Real Madrid are ready to make an official offer for Schalke 04 youngster Leroy Sané, Spanish sports newspaper Marca has revealed.
Barcelona and Manchester City have recently shown an interest in signing the German forward, and that has apparently convinced Florentino Perez to make the first move.
Marca have not reported the amount Real will offer, but it is believed it will be near 39 million euros, since that is the buy-out clause on the 20-year-old’s contract.
The latest Real Madrid transfer rumours published by Spanish press also suggest that Boca Juniors midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur could arrive to Madrid next week.
Marca has claimed that the negotiations to sign the Argentinian are coming to an end and Los Merengues will finally pay around 10 million euros. The 18-year-old will reportedly sign a five-year contract with Real.
Meanwhile, AS, the other main Spanish sports newspaper, has revealed that Deportivo La Coruna have requested Lucas Vazquez’s loan for the rest of the season. The winger is not getting minutes of play since Zinedine Zidane arrived and could be willing to leave. However, Real want to keep him because they fear injuries will hurt them in the crucial stage of the season.
