Real Madrid have reportedly rejected an approach from Manchester United for Rodrygo Goes, as Florentino Perez has no interest in selling.

According to Defensa Central, Real Madrid may have rejected an approach from Manchester United for Rodrygo Goes. The Red Devils were seemingly ready to pay around €130 million for the 23-year-old Real Madrid mainstay, although Florentino Perez had no interest in selling the Brazilian.

Manchester United suffer Rodrygo Goes blow

Rodrygo Goes has established himself as one of Real Madrid’s mainstays over the last few years and recently landed a lucrative new deal at the Santiago Bernabeu. The 23-year-old winger has been one of their critical attackers alongside compatriot Vinicius Junior, although he has not been at his best this season.

While many Premier League sides are keen on the Brazilian, Florentino Perez has no intention of parting ways with the 23-year-old Real Madrid mainstay. The report talks about Manchester United’s potential approach for Rodrygo, suggesting Perez has already rejected a possible offer from the Premier League giants.

The story continues to talk numbers and insists Manchester United would have paid around €130 million for the attacker. On paper, that’s a reasonable enough sum for someone who has not had the best campaigns, and Real Madrid might have ideally considered the approach with Kylian Mbappe, who is likely to join them next summer.

In any case, Perez will likely stick to his decision and keep Rodrygo hoping to fulfil his vision of having him, Vinicius and Mbappe as his front three next season. However, should the Brazilian ask to leave the club, the club president’s position might change drastically, which could rekindle Manchester United’s hopes.

Will Rodrygo Goes leave Real Madrid?

The primary concern around Rodrygo’s immediate future at Real Madrid could be connected to the potential arrival of Mbappe. The Brazilian might find his place under threat should the Frenchman come here, and once the move is confirmed, the winger might start thinking about his future.

Manchester City are keen on him, while there’s also interest from Liverpool and PSG should Real Madrid make him available. In the right sense, he’s been a top performer for Real Madrid and may not voluntarily ask to leave, although stranger things have happened in football, which may keep his future uncertain for the time being.
