Once again, Real Madrid and Barcelona with fight for the signing of a player who has done a very good season in his first year as a profesional. The object of desire of both squads is a young French full back named Malang Sarr, who currently is playing for OGC Nice. The young talent of 18 years old is also Chelsea’s target after sending on loan Zouma to Stoke City this week.
With Pepe’s departure to the Turkish League, Real Madrid want to improve the defense with new players, despite Jesús Vallejo has returned after being on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt last season. According to Sky Sports, the good performance of the young French defense has caught the attention of several big teams. The huge problem is the high price of Sarr. He has a release clause of €40M and it looks like, Nice will not sell him for a lower price because is a team that currently has no financial problems who will play Champions League next season.
Malang Sarr is nowadays a key player for the team managed by Favre, because of his great conditions and his youth. Nice have managed to uncover several young talents as Jean Seri or Sarr, as well as recovering the best level of players in decline as Mario Balotelli. Sarr played last season 27 games in the regular season and four in the European League, showing that despite his youth he is a very good player, who can grow with the pass of the years.
After a summer where Real Madrid and Barcelona fought for the signing of Dani Ceballos, it looks like they will live a similar situation with Malang Sarr. Zinedine Zidane has a very good squad with two players in every position, but it seems that the French manager wants to complete even more the team. Do you think Real Madrid should sign another full back having Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Nacho and Jesús Vallejo in the squad?
