After Fiorentina Perez shown interest in signing him, Samuel Chukwueze has lately been linked to a transfer to Real Madrid
Real Madrid might be holding back on signing Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal in the next summer transfer window.
Real Madrid President, Fiorentina Perez, is said to have taken an interest in the Nigerian and was considering teaming him with Vinícius Júnior to strengthen Carlo Ancelotti’s team.
According to report, the Vikings could decide not to sign the Nigerian owing to his injury records.
While playing under Unai Emery, the Villarreal attacker missed a total of 15 games due to an injury. But, since that time, the Nigerian has been leading the charge for the Yellow Submarines.
The best European teams have taken notice of the Nigerian star, and they will be vying for his signing in the coming summer thanks to his remarkable performance for his club, where he now leads the team in assists.
He did, however, amaze the Santiago Bernabéu crowd with his brace and fast feet, which enabled Quique Setién’s to secure a win.
But, after expressing interest in joining the La Liga powerhouses, his transfer may encounter some difficulties since Real Madrid would only be ready to pay 50 million euros with regard to his contract’s 80 million-euro buyout clause.
Meanwhile, none of the parties involved has yet been able to corroborate this story, but if it is true, the Nigerian player’s desire to join Real Madrid may have run into a snag.
