According to MARCA, Samuel Chukwueze’s performance on Saturday impressed Real Madrid. Thus, leading to immediate communication between Florentino Perez and the Villarreal president.
Reports suggest that Real Madrid is showing interest in Samuel Chukwueze. They were impressed by his performance on Saturday. The club is reportedly considering a move for the Villarreal winger in the upcoming summer transfer window. Chukwueze’s contract with Villarreal runs until June 2024, which gives him a good bargaining position for negotiations.
According to sources, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is willing to pay a fee of €50 million to sign Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal this summer. Chukwueze’s current contract with the Yellow Submarines expires in June 2024. This puts him in a strong position for negotiating a transfer. The 23-year-old was man of the match in Villarreal’s 3-2 win over Real Madrid on Saturday. He played on the right wing and caused problems for Nacho Fernandez throughout the game.
Real Madrid impressed with Chukwueze’s performances so far
Chukwueze was instrumental in all three goals of Villarreal during their victory against Real Madrid on Saturday. He scored two goals and provided an assist. His second goal turned out to be the winning goal. That was a work of art as he curled the ball past Real Madrid’s goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, from outside the box.
Those are impressive statistics for a winger. It is no surprise that he caught the attention of Real Madrid and other top clubs. Chukwueze has been a consistent performer for Villarreal in recent seasons and has showcased his ability to impact games with his pace, dribbling skills, and goal-scoring ability. It will be interesting to see how he develops in the future and if he makes a move to one of Europe’s elite clubs.
Real Madrid faced issues on the right-wing this season. As none of their regular players such as Marco Asensio, Federico Valverde, or Rodrygo Goes are natural wingers, and have struggled to provide a consistent impact from that position. As a result, the club is reportedly looking for reinforcements in that area, with Chukwueze being one of the primary targets.
Adding Chukwueze to their ranks on the right wing would undoubtedly bolster Real Madrid’s attacking options and provide a much-needed balance to their attack. However, it remains to be seen if Villarreal would be willing to part ways with their star player, and at what price. Nonetheless, Real Madrid have the financial resources to make a move happen. Especially with the potential of missing out on their other transfer targets such as Jude Bellingham.
