Real Madrid are one of the most in-form teams in all of Europe right now despite their clear issues with squad depth and injuries. The club deserve a lot of credit for that but at the same time, it is not ideal. We saw them make a brilliant start last season as well only to fade away in the second half of the campaign. Let’s see if they can maintain the pace this time around.
One would hope that Real Madrid end up strengthening their squad over upcoming transfer windows. There are several positions where they are light on options.
The club need to find a long-term replacement for Dani Carvajal sooner or later. And it appears that one of Liverpool’s best players is in their sights. As reported by Fichajes, Real Madrid would be willing to put an offer of more than €80 million on the table for Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Trent’s current deal with Liverpool is believed to run out in the summer of 2025. And he is yet to sign an extension with his boyhood club.
Real Madrid ready to offer €80 million-plus for Liverpool player
Over the years, Trent has received quite a bit of criticism for the defensive side of his game. Yet, he has remained a key player of Liverpool, who continue to be one of the best teams in the Premier League.
Going forward, Trent is one of the best and most effective full-backs we have ever seen. And while it feels like he has been around for a long time, the Liverpool player is still just 25. So, it is very possible that he has not reached his prime yet.
It remains to be seen if Real Madrid do make a move for Trent in the future. He is not the only right-back they have been linked with in recent times though.
