan have a €5 million purchase option for Alex Jimenez but if it’s triggered, Real Madrid will have a buyback option.

For the time being, Milan’s situation is clear: they are fully satisfied with the player, both inside the team and among Stefano Pioli’s managerial staff.

Real Madrid, as usual, continues to observe their youth talents from afar and possess the opportunity to buy back the player.

The Merengues have reportedly maintained great confidence in Jimenez’s ability and will buy him back if his level remains consistently impressive.

Jimenez has made 15 appearances with Milan’s Primavera team (U19) this season, five of which have been in the UEFA Youth League. And his impressive debut is bound to earn him more opportunities.

Real Madrid views the 18-year-old as a potential option at right-back next season. If Lucas Vazquez, who is a target for Juventus, decides not to extend his contract, the department may be weaker the next season, paving the path for Jimenez’s return to the Spanish capital.

Barcelona find legal precedent to replay El Clasico after ‘ghost goal’ controversy

Barcelona’s recent defeat to Real Madrid in El Clasico appears to have caused calamity inside the Catalan camp.

The defeat has effectively ruled Barça out of the title race while further diminishing the chances of Xavi staying at Camp Nou.

Amid all this, Barcelona president Joan Laporta appears to be having a hard swallowing the result and has gone on a rampage against the use of VAR, which notably annulled a goal from Lamine Yamal after it was cleared from behind the line by Andriy Lunin.

A day after the result, Laporta even warned that Barcelona might seek legal measures to try and replay El Clasico if they find any evidence of wrongdoings. And that statement could now soon turn into reality.

Barcelona consider legal measures

According to Cadena SER, Barcelona are considering legal action under the guidance of none other than Laporta to force a replay.

Their inspiration? An incident earlier this year in the Belgian League, where a VAR error led to the permission for a replay of an Anderlecht vs Genk match, although the decision was later annulled by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

CAS is the apex body for all things related to sports. And although the entity was involved in annulling the replay between Genk and Anderlecht, Barcelona are hopeful they would intervene in this matter.

The Catalans are aware that local bodies such as RFEF and CTA might not cooperate with Barcelona, knowing the image and prestige of Spanish football could be at stake.

As such, Barça are hopeful of intervention from CAS. They want the apex court to look into the matter and stage a replay of the Clasico.

Barca’s threats of legal action, including potentially involving the CAS, seem like a desperate attempt to try and remain in the title race – the only avenue for silverware left for the Catalans this season.
