“The board would like to, ideally, close the transaction within 48 hours. This will be a loan without option to buy, Real paid €4m to Stromsgodset for his arrival (€8.5 million with bonus) and don’t intend to abdicate of the idea of seeing him shine one day so quickly”, said the Spanish source.
“There are a dozen offers on the table, including of a club from Liga, plus the English from West Ham and Liverpool, German clubs (Leverkusen, Hamburg) and Ajax Amsterdam.
“In recent hours, Stade Rennais showed up and are well positioned. Initially, Martin preferred Germany, but Zidane will choose…”
