According to Spanish media “Defensa Central”, Carlo Ancelotti, the coach of La Liga giant Real Madrid , has a strong interest in the introduction of the 24-year-old defender Davide Laum of the Bundesliga RB Leipzig in the summer transfer window, but RB Leipzig will ask Real Madrid for 40 million euros to sell this fiery core player.
Become the core of the lineup this season
Raum has always been an outstanding offensive full-back in the Bundesliga. He joined Hoffenheim from Fürth in 2021 and provided 11 assists and 3 goals in 32 games. He is good at creating offensive opportunities for his teammates. His ability and performance have attracted the covetousness of many top clubs in Europe.
Until he transferred to RB Leipzig last summer, he played 22 games this season and contributed 1 assist. His level of performance also made him an indispensable core role in the lineup. At the same time, it also attracted the attention of many clubs, including Real Madrid.
Real Madrid want Raum as long-term replacement for Mendy
With 27-year-old French defender Ferland Mendy facing an uncertain future at Real Madrid and with sources reportedly considering a sale for the French defender this summer, Real Madrid need to enter the transfer market in search of their ideal left-back replacement Mendy.
And Raum is at the peak of his career. He is good at playing in the third zone and is quite attractive. He is the right candidate for Real Madrid this summer. However, RB Leipzig, which regards Raum as a core player, will not give him up easily, and is expected to offer a transfer price worth up to 40 million euros to Real Madrid.
Although the amount of 40 million euros may not be enough for Real Madrid with strong financial resources. However, it is reported that Real Madrid’s move to invest in the introduction of Raum still depends on Mendy’s determination of the basis for leaving the team. In addition, in addition to including Raum in the list of signings this summer, Real Madrid is also paying close attention to several left backs such as the 23-year-old defender Fran Garcia who is currently playing for Vallecano in La Liga.
