Los Blancos are interested in a Portuguese right back


Real Madrid are interested in a young right back defender who plays currently at Valencia. Joao Cancelo has progressed a lot in the last two years and many important European clubs are following the Portuguese evolution.

Joao Cancelo has started really good the present season and FC Barcelona are also very interested in his services, because one of their right backs may leave on the winter’s transfer market. Aleix Vidal has played few minutes in this season and Barça will try to sign Cancelo, but according to calciomercato.com, Real Madrid could enter in the bid to sigh Valencia’s player.

According to calciomercato.com, Real Madrid want to sign the Portuguese right back because they believe that this position is not well covered with Carvajal and Danilo. Cancelo is a great player and with his good performances of this season he has been placed as one of the revelations of La Liga Santander. Los Blancos tried to sign André Gomes last year but he finally chose Barcelona and Real Madrid don’t want to have the same situation with Cancelo. Barcelona are looking forward to signing Cancelo because they want a right back with similar characteristics as Dani Alves.

Cristiano Ronaldo has recommended this player to Real Madrid because the Portuguese star knows that he can grow even more as a football player. Cristiano has been with Cancelo in the Portugal national team and their relationship is excellent.

Real Madrid have two incredible right backs despite Danilo has not yet triumphed at Santiago Bernabéu. The Brazilian right back signed with Los Blancos two years ago for an amount of €30M from Porto. This is his second year at Madrid and he has only played 28 games in the regular season with Los Blancos. Danilo is a great player but he has not shown his quality because he doesn’t have the necessary continuity to reach the level shown with Porto.
