Real Madrid have identified a ‘serious problem’ with signing Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana; his injury record.

That’s according to Defensa Central, who say the Leicester man is one of two names the Spanish side are keeping a ‘close eye’ on as they look to bolster their defence.

They want to strengthen their squad for next season and add some quality if they can, and the centre of defence is a particular problem area.

Fofana and Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger are two of the players that could arrive in June, although only one of them will be signed.

The Leicester man is currently out injured, and Madrid are worried about that fact because it is the latest in a line of injuries he’s suffered.

They believe he is ‘prone’ to injuries, despite being so young, and that is causing ‘great concern’ at the Bernabeu.

That’s because they remember the problems they’ve had with players of that nature down the years, with Jonathan Woodgate the prime example.

His time at the club was cut short by ‘continuous’ injuries, and there is a worry about Fofana that they would be signing up for a similar experience

The Leicester man ‘dreams’ of playing for Los Merengues, and the 20-year-old is highly rated in Madrid, but they are waiting to see how he returns from his latest injury before deciding to sign him.

At the moment, that injury, and those in the past, are ‘putting the club off’ making their move at this moment in time.
