Real Madrid’s interest in strengthening their defense following Nacho’s departure is well-known. While Leny Yoro remains their top target, reports from Mundo Deportivo indicate that Riccardo Calafiori has also caught their eye. The Italian defender has garnered attention from several European clubs, particularly after his impressive performances at Euro 2024.

Calafiori’s standout moment came in the match against Croatia, where he assisted Mattia Zaccagni’s equalizing goal in the final moments of injury time. This goal secured Italy’s advancement to the next stage of the tournament, ending Luka Modric’s Croatian team’s hopes of progressing as one of the top third-placed teams.

Currently playing for Bologna, Calafiori has attracted interest from top clubs, including Juventus, now managed by Thiago Motta, his former coach at Bologna. At just 22 years old, Calafiori has established himself as a key player under Luciano Spalletti. He rose through Roma’s youth system and has also played for Genoa and Basel, with Basel holding 40% of his federative rights.

Bologna is finding it increasingly challenging to retain Calafiori. Initially, the club planned to keep the talented defender, but his rising stock and the growing interest from bigger clubs have made this unlikely. Consequently, Bologna is preparing for substantial offers for Calafiori.

While the Italian media highlights Real Madrid’s interest in Calafiori, the club’s primary target remains Leny Yoro. The young talent from Lille prefers Real Madrid’s offer over those from PSG and Manchester United. Now, the final step is for Real Madrid and Lille to negotiate the terms of the transfer.
