Barcelona vs Real Madrid

THE DEFENDER COULD BECOME A LONG-TERM DEFENSIVE PARTNER TO LIVERPOOL STAR VIRGIL VAN DIJK BUT REAL MADRID ARE REPORTEDLY IN THE RACE TO SIGN THE SEVILLA DEFENDER.

Media Reports suggest La Liga giants Real Madrid are in the race to sign 26-year-old Brazilian defender Diego Carlos. The defender currently playing for another La Liga outfit – Sevilla – and has been impressive for the Spanish side.

English Premier League side Liverpool have also been linked with a move for the Brazilian. He has been termed as a potential long-term partner to the impressive Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool defense.

The league leaders already have a star-studded and excellent defensive department. Jurgen Klopp’s side has only conceded just 15 goals in the Premier League so far this season, the least by any side in the league. They also appear to be unstoppable at the moment and enjoy a clear lead at the top of the table. They have dropped only two points in the Premier League so far this season, winning 22 of 23 games they have played.

LIVERPOOL TO FACE COMPETITION FROM REAL MADRID

But the Red will now reportedly face competition from Los Blancos. Several Reports suggest Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen on bringing the Sevilla defender to beef up the defensive department.

However, whoever ends up signing the Brazilian defender will have to shell out a whopping transfer fee in order to acquire the services. The defender is highly and reports indicate it will cost at least 75 million Euros.

The defender had joined Sevilla from Ligue One side Nantes in 2019. The player has since become a regular for the club. He has already made 22 appearances for the Spanish side and has two goals to his name this season.
