Real Madrid are interested in signing Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez, according to reports in Spain.
Sanchez joined Spurs in the summer of 2017 for a club record fee from Ajax. The Colombian made 41 appearances in his debut season and has followed that up with 15 appearances so far this term.
Before he arrived at Tottenham, there were rumours Real Madrid and Barcelona had considered pursuing him while he was an Ajax player, but Spurs swooped first and the 22-year-old is now a vital member of first-team squad.
According to Spanish outlet Don Ballon, Madrid are plotting a €65 million (£58.5) for Sanchez, who is said to be frustrated with being used as a substitute.
Sanchez played regularly last season because of Toby Alderweireld’s injury and contract situation. Now Alderweireld is back in Mauricio Pochettino’s good books, Sanchez’s playing time has been reduced slightly.
That said, Sanchez has struggled with injuries of his own and I’d be surprised if he is concerned with the current minutes he is getting.
Alderweireld is likely to leave at some point over the next 18 months, meaning Sanchez should be a guaranteed starter in the near future.
