Real Madrid ready to pay release clause for Betis’ Júnior Firpo
Júnior Firpo has been identified as one of Real Madrid’s key objectives for next season.
The left-sided adolescent is substantiating himself one of the sensations leaving the present Real Betis side under Quique Setién and after impressive performances Los Blancos are willing to pay the 50 million euros of his release clause, seeing him move in the summer of 2019.
Junior is the Real objective
Although Santiago Solari has been very happy with the performance of Sergio Reguilón as a back-up for Marcelo, there is a conviction at the club that the Betis man (additionally 22 years of age) is ideal to take over from the Brazilian.
The iconic defender turns 31 in May and Madrid need to guarantee there is an appropriate successor.
With Junior seen as an important signing, the European champions are looking to keep the transfer situation as simple as possible.
Consequently they intend to stump up the full estimation of the player’s discharge condition as opposed to go into any negotiations with the club from Seville, just as they did with Sergio Ramos.
The 50-million-euro clause was included in the contract extension that the player signed in August, one that runs until 2023. Obviously however, Madrid confront rivalry for the marking of Junior from Premier League big boys Arsenal and Manchester City.
Finding a suitable replacement for left-back is something the Bernabéu club has been trying to resolve over recent seasons.
