Real Madrid star Carvajal tells Arsenal and Man United ‘he wants Premier League move’
Real Madrid star Dani Carvajal has told the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United ‘that he dreams of playing in the Premier League’
Regarded as one of the finest right-backs in world football, Carvajal has been linked with a move to the Premier League for a number of transfer windows, as United see him as the long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia while Arsenal will need a replacement if Hector Bellerin joins Barcelona.
Madrid signed Alvaro Odriozola for £40m last summer and Carvajal fears for his future at the Bernabeu, despite being a regular starter under former boss Zinedine Zidane and And he has suggested he could leave the club by admitting he would like to play in England.
He was quoted on the Metro website:‘I would love to play in the Premier League.
‘It’s an experience that I would love to have and I don’t want to be left cursing not having experienced it.’
Now Carvajal has a contract at Madrid until 2022, but with a number of changes expected to arise next summer, reports have claimed Madrid could accept anything between £40-60 million for the Spanish international.
Could he end up at Arsenal or United? Here is what we think.
Prising him away from Madrid will not be a cheap one of either United or Arsenal, as his high price tag comes along with a big £300,000-a-week wage packet, so both clubs will need to spend big money to secure his services.
However, the man is top-class and if he gets the move to the Premier League, he would be a world class addition to any squad, especially since it will not just be United and Arsenal that will make a move if he becomes available.
