Real Madrid has been very quiet in the current transfer window after winning the Champions League last season. However, manager Zinedine Zidane is keen to bolster his defensive midfield as he looks for an alternative to Brazilian Casmeiro.
Paul Pogba was in club’s interest before the Frenchman moved close to a deal with Manchester United for a world record transfer fee of around £100m. With Pogba, all but a Manchester United player, Real Madrid are looking for a viable option in the midfield going into the new season.
According to Sport, Los Blancos are planning to make a £34m bid in order to tempt Blues to sell their midfielder. Nemanja Matic situation at Stamford Bridge has been unconvincing since the signing of N’Golo Kante who is expected to take his place in starting lineup.
The Serbian international still has three years on his contract with the Blues and with a relatively slow paced La Liga, the central midfielder could very well excel in Spain.
The 27-year old is unsure of his future at the club. When asked about his future, said: “We will see. I have a contract with Chelsea for three more years but in football everything is possible.”
