Kyle Walker in Real Madrid link

Real Madrid are considering a summer bid for Tottenham full-back Kyle Walker, Sunday People has revealed.

Los Blancos have been heavily linked with a summer swoop for Spurs star Gareth Bale, but it appears they could sign Kyle Walker instead.

Real Madrid officials have been looking at targets for the right-back position and they are convinced the England international has got what it takes to succeed at Camp Nou.

Los Merengues believe Walker would be a great long-term replacement for Alvaro Arbeloa, and are ready to test Tottenham’s resolve with a summer bid.

It is believed that the talented defender would cost around £15 million, which is well within Real’s price range.

Kyle Walker joined Tottenham from Sheffield United in the summer of 2009 and has quickly developed into one of the best right-backs in the Premiership.

He has made a total of 66 league appearances for Spurs, and scored 3 goals in the process.

    Camp nou?
    Wtf
    You mean santiago bernabeu……
    Why would real scout for barcalona

    ..

  2. Radek says:

    YES! I’m a big fan of Kyle and I’m sure he’d do great in Real, he fits there well. I knew sooner or later they were gonna think of buying him.

  3. Mourinho says:

    Yeah hess good but
    Wel, they got f.coentrao and marcelo
    Who are clearly better
    I have seen kyle play yesterday though
    Hes a strong fast defender.
    But is his speed and stamina good enough for la liga?

    Wel hes better then albeloa
    So if its to become a good second option
    Then i agree

  4. Radek says:

    Mourinho, you might be right, Coentrao and Marcelo might be better than him but don’t forget that both of them play as LEFT backs, Kyle’s a right back so he’d be a clear replacement for Arbeloa.

  5. Coach Lo says:

    Yeah he would be great. I really thought Real were going to get Maicon summer 2012 but owell. I know coentrao is leaving this summe becuase he hates it there. Kyle would kill La liga/Jordi Alba. He has like 30 pounds on him haha

  6. Mourinho says:

    Wel it al depends on one
    Thing
    Mourinho( aha the real one) leaving or staying
    If he stays theres a big chance of coentrao and ronaldo staying and also some players like bale or mabye kyle geting a chance in the team
    Mabye joao moutinho even as a extra option in holding mid.field
    But if the special one leaves
    Things migjt change big time at madrid
    And
    I doubt it wil be for the good of real

    But yeah ur right coentrao and marcelo are both left backs
    But they do play on both sides well
    ( if needed) , i would rather let
    Marcelo play on the right side and coentrao on the left
    But its true kyle could be a good option( and as i said better then the current right back!)
    Even though i rather see bale play at madrid
    Having him and di maria and ronaldo
    Play togeter would be an
    Overkill to the world teams
    XD

    ( callejon can leave, hes good but lacks something, he would be good to play at a club like arsenal or psg or mabye even atheltico madrid)
    Hmmm

    And have modric leave( i like the guy but hea to slow for spanish footbal, he needs slower more tactical games like at england or mabye another competition, only
    If he can addapt better to the counter game can he stay)

  7. Radek says:

    Well, I just partly agree with you.

    I agree on the Mourinho leaving part. That’s true, he’s too good to see him leaving the club, he’s done a lot to get them back on the right track. And still he ‘s able to do more, he’s The Only One as he claimed.

    Yeah, Modric seems to not get accustomed there and might leave the club. I heard some speculations that he might head back to Premier League.

    As for Kyle being better than Arbeloa. Only partly. Alvaro’s drawbacks are his physicality. He’s powerful (as well as Kyle) but isn’t that fast anymore and that gives Walker an advantage. And obviously he’s getting older. But don’t forget Arbeloa is an amazing tactician and this is the thing that makes Mou use him instead of any other defender. Though, IMO Kyle would quickly get to the first squad.

    Real Madrid as the club that earns more money than any other club can easily afford Bale and Kyle. I think they’ll go for it.

    I disagree on Callejon part. He’s good, he loves Real and I think he already proved he’s a valuable player that Real can use. He does well offensively and defensively.

    If Marcelo and Coentrao played well on both sides, they would be used both simultaneously but so far we haven’t had a chance to see them play on both sides of defense (or maybe they’ve played and I ain’t seen that). That must mean something and probably means they don’t play as good on the right side as on the left one. So they’re both kept strictly on the left back position.

  8. Mourinho says:

    Yh wel mabye
    But i just think there are better right backs for real
    Faster ,strong andyoung but who knows wat theyll do.
    I was hoping they would buy nani ,as fergie doesnt like him anymore, and have him be a attCking option.
    Or get some fresh talent for defense.
    Hnnn
    Mabye a good second goalie for if cassilias is out of the question

  9. Radek says:

    Of course there are defenders better than Arbeloa. One of them might be Kyle. If he’s not better now, he WILL be better later, he’s still young and a great prospect.

    I also expected Nani to come to Real but I bet Ferguson eventually paid him the money he requested and forgot about moving. Still I prefer Bale to him, though.

    For now they don’t need a new goalkeeper. Casillas can be on the very top for 2 maybe 3 seasons. And also there’s Diego Lopez who’s pretty good.

  10. Mourinho says:

    Yeah okay
    Diego lopez is doing kinda better then i expected he would be
    Ans man im seeing nani play atm against real
    And for somone who barely plays first team footbal
    His speed and skill is killing xD

    I also rather have bale playing at real
    But bale is younger
    So he can go to real wen hes older or
    Something xD
    I would love to see nani ans ronaldo play togeter
    Like they play for portugal
    Or give nani a more attacking mid. Role

    He would be dangerous
    !

    If they get that right conection like ronaldo an coentrao have
    Man they would become a heavy strike forxe for club and country

    But yh xD

    Idk
    Cassilias( diego lopez) on goa

    Ramos/pepe( varane) in centre

    Coentrao/ marcelo & kyle maiy for flanks( i would sel albeloa)
    And defintly a alonso- ozil-nani middfield
    With a di maria ronaldo bale attack( ronaldo in the more CF role)

    XD

    But yh that would be what i would love to
    See
    With calllejon, khedeira,mordic, kaka,
    Uhm higuian ,morata, benzema etc
    As extra option
