Recent reports in Spain suggested that Real Madrid have taken an interest in RB Leipzig and Spaini attacking midfielder Dani Olmo heading into the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old will be entering the final year of his contract at the Bundesliga club this summer and alerted by the possibility of signing him at a bargain fee, Real Madrid had made initial contacts with the player’s camp.

It was even suggested that Olmo would be open to a move to the Bernabeu despite his past allegiances with Barcelona.

And, now, according to Sky Sports Germany (h/t Mundo Deportivo), RB Leipzig will demand a sum of €30 million to sell Olmo this summer, if he does not agree to sign a new contract with the club.

RB Leipzig have been trying hard to renew Olmo’s contract, but their attempts have proven futile thus far as the player is keen on moving back to Spain in the summer.

But the German outfit will make another final offer to the versatile forward with an improved salary. However, in case of rejection, they will sell him for a sum of €30 million, which will come as music to the ears of Real Madrid.

However, the Merengues will have to stave off interest from the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona, Manchester City and Bayern Munich, all of whom are said to be keen on signing Olmo.

In fact, Barça had requested Olmo to reject the contract proposal from Leipzig, so that they can sign him for free next year. But his availability for a fee of €30 million could change their plans.

Furthermore, it has recently been reported that Olmo would like a return to Barcelona, despite the interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid.

So, it remains to be seen whether Los Blancos decide to make any moves to try and sign the 24-year-old Spanish 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.
