According to Marca, the future of Roma goalkeeper Alisson could be decided sooner rather than later as Spanish giants Real Madrid are said to be confident of landing his signature. The Champions of Europe have already made a bid of €50 million which was turned down, and while the Italians value him at €70 million, both Liverpool and Real have considered that to be an unacceptable fee.
While €10 million more for either club wouldn’t be too much of a hassle, it’s likely the principle behind it that is preventing them from paying up. Zinedine Zidane wasn’t interested in bringing in a new goalkeeper when he was in charge at the Bernabeu, instead favouring Costa Rica star Keylor Navas. Now, however, the reality of a new goalkeeper being brought in feels that much closer.
The 25-year-old Alisson put himself on the map in a big way this season with a remarkable campaign, and Real remain confident that they can get this deal over the line.
