European champions might be fully focused on solving the burning managerial issue amidst the 5-1 El Clasico wildfire but Real Madrid also continue to work on finding the possible January reinforcements.
Real Madrid’s technical department is said to have identified the central midfield as a position in need of an upgrade – either in January or next summer.
Los Blancos bosses are reportedly unhappy with their current options and Marco Llorente in particular, which is why they are exploring other options.
Spanish daily news outlet Marca claims Real Madrid have set their sights on Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios.
Compared to Casemiro due to his tactical awarenss, Barrios is less of a physical player who has attracted plenty of attention with his steady rise with the Argentine heavyweights.
Boca Juniors have only extended his contract to 2021, while also increasing his release clause to €24 million which should not stand as too big of an obstacle for Real Madrid.
