Lucas Vázquez’s preferred position is on the wing, but Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has largely used him as a right-back this season.
Manchester United reportedly had their eyes set on the 29-year-old as a backup for Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the right-back position. However, the Spain international then had no intention of joining the Red Devils.
Manchester United are still looking at Vázquez if a report from Thursday’s edition of Sport is to be believed.
The versatile player can leave Los Blancos as a free agent in the summer, if the latter fail to tie him down to a new deal.
Zidane has insisted his employer resolve the Spaniard’s contract situation. Real Madrid have offered him a three-year deal and asked him to take a 10 percent pay cut on his current salary of €3.5m net per season.
Vázquez is of the belief the Madrid club’s offer ‘does not fit his performances’. Therefore, he has decided ‘not to renew’ his contract.
Bayern Munich are also interested in Vázquez and it’s claimed the Bavarian club are ahead in the transfer race.
Sport state the German giants, who are ready to offer a four-year contract with a salary rise, ‘may finally become Vázquez’s next destination’.
This may not come as an encouragement for United, if they retain a firm interest in the Real Madrid man.
