Real Madrid table offer to sign Lovro Majer

La Liga champions Real Madrid have reportedly offered €60 million to sign Lovro Majer from Ligue 1 club Stade Rennais.

According to a report by French outlet Media Foot, Lovro Majer has become a top target for Real Madrid. And the reigning La Liga champions have tabled a bid worth €60 million to sign the Croatian midfielder from Ligue 1 club Stade Rennais.

Lovro Majer first made his mark in professional football at Dinamo Zagreb before earning a move to France last year. The 24-year-old joined Ligue 1 mainstay Stade Rennais and has gone from strength to strength in the last 18 months. At the same time, he has also established a foothold in his national team.

The Croatian international recently featured for Croatia at the 2022 FIFA World Cup as the Vatreni clinched the third spot. Meanwhile, Majer has turned out nearly 100 times for Rennes, chipping in with 19 goals and 25 assists. And the player’s progress in Ligue 1 has captured the attention of several high-profile clubs, including Real Madrid.

Real Madrid will delve into the market for at least one midfield reinforcement in the summer transfer window. While Los Blancos will initially look to replace Dani Ceballos, they will seek a player who can fill the void that Luka Modric and Toni Kroos will leave in the coming years. The two ageing midfielders are in the twilight of their careers, forcing Real Madrid to lay down a succession plan.

Several midfielders have thus emerged on Real Madrid’s radar, with Jude Bellingham a top target. But Majer is also an option worth considering for Los Blancos. The 24-year-old has drawn comparisons with a young Luka Modric in the last few years. And he might be attracted by the idea of replacing his compatriot at Real Madrid.

The reigning La Liga champions have now submitted an offer worth €60 million for the Croat. But the report does not mention whether the bid will be enough to convince Rennes to sell Majer. In addition, Real Madrid will have to fend off Atletico Madrid to sign the player from the Ligue 1 club.

€60 million is an attractive sum for a player who has not reached the peak of his powers. The fee should also help Rennes balance the books and reach a stable financial condition. And it will be interesting to see if the offer is enough for Real Madrid to sign Majer next year.
