In a recent report, Fichajes mentioned that Real Madrid are willing to give up Isco for AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli this summer. It is understood that Los Blancos are planning to strengthen their defensive options by recruiting the Italian centre-back in this off-season (via Fichajes).
Romagnoli’s Decent Form In Italian Football Last Season
Romagnoli managed to establish himself as a commanding figure at the heart of the AC Milan defence and was responsible for putting in a run of dominant displays for them at the back. The 26-year-old registered one goal and one assist in 30 appearances for his current club last season in various competitions.
The Italian centre-half deserves a pat on the back for averaging 0.8 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 3.5 clearances per 90 minutes in Serie A. He even took care of the ball when distributing it from the back after making 89.6% of his attempted passes in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).
Romagnoli is playing some of the best football of his career at the moment, so he will be able to make an immediate impact at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium if Carlo Ancelotti can find a way to seal a move for the Italian defensive ace in this summer transfer window.
Real Madrid Willing To Give Up Isco For Romagnoli: Good Move For Everyone Involved?
Romagnoli is a no-nonsense centre-half who can read the danger quickly and clear his lines when needed. Standing at 1.85m, he is a strong presence on the ball and can often bully the opposition attackers in the air. The 12-time Italy international loves to play his way out from the back and hardly gives away the ball. Hence, he will fit into Ancelotti’s style of play quite well at the Bernabeu as long as he can make a smooth transition from Italian to Spanish football.
At 26, Romagnoli has plenty of good years left in his locker, so he would be a shrewd buy for Los Blancos even if they have to give up Isco in the process. The AC Milan centre-back will be well worth it as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what Ancelotti needs from his central defenders.
Isco can benefit from a switch to Milan in search of more playing time while Romagnoli could also enjoy plying his trade in Madrid as he looks to win some major trophies in the years to come. All in all, Real Madrid’s proposal to give up Isco for Romagnoli seems like a good move for both the players and the Madrid outfit this summer.
