Konaté, the central defender that Madrid and Barcelona like

The Leipzig defender is on the agenda of the two greats of Spanish football. Its price ranges between 25 and 30 million. Zidane is impressed.


Leipzig center-back Ibrahima Konaté is on the agenda for Real Madrid and Barcelona. The 21-year-old French defender is one of Europe's most promising center-backs and has caught the attention of the greats of Spanish football. At 1.94 in height, he is a physical marvel. Madrid has followed him for more than a year and only a fiber break, which has forced him to miss 37 games, has prevented the white club from deciding to take the step yet. Barcelona, for its part, also has Konaté as one of its objectives to correct the problems it has been having this season in the center of the rear.Both Madrid and Barcelona were interested in signing Dayot Upamecano, but his recent move to Bayern has caused his place on the list to be filled by his teammate in the center of Leipzig's rear. His termination clause is 45 million, but the German club would be willing to negotiate a transfer for a figure that is around 25 or 30 million. In Madrid, Zidane is his main supporter. The Madrid coach is impressed with his physical strength and would see him as the ideal replacement to cover a possible departure from Varane.

Injuries have been his weak point the last two seasons. This campaign has suffered the consequences of the fiber breakage that it suffered last season and has missed 3 games this year for that reason. In addition, he has been absent in another seven more due to an ankle injury because of which he is still picking up competition rhythm. Injuries aside, the technical reports handled by both clubs are very good.

In Madrid, however, the list of candidates to occupy the center of the rear next season is wide. The favorites, at the moment, are Pau Torres, Alaba and Koundé. In principle, one of them will arrive at the white club next summer. Although the situations of Varane, who wants to leave, and Ramos, who remains unrenewed, could cause that there were two centrals that Madrid signed for next season.
