BREAKING NEWS: Coming live from Fabrizio Romano, 🚨 “Real Madrid coach sets sights on €90 million-rated Arsenal defender” 😱🔥😳 After enduring the loss of two defenders for a significant portion of the season, Carlo Ancelotti and his group are now hoping to add a new player to that position by June. The need for a new center-back🛡️ is even higher now that Nacho Fernandez is probably leaving Real Madrid🚶🛫.


During the 2023-24 season, Real Madrid recognized their central defense was insufficiently deep, struggling without two key defenders for much of the time. This highlighted their need for reinforcements, leading manager Carlo Ancelotti and his staff to prioritize signing a new center-back by June.

The urgency increased with Nacho Fernandez likely leaving, further weakening Real Madrid’s defensive line. The club is considering various candidates, with Leny Yoro being a top prospect. However, Mundo Deportivo reports Ancelotti has a strong interest in Arsenal’s William Saliba.

Saliba, 23, is crucial to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal squad, making him a desirable target for Real Madrid. Despite Ancelotti’s interest, acquiring Saliba is challenging as he is contracted with Arsenal until 2027 and valued around €90 million. Arsenal is reluctant to sell and may extend his contract, complicating Real Madrid’s efforts.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid will benefit from Rafa Marin’s return next month. Currently on loan at Deportivo Alaves, the 21-year-old has impressed as a regular starter, contributing to seven clean sheets and averaging nearly ten defensive actions and 3.7 ball recoveries per game.

Marin’s future role with Real Madrid will depend on whether they secure a top-tier center-back this summer. Nonetheless, his current performance suggests he is ready to step up and fill the defensive gap.
