In the last few seasons, Real Madrid are trying to sign a left back. Marcelo is a key player in the squad but the Brazilian is getting older and he has no replacement in the squad. This year, Fabio coentrao came back after a season on loan at Mónaco, but the Portuguese is failing to put Marcelo in some competition for the spot in the left wing.
Zidane has also tried to change Carvajal and Danilo, so they play in the left back. However, Nacho has been the only footballer able to play with good level as a replacement for Marcelo. The Brazilian needs to have some rest because he gets injured in every season due to the busy calendar.
For this reason, Real Madrid always look at the market but they’ve failed to sign a left back with guarantees. One of the favourites has always been Ricardo Rodríguez. The Swiss player is currently wearing the Wolfsburg t-shirt and he could be a target in the summer for Real Madrid.
Wolfsburg has been very disappointing this season and they are currently in the 13th position of the Bundesliga. Last season they were almost able to knock out Real Madrid from the Champions League but now they are far from being competitive. Julian Draxler, the other star, has also packed his stuff and he’s now playing with PSG.
Real Madrid will have competitors to sign Ricardo Rodríguez. According to The Sun, Arsenal and Chelsea have tried to bring the player to the United Kingdon, however Ricardo Rodríguez has turned down both offers. According to the British newspaper, the left back is waiting for Inter Milán, who could meet the £19M release clause. PSG would be also in the run for Ricardo Rodríguez.
Ricardo Rodríguez is only 24 years old and he is one of the best players in the Swiss national team. This season he has played 15 games in Bundesliga with Wolfsburg scoring two goals, against Freiburg and Augsburg.
