Real Madrid is reportedly interested in signing RB Leipzig’s attacking midfielder, Dani Olmo. According to journalist Sergio Santos, Real Madrid has enquired about his situation and sees him as a valuable addition to their team.
Olmo started his career at Barcelona’s La Masia academy before moving to Dinamo Zagreb and later RB Leipzig in January 2020. Since joining Leipzig, the 24-year-old Spaniard has enhanced his reputation as one of the most sought-after players in Europe.
Despite Leipzig keen on offering him an extension, Dani Olmo has shown no desire to renew his contract that expires in 2024. It is claimed that he desires a return to Spain, which has alerted Real Madrid.
Los Blancos see Olmo as a perfect fit for their transfer plans as he is versatile enough to play anywhere across the frontline or operate as an interior midfielder.
Additionally, given that his contract expires in 2024, Real Madrid believes they can sign him for a fair price in the inflated market.
If Olmo joins Real Madrid, it would also add more homegrown Spanish talent to the team, something that Real Madrid always looks to do.
Furthermore, Brahim Diaz’s return from his loan spell at AC Milan would enable manager Carlo Ancelotti to relieve Rodrygo of his duties on the right flank and utilize him as a second striker.
Eyeing Dani Olmo for Summer Signing
Although Dani Olmo came through the youth ranks at Barcelona’s La Masia academy, he is open to playing for Real Madrid despite his past roots at Barcelona and links of a return to Camp Nou.
The Spanish international prefers Real Madrid over Barcelona and Atletico Madrid at this point in his career and is excited at the prospect of returning to Spain and competing to win titles regularly.
Preliminary contacts have been made, and it remains to be seen how things will develop in the coming months. Real Madrid can either sign him by paying a fee this summer or wait until 2024 to sign him up as a free agent.
