On Wednesday, Cadena Ser stated Real Madrid have joined Arsenal in chasing Alexander Isak.
AS on Thursday has a report on the Real Sociedad star, focusing on Los Blancos and the Gunners.
The 21-year-old is managed by Universal Sports Group and it’s claimed Madrid made ‘first contact’ with the forward’s representatives.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side ‘asked about the chances’ of the Sweden international leaving La Real this summer.
Like Real Madrid, the north London club have ‘already contacted’ the agent of the Real Sociedad attacker because ‘interest is strong’ from Mikel Arteta’s side.
Real Sociedad want to retain the player for one more season. The San Sebastian club are ‘not willing to negotiate’ and if Real Madrid, Arsenal or any other club want to take Isak this summer, they ‘will refer to his termination clause’ of €70m.
In other words, the only way any club can take Isak away from Anoeta is by paying his €70m release clause. For now, Real Sociedad’s offices have not received any offers for the former Borussia Dortmund man, who has impressed for Sweden at Euro 2020.
Isak finished the 2020/21 season with 17 goals and two assists in 34 league matches.
