Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing the Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero.
The 25-year-old Argentine international has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Premier League and his performances have attracted the attention of the Spanish club.
A report from Fichajes claims that Real Madrid are looking for a high-calibre option to improve their defensive unit and they have their ‘sights set’ on the World Cup winner as a potential option.
It remains to be seen whether the two clubs can agree on a fee. The report states that Romero has a leadership role at Tottenham and it might not be easy to lure him away from the club. In addition to that, Daniel Levy is likely to demand a premium for his services.
That said, Romero could be tempted to join the Spanish club if there is a concrete proposal on the table. Real Madrid are the biggest club in the world and the opportunity to play for them can be hard to turn down for any player.
A move to Real Madrid would be a major step up in his career and he would get to challenge for major trophies every season.
The report from Fichajes adds that the Argentine ‘fits perfectly’ into the profile of the player the Spanish club are hoping to sign. There is no doubt that he would help them improve defensively.
The 25-year-old is likely to improve further with experience and guidance. He is entering his peak years, and he could sort out Real Madrid’s defensive unit for the foreseeable future.
