Real Madrid tie an Arsenal target

Real Madrid tie an Arsenal target


Real Madrid can sign any footballer in the next transfer window when the FIFA sanction expires. Therefore, a lot of rumours have been triggered and the last one is the agreement between Real Madrid and André Silva.

According to the Daily Star, Los Blancos have an agreement with the Portuguese striker and the Spanish giants will pay €58M to Porto in the next summer. André Silva is Arsène Wenger favourite player but Los Blancos have been quicker in making contact with the footballer.

In the last few days, there were rumours around Paulo Dybala’s future. There were some information about an offer rejected by the player from Barcelona because the Argentinian would like to play at Santiago Bernabéu. Now, the British press say that the agreement is with the Portuguese striker André Silva.

André Silva shares the dressing room with Cristiano Ronaldo in the Portuguese national team. Actually, both were key players to win the Euro in the last summer in Paris. This season he has scored 10 goals in 16 appearances in the Portuguese league. André is only 21 years old and he has been always playing for Porto.

Arsenal were about to offer €23M for the Portuguese striker, but they cannot beat the bid made by Real Madrid, close to €60M. André Silva current contract with Porto expires in 2021
But he might want to find a new club, so he can grow as a player far from the Portuguese league.

Los Blancos have to think which signings they want to undertake in summer. In the attacking line, the BBC look untouchable. Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have extended their contract recently and it’s very unlikely that Los Blancos would like to sell Karim Benzema. Therefore, it could be Álvaro Morata the one who leaves the club, but the Spaniard just arrived last summer and he’s doing a good job. However, in Italy the newspapers say that Morata would like to go back to Torino, so there would be an option for a new striker. Perhaps André Silva?
