While Spain’s World Cup performance in Qatar was disappointing. The 20-year-old winger has been excellent this season with three goals and four assists in Real Madrid. Real Madrid are looking for a right-winger after missing out on Kylian Mbappe in the summer. And with Marco Asensio’s contract expiring at the end of the season for Real Madrid. The ideal candidate is the star from Pamplona.
President Florentino Perez allegedly envisions a front three consisting of Vinicius Junior, Karim Benzema, and Williams. And the club may make a move during the winter transfer window.
The report states
“Real Madrid is closely following his situation at Athletic Club and could even undertake his transfer in this upcoming winter market. Florentino is ready to make an offer for the striker this coming January,”
“Karim Benzema’s constant injuries force Concha Espina’s team to reinforce the offence, and the president dreams of an attack made up of Nico Williams on the right-handed lane and Vinícius on the left-handed.”
TIF Opinions Regarding Nico Williams for Real Madrid
Athletic Club would be reluctant to part with a key asset in January. Given that he reportedly has a €50 million (£43 million) release clause in his contract. However, his contract is to expire in 2024. They could be out to cash sooner if Real makes a competitive offer.
Williams occasionally showed his dribbling prowess and offensive potential during the World Cup, but his performances also demonstrated that he is still developing and might not be ready to move up to Real Madrid just yet. To date, he has played in just 57 senior matches.
