Real Madrid is willing not to wait until the next summer transfer market to reinforce its central defense and has set its eyes on Gonçalo Inácio, a Sporting CP defender. According to reports from ‘AS’, the white club is eager to secure the services of Inácio during the winter transfer market.
The urgency has become evident after the serious injury to Éder Militao, who will be out of action for much of the season.
The signing of 60 million that Real Madrid wants to make in the winter market
Real Madrid’s interest in Gonçalo Inácio is based on his quality and potential, which has caught the attention of Carlo Ancelotti. The Portuguese, at only 22 years old, has proven to be a solid and versatile defender, and his ability to adapt to different contexts on the field of play has been a point in his favor. Ancelotti, who has asked Florentino Pérez for a defensive signing, sees in him the piece that could take Militao’s place and strengthen the team’s defensive line.
The Portuguese defender has a €60 million clause in his contract, a significant increase from the initial €45 million. This new agreement, which links him to Sporting CP until June 2027, has made Madrid and other interested clubs take his signing seriously. It is an important operation, but one that comes hand in hand with his impressive performance and potential.
Inácio has proven his worth at Sporting CP, amassing an impressive record of 11 goals and 8 assists in 134 official matches with the team. Despite his youth, he has become an indispensable player both in his club and in the Portuguese national team, where he has been sharing a position with Antonio Silva.
The defender has attracted attention not only for his confidence in defense but also for his ability to join the attack and contribute to the creation of scoring opportunities. His versatility on the pitch makes him a valuable asset for any team looking to strengthen their defensive line and his aerial play ability is also a notable attribute. Another club that has shown interest in signing him is Klopp’s Liverpool.
