Real Madrid plotting summer raid for Liverpool defender – report

According to the Daily Mail, Real Madrid are preparing a summer swoop for Andy Robertson. The Liverpool star has been identified as the ideal option in the club’s bid to reinforce the left-back option.

The Spanish giants are likely to sanction the sale of Ferland Mendy this summer, with the Frenchman being linked with a move to Arsenal. He has struggled with injuries and appears to have limited potential. A move away from the Santiago Bernabeu, therefore, is a real possibility.

In an attempt to replace Mendy, Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Alphonso Davies. But Bayern Munich have no intention to part ways with the Canadian international anytime soon, forcing the club to look elsewhere.

That is where Robertson comes into the fray. With 267 competitive appearances for Liverpool and a proven track record of winning both the Premier League and the Champions League, Robertson is one of the most established full-backs in Europe.

The Scottish international has racked up 63 assists during his time at Liverpool, which speaks highly of his ability to create chances. Real Madrid, therefore, are looking to secure his services ahead of the new season.

Liverpool will not be keen on losing their star player this coming summer, but Real Madrid can potentially woo the players with the prospect of playing in the Champions League. Liverpool, in contrast, could lose out to Man United in the race for the top four places in the Premier League.

The Reds, though, could hold out for a hefty figure for Robertson, who is likely to be valued in excess of the £40 million mark. So it will be interesting to see whether or not Real Madrid break the bank for the Scottish international this summer.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
