According to Spanish newspaper AS, Real Madrid are interested in signing the 20-year-old while Manchester United and Atletico Madrid have enquired about him. The report also claims that Valencia and Getafe and interested in Salisu who has a release clause of €12 million.

The Ghanian has done fairly well for Valladolid this season so far and there’s a good chance that at some point, he will leave the club. It seems quite unlikely that Manchester United or Real Madrid would make a bid for him now. Even if both clubs manage to sign Salisu, it wouldn’t be a very good move for him right now as he wouldn’t get sufficient game time. The 20-year-old could stay for a couple of years in Valladolid before securing a move to another club.
