Real Madrid are reportedly interested in Manchester City’s highly-rated young full-back Yan Couto as a transfer target for the summer.
The 21-year-old has not yet featured in a competitive game for Man City, but has impressed on loan at one of their affiliate clubs Girona this season, with his form in La Liga clearly showing Madrid that he could perhaps be a good option to do a job for them.
According to Spanish outlet Marca, as translated by Sport Witness, Real have been impressed by Couto and now feel he could be a good option to sign as someone to compete with Dani Carvajal for a place at right-back.
City fans will no doubt be keeping an eye on this as Couto could end up being someone worth recalling and introducing into their first-team setup before too long.
Of course, there’s plenty of competition for places at the Etihad Stadium, but if a club like Real Madrid are showing an interest, it surely gives Pep Guardiola something to think about.
