Real 'set sights' on Man City star


Real Madrid have reportedly set their sights on a Manchester City star in a bid to bolster their squad in the upcoming transfer window.

Carlo Ancelotti's Los Blancos have been relatively quiet in the transfer market in the past two seasons, with David Alaba and Eduardo Camavinga being the only incomings in that time.  

This has led to various reports suggesting that the LaLiga giants are in a financial position to allow them to spend big in the next window.

Real have been linked with a number of top players as a result, including Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, both of whom are rumoured to be on the move in the off-season. 

However, Mbappe is said to still be undecided about his future, while the pursuit of Borussia Dortmund's star striker is reportedly proving a tough task due to super-agent Mino Raiola's huge demands.  

According to Todo Fichajes, the Spanish club is ready to look elsewhere, with Kevin De Bruyne being shortlisted as a potential signing for their midfield.

It is claimed the Belgium playmaker is a fan of the European giants, while he also has friends at the Santiago Bernabeu in national teammates Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, who could convince the star to leave Pep Guardiola's side to join them in Madrid.

Real CEO Jose Angel Sanchez is also believed to have met with De Bruyne's agent weeks ago, although not much progress has been made thus far.

The Citizens are expected to command a fee of at least €100 million (R1.5 billion) for the midfielder.
