Real Madrid could sign this Man Utd superstar in an attempt to copy that ‘Cristiano Ronaldo move’

Florentino Perez

In an attempt to replicate the strategy he employed to attract Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen to see a current Manchester United player.

In 2009, Ronaldo left England for Spain, moving from United to Madrid in a then-record-breaking £80 million deal.

Before leaving for Juventus in 2018, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner established himself as the greatest player in Los Blancos’ historic history.

Madrid has since changed their approach to transfers. The club is now focused on developing younger talent rather than signing ready-made superstars.

With the addition of Endrick to their offense this summer, they have strengthened their midfield with the additions of Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouamini.

Alejandro Garnacho is reportedly the target of Perez’s current push, according to the Spanish publication Real Madrid Exclusivo.

The 19-year-old is one of Erik Ten Hag’s most-used players and has been a shining light for the team this season. Real has been keeping an eye on Garnacho for the past 12 months; he has seven goals and four assists.

Perez will be in Manchester the following month for Real Madrid’s quarterfinal Champions League matchup with Manchester City. While in England, he is reportedly eager to meet with Garnacho and discuss possible trade options with the Argentina international.

Having played alongside Ronaldo during the Portugal legend’s second spell in England, the adolescent is a huge fan of the player.

Garnacho participated in the whole 120 minutes of United’s thrilling 4-3 FA Cup quarterfinal win over Liverpool on Sunday.

Theo Walcott lauded him for his assist on Amad’s winner in the final minute. He praised Garnacho’s calmness and quickness on the counter to find Amad.

“He seems to be getting faster and faster,” Walcott remarked.

“The pass he delays it, delays it, and of course, Amad, fantastic finish.
