He real Madrid is considering the possibility of signing andrew robertson as a replacement for Ferland Mendy, whose future at the club is in doubt. The Scottish winger has been identified as the ideal defender to replace Mendy’s eventual departure in the next transfer window.
The white club is working on planning for the next season and there are several uncertainties in the squad. Ferland Mendy has lost his undisputed status in recent weeks due to constant injuries, which has led Real Madrid to consider selling him if they receive a good offer. With this possible situation in mind, Real Madrid seeks to anticipate any eventuality and has designated Andrew Robertson as his possible replacement, according to Defensa Central.
Andrew Robertson, Real Madrid’s new target for the left back
The Scottish winger has been on the merengue team’s agenda for several years and his profile fits the tastes of the club. However, the operation could be affected by Liverpool’s future in qualifying for the Champions League. If the English team fails to secure their participation in European competition, Robertson would not be willing to leave the club.
It is estimated that the transfer of Robertson would be around 45-50 million euros, an amount similar to what Real Madrid expects to receive for a possible sale of Mendy. Although Liverpool will not let their player go easily, the lack of participation in the Champions League could make it difficult to retain him.
Real Madrid continues to explore other options on the market, as there are positions that are being prioritized in their planning. At the moment, Andrew Robertson is the player who seems to be in the best position to replace an eventual exit of the French winger, although we will have to wait for how the negotiations develop and for Liverpool’s decisions regarding his future.
