According to several reports, Real Marid have joined the high voltage race for signing RB Leipzig youngster Dani Olmo. Los Blancos have been looking to set up a young midfield line-up next season, as Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are in their 30s.

And doing the same they have already added Eduardo Camavinga this season after paying 30 million for Rennes. But they still need some more midfield options, following which they target Dani Olmo.

The youngster starting his career with Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy made his move to GNK Dinamo Zagreb in 2014. Playing in the B side of the Croatian club, Olmo rose up to the first team in 2015. And making his first-team debut he played 124 times, scoring 34 goals and 28 assists in his five-year stay.

In 2020, Olmo chose to have a new challenge as he signed for RB Leipzig in the winter transfer window. The Bundesliga side paid cash of about 25 million to secure the services of Dani Olmo. Since his debut for the German side, he has racked up 63 appearances, scoring 12 goals and 14 assists. And now following his exceptional talent the youngster has emerged as a hot target for top European clubs.

The latest to join the race for signing Dani Olmo is Real Madrid who will be rivaling the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United. Madrid has top midfield stars and there is no doubt in it, but it includes aged players like Modric and Kroos. And to replace them, Madrid have been on a mission to sign young players in order to secure the future. Following which Real Madrid considers Dani Olmo a viable option next season.
