A sports enthusiast in his mid-twenties who reads, breathes, as well as dreams (mostly) about football and attempts to share his views with the fanatics by jotting it down. Prefers to learn through extensive interaction, communication and exploration. So don't be in a quandary and SHOOT.

Despite conquering the league crown last season, Zinedine Zidane is yet to rebuild the momentum this term, and the worldwide pandemic has refrained the board from spending big during the summer window. Yet Los Blancos need reinforcements to work on a few shortcomings and according to Spanish outlet AS, Real Madrid are keeping close tabs on RB Salzburg sensation Dominik Szoboszlai.

The 20-year-old Hungarian has made his nation proud recently with an injury-time winner against Iceland. His incredible strike earned Hungary a place in next year’s European championship whereas the promises showcased over the past couple of campaigns have now drawn the attention of Real Madrid.

Competition Amid Interest From The Others

The Spanish hotshots, however, are not alone in the hunt with Liverpool, Arsenal, AC Milan and RB Leipzig all having expressed their interest too. While the Reds share a fruitful relationship with the Red Bull group; Leipzig are better placed than the others having made several transfers with their unofficial sister club, Red Bull Salzburg. Yet a club of Real Madrid’s stature hold the upper hand in terms of pulling power and Szoboszlai, hailed for his versatility behind the attacking line, would be a massive coup due to his growing influence and expertise as a creative playmaker.

Why Real Madrid Are After Szoboszlai

Not only is the youngster suited as a ‘number 10’ but also down the wide as well in a slightly deeper midfield role. Isco’s lack of minutes led to controversy when the Spaniard was caught on camera criticizing Zidane a few weeks back, and Szoboszlai is now tipped to replace the 28-year-old Real Madrid ace who is available next summer for a fee in the region of €30m.

Los Blancos raised more than €100m in sales during the COVID-19 crisis and therefore, are stable enough to invest in the squad once the season concludes. They might even go for him in winter but a move next summer suits all parties involved considering the player’s game-time and progress by that period.

Real Madrid have emphasised on signing the rising stars of late and Szoboszlai, with 5 goals (4 of them are in Europe) and 9 assists this season in 13 outings [Transfermarket], ticks all the boxes to follow the footsteps of Hungary legend Ferenc Puskás, regarded as one of the finest players ever to don the shirt of this prestigious and iconic football club.
