Spanish giants looking to move for young midfielder Pedro Chirivella.
Real Madrid are looking to poach young Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella, report the Mail, as interest from back home begins to intensify in the Spain Under 18 captain whose playing style has been linked to current Bayern Munich midfielder and former Anfield star Xabi Alonso.
Liverpool only brought Chirivella to the Premier League twelve months ago, striking a deal with Valencia to pay compensation of just £200,000 for the youngster, beating both Real Madrid and Barcelona to the punch as both considered moves for the classy teenage midfielder.
Real have reportedly identified a lack of quality within the club’s youth teams as an issue that could hold them back and are on a recruitment drive, identifying Chirivella as a player who could come in and really improve the level of talent in their C and B teams before graduating to becoming a first team star at the Bernabeu in the future.
Liverpool are likely to be well aware of Chirivella’s quality, however, and will be bracing themselves for bids from Real and the near future with a determination not to allow one of their most exciting young talents leave the club so soon after his arrival.
