It’s no secret that Real Madrid plan to actively hunt for a right-back once the season ends and one name that has already done multiple rounds is Jeremie Frimpong of Bayer Leverkusen.

If reports are to be believed, the team from the Spanish capital are quite impressed with his performances this season where he has an involvement of 12 goals (5G, 7A).

Adding to Real Madrid’s interest, transfer market specialist Fabrizio Romano has affirmed that the 22-year-old has a release clause in his contract that can only be activated in the summer of 2024.

According to the reporter, the value in his clause is set at €40 million, although any suitor willing to acquire him will have to settle on favourable payment terms.

Frimpong would love to play with Vinicius

Not too long ago, Frimpong expressed his willingness to play with Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr. In an interview, the young full-back was asked if he would love to play alongside the Brazilian, he said, 

“Yes, of course, I would love to. He is a great player. Who knows? Maybe one day,” he stated.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, securing Frimpong’s services might be a little challenging given the keen interest from Premier League powerhouses Chelsea and Liverpool.

Story is more complicated

This entire story is further complicated by the fact that Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, is reluctant to pay more than €35 million for the youngster.

This situation puts Real Madrid way below the pecking order, especially considering the financial prowess of Chelsea and Liverpool, who are more inclined to make substantial investments in the right-back position.

For now, there is absolutely no rush within the Real Madrid technical staff despite the fact that Dani Carvajal, regardless of his current form, is prone to injuries, and even his replacement, Lucas Vasquez is in his thirties.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
