Real Madrid have been linked with a long list of players in recent times as it is quite clear that the club are in need of reinforcements in the summer. There is a lack of depth all across the pitch and Carlo Ancelotti has had to play people out of position on numerous occasions. While Los Blancos have still done well and produced results for the most part, it is not an ideal situation to be in.
One player whose name has been doing the rounds of the rumour mill in recent weeks is Dani Olmo. The RB Leipzig star’s contract runs out in the summer of 2024 and as a result, it is possible he could be on the move at the end of the campaign.
Real Madrid are a club believed to be keeping an eye on the situation of Olmo. But the Spaniard might have his sights set on joining their eternal rivals.
As reported by SPORT, according to reports from Germany, Olmo basically wants to return to Barcelona, but he is not reluctant to switch to England. Manchester United have been linked with the Spaniard as well.

It is worth pointing out that Olmo played in the youth ranks for Barcelona for several years even though he never made a senior appearance for the club. Thus, it is not hard to understand why a return to Camp Nou might interest him.
Olmo is not enjoying a great campaign this time around but neither are RB Leipzig. The Spaniard has had his injury problems as well. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 4 goals and provided 6 assists in 24 appearances this season.
Olmo’s versatility could be huge for a club like Real Madrid, who are lacking in depth. The Spaniard can play as an attacking midfielder and on both wings with equal ease.
