Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City right-back Yan Couto as a long-term replacement for Dani Carvajal.
Carvajal, 32, has been a key player for Real Madrid for many years, but he has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons. As a result, the club are looking to the future and believe Couto is the ideal candidate to take over at right-back.
The 21-year-old Brazilian has impressed on loan at Girona this season, making 20 appearances in La Liga and contributing two goals and three assists. He is a talented attacking full-back who is comfortable on the ball and has good delivery.
Couto is under contract at Manchester City until 2025, but Real Madrid are confident that they can negotiate a deal with the Premier League champions. The player himself is said to be keen on a move to the Bernabéu.
If Real Madrid are able to sign Couto, it would be a major coup for the club. He is one of the most promising young full-backs in the world and has the potential to be a star at the Bernabéu.
