Real Madrid considering Andrew Robertson swoop

Real Madrid are reportedly linked with Scottish defender Andrew Robertson, with Liverpool demanding around €45-50 million for him.

Andrew Robertson has established himself as one of the best left-backs in the Premier League. So it is no surprise that the top clubs are looking to sign him. According to a report from Defensa Central, Real Madrid are hoping to shore up their defensive options this summer and have identified the 28-year-old as a potential target.

Real Madrid defender Ferland Mendy has been linked with a move away from the club this summer, and they will need to replace him adequately. Signing a quality left-back should be a top priority for Carlo Ancelotti, and Andrew Robertson would certainly improve them.

The Liverpool defender is outstanding going forward, and he can be quite reliable defensively. Although he has not been at his best this season, he has the potential to play for the best clubs in the world. The Scot is at the peak of his career and could make an immediate impact at the Spanish club.

It remains to be seen whether Liverpool are prepared to sanction his departure in the coming weeks. The Reds already need a number of signings, and they will not want to lose another key player this summer. They will have to bring in multiple midfield reinforcements. And a central defender this summer. Keeping Robertson at the club will be one of their priorities.

The Scottish defender is unlikely to force a move away from Liverpool either. The 28-year-old is admired by the fans and the manager Jurgen Klopp. He is a regular starter at the club, and there is no reason for him to force an exit this summer. But the report claims that €45-50 million might get the job done.

An opportunity to play for a club like Real Madrid can be an attractive option for most players. And the Spanish giants will be hoping they can turn his head during the summer transfer window. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few weeks now.

Liverpool have Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas as the only left-backs at the club, and they will have to sign a top-class replacement for the Scottish international if he leaves for Real Madrid in the summer. Real Madrid certainly are financially strong enough to pay €45-50 million to sign the Scot.
