Real Madrid preparing to hijack move for Manchester United transfer target

According to reports, Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United target Benoit Badiashile.

The AS Monaco centre-back is considered to be among the brightest prospects in Europe, with Real Madrid keeping tabs on the Frenchman.

According to Spanish outlet AS, the La Liga Champions will not be able to spend heavily this summer due to the current renovation of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

Therefore, should the Red Devils make a £27 million offer to the Ligue 1 side for Badiashile in this transfer window, they are likely to secure the 19-year-old’s signature ahead of Madrid.
