Real Madrid transfer news summary: Borussia Dortmund plan on loan for Los Blancos star, a club interested in the Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper, and more
Real Madrid have had a brilliant resurgence under Carlo Ancelotti this season. Los Blancos are favorites for the La Liga title, as they have also advanced to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund are considering a loan for a Real Madrid striker. Elsewhere, Los Blancos are interested in an Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper.
On that note, let’s take a look at some of Real Madrid’s top transfer stories from December 27, 2021.
Borussia Dortmund plan loan for Luka Jovic
Borussia Dortmund are considering a loan for Luka Jovic, excluded from Real Madrid, according to Fichajes.
Los Blancos are ready to let the player leave the Santiago Bernabeu. The Bundesliga are considering securing the Serbian’s services on a short-term contract.
Jovic joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2019 after a fantastic season with Eintracht Frankfurt. However, he failed to replicate that form at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Los Blancos lost patience and staged a Bundesliga loan return in January this year.
However, the 24-year-old was unable to regain his form even after arriving at his former hunting ground. Real Madrid were due to offload him this summer.
But Carlo Ancelotti decided to keep him at the club due to the lack of backup from Karim Benzema.
Jovic has scored one goal and scored two more this season for Los Blancos. Borussia Dortmund are ready to offer him an escape route from Real Madrid, albeit temporarily.
However, it is not clear if Los Blancos would consider such a move. Real Madrid aim to win both La Liga and the Champions League this season.
As such, Ancelotti might not be ready to cut his squad down midway through the season.
Real Madrid interested in Julen Agirrezabala
Real Madrid are interested in Julen Agirrezabala, according to The Hard Tackle via Defensa Central.
The Spaniard has drawn attention after making his debut in Athletic Bilbao’s first team this season. Los Blancos are among the clubs watching the 21-year-old with interest.
Real Madrid may be looking for a new goalkeeper next year. Andriy Lunin is unstable at the Santiago Bernabeu after struggling for first-team opportunities.
The Ukrainian is expected to leave next year. Los Blancos are considering investing in Agirrezabala as a replacement. The Spaniard could even be Thibaut Courtois’ eventual successor at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid prepare summer move for Florian Wirtz
Real Madrid are preparing to move for Florian Wirtz next summer, according to The Hard Tackle via Defensa Central.
Carlo Ancelotti is an admirer of the youngster from Bayer Leverkusen and has asked Los Blancos to make a transfer for the player at the end of this season.
The 18-year-old has been exceptional for Leverkusen this season, justifying Real Madrid’s interest. The German prodigy has scored eight times and has set up 11 more in 21 games so far.
