Real Madrid ‘eye move for Everton ace’


Real Madrid could make a move for Everton forward Romelu Lukaku this summer as the look to bolster their attacking options, according to reports.

British tabloid The Sun said the 10-time Champions League winners could offer up to 60 million euros for the striker, who has netted 25 goals for his side in all competition this season.

Lukaku, who previously played for Chelsea, has made no secret of his desire to play Champions League football, and the 22-year-old Belgium international has been linked with a number of top clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United.

Real are expected to go on a summer spending spree when the transfer window opens as they plan to improve their squad to make it more competitive next season. The club is also anticipating a two-window transfer ban for breaching rules over the signing of overseas players under the age of 18. They are allowed to sign players while an appeal is heard.

While the BBC trio of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo are the first choice, it is felt by both boss Zinedine Zidane and the club’s directors that more competition is needed up front, with Jese Rodriguez being the only real cover at the moment.
