Real Madrid appears to be keen on signing the star player of Tottenham Hotspur and national teammate of Lionel Messi, Cristian Romero soon. Cristian Romero, the 24-year-old player had established himself as a starter for the outfit of Antonio Conte since he arrived on loan from 2021 Atalanta. Following an incredible debut campaign, Tottenham Hotspur secures the services of the center-back of Argentine on a permanent move for about £42 million the previous summer.
The right-feet defender with the talent of tackling and passing, Cristian Romero has become a cog in the wheel in the preferred three-man defense of Conte. In December 2022, Romero helped Argentina to their 3rd FIFA World Cup trophy with robust performances. He appeared in 6 out of 7 appearances in World Cup Qatar, helping his team register 3 clean sheets.
According to reports, Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid has earmarked Romero as the target for the summer transfer window. Even though Josko Gvardiol, the RB Leipzig center-back is taken to be the top defensive target, Carlo Ancelotti, the Los Blancos boss also appears to live the former player of Juventus.
Cristian Romero has a contract that continues until 2027 June at Tottenham Hotspur’s home ground. His present value is £53 million. If the Belgrano youth becomes a part of Real Madrid in the upcoming year, he would give good competition to David Alaba, Antonio Rudiger, and Eder Militao. The likes of Jesus Vallejo and Nacho Fernandez are believed to be obtaining a departure before the upcoming 2023-24 term.
Cristiano Romero had previously praised Lionel Messi after they won the World Cup 2022. He said that if someone knows about football, they will know that there is no player like him.
