Report: Real Madrid want to sign Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold in dream move to join Kylian Mbappe

Real Madrid want Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold to join Kylian Mbappe at the Santiago Bernabeu next season according to a report.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side need a rebuild due to the aging nature of his squad and while Mbappe remains the number one target, Los Blancos want to make a ‘dream’ move for Liverpool right-back

It depends central defense who say Ancelotti has already met the club to discuss transfer targets for next season.

Dani Carvajal struggled to contain Mbappe in Tuesday’s Champions League defeat in Paris by conceding a penalty and they suggest concerns over the right-back position could mean Florentino Perez tries to sign Alexander-Arnold in a “Galatic” transfer.

The publication goes on to claim that the player would be open to a transfer having already won the biggest trophies with Liverpool, but negotiations with the Merseyside club are said to be next to impossible.

Author’s verdict

Do not arrive! Liverpool will not sell and Trent is highly unlikely to trade this fantastic squad under Jurgen Klopp for a move to aging Madrid.
