Real Madrid will certainly conduct a squad audit as Carlo Ancelotti and Florentino Perez will sit down to assess their options ahead of the summer transfer window. With big players expected to come in, unfortunately, some big players will have to leave the football capital. If recent Liverpool transfer news is anything to go by, then they could capitalise on the movement of players from Madrid.

Real Madrid reject €120m bid for Liverpool transfer target

Previously, Liverpool have shown a keen interest in signing Rodrygo. In fact, they even tried to sign the Brazilian before he joined Real Madrid. It is expected that under the new management of Arne Slot, this is not due to change. If anything, Liverpool's efforts could be revamped.

According to a new report from Fichajes, Liverpool have faced an unfortunate block in their plea to sign Rodrygo. The report claims that Real Madrid have rejected an offer of €120m from Liverpool.

Rodrygo is a player who suits Liverpool's attacking tenacity. While he would have been perfect under Jurgen Klopp, it is believed to be the same under Arne Slot. However, journalist Eduardo Inda claims that Real Madrid rejected the bid because the bid loves the player.

In his own words (translated to English), Eduardo Inda said: "The bidding club is Liverpool and the player is a player very similar to their style. We are talking about a Real Madrid winger and it is Rodrygo. Real Madrid's refusal is emphatic because the board likes him a lot"

Indeed, to reject €120m is quite the stance to take. However, let's face it, Real Madrid are not a club in a difficult financial position. Unlike some of their La Liga competitors, they are a well-run club with their finances in order. Therefore, they are in a fortunate position to hold out for bigger fees for their star players.

There is no denying that Rodrygo's position is under threat next season. Endrick is joining the club but Kylian Mbappe is expected to do the same. Mbappe is one of the best players in the world, so if he does join, then Rodrygo's position is under threat.

Still, as a player who has proven himself at Real Madrid time and time again, he will view Mbappe's arrival as an excellent opportunity to excel his own development a level. After all, he has what it takes to start every week under Carlo Ancelotti.


Where do you think Rodrygo will play next season?
