As uncertainty hangs over the future of Sergio ramos, Real Madrid are already working to strengthen their defensive sector for next season. The Madrid club would be on the trail of a young central defender playing in Ligue 2.
Real Madrid: a Ligue 2 talent in the sights
Still engaged in the fight for the La Liga title, Real Madrid expect to experience a very eventful transfer window. The Madrid club could indeed lose one of its legends. While the coach Zinedine Zidane is not certain to continue on the merengue bench at the end of the season, a departure of Sergio Ramos is still relevant. At the end of the contract, the Madrid captain refused the extension offer made by his management, claiming a contract lasting two seasons.
With this umpteenth refusal, Sergio Ramos is getting closer to the exit. PSG would even be ready to welcome him this summer. But on the side of Real Madrid, we do not sit idly by. The Merengues are said to be on the verge of signing the defender from Bayern Munich, David Alaba, to strengthen their defense. However, Real Madrid are not expected to recruit only top players. The Madrilenians would also have views on a young talent playing in Ligue 2. According to the latest information from Don Balon, the Madrid giant is interested in Ismaël Doukouré from Valenciennes.
Who is Ismaël Doukouré, the target of Real Madrid?
Aged 17, Ismaël Doukouré is currently playing for Valenciennes FC. The young central defender is considered one of the most promising players in Valenciennes. He had a good season with 19 Ligue 2 matches on his scoreboard. Promised with a bright future, it could quickly be the subject of an offer. The source indicates that Real Madrid are said to be willing to put in € 3million for his transfer. As a reminder, Ismaël Doukouré is under contract until June 2023 with Valenciennes FC.
