Defensive Target: Real Madrid Faces €60m Price Tag in 2024

Real Madrid’s reported interest in signing young defender Goncalo Inacio from Sporting CP seems promising, With aging center-backs in their current roster, Inacio could provide a long-term solution.

The asking price of €60m may seem steep, but the possibility of negotiating it down to €45m makes it an appealing option for Real Madrid.

Earlier in the week, it was reported that Real Madrid has shown interest in acquiring the services of Goncalo Inacio from Sporting CP, The 22-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most promising young central defenders in Europe, and he has garnered attention from other prestigious clubs such as Manchester United and Liverpool.

Real Madrid currently has three centre-backs who are over the age of 30, namely David Alaba, Antonio Rudiger, and Nacho Fernandez, Given that Fernandez’s contract expires next summer, Inacio could potentially join as a suitable replacement and establish himself in the team for the long term.

According to reliable sources like Diario AS, Sporting has set an asking price of €60m for Inacio, representing his release clause. However, the Portuguese club has expressed their willingness to accept an up-front payment of €45m, with the remaining €15m to be paid in add-ons.

Real Madrid may find this price offer quite enticing, Although they are not looking to sign Inacio in January, a potential deal could be negotiated next summer, provided that the club’s decision-makers view him as their primary target for the centre-back position.
