Real Madrid has set sight on a Manchester City defender as the La Liga champions aim for some succession plans at Santiago Bernabeu.
Los Blancos is lining up for a move for Manchester City right-back Joao Cancelo in the summer of 2023 as per the report in SPORT.
The Portuguese defender joined Manchester City from Juventus last two seasons and was deployed to the left-back by manager Pep Guardiola and he has been impressive since he was drafted out of position.
Real Madrid is a huge fan of the defender and the Bernabeu chiefs are knee on signing him next season when the transfer window opens.
Real Madrid has one of the best left back in the World in Dani Carvajal as their main man at the right back the Spain international has had some fitness issues over the past seasons but whenever he is fit to play he delivers, while Lucas Vazquez has done well as an understudy, he is not a natural in the position.
Real Madrid also had Vinicius Tobias who is lacking the experience to play at the top level at the moment, signing a well-established player like Cancelo would be a big move from Real Madrid, as he would provide stiff competition to Carvajal and also improve the quality of the squad as a whole.
Real Madrid would have to part away with a huge sum of cash to sign the Manchester City defender whose market value is around €60 million, penned a new deal with the Premier League champions in February earlier this year that will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2027.
Guardiola would not let the Portuguese defender slip off without a fight and Real Madrid should be aware of this before making the move for the former Benfica star.
