RB Leipzig midfielder Dani Olmo ends his ongoing deal in 2024 and the 25-year-old seems to be not interested in extending his stay with the German team.

This makes the Spanish international a compelling option for several suitors to consider as Leipzig will be forced to sell him at a lower price. 

This is where Real Madrid chip in. As reported by Aritz Gabilondo while writing for Diario AS, the Los Blancos are one of the few top teams who are interested in his acquisition.

Now, Leipzig’s stance is pretty clear regarding Olmo; they do not want to part ways with the midfielder. However, towards the end of the season, they might be forced to listen to offers or they will be at risk of losing him for free in 2024.

So far the team from German Bundesliga has not determined a price tag but Gabilondo says that if he is to move this summer, anywhere between €30 million and €40 million will do the trick for the suitor.

As far as Madrid are concerned, they are considering him as a reasonable alternative if a certain Marco Asensio ends up leaving. Although the 27-year-old is expected to renew with the team, there is still no official word on it at the moment.

Furthermore, given his form, he is likely to overtake players like Eden Hazard in the pecking order and he would settle really well alongside the likes of Rodrygo in the team.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are said to be in the race too, although their approach is a little bit different. Unlike Madrid and Bayern, they want the player to wait until 2024 so that they can acquire him for free.

Given the situation at hand, everything is aligning perfectly well for the 25-year-old. He is at the peak of his career, the price is pretty much affordable and he is certainly ready to take the leap in his career.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
