Real Madrid manager José Mourinho has set his sights on Newcastle United forward Andrew Carroll , according to Spanish sources.
Mourinho is looking to boost his striking options, particularly in the wake of Gonzalo Higuain’s injury and amid the apparently little faith he has in Karim Benzema.
Carroll has had an impressive start to his first Premier League season, with 10 goals and five assists in 17 games – an efficiency ratio of a goal or assist every 96.33 minutes.
And the 21-year-old striker’s impressive adjustment to the top flight has sparked heavy interest from a number of clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur , Liverpool and Inter Milan. (IMScouting)
Alan Pardew will have his work cut out to prevent Andy Carroll from having his head turned by the interest that appears to be directed at him. The England international’s marvellous start to the season has led many of Europe’s elite to form a queue for the 21 year old and one wonders what will happen in the summer.
Some sources state that Jose Mourinho is ready of offer up to £22m for Carroll as the Real Madrid boss continues to set his sights on the best young players in Europe. Given that the Bernabeu manager has already snapped up the likes of Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira and Angel Di Maria one could argue that he would be able to nab the impressive striker given that he is some way below those young talents.
After scoring ten goals already this season the powerfully built front man will feel that he is on the top of the world and it will be up to the new St James’ Park boss to make sure his prized asset remains grounded. Carroll for his part has pledged his future to his local club but what happens if an actual offer from the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea of Man United comes in for the 6ft 3in star in the making?
