Real Madrid might propose a part-exchange deal to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Serie A club Juventus, with David Alaba going the other way.
According to a report by Italian outlet Calciomercatoweb, Dusan Vlahovic remains the subject of interest from Real Madrid. And the reigning La Liga champions are ready to offer a part-exchange deal to sign the Serbian striker from Serie A club Juventus. Such an arrangement will see 30-year-old utility man David Alaba heading the other way.
Dusan Vlahovic has established himself as one of the best strikers in Serie A in the last few years. The 23-year-old rose to prominence during his three-and-a-half-year stint with La Viola. And while he has progressed considerably since joining the Bianconeri, he has blown hot and cold this term.
The Serbian striker has managed only 12 goals and four assists in 37 appearances across all competitions this season. And Vlahovic’s long-term Juventus future is uncertain in the wake of the recent controversy surrounding the Serie A giants. Such a situation has captured the attention of Real Madrid.
The reigning La Liga champions are in the market for a striker amid Karim Benzema’s fitness woes this term. While the French striker remains prolific and clinical in the final third, his injury-riddled season has opened Real Madrid’s eyes. The reigning La Liga champions are thus keen on having an alternatie in the first-team squad.
Vlahovic has thus emerged as a viable target for Real Madrid, with intermediaries recently offering him to Los Blancos. But according to Calciomercatoweb, the 23-year-old has become a top target for Real Madrid. And the report claims the Merengues are plotting a part-exchange deal to sign him from Juventus.
The reigning La Liga champions will offer the Serie A club the opportunity to sign David Alaba as part of the deal. While the rumour seems bizarre, the 30-year-old utility man has been injury-prone this season. But despite his fitness woes, Alaba can become an asset for Juventus amid the recent defensive issues.
