La Liga giants Real Madrid are set to beat the Premier League duo of Chelsea and Liverpool to the coveted signature of Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno this summer.
Both the Reds and the Blues have been keeping close tabs on the hugely talented young full back of late as each side looks to sign a new left-sided defender for next season.
The west London club will allow experienced England international Ashley Cole to quit Stamford Bridge on a Bosman free transfer when the 33-year-old’s current deal in the capital runs out at the end of June.
Meanwhile, the Merseysiders have already decided not to take up an option to keep hold of Valencia left wing-back Aly Cissokho when the Frenchman’s season-long loan spell at Anfield comes to an end at the climax to this campaign.
And both outfits were understood to be preparing big-money offers to try to tempt Sevilla to part company with their newly capped Spain international when the summer transfer window reopened for business.
However, both sides will have to now start looking elsewhere at alternative left-back targets after it emerged in Spain that Moreno will be moving to Los Blancos, who themselves are preparing to allow in-demand Portugal international Fabio Coentrao to move to the Premier League.
