Dani Carvajal has established himself as one of Europe’s greatest full-backs since returning from a one-year loan spell at Bayer Leverkusen. The Spanish international has been a staple in the back for Real Madrid for the greater part of a decade, contributing significantly to the club’s several titles during that time.
To date, the 30-year-old defender has appeared 318 times for Real Madrid, with seven goals and 52 assists. However, with his performance levels dwindling as a result of a few fitness difficulties over the last year, the Spanish giants are considering purchasing a right-back in the summer transfer window. This would jeopardize the player’s position at the club.
According to Spanish site Defensa Central, Real Madrid may face a battle to keep Dani Carvajal in the summer transfer window. Several Major League Soccer clubs have expressed interest in the 30-year-old defender, but the Merengues are unwilling to deal him.
However, Carvajal continues to be an integral part of Ancelotti’s plans. The Italian is convinced of the player’s abilities and believes he could be back to his best soon. As such, Real Madrid is not interested in offloading Carvajal at the moment.
In over 300 appearances across competitions, Carvajal has scored seven times and provided 52 assists for the Blancos.
According to the aforementioned media, multiple MLS teams have inquired about the 30-year-old footballer, who, yes, would be costly for any American team, as the club has a contract with Real Madrid until 2025.
The possibility of entering huge money is not ruled out at the Bernabéu, though plan ‘A’ will be to hunt for a high-level signing who can compete for the demarcation with Carvajal and strive for Dani to return to his best level.
The Spaniard has had numerous muscle problems, which has caused him to miss numerous games, forcing Lucas Vázquez, Nacho, and even Fede Valverde to play positions that are not natural for any of them.
Even if they recruit a right-back, Real Madrid would want to keep Carvajal beyond the summer transfer window, according to the report.
The Merengues have been connected with a number of right-backs recently, notably Chelsea’s Reece James.
Meanwhile, Carvajal could have European suitors, with recent speculations tying him to Bayern Munich. However, according to Defensa Central, Real Madrid may not even consider selling the 30-year-old, let alone listen to any bids that come their way.
