.Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing Nico Williams from Athletic Bilbao, but the move is complicated by the player’s contract situation.
According to Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda, the club have decided that Williams will play for Real Madrid in the future. However, the player’s contract with Athletic Bilbao does not expire until 2024, and he is unlikely to leave the club for free.
Inda claims that Real Madrid are willing to pay Williams’ €50 million release clause, but Defensa Central reports that the club are more likely to sign him as a free agent when his contract expires.
Williams has been a key player for Athletic Bilbao this season, scoring 10 goals in 34 appearances. He is considered to be one of the most promising young players in Spain, and his arrival at Real Madrid would be a major coup.
However, the move is far from straightforward, and it remains to be seen whether Real Madrid will be able to sign Williams in the summer.
