Fri 18 June 2021 | 5:37

Real Madrid have shown interest in Roma’s full-back Leonardo Spinazzola and are reportedly in talks with the player’s agent over a swap deal to bring the Italian international to the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid

are desperate to sign a new left-back as they want to reinforce their ranks and offload


to reduce their wage bill.

According to


, Madrid have set their sights on the 28-year-old to boost their prospects on the left-side of defense, evidently impressed by his performances so far this summer;


was named man of the match during Italy’s 3-0 victory over Turkey.

His agent

Davide Lippi

has met

Luis Campos

and his right-hand man

Ludovic Fattizzo

in South France. Campos is the former sporting director of Lille and was meeting Lippi on behalf of Real Madrid.

Los Blancos are trying to execute a swap deal, one that would see

Borja Mayoral

, who joined


on a two-year loan deal in 2020, head to the Italian capital in exchange for Spinazzola, forgoing the €20m obligation to buy included in the deal.

Roma could have made Borja Mayoral’s move permanent at the end of the 2020-21 campaign but failed to activate their clause.

Spinazzola joined Roma from Juventus in 2019 in a player-plus-cash swap deal with Luca Pellegrini.
