Real Madrid is arguably the biggest club in the world. Naturally, they are consistently linked with moves for some of the best players in world football and are mentioned as the dream club for many when discussing their futures. Could a €30 million Tottenham Hotspur signing end up at Santiago Bernabeu a few years later?
Players such as Kylian Mbappe are believed to have grown up supporting Real Madrid. However, he has not yet made the dream move. That could change next summer, with his current contract with PSG running down.
Radu Dragusin completed a €30 million transfer move to Tottenham Hotspur from Genoa just a few days back. Curiously, there is already talk of a move to Real Madrid in the future.
Dragusin had the option of joining Bayern Munich this winter as well. But he decided to choose Tottenham Hotspur instead. Let's see how things go for him in London. Ange Postecoglou is known for his fantastic eye for talent though, so one would expect the centre-back to be a success.

Florin Manea, Dragusin's agent, said on the Digi Sport Special show:
"We were close, Bayern is among the biggest clubs, but his dream is Real or Barcelona. If he was 23-24 years old and had more experience, maybe he would have decided to go to Bayern, but I also took into account the age, and the competition, I took into account many things."
Manea can see Dragusin playing at Real Madrid one day. The agent said:
"In three or four years I see him at Real Madrid!"
Of course, Tottenham Hotspur fans might not be delighted with the comments. They would not want players to be viewing the club as a potential stepping stone for a move elsewhere in the future.
This is not Dragusin's first experience of playing at a high-profile club though. He came through the ranks at Juventus but only made a handful of senior appearances for the Turin-based club, eventually signing for Genoa, which is where he enjoyed his breakout as one of Serie A's best defenders.
Still 21 years of age, Dragusin certainly made a bold decision choosing Tottenham Hotspur over Bayern Munich. Let's see how his time in London goes.
