La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid are reportedly pondering about a possible €50 million swoop of Bayern Munich attacker Serge Gnabry.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Serge Gnabry has again become the subject of interest from Real Madrid over a possible move in the summer transfer window. Los Blancos will need to shell out €50 million to secure the services of the Bayern Munich forward.
Serge Gnabry has found a stable footing in his career since joining Bayern Munich nearly half a decade ago. The German international has become a mainstay in the attack for both club and country and will likely be on the flight to Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup later this year.
The 26-year-old has amassed 64 goals and 40 assists in 171 appearances for Bayern Munich thus far. But Gnabry faces an uncertain future at Bayern Munich after entering the final year of his contract with the Bundesliga champions. Such a situation has captured the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe, including Real Madrid.
Los Blancos initially planned not to delve into the market for a wide-attacker in the summer transfer window despite failing to secure the services of Kylian Mbappe in a Bosman move. But Real Madrid’s plans have changed in the last few weeks amid rampant uncertainties surrounding the future of Marco Asensio.
The Spanish international could depart from the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer transfer window, compelling Real Madrid to scour the market for a replacement. Gnabry has thus again emerged as a viable target for Real Madrid, even though recent reports claimed that they would not pursue him this year.
At the same time, widespread reports suggested that Gnabry wants to remain at Bayern Munich, which might complicate matters for Real Madrid. But the Bundesliga champions are ready to cash in on the German international if a suitor shells out €50 million to secure his services.
With AC Milan and Arsenal hot on the heels of Asensio, the Spanish giants are weighing up a €50 million move for Gnabry, as they might be able to land him without paying much from their pocket. But a move for the Bayern Munich attacker depends on Asensio’s possible exit this summer.
