Real Madrid are allegedly interested in signing Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal in La Liga at the end of the season. According to Defensa Central, Real Madrid intend to strengthen their attack this summer. The reigning La Liga winners has shown interest in the 23-year-old Villarreal winger.
Chukwueze is keen to join Real Madrid
However, the transfer will only take place if Villarreal are willing to part ways with the player for a reasonable price. Chukwueze’s contract includes a €80 million release clause, which Real Madrid will not trigger. The asking price will have to be considerably reduced. The 23-year-old winger will reach the last year of his contract with Villarreal this summer, and if he does not sign an extension, he will be a free agent next year. Thus Villarreal should cash in on the player at the end of the season.
According to reports, the winger has already told Villarreal of his intention to join Real Madrid. Chukwueze has been one of La Liga’s skilled wingers this season, contributing to 24 goals across all competitions. He would bring a fresh dimension to Real Madrid’s offence next season.
In addition Carlo Ancelotti requires a right-sided attack specialist, and Chukwueze would be a great addition. He will speed up the offensive play, provide flare, and score goals. With his arrival, players like Federico Valverde will be able to play in their natural position. This season, the Uruguayan international has frequently been forced to play as a right-winger.
Above all, Los Blancos need to improve their attacking substitutes with players like Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard facing uncertain futures. Chukwueze has established himself in Spain and might make a swift impact at Real Madrid. Villarreal will try to collect as much revenue as possible for the 23-year-old winger. However, whether the two La Liga clubs can reach an agreement soon remains to be seen. Chukwueze certainly has the upper hand in his contract situation. Therefore Villarreal will be under pressure to give in to his demands if he decided to force an exit.
