Real Madrid Interested In Signing Another French Teenage Prodigy
Real Madrid, the reigning La Liga champions, is keeping a careful eye on the development of Isaak Toure.
It has been reported by Defensa Central that Real Madrid is interested in signing Isaak Toure in the summer transfer window. Toure is currently with the French national team. To keep tabs on the 19-year-old Le Havre prodigy, the Merengues have been following his growth for over two years.
Isaak Toure spent his formative years with three different teams. First with A. En Avant Saint-Pierre and then going on to Le Havre after a one-year sojourn with CO Cleon in the midst of his career. Since joining Le Havre in 2014, the adolescent prodigy has progressed in leaps and bounds. He has already established himself as a regular in the first-team lineup.
The 19-year-old wonderkid has made 14 appearances for Les Ciel et Marine in Ligue 2 this season. He is beginning to attract the interest of some of the most prestigious teams in Europe. And, with the French defender’s contract at Le Havre set to expire in a little over a year, the arrival of Real Madrid in his chase has the potential to change his mind completely.
Eder Militao and David Alaba have formed a formidable central defensive combination for Real Madrid. The club will almost certainly want to add another centre-back during the summer transfer window. However, after the two revealed a weakness in their armour during Real Madrid’s 4-0 loss to Barcelona, strengthening the heart of the defence may become a priority for the club.
What will Los Blancos decide?
This is because Nacho is on the wrong side of thirty and is just a backup choice at best. Jesus Vallejo may leave Real Madrid in the summer transfer window in pursuit of more regular playing time elsewhere. So, Carlo Ancelotti will just have one other centre-back at his disposal. Furthermore, with Victor Chust being linked to Manchester City, Real Madrid will be forced to look elsewhere for a replacement.
To do this, numerous center-backs, notably Antonio Rudiger, have been linked to Real Madrid in recent months. Nevertheless, with someone like Isaak Toure, Real Madrid will have a player who has the potential to take over from David Alaba for good in a few years, much as Raphael Varane did for Pepe a few years ago.
Toure has been on Real Madrid’s radar for more than two years, according to Defensa Central. Juni Calafat, the club’s head scout, is keeping a close eye on his development. Because the contract of the 19-year-old French prodigy with Le Havre expires in a little over a year, a summer transfer to Real Madrid is a distinct possibility.
