Danilo is receiving many offers this summer and he’s an unexpected protagonist of the transfer market. We all think the Brazilian player wanted to continue at Real Madrid, but his future is far from the Spanish capital at the moment and closer to the Premier League.
The deal with Chelsea seemed very close to be sealed but Manchester City have entered in the fight for the defender, according to the British newspaper The Times. The signing of Kyler Walker last week, another right back, didn’t avoid the interest for the Real Madrid player. Actually, the ‘citizens’ are able to offer up to €35M, the price Real Madrid would like to receive for the defender.
Juventus moved quickly in the market and they were the first club to be interested in the right back after Dani Alves’ departure. However, the ‘Old Lady’ didn’t offer money Real Madrid wanted, so the bid was rejected. Some days later, Chelsea entered in the auction because Antonio Conte wants to sign another right back to replace Victor Moses.
Now, both Premier League giants will fight for Danilo, who is training with the rest of the team in Los Angeles. At the moment, the Brazilian player is focused on the team, but he knows that his next destination could be outside Madrid. The defender understands that Daniel Carvajal is the owner of the right back, so he has to find another club to enjoy more minutes and play the next Russian World Cup.
The problem is that Real Madrid have set a very high price on Danilo. Los Blancos paid around €30M to Porto two seasons ago and they want this money back. The issue is that the Brazilian player didn’t enjoy many minutes these seasons and his performances were quite poor, so his value in the market dropped. The good news are that Premier League teams have a lot of money to offer, so they might find the buyer in the British islands this summer.
